Room was clean, but well worn over the years. Owners have painted it cheery and bright.
Porch chairs were the best part- to watch the wind in the palms at night, sigh.
convenient location to beach, food and pretty quiet 0f traffic noise.

Candy directed us to good food and set us up well for a late arrival.

Lots of signs in the room (don't take towels to beach, how much each item in the room is worth if you decide to take it, that it will be $50 charge if you do not take your trash to the garbage dumpster) that made me feel like a landlord would take my cleaning deposit. For the price of a night, that was why I ranked it only average.

We had everything we needed for both us and our pups. The beach and restaurants are just a short walk from Laughing Horse. We really enjoyed our relaxing evening on our porch in January, who can beat that? Thanks for providing a welcoming place where we can bring our dogs. We wouldn't be able to enjoy the beach without them.

We just got back from A Laughing Horse lodge and it was great. The room was comfortable,clean, and well stocked for our stay. It was great to have a place where out 2 dogs felt comfortable, Great location, able to walk to the beach, restaurants, shops and golf cart rental shops. Will recommend to friends and am also planning next trip.

Our second stay with Laughing Horse. This occasion was in celebration of our one year wedding anniversary. Lodge #8 is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath with a full kitchen & small dining/living room. Colorful, clean & cozy. Even tho the weather had taken a turn for the worst (rainy, cold & windy) it was nice to curl up on the futon & get in some good face time & TV time. Located just a couple of blocks from the beach, eateries & some specialty shopping, the laughing horse is a special place. Enjoyed, thanks Candy & Ray - see you again, but maybe in the summer next time. The Filla's.

Room Tip: Lodge #8 is located in the middle of the complex, great little 2 bedroom, 1 bath with full kitchen...
