The room itself wasn't terrible, it was spacious, had a kitchenette, bedroom with 2 beds and the living area was a decent size. Even for being a beach hotel though, it was pretty rundown. The carpets are literally threadbare, and there is an old cigar smell, that was truly awful. This motel is in need of more than a new...

What a wonderful place to stay, staff here are all great Maria the owner, our house keeper Suvada could not have done more to make our stay great.

We have been going here for over ten years and it is wonderful. You are steps away from the Gulf and the view is spectacular. Marie, the owner, is adorable and hardworkingand her place is immaculate? Sometimes there is a waiting list to get in , but it is well worth the wait.

We have been going here for years and every time we go it gets better. It is very well maintained and beautiful. The grounds are lovely and always immaculate. It is our home away from home. I have a Down Syndrome son who loves it here and everyone makes him feel so welcome. We have met some wonderful people here...

Very, very clean Florida-style motel. Most guests are over 60, and I think that's how everyone prefers it (very quiet, which we also prefer). Guests come year after year and are very friendly. The staff is wonderful, and Maria (owner) is very helpful and accommodating. Already booked for next year!

Stayed here for a week very clean and quiet room. Close to John's Pass. Walk out to beach from your room and enjoy the wonderful sunset. Plenty of food choices near. Enjoy the nice walkway by the beach lite up at night. Owners were very nice. Would definitely stay here again.
