Our room was not what we have grown to be accustomed to though we found it to be clean, comfortable, and charming. Overall our... More

This was our third time visiting the motel because we enjoy the retro style of the place. They've been re-doing the interiors for the past few years now and we always look forward to going there. It's only a block from the beach and a block from Duval St. For us, it's the perfect place to setup and go anywhere... More

Wonderful place to stay for the price. Excellent staff (front desk, maintanance, housekeeping, and the gentleman who fixes the bikes). Very clean and comfortable! Loved our room and we can't wait to go back.
