“Best place to stay to enjoy AMI”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

This was our second stay at Haley's. We can't wait to go back. Anna Maria is so beautiful and Haley's lets you enjoy it to the fullest. We aren't "big hotel" type people. Haley's is old Florida quaint but the rooms are modern and beautifully upgraded. The owners make you feel welcome and provide everything you need to enjoy your stay. Don't be bothered by the reviews that say it's far from the beach because it's just a short walk. Guess what, there aren't any hotels right on the beach on AMI! That's what makes it great. Just load up a beach buggy provided by Haley's at no charge with all their hotel-provided gear. The rates are reasonable for what you get. The owners, Tom and Carol, are wonderful and so is their hotel.

I had previously visited Anna Maria Island and was determined to find a way to stay on the island next visit! When we planned our vacation this time, we searched and searched for a deal on the island, and we finally found a great one at Haley's! We just booked a small motel room (#2) for the two of us, but, thanks to the gracious owners, we ended up staying in #10, which was 1/2 of a duplex cottage. AMAZING! The rooms were cute, clean, and you could tell that they put lots of effort into making it absolutely inviting for us.
There is a screened in shared porch with tables and chairs so you can relax without bugs bothering you. The front room included a sofa-bed love seat, wall-mounted tv, end table, extra eating trays, a round kitchen table with 4 chairs, full fridge with ice already made and bottles of water, a full size stove and oven, sink, counter space, coffee maker with complimentary coffee, sugar, and creamer, microwave, toaster, and cabinets fully stocked for all your cooking needs. The separate bedroom was a great size and was decorated wonderfully. It had a large comfortable bed with clean, fresh-smelling bedding and blankets, and lots of fluffy pillows. There is an end table with lamp on either side of the bed, and the room has a closet as well as a large dresser with mirror and a magnifying make-up mirror as well.
The bathroom was small (as stated plainly on the website) but very clean, well-maintained, and functional for the average-sized person. The water pressure and temperature in the stall shower was perfect. There is a small shelf above the sink to store your toiletries, and the motel provided soaps, facial wipes, shampoo/conditioner, and lotion. They also provided lots of towels which were large, soft, and of very good quality ... definitely NOT your typical cheap motel towels.
We were only there 3 days. We checked in on Tues afternoon and checked out on Friday morning. Thursday morning, motel staff checked to see what we needed. She delivered all fresh towels and washcloths, restocked the coffee, removed used towels, etc, and emptied our trash. The only thing we asked her for was more towels, but she went above and beyond to take care of us!
The side of the motel is on a short dead-end residential street. Just a short walk up that block and you are crossing the dunes to the gulf of Mexico and a beautiful quiet beach! Haley's provided all of our beach needs including a cart to easily pull the beach chairs, umbrella, etc. They even had beach towels, toys, and lotion for the guests to use!
The owners were friendly and helpful. When we checked in, they gave us an island map and showed us where many of the great sites, restaurants, cafes, etc. are on the island. Having only visited the island once before, I wouldn't have even known some of these places were here had it not been for the owner's suggestions. Haley's really helped to make this the perfect island vacation!
Thank you for a wonderful 3 days at Haley's!!

Room Tip: One of the only negatives that I can tell you about is that in this cottage (#10), there is only a t...

Cute clean, nicely decorated, rooms among the gardens. Close to the beach. Nice pool was very clean. Motel offered free beach items. Friendly helpful staff. Anna Maria is a beautiful beach town. Pier on the north end of island has a over the water restaurant. I will stay here again.

After searching many travel sites I finally found this hotel listed. I was not sure what to expect since I had not heard of the motel before. My rate was fantastic and so was the motel room. The décor was extremely nice, the room very clean and the location was great. It was approx. 1 block from motel. The property supplied all the items you and your family would need for the beach, and at no cost. The property's owner and other employees were very friendly!!! I recommend this motel for any couple or family.

Room Tip: My 'motel' room was great for a couple, but not big enough for a family of 3 or more. Check...

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?
