    Cute with nice pool
    Clean and comfortable room. Quiet. Nice pool and grounds. Nice staff. Includes continental breakfast. Cable TV was still down after hurricane but wasn’t posted on website. I would recommend this motel for budget minded guests.

    It was nice.
    The room was nice but my toilet was running also the room service never came by I didn't get fresh towels. Other than that it's a good place for families.

    It was ok...was run more like if we had rented a house then a hotel. There were tiny teash cans and we were expected to take our trash out. I at least expected our bed to be made while we stayed but the ONLY thing they do is change your towels out!

    Wonderful place to stay.
    We loved our stay at the Shark Reef & we are looking forward to staying again. The beds were comfortable & the pool was awesome. Located right next to a really good Mexican restaurant. We loved our stay.
