Prior to check-in you are given a form to sign stating you will not have any visitors or guests, no refund once you walk in the room, and several other stipulations that I have never had to sign to stay at a hotel or condo. Dead roach in bathroom, live spider in tub. The room and property had a strong...

Didn't expect much from this place and although they offered a kitchen kit you would think they would at least have one bowl, one plate or something in their fully equipped kitchen. Bed was very uncomfortable and from reading other reviews, sounds like all are. Pool was open but they were fixing fence around it so it looked like a...

I was saddened to read that we failed to fully meet your expectations during your stay. In order to offer our rooms to guests at the lowest possible seasonal price, we give our guests looking for a spot to vacation near the beach on a budget the option to bring their own kitchenware, etc or to rent a kitchen kit...

It was a short stay for us, but the room was very nice and comfy. Enjoyed the stay. Planning to go back soon. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The pool area is very nice and will soon have a privacy fence which will make it better. Also, there is a play area for the kids.

We found this place online and were very happy to find a three star hotel(ha) so close to the beach with so many five star reviews at such a great price. We paid about $55 for it and were tickled with the deal. From what I understand the family that lives there manages the place, and the people who own...

Dear Micheal M, Thank you for taking the time to make your review. We welcome and appreciate all guest feedback and suggestions. I am happy to read we were able to upgrade you to the newer upstairs one bedroom apartment.

The gentlemen who checked us in was very kind, but beware of the fine print and take your time to read it. They will not provide you any advance warning that a refund is not available at all as this is a "family owned business". We were charged $228 for 2 nights including pet fees for 2 miniature schnauzers. After...

Great place to stay! less than a minute walk to the Beach. Pool and a playground for the kids. Friendly manager and owners. Great price for all they offer. Rooms perfect. Small Kitchenette, but adequate for cooking meals for family if that is what you want to do. Pool was very clean with some pool toys. Water hoses available to...

My family and I have stayed at the South Beach Inn because John, the manager, is extremely helpful, knowledgeable about SPI, and treats us like family. Great place to stay! We didn't need to go get full of sand because the pool was at our front door!
