“60's Era Motel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Old 60's era motel but with character. The room was "funky" , but very clean and comfortable, complete with a kitchen. The grounds are a bit unkept, but welcome one to sit in the sun. There was morning coffee available at the pool gazebo. The owners even got up in the middle of the night to let us in, after our plane was delayed. They were pleasant, though there is a bit of a language barrier. Restaurants, drugstore and beach are all within walking distance. The price is very reasonable. We found it a great place to stay for a few days while exploring the area and getting ready to board a cruise ship.

stayed for one night and checked out. Rooms are gross, cockroaches are in the rooms. The grounds are crowed with growth and overgrown plant beds. The owners are the rudest people I have ever met and they barely speak English. Do not stay here, I have warned you!

We spent 6 days here in an upstairs suite and loved it. Lovely grounds, very reasonable price, quiet, excellent location and large rooms. Everything works, beds and sofas are comfortable and all is very clean. This is an old hotel with character - not an antiseptic modern place. I would certainly stay here again.

Perfect for myself and my teen sons.
Right across the street from a lifeguarded area of the beach (and the best pizza in Ft Lauderdale Franks on Atlantic Ave at the beach)
You could even get by with no car

Had a huge room with a kitchen and couch.
Everything in the kitchen was clean and ready to use.
Even had salt and pepper. Grill by the pool for steaks. Great pool and location. Owner in there with anything you need. Printed our boarding passes for the plane home and coupons for everglades tour.
No bad people there. All friendly
Great value

...We had a few roaches to keep us company in the kitchen. They seemed dazed and confused and slow as the place is clean and kept clean. I never saw any in the bathroom or the main room but it is something to consider if you decide to stay here. The grounds are beautiful and well kept by the owner who was very accommodating. Her husband is not talkative but in no way is he rude as some may have stated. The pool was cool-ish even though I could feel warm water spouting in.
Location is great too. Walgreens is practically next door as is the beach and a few restaurants are a short walk away over the bridge.

This place is obviously not a brand new hotel, but don't let that scare you away! This place has been well kept with lots of TLC! Beautiful tropical flowers bursting around every corner, so it feels much farther off the road than it actually is! (1 short block from beach) Maintained by a husband and wife, so there is not a full staff. My family and I come here at least once a year, sometimes twice and we always look forward to our stay at Sea Cove!! You will not regret the money you spend, even during peak season.

My husband and I stayed one night here to attend a concert. It is a very charming place. Yes, it is an older hotel but it was spotless! We stayed in #23 w/ king size bed and sleeper sofa. The kitchen would be great if you were staying for any length of time. Had a small stove, double sink, 12 cup coffee maker, full size fridge and pots and pans and untensils. The bathroom is small but big enough for what we needed. The shower is a bit smaller than most. I think it is even smaller than cruise ship showers! Every thing was very clean and had no musty odors.
The grounds are very tropical and inviting. Lots of little nooks to sit and enjoy the outside. They have a beautiful pool also. Did not get the chance to use it but looked very clean. There is free parking also.
You can head either north or south on Ocean Blvd and you will find grocery stores, liquor stores and restaurants.
Don't forget the beautiful beach!
