Like another reviewer mentioned, I don't understand the favorable reviews of this hotel at all! Anyway…this was the most awful motel. Where do I begin? The room looked like it hadn't been updated since the 60's. It was used and abused for generations and showed every bit of the wear and tear. It smelled funny, the carpet was unbelievably filthy (while I never allowed my bare feet to touch it, my husband did, and when he got into the shower the water ran black), the tv didn't work properly and the remote was so worn out that the batteries fell out of it every time I picked it up. The worst thing were the beds. Hard as a rock, the mattress pad was hard & crinkly, the cheapest linens you can imagine, the blankets looked as though they had been around since the Civil War. I literally could not sleep. While I almost hesitate to say this, I must tell you that my husband woke up with bites around his ankles and arms. We didn't swim (too cold), so it wasn't anything from the beach/water. Flagler Beach is a wonderful area that maintains the "old-Florida" feel apparently due in part to their restrictive policy against new construction. That being said, I can't understand why they won't allow a decent new hotel to be built. This motel's only positive is it's location on A1A, which runs adjacent to the shoreline. Therefore, you literally walk across the 2-lane road to the beach. I figure that is why people stay there. A total emergency renovation is in order here. In an interesting irony, the restaurant (Blue) looked quite fancy and was fairly high-priced. A very stark contrast. The pool looked OK, but it was too cold during our stay to swim. The location is great - what a shame this isn't a cleaner, nicer place.
