We love Assateague island and usually come in august. This is our third stay - this time we booked a room with a kitchen. It was super clean upon arrival. We went ahead and wiped things down again because we are crazy :) we’ve been able to cook all our meals and enjoy the beach during the day. The hotel is comfortable and quiet. The pool is open but we aren’t going. There is also takeaway from the pool bar. Again, we are here to be out in nature :) couldn’t be happier with this resort (even if you don’t have a family with you). Check in was easy and we’ve seen limited people :) sharing the view from our room (New york building) and the kitchen and a wild pony.

I called very last minute after deciding my family wanted to stay another night. Shay answered the phone and found me an amazing deal, I searched all booking apps and each one said no vacancy. I explained to her that the hotel we were already staying at had misinformed us and said they had a indoor pool, well they had 2 outdoor pools and it rained the entire time. So with that being said Shay saved the day for my family and turned our trip around! Thanks girl!. Shay deserve hazard pay for working during covid-19.

Took advantage of an extended holiday weekend and stayed in in New York building. Indoor pool was fun (crowded as expected), our son loved the afternoon craft & took advantage of the free movie rental from the lobby to watch in room. The beds are comfortable and staff was very nice. The only thing constructive to say is that the walls are paper thin and the indoor pool water was a bit cold. The kids didn’t mind but a little chilly for adults- got use of the hot tub!

Thank you ChristinaMi86 for sharing your experience. We are very pleased to hear our staff and accommodations were up to the level of service as expected. Our Indoor theme pool area is heated with the air and water temperature set a comfortable 84 degrees. We monitor and record the temperatures several times a day but will look in to the records for unexpected drops, it was considerably colder outside Saturday, normally not a factor but will certainly investigate if an issue. We are glad the kids had a good time and took advantage of the activities scheduled throughout the weekend and we hope you will visit us for another great little getaway soon! Best Regards, Heather Brunning General Manager
