My husband and I stayed here for two nights in July 2010. The location of the motel is good. It is in between Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach so we can get to both places within a few minutes. The owners are very helpful. You can ask them for directions or places to go and they always give you good information. The rooms size is good, they are clean, and have a TV, microwave, mini fridge, and coffee maker. There is ice in the main office and also they sell snacks and drinks.The price of the rooms is very reasonable for the area. We only experienced two issues: 1) the door nob was very loose, almost falling, so it can be a little unsafe. 2) Although the room was clean there was something in it that make us itch and after our second night, we had small type of bites all over...they seem like fleas bites but we aren't sure. We can't say for sure they are fleas bites or mosquitoes bites or what. We also thought that we could be allergic to their detergent or something like that but this was before we saw the little marks on our back, arms, and legs. We told the owner (lady) and she said that she never heard that before. We don't want this review to sound like we are telling you that they have fleas there, but we experience major itching and then the little bite marks appeared. But again, the room was very clean and they served it everyday. Although they don't allow pets, we think that probably the previous people that stayed in that room (8) might had sneaked in a pet. Who knows! Lastly, WIFI connection is extremely slow.
This was our experience and just wanted to give this motel a fair review.
