The Lighthouse Resort Inn & Suites

Recent guest reviews

Hotel is in a perfect location. Close to the beach and all of the touristy shops and restaurants. We celebrated my daughters 13th birthday, and the girls loved the pool area. There are 2 pools...one next to the bar, which seems a little sketchy for kids, & another with a waterfall. The waterfall pool still gets some characters, but not as many. It’s hard to keep rooms pristine when you’re dealing with sand from the beach etc, so you have to keep that in mind with the floors. Otherwise, the place just needs an update or 2, which seem to be underway based on the storage in the parking lot. Oh and parking is a mess! Lots of locals parking to go to the beach and taking up what little parking is available for guests. We’ve stayed here before, and will stay here again!

I couldn’t get the shower to work. Noise and loud music from pool area carried into room. Parking was very limited.

Celebrated Wife's 50th. Great Music, drinks and staff very accommodating. Decided to stay extra night. Moved to room with better view.

When I reserved the room I didn't know that the place was party central... for us older folks. Monday night rocks with a 2 for 1 happy hour and a DJ. Big fun here!

This hotel is very dated and feels old. There is a tiki bar that is very loud through the evening, the showers had very low water pressure and yet somehow managed to soak the bathroom.

Great location- walking distance to restaurants beach shopping

The hotel was absolutely disgusting! Everything in the room, the entire flea ridden hotel, was a dirty mess. Extremely unhappy! I think I got sick just from staying in this hotel. Horrible, never again.

Last minute booking. Had a great time. Room was spaces enough for the 3 of us and clean.Room. Great pool and bar area. If you like quiet maybe not the best place.

Stayed yrs ago and liked the area. close to everything at the beach. It is totally redone and nicer now than it was in the 1990s. The bed was too firm for my liking. and I do like a dark room which this was not. Food was good at the Tiki bar & grill. Like the SOB bar also! Walking distance. Everything is walking distance, park under shade and just walk wherever you want to right there!

I go to florida to get some s7n, was a little disappointed when I seen mostly shade around both pools

Our room s under a bridge we have a dumpster next to our window… It's sucked

Friendly staff,comfortable rooms and location close to beach and shopping area.

2 nice pools and a tiki hut for drinks, food, music and tvs. Across from the beach and right in times square area. Perfect love action and good rates. Must try!

Staff was very attentive to our needs. Very clean and comfortable room.

After booking this thru Orbitz and requesting a one bedroom suite in the new section, we were set up instead with the family suite in the old section because they were 'sold out'. It was a large space, up a double flight of stairs, old run down, but clean. 4 out of 5 sockets did not work and the phone did not work. There were bulbs out and/or missing in the bathroom. It was late so we stayed and I slept in a bunk bed. The next day I called Orbitz and asked if we could move. Your folks made all the calls and made that happen and we should be getting a refund for the days we didn't stay. I called and set up another property I'd visited before - The Outrigger - they had a room and it was ready and we got it immediately. I must say that the agents at Orbitz - both of them - were terrific. They stayed on the phone with me until everything was set... They were patient and focused, cooperative and wonderful. You have a customer for life here.....Many thanks

There are several steps up to the office to drag your suitcase, and then about a block to my room to carry everything. The room was furnished terribly, tile floors, everything.was worn. But the location is convenient to shops, restaurants, and the beach.

Very fun place to stay and right by the beach. Walked to everything. Restaurant is great and very good prices. Food is very good.

We have stayed many times over the years. Great location and a bar and restaurant right on property.

Bathroom fan, air conditioner, etc was broken and they wouldn't give me a different room or discount.

We stayed in junior suit, 3 adults and 2 kids! It was great, huge room, huge bathroom. Quiet! We put kids to sleep at 8pm with no problem. Super funny please - tiki bar! Parking is ok. Super close to the beach and walking area! Good price.
