Punta Gorda, Florida
Reviewed 27 May 2016

I never stay anywhere else since I found this place. the rooms are bright and clean with a beachy decor. The staff is awesome, friendly, helpful and always accessible. The location is perfect right in the heart of times square. The room rates are reasonable. Jaye is awesome, very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

Old Florida style motel. Great place to dock boat and can see from room if you're concerned about that like my husband was. Jaye accommodated that request for us. She was great!

We stayed in probably nicest room and it was ok. The whole place needs maintenance. There are things that may be unsafe (telephone jacks with exposed wires, electrical boxes sticking out of the wall, I believe our room at termites). The area needs to be cleaned everyday (outside area, by the docks). It has so much potential, but did not...

We are truley disappointed that you did not enjoy your accommodations. We do try hard to keep the rooms and property clean and well maintained. We have plans to demolish some of the older rooms and have plans to upgrade others this summer! Termites are a real struggle in S.W. Florida, they are a continuous battle. Thank you for your...

We stayed here this last week of April. Very affordable, less then 3 min walk to beach and had a premium room overlooking lagoon. You get what you pay for.
