My husband and I stayed here two years ago...we would have stayed this past year but wanted to try another Hotel. We loved our stay there...Wonderful free breakfast every morning..you're a stone throw away from the Beach! Walking distance to the wonderful little shops, FANTASTIC restaurants and if you like to fish right near the pier! They have a terrific swimming pool thats great to lay out and still have the view of the Gulf!! Would love to go back again!

Beautiful beach, amazing view from the balcony, full size fridge, range top, incredible free breakfast! We stayed only one night during a college tour trip, but will definitely go back for a longer stay. We were able to walk along the beach to the little shops and restaurants of times square and the pier. Mainstream shops (target) and restaurants were a short drive away. Amazing experience!

One of the best attributes to this place in indeed the location. Far enough away from Times Square, yet an easy walk. The North end of FMB is allways perfect. Less traffic, quiet and clean. The check in was easy and I was pleased to see as we entered the room a kiitchenette with a FULL size fridge!!! The room was clean and well appointed. The bed was a tad uncomfortable... you could feel it in the morning!! The other really nice thing was the complimentary breakfast in the morning. Not just a muffin and coffee but make your own waffle, fruits, cereal and hard boiled eggs and an assortment of breakfast sandwiches. I think it was one of the nicest "free" breakfasts I have seen. All the rooms are right on the beachso the view is perfect. You might want to ask for an upper roon because there are a line of palms that would give an more "peek-a-boo" view of the ocean, but it provides nice privacy. I the pool if very clean and right on the beach. I doubt if anyone would think this place is a flop.

Thank you for the wonderful review. It is always nice to see that our guests enjoyed their stay with us. The North end of the Island is perfect, you can enjoy our peace and quiet or you can walk down to all of the action at Times Square. The Palm trees just got their yearly hair cut so the view is better.

Just stayed 4 nights here.Sept 6-10, visiting family. Excellent place, no negatives at all! Room was very clean, location is awesome, staff is very friendly and helpful.Balcony overlooking the beach. The kitchenette was good to have. Get up in the am, make coffee, nuke a breakfast sandwich.Fridge for a six pack. Maybe a quarter mile walk to "time square", where the restaurants and shops are. Will definately stay here again, and look forward to it. Stay here , you won't be sorry, I value these travelers ratings when planning a trip, so I wouldn't mislead you. You'll like it.

Room Tip: Had room 415, there are 5 floors. The upper floors have a better view of the beach and ocean.

......it's got everything. Beach front, lovely rooms with kitchenette, great self serve breakfast, friendly staff, excellent housekeeping staff, great location and in a really good seaside town with lots of good restaurants and shops etc. only a 5 minute walk down the beach. Very few (if any) Brits and a real taste of gulf coast beach life with fantastic sunsets - you really can't go wrong here.

Room Tip: They're all good but if you have a ground floor then make sure it's one with access to the gardens and not behind the pool.
