Beachside Resort Hotel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

This hotel doesn't look the best on the outside but serves it's purpose well. The hotel workers were all very nice and helpful and for the price it wad just what we needed a room right across from the beach access. The beds were super comfortable and we slept great. I would stay here again.

Very disappointing after reading reviews I thought it would be a nice place to stay. I will never stay there again!!! There were stains on the sheets got replacements and there was hair in those finally went to the store and bought our own sheets. the elevator is outside the building and has no air and smells. the rooms are very small you can tell they have tried to update them but they have a long way to go. Bathroom was very small you can barely close the door to it. The breakfast is muffins, bagels, and cereal but not sure if you would even want to eat from there. The beds squeak every time you move on them and they are hard. The lobby had a weird smell and stains on the furniture. Not impressed and want go back!!

I don't usually complain about too much. I'm a very simple easy going person same with my husband it takes a lot for us to complain, but where to start from the 2nd time I call to check my reservations a week before we left and they said I don't have one to the 1st time I call to make sure of the dates when I booked because I DID MAKE A MISTAKE because It does happen they confirmed that it was fixed. The employees dress like they just rolled out of bed and have nice shirts and wear jogging pants to wear and on the phones . My personal favorite everybody expects to have clean sheets every day and the room cleaned our room didn't get clean for two days and then informed us on the 2nd day that we need to Evacuate the room soon as possible because the next family needs to have that room. wifi doesn't work at all. I asked them about if they said it wasn't there fault and there's nothing they can do about it .

Close to the beach. Rooms were clean. Beds were comfortable. Pool was nice. Breakfast was not so great.

We arrived very late. The staff greeted us with a smile and was friendly and helpful during our stay. The continental breakfast was good.

Wonderful hotel for the price. Close to downtown which makes anywhere a close walk. Plus it's across the street from the beach.

Nice hotel. Across from the beach. Near all of the attractions. Went on spring break. Someone tried to break into our hotel room. Thankfully the deadbolt kept him out, along with security. I believe it was a drunk spring breaker with the wrong room number. Good little continental breakfast.

Beds very uncomfortable. Breakfast fair but too many guests to even have room to sit down.

We enjoyed our stay. The only negative thing I could say is that we did kill 3 roaches during our stay.
