Due to the horrible smell in the room we only stayed for one night. The owner told us he would reimburse for the second night -we already paid. He did not do this, even after confirming to do it in several phone conversations we have still have not received the money. Next to this we believed the rooms are very... More

And although I am reluctant to share it, its a must for families and those seeking beauty and the true natural habitat of Florida The hotel is out of the 70's - But... More

My family and I stayed at this motel and it's stand alone houses two weeks ago for a wedding and it was one of the worst experiences we all have had at a motel. First, when we made the reservations, I had reserved one of the houses, and we were sent confirmations and held it with our credit card. Just... More

I received our confirmation number and planned for a romantic get away. We have been going there since 2009.I tried calling them the same... More

I have been going to this motel since the late-80's. It has not changed a bit, and I am happy about that. It is vintage 70's, and takes me back to when I was a kid. If you want modern-everything, don't stay here because it means you came here for the wrong reason. Again, it takes me back to a... More

Could be a wonderful little gem- great location for turtle watching and a secluded beach- pathetically managed unfortunately. Rooms desperately outdated, not really clean, not a place I would return to, unfortunately.
