“Great get-away or family vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We stayed here the last week of January and it was a great central location to visit our adult children who live in the area. We had Suite 501 and it was a convenient unit with two balconies. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bedroom had all the necessary space two people need, plus a large mirrored closet, a dresser, and two night stands, as well as two chairs. The lighting was excellent, with two lamps and two reading lamps over the bed as well. There was even an iPod docking clock!
The bathroom area was interesting - very roomy vanity area and tons of towels. The bath/toilet area was cramped - a huge Jacuzzi tub with shower, but very little floor space otherwise.
The kitchen was excellent - all appliances, including microwave; fully stocked cabinets, icemaker in freezer, and lots of counter space. The island had barstools to catch a quick meal, and there were books on the shelves facing the living room and a radio there too. The couch had seen better days, but the rest of the furniture was in great condition and plentiful. Excellent lighting here as well.
The staff was superb. The indoor pool was difficult to get in and out (no steps, just ladders) but our visiting family had a great time in it. My only complaint would be the construction next door for the new Hilton that began some mornings at 7:30, which did NOT add to relaxation. Bulldozers and cranes and loud back-up alarms are not restful. But this was NOT the 4 Sails' fault! The 33rd Street Cafe had reasonably priced breakfasts and lunches too.

Room Tip: The indoor pool is on the 4th floor, and the 5th overlooks it. The hall gets a little warm/humid an...

We were looking for something clean and affordable with a jacuzzi tub in the room, and this was the place! We were only there for one night so we didn't need or make use of the kitchen other than to pop some popcorn in the microwave and keep some drinks cold in the fridge. There seemed to be everything you would need to spend an extended amount of time though. Dishes, knives, silverware, etc. (even a wine opener, which we always forget to take) all wrapped in plastic. Being an extended stay type of hotel they do not provide coffee(just the coffee maker) and toiletries, other than soap. Bed was pretty comfy. Towels and linens were typical of what you find in most affordable hotels. There is a small pool on the 4th floor. We didn't use it but did stop by and check it out. It's a nice atrium kind of room so the sun can shine in. Not hot tub. I guess they have bikes and beach chairs that are free for guest to use.It was the off season and cold so we didn't use any of that but it would be a nice perk when the weather is nice.We didn't try the cafe either. As others have said this place definetly shows it's age and could use some updating. I don't mind older if it's clean, and it was clean! It's not a luxury hotel. There are plenty of those along the same strip if it's worth it to you to pay the price for that. If clean, comfortable and affordable on the beach is what you want than this is a nice place. I would would stay here again!

[iminent=txCsqcgUWfOB] Stayed here for one night. Had room 402. Faces ocean. Amazing views. Clean room. Good size. At night it's a little sketchy outside but it's not too bad.
. A great place for a relaxing get away.

We've been going to The Four Sails for the last 18 years and although we don't get the chance to go every year, we do enjoy our stay every time we go. My only complaint would be that it's starting to show it's age and look tired and needs to be updated.
The staff have always been friendly as well as house keeping. The rooms are always clean also.
There's a small parking garage on site and is not suited for larger vehicles, but I have a mini-van and have managed it without problems. Longer and taller vehicles wouldn't fit though and would have to park in another lot of theirs, two block over.
I'll be going back when I can, and hopefully they'll resolve these issues in time.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ends of the building will have an ocean front view and the sun coming up in the morning...

My family stayed here for several days over Christmas. The staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating. Our room was clean, comfortable, spacious, quiet, and serene. We had everything we needed in our suite. The kitchen was equipped with the basics, the bedroom was comfortable, and the livingroom area was nice. Having two balconies was an added bonus, and we enjoyed going out on both (one faced the street, and was fun for "people watching". The other was ocean front and great for coffee and a good book). A great place for a relaxing get away. We would definitely stay there, and would refer a friend!

I came into the Four Sails through RCI for a week in December with my boyfriend. I was impressed how quick and easy check-in was. The king sized suite was perfect for two people. It came equipped with everything you might need. Nice sized kitchen with stove, microwave, full refrigerator, plenty of counter space and a dishwasher. The living room has plenty of seating with a pull out couch a 4 extra chairs. There were also two high top bar stools that looked into the kitchen which was nice. There was also a bookshelf included with a nice stereo which we enjoyed. The room was nice with a king sized bed and a flat screen TV. With a big sized closet, dresser and a nightstand there was plenty of storage area for your personal items. I liked about the room that there was an extra vanity area to get ready at that had a big mirror (and an addition pull out make-up mirror) a sink and lots of room for all my hair and makeup items. The bathroom was nice with the biggest Jacuzzi tub. Loved it. The balcony was perfect too with two doors (one in the bedroom and one in the living room) that stretched across the whole room. The walk to the room in the hallway was kind of scary though since we were on the 12th floor and its just a balcony looking over the parking lot with no glass or anything. If you are afraid of heights you might want to request a lower floor. Parking was okay, the garage is kind of tight but since it was winter i always had a spot on the ground floor. There is daily housekeeping that come and take the trash and bring towels which was cool, staff was very friendly every time. The front desk was nice and very accommodating when it came to anything we needed. The pool area and some of the hallways and entrances could use some updating but other than that everything was very nice. I would stay here again. :] thank you.

This was our third time staying at the Four Sails Resort. I knew to expect a resort that is slightly dated but one that was spotless clean, well decorated with spacious rooms, windows in kitchen and bath, two balconies (den/bedroom), convertible sofa in den, large closets, two flat screen tvs, free wireless, full kitchen with pots/pans/dished/etc (and we took advantage of that!), dvd player with full speaker system, tight parking, guest laundry, on site cafe, free bicycles which rent for $10 to $20/hour at other beach spots, free computer in lobby, eighth floor sun deck, fitness room with dry sauna and weights, reasonably priced video rentals, and very accommodating, friendly and highly ethical customer service. This time we had a jacuzzi tub as well. And the indoor pool was just steps from our fourth floor location. Since this was the off season, we didn't mind that our bedroom faced Atlantic Blvd. However, during the summer months, be sure to bring ear plugs because the street noise might disturb your sleep. The balcony off the den area was a perfect spot to take in the beautiful ocean views, people watch and take in the view of the annual Holiday Light show for free (those who drove down the boardwalk had to pay $10 per car).

The Four Sails is a few blocks from a large Harris Teeter grocery store and across the street from a delicious pizza joint, the Pizzeria.

BTW, it is a timeshare and I'm not a timeshare owner. But it didn't matter, because I got an excellent rate using this TripAdvisor site (almost half off). Now while there if you want to purchase a Four Sails timeshare, they have bargain basement sales offers with no pressure sales. But be warned, when walking up and down Atlantic Ave, there will be lots of smiling pressure sales people at every other block or so, attempting to sign you up for their 90 minute timeshare 'tour' and 'gift'. Oh and before I close this review, I have a question for you. Have you ever left something of value to you in a hotel room and called back to find out it wasn't there...it had mysteriously disappeared? Well, I left something of value and called back to inquire about it. Not only did the cleaning staff turn my item in, but the management is mailing it to me at no charge. Now, that's customer service!
