Stay here if you're an exhibitionist!!
We stayed at the Beach Croft for a week. It could be called "rustic" but what we experienced greatly outweighed any charm the facility might have had. The owners have tried to make this a charming little "garden" paradise near the beach. This is great upon initial observation but in doing so they have provided a habitat for many Florida Bark Scorpions! They have also built a raised wooden loft to provide a view. This shabby structure was so poorly constructed that 2 of us (about 350 lbs. together) made it wobble so badly that we feared it was going to fall over. This was typical of the motel. It was all crudely remodeled; a completely jimmy-rigged, honey-do makeover. Our bathroom door couldn't close completely because it was so poorly installed. I had to correct the cable connection to get any television stations. I also had to fix the toilet seat so that important body parts didn't get crushed. Needed repairs for this one room would be a long list. I don't think the owner cares!
The final insult came on our last day. I was loading our luggage into our car at 10am (their only check-out time) when the male owner walked right into the room despite my protestations. My wife was getting out of the shower in the bathroom with the non-closing door. I raced back into the room and asked the owner to please wait, we would be gone in 5 minutes. He refused to wait 5 minutes and continued scurrying around the room "cleaning"! He continued to refuse to leave the room until I offered to call the police. There is no doubt in my mind he was attempting to get his own little peep show starring my wife. When I told him I intended to write this review of his motel and his perverted actions, he told me that I was not smart enough to write a review. Well, what do you think now, you pervert. I would not recommend this place to anyone for any reason.
