“Love the island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

We have visited the island several times and love it. This is first time we stayed at Haley's. Not far from the beach but I will say the photos were a little more then what the motel really is. It was clean and quite, but I was disappointed they changed our room without asking. Internet was really bad, but I would stay there again.

We chose Haley's strictly on its roadside appeal--the bright, cheery colors and lush landscaping immediately charmed us (we grew up staying in little motels like this on summer vacays). It was built in 1953, but the motel was as modern and updated as it could be. Short stroll to a great beach. Sparkling clean. Nice separate kitchen/dining area with a futon that made it a little sitting room as well. Very comfortable queen-sized bed. Terrific Wi-fi. Adequate cable (mix of HD and analog). Lovely pool. The bathroom was our only "complaint" (and I hesitate to call it that). It's tiny. 1953 tiny. Small toilet, sink, and shower. However, the detachable shower-head made it much more manageable. The staff was fantastic: friendly, helpful, very knowledgeable of the area. Our stay was such a pleasure. This is now our go-to place in Holmes Beach!

This is a very friendly place to stay. The staff was excellent and even stayed after hours so that we could print our boarding passes. I must say however that when we first arrived we were a little disappointed. The bathroom was small. I mean small like don't shut the door while standing in front of the sink small. The pool, which we did not use anyway, was smaller than it looked in the photos. I believe that my expectations for Haleys were a bit high. I envisioned this place that sat right on the beach with elaborate surroundings. If this is what you are expecting look somewhere else. The walk to the beach is short. Just about 1,000 ft or so. The room is furnished with older style furnishings (late 1800 early 1900) to give it that early era feel. We had a fully functional dining-living-kitchen area (all in one)-dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, and sink. The TV was small. about a 22 to 26 inch and was located in the dining-kitchen-living area. There were spots that were in need of repair but nothing major. All in all this was a great place to stay. Just do not go in thinking this is some lavish beach resort. It is a small quaint place that grows on you. While there was no laundry on site there were a couple in close proximity (3/4 to 1 mile). I would definitely stay here again and am looking forward to it.

Room Tip: This is not right on the beach. You will have to walk down to the end of the road to get to the beac...

We fell in love with this gulf island while visiting a friend about 4 yr. ago. Had to come back and stay for awhile. The feeling is very special and beautiful. Next time hope to stay longer and enjoy somemore relaxation. The dining is island style and enjoyed very much. The sign of the Mermaid very special but a little pricy. Well worth it. The room was perfect and the owners wonderful. Enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed in a nice suite with full amenities-short walk to the beach-all accessories. The weather...

Love this place. I was looking for something that was safe, clean and conveniently located. Haley's was all of this. The beach was a 5 minute walk and all of the things needed for an afternoon on the beach was provided by Haley's including beach chairs and towels. A stop for the free trolly was 2 blocks away making everything on the island easily accessible. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Room Tip: Their web site was very helpful when selecting a room.
