Enjoyed our stay at a classic "old Florida" place. The nicely updated room was large and comfortable. Great place to dock your boat, the public ramp was within sight of the dock. Would definitely stay again and bring extended family for a group getaway.

They were extremely nice and accommodating. We were going to be arriving after the office closed at 6 and they unlocked our room prior yo closing. Also, the room was extremely clean and comfortable. We definitely recommend staying here!

We came to swim with the Manatees and do some kayaking. We found this little lodge in the perfect place for kayaking. You can leave right from the dock and be with the Manatees within a few minutes.

Clean, everything we needed in our efficiency room. Convenient location for kayaking in the bay (call Hunter Springs Kayak to deliver kayaks and paddleboards right to the hotel!) Walking distance to restaurants. Perfect for our family stay.
