The location is great for beach goers since it's just a short walk across the street to the beach. We really appreciated having access to some beach chairs and towlels for the beach. There was also an outside shower and hose to rinse off sandy items. We had a nice continental style breakfast with bagels, muffins, coffee and such. Although an older style motel type of place, the room was clean and remodeled with a nice little kitchen and tile floors and flat screen tv. The courtyard area where the room doors open up to is very nice with a pool and pretty plants. Overall a nice place to stay, a good value and great location.

Room Tip: Bottom level rooms are more convenient if you are traveling with children or elderly.

This is a partially remodeled old school motel. Two blocks walk from the beach. If you like a cool room, this is not the place. Household air conditioners are in the windows and can not keep up with the rush of heat that comes in when you open the door. Pool is clean. Property is tidy. Good for the price with small kitchenette. No manager available after office hours, no way to get assistance in the evening.

Room Tip: No elevator or help with your bags, so you are best to ask for the ground level

Dear Lisa S.

First, we thank you for choosing the Ocean Lodge Florida, and for taking the time to share your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed the pool and our proximity to the beach. We apologize you had problems with your suite’s windows, but we are glad to announce that future guests will not have the same issue. Our latest property improvement was the upgrade and replacement of our windows.

The Ocean Lodge was renovated as a boutique ocean-side hotel several years ago. Each unit boasts upgraded furnishings, newly tiled flooring and bathrooms, granite kitchenette with fridge, burners, microwave, coffee maker and kitchen accessories. In addition to the in-room kitchenette, we encourage guests to avail themselves of our complimentary continental breakfast located under our covered outdoor lounge, which is located next to the grilling area and pool.

We provide an intimate setting at our 18 room ocean-front hotel. Boca’s South Beach is a short walk through a tropical boardwalk path to the beach. Based on availability, we provide chairs, beach umbrellas and toys for kids. If the beach doesn’t draw you, we have a heated pool and are also close to golfing options, sport fishing, fine dining and shopping. For those traveling on business, we also have a well-equipped business center complete with phone, computer, fax and computer. Of course WIFI is available to all guests at no charge.

The Ocean Lodge is not only my place of employment, but it is my home. As the Resident Manager, I certainly make myself available to assist guests. If I happen to be away from the office or my suite, I do provide a telephone number to contact me. This can be obtained through the recorded greeting and is also posted on the office door. My staff and I take great pride in making guests feel they are part of our family. Although it is true we do not have an on-site elevator to access the second floor, we are certainly willing to assist with bags. Guests can arrange this in advance of their arrival or just ask.

If you return to Boca, I hope you will give us a second opportunity to improve your stay. Please ask for me – Israel Blanco – directly.

Sincerely

Israel Blanco
Hotel Manager

While visiting the east coast of Florida looking at colleges, we came upon Ocean Lodge. It was perfect for our overnight. Had I known of its charm I would have planned an extra overnight. The rooms were clean, and kitchenette was perfect. Pool with toys and towels, Old Florida like walking path to beach was great, would have liked to have taken advantage of the bicycles...Perfect little hideaway will definitely stay there again when visiting that area. Continental breakfast was perfect before heading out. Thanks Israel.

My sister got married and our family rented out more than half of the hotel. Every room was lovely, spacious, and great value for the money. The hotel has a help yourself "beach/pool closet" so you can use chairs, toys and towels which was convenient since we had small children. The hotel also supplies cribs/pack n plays for the babies. Very close to Mizner Park and the beach. Breakfast is served each day consisting of pastries, fruit, bagels, coffee and yogurt. Everyone enjpyed themselves. We stayed 5 nights.

Room Tip: We had room 205, which seemed larger than other rooms.

Excellent value for the money, and tasty breakfast was included too. Our room was very spacious and had a nicely equipped kitchenette. The location is right across from the a lovely and fairly quiet family friendly beach. We will definitely stay at this hotel again

Room Tip: We choose ground floor, a few steps to the pool.

I've just returned from my third stay at Ocean Lodge and I can't wait to return. From the large and spacious rooms - suites really with fully equipped kitchenettes - to the lovely pool and outdoor breakfast nook and to, most importantly, the first rate, personable service overseen by one terrific person who I now consider my friend, Israel, I could not ask for more from a hotel of any category. By the way, Ocean Lodge is just a stone's throw from one of the loveliest beaches along A1A where you will enjoy white sand and gentle waves far from the madding crowd. The location is superb, just around the corner from an array of excellent restaurants, cafes and shops clustered around the luxurious Mizner Park retail & dining complex. Forget Southbeach, Ocean Lodge and environs is the real deal.

Room Tip: If you can reserve a larger suite - price and value is incomparable - it's well worth it.

The 1950's style motel is updated and clean. It is located across the highway from the beach. For Boca Raton, the price is very reasonable. This is a great location for all of the sites in the area. If you are into nature, the Gumbo Limbo State park is just 3 minutes down the road and is a must see.
