Spent a lot of time in similarly priced accommodation accross Florida and this place really stands out.
The rooms are well appointed and very clean, the wifi, parking and provision of bikes etc are fantastic and there is a really nice feel to the communal areas.
A very enjoyable and relaxing stay only steps from the beach, the adjoining mexican restaurant is also really tasty.
The only thing I would change would be having safes in the rooms,it never felt unsafe etc,but it's nice to have somewhere to put your passports and other unused valuables during your stay.

This place was great for the price. It was almost like camping by the beach, in a good way. When we first arrived, I wasn't sure what to expect. Suprisingly, the room was bigger than I thought. The queen bed was in a separate room from the kids' bunk beds. The "kitchen" was quite small, but it worked. Was perfectly fine for snacks and breakfast etc. Overall the room was ok. It's definitely not a 5 star hotel, but you're on vacation and it's not like you're there to sit in the room. It was a clean place to rest our heads and shower. The floors felt like they could've been swept and cleaned alittle better, but we were in and out with flip flops on constantly, so it didn't bother us too much. It is literally about a 1 minute walk to the boardwalk and beach. I was also suprised to find out when we arrived, that not only did they have surfboards and bikes for hotel use, they had beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, sand toys and boogie boards as well. But get to front desk early in am, otherwise you will miss out on that opportunity. There is also a $10 a day charge for parking. I was not told this when I checked in and they did waive this fee when I checked out. Also, there is 24 hr parking across the street for $5/day. So make sure you are told about parking charges. There are no safes in the room, so I wouldn't recommend bringing too much cash. As far as the boardwalk, we had an absolute blast. Was such an inexpensive vacation with the kids and would definitely do it again!

I was really impressed with the price and location to the beach. The room was clean, well appointed and large for one person - small table and chairs, queen bed, and sofa. I loved the bath tiles and convenient shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispenser in the shower. The staff was very friendly. I regret that I didn't have a chance to take advantage of the free bike and beach chair usage, or the coupon at the restaurant (which I thought was very pretty). I was also happy with the t.v. and internet access. If I go back to the area, I will probably stay here, rather than spend more for a name brand hotel location.

This place is absolutely amazing! The staff that works there is super helpful and made me and my husband feel at home. They have so many free things you can use such as: beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. You can definitely tell that their housekeepers have had the proper training because they left those room spotless! I recommend this hotel to ANYONE and EVERYONE!

We were not furnished with the "family room" ("the more the merrier") room we had booked (advertised on booking.com as having one Queen bed and two sets of bunk beds). Instead we were furnished a tiny room with one Queen bed and two day beds (hard plastic sofa, the back of which folded down, on which one adult could sleep. albeit quite uncomfortably. The clerk apparenty never passed our complaint to the manager or, if he did, the manager never responded. Our room (either G-2 or G-3, I can't recall) was located in what appeared to be the older original building, in which the office was located. In fairness, there were 5 or 6 newer buildings which, perhaps, had better rooms. Advertised "kitchenette" is not what you'd think: it is tiny, dorm room-size refrigerator, a coffee maker and a microwave, but no stove or hot plate. The free bikes were in abysmal condition (both had almost flat tires; one bike had a severly bent back rim(. We checked out after the second of five scheduled nights, and found a much better room, for significant less $, at a beachfron (boardwalk) motel. It is very hard to understand the high ratings of this facility. We would not stay here again, under any circumstances.

Room Tip: Not G-2 or G3.

RandyW19,

It seems as the third party you booked threw must have reserved the wrong room. We would have urge you to give us a chance to resolve this issue but finding a significantly less room on the boardwalk may have been to you liking. We do hope in the future you do reconsider staying with us.

Thank you,

3 of us stayed here over New Years and had a great experience. The room was spacious and clean, and a great price compared to other places around! It was nice to have a microwave, fridge and table/chairs in the room. It was less than 2 blocks to get to the beach/ boardwalk. They had a full kitchen in the lobby that anyone could use and free rentals of beach chairs, bicycles, etc. We stayed here thinking we would meet some travelers, but there weren't many staying there at the time (or at least that we saw). The Taco Shack next door is AMAZING!!! We did have an issue with hot water in the shower...but regardless would definitely go back.

MSUdancer18,

It is always great to hear our guest enjoy all of our "FREEBIES". It is our pleasure to provide these amenities to our guest. As we do provide kitchens for our guest most of them feel the same way about our TACO BEACH SHACK....AMAZING...And cant get enough. We look forward to having you again.
