“The way Florida should be”
Reviewed 19 December 2012

We've been coming down for years. If you are looking for 5 star glitz and chocolates on the pillow, forget it. But if you're looking for an interesting, clean, comfortable old school Florida motel/marina, this is it. Friendly staff, beautiful beach across the street. A real mixed bag of rooms available, ranging from a simple efficiency to a multi room family apartment. Nice swimming pool, clubhouse and patio. Fun communal BB grills, too. Shuffle board even!

Room Tip: Pretty quiet area in general, but if road noise bothers you, ask to be closer to the bay.
