My wife and I spent 2 nights here following a week cruise out of Fort Lauderdale (about a 30-40 min drive). We enjoyed it tremendously. Yes it is a "throw back" to another era in hospitality....the 50's or 60's perhaps. The owners clearly take great pride in their property. The rooms are not Marriott "slick" (others might say a bit dated), but they are very comfortable and clean and the location directly on the ocean cannot be beat, on a quieter stretch of Delray Beach. We took advantage of the kitchenette in our studio accommodation, went to nearby Public's and picked up some pre-made shishkabobs and grilled them on the common area gas grill...very relaxing and "old school".
We would definitely return again....hopefully next time for a longer visit! If you want a modern chain experience with all the bells and whistles perhaps this will not be your cup of tea. If looking for a relaxing change of pace with a comfortable family feeling this could be for you!
