Reminiscent of the motels of my childhood except cleaner and with an updated 'beachie' decor. Front office very welcoming and helpful. The rooms were clean...sheets soft...no perfume smell in rooms...just a totally clean smell. Handy for fishermen with boats. Can't beat the price! I would stay here and recommend it to others.

You have to expect retro it kind of has the 60's-70's feel. My wife and I loved it and will be back. The motel was quiet and our room was clean. The owners were hospitable and gave us some great advice on where the best places are to go scalloping. Also there's a fish cleaning station with a refrigator behind...

The room we stayed in was quite small. However it had a full small kitchen. The bathroom was very small. The person that checked us in was very pleasant. Although the rooms could use some updating, the room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Would stay there again if we are ever in the area.

We were in the area to explore real estate possiblilities in both Panama City and Cape San Blas, so this location was perfect.

If you are a child of the 60's you may have stayed at motels just like this one all over Florida. The charm I found here was parking right outside your room door, immaculately clean room, and a place to park our 24' long pontoon boat with a wash down hose. They even provide clean rags to clean your boat!...
