“A piece of paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Our family of four stayed here in two rooms for just one night, wish we could have stayed longer!!
We had a very warm welcome from William who did all he could to make our stay comfortable. The motel is situated in a quiet area and is actually the last hotel before the residential area and is a very short walk to the beach. We walked to pier 60 and the beach walk so not too far.......
The rooms were clean and comfortable and the showers were very good. Each room had a fridge and coffee maker and free wifi was available. Outside each room was a seating area as well as loungers around the pool. The pool area was sheltered and a sun trap and the pool was very warm ;-) There were lots of quirky items dotted around which made for a welcoming comfortable stay.
I would definitely recommend this hotel as we had a very pleasant stay and if we were in the area again we would stay again!

very clean room with fridge and small microwave. Location was about 500ft to the beach at the north end witch made for less traffic. Very quiet location. This is a old style florida motel with great service. Will, who seemed to be everywhere, made the stay even more enjoyable. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: pool side provides less road noise and the pool is less that 20 ft from ground floor rooms

We came across this motel by chance and i am so glad we did. It ended up making our vacation. This place is like a little piece of paradise. The rooms were immaculate and quite spacious. They even smelled clean. The pool was awesome and it was warm which made it that much more enjoyable. The grounds were awesome too. They have a bbq you can use which we did and even if you looked you wouldnt find one piece of garbage around the place. The beach is a 2 minute walk across the road. The guy who looked after the place (will) was very friendly and helpful and made sure all our needs were met. We felt very welcome here. I was also impressed how quiet it was kept at night which was a concern for me since we have a toddler but you can clearly see there is a no nonsence policy and that puts a parents mind at ease. When we plan our next vacation in january or february this is definatly where i want to stay for two weeks. This is my new favorite place. Thanks for a great vacation.

Price adverised was $69.00 ON HOTEL WEBSITE AND ON OTHER BOOKING SITE as well I Booked a room and received a confirmation , then I received a call from Will (ASSITANT MANAGER AT HOTEL) that the price was actually $86.00, TOLD HIM THAT WAS NOT THE PRICE ON THE WEBSITE AND HE SAID " I WILL CALL MY GM AND CHECK" received call back that hotel was booked for month of march, request GM nummber was given number for Shirley - she told me that there was a room but it was $99.00 and she was not going to accept the $69.00 because that was during spring break and she could get more money for the room. I understand that but that was not the price that was advertised, isnt there a law against FALSE ADVERTISING. I was told 3 different stories and the website still still shows the $69.00 rate .BAD BUISNESS, BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE AND JUST MORALLY WRONG. This have been reported to BBB and the Department of Buisness and Regulation in Florida. UPDATE - website now showing $89.00- wtf

Room Tip: Dont get any rooms from this unethical establishment

Great location one block from the beach, neat and tidy rooms you won't spend much time in, and most important to me very dog friendly. Will was very attentive and was very accommodating. There is much to do nearby, and I will definitely be back. The pool area is well set up with a grill, the property is well maintained as well.

Room Tip: Wherever they let you stay with your dog is a good room to me.

This is our second stay at the North Sunrise Hotel and just like the first it was very nice. We weren't coming until very late after our wedding reception and they left the key inside and the door unlocked for us, which was very surprising. The manager is very nice and very attentive to all of our needs! We truly enjoy our stay here and would definitely come back again!
