The name is correct. This is a Dive. There is no way that this motel is worth $50 a night. $20 would have been a better rate but this might have been too much. The room was terrible. Ratty and torn bedspreads on the beds. There was a blanket under the sheet to cover up the stained mattress. Horizontal Venetian... More

I Just called in to inquire about how many rooms my Marines could occupy for we just had a fellow devil dog pass away. The guy who answered the phone at 21:24 January 26, 2016 was completely disrespectful and so nasty that I am writing my first ever negative review. I sure hope the management of this hotel fixes this... More

I was offered a discount for paying cash which I did but never received a receipt. I went to my room and was horrified. It was right out of Dateline. The first thing that got me was the smell. It was like the room had flooded recently but they never really took care of it. It was musty and moldy... More

I wasn’t expecting too much really. Small town, small motel. This place didn’t even reach my low expectations. The Steamboat Dive Inn. Purportedly both a dive shop and a motel. The first thing I noticed from the outside, was there had been some renovation since the last time the Google car came by. There was a new roof. Was this... More

Called for information. Man on phone was extremely rude and evidently did not want our business. Would not give information about availability beyond next couple of weeks. Would not listen to my explanation or questions, and was extremely condescending.

Rotting overhang covered the double we got. Inside the room was dirty, stained sheets with other people's hair left inside. Roof leaked to the drop tiles and mold was in places. This motel needs renovation or to be leveled. Avoid at all costs.

Unfortunately I will have to pass on the Steamboat Dive Inn The picture posted on trip advisor is not the Steamboat Inn in Branford Fl and the real Steamboat Inn is not a Bed and Breakfast. It is a very dilapidated strip motel. As a motel it was a fail. After diving the springs in the area, we needed our... More

What else can I say? At $50/ nite!! What a joke. At $19/night, it would be barely tolerable, but ONLY if you take clean bedsheets and disinfectant with you!
