We stayed here last year after running in our first ever Half marathon.....the Surf City marathon.... and enjoyed it so much we returned again this year. My husband and our friend took on the challenge of the full marathon while the ladies tackled the half again. We can not say enough about the great staff, Warren, Ed and Bridgette were always willing to help us with anything we requested....wine glasses, hair dryers, directions or suggestions on places to see and eat. The morning breakfasts were great and the evening cookies delicious. We upgraded to a king bed this year and it was very comfortable. The location of this hotel makes it a great choice as you can walk to the beach, resturants and pubs. We also enjoyed the feeling that we had the use of the full hotel and we were not restricted from anywhere.
