Beachside Resort Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good location. Across the street from the beach. Walking distance to The Hangout.

....it was walking distance. My room was a non smoking room and smelled like someone just smoke weed in it. The ceiling looked horrible... it had black mold...i really wish I would have taken pics...but I left so fast....

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Although they have signs posted in the lobby (and everywhere else) about NOT SMOKING and the fines they would charge, our room reeked of heavy smoke. The guests next door openly smoked in their room (with the door open). Our room also had a damp, mildew smell which made the linens feel damp as well. Luckily we stayed out of the room 90% of the time, just returning to sleep at night.

Arrived late check in was quick. Had good breakfast.

Horrible hotel with a rude staff.. never again. Literally worst hotel experience. Can't explain how awful the front desk person was. Booked another hotel in light. Such a waste of money

It is actually across from the beach which I was a little confused about. But if you get upstairs rooms front side you can see the ocean. Man at front desk was very friendly. The room was a very nice size with a huge bathroom an a good size tub the water never ran cold which was great. I would def recommend just for the bed alone the bed was amazing I told my hubby we should see if they would sell it to us. Lol. I look forward to staying again soon

Was a great location ! Hotel was nothing special but was a good place . And my kids loved that it has its own ice cream place ! Good place for the money . Woukd stay again .

Looked nasty, smelled nasty and there was food in the sink. We were horrified to even sit anywhere. Left in 5 minutes after check in. Staff was very rude.

Needs to be updated. I liked that we had 3 beds in our room but I feel that the room was too small for all 3 beds. There was not a channel guide in the room or any local info as far as restaurants

The hotel was great. The staff was nice and helpful when needed. The continental breakfast was excellent and the location was awesome. All in all I'd book this hotel again

Beachside Resort appeared run down in appearance with apparent lack of maintenance. The door to our room had to be forced open and slammed shut. The ceiling had apparent water damage that needed repair. The refrigerator had frost in the freezer section. The grout in the bathroom was dirty or stained. There was a limit on the hot water temperature, barely warm.

The room had a very musky smell. Ceiling above shower is peeling off with black spots. Great location

Mattress had to be as old as hotel. We went to breakfast the first day and never returned for future b'fast. It was a great location to beach to town.we just accommodation could have been one step up.

I loved staying here with my two young girls. The beach access was directly across the street and very easy to get to. The hotel was very well lit so we felt safe walking at night. The internet was ok, but it did take a while for things to load. The continental breakfast was limited, but the girls loved it. Overall, it was a great experience.

Great location, Affordable and accommodating to large family groups, the breakfast bar was kept clean and full of food with a great selection. Would have liked the rooms to have been cleaned a little better! Sandy floors = sandy sheets. But in all we had a great trip!

Nice hotel Great price thru Orbitz. Short walk to beach! Nice view. Free Breakfast (Cereal, Oatmeal, Grits, toast, Muffins, Waffles, Danishes, variety of Juice, milk, Coffee, Hot Chocolate, Fruit) 6:30-9:30AM Best of All they have someone that stays right there and keeps everything replenished! If you go at 9:29AM you will have same variety as if it was 6:30AM and the lady tending to breakfast was always friendly and smiling! We had 9 kids and 4 families in our group and yes Breakfast was important! The rooms were clean!

When we got there our room had a view of the concrete pool wall, but when I ask they were real nice about it and gave me the room 2 doors down which had an ocean view. It was very nice of them and I will tell all my friends how nice they were about making my birthday trip a wonderful experience.

The view of the water is beautiful. The room was clean, but the causeways/ walkways are dingy. The elevator is really hot and needs a scrubbing. The area is safe and close to many attractions and restaurants. Breakfast is ok, bagels and danish. But above all, i prefer my hotel rooms without roaches. We saw one the last night and that totally turned us off of this hotel.

Close to beach access. Close to town. Clean. Continental breakfast was nice.

Wasn't bad. Was thinking it would be a little nicer but it was decent. The breakfast was good they just need more space, everyone was on top of each other trying to make their breakfast. The location was good.

We apologize you did not have a channel guide or local information in the room, as there should be one in every room. We do have copies at the front desk to pick up though! Thank you for the review and we hope to see you again in he future.
