The staff was very nice. The ac never cut off and was very loud. Could use some more comfortable chairs in the room.

The staff was amazing! I will definitely return and plan to make this my go to hotel!

Really enjoyed our stay and the continued improvements are great additions!

We loved our stay at the Swell! Laura is an amazing Host. I loved hearing about the purchase and then renovations to re open this gem. There was Live music Saturday night open to guests and locals. It really provided all we needed. Thank you!!

Love the feeling of a step back in time to vacations with my family way back when. Clean, vintage, fun and really nice thoughtful touches. 🙂

Great family setup with a lot of activity's available. Super nice owners that want to make sure you have a pleasant stay.

Very nice room on the inside & the staff was great

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review and for staying with us. I'm not sure which room you were in so I cannot have maintenance look at the AC but we have future plans to upgrade to heat/air units.

We know you are upset but you booked for 2 adults and children under 12. You arrived, checked in, signed your registration card and told me that you, your husband and 3 children were going to stay in the room. You drove up to your room and we immediately got a call from a concerned guest so my manager went to the building and overheard you discussing where everyone was going to sleep. We told you that you could stay but the others could not as we could not allow 10 people in one room. We are sorry that you decided to leave.
