This is not a five star hotel but it is a great beach hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is fantastic. Right on the beach and within walking distance of restaurants and arcades. The hotel grounds are well kept. The pool is beautiful and the fitness center has lots of machines for workouts.. Yes the hotel is older and the rooms open to the outside but they never felt unsafe and were well maintained. I can't wait to go back and I would definitely recommend the hotel to both f... Read more

Rooms are very small and hotel in need of major upgrade. The main restaurant was awesome especially for breakfast. The lady that checked us in was very nice but the lady upon checkout was very rude. We were not told upon checking in we had to give back our pool wristbands and I threw them away. The lady upon checking out said I will be charged for them. If I am paying 289.00 for a room why would I have to pay for a 5 cent used wrist band that they did not tell me about. Needless to say she did n... Read more

We had a blast at this Ramada. We usually stay in condos but on short notice we couldn't find one available so we gave this place a shot. The pools and beach were very impressive. The place is somewhat older but made up for it with great services, landscaping and things to do. Having an Alvins Island on location was also very nice for grabbing snacks, sunblock, etc. The grilled/bbq available near the pools was fantastic.

We really loved this resort! The staff were all very friendly and willing to help or answer questions without hesitation. I really loved that they had several restaurants on site. The food was terrific and not badly priced. They also have an Alvin's souvenir shop on the grounds that made souvenir shopping convenient, fast, and affordable. Our room was nice and cleaned. The staff provided us with extra towels, coffee and a roll away bed very quickly after checking in. The only down side is that t... Read more

Friendly and honest staff. We had to arrive a day earlier than expected. The only room available for all three days was a bottom floor oceanfront. The dunes block the view of the ocean but the room is the same cost as the upper floors. Compared to the condo we had our first few days, we did like that the hotel was close enough to walk to a few local eateries and the fishing pier. The rooms need to be updated.

Well first off I'd like to give the Ramada 5 stars for all the fun things they have for the kids outdoors!! Love the splash pad area & the pool is very nice!!! With all these great amenities, I was shocked to see how dated the rooms were. Clean but very dated...inside and out. The check in area is definitely not reflective of the room you receive. But on a more positive note, the beds were super comfortable!! And walking distance to the Boardwalk where you'll find some great restaurants and shop... Read more

Very nice resort. Don't really have to leave the property because many shops and restaurants and shops are with walking distance. Only minor complaints are I thought the breakfast buffet was a little pricey and the way the people who set up the rental umbrella and chairs kind of hog up the whole they don't leave much room to set up your own stuff. Kind of felt like they were trying to force you to rent from them at 30 bucks a day..............Get up early and set your stuff u... Read more

The hotel room is outdated but clean. The amenities are amazing, we love the beach front and proximity to restaurants and the pier. However it's EXTREMELY smoking friendly. Every where you go there's people smoking and ash trays. They put ash trays outside each room, all over the pools, around picnic areas. It's like they are asking people to please smoke on top of everyone around. I'm very surprised they don't have designated smoking areas so it can be possible for all to enjoy. If I had read t...

Pics online look very descent and the pool looked amazing !! When we arrived the rooms were outdated even after they had been "updated". Couldn't even let my kids walk around the carpet barefoot.

I'm sure that the rooms with gulf view and by the pool were better, but they should all be the same.Internet connection was very bad for the whole 3 days, everywhere in the hotel and outside as well.

This is my second year to stay in this hotel, and my stay this time wasn't as pleasant as last year. My biggest complaint was the air conditioner. Our first night there we called them and they immediately came and replaced the unit, which I was happy with. The second unit they installed did much better but it still couldn't cool the room below 80 degrees. With three girls showering and drying their hair we swear the whole time.

Pool and court yard nice. Rooms need a lot of help and updating. Half of the water park next to hotel didn't work and needs refurbishing as well. Cigarette butts all over the property and they allow smoking everywhere on the grounds and at the pool. We have been here several times over the last 10 yrs and thus summer will be our last visit! They used to pick up the trash every morning on the beach and grate the sand smooth with a tractor they don't even do that anymore!

Staines on white comforter, carpet very stained from one end of the room to the other. Second day I received stained replacement towels. It is the "Red Neck Riveria" after all, location is perfect, foods great, most staff was great. $309 per night is not a good value.

Stayed in one of the cheaper rooms, so didn't expect much. The floor was disgusting, some hotel room floors just feel wet, and this one did. I left some of my dirty clothes on the floor, and they ended up smelling like feet. The pools are nice though, and of course, it's right on the beach, so you can't really beat that. And we loved that it was right next to some great restaurants.

Checked in to the resort and was a bit surprised by vintage of the room, especially the bathroom. Had an oceanfront room which was beautiful, made up for the lacking interior of the room. Upon check in, bed linens were dirty. Reported to manager on duty, who made it right by us. Beach tiki bar was great, staff was extremely nice and accommodating. Waterfall pool and jacuzzi was clean and enjoyable. Overall, an OK hotel at the PERFECT location.

Facility is old, but well kept. The cafe' was excellent. The taco salad was enough for 2. Kind of weird that you have to return the rubber band bracelets or you get charged.
