We had the misfortune of booking this room on the advice of a friend we came to town to visit who chose it for its location without setting foot inside. Disgusting. The room stunk so badly of dry rot that a week later, my clothes still held the smell. The office was so thick with the staff's cigarettes' smoke that... More

Excellent room, great staff, upgraded room at no extra cost. We had a wonderful time and will be going back. Just across the road from the beach. Also had a wonderful sitting area outside the rooms. Free coffee and tea in the mornings.

Our extended family stayed here recently, occupying 7 rooms for a long weekend. Perfect!!! We were able to "hangout" in the small courtyard in the middle of the motel, which was very relaxing. The rooms were spacious, though a bit outdated in decor. But they were very clean. The managers were very friendly and helpful. And the location is perfect...across... More

I will never stay there. It is not worthy stay. Especially a landlord is poor and he threw away garbage around the hotel. I think he never have enough intelligence to be human beings. I wish she were not stupid.

We stayed here in 4 rooms with family. The rooms were big and the beds were okay. The rooms needed to be updated and could have been cleaner. The owners family was also on site and took over the pool area with their budweiser and cigarettes. This made the pool unusable while they were there. Close to the beach and... More

I live in Vero beach and decided to stay for a "getaway" weekend without having to travel! I live on the main land and wanted to spend a weekend the beach in a familiar area. The islander is clean, comfortable and well kept inn . The on premise managers are personable and easy going. We were able to enjoy the... More

What a pleasant surprise when we stayed here for a week. We both grew up in Vero and remembered this quaint inn on the beach from our childhood, but neither of us had ever stayed here. The staff is tremendous -- from the front desk to housekeeping. The inn is small, comfortable and well maintained. The location is great --... More

We stayed here one night for a little getaway and I'm so glad we found it. There was a birthday party and bbq at the pool when we got there and everyone was very nice and welcoming. The staff is great. The decor is old Florida-Key West casual and comfortable. The inn is within walking distance to the beach, shops,... More

Mary Jane was so wonderful and accommodating. A large group of us were in town for a wedding and booked about 60% of the rooms in the hotel and what a blast we had! Each evening we ended the night by sitting in the courtyard and reminiscing. The rooms are like little bungalows and it's easy to slip into the... More

Husband and I drove from ft laud for a quick one night getaway. We stayed across from the pool. Front desk was very welcoming, courteous and helpful. It's in a great location, in the middle of everything and walking distance from Waldo's and the beach. I love the decor and colors; key west style, very cute. There's even a bench... More
