Broken down mattress
Our room was nice but not all that clean. There was high dust in the sink area and the floors were not real clean especially in the bathroom. The worst part was the mattress. The last 2 nights were very uncomfortable trying to sleep on the broken down mattress. My neck, back and shoulders hurt so bad after the last night that we left to go home at 5:30 am. The best part of room 315 was the balcony and the view.

Wonderful property
Love our suite and loved how close it was to the beach. Family fit into this property perfectly. 6 of us. Had supper out on the huge deck, which was facing the ocean. We all agreed this was the best fit for our group. Very clean and very comfortable.

Two night stay
The room (309)was as described and was clean. My issue was that when I went to check in at 3:15pm the worker took all of my information, making me think that the room was available, than she stated that they were finishing cleaning it and would call me when it was ready. She refused to tell us where our room was, knowing that my husband had the luggage cart thinking that we were going to be in the main building, which caused undo distress. When we received a call that the room was done at 4pm, as did the other couple 2 doors down, we unloaded our luggage onto a cart which had a flat tire only to find out that we were in a different building. All of this could had been avoided if we had been told at 3:15 that we were going to be in the building next door. Another couple that was checking in was put in room 311 and they also did not receive a call until 4pm that there room was ready. Once we were told our room I realized that the front desk lied since we stayed in the parking lot until 3:30pm and no hskp went into any of the rooms in that area during that time. Check in time of 4pm is later than normal. Customer service ie: early check ins needs help. The day prior at Savannah Homewood Suites check in time was 3pm and at 1:30pm they put us in our room immediately. That's customer service! Next day hskp was done w/ rooms by ours at 1:30. Day of check out(11am )housekeeper was waiting by our room at 10am. REALLY??? But no rooms are cleaned until 4pm. DO NOT EXPECT TO CK IN <4PM

Nice getaway hotel
Decent hotel for the area, and right on the beach. We booked last minute. It was pricey for what you get, but we would probably stay there again.

Very nice stay, friendly staff and easy check in. Covered parking was very convenient so our car wasnt so hot. It is at the beach but must take boardwalk to get over dunes.

Nice little place.
It was decent. Nothing over the top. Very limited continental breakfast. Small pool. Good location with direct beach access. It was peaceful.
