This is definitely an "Old Florida" kind of place. No spring breakers allowed, so any time visit will be quiet. You can sit on balcony and view the yachts go down the inter-coastal and there is small marina connected to hotel. Not really beach views or sunset views, but close. You will need to walk across huge parking lot and around a condo property to get to the beach. Beach is clean and wide with a mix of young and elderly sand lovers. The hotel has small bar that collect some locals with the quests. Very small pool, but relaxing. They attempt to keep the "old" property as clean as possible, and the staff very friendly to everyone. If they updated the rooms, which are surely in need, you would lose some of the charm and for sure increase the prices. The free breakfast was coffee, yogurt and packaged muffins. It "ain't South Beach" but close enough to sleep comfortable and take a leisurely drive to Miami sands anytime day you wish. If you are on of those folks checking out things in life's, such as "who owns the most toys or most expensive patio", take one of the inter-coastal tour boats, an interesting couple of hours.
