“Great staff, location & price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

I write very few reviews, but felt lead to comment on this stay. The owners were wonderful, even to the extent of helping print out luggage tags for our following cruise. Most of the rooms open up on the recently beautifuly redone pool area, you are only a few steps from a great beach location, and they even provide beach towels. Lots of activities available a short walk up the beach & fun eating spots close by. Great location, affordable prices, nice room & people. We plan on returning.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment with the great gulf views. This room had plenty of space and everything we needed. The owners are awesome. Their biggest concern is the happiness and comfort of their guests. The beach is only steps from the property and is uncrowded, quiet, and relaxing. The decor of the motel is a bit dated but everything is extremely clean and in good working order. We will definitely stay here again and tell all our friends about it.

Very nice room and beds, clean, friendly people, a bit dated but we liked it very much to stay here. Coffee (free) you can pick up in the morning, no breakfast facilities, small swimming pool and beach very close. Walk on the beach just before high tide and discover al the different kinds of shelfish, beautiful!

We spent the weekend what a pleasant experience. The hotel has a 60's 70's vibe and we loved it. It is close to the beach within walking distance. Our room was sparkling clean and very comfy.
with a big screen tv to enjoy. The pool was right outside our room. The owner went out of her way to tend to our every need including coffee in the mornings on the patio. We will be back we can't wait.

Lets not get crazy with these reviews, the hotel class is 2.5 stars for a reason. It is on the beach but you have no view of the beach. Your best view, if you are lucky, would be of the main road. There are no amenities on the beach.
The pool is small and the rooms are dated, the only thing from this decade is the LCD TV.

Pro: It is cheap. It is on the beach. Free parking. Owners are nice. It is clean. Mini fridge and microwave. It was quiet.

Con: No view. Nothing up to date. Virtually no amenities. Just a place to sleep with a bit of a musty smell.

There are two breakfast places within a short walk, Heavenly Biscuit is a bit north and the Seagrape Plaza to the south. Didn't do the Heavenly Biscuit but ate at the pancake place in Seagrape Plaza. Good chinese Food at Lins Garden maybe quarter mile south.

Very clean and simple motel with an extremely helpful owner. Its location was perfect and the pool was just perfect to cool off & relax after a long day at the beach. Very fun old-FL 50's/60's vibe. I would definitely stay again!
