We love the El Mar Area and it is so hard to get a nice place at a reasonable price. We were 2 blocks north of the Pier and right by 2 Beach Portals so it was easy to get to the water. Maria went out of her way to make our stay excellent and she succeeded! We were only... More

My husband and I found this place online and called to book it. Pictures online looked ok, but they must have been 15 years old. Maria, who we spoke to and checked us in was very nice, but the place was very old, run down, dirty and not what it looked like online. The price was high for the shape... More

My family and I have been staying at this motel for years, specially for spring break or Independence Day weekend. We usually get about 3/4 different rooms. We absolutely love it here. At the end of the day, you get what you pay for. But the privacy they give is incredible. The pool is amazing.

I was so pleasantly surprised by this place. Yes it's old. But our room was immaculate and there was plenty of room for two adults a child and two dogs. They do have tiled rooms (just a handful) that are rented to pet owners. But above all, the owners were friendly and responsive to all of our needs. And if... More

I have had the worst most violating experience with this hotel. They gave my personal information from my check-in and name, address, phone and credit card info to a friend of the hotel employees. Do not go. they will violate your privacy. Ruined my vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This facility is right accross the quiet street of El Mar...so much quieter than the places on A1-A. We could sit on the front porch in afternoon with beautiful view of palm trees and ocean.

This place is very dated. The furniture is gross and in bad shape. The mattresses were atrocious. We booked a one bedroom apartment and arrived to find one king bed, one twin daybed, and one fold-out couch bed. They all smelled bad, just like the entire unit. The day bed was so worn that it slanted to the side and... More

“We stayed on the ground floor front Room 3n and it was excellent as there was a ramp for the luggage! The morning sun came right in and you can see the beach I don't know if there is an elevator so ask for a ground floor! The Resort is old but it is maintained really well and is super clean!!!”

“Ask for an updated room if available. I think some in the back are in need of renovation, and pet rooms may smell. If you have a pet, you get what you may deserve!”
