After reading the details of Elizabeth Pointe Lodge I was excited to make the trip for my birthday. Sadly, it was not as described. PROS: Lovely beach with beach chairs. umbrellas, and beach towels. Lovely view and porch. CONS: The more expensive oceanfront view rooms are directly over the porch below. Partiers on the porch carried on LOUDLY until 2 a.m. making it impossible to sleep. I wanted to take lunch with me on a bike ride, only to find out that all lunches must be ordered 24 hrs in advance (website states "beach menu available all day"). After a day of bike riding I wanted to take a bath in the oversized tub, only to find that the tub would not hold water at all. Waited over 1 hr for breakfast one morning. Teenaged servers are very nice, but desperately need training. We had to ask repeatedly every day for missing items from the order - salt, pepper, flatware, and other items are often not brought and one must wait and wait for needed items. Happy hour "hors d'oeuvres" consisted of olives or tomatoes on a toothpick, or a parfait (with wine or beer?), or an apple slice wrapped with cheese. No maid service on one of the days so no clean towels for the morning shower. Housekeeping staff leaves at 1pm and if they missed your room you are out of luck. Dinner is not served at this hotel and town is a 2 mile walk (no uber or taxi service), so be sure to have a car if you stay here, I asked for a 1 hr late check out, hoping they might make up for the inconveniences, and was given only 30 minutes. I would not recommend the hotel for more than a one night stay at the most.…
Pros: perfect oceanfront location, amazing porches, windows that open to let in the breeze and sound of the waves, lots of breakfast options, really nice to have coffee/water/beach towels/chairs/umbrellas freely and readily available, convenient afternoon reception. Cons: dated shower/tub/toilet, very average housekeeping (sink/shower not cleaned once during a week-long stay, wood floors sticky from some sort of cleaning fluid), friendly but inconsistent wait staff and front desk service—please give these enthusiastic young people a bit more training. Bottom line: this place is great if you plan to get out on the beach or head off to explore all the history, nature, and delicious restaurants that Amelia has to offer! Not ideal if you are planning to hang inside and be pampered.
The facility was very nice, oceanfront, and close to downtown shopping and dining. The staff was friendly yet appeared very young and inexperienced. Breakfast on the veranda, apparently they are in desperate need of a cook. I complained after waiting an hour and 15 minutes for an egg and scone and a late breakfast so not a high demand. I had a planned on having dinner at the inn - After such poor breakfast service decided to go elsewhere.
My husband and I stayed at Elizabeth Pointe Lodge last weekend for a sweet couples getaway. From the moment we arrived, the staff was welcoming, warm and so accommodating. Props to Sam, Shawna, Carly and Thor for going the extra mile. Some almond milk, please? Done! Suggestions for where to eat? One for every craving! Their service is what really made our stay so enjoyable. The property was quaint and homey, and our room was perfect. We loved the breakfast every morning. Not continental and not a full menu--but definitely enough for us. We really enjoyed the coffee and the scenic view of the beach! It was just steps away--priceless!
We loved our Tradewinds room with beautiful beach view last year so returned this year and found Inn badly needs refreshing and care. Light bulbs out, painting needs to be done, poor service from maids, sink not cleaned. Breakfast in charming space appalling. Scrambled eggs served cold. No garnish on plates. Fruit cup tired and inedible. Nightly reception for guests, decent wine, but crackers from a box, with velveeta like cheese in a little container. Serve chips or nuts instead or nothing. Sadly won’t return because we loved the location and room design. Need owners to care about this once classy resort.
