Bad points, bathrooms are outdated and very tiny. Room/ bathroom were not very clean, we had to fabreeze the room because it stunk, sugar ants everywhere. No place to put toiletries, had to put them on top of fridge that is stuck half inside "closet" with no door. Carpet stained and old, lukewarm water for taking a shower, no do... More

we spent a week here in April and it was so clean, such nice owners. We got married by the pool in their "tiki bar". We love to cook and did not want to spend a lot going out to eat so this was the PERFECT place for us. stove, oven, gas grills. And if you like to fish like... More

A great find and one I will return to. Not fancy at all, look at the pictures, this is a clean version of an older Motel 6, but the rooms are right on the bay looking over at Punta Gorda. The rooms are clean, larger than expected (room has a small kitchen, a sofa, dinette table) and the place has... More

Very quaint motel on the north shores of Charlotte Harbor. Location offers miniture golf and peaceful stroll along the Peace River. Also dining that offers sunset views over the river. If your lucky enough to stay during the 4th. of July. It offers a fantastic view of the Punta Gorda firework display.

We were surprised to find a motel like this still existed in Florida. Reminded us of the 60s when Mom-n-Pop motels were they rule of the day in the Sunshine State. Don't miss Captain's Table across the Bridge in Fisherman's Village for an exceptional seafood meal and great salad bar - right on the water and perfect for celebrating the... More

Great Staff = Great Stay at this little bay side motel. Very basic little family run "old Florida" style motel. The staff was fantastic. Very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay there again.

Very relaxing and comfortable place to stay. If your a fisherman not a better place to stay and to fish off the pier. Small kitchens with everything you need. The staff is very friendly. Beautiful place to view sunrise and sunsets. If you like the old Florida feel this is the place. We will be going back. Thank you for... More
