Newly renovated and improved overall look. Signs all over the Palmetto Building indicating "vending" are not updated. No major problems but we were kept awake both nights with plumbing/loud pipes. The restaurant has a very limited and simple menu but the food was good. The bar area is very nice.

The pier has always been a favorite of mine to visit. I can remember my grandfather taking me fishing here as a small child and many years after. The pier is a nice place to hang out walk out on the ocean or fish if that is your thing.

You can catch a wide range of fish off the pier with your own gear or you can rent any gear you need right at the peir's shop. Including tackle and bait.

After many years of visiting this pier, we were deeply saddened that it was destroyed by Hurricane Matthew. We hope Double Tree will rebuild it! My family spent many hours there over the years.

Hurricane Matthew destroyed most of the pier. The remaining section of the pier and the adjacent motel (that owns it) were closed for repairs in mid-November. The pier needs to be completely rebuilt. The adjacent beach is open, free of debris, and makes for a pleasant stroll..
