The Atlantis is a special place created from a beautifully wooded, oceanfront site, unlike any other on the coast. Most of our units are suites with efficiency kitchens, dining, living and sleeping areas. All have patios or decks facing the surf, cable TV and all expected amenities including high-speed internet access. And yes, we do accept your pets in most units at a minimal fee. We are a very special place on the "Crystal Coast."

My husband and I have been staying at the Atlantis for over a decade. This was the first vacation we took together before we were married. We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary here this past week. I can’t believe I haven’t written a review before— maybe it’s because the rooms book up so far in advance that it feels wise to keep it a secret! LOL Even though I’m introverted, coming to the Atlantis feels like being part of a family. It’s very accommodating to dogs— dog people are just the very best. We especially love getting to see the reception staff— Marianna is always incredibly sweet and helpful. Jackie is a great conversationalist, and Debbie has been a fixture here since long before we started staying here. She knows everything there is to know and is an amazing resource! The #1 reason we love the Atlantis aside from the people is how clean it is! The grounds are beautiful and the rooms are *always* spotless. They take extensive measures for mold abatement— Ive never stayed in a mold free beachfront spot except at the Atlantis. We love that they leave “dog sheets” so that we don’t have to worry about getting the furniture furry. Going outdoors with the dogs, whether to the beach or the perfectly-sized dog park is also very pleasant. The Atlantis provides little dog poop shovels— if you’ve got your eyes peeled, you’ll find there’s always one within a few feet. We love being able to skip the plastic and throw their poop in the copious shrubbery. We have two big dogs, and the dog park is big enough for them to do zoomies and play the way they like to. I also notice that I don’t get too many big bites, so I wonder if they treat certain areas for mosquitoes. At the beach, our fuzziest boy loves to enjoy the ocean breeze on his own towel-covered lounge chair under an umbrella. The people on duty at the beach are always SO sweet, polite, and accommodating. They do a great job setting up shady spots in the sand for human and canine guests. In-room perks: every room we’ve stayed in is great! The way the Atlantis is designed ensures every guest has a view of the ocean. All porches are equipped with chairs, a footstool, and a clothesline with clothespins. There are hangers in the little closet, a broom and flyswatter, Kleenex. A nice roomy ikea dresser is a great size for all the clothes you want to bring, and with a little rearranging of the provided dinnerware, there’s plenty of space for pantry items in the cupboards. There are plenty of lamps so the ambiance is lovely even at night (no ugly overhead fluorescents like you get in some hotels). The TV and Wi-Fi work great. Most rooms we’ve stayed in have an L shaped sofa and a pull out bed. The accordion wall is one of our favorite features of the room; it does a great job at blocking out light where the bedroom half of the room is if one person wants to stay up late or sleep in. It’s only on recent trips that we ventured up to the lounge area, which is pretty cool. You can’t bring dogs up there though! We renewed our vows on the top floor deck at sunset and our friends and family met us in the lounge for pizza and brownies a la mode. It was perfect. The lounge also closes at a reasonable hour, so if you’re in one of the rooms below, you won’t be kept up late by people playing pool and ping pong. My mom, who recently joined us for the first time here, loves lounging at the pool. Dogs are not allowed in this area, either. It’s a really pretty and serene spot. The beautiful trees overhanging provide a good amount of shade. Thank you Atlantis, for all the treasured memories we’ve made here! We love you!

Stayed a few nights in July. I now have a new favorite place. Retro done right. Minimal efficiency room, perfect. Not too much, but just enough, small cook-top, {go buy a bag of fresh shrimp from some guy in a truck and boil-em" up}, fridge, micro-wave, couch, comfy chair, great bed. Friendly staff, well-kept property. Wi-fi outstanding, the beach service is worth it in itself. You will need a car, nothing within walking distance, {a plus IMHO}, all you will ever need within 5 minutes. No elevator, as an arthritic Ol' man, the third floor was a chore, and I will request a ground floor next time. {I survived}. Only one ice machine, but that is the ONLY thing I can find to pick-on,

We traveled to Atlantis Lodge, booking a room for each family unit, with our 4 adult children + their kids + their dogs from July 31-Aug 4. Atlantis went to the effort to place us in adjacent rooms so that we shared the deck. Being able to mingle as a larger group out on the deck was fun and convenient. The walk to the sand from the lodge over their boardwalk which traverses the dune plantings is short. The swimming pool is smallish but very pleasingly designed, especially the very shallow section for the littlest guests, which is nicely shaded by mature trees. The most impressive part about the whole property is that it is authentic mid-century modern archietecture and furnishings, but the ownership has done a fantastic job of lovingly maintaining the property, keeping everything clean and in top working-order. Many small details were evident around the property like children's toys and beach accessories available on the patio, a misting system to cool the hot sand en route to the boardwalk from the beach, and pristine linens with sailcloth top covers provided for our pets. If I was to *search* my mind for any negatives, I can only come up with two: the WiFi was weak and the lodge is not especially close to any popular fast food venues. I cannot really fault AL for either of these, however, and overall think they have created a family beach trip jewel!

Being a guest feels like you are family. The seating areas around the property were great for the ocean views. This property is tucked away and a true gem in the area. Pet friendly as well. Will definitely be back!

(Minor negative) We stayed in a K room which is a small room. It really needed one more chair and a small table. We were basically forced to eat and sit on the bed at all times. The price is high for that room with such skimpy accommodations. That said it was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The pillows are heavenly! It smelled great, the view was great, the beach access is top notch! There’s a lounge with a pool table and ping pong, grills, giant jenga, etc. The pool is salt water and it’s awesome! Overall, It’s an old motel but it’s well kept and obviously well managed. The employees are always busy! On a scale of 5, it’s a 6! We will definitely go back if we can!!!

I can't say enogh wonderful things about this place. From the dogpark to the most beautiful swimming pool ever....it's perfect from beginning to end. Everyone was so friendly and hard-working. Every inch of the property was not only clean, but beautifully appointed with trees and shrubs. Our room was large and full of amenities. The staff sets up umbrellas and chairs our on the beach for customers! There is ample space to recreate with family and friends - a beautiful covered deck area with a grill and very comfortable seating. No wonder they stay sold out! I can't wait to get back there.

We stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary & it was very relaxing! I’ll say I wasn’t crazy about staying at a hotel because you never know what you’re going to get. I couldn’t believe what a gem this place is! We stayed 3 nights & we’d definitely return. It was so peaceful & quiet. Every morning we awoke to birds chirping outside our room. Not something I’m used to at the beach, other than the obvious seagulls. The room we had was a King room with no kitchen but that was fine as we’d planned on eating out for the few days we were there anyway. The bed was really comfortable. The bathroom was a little small but was not a big deal because it was clean!! The grounds were kept clean & organized. Rocking chairs sitting facing the beach on the deck were perfect if you didn’t want to go down onto the beach. I noticed a dog washing station which I thought was pretty awesome. I know it’s a pet friendly place but I felt this was a nice touch for people bringing their pets. Great place, great atmosphere & everybody we came in contact with was helpful. Marissa was nice as she helped me make the reservation while Debra was so sweet getting me checked in & gave restaurant suggestions when she found out about our anniversary.

There were so many positives that I don’t know where to begin! Clean and well kept rooms and environment! They have thought of everything! Beach chairs and umbrellas provided, a great salt water pool in a divine little hideaway, and rocking chairs everywhere! Plus my favorite, a hanging wicker chair that overlooked the beach and was perfect for afternoon reading! The linens were heavenly and the kitchenette stocked perfectly and with super large coffee mugs! The best part, I could have my dog with me! We can not wait to go back!

What a lovely place! It's relatively small with all the rooms on its three stories walk-up facing the ocean and the beach. The rooms have a fully equipped kitchen, and the rooms are updated. There is plenty of hot water and a very comfortable bed. Cleanliness is taken very seriously with even a sanitized ice scoop for the ice machine provided. The beach is very close with direct access from the lodge. There are lots of bird feeders, hence birds. The Lodge has taken well care of its natural area in front of the beach. This has become our go-to place on the beach. Warning: reserve early as it is very popular, some say with a cult-like following.
