Great little RV park. We use it every time we come through this area. It's very clean and well kept. It is a gated park. The people here are very friendly. Most of the sites are large and most are pull throughs. They have full hook ups including 30 and 50 amp electricity.

We made a reservation to stay here because the location was right for us and we were traveling with our cat and needed to be sure of having pet friendly accommodations. The room rate of less than $50/night had us a little concerned as to what we would find when we arrived. Much to our surprise I will have to...

Pedro would be so sad to see this iconic hotel slowly falling apart. I used to take my children when they were small to SOB so many times on our travels from FL to NJ. I was hoping to start this tradition again with my grandchildren, but this is not to be. I stayed in Room 109, and the hotel...

At least once a year for the past 7 years I stop here on my way to Maryland. Each time the elevator to the sombrero has been "closed for service". It's a running joke with many people who stop here. That was a huge part of visiting years ago and is clearly neglected as the rest of this place. Even...

I've driven past here at least a hundred times. It's the half way point between home in Florida and family in N.J. The signs on I-95 are entertaining and last for like 150 miles. I finally couldn't take it anymore and had to stop for the night. It was everything I thought it would be.. Magical! A great adventure. Made...

We stayed at this campground next to the South of the Border roadside attraction January of this year on our way north from Florida. We stayed again in August of this year returning from vacation in Florida with our RV. The staff are very pleasant, we had a wonderful campsite. They are in the process of upgrading the facility. The...

Our family took a trip to Key West Florida. This is a modestly priced place., The location of the model is at the right point to stop for the night - restaurant within walking distance - would stay there again.

I've never had a back to the future experience before but this might have been my 1st one. On a long and tiring trip up the east coast we stopped at SOB to spend the night, I felt like I was back in the 70's again with the medium brown paneling everywhere and the fake brick chair rail behind the...

This place is a sham. Their brochure advertises luxurious rooms and they are in reality outdated and smelly 60's themed rooms with no air conditioning. The staff put us in "the last available" room with no ac and when we complained were told that's all they had and would not issue a refund. Im six months pregnant and slept in...

Stayed one night the room had a dead cockroach on the bathroom floor. Restaurant was bad. But we did stay the night. The real problem was that the hotel charged my credit card four times for the room. It took from May to July to clear up this matter. I called the hotel but they never responded to my call....
