Our family spent 2 pleasant nights at this property (room #117). It is very homey with a 50s-style vibe--it reminded me very much of the little family-run places I've seen in the Florida Keys. Only one key per room and rooms have basic locks (one on the door handle and a deadbolt). Our room had an en-suite bathroom (with hairdryer),... More

From first contact to check out, our stay at Banana Bay was wonderful. Because you cannot reserve a room online, I initially emailed to find out about availability. I quickly received a response from front desk manager Betty, advising that she had a room with a king bed, a twin bed, and a kitchenette, and that it was waterfront. I... More

I paid for a one weeks' stay at the Banana Bay motel. The owner, Anand, swiped my credit card and it was at this point that he became extremely inappropriate with me. He came out from around the counter and hugged me! He then told me he had a foot fetish and asked if I would allow him to give... More

This is our third time here and it is still clean, comfortable and friendly. The pool is very warm like a warm bath. If you are looking for a new building this is not for you but if you like the old Florida charm this is the place. There are new bedspreads and new T.V's this year. You need to... More

This motel is in a nice location on the water, but there is much improvement needed. The rooms are okay size and convenient with kitchen, but not very clean. Gas grills are in bad shape and only got one to work (on 1 side only). Website advertises heated pool. I noticed a review on tripadvisor that said the pool was... More

First and foremost I am writing this review to express my gratitude to the Banana Bay staff for accommodating my husband, little one and I for the past two and half months. Our journey to Florida did not start out well. We sold our house in N.C. and the day before we had to leave our home of 28 years... More
