The staff at this hotel was very accommodating, especially the front desk person, Meghan and the manager Paula. But the hotel needs updating and the cleanliness could improve! Right on the beach with great access. The beach chairs and umbrellas are fantastic, but pretty close together so if you hate smoke as much as we do, you better locate near... More

The staff in this hotel are some of the friendliest I have ever met. The reception desk, housekeeping, the Beach staff all went out of the way to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. When we extended our stay by one day, the receptioni desk was very accommodating. On our arrival, we noticed the toilet was not flushing properly. Within... More

I don't usually get around to writing reviews. I knew I had to give this hotel kudos! They have such an exceptional staff who is more than helpful and fun! Megan was the first person to greet us at the front desk. She was very accommodating and got us checked in early. She directed us to places to eat, get... More

The beachfront location of this hotel does not make up for the chipped paint, lumpy mattress, stained and bubbling ceiling, and dingy carpet. The staff was very helpful and kind and we loved having umbrella and chair service included in our stay. Other places charge as much as $30 per day for that. Still... We won't be back.

Went here with 2 other families... Rooms were great. Customer service was very good and breakfast was pretty decent. The best part was that it's a beach front property and have an umbrella and beach chairs reserved for you as well. We were able to rent boogie boards right there as well. We had a great stay and would return.

This Best Western needs updating inside and out. There are unpleasant odors in some areas of the hotel. Handy man not very friendly. Internet and TV service didn't work for us at first. Breakfast was okay. They needed to have two of particular items, as they ran out pretty quick. They were quick to replace but our food still got... More

The motel is great. Awesome view (white sands etc) comfortable beds, good breakfast. That is not what made this trip memorable. The staff at this restaurant is perhaps the best I have ever seen. Don, at the outside bar, Fritz, at the inside bar, and everybody I dealt with at the front desk was almost frighteningly friendly. You want to... More

Too Expensive for the quality of building. Building in and out was cleaned. It needs a renovation. Price was too high for this type of hotel. Service was average. Room doors had gaps, you could see the outside light.
