We were pleasantly surprised with the cozy feeling of Windward. Our room was very clean comfortable and well supplied with what we needed for our visit. Michelle greeted us and remained cordial and helpful throughout. Shower necessities were on the wall in dispensers so a quick shower was convenient. We did miss a view of the ocean but our overall stay was lovely.

A beautiful stay at Windward at the Beach. Our yearly visit to Beach Haven had been postponed by Covid and finally we were able to go back to our favorite spot. Windward is a wonderful inn right next to the beach, convenient to the Surflight Theater, Murphy’s grocery, Uncle Will’s, mini golf, all the little shops and a short walk to the amusement and water parks. The rooms are fresh, clean and comfortable. There is an outdoor shower to take advantage of after a beach day. You can cook and barbecue and then segue over to some live entertainment. The staff is wonderful and attentive, bagels and coffee on Saturday morning. Such a lovely stay.

This was our second stay and it was just a fantastic as last summer. You can’t beat the location, the property is so well kept , welcoming, and beyond clean. David and the staff really make you feel like you are friends visiting. I love sitting outside in the evening taking in the summer beach vibe. The coffee bar and porch in the am are lovely. The two outside showers are large and very well stocked, I’m already looking forward to next summers stay.

We had a great experience staying here. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and David's hospitality was top notch. We stayed with our two young boys, and the quick walk to the beach and to restaurants and shops was exceptional, we hardly ever had to drive. On top of the that, the park next door is great to let the kids run. The hotel is very quiet, so we did have to try extra hard to keep the boys quiet when inside (they wanted to run and laugh all day!). Other than that, the stay was stress free. We highly recommend staying here, especially with the kids.
