“Flashback to simpler times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

This hotel is a refreshing departure from chain hotels. It is intimate, with only 9 rooms, and affords personalized service. There is no daily housekeeping service but clean towels are available, and it is a bring your own hair dryer arrangement. The owners live on premise and are helpful and friendly, the rooms are immaculate. We had a kitchen that was well equipped for making breakfast, and dinner if desired. We were across the street from a public beach access but the hotel has a sparkling pool with lounges for relaxing for those who don't like to lounge in the sand. Rooms offer good wi fi and tv, but still somehow seem reminiscent of a simpler lifestyle. I would return without hesitation.

Room Tip: Rooms vary in size, and some have kitchens, some do not. There is even a pet friendly room.

What a delight it was staying here -- the owners could not have been more accomodating or gracious! The Sea Horse is in an amazing location; convenient and extremely easy to find. Great area to go for walks -- the beach is across the street!! Very clean, cool and comfortable

Room Tip: Room 9 was great because it seemed more private and had a street-side entrance.

My daughter and I stayed at the Seahorse Motel while she was playing in a softball tournament in Davie and interviewing at FAU. It was a great place in between both locations and easily accessible. But the best part was that it was at the beach! Additionally, Darren and Phillip (the owners) were great. They made sure that we had everything that we needed and made us feel like we were at home. The place is older, built in the 50s but they have done a remarkable job making it a nice quiet oasis. I would much rather stay here than one of the large impersonal chain hotels. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Pompano!

I stayed at the Sea Horse Motel for a little over 2 weeks while looking for a place to live in Pompano Beach. It is truely home away from home. Everything you need is right there. There are 9 rooms to choose from everyone is decorated beautifully. The pool area is just a little piece of paradise. The owners Darren and Phillip are two of the nicest guys you will ever meet.I highly reccommend the Sea Horse Motel if you are staying in the Pompano beach area. Thanks again Darren and Phillip for a wonderful Stay.

I watched the owners, Darren and Phillip purchase this property, renovate it, bring it to the top choice among the other area properties all to my own personal pleasure. I stayed with them when they opened and have returned every season. The rooms are clean, comfortable and enjoyable and the owners are responsible for making sure that my stay has always been above satisfaction. Just recently, a top rated, flagged and branded hotel chain opened down the block, but I will always prefer to stay here.

Every time I return, the Sea Horse has something new to offer; great guests to exchange conversations with, room and property improvements, lush landscaping and decor and a sense of warmth and inviting comfort.

Room Tip: Let Darren and Phillip know if you cook a lot or just need a small space for a few groceries. The k...

We stayed at motel for 2 weeks straight. It is a quiet place with lush vegetation that gives you privacy from the street. The units are clean, comfortable and pretty. We had everything we needed. The unit had a full kitchen and closets for storage. The Beach is just a few yards away, very convenient and non-populated (and is baby turtles season). The owners are just lovely, friendly and accommodating with anything we needed. This will be our choice to stay from now on. Will I recommend it? YES. If you want a quiet place, but close enough to shopping, restaurants and fun.. Stay at the Sea Horse Motel.

If you want a clean, convenient little motel, right across the street from the ocean, within walking distance of all your immediate needs, this is the place. I was searching for a pet-friendly motel/hotel for myself and my french bulldog. The Sea Horse has one pet-friendly unit that's perfect! And the motel turned out to be even nicer than I expected. The pool is partially enclosed with shrubs and palm trees so you have a wonderful feeling of privacy. The owners are very friendly, very helpful, very down to earth.
Having travelled down to Pompano Beach from NYC for many years to visit my mother, I'm happy to see the positive changes in this neighborhood over the years, I'm thankful that this motel is within walking distance of my mom's condo. I'll definitely be returning! A big thank you to Derrin and Phillip!
