Pros: proprietors seem nice. Rooms are clean with comfy beds, large screen TV, fridge, & microwave. Reasonable price. Cons: this property REALLY needs updating: the AC works, but is noisy & ancient. The appliances are thrown together in some sort of central area with a homemade plywood shelf for the TV electronics. Summary: if all you're looking for is a... More

We have been staying here 4 times a year for 9 years and the stays are always great. The beds are more comfortable than the Ritz. Big flat screen TVs. Free wifi. Fridge, microwave and late checkouts. Daksa is so friendly and rates are great.

We stayed at the motel for dive certification at Vortex Springs. Older style motel with older facilities. It was good for our weekend stay, just to lay our heads down after an exhausting day. Serves the purpose, but could use renovation. Inexpensive at $59 a night though there is a $20 up charge for more than two people.

When I called the hotel we were headed to in Destin, I found out I booked it for the next night AND everywhere there was full! As fast as I could find a place to stay online, the exit came up and we were there. The Manager checked me in and was very friendly. We were all amazed at how... More

Stayed here two nights with daughter while she was doing her open water scuba certification dives at Vortex. This is a good location as it is maybe 10 minutes to Vortex. But it is a motel stuck in a time long ago. I am a kid of the 70's so I know of what I speak, Ok for $55 plus... More

So happy I found this little place! I was driving back to New Orleans (with my dog) after visiting family in St. Augustine and decided to split the trip in half as I was traveling alone. This place is exactly what I needed: safe, very clean, so quiet and it had a nice comfy bed, a fridge, CNN and a... More

They were so nice. We booked at the last minute, and the manager on duty (Lililjian, I think) was super helpful. The suite we got had two rooms and two bathrooms which was super convenient. We got an easy parking space at the meter out front which is free from 6pm-9am. Quick walk to delicious dinner and bakery at Cassiss.

My husband and were looking for a place to get away for a couple of days to rest and de-stress. Considering that this is the only place in the area, we were pleasantly surprised. While not fancy, it is clean, quiet and staffed with very accommodating and friendly folks. And the price was right, too. If you need a place... More

The rooms were very very clean. I have been in a lot of the regular chain motels and these were the best. Large flat screen TV, king size bed, mini fridge, microwave, everything we needed and the room was priced way cheaper than any other. The staff was awesome, always with a smile and anything you may need was promptly... More
