I had a great stay at the motel in November. I went to fish. Access to the beach was fantastic, just outside the door with no road to cross. The surf was towering, but that was not the fault of the hotel owners. :) Yes, the water was stinky, but that has to do with the municipal water supply and...

Faucet broken. Indications show apparently for a period of time 2- Electrical extension cords being used in place of hard wiring for the...

right on the beach this updated old florida style hotel is great to surf from during the day and watch turtles lay eggs at night. The rooms have tile floor since it was impossible to keep out all of the sand. Pizza joint attached to the Hotel was very good as well.

We stayed there for one night during spring break, that was terrible when we went in the bathroom, the tap water is stinky, didn't dare to use the water to brush our teeth. Can't really open the bathroom window, it was broken! Only have a quick shower, can't stand the smell. Although we closed the bathroom door when we sleep,...

The Motel is in transition with friendly and hospitable new owners. It is older, but very clean and reasonably priced. Situated on a beautiful private beach. With all the plans for updating by new owners this hotel will soon be a gem by the sea. Kind enough to bring extra towels and whip up a delicious pizza after hours.

At first we were a little worried cause we thought that all motels are a nightmare but we have to share with everyone that when we pulled up we were pleasantly surprised how nice and quaint the place looked and got even better when we were greeted at the office by Karen who let us check in early. We absolutely...

This place was great. Off the beaten path, so not alot of folks fighting for space on the beach. Water and sand were beautiful. The pizza was pretty good. The room was clean and had everything we needed. Close to everything. We would definitely go back. *Not sure what's up with the bad reviews- there were no bugs and the...

First of all the lady that checked us in took our money, said "is that all"? We said " yes", then she said, "Then get out"! Very rude... You can't see the ocean from the rooms like the video says. There is NO water pressure in the rooms. Not even enough to get the shampoo out of you hair. The...

Surfcaster has it all. Friendly staff, Clean rooms, beach front, pet friendly and outstanding Italian food. A peaceful atmosphere added to down home hospitality makes this place special. Haven't seen this old Florida charm in quite some time. Highly recomend.

My husband, I and our 2 dogs stayed at this small quaint and cozy motel for a get away weekend from our hectic life in Orlando. We stayed during Memorial weekend and wanted to avoid crowds and heavy traffic. It was a easy drive less than 2 hours and a very comfortable place to stay for a short weekend trip....
