“Great stop off on the way to key west”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2012

Stopped here on the way down to Key West. Thursday was Steak night and one of the best NY strip(and cheapest !)steaks I had on my trip. Great Sports bar, if you enjoy watching on tv with a beer. Rooms were fine and although quite close to the road we had no noise at night. If I went back to the keys I would make certain i stopped here again .

We stopped at the sports bar. When it was time to go, we got the check. She told us the card didn't work. So we gave her a new card. She ran the new card and I walked out. My husband stayed another 5 minutes. She came running back saying the check was wrong (it was not). She added another $15 to the total. Then asked him to increase the tip. He said no. Then we left and found three different charges on our cards. We had tipped her 20% she didn't think that was enough and so she increased the check to give herself more funds. We are protesting two of the charges.

We won't return. She's a bad waitress to begin with, she gets to you when it's convenient to her. She's been there too long and so the customers are getting strong armed by her.

Nice little out of the way hotel,,,,, Clean, great pool, and terrific sports bar. Great staff. Just right for a single night or several. ....each room has a lot of conveniences if your stay a few days, or just the night.

Room Tip: I prefer the very end room

Our stay at Ocean View was one of the highlights of our vacation. After several busy days, it was great to simply relax by the pool, take the short walk to the bar, sip our drinks, and just enjoy the sun. Our room was great, clean, and had a coffee pot (with enough coffee for 16 cups), a fridge and a microwave. There is no alarm clock, nor is there a hair dryer - no big deal, though.

We didn't eat at OV, but we did have drinks - very reasonably priced after what we experienced at Key West. We enjoyed talking with the other friendly visitors - a nice couple from England that we shared the sunset and drinks with.

A great find was the little boardwalk that took us to the water. Walk from the pool, past the fire pit and horse shoe pits, and you will discover your pathway to the water. There are benches to sit and relax as you watch the boaters or the sun. Take two drinks with you.....one won't be enough!

We will be back to visit Ocean View Inn, it just won't be soon enough!

Really enjoyed our short stay. Clean well presented room with a small kitchen area, private walkway to pool a great idea. Food at the inn was ok but choice of menu could have been better. Too much fast food. Whilst we enjoyed the friendly relaxing atmosphere, the motel would benefit from a maintenance schedule, the gardens need a gardener. My only negative comment is that visitors to the bar are allowed access to the private pool and the area is not big enough to cope. Generally good value for money. The rooms would benefit by having more utensils and plates, dishes etc

Room Tip: If you like your nights peaceful avoid rooms 1 to 3 as there is noise from the busy and lively bar a...

What a great stop - A great little motel, clean, comfortable, great outdoor poolbar and super sports bar for those who prefer neon tans. Rooms are bright with some amenities ( coffee pot, microwave,) end rooms are a little larger. This was an excellent spot for our overnight stay.

Room Tip: End rooms are nice - a little bigger but they all have outside patios to sit and watch the day go by...

What else can I say. There's an inside bar, outside bar, fire pit, and outside dining area. Bar tenders are friendly, bar food above average, at least the burgers and Cubans. Rooms have patios the connect to a path the the pool and outside bar. Huge NFL Sundays both inside and out. Rooms a very clean. The only reason it's not 5 is the age. They have done a good job with upgrades, but it's old and there is only so much they can do. Unless you are used the high end hotels, you won't be disappointed.
