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...

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...

I found Dolphin Motel a very good choice in Pompano Beach. The motel is clean, very near the beach (you can go by foot), even the chapeast room has a refrigerator, toaster, forks, plates, cups, glasses, everything that you need. The wifi works nicely, there are parking spots in front of the motel and Alma, Serge and Elizabeth are very...

I spent time in the apartment with the balcony. The apartment was immaculate and the balcony was refreshing. I love this place. I have a second business trip coming up and unfortunately the apartment was not available so I chose the Large Efficiency Room. I look forward to my stay.

We obviously like the dolphin as we have stayed here every year for 15 years. It is neat, clean and conveniently located across the street from the beach and near shopping. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Love our dolphin vacation

We had some friends from Georgia staying in Pompano for a week at the Wyndham Sea Gardens. We live in Florida and wanted to drive over for a 1 night-2 day visit with them. The Wyndham had a 2 night minimum and was over $200/night so my wife and 15 yr old son booked the Dolphin Motel next door. It...

We stayed at the Dolphin Motel for two nights and three days while participating in a off-shore kayak fishing tournament. The location of the motel in relation to the pier was very close. The hotel is an older one, however the rooms were refurbished quite well and immaculate. The staff was comprised of a husband and wife with two young...
