Let me start by saying, I've stayed at the Lighthouse many times in the past. It's location is what keeps me coming back. Although, not on the beach, its directly across the street and is also in walking distance to Time Square...a true "perk" if you don't want to drive during their busy season.
This hotel is your typical beach hotel. It could use a lot of updating, however, if you don't plan on spending a lot of time in your room, you won't be disappointed. The rooms and common areas are always neat and clean. You can only get wifi if you are in the pool or office area, the tvs are not flat screen, and the refrigerators don't work that well. We had to put some of our food in the freezer because they kept our food cold but didn't freeze. Again, everything is dated, so be aware...
The one complaint I have on this trip was the front desk person (Brianna). When I arrived at 11:00a.m. I was told check in was at 3:00. It wasn't a big deal we just went across the street to have a relaxing lunch. We came back around 1:30 to inquire about our room, again we were told check-in was at 3:00. We decided to sit at the pool and wait until 3:00. Promptly at 3:00, I went into the office and Brianna told me check-in was at 5:00. I told her that's not what she told me the last two times I came in the office. She shoved a sign in my face that was on their counter and told me the information was located on their website. Now mind you, we had been listening to this girl talk to her husband/boyfriend on the phone. They were having issues and she had to pickup her son and she wasn't happy. When she returned with her son, her dispostion was awful. There was another couple she had upset as well. This young lady should not be front desk help, her attitude was very disappointing. The other staff members were friendly and tried to answer any questions or concerns in a professional manner. Had I not been at the Lighthouse before, this alone would make me not want to come back in the future. As a final note, I could not find anywhere on their website that said check-in was at 5:00..
