This is the best hotel I have stayed in while in Ocean Shores. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The staff is so friendly and the rooms have everything you would need on a trip away from home. I was nothing but impressed.

We had a nice stay. So happy that this place is dog friendly. He had a blast. We enjoyed the 90s-ish motif. It helped us to unwind and slow down a bit! Complete with a VCR! The unit was clean, quiet, and well maintained. We had everything we needed to enjoy each other's company!

Very Pet friendly for dogs like our Yellow Lab. Loved seeing dog dishes and treats waiting on the counter upon check-in. First floor access to grass with bag stations another big plus. Room was much more than we envisioned. Basically a 1 bedroom condo fully furnished. Movie rentals with latest and greatest. Winter rates were unbelievably affordable. It was our...

Great view, friendly staff, lots of space. We got such a deal - getting a nice, clean, spacious condo, with a view. It was very quiet. The decor style is a bit dated, but we were usually looking at the ocean so we didn't care. Loved it!

This is a cozy place with great ocean views on the third floor. Suites have fire places and kitchens are fully stocked :) Both were spacious, clean, and well furnished. This is my new go to for ocean shores. I've been twice, once in a studio, and once in a one room suite.

Originally planned to bring our dog but made last minute change of plans. It was a nice surprise to walk into our room and discover it was actually more like a 1 bdrm apartment with an amazing ocean view and special amenities to greet our pup! Staff was extremely personable and willing to help make our stay as enjoyable as...

The staff and Shannon (the manager) were incredible from the start of booking the room to check out. When we arrived the studio that we booked did not have a fireplace. We asked if we could upgrade and they gave us not only a fire place but a suite at the same rate. The rooms are cozy and feel like...

“The only criticisms we had of the room were that the bathroom sink drain was slow and the kitchen clock had stopped, and while Housekeeping should probably catch things like that, I didn't consider them significant enough to affect my overall rating.”
