Spent one night during short visit to Ft. Pierce. The hotel location on the water is nice but rooms without water view are just OK. The rooms are quite large and nice to have full size refrigerator and microwave. The air conditioning is quite noisy. With a bar and grill just

I apologize that you were not informed when you made your reservation that we no longer have fishing on our premises. Our 58 slip new Marina, which we hope to have open soon, does not accommodate fishing. Of course, there is fishing at the end of the Inlet that is approximately 1/2 mile from our Resort.

How far are you from the beach?
The beach is a15 minute walk or so. That beach is very busy. In 5 to 10 minutes, you can drive to a number of parking areas with facilities.

what is the difference between the suite and one bedroom, what size beds and do they both have sitting areas like a living room?
We stayed in the building across the street from the main motel. We had a separate bedroom with king sized bed, bathroom, living room, small dining area, small kitchen. Very clean though dated. I called the office/front desk to have my questions answered before booking. They are very helpful and accommodating.
