Cute small resort with less than 20 rooms that surround an inviting pool and better yet the Atlantic Ocean just 3 blocks away. Ample parking available which was a pleasant surprise. Owners and staff were very pleasant and accommodating. Close enough to the night action, but far away enough so it doesn't keep me up all night. I will be... More

This quaint, family run resort (new management took over in September 2014) is in walking distance to great restaurants and night life . It is just two blocks in from the beach. The pool is warm and clean, my kids loved that it was right outside the door. The rooms are not typical hotel rooms, they have more personality and... More

My son and I ended up extending our trip and staying 10 days over the Easter Holiday, simply because this property was so very wonderful. I am delighted to have discovered this gem and am blown away by the transformation that has taken place with the new owners, (I had stayed here a few years ago.) The Tropicaire is truly... More

What a great week we had here! After two nights we were able to upgrade into a newly furnished suite! The resort is very close to the beach, they are friendly and responsive to anything you need. It is a pleasure to see the individual tasteful touch of each room and how the new owner continues to transform the motel... More

We stayed for 3 evenings before a week condo elsewhere, and then scheduled one night at the end of our vacation before flying out. Two nights after we'd checked out, I received a phone call from Ted on Sunday morning, canceling our reservation for the following Friday night because they didn't have room for us. I had reserved it with... More

Close to the beach, stores and night life, but not very clean. Our feet were black from walking on the floor, so we washed utensils, plates and cups before using them, even the chairs. We will not go back.

If your looking for the Ritz Carlton then this is not the property for you. If your looking for personal service by the owner, friendly staff and in the heart of everything this place is for you. Rooms have no carpet, which is really nice. They are cleaned everyday, and if you need anything at all (even a beach towel)... More

If you have a choice don't go there, the hotel need an overhaul. Everything is old and stained. The pillows were flat and yellow. The bed spread was stained and. Although the hotel is non smoking, the room reeked of cigarettes.

I'm Manager of the Tropicaire Motel, after reading this negative review I'd to write my comments. I do remember those couple who step in from the street looking for place to stay. At the time I did not have any room available but did show them room which will be open in a few days. They did like and decided... More

This motel is very highly recommended by me and my family. I have been there three times already with my family and every time we had very good time. Rooms are clean with small kitchen and no carpet which was important to me. Rooms cleaned every day. There is an outdoor pool and grill area. Motel is placed in very... More

If you're looking for high-end amenities or a more raucous spring break-type atmosphere, then you're definitely better off at a major chain hotel several miles south. My girlfriend and I spent several days here lounging by the motel's charming pool and engaging with the world-traveling guests that filled up the rooms. Our room had a small kitchen, an outdoor grill... More
