    The staff were very friendly and helpful. My family got stranded due to car trouble, and they managed to find us a room quickly with a 10% discount. The free breakfast was very nice. Right next to the beach. Excellent location. Very close to Jockey's Ridge and the Wright Brothers Memorial. Would definitely stay here again.

    Poor service, poor facilities

    Upon arrival the outdated look isn't bad, but then the young brunette chick with an accent gives you attitude, dirty looks and tells you she "isn't sure" when your room will be ready after it is PAST check-in....so already off to a bad start! Then they fail to call you when your room finally is ready—when they tell you to your face they will call you the moment your room is cleaned—and you're put in the WRONG room: a smoking, pet-friendly room; neither of which was mentioned on the website or requested and they wanted to try to charge EXTRA for those "special rooms"..... Allergy attack immediately upon entering the pet friendly/smoking room we hadn't reserved and major attitude to get the room we had reserved. More dirty looks from young brunette girl with accent. Also asked if I could find a restroom or changing room to change into a swimsuit so we could hang on the beach until our room was ready and young brunette with accent said "not possible" but I could "go to bar across street"....so towel change in parking lot then come to see a changing room and shower room.

    Almost everything besides the location

    Dirty, falling apart, however good location.

    Location. It's an oceanfront hotel. However not all the rooms are overlooking the beach. Has BBQ/picnic area. Outdoor pool.

    We booked a room with a queen bed & we were given a full size bed in a handicap accessible room. The bed itself was complete mush, we didn't sleep very well & our backs were killing us. The staff was rude & mostly barely English speaking foreigners. (What's the point of that!) The room was horribly dirty, we saw a roach & they wouldn't move us to another room. I could look past every other issue except roachs!!! The property overall is very un-kept and it's falling apart & the few coats of paint for appearances just aren't working anymore. Costumer service is very lacking. The full-time employees, aside from those who are there on some summer foregin exchange work visa program (who are useless) look miserable. Not a single smile on anyone's face. It's sad. Thankfully, the property is on the beach! If you choose to stay here you must upgrade/request a room directly on the beach. I was able to peek into one of those rooms during cleaning hours & wow those rooms are in much better condition! However, I only peeked in for a sec., beware of the awful beds & room dwelling roaches.
