We just spent a long weekend at the North Sunrise toward the end of Spring Break. The quiet location was perfect for us, near the beginning of the residential area on the North end of Mandalay; one short block from the beach and an easy walk to shopping, restaurants and nightlife.
We stayed in one of the two-room suites. It was clean and had plenty of space in the front room and bedroom. The kitchenette worked well for us. The bathroom was cramped and could use some shelves and more hooks. Plenty of hot water and pressure, though. The bedroom mattress is getting on in age. We slept well. And no carpeting...a big plus in Florida.
Overall, this is an awesome place. The central pool area is really quaint and beautifully landscaped with gardens and lots of good outdoor furniture and a grill. What really makes this place are the managers, Mark and Emory, who are oozing with Southern hospitality and love to interact with their guests. They're doing a great job restoring a Florida landmark. Also, it is very pet-friendly, as are the managers.
If you're looking for stainless steel appliances or costumed bellhops, then move right along. But if you want a reasonably priced motel at a great location just off the beach with old-school pastel Florida charm, then you've found a place to stay. We would definitely do it again.
