I love that all the rooms are ocean front and individually owned and appointed. You can go to their website to pick the room you want (pictures of each individual room are presented there). I chose a non-smoking/non pet friendly room, but those options are available to those who smoke or who want to bring their fur babies. The lady...

Beautiful room right on the beach. Wonderful sandy beaches that were not crowded and everyone walking the area was very friendly. Wonderful having an extra counter and sink with dishes in the cupboards. Neat and tidy. Front desk was helpful in advice for nearby dinner choices. Would stay again but would like the 3rd floor for a better view. We...

The front desk attendant who told me she was the manager was extremely rude. We arrived for check in at 3:00 and told our room wasn't ready and would call us when it was ready. No apology and no offer of compensation! Got a call over an hour later and when I told her that I was out an hour...

The deck is nice & right at the dunes so nice to sit next to the ocean which is only reason this gets a 2. Positives stop there. The woman at the check-in is rude! We wanted to leave the minute we met her. Then, entering the room, it smelled moldy or stale. We had to open the doors &...

This is a great location, right on the un-crowded beach. Love that this place is pet friendly and while we didn't bring pets with us, we did enjoy seeing all the dogs out and about. I thought the cleanliness of the room could have been better. It wasn't terrible but there was a little goop on the front of the...

The hotel is older, a little worn around the edges, but it's very clean. The room was decorated in a beachy way that made us smile. The location couldn't be better—you're right on the beach. And the beach itself is uncrowded. Staff was super friendly and helpful. They were out there every day cleaning the grounds as well as the...

Desk clerk friendly and helpful. But room subpar. Beds not very comfortable. Sound proofing nil. Heard every step people above us took. Dropped earring and when got down to find it realized beds had not been cleaned under in quite awhile. We were planning on a 3 nite stay but left after one. Moved up beach to cheaper , cleaner...

My wife and I have stayed at the Sea Vista several times in the past few years. We now go at least twice each summer. The prices are very reasonable, the rooms are always clean and it's a 30 second walk to get the sand between our toes. It's not a 5 star place, but it's comfortable.

If you are looking for a no frills place to stay while you spend your time on the beach, then this is the place for you! The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and the beach is relatively quiet. There are no elevators. Lots of steps. Even to get to the beach...you climb the stairs up and over the...

This property is older. The staff is limited. The amenities are nonexistent. Still the best vacation we've ever had! You MUST try to get the Honeymoon Suite. It has nothing to do with your current romantic state and everything to do with room location. If you are looking to relax and totally reset your life this is the place to...
