“Clean and ideal for families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Always stay at this motel and have been going for years. Family owned and very clean and friendly. Rooms are spacious and added bonus of kitchen. Outdoor area and pool very clean and well kept. Great value for money and area ideal for touring. Johns Pass a short drive away or even better a walk along the beautiful beach! Many bars and restaurants within walking distance check out Ricky T's for a real bar experience or Sloppy Joes for beautiful sunsets, both popular places to eat. As a family will always return to this little piece of paradise and know many others who do the same!

Room Tip: Choose upstairs so you can watch the beautiful sunsets1

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

I have been staying here for at least 3 years. it is only 1 hour from my house and a perfect spot across from the beach. The service is very good and the rooms are very clean. I love to hang out at the pool when it is hot. I get sunburned every time but don't care. This is a very nice place for the money.

I LOVE this hotel! Spent a week here and even made friends while staying here! Right next to the beautiful beach, shops, and johns pass. The service was ok.. She told us to not use some of the toilet paper, but otherwise then that I'd say everything's amazing. Clean beds, no bugs whatsoever. I stayed in room #123 and it has a beautiful balcony! Not just #123 but all of them do! Recommended!

Clean Rooms, nice people, awesome rates, great location...what more can one ask? My second time there, and I'll keep coming back! Just cross the street to the beach and plenty of stores and restaurants around. Johns Pass is a few blocks away.

As noted by other reviews, this place is not a 5-star hotel. It's a classic motel from times past. But luckily, alot of things have been updated.
First off, the staff is very friendly. Especially the owner (I forgot her name, but she was very nice). The rooms are clean and somewhat updated recently. It's nice having a kitchenette, so you can save some money on meals. TV's are nice and there's even WiFi!! Oh, more importantly for Florida. The AC units keep your room cool even in the heat of the day. The pool area looks like it's been recently updated. It was well kept and fairly large. There's a grill and several patio tables for guest use.
The beach is right across the street. One thing to keep in mind, it's a very wide beach, so it's a long walk to reach the water. But the beach is beautiful and it wasn't too crowded.
There are all kinds of great places within walking distance and a Waffle House right next door if you don't feel like cooking.
For the price you pay, this is a great place to stay and it won't break the bank. If you're expecting something super fancy though, you should go somewhere else and pay 5 to 10 times more!

Just got back from 10 nights at Satellite Motel. This hotel is great. All the rooms have a kitchenette and fridge, which can save you lots of money on food. It's right across the street from the beach and just a short distance from John's Pass Village. They also have a gas grill that is great to cook out on. Rooms are nice and kept clean and the owners are really nice. Also there is 2 small docks in back on the water that you can fish from and trust me you will catch fish there. Great place to stay and can't be beat for the price. Me and my boys are looking forward to our next vacation here.

We stay in the hotel every year with a large group and it is a very family friendly, clean, and a great place to stay. They treat us like family, and make sure everything is perfect for your stay! There are many stores and restraunts within walking distance and a snow cone place a few blocks away! Great for the kids (and adults too!)
