Far Horizons Motel
Reviewed July 28, 2013

The most personal, Homey, Motel. The most Breath-Taking view of the Gulf. Good price for what it offers. Family Friendly. Short walk to Post Office, Gift shops, and the beat breakfast restaurant the Frog Pond. Family pool. The Kitchenette had all my cooking needs. Made my vacation perfect!

Room Tip: Room without beach view are still good rooms, just a walk around the corner and your feet are in san...

Couldn't ask for a more perfect place to stay. We have been going there for two years and are all ready set to go again in 2013. Nice clean rooms, friendly staff. The Motel itself is an older motel that has been kept up perfectly. You would think it was just built! It has a beautiful pool, a very nice breezeway that leads right out to the beach! We eat our breakfast every morning in the breezeway and end up there late in the afternoon for cocktails.. The beach is beautiful and did I tell you? The Far Horizens is directly right on the beach! There are plenty of resturants close by some you can walk to and if you want there is a trolley that you can take anywhere on Gulf Blvd where there are many more resturants and attractions. We have found our go to place for a winter retreat. We have told our friends and now we have more coming down this winter to stay at the Far Horizons....

We stayed for a partial week the first week of April 2012. For the price, this was a very good deal. Clean, nice pool, great beach front and was not crowded. The rooms are independentally owned and then rented out by the manager. Our room and our friends' room were updated and comfortable.

Our room was completely remodeled. Extremely clean. Staff was good. Pool was warm not the cleanest but nice none the less. I had a very enjoyable stay. Had stayed at other hotels in this area and this was the nicest by far!

We stayed for July 4th weekend in 2010. This place a fairly clean, reasonably priced, and our kids loved the pool. We came back for the July 4th week of 2011. This time we got a a room facing the gulf. We really enjoyed our stay. We never had any guests in our room, we cleaned up our room before we checked out, and we were respectful of those around us. We reserved the same room for next year, but a month after we got back home, we recieved a letter saying that due to complaints of having guests during our stay we were not welcome back next year. We are shocked! My husband called thinking that they got the wrong people. He was told that this was an association decision. Noone ever said anything to us while we were there. We would never knowingly break rules or disrespect anyone. I suspect that the owners decided that they wanted the room fro someone else.

I would just like to add that we do not put people on our do not return list unless we have a very strong reason for it. I would just like to say on our behalf that this family had a large amount of family members staying at a property close by . My other guests complained that they took over the pool area, and had about 22 extra people at our hotel. When a large amount of our guests have the same complaint we must take action to ensure everyone has a good time. Our other guests were very uncomfortable, and we had to take action to ensure this did not happen again.

My girlfriends and I have stayed here for about 14 years. We never caused any problems and always tipped the housekeepers and front desk. We always reserve our room one year in advance when we leave. Last May 2010 we reserved our room for May 2011. Six weeks before our reservation, we were contacted that our room, a one bedroom on the first floor, was no longer available for May 2011. The management had decided to no longer rent this room but we could have a second floor room in the back corner. One friend is 70+ and not good at stairs with all our luggage(motel does not have an elevator). Why would you wait so long to inform a guest that their room was no longer available? Not good customer service in my eyes. We found a great room two motels north and will now stay there. Far Horizons will NOT receive any money from my friends and I. Condition of the motel has also deteriorated in the past few years.
