Could/should be very nice but unfortunately it's not. Elevator situation is absolutely ridiculous. I've never been anywhere where you wait half an hour to get on an elevator. And when you do, you're forced to CRAM as many people in as possible because you just can't wait any longer. Shockingly messed up. Also, overpriced breakfast is a germ/Covid playground - zero Covid restrictions. Heck, even in a non-Covid world it was disgusting

Location is very good, the room was very clean, check in/ check out was smooth,

Quiet pool no wind this is I like much

Great location, Wonderfull staff, great room

The property is in a very convenient location to the boardwalk about a half mile walk. Also about a half mile walk to a wonderful restaurant, Wicked Tuna. Easy access to the beach. The things that were disappointing was there were no convenient water stations to wah the sand off, the property next door had one for their guests. Also, house keeping was nonexistent, so after a couple of days on the beach our room seemed to be covered in sand. Also, we arrived a couple hours after check in time and our room was not ready, no compensation was offered for the delay. After spending the day traveling by air we could not even change our clothes to go enjoy the beach and ocean.

Great location...great pool with waterslides

The property was wonderful. The restaurant and bar was great, and the food was really good. The water park was a nice touch for families and kids. It is located in walking distance to many other restaurants and shopping. One downside is that there seems to be a lot of homeless people hanging around the boardwalk area, but no one ever even approached us, so if you can get past that, you’re good. The property itself is secure and we felt very safe.

Clean and spacious room, great staff, and right on the beach! The balcony view and hearing the waves crash at night was the best part. Will definitely return and recommend!

I absolutely loved everything about this hotel. The parking is a little disappointing but the location and amenities made up for it. No complaints from me.

Hotel was very nice. The elevators were extremely slow. Wait times were long. My room was in the front corner of the hotel. Very noisy at night. Made it hard to sleep. The room was wonderful though.

Property was overall nice and seemed clean. Service was at an extreme minimum because of Covid-19 (maybe less than other places that we have stayed). Room was very spacious and comfortable with great view of ocean. Bathroom was satisfactory. Shower water pressure was terrible and water temperature was variable. Check-in was terrible because there was nowhere to park (small driveway full of cars apparently waiting for valet parking). Parking garage is large but 2 blocks away and not where you want to be walking late at night.

Staff was nice , definitely recommend this resort, loved staying there with such a beautiful view . Not too pricey but would be better if breakfast was included. very convenient that everything is close by. Thank you

Great ocean views, nice big suites. Kids loved the water park and easy access to the beach, and close to the boardwalk. Recommend.

We throughly enjoyed our stay here! The employees were nice and the room was great for what we paid. The only couple things we didn’t enjoy were the walk to the parking garage-about a block away. Understandably there is no on site parking cause there would just be no room. And our AC in our room was acting up 3 different times. They came and fixed it but the second time it seemed they didn’t believe us about it acting up. Just pointed a thermometer at it, informed us they don’t service AC’s anymore, just replace and if there’s continuing problems they’ll have to switch our room. We made it through the vaca after that though with no problems. Would recommend people to stay here. Amazing ocean views!!!

Wonderful room and view. Bed is hard.

Beautiful ocean view from our suite. Very friendly staff.
