I had stayed there before, about 10 years ago. This was a last minute getaway in peak season and they had a room by the pool with a beach view for $269/night plus tax. It was clean but very dated. The bed was comfortable and the sleep sofa was fair. There was an odor to the fabric on the sofa....

We had just got off a wonderful and relaxing cruise, but wanted to experience that side of Florida. The weather was cool, but you could still walk on the beach so we wanted someplace that was on the beach that didn't cost a fortune. This is an older motel that has a fresh coat of paint on the rooms to...

A very nice old time beach motel. Had a wonderful large one bedroom with hide-a-bed in living room, Which we unfolded to watch TV and look at beach and pool right outside door. Has charcoal grills, like the state parks, nice change from all the gas grills. Full kitchen and large full size fridge. Great central air in our unit....

What a great find! Location is perfect. You are literally on the beach. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in the two bedroom suite overlooking the ocean and it was perfect. What an excellent Christmas present from my in-laws!

The Coquina was a last minute trip. Based on reviews we choose to stay here because it was on the beach, close to St. Armands circle, and 15 minutes from the airport. On all three points this is a five star motel. The room and motel itself is a three star. With older Florida beachfront motels you lower your expectations...

We were going to the nearby gulf beach resort, but it was all booked. So we gave it a shot. From the outside it didn't look that great but the room was comfortable. It's halfway between a motel and a beach hotel. The quality is average, but the price is good. I loved the fact that our room was literally...

I had stopped at several other hotels but the price was too high. I found this hotel and walked in to Garvin the front desk person. He was wonderful and had a great attitude. I was very happy with the room. The whole area was very clean and it was wonderful to get out of the pool right onto the...

The owners should be thankful for the staff they have on hand. I had one problem after another on arrival (water in one room, bugs in another, locked myself out of the room and given the wrong keys - twice, and water that didn't drain), but the staff always tried to make it right. Coquina is in a fabulous location,...

I hesitated to write this review.

I would like to thank you for your review, however I find it to be unfair and slanderous.

While on a recent semi-business trip, we were looking for a room on the beach. We used our room coupon book and picked Coquina on the Beach. Of course, the advertised room was not available so we "upgraded", for double the price. What can I say, it was pouring rain and we were ready to call it a day. The...
