Travelled to Florida for a long weekend and stayed at Ocean Mile. Cute hotel, great rates and a perfect location! Near everything I wanted to do (beaches, restaurants, nightlife). Great staff and clean rooms! Will definitely stay there again!

We stayed at this lodge about 25 years ago. It is still just as nice now as it was then.
Our children were small and they enjoyed the pool and the beach.
It is in a great location, walking distance to a nice deli, supermarket within walking distance. We will be back.....

We stayed there post cruise for 5 days and loved it. The owners were so kind and friendly and the place was very very clean and just plain comfy. They had a small dog as well that came and visited us in the morning when we sat near the pool for coffee. Many of the guests there we found were returning guests, and I can see why. The atmosphere was so nice. Id wake in the morning and find Theresa (owner) out near the pool sweeping up. You could tell they took great pride in the property. The beds were comfy (not great mind u, not an overstuffed matress where you'd find at a hotel that hit u with 200 a night_but comfy. The room was clean and big enough. Location was terrific as well. If you want to just relax, and enjoy some chat with friendly folks this is the place to go. My fav times were in the early morning and going out to sit at the tables near the pool (umbrellas were all new) and talking with the owners as we all had coffee and other guests chiming in. It was really very nice. A nice change from those huge hotels where nobody knew your name!!!

We have stayed in many hotels, worldwide, and this little place is the best yet! The rates are extremely reasonable- we had a kitchenette or "Efficiency" room for $60 per night. The place is spotless and very well kept up. The owners, John & Teresa Kurdek are more like gracious hosts than anything, and they were great to give information on the sights and places to go, as well as where to shop for groceries to stock the big fridge with goodies! There is ice available on-site, a lovely swimming pool and the beach is about a block away. Everyone is friendly, the poolside patio is surrounded by palms and a gorgeous selection of shrubs, plants and flowers- it is a little oasis in the middle of the busy city. There are several pubs and family restaurants right nearby, and all the water sport activities are just a short drive in any direction. You can't go wrong with this gem of a place! We plan to go back as soon as we can, and the Ocean Mile will be our home away from home once again!

We stayed at this property post-cruise and were very disappointed. This hotel DOES have two things going for it - the price and the location. - however we will not stay here again, nor recommend it to anyone because, the beds were the WORST I have ever slept on, I have thrown out far better linens, I killed a cockroach in the bathroom, and finally the noise level was absolutely deafening - no one in our party of four in two rooms slept barely a wink for 3 nights. As well, the washer and dryer left rust stains on our laundry! Our room came with a coffee maker but when I asked for a couple mugs the owner advised me that I hadn't booked a kitchette so the room didn't come with any dishes!!?? Huh?? - what was I suppose to pour the coffee in - my hand?? After I gave him a puzzled looked he relented and offered me 5 styrofoam cups. A man came in to the office while I was there and asked why his phone didn't work. The owner asked him if he had paid the $25 deposit when he had checked in for the priviledge to make phone calls. I've never heard of this practice before !!?? Good thing we never had to call 911 because we hadn't paid the $25 'deposit' fee either!

If finances are a hugh consideration for you, you will get less than you pay for here. However, if you are stuck here, it is a great location (other than the noise) just across the street from the beach, there is a nice Hilton just down the road that offers a good breakfast buffet for $8.95, and the pool is alright for a quick dip.

Don't nickle and dime your vacation - spend more and enjoy yourself! This place is just too questionable.
