I loved the location of this place. Perfect for a naturalized quiet beach experience. No extra amenities. However evrerything you need. Great service and very pleasant. Older buildings and fixtures but all working! Ill be back.

Quiet little cottages across from the beach. Close to shopping and attractions but away from all the hustle and bustle. Owners are very nice. Nothing fancy or extravagant but sufficient. It is pet friendly. It was nice to walk across the road onto the beach and watch the meteor shower. I thought the price was a little high but it... More

Just returned from a wonderful vacation in Flagler Beach Florida and stayed at the Whale Watch Motel for 6 nights. If you want fancy smancy, this is not that type of place. It has a weathered look to it and the owner told me this when I called to make reservations. I was pleasantly surprised with the cottage we stayed... More

Dated, but clean. If you're looking for "Fancy", this isn't it., but for Clean sheets, towels, fresh coffee in the room....with an ocean view at a very reasonable price this is it. Beginning to need some cosmetic and functional repairs, but it's American owned, cleaned every day, and with a view that's great. Nice folks who own it and service... More

This was my second stay at Whale Watch Motel and my husband's first. I first visited four years ago (almost to the day) and loved it then. Coming back, I loved it all over again. This time, we rented an efficiency. Because it was the two of us and we were trying to not over spend, we thought having a... More

Every time we are here in flagler beach, we stay here. It's not perfect but who cares. You're across the street from the ocean, have a full kitchen, and Barry and Patricia are great hosts. Great beach access. Flagler beach is a great place to live or visit.

We came here for a weekend getaway. We chose this hotel because it is dog-friendly, beside the ocean and has a kitchenette in the cottages. The owners live on site and checked on us frequently to make sure there was nothing else that we needed. The room was very clean and comfortable. There is a hose to wash the dogs... More

MY Mom, aunt, and I go to the Whale Watch whenever we need a girls beach getaway. The owners are friendly and accommodating. The place is clean and very comfortable. This is not a modern, cookie cutter, designer kind of place. Appliances, furniture, and fixtures are updated, but the actual building is Old Florida. It is homey, has everything you... More

I decided to talk a long vacation and choose the Whale Watch to get away. I was there 5 weeks in July and August 2013 and found exactly what I was looking for.

Fifth stay, probably the best as we had most of the place to ourselves. The Whale Watch is not a high end motel. It, however, is comfortable and the cottages are well stocked. Plus, the Atlantic Ocean is right across the street. What could be better for getting away from it all? The owners are super friendly and helpful on... More
