Was a great stay,, next time i'll ask and make sure i have lake view.. i had a room on the side barley could see anything. wasn t to happy with my view.. spending the amount of money per day. veiw would of been nice.

Great location and the staff is very helpful. We have stayed there several times and have enjoyed it each time

Our stay was during one of the Covid restricted times, just after Thanksgiving. The hotel did a wonderful job making us feel safe. Everything was pristine and hand sanitizer was in all heavily trafficked areas. The pool and hot tub were kept very clean as well. The rooms were perfect for our 4 person family. Large roomy space with and extra sink outside of the bathroom. Even though they were unable to provide their usual buffet style breakfast, they had a “covid friendly” option with individually wrapped breakfast options, like nutrigrain bars, cereals, poptarts, etc.

Great location, friendly staff, large rooms and very clean. They hit is all.

Clean property and friendly staff. My only Covid complaint was the person vacuuming our hall, a few feet away with no mask anywhere in sight on his/her person. Not good, not good at all !

Friendly staff. Nice view. We got upgraded to a lake view without even asking! Safety precautions in place

Manager of hotel was awesome. Very accommodating when problem discovered. Would stay again.

Great location right on the beach. We stayed in a walk-out room which offered a very nice view of the bay. We did have some Check-in difficulties. Our Orbitz reservation specified beachfront balcony or walkout. The Check-in staff initially refused our preference of walkout. Apparently the Orbitz reservations do not map over correctly and our reservation showed up as balcony only. They asked us for an additional $150 for the two night stay. I did show them the Orbitz printout showing the walkout option, but it took a lengthy uncomfortable discussion before they agreed. The hotel was virtually empty the first night with lots of availability. Otherwise the stay was very pleasant. The other front desk staff that we interacted with during our stay were incredibly friendly.

Disappointed. Overpriced for the property. A couple employees were not wearing masks. The beach chairs looked like the hadn't been cleaned or moved in the three days we were there. Room was on beach level and a bit musty.

Very nice stay, excellent location and beach access.

I like the location and cleanliness of hotel but I didn’t like the beds in the room. They sunk in the middle Very uncomfortable . You must do something with the pool area. Very slippery I watched every single person slip at least once.

A really nice hotel. At check out, staff was not friendly; no thank you for your stay, etc.

don't want to waste this time this should be allowed to be blank

Always a good stay at a fair off season price. Breakfast is full of options on higher occupancy days weekends and adequate on slow days . No complaints at all

Another comfortable stay . No issues . Breakfast was nice each morning as was the available local newspaper

Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback. Our beachfront walkout rooms are only offered directly through the resort due to the limited availability but I am glad we were able to accommodate your request. We hope you stay with us again.
