We have stayed here for 9 years now. The kids always love it & are sad to go home. We got the larger suite this time, and it really came in handy. the kids had their own room, as well as their own tv. We had plenty of room in the front bedroom, but didn't like the light that showed...

We just returned from a three-day stay at the Sun Viking Lodge with our three year old grandson, his baby sister, and his parents. Our visit was wonderful. We picked Sun Viking after reading other reviews on Trip Advisor and after looking over the amenities. The traditional playground, water slide into the pool, location right on the beach, and indoor...

I read the reviews before staying here with our kids and I have to say, the reviews were too kind. There are some pros to the Sun Viking: The oceanfront location is excellent and the staff are very nice. Also there are lots of activities for the kids. But the bottom line is this hotel is old and so is...

Just recently spent 3 days at the Sun Viking Lodge. Check in was quick and easy. Our room was just as we reserved. It was clean and spacious. The view from our room was gorgeous. Everyone we met or came across was happy and having a great time. Will definitely return again and recommend to our friends.

This place is in need of major updates to the linens and flooring. Carpet is a terrible choice on a beach location. The room had a terrible odor. The fridge and microwave were dirty. Our room was near a family that fought and screamed at each other the whole time. It was hard to relax. There should be quiet hours...

We are sorry to read that we disappointed you during your recent stay. Generally we get many compliments regarding how clean the rooms are so we will definitely look into the microwave and refrigerator issue you mentioned. One challenge that all hotels along the beach are faced with is, because of the salt air, the outside of appliances rust very...

We stayed 2 nights last weekend at the Sun Viking Lodge while attending a girls softball tournament. We were pleasantly surprised to find a very nice family style hotel.
