“Clean as a whistle”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Always leery of the older motels? No worries about this motel. This is a very well maintained property. The rooms are very clean. The maid service is great. We had a cover off the a/c and honestly we called the desk and the maintenance person was at the door within a minute.
For the value here combined with the cleanliness and the kindness of the staff I can only wish that we would have found this during our other trips. Restaurants within walking distance and a supermarket across the street.
Very nice and we will place this motel at the top of our list for when we return.

Room Tip: Efficiencies are the way to go if you can get one.

I was looking for a nice, but not too expensive, place to stay during my vacation and this motel was just what I needed. The staff was very nice and helpful, the room was clean and the equipment in the kitchenette was in a very good condition. As other mentioned, a supermarket, a pharmacy and some nice little restaurants at a walking distance are added values. Only two minor things bothered me: the incapacity to connect to the Wi-Fi (but I could use the quoted link with my laptop) and the quite noisy air conditioning unit. But I definitely recommend this place.

When we got there we got a bit worried… However – no reason to worry. Friendly welcome, free parking, large and clean room. The area is safe, the internet connection works fine and the pool is nice. Note that the beach is very close, but you have to take a long walk to get to a beach with public access. The aircondition was not very good.

NO ELEVATOR - if you need a ground floor room, be sure to let them know when you make your reservation.

Looking for someplace acceptable for the "night before the cruise" stayover, this place can fit the bill. While it's a redone 50s (probably) place - could be referred to as a "boutique motel," it has what one needs for an overnight stay - except shampoo. Yep, be sure you pack some extra. Other than that, the location is good, there are some eating places one can walk to. A donut shop across the road for the coffee and "healthy breakfast" before the shuttle arrives to take you to the port. The staff is very accommodating, appears to be family run. The neighborhood appears safe enough to walk around, and it's a short walk to the beach. They can make accommodations with a local shuttle service for a reasonable fee to pick you up at the airport and/or take you to the port.

The hotel is very well located by a beautifull beach. The strengh is the cleanness of the room and very nice staff. For the amount we paid, I think we got a very nice deal. We would defineately like to go back. I recommend the full efficiency room, is more spacious, found the 2 bedroom a little tight. I found some guests a little weird, but I guess it is commom South Florida experience.

Room Tip: The full efficiency room is the best deal in my opinion. Found the 2 queem bedroom a litte tight in...
