We spent two weeks at the Whale Watch with our three Golden Retrievers and had a wonderful time. Our cottage was comfortable and clean and our hosts, Barry and Pat, were wonderful. We felt like we were staying with friends. We met several people while we were there and have kept in touch. It is so nice to be with...

Yes, the cottage was fine but the grounds are terrible. Everything is dead. There are old rusty appliances near the laundry room just sitting there, painting is peeling on all the buildings, screen doors are missing or have no screens, weeds and dead plants everywhere; it's a wasteland! Then there are these short concrete cylinders in front of the rooms...

This place was simple, relaxing and a great value. It exceeded my expectations. It looked kind of dumpy from the outside, but inside, the rooms were clean and functional. The bathroom was a little bit small, but it had a good kitchen. This was the perfect motel for sitting on the beach and doing nothing.

My Husband and I have been visiting the Whale Watch on and off for five years. Everytime we visit, whether we are with family or just the two of us, we are always greeted with a smile and anything we need is just a moment away. We are a family with many dogs, at one visit with our entire family...

Our weekend away in January was really great. The weather was stormy, the ocean was rough and we loved every minute of it. I loved my walks with my dog along the beach and feeling the sea mist on my face. I really needed this relaxation to restore my soul. We found the Motel to be very very clean with...

This is a singular experience that you will not get at any hotel chain or resort. The Whale Watcher keeps alive what everyone dreams of having in a vacation. But first you have to give the city of Flagler Beach credit for creating an opportunity such as this. As I was told, there is a city ordinance that prohibits structures...

Again another great stay at the Whale Watch. Me and my wife have been going there at least two weeks out of every year for the past six years. The rooms and service are fantastic. The owners Barry and Pat couldnt be any more pleasent. A quite beach with friendly people is what everyone needs now and then and this...

I've been back from Florida for a couple of weeks. I went with another middle aged woman and we met up with a woman from Florida. We wanted to let others know of our stay at the Whale Watchers Motel.
