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

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!
