Right on the shore beneath the beautiful South Beach Park, this small, unpretentious resort (read: coin laundry) with a relaxing seaside outdoor lounge area has loyal guests who book a year in advance for rooms that are simple but have conveniences like full kitchens. Ask for Rooms 125 and 126, which have balconies overlooking the beach; most others face the parking lot. A few good restaurants are within walking distance, and it's a short drive to the plethora along Ocean
Drive. The area by the beach is quite lovely with a small pool, two shuffleboards, tiki huts for shade, and plenty of beach chairs.
