After trying to find a nice beach hotel or owner rental,we got a offer threw a trip advisor as we were driving back to our FL home in Safety Harbor. I booked 2 rooms over Easter weekend 2017. The hotel is very well maintained the owners are freindly and work xtra hard to make sure your needs are taken care to enjoy your time there.We found the rooms clean the staff great plenty of parking

Room Tip: We had a double queen and a king both had sleeper sofa xtra clean room/pool

Small Motel, Very clean and comfortable. Management very friendly and attentive to guest needs. Pool is amazing. Stayed two nights. Double room first night ( partial kitchen) and Family room ( Sleeps 8 with a full kitchen) for second night. During our week of traveling around Florida, Best place we stayed. Will stay again during future trips.
Cost of rooms really reasonable especially considering the level of service provided. Management takes pride and cares about their business. Location was great for day trips to beaches and downtown area. On a busy road but had no problems getting in and out. Other family stayed at hotels on beach ( for double + the cost) which were no where near as clean and well kept as this facility.

We stayed for only 1 night. The ownership demonstrated attention to detail. They were congenial and attentive to the needs of these guests. They answered the phone promptly (even at 5:00 am). We were comfortable in our room. There were no objectionable sights or smells. Our neighbors were a little rowdy on this particular Saturday Night but the management can't be held responsible for their behavior. So I won't ding them on that negative factor. We would stay there again.

we were very pleased, the room was clean and neat, everything needed in the kitchen, beds were very used and sagged some, but were clean. the pool was amazing, the staff warm and friendly. its in a good area with lots to do nearby. The only thing I would suggest is the rooms have not enough mirrors, the extra bedroom was very dark, as a matter of fact all of it was dark, need more lighting and no mirror and with 6 ladies in the room.. awful. please add more lights and more mirrors.. oh and the shower was hot but very little water pressure. it took forever to get shampoo out of hair.
