The staff here is wonderful. We came during lull between Spring Break season and the hotel was only about 1/3 full. We were able to get an upgraded room without asking. The room was very clean, which is an accomplishment for a hotel on the beach. With all of the Covid-19 restrictions, the hotel seemed to go the extra mile to ensure guest safety, including having Lysol wipes at the front desk and hand sanitizing stations throughout the hotel.

The gulf view was spectacular from Room 250!

The hallways were a little unkempt, but no unexpectedly so since this is a beach hotel in between spring break weekends. Other than that, it was a great stay.

Room tip: Get a room on the second floor if you want a view of the Gulf. A room on the first floor will only have a view of the sand dunes.

So disappointed in this hotel. Extremely dirty, wreaked of marijuana, staff argued in front of us. We were absolutely disgusted. After traveling to get there they also were two HOURS late checking us in! There was itinerary stains on the toilet, hairs on and around toilet, and the floor. It should be unacceptable to smoke pot like that in a hotel, the entire hotel wreaked of marijuana. At least go outside and do it! Not only that but these people opened their door while we were walking by and a cloud of smoke and a CHILD came out of the room!! I just can’t believe a Hilton/Hampton hotel would be allowed to be run this way

Long hallways and dated carpet will dredge up memories of those spooky twins in The Shining, but don’t let that stop you- this is the best value on the beach -where other hotels charge $300+/night, this one serves up free breakfast. Room was warm and detailed, beds comfy. The balcony had a view of the hotel next door, so it was used as a natural air dryer for wet suits.

Thank you Liz for for your review! Our hallway is very long indeed, glad you found the humor and people mention the Shining often.

This hotel was very clean. The structure shows some wear in places, but the staff works very hard to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. The breakfast is a Covid Breakfast in that everything is sealed and either you heat it or it does not need to be heated. The selection was adequate and presented with attention to cleanliness and safety. Only a very small number of rooms actually have a view of the ocean, because of the sand dunes and location, but the hotel is on the beach with easy access.

Great place! Staff were wonderful. Room very clean. Gulf view with balcony was beautiful Close to beach and their pool was very nice. Only two stories - I loved that it was smaller and not a hotel with many floors. Very cozy & quaint. I felt I was at my own private condo. Very quiet in the room and on the beach.

Continental breakfast was excellent. Better than many. Bagels, Otis Spunkmeyer Muffins, fresh fruit, JIF peanut butter to spread on bagels, nice cereal variety. Very good.

Can't wait to go back!

Room tip: Gulf view is beautiful.
