It was our first time to stay at the Intercon and the staff and property did not disappoint. We were greeted and accomodated right away. Our room was upgraded and my kid was so happy to find a birthday cake for her at our room. The Bayshore area is very functional with an easy access to the beach, pools both for adults and kids which are temperature-controlled with a relaxing jacuzzi and the stroll from the hotel through the boardwalk is breathtaking & warm. During check in and check out, the manager took time to welcome and check on us. Plus, our dinner at the Belgian Cafe and breakfast at Selections are indeed a belly happy experience. We are certain to spend every birthday and special days at this hotel. We thank everyone in helping us through our stay! Godspeed! The Donados💛 Read less
