“Cutest place ever...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Stayed at this motel again...room 8. Other reviewers have commented on the small bathrooms, and for sure, they are tiny....but expected in these old cottages. The rooms are spotless, smell fresh and linens like they were put on an hour before you checked in. Really cute and comfortable...pricing is consistent or lower than other motels in the area.

Very nice folks and they have everything there you'll need for a day at the beach. You are at the end of the block gulf side, so you are an easy walk to the water.

Room Tip: Beds and linens are awesome....always sleep great at this place! I was in room 8 which is next to t...

Stayed in room 5 . Bathroom is so small it's hard to even close the door and it had an awful smell like some bad bleach. Beach is a long walk. This place is way overpriced for what the rooms are like. Pictures are very deceiving.

We are sorry you had some issues during your stay.
Our bathrooms are small, but fully functional but cannot be enlarged in a 50 year old building.
The beach is about a 100 yard walk down a dead end street as it states on our website where all the pictures of the rooms and area are current. We furnish free carts, chairs, umbrellas and beach towels to all our guests.
Our rates are comparable to every other similar island motel and we are always sold out 99% in the time period you choose – so pricing is realistic.
If you had brought the odor issue or of your others at the time of your stay, we would have done everything possible to address them and make your stay more pleasant.
Thank you.

My husband and I winter on beautiful Anna Maria Island and have stayed at Haley's often, for a day or two, either at the beginning or the end of our vacation. This year again we found it to be quite comfortable. For a small motel they think of everything to help your stay be relaxed and enjoyable. Although we missed the complimentary use of bikes this year. We'll most likely be back. Pat From Boston

We would not stay here again because of the rates. AMI Island as a destination is wonderful and Haley's is very retro/classic but their prices should reflect the experience: a fair rate would have been 50% of what they charged. The pool is very small, it is a hike to get to the beach, and Unit 1 was extremely small. It seems Haleys is overcharging in light of all the great reviews about visiting this island. Visit AMI but stay elsewhere !

Sorry you didn't see the value in all that Haley's offers. We are a big part of why Anna Maria Island gets all the great reviews. We run 99% occupancy in the winter season which strongly suggests our pricing is extremely competitive - we have to turn away 100’s of requests every winter season. The pool is as large as the property allows – we are grandfathered in a quiet residential neighborhood.

Haley's is a classic motel that is less than a city block from a great beach. The rooms are cozy and recently updated. We stayed in room 6 which offered a well equipped kitchen.
The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable about what's going on on the island.
Haley's is located walking distance to some nice restaurants as well as the trolly stop (the island has a free trolly to get around on)
Haley's provides beach chairs, beach towels and a cart to help get your beach goodies to the beach.
I especially love their gardens and the Orchid Room where I spent some time strumming my guitar and reading. I also enjoyed the heated swimming pool.
There are gas grills on the premises and we put them to good use grilling fresh sea food.

Room Tip: Bathrooms are very nice but very small

Staff was awesome. Eric and Tom were very helpful! Just a short walk to the beach past some beautiful homes. Sunsets are amazing. House/Room we stayed in was just 1.5 years old. Well worth the road trip!!
