“First Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I spent time in the apartment with the balcony. The apartment was immaculate and the balcony was refreshing. I love this place. I have a second business trip coming up and unfortunately the apartment was not available so I chose the Large Efficiency Room. I look forward to my stay.

We obviously like the dolphin as we have stayed here every year for 15 years. It is neat, clean and conveniently located across the street from the beach and near shopping. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Love our dolphin vacation

We had some friends from Georgia staying in Pompano for a week at the Wyndham Sea Gardens. We live in Florida and wanted to drive over for a 1 night-2 day visit with them. The Wyndham had a 2 night minimum and was over $200/night so my wife and 15 yr old son booked the Dolphin Motel next door. It was perfect. The room was VERY clean - the staff (French Canadian owners) were very friendly. Close walk to the beach - great price ($75) - nice quiet location.

We stayed at the Dolphin Motel for two nights and three days while participating in a off-shore kayak fishing tournament. The location of the motel in relation to the pier was very close. The hotel is an older one, however the rooms were refurbished quite well and immaculate. The staff was comprised of a husband and wife with two young children, they were very pleasant and hospitable. We very much enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay here again in the future.

I have stayed in several Marriott brand hotels as I used to work for them. This charming place was cleaner than any Marriott I patronized. The room was spacious and very modern with beautiful terrazzo tile. The owners were as welcoming and friendly as ever and helpful when asked about the nearby restaurants. As other TA reviews have indicated, it is not a new hotel, but do not let that steer you away as it is spotless inside and out and only old in the sense of the art deco style architecture of the building. It is across the street from the beach. We found this hotel would be perfect for a quiet holiday where one was to unwind with beach and poolside fun.
