The rooms are clean and the bed is confortable. One can sit on the balcony and watch life go by... The owner/manager is great: really nice and friendly. A touch of old Florida.stay in room six: the view is great.

This is one of those places that "is what it is". They do not pretend to be a luxury resort. They do not pretend to be a super value place. This place is a 7 room, very small motel directly on the beach that is there for you to lay your head down for the night in between great beach...

I have been going here to spend my last few days of summer with my bestest friend from Ohio, my Mom, and sister for quite a few years now. We love staying here as we are right on the most beautiful beach and the rooms at this motel are wonderful! We sit out on the balcony every nite and just...

My family just spent 6 days here and it was perfect for what we needed it for. Rooms were clean, nothing fancy, but a basic room that gave you a nice, clean place to sleep! We were able to leave our tent up at the beach and nobody bothered it, so that saved a lot of work! The location was...

First of all, I'll start with the cons: 1.) Out of the three days we were here, the owner was barely even here. He was the only person who had a key to the office, so we were unable to get more toilet tissue (we had to buy a pack from the store) & we couldn't get more towels. 2.)...

these pictures are for the person that asked how our stay was and what the rooms looked like. I agree with someone else that the ones that had a bad room and stay must have had a bad hair day because I didn't find anything like that!
