“Perfect location, mega-value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

The Sea Horse is perfectly located to the beach and restaurants. Beach access is just across the street. Pompano's ocean front walk has been updated and is just beautiful: restaurants, a bit of shopping, and Razzleberry's Ice Cream are all within walking distance. The motel's rooms are perfect: clean, updated, full kitchens, fantastic showers, and a great pool. The grounds are super nice and there is a feeling of openness because the property is not [yet] surrounded by highrises. Darren and Phillip are great hosts; accomodating and attentive. It's all about comfort and value and truly vacationing here. This will be our second home, so glad to have discovered it. See you next year, hopefully!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 4 which was bright and comfortable.

My father has stayed at this hotel several times when he has come down to visit, so I've seen several different rooms at the hotel. The rooms are very clean and look like they've been completely renovated. The rooms have wood floors and full kitchens with the necessary utensils. The grounds are well-kept, and the pool is heated (useful for the few months a year where it needs to be). The owners are incredibly nice and gracious. And best of all? You cross the street and you're at the beach. Although I've never rented a room to know the cost, my father says that it's a great value, and he'd recommend this hotel to others, as would I.

I came across this wonderful quaint little motel by chance, and I am so happy that I did! What a breath of fresh air... The rooms are adorable and clean. The owners were so friendly and helpful - I felt as if I stepped back on time! If you are looking for a quiet, affordable and home like environment that is steps away from the ocean and close to all the eateries of the Fort Lauderdale and Pompano area - this is it! It was so clean and well maintained, that I felt as if I was staying at a friend's home!

If you are traveling in South Florida or looking for a wonderful weekend get-a-way, the Sea Horse Motel in Pompano Beach is a hidden gem! The owners are personable, friendly, and fun. The rooms are impecably clean - each room has it's own personal style (like a B&B). It is within steps of the beach and close walking distance to wonderful places to eat and visit. It is a small and quiet place to stay, and very safe. I immediately felt "at home" and was impressed by the other courteous and friendly guests staying here.

If you want to be nearby Fort Lauderdale, but away from the noise and chaos - this is the place you need to stay! This is my second visit to the Sea Horse, and I cannot think of another place where I have truly felt "at home". A little slice of paradise!

Owner was friendly even though we did not meet him, it was a shame we were there for 2 days and did not get clean sheets or towels , I have stayed in many hotels in Florida and everyone offers room service except for this one I guess they did not mind charing my card. Woody Rusinovich

First, thank you for choosing to stay at our motel. It is our policy to always do our best to accommodate our guests, especially when arriving at difficult hours. While you reserved a room for 2 days, you did not arrive until day 2. Numerous attempts to complete your registration in person failed. Due to the number of calls made, our expectation was that if something was needed, you would have returned our calls & stated as such. We received neither calls nor requests in person requesting anything, nor any attempt to resolve registration issues. We apologize that our service was so deplorable that it required you to post your first review though you state you’ve stayed in many hotels in Florida.

We had a fantastic time here. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well decorated.

It wasn't on the beach, but you can just cross the street and be there, easy peezy.

If you want to stay at a place that is clean, friendly, close to the beach, close to stores, etc. This is it...the two fellows that run this place are so courteous, helpful, and upbeat that you feel like you have stepped back in time to when people cared about each other. I loved staying here and would recommend to anyone who is not caught up in 5 star B.S. and is not traveling with any "prince or princesses" that are "high maintence" and wants to have a vacation that feels like you are with friends. It is a flip-flop kick back place that is small, well kept, and safe. Loved it. Hope to get back there some day soon.
