Great location near lovely public beach, motel manager, Andres, is helpful providing information about restaurants, massages or whatever. There are bikes, beach chairs, beach umbrellas & sand toys that one is free to use. It is an updated 1950's motel. In late January, several of the guests had been there before and would get together around the pool. They were all seniors and friendly. The kitchenette was minimal (stove marginal) but served it purpose. We had planned to stay 3 days and stayed 5 as we were enjoying ourselves.

WOW, what a terrific place to stay! We took a quick 3 night vacation to Vero and found exactly what we were looking for at South Beach Place. We arrived about 8:00 pm and the office was closed. We called the number and Andres (resident mgr) finished his dinner out, to check us in. It was his first time at a new restaurant and he recommended it. We enjoyed a great meal out the next night at the new Italian restaurant. Andres is a personal "host" at heart, and makes certain everything is perfect at SBP, and also knows where to go and where to avoid. He takes a lot of pride in SBP AND IT SHOWS. It's very safe, clean and quiet. We grilled out one night - a pompano fish caught earlier in the day, rode bikes that are made available to guests, and walked (2 minutes max to the sand) to the beach. The pool is heated and the grounds are meticulously maintained. It truly was everything we expected and we look forward to returning next year. Thanks Andres!!

we weren't sure what to expect when we arrived and what we were greeted with way exceeded our expectations! the hotel was adorable, the rooms nicely furnished and VERY clean, the pool a nice size but it was the amenities that really made the stay special. everything from beach chairs and umbrellas to bikes of every size (free for the taking), pool toys, frisbee, shuffle board, bbq gas grill, so many nice areas to sit poolside and andres. andres is the manager and he saw to everything. fresh towels everyday and laundry facilities on site. also, the things in the room (dishes, pillow etc) all really nice quality and in abundance. we will definitely be back!!

Room Tip: next time we would choose a room with 2 day beds instead of a day bed with 2 chairs.

A short walk from an uncrowded public beach, this well-maintained 1950s-style motel, now calling itself a "boutique hotel" with individually-decorated rooms, forms an L around a nice pool with lush plantings around it for atmosphere and privacy, in a quiet neighborhood most tourists to Vero never find. This gives a taste of what Florida was like before the millions descended on it and spoiled most of the old charm. Refreshing.

Beach towels and chairs are provided, as well as beach toys for kids, and bicycles. The efficiency kitchen in each unit is a nice alternative to always eating out. Vero has good restaurants near the beach, but they can be spendy.

The booking services linked from here didn't show a room available, but contacting the hotel directly revealed that wasn't so. The price booking directly was competitive.

Room Tip: Five of the rooms have king rather than queen beds. We stayed the first night on a queen and were sw...

This hotel is across the street from the beach and at the end of a very quiet street. If you are a brand-name hotel lover, this isn't necessarily the place for you. It is charming, with only about 16 rooms and an absolutely beautiful pool area. We stayed only one night, but wished we had taken the opportunity to stay longer so that we could really get the feel of the place. My husband absolutely loved the hotel and I felt it was a little pricey for what it was (maybe I am more of a brand-name hotel lover than I thought!). The location is great, close to restaurants, shops and a few miles from an Outlet Mall. You couldn't ask for a friendlier staff and owner.

We were surprised at how much we enjoyed staying here for several days. It seems much more like a home (apartment) than a motel room. It included everything we needed - dishes, appliances, furnishings. We visit Vero each year and definitely plan to stay here whenever we are in town from now on. Alex K.

My wife & I spent three nights here at the end of a seven week trip. It was the perfect end to our holiday.

First things first: the greeting. We were welcomed warmly & sincerely by Laura on reception & then by the Property Manager Andres. We had read the reviews before booking & the term" friendly staff" was used, but that undersold it.

Second, that feeling. It's hard to describe, but the place had that nice feeling you get when you arrive home after a long spell away; that sense of homecoming & feel good.

Next, the accommodation: 18 rooms on two sides of a good sized, clean swimming pool. The room was clean & with a well equipped kitchen/lounge/diner, but it was the little things that made the difference. The crockery, cutlery, glassware & cooking utensils were all of a good standard. The lamps in the room were eclectic & the decor was simple.

There were bicycles available to use, a gas barbecue by the pool for general use; nothing was too much trouble. And Andres & Co were all ready with information about the area to make a stay at this delightful place as pleasant as possible.

Finally, its position is perfect - a ten-minute cycle from shops & restaurants & a 100 yards over to the beach. If you find yourself driving up or down the Space Coast, then two, three or more nights spent here will do wonders for your wellbeing.
