great couple getaway

We last minute booked a room for Valentine's day and getting checked into the room was fast and smooth. The wind was really bad so being on the top floor we had a little motion sickness but that's not the hotels fault. Breakfast buffet was simple but the food was good. Overall I would stay there again.

Week long trip

My family and I stayed at this hotel for one week, I was pleased with staff and their helpfulness. There is a no smoking policy but we understood e-cigs (vapor) were allowed until a call to our room alerted us otherwise. This was an issue with staff until I had to physically prove I was puffing on a fake cig and not a real one.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

This hotel is right near the pier and a relatively short walk to and from dinner/ shopping.

Weekend get away

This was a wonderful experience! The hotel staff were very nice and when we walked in our room it smelt like cleaning products (which I loved)! The best part was probably the buffet breakfast that was included with our stay. It was so yummy! Oh! And of course the view and proximity to the beach! The pillows were super soft. It was the best sleep I had got in forever! The only improvement that needs to be made is to the hot tub because well it's colded than the pool. Other than that I have absolutely nothing negative to say! We will DEFINITELY be returning to this hotel and are considering making a trip to this hotel an annual thing.

girls getaway

great location, we had a three room/2bathroom suite which was awesome with two stories! three TV's, and two keurigs. staff was super friendly although they only waned to give us two keys and we had four guests. k-cup coffees didn't get replaced on day 2, and we had to call down for linens and blankets for the sofa sleepers. a hot tub would've been nice to go with the pool. we'd stay again.

Great trip!

We had a lovely stay. The staff was incredible - greeting us anytime we'd pass in the hallway and they were absolute lifesavers the evening we found out the restaurant in the hotel wasn't open on Sunday evenings during the off-season (the restaurant is not run by the hotel, it's contracted out). When our delivery dinner didn't bring any plastic ware, they came to the rescue again. We'll definitely be back!

perfect stay

Patrick at front desk was awesome. The room, location, and ammenities were perfect! We had a room on the top floor with an ocean view. Everything was conveniently located. Parking available. Clean rooms. Continental breakfast wasn't great but what else could you expect. Overall it was a great experience.
