Very clean updated hotel, staff was very polite. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again. I would have gave it a higher rating if parking was a little closer and if the free breakfast had a few more choices.

This resort was just awful. The website is so misleading. It is nothing like it lists. There is absolutely nothing at this place to do. You can not even sit outside near the water unless you are eating at their over priced restaurant. There is not a beach there as they claim on their site.. The small bit of sand they do have there belongs to the property next to theirs and it is a no trespassing property. I was so disappointed with this weekend. 400.00 down the drain for absolutely nothing.They also offer free wifi which 99% of the time it did not work. Please don't waste your money on this place.

Stayed here for one night as a late Valentine celebration gift to surprise my boyfriend. The complimentary valet parking went well. The lobby space of the resort is not that large. We check in our room was ready. I pre-paid for a king room with a balcony. Went into the room everything appeared to be in order. We stepped out onto the balcony from our second floor room 206 and all I saw was air duct and heating systems metal everywhere. It was NO view I was mortified that they would even let a guest pay for this so called room with a balcony. I went down to the front desk immediately to request a new room and was told the hotel was full and that they may have a room without a balcony. Well I wanted the type of room that I paid to enjoy. I was told to think about it and call the front desk when I have made a decision. Well I called the front desk and was told the manager would call me back when she returned to the front desk. I received a call back 1 hour or so later by that time it was too late I had spa appointments scheduled. Our comforter had a dried blood stain on it that we noticed the next morning. To add to my disappointment the complimentary breakfast the resort offers was laughable they should just provide coffee and refer guest to the restaurant across the walkway. The resort needs some improvement. The spa was nice and the Rod n Reel Restaurant food was very good.

My newly retired group of friends and I visited the resort for the day to play bingo, slot machines, eat lunch and tour the resort. A few had visited before, but it was my first time. I enjoyed my visit, that I will return with my husband. The gaming staff and restaurant wait staff were all very helpful and friendly. Great view of the Chesapeake Bay. I heard that during the summer months, the resort hosts jazz concerts as well. The resort is also expanding. So check it out!

Stayed here for 2 nights in early February. Nice, clean room with a huge jacuzzi tub. Right on the bay. No beach nearby and there is no reason to go to the restaurant. That said, all staff were unfailingly polite and professional. The massage was one of the best ever. Plenty of slots if that's your thing, but it's not in your face. 3 minutes from a boardwalk and great restaurants Would return.
