Last minute decision. Everyone was very helpful. Very well maintained! Great location. Lots to encourage outdoor fun! Pool, pool table, horseshoes, across from the beach. Towels are nice. My cousin has been going for years. So have most people that stayed this week. Shame I needed to leave early because of the hurricane .

Just came back from a 5 day/night stay and I will definely go back. The motel was very clean and well maintained, The pool was immaculate and the beach was very close. They had washers and dryers and a clothes line to dry towels and suits. The maid service was great. Book early as this place is popular!

This is our second year at Imperial 500 and we could not be happier. Everyone is very nice. The rooms are very clean and functional. The property offers a pool and games that my kids love. Location is excellent, just across from Centennial Park and short block to the beach. This has a great family atmosphere and highly recommend.

I have booked a room here this week due to a cancellation they had. I read all the reviews, (which are all great) and couldn't understand why they were #1 for the last 3 years and now are #12.

I stayed for a week in mid-July. This was my 6th time visiting the hotel. As always, it was a great stay. The rooms and grounds are super clean. I stay in an efficiency room, which allows for some cooking, which I really like doing. Although while on vacation I enjoy eating out, I don't like telling my kids to... More

I had previously reviewed this motel, and just wanted to add an update. Besides the friendly accommodating staff worth mentioning is the care & pride they put into their business. I had forgotten my bathing suit, and called Jackie later that night. She was able to locate it, and mailed it right out to me. We don't have a lot... More
