We're not inform when we made reservations but half the rooms are condemned . Upon checking in saw debris by the curb then decided to explore finding rooms with locked doors and notices on the door. Our room was dingy and the floor uneven. Bathroom could not fit 2 people at once. To say something nice the mattress was firm... More

We apologize for the inconvenience that our major renovation we have currently pending at our location has caused you. If we are planning on having construction workers working during our guests stay, we do inform them, but if there is no work happening during a guests stay, we feel it shouldn't matter, as the renovations are not happening in a...

This was our third visit to one of our favorite places to stay. We even brought friends this time. I was totally shocked to find that the majority of rooms had been closed by the building department as being unsafe for occupancy. The building hangs over the water supported by pilings which need to be replaced. Only 4 rooms were... More

Larry, I am sorry to see that you felt that we were not upfront about our current renovation situation. We have been informed by all of the contractors as well as the state and county code enforcers that the building is safe for guests. If there were an issue we would be notified and at that point we would let... More

Bob and Diane and Martha are great hosts. They go the extra mile to ensure you are happy. If you want a resort with a pool and room service don't go here. However, if you want to watch mantes, porpoises, kayak, ospreys, fish and just chill. This would be the best. I love this place!!!

While staying in Matlacha wanted to check out this motel for a future trip. Because they had a "vacancy" sign out front we stopped in and politely asked if we could see a vacant room.

Nice place, very clean, owners on site. Very friendly folks, had a nice two night stay. Matlacha is all within a nice stroll. If you have kids and want to fish, and maybe see the dolphins cruising by, this is the place for you. Rooms have better amenities than some luxury hotels we have stayed in.

This is a quaint motel that sits over the water in Matlacha. The rooms are small but clean and nicely decorated, and the staff is very friendly. We sat outside in the evening and it was very quiet and relaxing. The shower is small, but plenty of hot water. We will definitely stay here again.
