“A+ Place to Stay!!”
Reviewed 27 July 2012

My husband and I (along with some friends) stayed at the Edgewater for our vacation week in July 2012. Our friend have stayed there for a few years now and always raved about it. This year we finally decided to make the move from another motel and give this place a try. All I can say is WOW!! I cannot think of a negative thing about it.

From the customer service, to the cleanlinest of the rooms, to the overall condition of the motel everything was just perfect. I can not think of a single negative thing. Coffee and newspaper waiting in the office every morning. Smiles everyday from every single person that is working there which goes a long way!! They make you feel like you have been staying there forever with them and are returning friends!!

This will definitely not be our last visit to the Edgewater!!!

We have stayed here many times and always had an excellent experience. This trip was for our tenth anniversary and to our surprise there was a card and a bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room. We love the heated pool, easy beach access, and the fact we can walk to everything. Thanks for a great experience.

Room Tip: Rooms away from sundeck can be quieter on some evenings.

six of us professional women spent 4 days and nights at the Edgewater again this year. Our goal is to try different hotels each year for our annual trip but we are so comfortable and so happy with everything about this hotel that we keep coming back and we are never disappointed. We were greeted like long lost friends and were able to check into our room early which was wonderful since we were all tired from traveling. We always reserve rooms 1 and 2 as they face the water (limited view because of the dunes and the beach grass) and are very quiet. It is a short walk to most of the restaurants we go to and as well as a shot walk to the shops. the beach was wonderful, we had great weather and took some nice walks along the beach as well. Thursday night is firework night and we enjoyed those while sitting on the beach. Nice quiet smallish hotel with great service and clean, spacious rooms. Highly recommend

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 are by far the best in the hotel. Quiet with a view of the water and the pier

I've been going to this place for as long as I can remember. Location is great, steps away from the beach and close to everything. The property is well maintained and the staff is super friendly. I've tried lots of different rooms and the ones facing the ocean are by far the best, of course. If you're looking for a great place to enjoy the sound of the waves at night, a very long beach where you can walk for hours and plenty of attractions minutes away (walking distance from pretty much everything) then this is a place worth checking out.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, ocean front rooms are quieter and you can't beat the view.

We have stayed here several times and just love the decor (less the old TV's). Convienent location to everything. Clean and adorable.

On one trip we stayed somewhere else and actually got a room here and never returned to the other hotel.

The Edgewater has everything - the beach is steps away, the rooms are clean, clean, clean(!), the staff is super friendly and accommodating and the OOB Palace Playland is just down the street. And if you need a larger space, as we did, they also have a lovely apartment with 2 bdrms & a full eat-in kitchen available. Plus there's the heated pool! Oh, and the rooms are so nicely decorated too - really top notch. Thanks again Edgewater - you have a GREAT vacation spot!!
