The location of this hotel is great. It is located on the intracoastal and backs up to docks which are perfect for fishing. The beach is directly across the street. The pool are is very nice, they appeared to have it redone recently. The staff was very accommodating. The rooms are very dated though. All in all it was fine.... More

My husband and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary for a nice long weekend! Front porch was covered in sand and dirt when we arrived. Poor curb appeal. Room was of course outdated, draws and the handles on them were broken. Toilet wouldn't flush. Water dripping in the bathroom sink the whole time because you couldn't get it to shut... More

My Husband and I, spent our Anniversary at A place to be. It was everything and more that we expected! Quiet, and absolutely breathtaking. If there was construction going on, we heard no evidence of it at all. So laid back, it was difficult to leave. I'm counting the days till we return. And becoming regulars at such a humbling...

We stayed here for three nights and got exactly what we wanted - some peace and solitude. The beach is a 1 Min walk away. It's a really quiet part of the beach. If you want some excitement just walk up north for 5 min though ;-) We had a great view from our room and sat directly at the... More

Did not know they were remodeling. Still, not a reason for the rooms to be dirty and disgusting. Very few linens, terrible quality bed linens/pillows. Sand is sofa, fingerprints all over bathroom mirrors, drawers dirty with very few utensils, slider door had to be opened a certain way with key or it didn't work. Thank goodness my husband and brother-in-law... More

First off, yes they are remodeling so the terribly dirty outdated rooms will get better but there are just some odd things about this place. My daughter and I stayed here one night and check in time is after 3pm when all the staff are gone (they are there 9am-3pm). When I booked online I booked a room with 2... More

This place was absolutely disgusting. There were bugs in our kitchen and bathroom, blood on our comforter, broken blinds, the carpeting was very filthy and stained all over the place, the bed must be at least 30 years old, and dirty dirty stains on the box spring.

This motel has the potential to be a wonderful place to be, but is lacking any attention to detail . Our outside area was awful and even dangerous with a completely broken chair and the only other one cracked. The apartment was very spacious, but the beds, linens, and pillows were terrible. I asked for another pillow and was given... More
