“Very Nice Oceanfront Hotel”
Reviewed 7 April 2007

Hotel sits right on the beach with great views from the balcony. We stayed in 607 (end unit) that supplied a wonderful view of the entire beachfront to our left. Cleaning staff did a very good job with the rooms. The pools (both indoor and outdoor) were very nice. For the money we paid, it was a very good value. Would definitely stay here again!

We reserved our condo on Expedia and later got an email stating that we had to be 25 to stay in the condo after we had already paid. After calling the Resort, they were going to downgrade us to a hotel room facing the ocean but leave the price that we had paid for a condo the same. Upon arrival we kindly explained how we should be receiving money back if we were being downgraded and that we would really like to stay in the condo. After a short conversation they agreed to let the 4 of us (ages 19-21) stay in a condo for a $100 deposit that we would receive back at the end of the week. They even let us check in an hour earlier than usual!

The rooms were very clean and the housekeeping staff was wonderful. One day we had dirty dishes in the sink and we came back to find them all washed, they went well beyond expectations. Anything that we needed could be found at the front desk.

The weather wasn't as warm as we had expected it to be, but it was nice that they had 4 hottubs on the 6th floor to accomodate us. There was also a pool and lazy river but nobody was using it as it was terribly windy and cool.

The location was right on the beach and in an area that wasn't too busy compared to the rest of the beach. Because of our age we had hoped that there would be more young people, but they seemed to be further up the beach.

There was a restaurant called Liberty across the street that I would definatly reccomend. The nachos and wings were AMAZING and all of the items were decently priced. There was a blockbuster and some other restaurants within walking distance.

Overall we had a wonderful stay and would go back again but we might try out something more central to town.

  • Liked — The privacy and location
  • Disliked — The check in and wi-fi was very hard to get, had to purchase a cord from the front desk

the hotel was better than expected, the room was very clean and a good size. We had a oceanfront efficiency on the 6th floor and the view was excellent, the maid service was very good, u can park in ramp and walk to ur room which i liked.. Only downfall was the beds were a little stiff , but overall a great hotel with lots of pools and hottubs, and were very clean. I like the location its within 5 minutes of broadway at the beach and lots of golf courses and shoppin, restuarants, and u cant beat the price as well. The beach was very clean and within a few steps of hotel. The weather was warm in upper 70's in late march.. We will definately stay again....

We stayed 4 nights at the Grande Shores and played golf 4 days. The arrangements and the prices were excellent. There is a fine breakfast buffet which you 'have to' take in every morning. We had the foresight to ask for ocean front rooms so that we opened the windows everynight and fell asleaep to a very high surf. I don't believe I'd ever slept so close to the water before.
However, the motel is old and on two occaisions the people in the room over us flooded their shower and it cascaded down into our bathroom. It is very annoying to step into 1/2 inch of water as you enter your bathroom. This was such an inconvenience that I will seek out another place next time. For example, the "Carolina Winds" next door.

What a deal! My husband and I booked this Resort for our 26th wedding anniversay. This was a three day two night anniversary package that included wine, fruit basket (large), 2 breakfast meals and (1) evening meal. When we arrived, our room was skillfully decor. with hearts across the beds and bathroom,counters, all towels were decorated with hearts with rose petals flowing across everything, even the tub. It was truely lovely. A intimate table for two was decorated with wine glasses, wine already chilled and the largest fruit basket I had ever seen. To top this off, our breakfast the next morning was great, the buffet has everything from fresh eggs, bacon, sauage, french toast, pancakes, juice, coffe and all kinds of fruit. The Saturday night meal was very romantic, lights were low with a candle on our table. Prior to the meal, we went to the lounge alittle early just to talk and have a relaxing glass of wine before we were served. While @ the small bar, we over heard the bartender say to another couple that they were waiting for the couple who purchased the romance package. We watched as the waiter prepared our table, menu, candle unaware the couple was us. We felt very special and have never been treated with such service and kindness. The waiter was great, he actually got on his knees while taking the order to make sure he understood everything we wanted without making a mistake. The meal with the package included everything, all the way to the dessert (cheesecake, to die for). We would rate this deal the very best we have ever purchased over 26 years. You can't beat an oceanfront room with balcony, meals, service in a great location for around $200. We will return!! Happy Honeymooners from North Carolina

Third visit to this resort for Annual Golf Outing with a group ranging from 4 to 16 golfers. Condo North Ocean View rooms are always nice and clean and work out great. 3 Bedroom units are really roomy and highly recommended from this planner. Guys love the onsite lounge and resort is centrally located making nitelife a breeze. Golf rates are competitive through the resort and really makes it grand for a one stop shop. Never had any complaints from the group and look forward to next years trip already!!!!!

This was our first stay at Grande Shores Resort. We had an ocean front room on the 4th floor. It was very nice, clean and up todate decor. We like parking on the deck nearly at our door, no pushing carts up and down the elevator! We used the hot tubs on the 7th floor, they were clean and we enjoyed the view.
The inside pool was in perfect shape, the steam was heavy but besides that it was great. The staff was nice enough, maids came everyday. We had an non-smoking room and it didn't smell. I don't understand some of the bad reviews this place has gotten. I guess if you pay $150 a night maybe it could be fancier but for what we paid it was perfect. I am afraid they are adding a new addition to the building, so there will be that to deal with this summer.
