“Excellent location across from ocean beach, excellent value.”
Reviewed 10 March 2009

This is not a full service hotel... staying here is more like having your own apartment, with maid service daily. Staff is not at your beck and call 24 hours a day. But, in exchange for giving up 24 hour a day service, you get a great price for a clean, comfortable, modern room with kitchenette. Rooms have no phone, so bring your cell. The atmosphere is intimate, and the location on AIA across from a FREE ocean beach is safe. We looked at more than 20 places before choosing this one as a vacation stay for our sister and her husband. We were all very happy with the choice.

This is a clean, attractive motor inn-style boutique hotel right on A1A with only about a dozen rooms in an L-shaped 2 story building around a lovely pool/courtyard. A 5 minute walk has you on a beautiful, life-guarded beach with few people, despite being in the heart of "the season." Room has kitchenette: mini-fridge, coffee maker, 2 burner stovetop, sink. Room was serviced everyday, however coffee supplies were not always renewed. 9 hole public executive golf course practically next door (10 minute walk). Miles of safe walking/bike trail just outside your door. Office is open only sporadically, although we didn't need it once we were checked in.

The only down-side was that, while the courtyard/outdoor areas are well-lit at night, inadequate vertical blinds didn't block those lights, so the room never felt dark enough to get a really good night's sleep. This could be easily remedied if they would hang curtains across the windows.

We would, however, go back.

I have been at the Ocean Lodge for just over a week now and I would just like to say that my unit is quite lovely and VERY, VERY clean. My room has been tended to every day since I have been here. The linens are in good shape and smell very fresh. There are extra bathroom supplies under the sink (t.p., soap, shampoo, etc.) My dishes are washed every day and there is a little dish-sponge-on-a-stick containing dishwashing soap if I need it.

The units have been completely redone recently. Granite countertops and tile floors. Nicely decorated and very comfortable. By the way, the pool just outside your door is heated to about 80+ (F) and there are lovely seating arrangments that are swept and very clean.

It is usually pretty quiet here and although you have to walk into the park to see the beach (around the mangrove trees) you can hear the waves crashing if you are in front of the building.

The office is a bit lazy, but this is Florida. Things get taken care of in a decent amount of time. My only problem was that the internet went down for a 12 hour period. No worries, I just used my iPhone.

Try to book through TA using one of the travel discount sites. It's nice, but not nice enough to pay full price in "peak" season ($175 per nite December through April).

Went to the area for Valentine's weekend and we were VERY disappointed in this hotel. Rooms are 1960ish, we didn't want to sit on the couch, didn't trust the comforter, etc. No service whatsoever. The girl at the desk was nice, pretty and polite, but didn't seem to know much of anything. There was confusion on the credit card used and she told me she'd check with management, but we never heard from them about it. There was no ironing board, so I went down and asked for one, but never got it. Batteries on the tv were low and couldn't change channels or turn the tv off, asked for new batteries, called the emergency number (there is no service or management after 5 or on the weekends), and left a note for "maid service" (is there any?).... never got batteries and never got a call. Also left a note asking for more coffee for the coffee maker....never got that either. Finally on Sat eve I caught the "manager" checking someone else in and got some batteries, and he seemed vaquely aware of the credit card situation and said it "was ok, not to worry". For some reason, I still am worried....any wonder? I would not recommend this place to anyone, unless you are happy with minimal decor, old or missing equipment, and a total lack of service for days at a time. We will not return. I would gladly pay more for cleanliness and service when needed.

I stayed in this hotel for 10 days, and during that entire stay the sheets in the bed were never changed and washed. The Dishes are all dirty and there is no soap in the kitchen to wash them with. After 8 days, I had to find someone to get a few more bars of soap. It is a shame, It could be a nice place, But it is not very clean.
On one occasion I had to get a new set of clean towels for the room because the house cleaner never showed up.

This hotel is an outstanding place to stay. If you are looking to spend time at the beach or just hang around the pool this is the place for you. Hotel is just across the road from the ocean, very nice beach, chairs are provided free of charge by the hotel. Staff was very nice and helpful. The room was clean and cozy, with a cute little kitchen, flat screen TV, coffee table, dining table, and a work desk. Entire property is extremely well kept up. It was an excellent experience. This hotel exceeded my expectations. We loved it and we recommend everyone to stay and experience a great time.

Strongly suggest the place to anyone who likes a bargain. For the money I paid I was ready for a typical motel, but I was pleasantly surprised as I arrived.
The place is completely renovated, so the rooms very clean and the set up is very nice and cozy. Everything you may need even for a long-term stay is right there. I had such a great time that I plan to return next year.
Another surprise was a basically private beach, right across the street. I went there 6 days out of seven and it was never crowded. The hotel staff was polite and professional.
Anyway, just wanted to share my great experience and hopefully this helps anyone who’s contemplating on their hotel choices.
