The hotel was very good and perfect for one of my friends who needed special care. The tiled floor and the high bed without boards was perfect for his wheelchair and the use of the Hoyer lift. The breakfast was also delicious.

I have been coming to this motel since 1992. I have stayed here over 10 times. It is one of my favorite places. It has changed hands and many updates have been done over the past couple of years. The staff is great. It is a bit pricy. But the beach is access is great. So close to downtown St.... More

Well, first, all the reviews about the extraordinary breakfasts are not wrong! It's very unique, and quite delicious! Second, the rooms are very clean, and nicely decorated. We went with our dogs, and it's true that there's no evidence of dog damage anywhere. Third, our second day turned into a tropical storm. The front desk was positive..."look at the marvel... More

Thank you so much! While we are sorry your stay was interrupted by a very unexpected storm, it sounds like you enjoyed a rare view of one of Mother Nature's 'tropical' events - and it can be an amazing sight. We are so glad that you enjoyed the hotel, the area, and of course... the breakfast! We will work hard... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with husband and infant. Great spot right on the water with kitchen and plenty of space. Really can't ask for more! Would definitely stay here again! The only down side was a dog that kept barking one night because it is pet friendly. But we have dogs so I also thought it was neat that... More

We loved our stay. Room was sufficient, great view, stayed on the third floor. Wonderful beach, dog friendly and relatively deserted once you walked north. Best of all is their pet policy...no size, pound limit on the size of your dog. The staff was extremely nice. The breakfast was fantastic. Everything made from scratch. Loved the laid back little beach... More

For Vilano beach, this is as good as it gets. That's not saying a lot. It's relatively clean, and on the beach. But the beach is not very attractive and the hotel is just average. The front desk staff are extremely unfriendly and rude. We asked for a half hour late check out so we could shower after coming from... More

Thank you for your comments. We do understand that folks want to linger a bit longer at the beach on a beautiful day! Late checkout is our most common request - and unfortunately, that means it is very difficult for us to do and still have our rooms cleaned and ready for the guests arriving that day. We apologize that... More
