Ocean View priceless
Great Location. Very pet friendly. Comfortable room. Great view. Over priced for old , worn, dated hotel.
Janet, us1 night trip
Poor 2.0
Over priced and grimy
Beautiful location so they can charge what they want. Rooms felt grimy and were out of date. Furniture was ripped and damaged/ cheap. Blankets were rough and scratchy. Very uncomfortable hotel, especially for the price. Great for dogs. Booked two night stay with wife and we left after one night -- one night too many.

Not worth the money, run down hotel
Definitely paying for the oceanfront view. Hotel is not worth the money! The concept of this hotel is for partying/younger crowds, not very family friendly either. Its in dire need of an update. Moldy curtains, moldy caulk in shower, loose shower handle, holes through out bathroom door, rusted and corroded handles throughout room. Im glad we only stayed one night. Staff was very friendly and hospitable! Great location...nice time we will go elsewhere. Pretty disappointing.

You're Paying for the View
Beautiful location, ocean views, and food! Condition of hotel was expected considering the ocean pounding it can take. Cleaning was the worst we've seen.
Elizabeth, us3 night trip
Good 6.0
It was Fine
The hotel was fine but very overpriced. The rooms are very small and the balcony is tiny. We asked for new bath towels one night and they never brought them. When we asked the next morning they said they were in the wash so we didn’t get them for a few hours. There was construction right outside, which was loud and ruined the ocean view/experience. It is a good location right next to restaurants and the pool is slightly heated which was nice. Also, staff was very friendly! Overall, we expected more for the price.

Not sure it's worth the price
We wanted oceanfront on our vacation away from Wisconsin, so we splurged for the room for our 2 nights in NC ($275/night before fees). If it was not on the ocean, it really would not have been worth anywhere near that price. The lobby area was pretty and clean, and there was a nice restaurant and bar, but all of that, of course, cost extra to partake. The large pier on Folly Beach, just outside of our hotel, was closed for construction, which we didn't know until after booking, and the view East of our room was somewhat blocked for pictures by a crane and other equipment. The balcony of the room was wide enough for a few people to stand on; you could NOT set a chair on it. The bathroom vent (if there was one) did not work, so every time a family member showered, the entire room was humid, or the person in the bathroom just had to suffer with the door closed. No vanity/sink outside of the bathroom, which I knew, but do prefer when travelling with a family, especially when the bathroom gets so steamy. We had a flimsy door that went to a combined room, and we could hear almost every word our neighbors spoke when they returned in the evening, and they weren't being particularly loud. We enjoyed the time on the beach and in the ocean, so I guess whether or not you reserve this property would depend on what is important for your vacation. The hotel room itself is quite average. The hotel itself, a little better than average.
