The Sea Vista is a hotel that's been at New Smyrna for decades! It's know for its relaxed party atmosphere. The tiki bar is cute with a few games to play outside while drinking or eating. Big Jenga, connect four and checkers and TVs are the entertainment. There's a kitchen in the middle of the tiki bar and food is... More

Reserved 2 rooms for a whole week. Had to leave, we were offered drugs, saw a fight, witnessed drug deals and the room was leaking gas from the stove. Then, the owner would not refund our money. Very dirty, housekeepers would not clean. Unfortunate. Stay at your own risk!

This place is right off of a train set. It is directly on the ocean. Tiny little place. Food is great at the Tiki Bar. Small pool that my kids absolutely loved. They could walk down a single flight of stair right onto the sand while my wife and I continued to eat on the patio of the Tiki bar.... More

I checked in on a whim after spending some time at the tiki bar, using the pool and taking advantage of the beach access. The motel is an old beach motel, directly on the Atlantic Ocean. There is a small pool and a large tiki bar. The service at the bar is fast and friendly. The public restroom is not... More

Considering the age of the property, I was pleasantly surprised in the room. We had an efficiency, which was more than enough for us. Room was clean, a little small, but again, it's an older property. Great Tiki Bar & the staff is very friendly. Only drawback is there's not enough parking, especially on a holiday, and the A/C will... More

To say our room was filthy would be an understatement! The kitchen floor was so sticky that it pulled the shoe off my foot. The entire complex is in dire need of maintenance. Nails protruding from the decking pose a real hazard! The pool is bathwater hot and I feel certain it is NOT a heated pool. While I realize... More

If you're looking for a very reasonably priced beach stay in Florida, I would highly recommend the Sea Vista. Pros: - Location is right on the beach. Some places claim to be on the beach in New Smyrna Beach, but this one truly is on the beach. - Price is great! I can't think of a more gratifying place to... More

Just wanted to tell you about maybe THE BEST GROUPER SANDWICH I have ever had in my life. Went to the ramshackle tiki bar tonight at the tiny Sea Vista motel on the beach in New Smyrna Beach for a farewell party for a nephew who got a promotion with his company and a transfer from NSB to Dallas, Texas,...
