This was our 3rd stay at the Dolphin in the past 10 years. Hotel has been basically maintained but could use a little more TLC. Staff was kind, courteous, and helpful. Rooms were generally clean but right on the beach you get what you pay for. The 50 yard walk to the loungers on the beach is always welcome. Close... More

We love the Florida Dolphin!!! The management and staff is excellent,always friendly, and accommodating!!! We come here year after year and it is the perfect family getaway. The beach is Excellent and a very short walk. It is nice because it is away from the busy street but Close to restaurants. We will keep returning here for years to come!

We were able to get a last minute ressie over Memorial weekend and they did not "gouge" us with a holiday rate. $85 for a king efficiency. There was a two night minimum which worked out ok. They said they were leaving for the day (3PM) and would leave the keys in the room - I guess this is a... More

Florida Dolphin motel is an older motel that is clean and a good value. We had a comfortable king bed unit with a kitchen/living room. Great air conditioning. There are two pools on the property. This motel is only one block to the beach -- saving you parking fees + often hard-to-find parking in the area. Walking distance to many... More

I love this little place and they have additional adjacent property - ask for a corner unit by one of the pools - right side, ground level, your vehicle right outside your door for free. The beach is just across the street (not a busy street) and Rick's Grill is just a couple blocks away. Great food and cold beverages!

No, of course this is not a 5-Star Resort. However, the owners obviously take care of it like it is. This was an unbelievable deal for the price. I was only there for one night but, I can see how some couples come year after year and stay for a week or month or even longer. Sure some could complain... More

Great people, owner is very accommodating, prices are reasonable and close to beach and eateries! Can stand to use a little facelift in pool area. Luv it otherwise! Go to Rick's Reef on Saturday for lobster macaroni & cheese and Stella. Yum!!

So clean, great location, large rooms less than a block from the beach! We stayed in an apartment for $100 a night and it was SO worth the money! Location was amazing! You can walk to many waterfront restaurants, bars and hotels. The beach is beautiful there and so clean! This motel was spotless and I'm pretty picky about cleanliness!... More

Small hotel a block from the beach. Clean - nothing fancy but good value for the money. Convenient to all the "night spots". Clean pools. Quiet enough (except for the people who came home drunk at 2:23 AM!).
