A last minute decision to spend a couple of nights in the area brought us to the door of this motel since it advertises views of the water from every room.
It is a fun " Old Florida"place. There is a guest lounge next to the office,with good,fresh coffee each morning.We had # 109, which is a full apartment with living room,bedroom and kitchen, with huge sliding glass doors in both living and bedroom. It also has it's own patio,about 30 ft long. The walk to the beach is just the length of the building and is spectacular. What wasn't perfect: when sitting on our patio,our view was actually of the railing of the pool. Next time,I would request a second floor room.Also,our bedroom sported one single and one double (full) bed. Guess we are too used to a queen or king.
BTW, Phil,the caretaker is a wealth of local knowledge and can direct you to great restaurants.
