Stayed here for five days in July. I wouldn't call this place a resort...more comparable to camping or staying at a cottage on the water. The location is second to none...close to beach and downtown...you can walk everywhere. Pool area was modern and very nice. The service is good but the room we stayed in was dated. We had two...

VERY warn dirty rugs. No microwave. We paid more than we have EVER paid anywhere for very small place. If your only interest is to be near the beach it is a good choice. They gave Night security. And no problems with noise. We were 2/3 of the way in.

This is a decent beach motel. Older but clean. Front desk folks were great. Direct beach access is great. Bill shows a charge of $1.00 for wifi access. Why not just add that to the room rate? It kinda ticked me off because the wifi access sucked or was non-existent the entire time we were there. That's got to be...

Property includes pool which was well maintained and a grill area with several gas grills which was a terrific plus. Rooms were clean and decent size, ours had a...

Had a great 4th of July weekend with several family members and friends. Hotel was nice and clean, location was great, room was bigger than expected and could really have been used for 2 couples. Pool was very nice, lots of chairs. Staff were really helpful, security was amazing. Nice cookout area with picnic tables. All rooms have small kitchenettes...

We LOVED Waves! Went away with another couple for a July 4th weekend getaway and had the best experience. Our room was plenty spacious, very clean, and included a balcony we weren't even expecting! What a great surprise! The pool and hot tub are on the beach and so nice. We ended up spending the large majority of our time...

We just recently got back from our annual trip to Old Orchard. I must say this year blew me out of the water! Waves is worth every cent! At first when making our reservations I was hestiant due to the cost (we are a family on a budget) but I said I am going to "splurge" since I have stayed...
