I have stayed here many times and love this place. My husband and I usually come over for a couple of long weekends in a cottage every year since we don't live too far away. I was looking up some other places on here and realized I had never left a review for the WW, and decided it was time....

Stayed at the WW last week for three days. Wife and kids (2 and 5 yr olds) We loved it. Beach was great and private. Pool was just right for my kids. Very nice people beside our cottage from Idaho. My kids first real experience with the beach and they were happy as pigs in slop Barry and wife were...

After reading some of the reviews, I, too, felt I had to add some words - definitely of praise. We are Canadians who have been going to Whale Watch for about three years, Unfortunately ,we have been unable to go the past two years but not because we haven't wanted to. I agree that the motel shows some wear and...

I've stayed here years ago and this time was even better! We stayed in a cottage close to the pool(perfect for the kids). It was very clean and the perfect size for our party of 3. The kitchen was well supplied. We borrowed beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards for a very short walk to the beach. The beach was...

My boyfriend and I "planned" a trip to no where in particular this past weekend - we live at the beach in Jacksonville so we just wanted something different. Not having a destination made for an interesting weekend: After beginning at the Tomoka camp grounds & deciding that wasn't it, we headed up A1A & decided Flagler seemed like the...

I stayed at the Whale Watch on the week-end of June 5, 2009 with my daughter and her two children ages 9 and 10. We had a standard room which we loved (room 5). I had requested a microwave and there was one in the room when we arrived. The refrigerator was the perfect size and there was a coffee...

The Whale Watch is the perfect place to get away from everything. We were looking for solitude, peace and quiet, a laid back environment with friendly locals and THIS IS IT. Even the OWNER was laid back, peaceful and quiet. He was so friendly, we invited him in for a Corona and a lime! Perfect host. We called ahead to...

We stayed at the Whale Watch for 4 days and 3 nights last week and really had a great time. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable even though it was a queen and we sleep on a king at home. I usually have an allergic reaction to products used to clean motel rooms and detergent used on...

I stay at the "Whale" every chance I get when I am visiting in the area. Where else can you walk for miles and have the beach all to yourself. Where else can you open the door and watch the sun rise over the ocean practically in your lap. Laid back with lots of privacy and room to roam along...

WhaleWatchMotel, Owner (along with the bank) at Whale Watch Motel, responded to this review

These guests (2 adults, 2 kids, 3 dogs) booked a cottage for a Friday and Saturday night. They arrived 9:30 Friday night, were shown their accomodations, and said they would be fine. They did not complain or voice any concerns. We normally close our office at 9:00 but received an urgent message on our phone system about midnight. We returned...
