The MOM in me gave the room the "no sock" test... meaning that when we checked in, I immediately took off my sandals and walked all over the room, feeling for any particle or dirt or grime.... nothing.

We have been going to the island for many years and usually rent a house for the whole week. We only had a 4 day weekend this year so needed to find a motel.

The pool was so refreshing after a trip to... More

It was our first time to Anna Maria Island, for a family reunion. Family run Motel, perfectly situated amongst pretty houses, steps away from beautiful Holmes Beach where you can take long walks on a nice sandy beach and watch the famous Gulf of Mexico sunsets each nights!! For the price of a room each unit is a homey efficiency... More

You can tell when an owner takes pride in their property, this is one example. Very clean and well attended, and good overall location. They had everything you needed for a great stay including beach chairs and towels.
