My husband and I have been here several times, they are dog friendly and not fancy, but very clean and accommodating. Barry and Patricia will go out of their way to help you out with anything you need. We always borrow their "used" beach equipment and towels so we don't have to drag all of that with us on our...

We stayed here the first week in August, it was our first time and we rented a cottage next to the pool. We loved it there and actually cannot wait till we can afford to go back. It is a tiny place and the owners Barry and Patricia are so sweet. We wondered if we could get a dvd player...

Great for a couple like us who just wanted to sit on the beach for the bulk of the long holiday weekend. This would be a good place for a budget minded family too because of the kitchen facilities. The only thing that would have made the kitchen better would be a dishwasher. Good place to take your kids to...

Older Florida, seashore rust, Clean room, quiet south end of town......count me in. I have stayed here several times and hope to many more. Flagler County is great! My dog thinks so too. Please hold onto what this town is (and isn't) as long as possible. Thank you guys for cleaning the rooms and linens with 'friendly' cleaners that leave...

This was our 9th year at Whale Watch Motel. It's like a magnet that just keeps drawing you back. It is old Florida...no theme parks or high end hotels but if you got to Flagler Beach then you drove there and if you want the theme parks you can drive to them. The motel is kept very clean and Barry...

I've stayed at Whale Watch before. Once alone and once with my husband. This time, we decided to go away for the weekend with our kids who are 14 and 17. We were going to do an efficiency and then decided to try out the cottage. Our two dogs came along for the trip as well and we figured that...

I loved the location of this place. Perfect for a naturalized quiet beach experience. No extra amenities. However evrerything you need. Great service and very pleasant. Older buildings and fixtures but all working! Ill be back.

Quiet little cottages across from the beach. Close to shopping and attractions but away from all the hustle and bustle. Owners are very nice. Nothing fancy or extravagant but sufficient. It is pet friendly. It was nice to walk across the road onto the beach and watch the meteor shower. I thought the price was a little high but it...

Just returned from a wonderful vacation in Flagler Beach Florida and stayed at the Whale Watch Motel for 6 nights. If you want fancy smancy, this is not that type of place. It has a weathered look to it and the owner told me this when I called to make reservations. I was pleasantly surprised with the cottage we stayed...

Dated, but clean. If you're looking for "Fancy", this isn't it., but for Clean sheets, towels, fresh coffee in the room....with an ocean view at a very reasonable price this is it. Beginning to need some cosmetic and functional repairs, but it's American owned, cleaned every day, and with a view that's great. Nice folks who own it and service...
