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

Have been here 4 nights, and have had a very enjoyable stay. Nice, clean rooms on the water with fishing pier. Nice Salt water pool. Gas grills provided for cooking. Most rooms have Kitchette, and everything you need! Close to all activities either in Puta Gorda, or Port Charlotte. We will be back!

A bit pricey for a motel, but location was gorgeous overlooking the bay, landscaping was perfect and cleanliness and kitchenette in room completed the stay. Having a dock to walk out too was sweet. So shallow,you could see large fish,dolphins,turtles from a distance. Mgr was a sweetheart.

Never got to stay. Called to reserve one weekend night and the hostess said that would hurt their weekend opportunity. We asked if Fri-Sat would work-yes-so we reserved. Later another host called and said a mistake was Mae; they were over booked. I asked if someone called the full weekend- she wouldn't answer!!
