The location is fantastic. This hotel is very old and needs A LOT of work. It smelled a little musty. They have a restaurant on site (Margarita Breeze) which is very good. Food was delicious, service on the first night was good, the second night was not so good. Great view of the bay. There are boat rentals on the...

The view from our room was beautiful. The room was decent, little outdated but we didn't spend enough time in the room to matter. The tiki bar was fun, it does get a little loud a night so if you have kids you might want to request a room away from the bar. It was worth the money to stay...

We booked there twice. The first time we have a good location with good views The room was not that great but it was clean. We decided to go back again and booked several weeks in advance. We asked for a first floor room since my wife and I both have trouble with steps. We were given a room that...

Wait until morning! We checked in late at night and I was very disappointed when we went into our room. It needed paint, had some cracked wall plates and a moody florescent light. After a good nights sleep - in a VERY comfortable and clean bed, we went out to see where we were. It was a perfect spot! Right...

This is an old Florida hotel that has not been maintained well; however, the location is awesome, right on the river with a marina. The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable. They are also pet friendly which is always a bonus! Come for the location and the opportunity to swim with the manatee!!!

I booked this online because it looked like such a great place. Got there around 2pm on Sat. and there were drunk kids everywhere...the end of spring break. Waited to check in while the young girl trained another young girl. Got my key...room was ground floor at the end of a dirty alcove. The room had a door and window...

Price was reasonable. Could use a paint job and furniture is old. Beds are comfortable and view is great. Restaurant on property is good and reasonable. If you want fancy you will not be happy. If you want clean basic room with a great view. Book here. Definitely would book again.

Spent 3 nights here last week. The location, views of the water, staff, and sunsets are all great! The steps to 2nd floor rooms are old wooden and made me nervous with my elderly family member. We saw a couple of manatees right at the dock each day but i think the masses are gone for the most part for...

In all honesty, yes the property needs some maintenance both inside and outside but the rooms are clean, the side of Building A facing the water is brightly painted, and it's not the worst place we've stayed. Building A has the best views but stay in rooms 1-5 if possible as #6 is right next to the restaurant patio and...

Cordial front desk staff. The ONLY reason to stay here is to use the on-site ramp, IF you brought a boat. Clearly the marina is their priority, NOT the hotel. Shabby furnishings and decor are from the 50's and never updated or replaced. Serious lack of maintenance and upkeep (electric switches not working; heater/air-conditioner not working). The bed was comfortable...

“Building B is directly overlooking the marina. Great sunsets! Oldest section, so the building is NOT in the best of repair.”
