We stayed in an efficiency room at the Whale Watch Motel for four nights near the end of May and had a great time. We were very happy to find a nice place that would let us stay with our two small dogs. I am writing this review since we just happened to find the motel while searching online and our decision to stay there was largely based on the reviews that we read here.
Our room was clean and equipped with a complete set of kitchen appliances in good working order. Ample dishes, silverware, etc. were also provided. Furnishings included a comfortable king-sized bed, futon, and kitchen table with two chairs. Fast wireless internet access was provided by several access points spread around the property. The bathroom was equipped with a nice, large shower. However, there was no tub.
The beach access is just across the A1A from the motel. The beach itself was very nice and not at all crowded. There were rarely more than five or six other people anywhere near us. Often, we had the entire place to ourselves. We saw dolphins, pelicans, and ospreys every day.
Most of the guests appeared to be couples or families, many of them with pets. We did not encounter anyone that was loud or unruly.
Overall, we thought this was a great place to stay with our dogs. The owners are very laid back and do not object to pets being left in the rooms unattended. This is not a fancy hotel, but it is clean and reasonably priced. We definitely plan to return.
