We are originally from N.J. and recently moved to N.C. This is our first trip to the NC beach and we found a gem. My accessible room was perfect, immaculate, well appointed with an over abundant supply of soft towels. The friendly staff help to make this place the only resort in NC for my family. The restaurant offers delicious...

Loved the room. Not too crazy about the bed. Hard to go from a king bed to a double bed. Sheets needed to be replaced. Did Moffit the bed, kept slipping off of mattress Super TV and Internet service. Very clean. A little pricey.

We had an enjoyable stay here. I read some earlier reviews about the hard beds but they were fine for us. The only issue we had is with the very small bathrooms. If you are under 125 lbs. you should be fine. Room was clean and staff was friendly and helpful. Beautiful view from each room.

We had heard good things about this restaurant from locals who had patronized it in years past.  Unfortunately the hotel is under "new management" & the restaurant has gone downhill. The old multi-page menu with a terrific variety of seafood meal choices (a previous guest posted a photo of it elsewhere on Trip Advisor) is gone. Instead as we walked...

Love the all oceanfront rooms but the hotel is very dated....Breakfast service was great, Dinner was a nightmare. Bedding was comfortable and the staff was helpful. I would stay again if the pricing were right.
