“Great place for the money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

I stayed the weekend at Beachside Motel. It was very clean. It is an old style Florida hotel which I really liked. Quiet property with clean pool, easy access to the beach and decent rooms. It had more than I expected. In addition to the 2 double beds there was a small table with 2 chairs, kitchenette with frig and freeze, microwave and dishes.

I would go back.

Room Tip: One of the rooms on the end with a view would have been nice.

Beachside is a charming older motel. Great beach access and wonderful views of the ocean from our room. Be sure to get up and watch the sunrise. Rooms are older but clean and staff is friendly. Nice pool and restaurants within walking distance. Sorry we only had one night to spend there...will be back!

Real keys for the room doors (when's the last time you saw that?); front desk closes down for the night; "patio" is two plastic chairs in the walkway between rooms, but we loved it. Average-sized rooms; ocean view; clean, comfortable; friendly helpful staff; cheap TV in the regular rooms (the "penthouse" had a nice flat screen); Nice pool; pretty short distance from the water.

We returned late from brunch and checked out an hour and a half late. They let us off w/out any extra charge (Thank you!)

Would definitely stay again, maybe this summer.

On the beach and in the middle of the island. Old school motel with lots of trucks in the parking lot. Very convient to everything. Staff very friendly. Efficiency room larger than expected. I imagine the rooms on the second floor are quieter than the first floor.

We were looking for a simple place to stay with our family for a short trip to the beach with no deposits or cleaning fees. The staff was friendly and our room was clean. The motel is old, and could use some updating, but it served the purpose that we needed. Our bed was comfortable and our room did not smell. We practically had the whole place to ourselves, but don't expect any complimentary upgrades. The pool looked nice and the beach was great. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Basic, on the water, great service. Nothing fancy, but everything worked. Arrived in the middle of the night. Manager left room door open for me so I could register the next morning. Ample parking. Swimming pool. Coffee maker, ironing board, iron, shampoo, soap, etc. in the room. Wish I had steyed longer, but business plans took me elsewhere. Great local dining recommendation.

I loved this place and I will go back. VERY VERY clean. We had a kitchenett on front of building facing water. Woke to gorgeous sunrise each morning. I mean ya couldnt see maybe the sandy beach but OCEAN VIEW, FANTASTIC! I mean water every where. Path to beach great and I am handicapped and have to use hiking stick. Kitchen was great with all things we needed. STAFF was more than helpful especially first night Jean helped me with maps and such, thanks Jean. Talked with manager she was very nice too. ALL IN all I will be back next DEC. LOVED IT....no complaitns here. We stayed 3 days and had to leave early and was refunded the last day (day 4) we couldnt stay with no problems.
