This wonderful little place was perfect for our vacation lodging. It is a good location, located in the older part of San Marco Island and it is within walking distance to some good eateries. We also hit the various everglade nature trails and hot spots in the national, state and local parks within a 5 to 50 mile radius. The motel itself is an older building, but everything is neat and clean and there are nice finishing touches such as being able to use beach chairs, umbrellas and more. Super nice owners that will do just about anything to make sure you are having a good stay. If something is not working to your liking, it is your own fault by not contacting the owners. They are available! We had a microwave and little refrigerator which was very nice. (Also a coffee pot, so pack some coffee, they had filters). Also, good bird watching by the pool area and dock. A very active osprey was there everyday near the motel. Plenty of pelicans hanging out also. Next time I would reserve unit number11. It is located water side with a private balcony. It is more money, but looks like it is worth spending a little more. If you are looking for a swanky, resort feel, this is not the place. It is priced right for budget travelers and was just right with personalized customer service.
