  • Older travelers

    Quality of room. Price. Total smoke-free. Cleanliness of common areas. Free Wi-fi in room. Location & view.

    Were told to wash dishes before we left. No dishwasher. Sign in cupboard states that all dishes are washed and sanitized according to VA health requirements. How does staff know that dishes were used in order to sanitize?

  • Older travelers

    Great view, very comfortable and quiet, delicious breakfasts, a wonderful location

    An overabundance of ants in and around the kitchen sink. The design of the bathroom toilet area...the toilet seat could not go all the way up, consequently it kept hitting me in the back when I used it. Poorly designed.

  • Group of friends

    The location was great....we had a ocean balcony view. Room rates were reasonable, the weekend rates are outrageous. Housekeeping department was good, always helpful whenever we needed something.

    The front desk staff are not welcoming and absolutely rude! I have never been treating with so much disrespect in my life. I was attempting to ask the lady at the front desk a question one night, but did not realize she was on the phone. She slammed the phone down and screamed the answer to me. I was so mortified, I didn't even think to get her name so that I could report her. The elevator was a problem everyday we stayed there. Honestly, next time I will stay at another hotel even if I have to pay double the price!!

  • Family with children

    The hotel was right on the beach and walking distance to local shops and place to eat.

    The hotel doesn't have an outdoor pool and on the first night 1 of the elevators wouldn't open on the 4th floor (the next 2 nights it worked fine).

  • Family with children

    The staff were very courteous and helpful. Having a full Kitchen in our room was convienent as well.

    The elevators were very slow and made us a bit nervous when the doors opened and closed so slowly.

  • Couple

    The complimentary breakfast, kitchens in room, and oceanfront view.

  • Family with children

    The ease of shopping and the boardwalk.

  • Family with children

    I like that every room has an oceanfront balcony.

    There were only 2 elevators for the whole 8 floors, and staff had to use them for service as well. The stairs would've been an option but they lead outside and were locked from the outside so you can't get in that way. I wish the hot tub had been in the same area as the pool, because I could've enjoyed myself while watching my kids swim. We never got to use the hot tub. Housekeeping left our room deadbolted open after cleaning while we were gone the whole day, and we got nothing more than a "sorry".

  • Older travelers

    Spacious/clean rooms, oceanfront view, friendly/helpful staff, 2 room suite is a good bargain for the price

    the continental breakfast could be better, more hot food

  • Couple

    Our stay was wonderful. All of the rooms are suites. We had a king size bed, a very nice sized bathroom with great lighting, a kitchenette with pots, pans, glasses and cutlery provided. A queen size pull OT couch and all of the rooms face the ocean. My favorite part was probably the huge window that looked out into the ocean and the balcony. The view was wonderful, you are right on the ocean, we could see dolphins from the balcony! All of the provided toiletries are from Bath and Body Works. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

    I wish that they had a restaurant attached. It looks like they had one there at one time, but now they only do a very simple continental breakfast(complimentary.)

  • Family with children

    Our air conditioner was broken, and the maintenance men came to fix it in 15 minutes. Also, the maintenance women were very friendly and helpful.

    The Hotel has a bad smell; I don't know if it was the beach traffic or not. Also, it is a hit and miss experience with the elevator. Sometimes it is so busy that you can't use it. Also, there are little or no towels in the pool area, and the later night staff could be friendlier. They should take a lesson from the morning staff.

  • Family with children

    It was right on the boardwalk , a lot of activists for my teenagers to do. Shopping across the street, perfect location!!!!!

    Elevators were very slow. That's my only complaint!

  • Family with children

    The front staff was polite and always helpful.

    The room was dirty with a dirty washcloth in the bathroom at check in. Bathroom floors were dirty at check in. Hallway stunk - very bad odor for the complete stay. The room was outdated, reception area dark.

  • Family with children

    Proximité of de beach and restaurant. The view of the ocean fron my room . I can make my food in my room.
