Small motel without much curb appeal. To be honest, if I hadn't already paid for it, I would have looked elsewhere. But I'm glad I stayed. The owners are friendly and my room was very clean. A little noisy from the street traffic but nothing objectionable. Couldn't get any closer to the beach (right across the street). Will stay again... More

We spent last week in a cottage at The Whale Watch Motel and couldn't be happier! The bed and its linens along with the towels were first class. The unit was very clean and comfortable and the service provided by the owners was terrific. My somewhat boisterous grandchildren were welcomed wholeheartedly. It was the most laid back restful vacation I... More

My best friend and I arrived at the Whale Watch Motel and right from the moment we checked in the magic began. This was a reunion mini vacation for us and my dog.The owners greeted us with warmth,even Val's tail could not stop wagging! We stayed in a cottage and felt like we were "home". Everything we could possibly need... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights with our dog. At first, we drove by since it doesn't have much "curb appeal", but I sure am glad we turned and went back! What a gem! Directly across the street from the beach, this place may be simple....but the beds were comfy and it was clean. The owners were... More

Have stayed here twice & loved it....nothing fancy but clean, owners are very nice people as well. Everything you need is there. Very relaxing stay with family, away from all the hustle and traffic of other large intown beach motels. Beach is awesome here, not alot of people, beautiful sunrises!

My husband and I have been here several times, they are dog friendly and not fancy, but very clean and accommodating. Barry and Patricia will go out of their way to help you out with anything you need. We always borrow their "used" beach equipment and towels so we don't have to drag all of that with us on our...

We stayed here the first week in August, it was our first time and we rented a cottage next to the pool. We loved it there and actually cannot wait till we can afford to go back. It is a tiny place and the owners Barry and Patricia are so sweet. We wondered if we could get a dvd player... More

Great for a couple like us who just wanted to sit on the beach for the bulk of the long holiday weekend. This would be a good place for a budget minded family too because of the kitchen facilities. The only thing that would have made the kitchen better would be a dishwasher. Good place to take your kids to... More

Older Florida, seashore rust, Clean room, quiet south end of town......count me in. I have stayed here several times and hope to many more. Flagler County is great! My dog thinks so too. Please hold onto what this town is (and isn't) as long as possible. Thank you guys for cleaning the rooms and linens with 'friendly' cleaners that leave... More

This was our 9th year at Whale Watch Motel. It's like a magnet that just keeps drawing you back. It is old Florida...no theme parks or high end hotels but if you got to Flagler Beach then you drove there and if you want the theme parks you can drive to them. The motel is kept very clean and Barry... More
