Our family stayed in a third floor oceanfront room with two queen beds, plus a roll-away bed. The room was large, and had a wonderful glass-enclosed balcony overlooking the ocean and Avalon Pier. Everything in the room appeared new and clean. The room smelled fresher than my own home. The beds were very comfortable. The room came with an iron and board, hair dryer, fridge, microwave, wet bar and lots of cabinet and countertop space. The enclosed pool was very clean, just like in the website photos. I would definitely recommend it for families with children or elderly, because the beach is extremely easy to access and has a lifeguard. The surf-fishing was also great there, as the breakers were close to shore. The location is close to lots of restaurants & shops.
The only drawback (to some) is that the hotel is very close to the water, so the beach is not very wide there.
As to the negative reviews, the Sea Ranch with 2 pools and lots of stairs to climb is not this hotel -- that refers to the one in Carolina Beach, I think.
