Stayed here only 1 night, but loved the location(only a block from the beach!) our room was clean and tidy. Had a kitchenette. Would be great for a longer stay! Cute pool and patio area with tables, chairs, and even a bbq grill. Owner was very nice and hospitable. Signage is a little small, making it a little hard to... More

We were the first into just renovated unit 4. Beautiful tiled floor with a full refrigerator, stove, microwave, coffee maker, and cooking utensils. A heated pool and the motel on a side street of the A1A provides a quiet place to relax. Sam helps with anything you seek, making the restaurant reservation for us after discussing options and settling on... More

The floors were really dirty when we arrived. My husband wears white socks and they were black from walking in our room. I will say the bed and pillows are very comfortable and the little kitchen was very handy. The bathroom has what has to be the smallest toilet I have ever used. They use way too much fabric softener... More

Great staff! Friendly environment and very clean rooms, the pool, and a BBQ area. I accidentally booked a room with one bed and there were 4 of us; my 2 kids and a wifey. The gentleman at the front desk wanted to put us in the room with two beds, but all the rooms were booked. He offered to go... More

While the owner was very nice, the room we had just did not measure up to another nights stay. The place is being worked on and I would say it's just not complete yet. There was no dresser or nightstand to better organize our things. The bathroom was "just renovated" but the window was broken. The room had a smell... More

This motel is awesome. Newly remodeled rooms featuring an oven, stove, refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. 2 large closets to store your clothes, and a comfy bed. Not to mention a flat screen with direct tv, free wifi, and 24/7 pool with a gas grill! The owner Sam is extremely nice. If I ever end up back in Pompano beach... More
