We visited the Windrift upon recommendation from friends for dinner, drinks, and to hear live music. The cocktails were amazing, the food was even better and we had so much fun with a live, interactive band. We loved the atmosphere of the second floor dining area, too! Definitely will be returning

My husband and I stayed at the Windrift last week for a wedding he was in. The rooms were clean and nice and the hotel offered complimentary beach cruisers to take out! The food and drinks were great and the wedding was beautiful. We are planning a long weekend trip back soon!

I've gone to stone harbor before and was looking forward to this trip and staying in this hotel. Unfortunately my trip this year coincided with Huricaine Hermine...I called the hotel to cancel my stay since I had heard the entire area was evacuated. They told me they have a two week cancellation policy and if they give refunds "how would...

Spent 4 days with family including 2 small grandchildren. Interior decor dark and drab, mostly brown. Very drab on a cloudy day -- not a light, breezy, beachy look. We had adjoining rooms and A/C units in both made rooms smell moldy, so units need to be cleaned. Our rooms were on the second floor above Signature Lounge, so we...

I have come not to expect much from beachfront hotels on the northeast coast in the US during the summer months. It is their peak season so they of course are going to be priced sky high whether they are nice or not. The Windrift hotel was expensive but our room was updated with a nice bathroom and newer furnishings....

Every summer trip to the Avalon/Stone Harbor area we make sure that we visit the Windrift resort. We always enjoy eating on the 3rd floor which has great views of the ocean and the pool area. Acceptable for families and adults. My wife, daughter, and I loved the nachos, burgers, and tacos. The margaritas were tasty and the service was...
