“Absolutely Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2010

I wasn't looking for a big sterile hotel chain and this was perfect! I called a friend who lives in Cocoa Beach and she recommended it, I figured if the locals approved then it was worth a try. I was looking for a clean room, on the ocean, with internet and a Bathtub.The studio was very clean, had a well stocked kitchen and the place was so quiet. I loved being able to walk down the steps and being right on the beach. The beds were comfortable, the A/C was cold and the showers hot. Since I was travelling alone safety was an issue but the place seemed Very safe (owners live on premises). And Best of all, the studio was less than $100/night! I will stay there again and I highly recommend it to anyone!

This is a quaint mom and pop, family run motel perfectly located in a quiet little area of Cocoa Beach. This is a beach motel, so are you going to get a continental breakfast and wireless service? No. Did the motel spend a fortune in matching drapes and furniture, posturpedic mattresses & designer carpet? No. If this is what you're looking for then head about five miles North and go stay at the Holiday Inn. However if you're looking for a quiet little hideaway, clean rooms so close you can hear the waves crash from your bed, a little tiki hut, nesting turtles, simple, no -frills ambience, then this is the place for you. I have a son w/asthma and did not have any issues w/ smelly rooms, cleanliness or dirty linens. It's a beach motel, flip flops are the dress code. I'll go here again and again, well worth the money.

Booked the hotel after finding it on google earth. Had stayed in another hotel 20yrs before and it was no longer in business. Decided to take a chance and stay at Anthonys. What a great decision. Quietest hotel i have stayed in. Came back after going to Kennedy space center to find room had been cleaned and even change that was on dresser was arranged into a design. It is not the Ritz, but a beach front deck and great view for the Atlas rocket launch.

I read the reviews and was excited to book our 3 nights here. We got there, and yes a great location right on the beach, and a quiet area. BUT, the rooms were dirty, smelled with heavy smoke, being covered by lysol. I was a hospital janitor, and other positions which I dealth with smell and dirt, etc. I have a strong stomach, but it was too strong even for me, the child had asthma and was complaining about unable to tolerate the smell, and was worried about breathing problems. The other family member also a veteran of hospital blood and guts, and smells could not tolerate it. We are mellow folks, but the dirt, the cracks in the walls, the smell was too much even for us. The price is too much, the location great, away from everything, and once a problem arises, the once friendly hotel desk clerk, becomes an angry stumbling man. I lost the money, no refunds, and off we went disappointed and sad, the great potential exists in that place.

Stayed here on recommendation of the hotel we had planned on after it was damaged in a storm. It was great. Nice clean rooms, freshly repainted and (one of my cleanliness requirements) my white socks were stll white after walking around the room in the evening. A quite place right on the beach in a more residential area. Friendly service, nice fellow guests, both couples and families. Close to NASA. Great place to relax and unwind. Will stay there again. This was a great start to a vacarion with two friends before we headed to Disney and Universal. Next time will do Disney first and then Anthony's.

My husband and I stayed at Anthony's on the Beach in March 2008. It is a small mom & pop motel. It is very simple, but was more than we expected from a motel. We loved it. It is located approx 6 miles south of Ron John's, near a mostly residential area. The motel is directly on the beach. We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff was very kind and helpful. The room was cleaned daily and the property itself was very clean. We had breakfast and lunch everyday in the back patio, which overlooks the ocean. It's a breath taking view. We didn't have anything negative to say about the property or its location. We will stay here again without question.

If you want to try surfing, there is a small surf shop right next door that has surf board rentals for 20.00 for half a day. My husband TRIED to surf..lol.. he wasn't very good at it, but at least he tried. You will see surfers all over the beach. It's pretty cool to watch them.

If you're looking for something simple, clean and budget in a quiet part of the beach, this is your spot. FYI.. the motel does not have a pool. But who needs a pool when you have an entire beach and ocean in your backyard?

  • Liked — The beach view was amazing
  • Disliked — The rooms overlooking the beach are smoking rooms :(
