I chose this place for its location and the fact that it accepts dogs. Beach was easy-access from *all* of the rooms (most do not face the ocean). The room I had was... efficient. Most of the things I prefer in a hotel room were there, and well organized to maximize space usage. Which freed up space next to the...

Not only did the staff argue with Trip Advisor at 11:45 pm when I arrived, especially when the Trip Advisor clerk told the fellow, Josh, they show a charge of one night's advance booking. He also proceeded to make a big deal of saying that the General Manager would contact me while the one's night charges were pending. Nobody contacted...

Checked in room 325 on12/15/16..........asked to see a waterfront room in the 4 story Four Seasons building. Really impressive to us.......room smelled clean, looked clean, bath was void of mold and the bed mattresses were comfy and appeared to be new. Checked for bedbugs....none found. Back at the check-in desk, Michele (?) was extremely nice and actually seemed to appreciate...

We stayed here for one night in August. The hotel is not fancy but it is on the beach. It was better than what I expected based upon previous reviews. If you are looking for beach motel for a family at a reasonable rate than you will be okay - if you are looking for a resort then you will...

This hotel was pretty much empty when we checked in. However, we were provided a handycap room for some reason. All the furniture as literally lower than the bed. The lighting was iffy, one of the light switches popped and sparked when we turned it on. We actually tried to stay out of the room for much of the day...

Pet friendly....we paid for a room, they upgraded us without telling us why, didn't give us the opportunity to take the room we reserved, so extra money involved. Upgrade moved us from the parking lot to beachfront. So... Had to hook up the TV on our own, missing light bulb, room phone doesn't work. Breakfast...not really...comfortable beds though. Ok visit,...

Before we booked this hotel we had read some not so flattering reviews of the hotel, but we booked anyway. Well, we had a great visit, the rooms were clean and did allow pets. Breakfast was free every morning and although not alot did have the simple things like coffee, bagels, muffins, fruit and cereal. The bathrooms were very well...

The location is perfect! You could not be any closer to the beach in this wonderful, classic, beach motel. It was the ideal place to stay with our pet and the staff was super friendly. We had a fantastic time on the beach with our dog and it was great being able to meet other pet families as well. The...
