Friendly staff;Great location;Excellent breakfast included;Nice fishing pier;Moody 1950s atmosphere and1950s music;Excellent restaurant menu;Nice waterside sandy esplanade(not really a beach)great for sunbathing and nocturnal stargazing; Use of outboard motorboats available for fishing included in the price;Plenty of pillows;Nice jacuzzi and pool.
Rooms(at least ours)urgently need cosmetic surgery,specially the bathroom(rust-stained fixtures and long dead insects on top of the shower enclosure);The AC could barely keep up even if (noisily)working non stop around the clock;Decor dates from the 1950s and appears original;Restaurant menu prices extremely high,at Coral Gables levels(making us avoid eating there);The motel was probably top notch circa 1958 but now looks run down and not in my opinion a $150.00 a night hotel,even with the included features;With a good remodeling and updating it would be a great place again ;At this time I must have reservations about recommending it as not good value for the money(I can get a Hilton on Cocoa Beach for $100 a night at this time of the year
The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. I would recommend staying here.
Keep in mind that this is not a luxery hotel. Families, those seeking relaxation should stay here. I would consider this hotel as "old Florida".
The room and location were great the fact that it included the motor boat was a plus.
These are not complaints but suggestions:
The beach, but the wind was blowing 30 mph from the East the days we were there and we could not use any of the items offered.
Our room was under the kitchen that was in operation until 10:00 pm and opened at 7:00 am. Was very noisy. also the fan did not work in the bathroom.
On the beach location, use of motorboat, kayaks and pedalloes.
On arrival, charging us another $100 on top for taxes.
Driving motorboats to the riffs
Very cute, old timey-Keys and very tropical and relaxing. Boats included with package.
It wasn't until after I booked the reservation that a 15% gratuity was added and the only way to "get out of" the reservation was with a 35.00 cancellation fee. Never told of the 15% fee prior.
Relativel nicely located directly on the beach, easy to find
Pretty worn out, not in good shape, not clean at all, sometimes shower, TV and Toilette didn't work
The boat that comes with the room and the onsite restaurant also the location.
