“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

The owners Serge and Alma make you feel very at home! The motel is across from the beach and about 10 mins walk from the main beach. All guests were super friendly. Facilities are great; nice pool, laundry if you need it. Close to restaurants. You can get a shuttle from MIA, and it's only 25 mins to FLL (with traffic). Will definitely be back!

Dolphin Motel is a cute accomodation in Pompano Beach, a very short walk from the beach (you basically just have to cross A1A). Rooms don't have that cookie-cutter design style of all these chain motels ... instead it's a house with some personality at very affordable rates.

The motel has a nice outdoor sitting area and a pool and they offer different types of accommodations: Hotel room, small efficiency, large efficiency and apartment.

We spent 3 nights pre-cruise in a large efficency room - and we loved it. There were two large beds, a fully equipped kitchen and a small but sufficient bathroom. Everything was very clean, the staff was extremely friendly.

Lots of dining and shopping opportunities in the area as well (for breakfast I recommend Dandee Donuts on East Atlantic).

One minor point of criticism: Air conditioning was rather noisy, so we turned it off every night.

I found Dolphin Motel a very good choice in Pompano Beach. The motel is clean, very near the beach (you can go by foot), even the chapeast room has a refrigerator, toaster, forks, plates, cups, glasses, everything that you need. The wifi works nicely, there are parking spots in front of the motel and Alma, Serge and Elizabeth are very nice, doing their best to help us. Overall it was a very nice experience and the price is good, I am sure I will return.

I spent time in the apartment with the balcony. The apartment was immaculate and the balcony was refreshing. I love this place. I have a second business trip coming up and unfortunately the apartment was not available so I chose the Large Efficiency Room. I look forward to my stay.

We obviously like the dolphin as we have stayed here every year for 15 years. It is neat, clean and conveniently located across the street from the beach and near shopping. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Love our dolphin vacation

We had some friends from Georgia staying in Pompano for a week at the Wyndham Sea Gardens. We live in Florida and wanted to drive over for a 1 night-2 day visit with them. The Wyndham had a 2 night minimum and was over $200/night so my wife and 15 yr old son booked the Dolphin Motel next door. It was perfect. The room was VERY clean - the staff (French Canadian owners) were very friendly. Close walk to the beach - great price ($75) - nice quiet location.

We stayed at the Dolphin Motel for two nights and three days while participating in a off-shore kayak fishing tournament. The location of the motel in relation to the pier was very close. The hotel is an older one, however the rooms were refurbished quite well and immaculate. The staff was comprised of a husband and wife with two young children, they were very pleasant and hospitable. We very much enjoyed our stay and would certainly stay here again in the future.
