Loved the retro look off the hotel...Beds could of been a little better than they were

The motel was interesting. Love that it was steps away from the beach. That is why we booked it. But the motel needs some TLC. You have the retro look, but it still had a dated feel. It really needed a clean retro paint touch up.

I like it’s retro vibe, the location being steps from the beach and the friendly staff. There was no breakfast due to Covid-19 precautions and the coffee in-room is not good. There were some sketchy-looking guys ( homeless?) by the pavilion close to the motel. Otherwise I enjoyed my stay, very relaxing and just what I needed to recharge my batteries.

A unique older motel, has been updated but rooms alittle small. Very well located close to beach, Publix grocery store, and fishing dock. Unforunately, our room had a pipe leak, but we were moved to an upgraded room asap. We did not have breakfast service or a daily cleaning service due to the recent covid-19. But clean towels, soap, etc., was readily available by asking. We are an older couple and the beds in both rooms were very comfortable...which is important to us. Also the a/c worked well. Our first visit to Magic Hotel, but we plan to visit again.

Old school decor and neon lights. Super close to beach and walking distance to Publix. Clean pool.

The room had a strong smell which took over an hour to air out. The AC unit blew cold air on the bed all night and could not be stopped. We killed several roaches while watching tv. The only good thing is that it was a short walk to the beach.

Very close to beach and a great laid back retro style

This is old style motel from rhe 60s. Very clean and friendly staff. 200' to the beach. 1000' to the pier and beaches restaurant

Very close to the beach and a grocery store. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was a little tight but not a problem. TV picture wasn't great, but why watch TV when the beach is a one minute walk away?

Staff was very friendly and helpful. I loved the location and the room was spotless.

Thank you for writing a review and for staying with us. We have a great retro look with all the neon around the motel. Built in the 50's and maintained well. Hope to see you again.
