We were here two nights on a family visit. An interesting older property run by a welcoming and helpful staff. Coffee in the morning in the garden patio. Convenient to restaurants, causeways to the beach. Our room was clean and functional, included a large refrigerator. The down side to the property is being across US1 and the railroad tracks. Because...

Thank you for your kind review. I particularly enjoyed our "coffee talks" each morning. The central location in Lantana and the closeness to the Intracoastal and Atlantic Ocean does afford our guests a unique opportunity to walk to many quality restaurants featuring a virtual cornucopia of cuisines. Easy access to the bus system, Tri-Rail and airports does allow many of...

This is a genuine Motel that gives off that South Florida Vibe without being too cliche'. Rooms are clean clean CLEAN. I'm used to staying in resorts but I couldn't ignore the good reviews and great value. One of the most coziest hotels in South Florida. Highly recommended.

Well, where do I start? This is an old but very clean small motel. It is on a busy main road with railroad tracks nearby. The trains run all night. My husband loves the sound of a train, but it kept us awake. The air conditioning is a wall mount unit that decided to make a horrible noise in the...

This definitely reminds us of motels back in the 50's. It is not fancy, a truly plain-jane, but it is clean and we felt "like family". William and Paul are delightful, as are the lady's who clean the rooms. There is a young man who takes care of the property both inside and out, as well. There is a little...

I stay here whenever I'm in the Palm Beach area. It's always the same price and usually available. Don't stay here if you are expecting more than a motel. This place is clean and premises are safe but it is not fancy. All rooms have a fridge and working AC. Plus they have free WIFI. Oh, and there is a...

We had a family efficient room which is small but acceptable at the rate they charge. The staff and owner, who is available at all time, were very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, shower was small and the Internet spotty. Ocean Ave., which is steps away, is a great area for dinning and late night strolls. You do...

I was staying for one night and booked this motel because of the low rate. I was pleasantly surprised. From other reviews I knew there would be a train passing occasionally. My room faced the outdoor deck where coffee was available in the morning. The grounds were colorful with an assortment of flowers and yard art. The bed wasn't great...
