We stayed at the Beach Shack for the July 13th weekend and enjoyed every part of our stay. We usually stay at Congress Hall and wanted to try the Beach Shack. Lucky for us they had a room that would accommomy wife and I along with our four children. I especially enjoyed not having to carry chairs etc. to the beach. The service all around from the beach to the bar was excellent and a pleasure to be around. We will be back next year.

It is a little dated and no elevator but the staff more than make up for any imperfections that are strictly cosmetic. We found it to be extremely clean. But again their staff from front desk, maid service, parking attendants to the beach service staff were all truly remarkable.

The rooms are sufficient, not the Waldorf. The people are what makes this place great. Excellent service and gracious people. Go across the street, get chairs, umbrellas and towels set up... when your done on the beach, go back to the hotel for a dip in the pool. They associate themselves to the Rusty Nail restaurant on the same property. This place got our money once and we never ate there again. If you want to be able to enjoy an open bar across from the ocean, it's nice. Taking kids for lunch and/or dinner, you are better off at many other spots in town.

Room Tip: If you get a room by the pool, it's convenient to use the bathroom, etc. and very quiet at night. If you are in front of the bar, there are more people and activity at night and you have to walk across the parking lot for the pool.

We stayed one night and didn't have a reservation for the second night. The hotel only had a three bedroom suite for the two of us the second night. Kristin at the front desk looked at other properties they run without any luck. She went out of her way to find us another place to stay outside of her properties. It was more tha we wanted to pay however it was still cheaper than the Beach Shack's three bedroom suite. I said that we would the price at the place Kristin found for us, but suggested that they should take our money instead of another hotel. Kristin talked to the general manager and they gave us the Beach Shack suite for the same price as the hotel room they found down the street. We had a great time at the Beach Shack and the Rusty Nail all because of Kristin going out of her way.

Being we never had been to The Beach Shack, all we had was comments made from other guests.I do not understand the negative comments, We LOVED our stay at The Beach Shack. The room was clean, bed linens white and crisp, and beds were so comfortable. The bathroom was clean, great water pressure for a hot morning shower. The people were more than helpful answering any questions . The beach attendants were friendly and helpful. The housekeeping staff friendly as well.. The air condition was more than adequate. The only complaint was that the furniture , especially the couch could be updated but it was not horrible.Also maybe a small table for putting on makeup.Rusty Nail's outside entertainment between 5-9 was pleasurable and we met some great people. Looking forward to going back again, soon!

Room Tip: although pet friendly we were given a room not near pets and really never even heard a dog bark..does not have an elevator but will provide help to carry bags to your room
