8/10 Very good

Give this place a chance, it will grow on you!
Very old hotel in desperate need of a complete over haul, that being said we would definitely stay there again. The hotel was built in the 1930s and the nostalgic experience and the amenities along with the view more than make up for the room.

Great stay for a single dog mom.
Could have not asked for a better solo trip with my dog. Being a single dog mom traveling can be hard but this place was perfect for us. We will be back.

Too run down for me
If you like unique old time Florida motels this might be your place. I usual prefer older places with some character but this one was just too run down. Everything was very run down and not very clean. The sliding door out to our little patio didn’t work on one side and the only way to lock it was a piece of wood in the track. The sink was cracked and a bar in the tub was just a loose piece of PVC pipe that moved off you grabbed it. The TV was very hard to work and the remote didn’t work well so to watch TV you had to get up and press a button on the TV. All that being said the staff was super friendly and helpful and we loved sitting out on our little back patio overlooking the Marina. Having boats and kayaks to rent right on the property was great but the weather didn’t cooperate for us. Overall the patio was great and the staff so friendly but the room was very sub par.

6/10 Good

Room had a very distinct musty smell and was very old and carpet stained. Bathroom also very old and patio door needs to be oiled as it was very difficult to open. The location is great, the restaurant was also good, we also were told we would have a king bed and the room had two separate beds in two separate rooms. Would not stay there. Again.

Nice getaway!
The hotel is older like the other reviews said, but still very comfortable. The view was really nice and the bed was wonderful. The restaurant had really good food. Had no trouble renting kayaks for the day. Would definitely stay here again.
