    Really great place! One of the last "Floridian style" motels in this area. Nice and big room/studio, very clean, great view over the ocean, nice pool, use of barbecue for free. Stuff was really very friendly and helpful (great tips for attractions, cheapest rental car etc.). No parking fee (at most hotels in this area you have to pay extra for parking), perfect location (30m to the beach and bus stop, beach bars and restaurants in working distance but far enough away from the highway-quite at night). Great value for money!

    the location was perfect, it was just in front of the beach and very close to all the restaurants and bars! we also enjoyed the nice garden and 2 pools. The hotel staff was very kind and helpfull.

    Very good

    On the positive side, the hotel is very well situated... a two-minute walk from the beach, has very comfortable beds, spacious rooms, very friendly staff and a delightfully lush and tranquil inner courtyard,

    On the negative side, the hotel is badly in need of some renovations, notably in the bathrooms. The first room they gave me had a badly backed up sink; in the second one, the fixtures were old and did not work very well. I had a very noisy fridge in the kitchen keeping me awake at night. Closets were old and dusty. Telephone in the bedroom did not work. I would not give this hotel three stars.

    This motel is great for the price you pay. The garden and surrounding are nice. You don't have the idea that you are surrounded by large hotels as the W. We had Ocean view from our deluxe room. The room was not that big and not luxe at all, but just perfect for our needs to have a nice holiday. We stayed 4 nights. The shell is from Sable Resort and has 5 motels in the surroundings. We thought the shell was the nicest.

    Only thing that i personally do not like is a plastic cover of the matrass

    Nice location. We enjoyed our stay very much. To make us feel better about troubles we had with airline, lost luggage, missed flight, etc. we were given an upgrade to a really nice room without asking for anything. Everyone was very welcoming and hospitable. Sure helped lighten the mood.

    Nice old motel

    Staff had problems getting us a cab. I had to go down the street and flag one down.

    i thought the rooms were really nice. the location was excellent just 1/2 block from the beach. the pool was refreshing and you could bbq by the tiki hut if you chose to. i would definitely recommend it to friends and family. i also would like to stay there again.

    Convenient location close to the beach.

    The rooms are very run down (a lot worse than the photos make them look.) No kleenex box, no trash can in the room, smells bad, looks bad, etc.

    Leslie, the front desk person was wonderful! She was hospitable, friendly and went above and beyond

    It is dated, could use some TLC. It is ok to be an older property if you maintain the charm. No charm at this propert

    Superb

    The location was outstanding. The price was reasonable. One block from the Ocean, One block from Intracoastal. 5 or so blocks from the craziness of Spring Break. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is an older motel, so do not expect modern facilities. It was clean. Will definately stay there again.

    The only thing that was slightly bothersome was the weird smell in the room. Bring Fabreeze and it will be fine. (hard to explain but anyone who has stayed at an "older beach place" knows what I mean) Would be much nicer if the doors were up dated as well as the benches outside each room. Otherwise, no serious complaints.
