“Very Clean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The room was very clean- I really enjoyed the down comforters. The room looked newly renovated. Shower always had hot water- which is impressive for the size of the hotel! Beach access was easy and the pool was clean! The staff was very nice and helpful....breakfast was great (real eggs & bacon!).

Stayed one night at the hotel May 3rd for our 25th Anniversary getaway of the South East. The front desk was very friendly at both check in/out. Breakfast in the morning was great with lots of choices & was a bonus since it was included in the price. Enjoyed our visit at this hotel.

Not the fanciest place in the world, but our room was clean, had a balcony with ocean view, delicious breakfast with a large choice of items and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel. It's definitely the best deal in the area with an ocean view. Wish I could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: We were 2nd floor near the stairs and it was great, but I think any of the ocean view rooms would be...

Very old hotel. Lobby seemed to have been redone, and was nice, clean and comfortable. Otherwise, commons areas were not clean, old and worn, as was our room. The beach access was wonderful - great location. Good restaurants very close by. The pool areas was clean. Lots of dogs on the property - we did not have an issue with this, and did not hear noise, but may bother some. Breakfast was typical hotel free breakfast, but what we expected. Front desk staff was, however, very professional and helfpul. We had planned to stay only one night, and would not plan to stay more.

Room Tip: Choose high floor to avoid pets in this pet friendly hotel

Thank you for letting us know about your stay. We regret that your positive experience with our lobby did not extend to your room.

This is obviously an old motel, as there is a weird steep ramp put in to accommodate wheelchairs, etc. It was difficult to climb (we don't have wheelchairs), so we opted for the steps most of the time. The bed was very comfortable, the room was very clean. The pool was a good temperature, and not crowded. An easy walk over the dunes on a wooden sidewalk, to the ocean. Nice guy, Zach, renting umbrellas & chairs, friendly lifeguards at the base of the dunes (Jordan, Matt). The ocean temp was a little too cool, although there were people in there. We spent 2 days on the beach all day, with a breeze to keep us cool. The housekeeping staff was efficient and always spoke. The little balcony was nice to sit on and relax. It took a while for us to get the hang of the air conditioner, but found that if we set it to "60", the room was comfortable (felt like 70 degrees). The free breakfast was good and very filling. My husband loved the Bacon so much , that on the last day, he ate 12 slices & asked the dining room manager which brand they use !!!!! (It's SYSCO). I found a lost gem stone in the elevator, so if anyone is reading this who lost it, please email me & describe it ... A fun vacation !!!!!

Room Tip: we enjoyed being on the 3rd floor, because we had a great view of the pool, the street (HWY 12) and...

The hotel was clean, the breakfast had decent variety, and the staff was super friendly and professional. The location is what brought us and this hotel is perfectly situated on the beach and close to a couple of GREAT restaurants. Highly recommended for anyone and especially people with kids.

Clean large room, very good breakfast, friendly helpful staff. Our room overlooked the ocean, which had chairs and umbrellas available for rent. Walking distance to several restaurants and gift shops. The only downside for me was the very noisy AC and doors that had to slam shut. We ate a dinner there and were happily surprised. Not the greatest place to stay but worth the visit.
