We just came back from a vacation at the Windrift. We had an excellent time. Everything is clean. The pool was great. The staff should be commended on excellent service. There is always live entertainment every night. Great getaway for both my daughter and my husband and me. The one thing I wish they had was a small gift shop....

What a disaster. I stayed at this hotel while attending a friends wedding. I WILL NEVER GO BACK. Deplorable customer service. The front desk staff was disorganized at best. Now 2 weeks later, they contact me and are trying to charge me for a beach tag that I turned in at checkout 2 WEEKS AGO. Which they say is now...

I was very impressed with the staff at the hotel check in. I know that check in isn't till 3:00 but the staff gave me 2 beach tags at 11:00 so we could enjoy our day at the beach with friends. The room was very nice and clean. You must sit at the upstairs bar and have a drink overlooking...

This hotel so consistently excellent. Every year we go down for a few days, in early June. Always a great time and everyone is so friendly. I wouldn't don't think of going anywhere else. We can't wait to go back, next season!

Stayed at the Windrift last year and unfortunately the beach was closed. This year, we splurged on a ocean- front suite for five nites. I cannot say enough positive comments about our experience. The suite - although pricey - was beautiful. It looked exactly like the pictures on the website. The place runs like a well- oiled machine. On Wednesday...

I used to party here before the renovation and in my single days. Now that it's renovated--and I'm a bit more grown up--my fiancé decided to visit the old beach town and splurge on a stay here. It was worth every penny. First of all, the renovation is amazing; like a whole new hotel. The rooms are well-appointed with the...

Stayed at Windrift in Signature 1 BR Suite for 3 nights while in the area for a wedding. The room set up was very nice and comfortable (fold out couch, 2 bathrooms etc) BUT the room came complete with a couple big negatives. The room had 2 small balconies but they were essentially unusable because we were directly above the...

I've been coming to this hotel since 1977 and I go back every year. I love this place, this beach and these people. There have been many changes to this resort since then, but all positive. The rooms have been redone and now have a modern, updated vibe to them. The beds are extremely comfortable and the bathrooms are well...

I was just a guest 6-07-14. While using the public bathroom off of 80th St. I mistakenly dropped my key ring into the the new, very efficient, commercial pressure toilet, while reaching over to flush it. It was swept away to my devastation. It contained my father's Tiffany key ring (60 years old), 5 assorted keys & a Vovlo ignition...
