I rented this room as part of a fishing trip with my son. The owners allowed us to come in late, and all the paperwork was waiting on the night-stand when we arrived. The beds were comfortable, and the ceiling fan kept us plenty cool, we did not need the A/C. The room was well decorated, and included a coffee... More

I gave this motel an "excellent" rating because you do have to judge it in context of similar priced ocean side accommodations. However, for cleanliness, it could stand up to a 5 star property. That room was SPOTLESS. At this price you are not expecting a "resort" type accommodation. We were visiting family who had a place rented up the... More

Let me first say that these guest were the NASTY most DISGUSTING peoople that I have ever in my years as owner of this motel have had. They had totally disrespect for my room and this property. I wanted to ask them to leave the first day that I went in the room to try to clean. It just made... More

We found The Sand Dollar Motel with this site, and I cannot be happier about it! Check in was quick and easy, the rules for staying are simple, management was extremely courteous and understanding, and the motel is a five minute (or less) walk to the beach. Check out was faster than check in, and Sam gave us two sand... More

The manager was terribly rude to me and humiliated me in front of my out of town family guests. I was trying to work with him on the bill, as there were two children that needed to be accounted for, so he tried to sell me another efficiency apartment for $340 MORE after paying him already for a week ($600)....

Nice family-owned motel convenient to everything in Atlantic Beach. Room was spic 'n span clean and the beds were comfortable. It's a short walk down the street to the ocean and the beach has a little park area for the kids with swings/slide/gazebo. This motel does not offer daily maid service and you need to bring your own shampoo, coffee,... More
