We have been going for a few years and you can see that they are starting to make it nicer in a few ways. Still the best location at the beach. Will be going back again. This was our third stay this year.

We stayed for one night 11/5/2016. The hotel is old and rundown even though the pool area appears to be recently refurbished. Our room was accessed from outside into a "back door". The AC system was running outside the back door at all hours and was really noisy. Angie immediately noticed an unpleasant odor when we entered. Room seemed clean,... More

Stayed a week over Columbus Day weekend. The new heated pool with waterfall was sparkling clean, the outdoor jetted spa tub was a treat. Order your gin and tonic from the new Barefoot Bar without leaving the pool area, and sip it on one of the plentiful lounge chairs. Take your time, because with the clear barricade, you have one...

The Marquis is a clean and comfortable hotel right across from the beach and yes, it's dog- friendly! Perfect ocean-facing porches to watch everyone go by, such a treat for all of us. Easy access to the free parking right out in front of the porch. Separate bedroom and living room. Bathroom is small but functional. Nice comfy bed and... More

We usually stay in the winter for our anniversary but we decided to visit in the fall. This is our 40th year. Pool was open and breakfast buffett was very nice, but room furniture is dated and needs a facelift. Bathroom and kitchen area were good.
