wonderful place to stay, if you love wild beaches and simple, clean acomodations....the owners, Barry and Pat are very friendly and helpful, and did housekeeping every day....we had the efficiency, so we were able to cook in the kitchenette....well stocked, I might say, with dishes, utensils, and a nice full coffee pot...rooms were spotless, and we had an extra sheet...

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

We have stayed in Flagler Beach before and were looking to return. I was having a hard time finding something affordable. I happened upon this motel and read the reviews here. We decided to take the plunge because the reviews were good and the prices were affordable. This is NOT a fancy place. This is nothing like a chain. If... More

I spent a week in Flagler visiting friends that live there. Their guest room was full so I found a motel. This one was recommended to me by locals as clean and safe. The owners were great. The room was clean and I had no problems. Next time I would ask for a cottage as they are a bit farther... More

Small motel without much curb appeal. To be honest, if I hadn't already paid for it, I would have looked elsewhere. But I'm glad I stayed. The owners are friendly and my room was very clean. A little noisy from the street traffic but nothing objectionable. Couldn't get any closer to the beach (right across the street). Will stay again... More

We spent last week in a cottage at The Whale Watch Motel and couldn't be happier! The bed and its linens along with the towels were first class. The unit was very clean and comfortable and the service provided by the owners was terrific. My somewhat boisterous grandchildren were welcomed wholeheartedly. It was the most laid back restful vacation I... More
