This is definitely old style Florida motel. It has been well maintained, is very clean, and the staff super friendly. We checked in several hours late, and found a note in the lobby directing us to our room. The manager came down to make sure things were to our liking, and let me know that she had taken the liberty... More

1st. time in this area. Very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable owners. Recommended great places to eat. 3 mile drive to the beach - very clean. Close to Restaurants. Oza Inn was just like the website - no surprises. Immaculately clean. Wished we could have stayed longer than 1 week.

The room was absolutely wonderful, very clean, tile floors, the room we stayed in had a kitchenette, beds were wonderful, very comfortable, the bed frames are Italian metal frames with only a mattress and so comfortable. These folks really have made these rooms adorable, no smoking or pets allowed, which means no fleas and... More

Extremely clean. Nice heated pool. Rooms spartan with horrible hard beds. Breakfast food free. Owner does not take criticism well so don't complain. Wifi almost nonexistent. Lots of rules. Difficult to get to and from because of one way situation.

We had stayed several times at another B & B, and when it wasn't available we chose this for a six-night stay based on positive TripAdvisor reviews. From reservation to check-out, the owners made us feel welcome, and the accommodations (a little suite, with a bedroom, bath, and living-dining-kitchenette area) were excellent, with a comfortable bed and fairly well-equipped kitchen...
