Without a doubt, the most accommodating staff and owners we have had the pleasure of meeting in many of our travels..Friendly..we were treated like family. Super Clean..I love our little tables that were set up right outside our door. Beautifully kept grounds.. Barbecue, pool, coffee.. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE DOLPHIN MOTEL!

The location to the beach is a big plus for this motel. The room was spacious and it was convenient to park right in front of your unit. The owners were very friendly. There is a coin washer and dryer in the back that is convenient to do laundry. Great stay!

Mid July visit with my girlfriend. This motel was super clean and the staff was very nice. Location: It is roughly a three minute walk to the beach. While it stinks it's not on the beach for the money we saved it was worth it. If you stay here you will need a car. The only places in walking distance... More

we spent nearly five weeks in June 2015 in room 20 which has all what you need. Serge and his wife were very friendly. Every second day the room were cleaned perfectly. You have to walk only 100m to the big beautiful beach and to the next Publix it is only around 1/2 mile. It was very nice that you... More

Stayed here for 5 nights, the room was nice & clean & location was close to the beach. Sadly the experience was tainted by the unfriendly manner of the female manager. The cleaner was lovely & the male manager very friendly, but the female manager was very off hand & informed us on our last day that we could not... More

I had trouble believing how a place in this price range was getting such great reviews. I decided to listen to my fellow reviewers and give the Dolphin Motel a try. I could not have asked for a better stay! I stayed in an efficiency for 7 days that was equipped with both a stove and refrigerator. This location is... More

Stayed here for a week after being injured at another motel, I loved how this ma made me feel, like they really cared. In this day and age, these places are few and far between... REALLY like this place and recommend it.

One of the BEST values - in a room - I can remember! It was recommended by another Extreme Kayak Fisherman. It is very close to the Pompano Beach launch, and weigh-in. The room far exceeded our expectations!

The owners Serge and Alma make you feel very at home! The motel is across from the beach and about 10 mins walk from the main beach. All guests were super friendly. Facilities are great; nice pool, laundry if you need it. Close to restaurants. You can get a shuttle from MIA, and it's only 25 mins to FLL (with... More

Dolphin Motel is a cute accomodation in Pompano Beach, a very short walk from the beach (you basically just have to cross A1A). Rooms don't have that cookie-cutter design style of all these chain motels ... instead it's a house with some personality at very affordable rates. The motel has a nice outdoor sitting area and a pool and they... More
