We stayed at Sunset Beach on July 5 to take advantage of their reopening special rate. We experienced several problems that were all related to re-opening the guest rooms before being ready. The on-site managers were a bit frazzled, but still professional and resolved the problems. The room finish and furniture, that were in place, are great. Unfortunately the bathroom...

200 bucks for our room and I could have stayed at an Econolodge for half or less and it would have been equal. Disgusting dirty Beach there was a broken shot glass just at the surf that I almost stepped on . The hotel does not offer a complimentary breakfast I was shocked. Looks a lot better in pictures than...

This is a review of the "so called" Jackspot restaurant---not of the resort itself. This was our first trip to this renovated resort. We thought we were going to a full service restaurant with all the amenities similar to the Jackspot in Chincoteague, Va.---which we like very much. Not so! This is basically a "beach/tiki type bar" for those camping...

We stopped here because we had been in the past and had a great experience, the new owners did a great job with the renovations. We purchased wrist bands to use the beach/pool/bar area during our visit. Unfortunately that seemed very confusing and unclear on how to use them or get them. I would recommend future training to staff on...

My husband, son and I had an amazing weekend here! The pool was awesome and the location was incredible! Only thirty minutes from our home and we felt like we were on vacation! Restaurant was delicious and staff was very pleasant. Sunday was so much fun, we even had a buddy of ours pick us up on his boat from...

My husband, myself and our one year old came to stay the second weekend in July. The area was still recovering from heavy rainstorms the prior several days. Since it is a new campground and the grass isn't fully grown in, it was overly muddy and it will take a LOT of work from landscaping to fix the ruts. HOWEVER,...

Room was not as advertised, no place to hang clothes, bathroom small and kind of dirty, staff was too busy to fix in room problems. We also had cockroaches. Staff did not offer compensation or a room change. Management has not responded to complaints.

The campground just had their grand opening on the 4th of July weekend. It was raining really hard a few days before the opening and the day of the opening. The campsites were really muddy and some campers got stuck in the mud. The staff came around with piles of hay to put over the camp sites witch helped some....

A renovated motor inn. Kids enjoyed the pool but our bath had no knobs so we couldn't shower. No apology from staff. Will not return. Left our son's lovey in the room. Have called the hotel 3 times asking them to tell us if they found it. No one called back. That is simply poor customer service. Waitress at the...
