Fodor's Review

Husband-and-wife team Cristie and Marc Furth run this quaint Mexican-themed motel across the street from Lauderdale-by-the-Sea's family-friendly beaches. Lattice fences, gurgling fountains, and gardens of cacti and impatiens provide privacy around the brick patio and heated pool. A palm-fringed Mexican-hacienda look predominates, with guest quarters boasting hand-painted and stenciled furnishings, and terra-cotta tiles.
