“Affordable oceanfront”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

The location on the beach is awesome for the price you pay. Walk out your door and down a path and you are on the beach. You can also walk to The Town Center and do your shopping and eating. There are quite a few restaurants to pick from and everyone we tried was very good. The rooms in the hotel are older, so if you like fancy or very modern you might want to go elsewhere. They were clean but we did have a few bugs around the sink. The beds were older, but we were able to sleep ok. There is a bar in the courtyard so it can be loud outside, but our air conditioner drowned out the noise pretty good. Overall, it's a great location for the price if you don't need an ultra new or modern room.

Room Tip: Don't get a downstairs room if you don't want the bar outside your window.

Sometimes it is a duck. When you hear the words, tiki bar on the beach... in a motel, you get exactly what you would expect. Service was horrible and non attentive, even for a tiki bar, patrons were most wasted baby boomers and, when we got our drinks at 11.30pm, a policeman told us to wrap it up and finish them at midnight, along with another staff member. So... if you are looking for a place to get mistreated, this is your joint. For anyone with a little class and less than 12 drinks imbibed, go somewhere else. Not worth it, even if the drinks are cheap. Glad we only spent 30 minutes there.

I understand the wide range of comments on this motel. It is an older property that benefits from a prime location right on Neptune Beach. The management is nice and very responsive. They provide a bagged breakfast if you want it. The Lemon Bar next door is especially fun, and you can take drinks from the bar to the motel. We have been here several times and love it. But if you are expecting elegance, you will be disappointed.

Old place with a nice view, Needs lots of upgrades, pool was cold and we were told it was warm, but was not heated. Room was clean, but was on the second floor with no elevator, wife has a bad leg and i have heart condition. Room was nice but not for us, would be ok for young couple or kids. Had a very nice bar area, but was so crowed we did try it. would not stay again, price was very high also

Room Tip: most rooms have nice ocean view, but you must be 2nd or third floor to see

This funky little Inn is AWESOME! We live here in town and everyone who comes to visit stays here. It is basic but immaculate. Staff is super friendly. And the views cannot be beat. Even though we live in town, we love coming out to stay for celebration weekends.

Got there on a Friday evening. Tried to flush toilet it and it overflowed. Sewage was someone else's. Called downstairs and they promptly sent someone up to clean it. Around 11-went to use toilet again-would not flush. Had an adjoining room with another family, used their bathroom. Next morning called again about toilet and requested a microwave. Microwave never came-and felt pretty ignored. Saturday-toilet worked for awhile (and lucky us they left the hotel plunger for us to use), by Saturday night the toilet was not working. Tried to plunge it out ourselves, but it over flowed again. Major mess. Disgusting. Asked for some kind of compensation and was given $20.00 for each night. We are calling the department of health and the better business bureau. If you decide to stay-wear shoes in the bathrooms-you will never know what you are walking on.

Be advised that the management will charge your credit card a $100 "security deposit" in addition to the room rental charge without notifying you of this fee when you book your room. Not only do they not advise you of this extra charge beforehand, but they specifically quote you the room rate plus tax as your final total. This unpleasant surprise will be sprung on you upon check-in, and your credit card company will place the extra amount on hold until settlement in a few days. In the meantime the $100 hold will not be available for you. If you've travelled a long way and/or have budged a specific amount for lodging, this is a nasty awakening. I just got home and discovered that the extra $100 was not dropped upon checkout. I won't stay again at the Seahorse even though it used to be my and my family's favorite place in the Jacksonville area. The breakfast "basket" you're promised is pathetic, the pool is crowded and the staff is rude. Stay away!
