“Simply AMAZING!!!!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I've never felt so comfortable away from home. The entire staff is friendly and make u feel right at home. The rooms are clean and relaxing and energizing at the same time. Fantastic view of the beach and a beautiful view to catch the sun rise. Great location! The prices are amazing and well worth every penny! Hands down 110% happy with Snooze!! And I will highly recommend this place to friends and family and even strangers!! I didn't know what to expect at first being my first time there... But I loved it! Thanks to all the staff at Snooze!

I enjoy staying here every time. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean, and comfortable. It's a great low key beach location that's walkable to restaurants. Wonderful place to have a relaxed, casual getaway!

- Great location and cheap rooms.
- They don't waste money on lobby, 24H reception, breakfast or things like that.
- Just by the beach! Free chairs for rent. Starbucks and CVS nearby.
- Good guy Joe who works there will help you with everything.

But:
- If you're going with your better half, choose something a little bit more fancy? One guys opinion!

Back to a simple and better time. Cool deck, perfectly appointed and clean rooms and right on the beach! Beach time fun without the fuss :-) Joe the clerk is the nicest hotel employee we've ever met. If you love Ikea and aren't looking for a valet or concierge this is your spot! My "I want to go to the beach" vacation. See y'all again soon!

We learned about this place by word of mouth, we looked it up on the internet and booked it for one night and ended up staying for two! We expected to find a basic room, no frills but actually there was a lot more that other 'basic' accommodation offers. The first room (204) we stayed in had two huge beds, kitchen area (with crockery and cutlery), breakfast bar, desk, another table and the room itself was massive and very clean. Second room (202) was $30 cheaper it had one bed of the same size and a fridge and coffee making facilities and was perfectly adequate for the two of us. There is parking for all guests under the hotel and around the corner. The location is perfect, opposite the beach and within 10 minutes walk of shops, restaurants, bars etc. We need to give special thanks to Joe the manager as he helped us with everything from umbrellas to corkscrews, restaurants to jet skis! Awesome place, we will definitely be visiting again.

Room Tip: Speak to Joe the manager about your needs. (204 family and 202 couples)

Spent just 2 nights at this little gem. Found this small beachfront hotel on an internet search. Read all the reviews I could find and booked it. Booked last room they had for my time frame, a deluxe 2 king room with kitchenette. Loved it.

Location: Very easy to find from the highway. Was driving in from Key West and staying 2 nights, directions were clear and location easy to find from the highway. Richard (the owner) had called me during the afternoon to welcome me, and confirm my arrival time. Was a nice surprise. The beach is directly across the street. Directly. There is a restaurant right next door and the hotel is a few short blocks from shopping, add'l dining and bars. Water taxi is not too far.

Room: I stayed on 4th floor. There are stairs (which I used except for loading/unloading suitcases), and old and small elevator. The room was excellent. Super clean, bright and airy. Super clean white walls, headboards, teal blue chairs and kind of an art deco / retro feel to the room, only modernized with clean lines. Beds were very comfortable, with stark white linens w/ the same teal spreads. Plenty of towels. Floors were free from rugs and made of some material that almost felt cushioned?. Lots of lighting, including some table lights a floor light and some in ceiling spot lights at the table. Bathroom had tons of lights and a small window. Several desks and a lovely, tall, butcher block table at the kitchenette area. Fairly large fridge w/ useable freezer. Microwave, toaster and coffeemaker - with coffee provided. Utensils, glass and silverware as well. Open closet with laundry bag and I believe detergent is also provided, although I did not use the facilities, I will next time. Shower - LOVED IT. Huge rainfall shower head, large walk-in shower stall. Plenty of drawer space and small open closet.

Staff: Excellent. Super friendly, informative and very helpful. Needed directions? no problem. They are more than happy to provide any assistance you may need.

Parking: A must have ! Free. Small spots but manageable and the owner even directed me into my spot. Oh yes, and most the spots are covered.

Price: Very reasonable and fair.

Small little gem among all the high rise "luxury" hotels…

Saw pictures of their new rooftop lounging area complete with hot tub they are currently building on the roof…. cannot wait to return and experience that!!

I recommend this place highly. No pool but who needs it when the Atlantic Ocean is seriously just a few steps away.

Thank you to the staff and owners of Snooze… it was a wonderful stay!!

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are directly facing the beach, mine was not, but there is a lovely sitting area (2...
