I NORMALLY wouldn't take time to write bad reviews but..this place is absolutely repulsive!!! It is totally vile. Run away! I dont want any other travelers making the mistake my boyfriend i did by looking at the description. Sure, its close to the beach..but this unsanitary of conditions (even for a party) is not worth it. For 60 plus a... More

This place is a dump. The water SHOULD NOT be swallowed in any way. Smells like sulfur. Window air conditioning which was not turned on. Not cool in Florida. He does no maintenance on the rooms. He said we did not have a reservation for that night. Trip Advisor should not even list this place.

I seriously wonder if this motel is up to code? As a last resort, I booked a room to get some well-needed sleep. As soon as I pulled in the parking lot, I realized I was better off sleeping on the hood of my car. Sadly, I cannot say one good thing about this place. The room I checked into... More

This is the most disgusting motel I have ever stayed in. First off, we don't even open the door and there's a lizard inside the window. We get it, it's florida, so we move on. Open the door, the room reaks, Ac didn't work, and forget about showering. The water temp was only scorching hot and ice cold, only in... More

Hotel is in a word seedy. We did not want to put our heads on the pillows. Bad from the start: key did not work, shower looked dirty, did not have the listed amenities, furniture broken, hot water negligible, towels dingy and thin. Do I need to go on ? We were exhausted but slept about 3 hours and left... More

Please do not consider staying here. I had reservations but after a look at the exterior and then the room itself, I had to get my money back....no way would I feel safe here. Filthy, door lock was broken, water on the floor, nastiness in the kitchenette.....and apparently there were "families" living here, sort of hanging out on the balcony... More

Was scared my car was going to get broken into just by the look of the sketchiness. Dead bolt was ripped out, light fixtures didn't work, TV broken, squeaky ac, rusty fridge and frosted freezer. Moldy shower, blood stains on the sheets. Holes in the sheets and comforter. Stained pillows and pillow cases. Black hairs on the pillows. Stained towels... More

We arrived in the Sebastian area late on Saturday and stopped here because it was the first we saw. The owner said his credit card machine wasn't working, so we paid cash. When we asked, he said the ice machine was broken.The room had broken light fixtures, broken TV, dirty carpets and old bedspreads. There was no smoke detector. Had... More

Don't waste your time with this one! Dirty, no service what-so-ever! We were not even provided a waste basket or a chair! No smoke detector (it was on the closet shelf) exposed wires. Also exposed wires in the bathroom! Wonder when and IF there has ever been an inspection! Very doubtful! had to make our own beds! Owner could care... More

A couple of years ago my brother and his family came to visit for a couple of days and since we didn't have enough room for everyone (six people), I suggested the Sandrift Motel. Years ago we had visitors on a couple of occasions and the overflow stayed there. It was okay...nothing fancy, but close to home and convenient. So,... More
