The #1 reason we stayed at the Riptide was location location location and it did not disappoint. The rooms, even though they have been updated, they were not done very well but very comfortable and clean. The tiki bar was fun but if you want a quiet place to stay this is not the place. Would I return again? Yes...

Got there at check in time, but the room wasn't quite ready. Samantha in the front office was very nice and asked if we could wait another half hour. She offered us late check out for the inconvenience. We walked down the Broadwalk and got some lunch and she called my cell to let us know it was ready. Like...

My new wife and I spent our wedding night here, and we loved every minute of it. The beach breeze was pleasant as we walked along the beach. The sunrise in the morning and the local shops made the whole experience wonderful. We would stay here again.

Hotel is older and dated but clean. Can't beat the location. Loved the live entertainers singing under the cabana with the awesome tiki bar ... If your looking for a Ritz Carlton this is not for you but if looking for fun check it out..

Great room and accommodation for a good price, make good cost for the offer. Just missed a lot of the room services as there is no service included. Parking is permitted in front of the hotel and neighborhood is very safe.
