Very basic property. Hallways dirty with lots of con webs. Gym very basic machines. Bare gym, no water in the gym. Rooms were very basic. Bathrooms were terrible. Dated and old. Shower was an old plastic shower liner from like the 80s. Not sure how clean it was so showered with flip flops. Shower head not adjustable and dropped on one side. One of the pillows had some kind of smear on it maybe from old lipstick? Pros: central location, private beach. If you love dogs it’s great because lots of people had their dogs with them. If you don’t, their beach is not for you. Overall, it’s ok but we won’t be staying again. I would rather stay somewhere more updated and cleaner. Oh and there’s a $28 resort fee. Seems ridiculous since there’s nothing extra. For $28 you should at least have water in the gym.

I like the cook weather. Did not appreciate being located directly in front of the Beach Bar when I told them I was traveling with my 90 year old mother. Not very conducive for elderly peace and quiet. Also...did not receive room refresh on 2nd day. Called front desk 3 times within 2 hours after returning from a day trip and finally got some fresh towels at least.

This hotel is in a great location. Right on the beach and close to everything. Housekeeping was very friendly. The only thing missing from the room was a microwave. I’d definitely stay here again.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Pros: Service, and snow play area.
Cons: Include a microwave would be great.
Location: Great location. Indoor Ice Skating Rink nearby. 10 minutes to Heavenly (snow traffic is why it took so long), casinos, or snowmobile.
There was a massive snow storm when we got there. The area by the beach had a huge snow playground for the kids. So this review is a bit biased because we were able to let the kids spend hours upon hours of playing in the snow while watching them from the balcony with a glass of wine. This hotel is average. The fireplace was a nice touch. It would have been better if there was a microwave, but that is really the only think that I could nit-pick on for the price. There were not enough towels when we first got there. We had four people but only two towels. I quick call to the front desk sourced an additional 6 towels for us, and they delivered it to us in 10 minutes. So service was great. The restaurant is closed at 11 am. My family moves slow, and we usually arrived at 10:55. They still served us with a smile. In fact some other families were later than us, and though they were supposed to close they stayed open for us. Carpet was a bit old and dingy. Probably not the highest grade carpet either. However it was relatively clean. Overall, I was happy with the resort.

Beach Retreat

Everything was great except front desk/housekeeping never answer their phones and when they did i was on hold for 30 minutes. Requested fresh towels and was told 2 different times they were on their way and we never received them. Pillows are like rocks. We ended up sleeping with no pillows because no pillows were better than theirs. But like i said everything else was absolutely great.
