Looking for laid back/mom & pop/funky ON BEACH

Hi, we live in South Florida, and hope to come up there for the first few days of July, leaving before the 4th. Would like to find a smallish motel on the beach. We are happy with the style of Fawlty Towers, or Luna Sea type place, but would like it to be bug-free/fairly clean, and, again, on the sand... Just 2 adults, we don't need a kid friendly place, necessarily. Tiki bar nearby would be great. Any suggestions? Let me know if you want similar information for Pompano Beach. thanks, Love2

My husband and I have gone to Cocoa Beach many times and we usually stay at the Days Inn. It's across the street from the pier so you don't have to pay for parking. There is also a very nice open air bar on the pier that we always visit for a bite to eat and a couple of cold ones.

The rooms at the Days Inn are basic but have refrigerators and microwaves. There is also a pool. There's plenty of restaurants and stores close by.

Hope this helps.

We have vacationed in Cocoa Beach for 11 years and we stay at the Las Olas timeshare exclusively - it's on the other side of the pier from Days Inn and it is a family-run operation with magnificent rooms and GREAT staff.

It's right on the beach and easy walking distance to and from the pier. Ask for Becky - she's the owner/manager on property and tell her H.J. recommended it!

Thanks a lot Memae and Laughing Duck. LD, do you think they will take us for just 2 nights? If so, will look them up and give them a call. That sounds like just what I want. L2

We usually only stay at the Days Inn for 2 or 3 nights because we usually spend a couple of days in Orlando. Most times, we come into MCO late and just stay at the Quality Inn right by the airport and then rent our car and take the 45 minute drive the next morning.

Hope this helps.
