Reviewed February 1, 2014

The Shore Haven is a terrific value for the money. Fastidiously clean, thoughtfully operated, attended by friendly, capable and honest long-time housekeeping employees, well located, and with the rooms surrounding a very inviting pool. (Two, actually, depending on the courtyard by which your room is located.) The owner is a real mensch -- serious about his business, always available, and very responsive to any concerns. A bonus: the resort is located a very short walk from the inviting two-block retail and restaurant strip down to the water that is the focus and pleasure of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. That's walking south; walking north, it's just a few blocks from a Publix supermarket and CVS pharmacy that together stock everything you will need. Parking? it's true that many of the spaces face busy Ocean Avenue. But most of the time, I found a place in one of the two inset lots off the street. And when I was forced to park facing Ocean Avenue, I had plenty of room to turn my car around and face it toward the street for an easy exit. I stayed 12 days, and wouldn't hesitate for a second to book again if the occasion arose.

We had a booking on this street-side motel, based on many good reviews even in here. We arrived and realized that this is not by the beach, there is nothing around the area and the car had to be parked in a way that you need to cut the traffic in the Ocean Dr. (there are about 6-8 other parking spots, which were taken). Plastic chairs by the door in corridor and decor from 70's completed with A/C in different area than beds. We left after 2h and checked in to the close by Hilton Doubletree. Paid full price for this experience. Can't recommend unless you just need a place to sleep and move on.

This is one of the best places I've ever stayed. It is 2 blocks from the public beach, restaurants, and shops. It is family run, creating a sense of community while providing personalized service. All staff are helpful, friendly, and accommodating. We intended to stay for a week and stayed 5! The community amenities are well maintained and clean. Friendly and affordable!

Stayed 4 nights...easy check in, free parking ..hotel as many small clean pools, very relaxing chairs, tables, also hot tubs, and bar-b-qs available....ice machine, microwave also available as well as guest laundry ..
We had reg room, no kitchen, but had cups, glasses, corkscrew , mini fridge and coffee maker... AC worked wonderfully, as well as ceiling fan....Next visit definitely will take room with kitchenette as Publix grocery store is just a short walk away....
Location of motel perfect...across street from fantastic restaurants..ie Village Grill! And of course the beautiful beach and ocean...
House keeping was done everyday, however was surprised that they didn't change or clean cups and glasses unless asked...especially since we didn't have a kitchenette to do ourselves....but they did provide me with clean glasses once I asked....otherwise no complaints...they even provide amenities such as shampoo....
Will definitely return and recommend as Shore Haven had everything we needed and more!

Room Tip: Room with kitchenette well worth it as Publix grocery store just a short walk away....

I have been going to the Shore Haven for years. It is family owned and they run it great. Very friendly. It is clean and reasonable. Two pools one heated one not. We go back there every year. Close to everything that you need. The beach is one block away. The supermarket is within walking distance. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance

This is a nice and small resort that I have returned to this year. Last year was my first visit and it was fun! Spent time with a few retiree's and they were a blast. This year, since we visited in August it was nice and quiet. We did see one of friends we met last year and that's what's nice about this place, you keep coming back. This place does have a laundry room and the pools are always available. The beach is in walking distance, less than 1 1/2 blocks along with a souvenir shop, nice restaurants and ice cream shop! The owners are great people and always so helpful.

Room Tip: Getting a room on the first level is always nice the pool is right outside your door. Having a seco...

I stayed here for six nights after arriving at the Beachcomber "resort" down the road, which looked like a crack house. I am so glad I turned into their driveway. I was visiting for job and house hunting for my impending move to the area. I was wary since I usually stay in 5-star hotels, but with trying to keep the cost down I took a gamble. My room was clean and large. No weird smells, no pests, no noise from rooms on either side. Arthur, the property manager, and his dad were so sweet and helpful. There was a coffee maker and fridge in my room, the outdoor common areas and pool were spotless, and they also have a microwave to use, laundry, and a hot tub. So the room is still kind of stuck in the 70s, but as I said it was clean as a whistle. The air conditioning unit worked great, and there were windows on both ends of the room for cross-breeze if that's what you like. I would go back there and recommend it in a heartbeat. And as I always suggest when closing a review...don't forget to tip the chambermaids!!!!
