The resort is naturally located to everything Itsght on beach that wa onveient There as no room service probably because of lack of stafff (COVID) So getting your own towels shampoo etc was unsatisfactory The place could use a good paint job All in all a solid 9 out of 10 I will definitely go back!

Old, dirty, smelly, run down resort. It should not be called a resort. That word does not describe this facility. Do not be fooled. It is a Motel 6 at best.

roomy place with alert staff

The Beachside bistro was fantastic! The views were impeccable! The changes they had to make due to covid (no room service) really kinda sucked. We had 3 kids and couldn't get our room vacuumed at all. We had to go get out own towels if we needed more. If you're not going to offer all of that, then you shouldn't charge the amount for when you do. I was disappointed in the service aspect of hospitality.

Right on the water

Great location, not a great hotel. Desperately needs updating. Peeling paint on the ceiling, tub, and tub surround. Dated carpet and furniture. Drapes were unhooked and hanging off. Chairs were stained and faded. Due to covid they would not clean the room, take out trash or exchange the linen for the entire stay. You could however, walk out the door to a nice sandy beach.

Only stayed 1 night, but the room was a bit sandy on arrival. Loved the view from the balcony. Staff was friendly and efficient, I’d stay again for bare essentials at the beach, but wouldn’t stay for more than a few days.

The pool was nice but you had to go outside to get to it which made it inconvenient.

The only thing that was wrong was that if you go on the balcony, make sure your door is unlocked, I got locked out of the room for a bit, so make sure it is unlocked! 😂 The room was clean, no elevator unless you get the oceanfront rooms, it is very clean, and the staff is very friendly. Beautiful view from the Bistro. We had a great time in the pool also!

Everything was good at this resort. The staff was friendly, the rooms were fine, the bar and dining was good, as well. What made this an especially nice place to stay was this hotel is right on a nice beach on the ocean.

The view was perfect. The room itself needed updated. Some power issues. No maid service.

We were greeted by Angelina who was exceptionally nice. Quick easy access to the beach. Be sure to pick up towels from the front desk before you head to their nice indoor pool. We did not stay in an oceanfront room, but the room was comfortable and pleasant, and we had a balcony.

Oceanfront room - balcony gave us a nice view. Quiet. A little dated, but no problems with that. Showers had great water pressure!

We were there off season. Staff was very nice and helpful. Check in/out was easy. 30 degree weather but pool was warm. Room was spacious for a double room. Interior room but only feet away from the beach. Lobby had fresh coffee and creamer all day. For the price we paid ($70) it was excellent!

We are sorry that you were less than satisfied with the service the hotel provided due to COVID and being short staffed. Hopefully, the work force will be back to full service before long.
