We stayed for one night prior to a Manatee Swim, hoping to see what an old time Florida Motel was all about. We realy enjoyed our stay. The old furnishings in the room was more than made up for by the size of the room itself. The Florida Pool was fantastic, our children loved the water-chute and the fact that fish could be seen swimming in the pool! All in all our stay was great fun and a real antidote to the bland chain hotels you so often find.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our little corner of "Paradise" was built starting in 1954,in stages all the way to 1957, and down through the years, past Managers did not take the "Loving Care" of it, that Mitch & I are trying to. We came into this position knowing that we had our work cut out for us, however, the extent of disrepair was not so evident. With each remodel, or repair, we are NOT "Putting on a Bandaid", as past Managers have, we are actually trying to bring it back to its former "Glory"! This takes Time & Money, and as we usually stay Booked throughout the year, we have to coordinate so that the rooms are "Down" for the least amount of time possible, and with the least amount of "Disruption" to the guests in residence. Times are rather tough with our economy in such disarray, and I hope that our "Loyal" guests continue to come and our "Potential" guests understand that Rome wasn't built in a day, and we truly are trying to do our Best with the resources that we have, and that eventually we will have the "Entire" Lodge restored to its Former Glory! Please, give us a chance, try us out, we will do everything in our power to make your stay as Pleasant & Memorable as possible!!! ... more less
