We’ve been going to at the Engleside for over 20 years. Once in the 'off season' so we can bring our dogs. They are very pet friendly in the off season and the dogs love the beach. I've always felt welcomed by the staff and they always treat us like family. We return in the summer, just the two of us. It's always a very busy area with tons of things to do. I suggest that you check out the rooms as they differ greatly. Some are simply motel type rooms, others have balconies, some have kitchenettes and some have a great view of the ocean. Like anything else, you get what you pay for. Of course things are more expensive 'in season'. We have always loved having a kitchenette and breakfast on the balcony. It's just a short walk to the Surflight Theater or the supermarket. Always clean, always friendly. And I just booked us for another weekend!
