I stayed for two nights in a bay room view with a queen size. The room was small but equipped with everything that you need ( from small fridge to toaster, plates and wine opener) the room was all freshly painted in white and the bed extremely comfortable. The view of the bay was very nice and quiet. Direct access... More

My partner and I visited here for one night on our way down to Key West last year. So things may be a little different now. When we first arrived were shown a room that was ok. We soon noticed a strong smell of cannabis. It was coming from the adjoining room occupied by a large family with young children.... More

The rooms had kitchens and out back by the bay was a gas grill available for use. The pool is crystal clear and refreshing. The room was very clean and... More

LOVR LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE. It is an older small beachside motel with effeciecy type rooms. Clean and quiet. The pictures do not do the rooms justice (Rm #5, poolside). It is a very short walk to the beach down a grass path. The pool is very nice and large considering the size of the propery. Even on the weekend... More

We stayed here for one night in June 2014 and booked the room from Germany. When we arrived in the early evening, the office was closed. There was an envelope at the office door with our name. Inside were some instructions to find the right room. The room was unlocked and the key laid on the table. It was a... More

Away from the hustle and bustle. Took the trolley to Time Square, off an on day pass $1.50. We had bayside efficiency. Perfect for us. Lounge chairs and table with umbrella and chairs right outside our door. Staff extremely helpful and the owner was a joy. They took pride in the cleanliness of the rooms. Pool was awesome and heated.... More

Just stayed here in May 2014. Lots of great updates to the rooms since the last time we stayed. The rooms have everything you need if you prefer to buy groceries and eat in. They even have grills on the bay side for a grill out! Their dock is great to fish off of. Gorgeous sunrise views on the bay.... More
