We love the El Mar Area and it is so hard to get a nice place at a reasonable price. We were 2 blocks north of the Pier and right by 2 Beach Portals so it was easy to get to the water. Maria went out of her way to make our stay excellent and she succeeded! We were only... More

My husband and I found this place online and called to book it. Pictures online looked ok, but they must have been 15 years old. Maria, who we spoke to and checked us in was very nice, but the place was very old, run down, dirty and not what it looked like online. The price was high for the shape... More

My family and I have been staying at this motel for years, specially for spring break or Independence Day weekend. We usually get about 3/4 different rooms. We absolutely love it here. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for. But the privacy they give is incredible. The pool is amazing.

I was so pleasantly surprised by this place. Yes it's old. But our room was immaculate and there was plenty of room for two adults a child and two dogs. They do have tiled rooms (just a handful) that are rented to pet owners. But above all, the owners were friendly and responsive to all of our needs. And if... More

I have had the worst most violating experience with this hotel. They gave my personal information from my check-in and name, address, phone and credit card info to a friend of the hotel employees. Do not go. they will violate your privacy. Ruined my vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This facility is right accross the quiet street of El Mar...so much quieter than the places on A1-A. We could sit on the front porch in afternoon with beautiful view of palm trees and ocean. The staff is attentive. We had reasonable rates for full one bedroom apartment, with full kitchen, living room, and king bedroom . Maid service daily.... More
