“Great Motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Stayed here on a driving holiday in Florida, good location with a short walk to the beach and on the free bus route that tours Anna Maria Island. The welcome was lovely and the room we had with a King and en-suite had a nice beach feel and was a real sun trap on the balcony.

Lots of reviews on this Motel and resort. It is on the northern end of Anna Maria Island. It is unique and quaint. One of the things that really impressed us is that almost every available inch of outdoors has foliage of some kind. It is obvious that it has been developed over the years. Yes the bathrooms are small, but hey, how often do you get to use the toilet and brush your teeth in the sink at the same time. Has the old tile and the shower works fine. We stayed in unit #2 and found it charming. A queen bed, mounted wall tv, refrigerator, toaster, microwave, sink, dishes, etc. An easy walk to the beach. You do not have to cross a street, but walk to the end of the road beside the Motel and through some foliage and there you are on the Gulf. You can use of their beach wagons and put in your chairs, some towels, even an umbrella if you want it and off you go. Not more than 5 minutes and you are there watching the beautiful sunset. The office is open from 9:30 til around 5, but in case of an emergency there is an outside phone to call. Nice size pool with even a shelter to enjoy the pool and read a book or sit on a lounge and enjoy the sun.
If you want a lot of motel room this is not your place. If you want a nice unique stay on a beautiful island it is a special place.

Room Tip: #2 is small but a nice room if you do not plan to spend a lot of time in the room. Why would you?

Just stayed one night in room 11a. Lovely room, quite possibly the best room we have stayed in during our visits to America. Room was beautifully laid out, with a lot of thought put into decoration and layout. The bathroom was well laid out and spacious enough and very functional. There are chairs and a sunbed just outside the front of the room, which us great as it is a little sun trap so great for relaxing. Our room did not gave a kitchenette, we didn't want or need one, amenities are close by with a trolley running every 10 minutes or so round the island or you can drive and parking with plenty of parking available. The beach is a short walk and is a quiet beach with not many people around which is ideal.

Stayed at this motel again...room 8. Other reviewers have commented on the small bathrooms, and for sure, they are tiny....but expected in these old cottages. The rooms are spotless, smell fresh and linens like they were put on an hour before you checked in. Really cute and comfortable...pricing is consistent or lower than other motels in the area.

Very nice folks and they have everything there you'll need for a day at the beach. You are at the end of the block gulf side, so you are an easy walk to the water.

Room Tip: Beds and linens are awesome....always sleep great at this place! I was in room 8 which is next to t...

Stayed in room 5 . Bathroom is so small it's hard to even close the door and it had an awful smell like some bad bleach. Beach is a long walk. This place is way overpriced for what the rooms are like. Pictures are very deceiving.

We are sorry you had some issues during your stay.
Our bathrooms are small, but fully functional but cannot be enlarged in a 50 year old building.
The beach is about a 100 yard walk down a dead end street as it states on our website where all the pictures of the rooms and area are current. We furnish free carts, chairs, umbrellas and beach towels to all our guests.
Our rates are comparable to every other similar island motel and we are always sold out 99% in the time period you choose – so pricing is realistic.
If you had brought the odor issue or of your others at the time of your stay, we would have done everything possible to address them and make your stay more pleasant.
Thank you.
