“Sunrise is close to the beach and a great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We were a little skeptical to stay here after reading some of the reviews, but friends recommended the place, so we went for a long weekend. We were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were extremely clean, and the bed was comfortable. It was right across the road to the beach and close to all our favorite restaurants and bars. The owners are hard to understand because they are German, but were always available to answer questions or help when needed. You'd think because of the low cost of the rooms (compared to other motels in the area) that it would be a little shady, but we were completely satisfied and pleasantly surprised on how nice & clean it was to stay there. Take your cooler though....no ice machine was available.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor in efficiency apartment. Room 204

1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We confirmed a 1 bedroom place and ended up with only a partial divider wall. We were on the top floor. The place could be called clean - until you walk on the carpets. Our feet were black in 2 minutes. So gross. The fridge buzzes constantly. The window AC runs non-stop. Just the constant noise from that was enough to drive me nuts.
The furniture is from the 80's - and I think that was the last time the place had new beds. The fold out sofa was seriously just coils covered with fabric. The queen bed wasn't much better. Everyday I woke up feeling worse than the day before with new aches and pains. Shower head gave little more than a trickle and the shower curtain was filthy.
The small pool was salt water and had a tiny deck. Usually filled with 20 something's drinking alcohol. Used the on-site laundry - took 3 cycles to dry the load and still had to hang some stuff in room to dry.
I used to think I wasn't a snob, but apparently I have evolved. The decent internet was the only redeeming feature-but that isn't why we drove to Florida! Booked for a week, left after three days - couldn't take it! No offer by the 'friendly' owner to refund any of our unused time nor did she question why we were leaving so early. I understand the 'Vacancy' sign.

Room Tip: Go see what they are offering before you pay!!

We stayed a week at the Sunrise Motel and LOVED it!! Upon first glance, you may think, "Bring your Lysol," but this motel was cleaner than ANYWHERE we have ever stayed!! There were no roaches, no stains, no mold unlike more expensive choices down the road. The pool was warm and sparkling, and they opened it for us even on cold days!! The owner was friendly, and incredibly hard working!! Rob, the night watchman was wonderful, accommodating and sweet. We NEVER had a problem with noise, drinking or ugly behavior. We will be coming back for sure!! Don't let "old beds" keep you away.... you don't go on vacation to sleep all day. :)

Everything was great but the mattresses desperately need to be replaced..Unfortunately we who have been coming for years have started looking for other places because of the bed situation. How do we match the cost but what value do you put on a good nights sleep . What a dilemna!!!!

Room Tip: Main Floor

The housekeeping is the only part of the stay worth the money.the owner is very unpleasant,almost judgemental when dealing with customers.the"nightwatchman"is drunk to the point of passing out nightly,never once put a shirt on while dealing with customers.also,while we were on our vacation staying there,on several occasions, overheard "nightwatchman"talking bad about,making fun of,and discussing guests personal issues with other guests while drinking.alltogether,our 2 week stay was uncomfortable as a family with 2 small children.since we are not drinkers, staying up outside all night, laughing loudly,or just ignoring the domestic disturbances next-door nightly, wouldn't recommend this place to anyone other than those looking to get drunk all night,overpay and be laughed at and looked down on by the"owner"and her"nightwatchman"(aka-bouncer)!!!!

We have recently gone through many changes to our motel including our staff. After hearing concerns from our guests, we had to let go of some staff so that guests can feel comfortable staying with us. Please be assured that we have hired new staff that will help us in providing our guests with excellent customer service. We are a family owned business and we have been in the motel business for over 16 years. We strive to always make improvements and we apologize for your dissatisfied stay with us. We hope you consider us in the future.

We paid a little over $400.00 for a week...we had a two bedroom apartment with small kitchen area large living room and jet tub. I couldnt belive the size of the unit for the money. It was about a 3 min walk to the beach across stree. A couple places to eat in walking distance. They do have a pool which was never crowded. The furniture was old and nothing matched but hey for that price how could you complain? You really use the room to shower and sleep. Ask for room 103 a few people told us that was the biggest unit and we lucked out. Two double beds in 2nd bedroom and queen in the other. Dont know if living room had pull out never checked into. I would go back in a heartbeat it was nice to stay at a smaller hotel for a change.

Room Tip: ask for room 103 i heard we lucked out with room
