3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great place to stay! We had the junior suite and it was just enough room for my family and I. I highly recommended staying at South Bay my daughter really enjoyed the pool area and water slides.We will be back!

Great location and in wonderful shape. Room was beautiful too.

Loved the water park! Also Tara at the bar restaurant/bar was nice!

Elevators jammed into one small area, unloading loading, a bit ridiculous on the little lobby space allocated. Couldn’t get to beach without going out front onto street and around side of building. Valet told us to go to garage to park, but didn’t say you need to check in to get access key first. Not well trained. Breakfast staff was a bit unfriendly

The kid area and pool area were great. Beautiful views.

Excellent facility will definitely go back! Great price great views and lots of activities!

Close to the beach. Pool area needs upkeep and drop off area is too congested. Need more staffs by drop-off to direct traffic.

In general, South Bay Inn and Suites is a fantastic property. The valet parking, however, is not. The drop off/pick up space is not big enough, and there were several times when I had to wait in traffic or go to self parking.

Great location. Rooms clean. Staff friendly and courteous. Would definitely highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

I booked when it was an outdoor pool and now it's an indoor pool. I don't do indoor pools. the lazy river has 0 sun exposure. if you book though a 3rd party like orbitz you have to pay 11.09 for breakfast. had to call for toilet paper as it never got refilled during my 5 night stay. clean and modern

This resort is right in the middle of the boardwalk. The rooms and hotel is clean. All of the staff was very friendly. We arrived on Monday @3:00. Check-in was smooth and our room was ready so we didn’t have to wait until 4:00. We could tell take sometimes check in can be hectic. Just remember,you’re on vacation, there’s no need to be in a rush. It seemed to be a family friendly water park resort.

Has indoor water park for the kids and a pool bar for the parents!

The staff was very helpful, rooms were clean and well maintained. The only downside was the limited parking at check in. Two cars can block the entire drive way. Choose your check in/out time carefully as you can get trapped by other customers loading or unloading their cars. The lobby is on the 3rd floor; the first 2 floors are taken up by the indoor water park. The actual parking garage is a block over from the hotel.
