Had stayed at this place for 45+ years- booked reservations in January - new owner as of March, 2016. Would not honor our standing reservations - found new and better accommodations just a few doors down. Doubling the prices does not make for a Luxury Resort. While we were at our new location we noticed only about 4 cars at... More

The complaint is with the room (1A), the website pictures are very misleading. It was TINY!!!! The bed was very hard, I woke up with a sore back every night. When we would turn the hot water on in the bathroom sink the pipes would start shaking hard. The sink also would not drain, we had to stick a steak... More

I'm sorry your room was not up to expectations. We do appreciate guests letting us know what needs to be fixed. We had the plumber here this week installing a new faucet in that bathroom, and a new drain in the sink. We are also in the midst of a remodel. This includes all new high quality mattresses, furniture and... More

I have been here many times. We live in Orlando. Try to go down once a month. One weekend my daughter caught 10 fish! I think this was the best kept secret. We even spent Thanksgiving here! Everyone I bring down loves it & we like that it is dog friendly!

Found it by accident 8 years ago and was glad to see it hasn't lost its quaint, nostalgic charm. Family friendly, away from all the hustle and bustle. My 2 year old granddaughter loved it! Will come back again.

This motel is very much like an old Florida motel. Rustic with an updated charm. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms have updated bathrooms. The boat docking does need major improvements

Thank you for leaving us feedback! Can you specify what part of the boat docking needs improving? We have boat slips and boat wells. These run along the edge of the property by way of a cement walkway. One area is a bit unlevel, but we will get to fixing that in time. We are always looking to improve. Again,... More
