know first that this is just a typical motel squeezed into a very small area near the beach .It has a great view ,but quite a walk to the beach.Though it is located On the beach you will have to bring your own chairs as there are no chairs provided and you are forbidden to take the motel chairs to the beach.So if you can spend the day ,on your towel ,on the ground,you are good to go .Otherwise plan to spend the day looking at the water from quite a distance.Lovey .small pool .warm and inviting.Rooms are large and clean.Parking lot is painfully small and difficult to pull in and out of .

Nice old fashioned inn. Very quiet, not a place to bring kids. room was clean, staff was very nice. Nothing fancy, great uncrowded beach. The restaurants across the street are good but expensive, need to drive into town for more affordable restaurants

Not the fanciest place in the world, but certainly one of the cleanest.
The staff clearly that great pride in this accommodation .
The view from the room we stayed in ( 130 ) was great and we never heard any noise during our stay.
Good location in town with some great places to eat right across the road.
On chatting to some of the other residents it is evident that they come year after year......you best be quick if you want to stay here.

Room Tip: Rooms 130 and 131 are the best

I was pleased with our decision to stay at the Aquarius last week. The room was large with a complete kitchen. The pool was warm and the beach was wide and not too busy. A basket of free snacks was on the table. If you're looking for excitement, this is not your kind of place. At 48 I was by far the youngest there, but we enjoyed the slow and friendly pace. It is perhaps a little older and could use some updates - rust on the bathtub, for example - but then it wouldn't be as affordable.

Spent two nights, a family of 4 adults, at this small beach front motel with resort features. We found personal attention unlike any we have experienced in many years. The 2 br unit was clean and well furnished as were the grounds. The beach was very good and nice to view from the grounds. I would recommend it if you would like a quiet stay. It might not be the best choice for active young children. It seems to have a lot of long term repeat guest. I may well become one of them. The only Con would be the tight parking as it is somewhat difficult to back when the lot is near capacity.

Room Tip: If ocean view from your room is important, the choice is obvious. If not available or beyond your b...

My girlfriend and I needed a new place to stay for our annual trip to FL this year - and chose the Aquarius. The motel is older but very well kept up and very clean. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The beach is close and secluded. We stayed in a second floor efficiency with a balcony that overlooked the beach and ocean (which is a prerequisite of ours). How great it was to sit there and watch and hear the ocean - not to mention the sunrises. It was heaven!!! We also were above a deck area where other guests gathered and loudly partied and smoked cigars and cigarettes - the smell of which was nauseating. We landed up having to close our window and balcony door to keep the smell from drifting in. It also would have been a nice consideration if we had been told about the "no see um" bugs down there - warned to bring bug repellent. By the time I left I had several areas of annoying itchy bites - and even after coming home I've kept breaking out in itchy rashes caused by these bugs that have resulted in miserable sleepless nights. (There are non-itching projects to help). I'm home 4 days now and finally think the worse is over. This, of course, is not the manager's fault - but a warning would have been nice at check in to prepare us. Nevertheless it is a very nice and calming place worthy of someone looking for peace and quiet.

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony overlooking the beach are wonderful - but also overlook the deck and "part...
