It hurts my heart to see reviews of poor experiences at the Whaler. We have been coming to the Whaler at least once a year for the past 20+ years. If management has been a problem as some indicate, it will be discussed at the weekly owner meeting. My own personal experience at the Whaler has been different. Continuous maintenance... More

It is right on the ocean. I love there is a grass area between building and sand with porch swings, chairs, grills, picnic tables and fish cleaning station. There is also lighting there at night. We had a 2 bedroom/2 bath unit. Baths are small, 1 has shower only. Sleeper sofa, queen bed & 2 twins. It was furished with... More

I have been going to the whaler inn since the 80's. We went this weekend after a long while. The first thing that happened was a large black bug fell out of the sofa bed when we pulled it out and ran down the floor through a crack. There was trash under the bed from the guests before us that... More

We have been coming here about 9 years. Over the last 9 years, we have bought 5 units, so that tells you how much we like it here. We chose to time share and they do have units for sale, but they also rent units as well. It is a nice relaxing place to come, its not crowded and you... More

This place must have been something....about 30 years ago. The positives: Beautiful oceanfront view. Not crowded. Loved the yard swing. Pool and hot tub were clean. Negatives: Unit wasn't nice There were areas where the wallpaper was peeling and there were water spots on the ceiling. Also, there was a horrible smell of rotting fish coming out of one of... More

I am a "if you don't have something nice to say, say nothing at all" person - but my family and I had an experience with the front desk staff of this resort that was so rude as to be disturbing. This property is comprised of investment property condos that are rented out by the owners through an onsite management... More

This is a great Inn - right on the beach. Units are for sale and owned, but rented out when available. We were on the third floor in a 2 bedroom unit with a pullout couch in the living room. One room had a queen bed and bath, the 2nd room had 2 twin beds and then we also had... More

This place can't be beat for the awesome ocean views and proximity to the beach. It's clean and well kept at a very decent price. No complaints. We have been coming here for years and will continue. Plus they have excellent free wifi! Indoor pool too for rainy days.

We made a last minute decision to travel to Camp Lejeune to visit my daughter's boyfriend on Easter weekend. We were looking for an oceanfront place to enjoy that wasn't too far away from the Camp and was also big enough for us and of course, available. Honestly, this wasn't my first choice (based on some of the reviews on... More
