I have stayed many times in this hotel since 1987, and never had a bad experience. All rooms are ocean front, so there is no bad room (have stayed myself on floors 3 - 7 and can vouch for those). The beach is great and you can get drinks and some foods from a small cabana by the pool. The pool and hot tub are nice as well. We have eaten many times at the hotel's restaurant and never had a bad meal. The staff has always been nice and helpful. The rooms could use a facelift by now, as could the bathrooms, which are very small. When we went last year with 4 adults, we opted for adjacent rooms with a connecting door, which worked out very well.
Pros: Lovely ocean front views from good sized balconies. Nice beach. Good restaurant with daily specials.
Cons: Very small bathrooms.

Room Tip: There is no bad room. If you want the most quiet, choose a room on the other side of the pool. If you are above the pool area, it may be a bit noisier. But I have been there a few times and it did not bother me.

Pros: friendly staff, great views and beach access

Cons: older rooms with poor layout, small moldy bathrooms, parts of the hotel break (leaking windows, broken doors, dripping ceilings etc.) and no one fixes them
and everything is VERY slow
we showed up a little early 3:30 instead of 4 (most hotels in the area have a 3pm check in) and asked if we could get out room
they said it was not ready - okay my bad we are early
I asked to leave the luggage at the check in so I could take the kids to the pool - No they do not have room for that
Okay we will wait - they said it would be about an hour (30 minutes after check in time)
45 minutes later my husband asked when the room would be ready. They told him maybe half an hour
All in all it was after 5 when we finally got into the room
but everyone is truly nice just painfully slow

oh do not count on the internet
two members of our group needed to have a working vacation while there and it was extremely difficult. One of the 2 ended sitting in the lobby hoping the internet would last long enough to load documents and email the other worked mostly from his iphone so he could use the 4G.

over all the people, view and beach are very nice but there is MUCH room for improvement
spend the extra $20 and stay at a more modern hotel with extra pillows, working doors, windows that do not leak and no mold

Room Tip: the far ends are the quietest and do not stay near the 1st floor bar

The rooms are small and a little dated at the time we stayed. The staff however, were are very pleasant and the hotel itself is in a great location. The hotel has a restaurant and the food was fair, but I would suggest dining out. The dining area itself could've used an upgrade as well.

Although this is by no means your typical 5-star posh hotel, it had everything we needed to make our beach weekend getaway enjoyable. (1) we requested a high floor - and got the top floor, with a fabulous view of the ocean (not blocked by the dunes like at other "oceanfront" hotels (2)a great restaurant right on the property was so convenient for breakfast - the food was top rate and we didn't waste time driving around looking for a place that served breakfast (3)refrigerator and microwave in the room (4)wireless internet was free and easy to access (5)beach lounges and umbrella set up right there on the beach - no need to lug your own chairs and umbrella. Extra fee...but worth it. They even separate smokers and non-smokers so you're not breathing in smoke all day. Only a short walk to the beach - many condos you have to walk FOREVER to get there. (6)pool and hot tub also very nice and convenient. (7)pool bar - we didn't use this, but very convenient to have drinks right nearby. (8)room was just the right size - the bathroom was a little bit tight, but it was doable. Had adequate outlets for charging phones - a nice desk and chair for the computer. We had a fantastic time and would definitely book here again on our next trip to Atlantic Beach/Pine Knoll Shores!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are oceanfront - we liked the top floor. Expected a long wait for the elevators, but they came right away.

I was just there from 7/23/13 - 7/26/13. You can not beat ocean front views and the sound of the waves for the price. The food at the restaurant was very good and prices were not bad. Rooms were very clean and look freshly painted. Only negative is the bathrooms are very small but you are not there for the bathrooms. I will defiantly go back.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 318 it was at the end away from the pool and more private.
