We drove all the way from New Jersey. The owner told us they strived on old Florida vibe and cleanliness. Well.....It's def old Florida and not as clean as they say. Pics do not do depict the place. Will never return and hope you don't make the mistake staying here.

We have stayed in Flagler Beach before and were looking to return. I was having a hard time finding something affordable. I happened upon this motel and read the reviews here. We decided to take the plunge because the reviews were good and the prices were affordable. This is NOT a fancy place. This is nothing like a chain. If... More

I spent a week in Flagler visiting friends that live there. Their guest room was full so I found a motel. This one was recommended to me by locals as clean and safe. The owners were great. The room was clean and I had no problems. Next time I would ask for a cottage as they are a bit farther... More

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".

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
