“Great place with a cool retro feel.”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

I could not say enough about the Floridana Beach Motel. What a great little mom/pop motel with such a cool retro feel. Ernest and Isa wonderful owners who come talk to you and make sure your questions on the area are answered. Rooms are all done retro Florida, close to beach, and Sebastian State Park as well as Melbourne. We stayed 3 nights and felt completely at home and safe. Reasonable rates. What a great feel that they do not accept pets or smokers, which is why this motels looks and smells clean. They had a place for us to store our bikes, clean fish, rinse shells and our feet. If you are looking for a place that isn't the Ritz, has a nice retro, homey feel, than this is the place when you are in this area.

Ernie was the usual gracious host. Stayed at The Floridana last year and was happy to return. Accommodations are clean and neat. A blast from the past and don't expect fancy. The beach just got new sand and is beautiful. Price is right.

Did you ever read a book called the Pink Motel as a kid in the 50's? Well, I did, and I think this might be the place, because you'll feel like you're back in those good old days as a guest here.

Nothing to complain about at all, just a nice place to stay overnight, with great friendly hosts, a nice beach (about 150 yard walk down the road to a beach access) and quiet seaside ambience.

Our room didn't have a kitchen, but I'm looking forward to staying in an efficiency when I return for a week the next time....Grocery stores are only about 15 miles up the road.

And finally, my thanks to Ernie, the owner, for all his help during my car repair crisis on 95!

The Floridana is clean and secure. To be accepted as a guest one must first pass the non-smoker test. If you smoke you're persona non-grata. That is one of the reasons these old rooms smell fresh and clean The next hurdle to jump is you have to convince Ernie that your wife or girlfriend isn't a "princess." "Sometimes the women expect too much--we're a no-frills motel", he says.

Anyway, if you're OK with a clean room, hospitable owners at an inexpensive price, give the Floridana a try.

I can't say enough good things about this little motel. The owners, Isa and Ernie and Orzo (their dog) were so accommodating. I was visiting family nearby so it was my home away from home. The room was clean, fresh and homey. Don't expect luxurious but do expect friendly service, conversation, and a beautiful beach. Love, love, love this place. I will be back soon.

I've stayed here 3 times in the past 2 years. Prices are extremely reasonable. The private beach across the street is a fun walk. After close to a mile walk on the beach is a tiki bar and restaraunt where the locals hang out. The rooms can come with or without a kitchen and have all the equipment needed (corkscrew, wine glasses, etc). The owners are super sweet and nice to chat with. If you're looking for something different from the average hotel chain and crowded Florida beaches then this is the spot!

We have stayed at three other places in the Melbourne Beach area and Floridana Beach Motel was by far the best: clean, homey, great hosts (including Orzo the dog) and an old-time Florida feel. We stayed in April after a heck of a winter in New England and needed the R & R. Ernie and Isa offered the best in hospitality including humor and an awesome last night dinner. We didn't want to leave! Best of all, it's a no smoking environment and we left the windows open for cross ventilation since the ocean breeze brought in beautiful air daily: never needed to use the airconditioning. Price is right too! See you both next year!!!

Room Tip: If you prefer to cook in, there is everything you need, so opt for a room with a kitchenette.
