We dont live terribly far from the beach but Summer is a great time to get the kiddos out of the house. We book rooms 2-3 times a month for little mini getaways and enjoy trying new places out but I have to say Beach Haven is the worst place we have ever stayed at. The only positive thing I can think of about this place is the people, not the staff but the other guests!
Room-TINY! One double and one Twin bed, TV is hung in the "kitchen". Ammenities were a tiny fridge, coffee pot and a toaster. There is no sink in there nor is there any outlets on the counter so you have to use the bathroom sink (which didnt drain properly) and you have to plug the coffee pot in on the floor. The bathroom doesnt have outlets either so you have to do your hair in the "kitchen" as well. Our blinds were broken and missing one of the panels.
POOL-TINY!! Maximum occupancy 9 people. They do not check the chemical levels like they should as my children came out all chalky and have rashes.
They also leave a tip envelope in the room and even post on the wall that you should tip the housekeeper but she said she doesnt clean the rooms on the weekends? There also arent enough towels and washcloths for everyone so you have to wait and see if enough people put them outside their rooms so that she can wash them and leave them outside your door to sit there until you return.
If Beach Haven was the least expensive place to say I would just chalk it up to "you get what you pay for" but since I live here and go to the beach quite often I know that not to be true!
