We really enjoyed our stay here. Very friendly staff, very clean rooms. You can tell they truly do take pride in having a very nice and clean facility. Look forward to another stay there. It's so close all attractions, pier 60 and all the little shops along the strip there. Perfect for our little weekend getaway.

First,this is a great location and nice common areas,pool,docks and views. The rooms need painting,the appliances are from the 70s and the carpet needs to be replaced. It's sticky. Staff are wonderful however. This place could be a gem but the owners would have to spend some money.

This hotel has everything you need! Nice clean rooms, beautiful views, and the most friendly staff I have encountered in my travels. It is walking distance to beaches, bars and plenty of places to eat. This my second stay and I will return again and again. Nice and convenient having a personal boat slip.

Not even sure where to begin. Stayed at the Sea Captain in the 60's and 70's, every year, meeting other families there on an annual basis. My 92 year old mom has not been to Florida in over 40 years, but as some dear elderly people remember and think of their past, she wanted to visits Florida "one more time".... More

Beautiful quaint hotel/motel. Very friendly great views. Breakfast not up to much but enough to get you going in the morning. Would highly recommend a stay here and would love to come back. Not sure I would spend two weeks but a short stay like I did for sure.
