Beachside Resort Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

To start, there was no "Do Not Disturb" sign available. The first day while working in the room I had 3 staff members try to come into the room. I did ask all 3 for replacement towels, I had spilled a soda and used them to clean it up. I never saw any of them again. The room I had came with a corner window, which had not been cleaned on the outside in quite some time. And every night I had to re-tape the blinds closed so as to not be awakened at sun up with light pouring into the room. Staff removed the tape just about every night. ( was working well into the morning hours, so 6am came way to fast) The toilet did flush, but...lets just say it worried me. There was an odd smell outside my room. It did not come into the room, but it was there when I opened the door. The pillows are in drastic need of replacement. Internet connection was UNSTABLE!!! (had trouble with it for 5 days) It was off and on all weekend. The only good thing about the location was the proximity to the event going on.

This is not a 5 star hotel...However, it was clean, the staff was polite, and it served its purpose for our 1 night stay. The room had a full size fridge and a blowdryer, both which were unexpected. The walls were missing paint and the corner window was dirty. Everything else was clean and the king bed was comfortable. The room wasnright for the price.

great location, dated rooms, no ice maker,great staff and across the street is a great beach

Breakfast was bad, sign said there was a bar and gril in the hotel... but there wasn't. The hotel had a snack shack that was way over priced. Building was outdated, pillows were thin and very uncomfortable. Remote didn't work for the television.

the stay was fine. Hallways and elevators and the back parking lot area was dirty as not cleaned in some time. I had to inform the desk staff to get things cleaned which should be a daily duty. A lot of the hotel need some repair and a fresh coat of paint. Daily room cleaning staff were great.

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!
