My husband and I came down for the night to celebrate our aunts birthday. Family was staying down the street at another place that was booked. I called beach croft two days before our trip ( we only live 30 min north) and was able to reserve a room for the night. It is a charming, old Florida, unique motel... More

Some friends of mine came down for a week vacation. The owner would not let us even pick them up. They decided to switch hotels and the owner said he would return the money if he was able to rent the room again. The next day he did but never returned a dime. I will never recommend that place again.... More

We stayed in Room 7. I thought it was nicely decorated-- very beach-like. It had a king bed and was an efficiency so we could cook some of our meals. We loved being so close to the beach-- just walk out to the parking area, turn right and walk through the public access to the beach.

I am giving this motel "5 stars" because of the location and price. Even though this was a motel, it was like renting someone's studio apartment-- there is no daily maid service, but you can get fresh towels by placing the old towels outside your door. We stayed in Room 7. I thought it was nicely decorated-- very beach-like. It... More

This was probably the most unique place we have stayed. We loved the charm of it. Very clean inside and never saw any critters. The beach is just a few feet away and I found lots and lots of shark teeth and other fossils. We can't wait to go back. Great restaurants within walking distance.

My girlfriend and I needed to find a room last minute and called to inquire after noting the rates and location. Sharon was terse on the phone but that might just be her personality. I got into town early and had no trouble finding the place. I was surprised at its charm and abundance of character. There is a mini-rainforest... More
