While we did enjoy the Sandbar, the rooms were very low quality, including linens, bedspreads, carpet and setup.

Thank you, Victoria, for your invaluable feedback! In all fairness, your comparisons between our products that of a Motel six is not quite accurate. Motel six guarantees the lowest price-We do not. Our prices fluctuate based upon our market, the season, and occupancy demand; as do the rates of every hotel in the country. And finally they are a chain- where as we are privately owned.
I cannot agree with your comment, “low quality” regarding the room furniture and carpets as we literally just finished upgrading the entire hotel. New carpet was just installed in every room in the resort. Every piece of furniture in the hotel is new, solid wood construction and was anything but cheap. We just replaced the televisions in the rooms with 37 inch flat screens; some of them even received 43 inch televisions. We repainted. Even the light fixtures, linens, mattresses and pillows are new. All this was completed prior to your stay review in February.
All of these things having been said and taken into consideration, it seems we were still unable to meet your expectations. For this I must apologize for it is of utmost importance, to our entire staff, that we exceed your expectation. Our staff here at the Inn takes personal pride in our new rooms and the efforts we personally put forth as a team in order to ensure each of our guests ultimate in satisfaction.
Thank you again for your valuable feedback.

We decided on a getaway weekend to see 80's band the Fixx at Capt. Hirams Resort. We chose a room on the river adjacent to the venue. The view from the room was fantastic. We couldn't believe that we were only 94 miles from home(WPB). We were with our good friend and felt like we were in high school again. What a fantastic place to get away with friends and let your hair down. Highley recommend this place, we will definetly be back again for fun and music....

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the river....Dolphins playing in water 50 ft. from balcony.

Thank you for your invaluable feedback! Your review was very complimentary, the dolphins were extraordinarily appreciative. We, the team here at Capt Hiram’s, love to hear from guests like you whom make the hospitality industry so rewarding.
We agree! The Fixx was amazing! They were just as good, if not better, than they ever were in the 80’s! Be sure and keep an eye on the entertainment calendar on our website. We regularly book national acts, some of them are really surprising to see here in sleepy little Sebastian.
We look forward to our next opportunity to serve you as our guest, The Hiram’s Team
Cheers!

We had been traveling from North Carolina and stopped at this hotel by chance alone to sleep one night, the attention was excellent so we decided to stay another night. This hotel has a bar-restaurant on the banks of Intercoast in which every day presents live bands, by chance the weekend showed the band The Fixx, so we decided to further extend our stay, and from that moment to this day (5 days later) we can say that these days we have spent here have been excellent, we have enjoyed to the fullest!
Special thanks to Jonathan Starratt and his team for having attended a special way and have made ​​our stay was so enjoyable.
It is a great place to spend a few days! a calm and relaxed and the nights have different options to have fun.
Good choice for skydivers because the hotel is 5 min at Skydive Sebastian and have preferential rates for skydivers. :)
Thanks to all! Back soon ... Miguel and Aleka, from Venezuela!

We decided to getaway for my birthday and had always wanted to go to Hirams. So we gave it a shot. It was an amazing weekend. The view from the riverfront room was fantastic. so tranquil and just what I needed. Loved sitting on the balcony watching the dolphin, ducks and pelicans play. The only downside to our stay is the paper thin walls. There was a family on either side of us and I dont think that they were intentionally being loud, however we could hear it all. So mental note, next trip I will bring a portable fan to produce some white noise and block out most of the neighbors! Besides that one issue, it was fantastic. The staff was super, bands were awesome and it is centrally located to walk (or stumble) just about any where! Thanks for a great time Captain!

Room Tip: Ask for an end room and bring your own white noise to reduce unwanted neighbor noise

Thank you so very much for having taken the time to send us your feedback. We are most pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Although our buildings, including the enterior walls, are insulated concrete block construction sound can reverberate through them. Thank you again for staying with us! We look forward to when next we can serve you as our guest.

We stayed at Captain Hirams the day after Thanksgiving 2011 on a trip visiting family. It is a great place to sit back and relax. The restaurant and bar were alot of fun. We enjoyed the entertainment and the food. We enjoyed it so much we brought back our kids and grandkids for dinner the following week. Thanks Capt Hirams, we will be back again.

I stayed at Capt. Hiram's Resort in Jan. 2011 and again in Sept. 2011. When
you are traveling along historic U.S. 1 instead of I-95, this beautiful place
comes as a surprise. It is a lovely motel with another complex with rooms
on the river. You can walk to their great restaurant overlooking the river.....good food & good
entertainment every night. Reasonable rates. Pool was great in Sept. -
not sure about Jan. (if it was heated?) Even though I live in Florida, I plan
to return to Capt. Hirams's soon for just r & r and a beautiful area to explore.
Check it out!!

We had stayed at Capt. Hiram's many years ago and decided to give it another try. This time we stayed in one of the riverfront rooms, and the view couldn't be beat. There is a big picture window overlooking the Indian River Lagoon with its abundance of shore birds on the wing. The room also had a private balcony that provided a wonderful place to just sit and relax. The room was your standard hotel room, but the bathroom was large and had a few little extras. The two bathrobes provided were a nice touch. The main reason for us to stop at the Captain's was the wonderful SandBar. It is such a great place to sit and relax with your feet in the sand. It has the ambience of the Keys combined with the Old Florida feel of Sebastian. It really is nice to sip a drink, listen to music and watch the mullet jump in the lagoon, truly a little bit of bliss.

Room Tip: Riverfront rooms have a great view.
