I found this hotel through tripadvisor after looking for something that was a balance of affordability and amenities. I couldn't have been happier with the choice. My friend was imagining herself living in the excellently laid out little efficiency. It would be a great place to stay with your small family for a week, with the kitchens in the units, the separated living room with convertible sofa bed, the walk-in closet, and the laundry there downstairs. The woman who checked us in took the time to notice we could be in a room closer to the ocean and moved us there. (#18). The only room closer (upstairs at least) was #19. We could see the beautiful UNCROWDED beach from both sides of the unit. I particularly noticed how clean the room was too. Sure, no pool, but who needs one when you are ON the beach? Highly recommend staying here.

This is a great place to enjoy the beach! The Inn is right on a secluded section of the beach away from all the busy resorts so the beach is not crowded. It is so easy to meet the other people at the Inn with great communal enhancements with the fantastic deck that sits right on the beach, the comfortable lounge chairs outside every room, the 3 grills to allow guests to grill out, the horse-shoe pits, the shelter area next to the grills, the camp-fire area on the beach, etc. This place is perfect to get away, sit out beneath the shooting stars on the deck and night and let the sound of the ocean wash away any stress.
I came down to view the launch of STS-128 and this was a fantastic spot to stay that was only slightly more expensive than staying at one of the discount places in Titusville. The Space Center is only a short drive away up A1A and over 3. For viewing the launch I got a ticket to view it from the NASA Causeway, which is as close as you can get. If you don't want to go to that hassle, you can see the shuttle sitting on the launch pad from A1A just west of Port Canaveral and there seemed to be quite a few public areas where you could pull off and park next to the water to see the launch. Or, you could just go out to the beach behind the hotel if you don't need a great view.
The rooms are not amazing, but for the price of the room, well worth the value. The rooms hav a sleeping area, living area with a couch and TV and a full kitchen area with a table anc chairs. It was very nice to be able to cook my own meals either in the kitchen or on the grill and not have to eat out for every meal during the week I was there. The room itself was basic and clean, exactly what I wanted. There is no maid service while there, but they will exchange linens and such for clean ones. So, this isn't a place that you are going to get pampered. The beach location with being able to walk out of my room and walk about 30 feet to the deck that sits on the ocean made this an amazing stay.

This place is the icing on the cake. After a wonderful Disney Cruise we relaxed a week on the beach. It is almost a private beach. A short walk from our comfrotable room. You can step out your room at night and herre the Atlantic Ocean, its awsome. The staff is great. We will be back next year. The whole family had a great time. Love the kitchen, it allowed us to save money cooking all week. The last night of our stay I went to the local fish market and we ate fresh seafood. What more can I say the place is great. P.S. don't let the reasonable price scare you, I would have actually paid more!

Great old style Florida motel right on the beach with nice court yard. Highly recommend it for this type of place, which is my preference over the big places.

Great location on Cocoa Beach. Motel has an Art Deco feel with an awesome courtyard. The staff prepared an awsome 4th of July barbecue. If you are looking for a place to relax steps from the beach this is your place!!!

Had a great time at the South Beach Inn. Room Clean, A/C frigid and staff friendly and helpful. From local fishing tips, to the best places for kayaking, to restaraunts that are dog friendly, they are always available to help. And to beach is wonderful. We will be back again and again.

Very Clean rooms and a wonderful open door policy with the management office. Friendly owners who frequent the property and interact with guests.
