I am so happy we found the Whale Watch! We spent a few days there and can't wait to go back and do it again. The owners were so accommodating. I wanted my husband to get the Florida experience that I had when I was growing up. The Whale Watch provided this and more. Our room was clean and comfortable.... More

A year ago we spent $1800 to stay one week at the Hilton in Melbourne. It was beautiful but actually we spent very little time in the room. Thiss year we stayed at the Whale Watch. Obviously the comparisons are few if you want luxury in your room. However if you like your host to personally stop by each day... More

Perfect little spot. Looks right over the beach. The owners, Barry and Patricia bend over backwards to make your stay perfect. Our second time staying there. Could it ask for a better vacation with our golden retriever!

We stayed in one of the cottages and we found it quite comfotable. We called the night before we arrived just to check on the size of the coffee pot. Those little 2 cup pots just wouldn't cut it for us. We were assured the kitchens were fully equipped with a full size 12 cup coffee maker. There were filters... More

I have now stayed twice here. I find it very relaxing. Place is not fancy nor is it like a chain type hotel/motel.It is a motel that was built around 1950. It is run by a very nice couple who also live there. It is pet friendly which is a plus for me because I travel with pets. I always... More

We drove all the way from New Jersey. The owner told us they strived on old Florida vibe and cleanliness. Well.....It's def old Florida and not as clean as they say. Pics do not do depict the place. Will never return and hope you don't make the mistake staying here.

You arrived at 9:15 AM on your check-in date. This is 6 hours before check-in time. This is almost two hours before "Check-out time". We rush cleaned the room so you (wife and baby) could get in the room and not stay in the car. How come everytime we make exceptions, we get bit. You had multiple nights booked, you... More
