The hotel is as it was in old Florida. It is a quiet, friendly place in a relaxed atmosphere. If you're looking for parties and night life, this isn't the hotel, but those things are a quick walk, drive away. I've been here three times in the last two months and haven't been disappointed once. True, if you require luxurious, resort like accommodations, this isn't the place, But if you're looking for someplace that sits on the beach, the gulf a 20 second walk from your hotel door, dog and kid friendly, then this is it. As is the case with any old Florida hotel built in the late 40's, some things will occasionally not perform as expected but the overall aesthetic of the place is entirely worth it. I will come back again and again!

My husband and I visited for four days in October 2010. The bed had no blanket, only a comforter and no extra pillows. Our neighbors had three dogs that used the grounds for a toilet. Noone cleaned it up.The property needs to be refurbished. It was clean and quiet but the bed was uncomfortable. The beach was lovely!

i am a florida cracker, and this place IS Florida.Built in 1949, I step back to the places I went as a kid with my parents.Favorites; Pecky Pine ceilings, sea oats at your window and a beach to stay another day on.Check out the sunsets, they are killers. Prt=friendly. on the beach and in the waves. LET THE DOGS OUT.this is the keys, at 1/10 the distance and cost. Make it happen, and you will be back. And stay another day.
