“Nice Old Florida Style at GREAT RATES!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2011

We stayed over Easter break with our (2) young children 4 days and found the location great, just yards to the beach across A1-a,
Its old Florida style with updated kitchens = Full refrigerators,stove,micro,tile floors,and linens,
Rooms have different lay outs and amenities so ask,,,,,before you book.
long term rentals can be had at better rates for those with longer stay plans.
With friendly and attention to detail owner on site we found this older Florida style hotel well worth the rate we paid!
We loved the gas grill on site and owner had a back up tank! for us to grill out our steak and Florida lobster.
Rooms were quiet at night with the ocean breeze blowing in at night it was great!

If your looking for a good value and understand the nuances of older hotels but like a clean room with great location to all the SE Florida attractions as in close to scuba dive boats up the street,Ft.Lauderdale down the road,Palm Beach north a short drive, 2 hr. drive to the Keys. Neighborhood is ok,parking in front of hotel,pool is clean and warm,plenty of deck chairs for sunning around the pool and chairs & tables on site .
I rate this a good value hotel for the budget minded traveler, and the owner is friendly and helpful!
well worth the rate we paid.
We will return soon,

Room Tip: Call ask for owner and book direct.

After staying in a few hotels west of the I95 I moved to Pompano beach Shores Terrace Efficiencies and found it clean, tidy and safe which was a great relief after experiencing the western suburbs.
The motel was run by Nazih, his wife Josephine and the son Milad who all were accommodating and provided a warm welcoming atmosphere which was a breath of fresh air after dealing with hotel staff from other properties.
The phone calls were free across the States and Canada, The beach was a less than a 100 meters away and the swimming pool on the property was heated to a comfortable temperature which was great for my bad back.

My wife & I stayed here a week because we could see the effort Nazih (owner), Josey (his wife) & small staff have put into fixing it up and keeping it very clean. While not a big fancy place, it is very well located with the ocean & beach across A!A two minutes walk, and has a nice pool. Has Wi-Fi, free phone calls to US & Canada, full kitchen, BBQ & picnic area. Other guests were hugging & taking pictures with owners & staff (Donna) when they left after 3-weeks so you know they made you feel right at home.

This place was not bad place to stay, as long as you have a car. Room was clean. And the staff was friendly. If your traveling on a budget, It is worth it.

This motel is OK if you can't find anything better. A little overpriced in my opinion. Close to the beach but far from anything else.If you don't have a car,don't stay in this motel!
There are no stores in 2 mile radius. The owner is really nice and staff are very accommodating. Strange people stay in motels like this. As usual, pictures look much nicer than what you get there! Expect an occasional cockroach running by!
