“Great Get away”
Reviewed March 6, 2008

My husband and I stayed here for an impromptu couple of days at the beach. The owners were wonderful! Very friendly and polite. The room was cute. Nice clean bedding and the furniture was marvelous. The room had a nice cozy kitchen and bathroom. It was absolutely perfect for our get away. They even were welcoming to my dog. They made sure we knew the pet laws in the area and where we could walk him. We are planning on making this Hotel a regular vacation spot for years to come. The owners made this a great first experience to the Island for my Husband an warm home comming to me.

Oh, what a night!
As we entered the room it was as though we entered the Twilight Zone......there was a fowl odor and the floors were dirty....as we turned the sheets down we found, to our dismay, that our sheets had NOT been changed.........I won't go into any details....we put a blanket that we used for the beach on top and would not sleep under the covers. As we laid down we found NO BOX SPRINGS!!!!! Yes, it is true NONE!!! we slept on an old mattress on top of a piece of plywood......there was dog food, I hope, on the floor, and hardly any light.......they were frantically putting up digusting Halloween decorations. As far as I am concerned they should have invested their time in the Hotel instead of the extra bloody walking dead statues. This delapidated establishment has much potential. The only nice feature that it was in walking distance to the beach.
I would never stay there again.....it would be good for dogs.....well, maybe not because of the fleas.......
Sorry....the truth needs to be told.....

  • Liked — Location to the beach
  • Disliked — dirty sheets....smell......dirty floor......no box springs/plywood......fleas.....unfriendly...extremely overpriced

I have been going to the island for years and I've never stayed anywhere that was so personable. The owners are very lovely and you feel as if you are staying in their home. They even have a potluck on saturdays!!!
The rooms are very well decorated and very clean. They all have small kitchens. The beach is a one minute walk. It's a lovely place and it's so popular that it's tough to find an opening. The pool is great if you don't feel like going to the beach. It's really my favorite place to stay. When you meet the owners you will feel like they are your lifetime friends.

Everytime we come to Anna Maria we stay at Haley's! It's charming, quaint and quirky...just like the island! Only a short walk to the beach and you can hardly get closer. The condos are about that far off the beach anyway! Year after year we have clean rooms and excellent hospitality. If you ever need a suggestion for a place to eat or for something to do, you only need ask Sabine or Tom, our gracious hosts! We've never had a problem at Haley's and unless you bring your problems with you, you won't have problems either! D.Dens4d.

  • Liked — The hospitality, it's quaint and close to a great beach
  • Disliked — Better cable TV but there's probably not anything they can do about that and besides you won't be in the room that much!

In 1994 Delta offered round trips to Tampa for $89. I walked into a local bookstore, picked out a Florida guide and opened it to Haleys. I've gone back to Haleys for a week every year since--I wouldn't stay anywhere else. I've been there for a week in Jan, Feb, March and April, weather is always fine. Charming old Florida rooms and so close to the beach, the little car room signs, the flamingos. Bikes, beach chairs, the Sandbar and the fishing pier, dolphins. Haleys is wonderfully centrally located for beach time, inexpensive, welcoming. Real island feel, a place to go if you need a vacation! Their beach view is my laptop screensaver. We're booked for early april, can't wait.

  • Liked — new wifi available everywhere (we used to have to go around the side of the motel)
  • Disliked — absolutely uncritical about it, sorry

If you like old furniture from garage sales that is moldy to boot, this is the place for you. Flea infested rooms, rude hosts, I could go on. We paid for a week stay,but after 3 days of bug infestation we moved to another place on the island.
My advice, find another place!

We booked this motel back in March for our 10th anniversary in September. When we left, I actually cried because we were leaving a bit of paradise. Sabine and Tom are gracious, friendly, hardworking owners who want only the best for each guest. They work long hours each day to upgrade each unit and it shows with each renovation. Guests need to remember that this motel is 50+ years old and it's a throw-back to earlier times.So many innovative ideas have been added like the pool room and the gardens and so much more.Tom upgraded us to a bigger room at no additional cost since our first room had a slight plumbing issue. Please don't be quick to discount this motel because of its age. Give this vintage bit of paradise a try and step back to a time over 50 years ago when Florida was a less populated, more laid back and a friendly place to visit. Don't go expecting anything and revel in what you find. It's paradise and its owners are wonderful. If your want one of those large chain motel rooms, fine, but , you are missing out on a special type of place that is fast disappearing in our state. By the way, our dogs loved it too!
