    Great place to stay. Brought my husband for a surprise getaway for our anniversary. It was vintage Florida. The owners were very welcoming, helpful and super nice. The rooms were playing in the bed was extremely comfortable. Wi-Fi was good

    So glad you and your husband enjoyed your stay with us. This is one of a few vintage hotels still operational. We do our best of keeping it as original as possible but with modern conveniences.

    We love this motel. It is a little gem with old Florida charm. The owners are wonderful and make you feel like family. The rooms are clean and well equipped for a long or short stay. We can't wait to return!
