Hands down the location of this hotel is amazing and that is why they charge the fees they do. The hotel itself could you a major renovations. Carpets felt a bit dirty, chapstick left behind a previous guest, dirty couch which I banned my children from sitting on. We were in room 600 (the tower room) - amazing view of the beach, but crappy room. The 4 post bed was a danger to my kids who love jumping around, the couch was tattered and the carpet had us wearing shoes everywhere. It would have been smart to close off those top 2 tower rooms to make a family suite since you have to walk up an extra steep staircase from the 4th floor. Each room has a fridge.
The hotel has a freezing rectangular cold pool - totally blah, average restaurant and friendly service. Parking is very easy and just cross the street to the beach!! One thing the hotel SHOULD offer are beach chairs and umbrellas. When I am paying that much a night, I was hoping not to rent them.
Our 2 boys ( ages 3 + 6) loved the beach - clean, just big enough and waves were a blast! Spring Lake is an extremely wealthy area so huge houses, nice cars and nice crowd at the beach which is heavily guarded by the neighborhood beach patrol. You can buy a beach base or the hotel gives you one when you stay.
We would come back to this place, but would request rooms on the 3rd floor and renovated.
