8.0 Great
Pros:The amazing view and comfy king size bed!
Cons:Better communication between staff. Went down to the pool and had a bunch of people from the balconies yelling at me to get out because a kid had pooped in it earlier. There wasn’t anything saying the pool was closed. I called the front desk and the woman didn’t say a thing. Pretty embarrassing to get in the pool and get right out.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Great ocean view!
Cons:Nothing. Perfect experience!
9.4 Excellent
Pros:What breakfast? And bed was good
Cons:The price is way to high. But I guess
5.4 Passable
Pros:The room was good size, nice design, beautiful view and nice pool
Cons:Hair in the bathroom, very dated, hallway carpet smells, iron baby crib. Could have spent the money in a better place elsewhere, I was expecting something better for this price.
8.2 Great
Pros:The customer service is superior, the location is ideal. The room looked nice just a couple minor areas things needed to be addressed. TV did not work and the cleaning crew needed to revisit our room. They addressed my concerns immediately!!
9.4 Excellent
Pros:The staff was really helpful and kind. The view is gorgeous and it's close to everything. The room was clean and upgraded.
Cons:There was still some renovations going on an it was very confusing when trying to find our way around the facility.
6.5 Okay
Pros:I like the location and the service.
Cons:This hotel at $600/night is wildly overpriced. It should be $250-300 at most. I didn't even get free parking (had to pay $25/day) even though I was completely ripped off. Unfortunately I had no other viable options.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:great view, awesome pool and restaurant, perfect location
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Great hotel for the entire family! Walking distance to the wharf and boardwalk. The views of the ocean from each hotel room are fantastic. We will do it again!
5.7 Passable
Pros:Loved the location. The rooms were small but nice and clean. The restaurant is really nice with great views.
Cons:The pools and hot-tub are filthy and 90% kids under 5. The hotel carpets common bathrooms and stuff are just Dirty. Staff RARELY pick up the phone when you need something. They automatically charge you a $25/night Parking fee whether you park there or not.

  • The hotel boasts a total of three event spaces, all on one level, which are the perfect fit for a wide range of events. Regardless of whether you want to celebrate your wedding, hold a business meeting, or party off at your birthday – here you will find the space. The Surf View room offers splendid views of the ocean and has direct access to the pool deck. With its 1623 sq ft it’s the perfect place for bigger events and social gatherings.
