We are used to staying in "Old Florida" style motels so were well aware of the pros and cons of staying in these old properties. The pros: very helpful owners, across from the beach, clean rooms, even providing an old sheet to cover the bed for the dog!; away from the main drag so not as busy. The cons: still...

I am so happy we found the Whale Watch! We spent a few days there and can't wait to go back and do it again. The owners were so accommodating. I wanted my husband to get the Florida experience that I had when I was growing up. The Whale Watch provided this and more. Our room was clean and comfortable....

A year ago we spent $1800 to stay one week at the Hilton in Melbourne. It was beautiful but actually we spent very little time in the room. Thiss year we stayed at the Whale Watch. Obviously the comparisons are few if you want luxury in your room. However if you like your host to personally stop by each day...

We stayed in one of the cottages and we found it quite comfotable. We called the night before we arrived just to check on the size of the coffee pot. Those little 2 cup pots just wouldn't cut it for us. We were assured the kitchens were fully equipped with a full size 12 cup coffee maker. There were filters...
