Very nice motel , close to the beach with a lovely large patio overlooking the beautiful Gulf . Very helpful staff and a beautiful pool, so refreshing. The rooms are older but very nice . My only problem was the hardness of the mattress, but I added padding by layering the bedspread and blanket on my side of the bed which worked nicely ( no pillow top mattress's here ) Parking is right at the motel .and a perfect view of the Gulf from my balcony.

Room Tip: There is no elevator but the owner took my suitcase up and down the stairs for me , but the building...

Room was great.. Anthony the lawn chair/boat rental gentleman was awesome! He made our stay very enjoyable. We had a room by the pool which was very convenient. We have stayed here before and will continue to when we return next time!

This is a great place for a beach vacation! I have been going here my entire life. Some parts are older some parts are newer, but no matter what part you stay in its nice, clean and well kept. Old school family vacation rental, with a nice accommodating staff. Its so relaxing there and I am looking so forward to this years vacation!

Room Tip: Make sure your room is facing the Gulf!

My mom, my aunt and myself have been coming here for 16 yrs. We come the 2nd week in May every year and have had a wonderful time year after year. It's not the fanciest place but we enjoy it. The owners are friendly and accommodating and everyone who works there is extremely helpful and friendly, We usually get an Oceanside suite with 2 bedrooms which we love because we can get up in the morning and sit on the patio watching the ocean; then when we're ready we can walk out front and lay at the pool. It's very family friendly and relaxing. It's clean and the maids are very helpful and trustworthy. If you want something posh and luxurious this is probably not the place for you.But if you're looking for a nice, quiet place to relax and enjoy the beach and meet some great people you will love it here. It is also within walking distance of several stores and restaurants.

This is a typical beach hotel pool side or beach side rooms both sides of the street. So you can walk out to the beach from your room walk out to the pool , turn and walk to the beach or walk across the street and on to the beach.
The room was clean and well stocked with towels. The beds were ok. The kitchenette was stocked with utensils and a coffee machine that was challenging. ( I won )

This hotel is a few years old so if you are looking for resort style plush, keep going. The rooms are nice well maintained and perfect for a stay on the beach. If you plan on spending your time in the room watching TV dont come here . If you want to wake up , open the door and stand on sand this is the place for you. Parking is tight but what would you expect 50 yards from the water. The hotels are packed in as tight as possible.

The pool is clear and sparkling the people at the desk were really nice and gave us some food recommendations that turned out well.

There are some places to eat and drink with about 3/4 mile walk.

We will come here again.

Room Tip: A beach side room is worth the few dollars more if you want to have morning coffee on the beach.

Great small place. Suite facing gulf was clean and the view was fabulous. Worth very penny. The staff was friendly and it sure beats the high rise condos that line the rest of the beach. It's off the main road and the places that are next to the inn are not the high rises. The kitchenette was nice and very clean.

The price is great. The location is on the beach. We had a two room, two bathroom suite. (Slept 8, one room double bed, second room 2 double beds and living had a sleeper sofa). They have a pool and a kiddie pool. Parking is horrible. Carpet needs to be stripped and get new. Their air conditioner are in the windows in front and back rooms. If you close the doors in the middle to where the two double beds were you smother. Bathrooms were clean. One of the toilet seats was broke. We asked for new room or new seat. Was told they were booked and the seat Was not in the budget. So if you didn't set just right you would pinch your booty getting up. We checked for bed bugs. Thank God that was fine. The kitchen had a stove, sink and refrigerator. I would recommend a cooler and disposable grill. They were nasty. Like they weren't cleaned in years. The kitchen table got soaked every time the room above us took a shower. Enough about the suite. To get to the pool you go threw the back door, under the porch (wooden with cracks) and threw a gate. Sounds easy enough. But at night there are two lights. So you can't hardly see. Every time the people above walks the dirt/sand falls onto you. The pool was nice. However the kiddie pool has no rails or steps to get in and out. You can't see because the only light you have is outside the gate around the corner underneath the porch. It's deeper than what you think and you fall in. Then scrape your knees to get out. The front office was hot. They needed to open the door/Windows to let a breeze in. Poor woman at the desk only had a fan smaller than my hand. ....... in the long run you get what you paid for. But something cheap you get something cheap. If we weren't so desperate and tired it wouldn't of worked. Everywhere was booked for the amount of people we had. The pictures are not updated. Must of been when they opened. Hope this helps! God Bless!
