We booked this hotel due to the few decent reviews on Trip Advisor and I have to admit, it was definitely not the best decision. It was dark inside the room, hardly any light at all. The kitchenettes were extremely dirty, disgustingly dirty. We stayed in two different rooms and the second room we were in had NO PLUG INS!... More

I get this place. If what you are looking for is a quiet clean basic accommodation located with views westward over water, outdoor seating, a jetty and an easy walk over the road to take in magnificent beaches and the Atlantic ocean to the east with circling pelicans above then this is the place for you. Absolutely loved the simplicity... More

I booked our room with mixed emotions based on other reviews. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was clean and the location was great. I admit they need to do some updating. There wasn't a outlet in the bathroom and there were no mirrors anywhere else. There weren't many dishes but the location on the river made it easy to... More

No luxuries in this basic accommodation, but that is not what it is all about. It is about being somewhere where time stands still and gives a refuge from the pace of Florida. Priced well for the market it serves.

I was enticed with being on the river and just across from the beach. But I wish I had stayed home. Every where you might want to sit stinks from overflowing ashtrays. The noise from the road takes away from any "back to nature" feeling. The dolphins in the river are great to see. But sleeping? Forget it. If it... More

We stayed for one night in this motel. The price was 100$ for a double queen size bed room (4 people) which is not expensive. You can sit on the water, while watching the sunrise with your coffee, which is really relaxing. A negative point for the loud A/C which we had to turn off during the night (but then... More

Wasn't sure what to think at first sight. The hotel is nestled in lush greenery and not easily visible although it is right off the road. The rooms have everything that you need but if you are looking for modern luxuries then this is not for you. What it does offer is a community courtyard feel with a view of... More

The lady that checked us in was nice. We paid by cash. She said she would bring our computer receipt, since her system was down. When we left my husband ask the lady in office for the receipt.
