This is not a hotel. It is a wonderful motel with a kitchen. The grounds and pool are beautiful and well maintained. The owner is very helpful and efficient..she is a gem. The location is walking distance to the beach, market and great restaurants

I hesitate to even write this as I would like it to be my little secret so I could always get a room! The grounds are nicely maintained and inviting. The pool is very clean. The 1 bedroom apartment is just the right size for 2-4 people with amble space. The location is quiet, 2 blocks and an easy walk... More

This motel appears somewhat dated from the exterior, but is in a good state of repair and appears to be very well maintained. Our room was in a good state of repair and appeared modern with a very good bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. Common areas including the pool. And garden appear well maintained and well provided with furniture... More

I have always preferred small ma and pa motels more than big chain hotels, as all of my travels to south Florida has always been. The past few years though, the remaining small motels in the greater Fort Lauderdale area have become run down, as the area has gotten more commercialized and so much more nosier. NOT HERE AND NOT...

Stayed for 4 nights. Fully equipped kitchen, and a very short stroll to the beach and dining areas in e evening. Not 5* as we found the bed to be a little tired and not as comfy as hoped. Friendly owners and a warm pool, along with good outside seating areas. I would stay there again if the bed was... More
