They were too busy to clean rooms, collect trash, to provide towels and fresh linens. Few rats were running in the yard. Office door was closed most of the day. Either they stayed in their rooms or went out to run rrrands .Never again.

I had stayed at another motel down the street several times over the years and when they were out of business... I stumbled upon the Sea Horse. I am very grateful for that.
I honestly wasn't expecting much but when I walked into my room... oh my goodness... it was very nice and roomy...clean...spotless! Extremely welcoming and refreshing.
The owners' friendly relaxed attitude seemed to rub off on the guests...because after a day or two...the guests' who were strangers the day before, were now hanging out with one another around the pool and cooking on the grill and sharing food and drinks.
The Sea Horse motel is Americana at its best! I cannot imagine anyone giving this place a bad review...I highly recommend it when you are in Pompano Beach.

My husband and I stayed at The Sea Horse Motel for the first time while visiting the Pompano area. Most people traveling for the same event stayed down the road a larger chain hotel. They missed a great opportunity to experience a true Florida feel. This quaint little motel was perfectly cozy and clean. The pool was sparkling and inviting and the beach was about a 60 second walk across the street. The owner was very friendly and accommodating and made us feel at home and welcome. Everything from locally owned restaurants, chain restaurants, discount shopping and upscale shopping was just minutes drive from the motel. The Sea Horse was perfect for our short visit to Pompano Beach.

Really nice owners who make you feel at home. Super clean. The owners take a lot of pride in their place and in ensuring their guests are well taken care of. I loved the nostalgic feel of the place, especially the pink tile. I prefer this over the big chain hotels since it is more peaceful and personal. The pool was crystal clear and the perfect temperature. You can walk to the beach in less than 5 minutes...maybe even 2 if you're a fast walker. The owners allowed us to use the beach chairs on the beach (as long as you bring them back, of course) which was very convenient. There were very few people on the beach so it felt like a private oasis. There is a shower and additional spicket to rinse off the sand before exiting the beach. I know most beaches have this but thought I'd mention it anyway. Thank you Darren and Phillip. I'll definately be back!

The Seahorse Motel is small clean, simple and well cared for by the owner operator. A reminder of what Florida was before the birth of the giant concrete condos and hotels. We stayed in room 1 which is a large efficiency with a kitchenette. Period decorations, period Florida tile in the bathroom add to the charm and character of this unit. We only spent 1 night, but would have no trouble staying for a longer time.

Room Tip: All rooms are well maintained and face the pool. Room 1 was pretty convenient on the first floor.

We spent four great nights in room 1. The efficiency was super clean, well equipped with anything you need. And if you need anything else the owners are happy to help. Nice towels, great shower and comfortable bed. Just a very short walk to the beach where you can watch the sunrise every morning. It's a quiet area with a great Catholic Church just a block away. But not your place if you are looking for the party scene.

The pool is well landscaped, private and clean. You'd never know you were off a busy street. I hope to come back again and enjoy their hospitality. Better than the label 'motel' might cause you to believe.

WOW! What a delightful place to stay before my cruise! Next trip I will just stay there for a week instead of taking a cruise! LOL! The hosts are kind, knowledgeable and go out of their way to make you feel at home! I couldn't have been happier with the room either! Clean from top to bottom and as cute as it could be! The bed is soooooo comfortable, the shower is large and the water pressure is great! I enjoyed the coffee they supply also. Can't say enough about this motel! Give them a try - you won't be disappointed I assure you! Happy Travels!

Room Tip: This is a tiny motel which is what makes it so GREAT! Any room there is awesome!
