This is not a fancy place, but great location for the beach. The staff are super nice and helpful-definitely a plus. I think the location and staff make the place.If you are taking a boat out to fish, it would be perfect. It is also a nice key to bike around.

From the instalations (depending the room) you have direct access to the bay o to the sea (or you have to cross a street and walk few meters). Laurel is a very nice a quiet place (al least in February). They are working in order to improve rooms, I hope to back in summer!!

We have stayed here before and would not have gone back but I saw on line the start of renovations by the new owners so we took a chance. Cons: they wanted to charge $10 per person for visitors in 1 vehicle (2 adults and 2 children) thought that was a little steep! Just to park a car, we went...

New owner is doing a great job with new decor/renovation to these old stucco cottages. We were in a one bedroom cottage not completely renovated yet, but close. Cute with alot of potential and a nice gulf beach. Waterway in back of some with screened back porch make you feel you are camping out kind of or at the lake....

We stayed here for a few days after Christmas. Most rooms are being renovated. We were in unit 11 on the inter coastal side. Nice screened in porch to watch the boats go in and out. Short walk to private beach with some lounge chairs. They also had a few other chairs and umbrellas for the guests. Check out the...

We stayed in "The Boat House" and the panoramic window view form where the bed was positioned was incredible. This view is what you pay for. However, the place needs desperately to be updated. EVERYTHING needs to be updated. The murphy bed wasn't very comfortable yet that would have been fine if the gap between the head of the bed...

We stayed here Friday & Saturday night for our anniversary. While initially booking the Waterfront bungalow, Renae was super helpful with helping make our anniversary a little more special. I paid extra and she was able to set up the room with some champagne, flowers and chocolates. It was a nice touch. When we arrived, it was located directly in...

The location is excellent. Our room overlooked the intercoastal waterway and was just a few steps from the beach. The initial room left a lot to be desired. Very dated, cabinetry and furnishings seemed delapidated. The TV was ancient. We were moved the next day to the room we were supposed to get initially. Efficiency kitchen seemed adequately supplied for...
