Fodor's Review

As its name suggests, this small, friendly hotel is right on the beach. (Actually, it's between two beaches, so you can take your pick.) After changing hands several years ago and undergoing a major renovation, it's become a word-of-mouth favorite among budget-minded travelers. With solar water heaters, repurposed furnishings, and energy-efficient air conditioners, it strives hard to be green. Rooms are well-appointed, with flat-screen televisions, local art on the walls,

and refrigerators, but still fairly basic, as befits the hotel's beachy, laid-back atmosphere. You won't want to miss their popular oceanfront restaurant and bar; you can sit on the deck and watch the manatees, or relax in a more protected area to enjoy the sea breeze.
