Older style hotel, but extremely well kept and the owners/staff could not have been sweeter or more accommodating. Would stay there again without a doubt. You can tell they have really gone out of their way to make it as nice as possible including privacy fences, landscaping around the pool, a grill and the fridge, microwave, hairdryer and coffeemaker in...

We stayed for only 1 night. The ownership demonstrated attention to detail. They were congenial and attentive to the needs of these guests. They answered the phone promptly (even at 5:00 am). We were comfortable in our room. There were no objectionable sights or smells. Our neighbors were a little rowdy on this particular Saturday Night but the management can't...

This is an older Florida style motel. Small rooms but clean, well maintained property. Right on 41 Alternate so noise intruded at times. We only slept here and for the value this is good. It is not a Florida vacation motel but we understood that.

This was a very nice hotel. It was very clean, and the staff was very friendly. It is centrally located to many places, and very close to Venice beach. We would definitely stay here again. A very "homey" hotel away from home.
