It has pool and beach services. Pool restaurant was good too. Service at front desk was friendly. You can do self parking or valet parking both...

I stayed at Sea View with my husband for a week during spring break. You can tell when you walk it that it is an older hotel because the "old" spell about it. I have a relaxing week because it was only partially booked. There are two bars in the hotel, but they are small and do not have to...

Pros: Pool and beach are nice but hard to relax as atmosphere very strange. Probably due to the 2 beds only rule, no food or drink , no running, etc etc!!!!. Rooms ok, dated but the price is ok. Cons: You will be treated well as long as you are one of the elderly residents who live here sometimes and...

We absolutely love this amazing hotel! Classic hotel from decades gone by. Beautiful lobby, Tiki bar, amazing pool with cabanas, beach access, everything you could want! The restaurant has a lovely outdoor area as well. The rooms are quaint and cozy. Total relaxation! We highly recommend putting this on your "must do" list of best hotels to which to stay!

This is a hotel you have to write about. From a frequent traveller to Florida who has stayed ata number of hotels, this is the most unique. First it is truly a mom and pop hotel. The requirement for employment is drawing SS. This does not give you the most amiable of hosts and as you will see in other...

Not so modern but well kept and maintained. we asked for a room with sea view and they fulfilled our request. Hotel has outside pool and playground for the kids, and provides easy access...

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for three days and I have to say this hotel was great. It wasn't overwhelmingly fancy and it was far from a mediocre experience. We had great service, the pool had warm water for the baby and the beach was just steps away from the hotel. It had a beautiful view so I...

The Sea View is a nice, not too over priced, older resort on the beach north of Miami. The hotel is nice, nothing special, but nice. It could use some updating, but is good for the price. The location is pretty much perfect.You can walk out to the beach and take advantage of the use of chairs, towels and an...
