Places to Stay

There are a lot of places to stay and a lot of different kinds of accommodations. There are overnighters while we are traveling and there are some which are destination points with a lot of amenities.

Here we will try and discuss some of the more fun and economical accommodations we have located in our travels.

So we chose a Vero Beach getaway for our first real trip after the great Covid-19 scare of 2020. Actually, it was not a real getaway as the restaurants had not opened for sit down dining and some of the places we wanted to go were not yet opened. But never fear, we'll be...
Down in Nokomis is the Gulf Shores Beach Resort Motel - this is not your typical lodging. We found it a delightful throwback to old Florida in many ways. The Motel To our delight, Gulf Shores Beach Resort actually boasts dual waterfronts. There is a private beach along the Gulf of Mexico and a...
When looking for the best hotel in Fort Myers beach, it may be more like the best hotel for the money. We have generally stayed at the Edison Beach House. I can tell you, there's very little wrong and a lot right with that place. This time, we decided to look around and see...
When traveling, our eternal question has been - what is the best hotel value where we are traveling? Should we look for a quaint boutique hotel or stick with a chain operation? In the past, we have had great stays at great little boutique places like The Sea Spray Inn at Vero Beach, the Inn...

And that includes places to stay.   However, we have started to find locations in some of our favorite spots that have become go-to options. That is, places we have found that we can count on. Reliable choices for dining, exploring or lodging....
We were on one of our many forays to Florida's Atlantic Coast when we came across Waldo's at the Historic Driftwood Resort. Located in Vero Beach along the beautiful Treasure Coast, it was a wonderful experience in more ways than one. We first wrote about Waldo's Restaurant & Lounge in our blog about...
So we first tried Dimitri's on the Water in Tarpon Springs last November when we were there for Thanksgiving. This time however, we were staying off site as we'd been invited to a reception for the Tampa Boat Show. With all due respect, we didn't want to stay in The Big Guava - and Tarpon Springs is...
I must say, the Retreat at Crystal Manatee is one of the most comfortable and accessible lodgings we've found since we started traveling. We literally were two blocks from Kings Bay and only a few more to the Crystal River Historic Shopping District. Plus it had great creature comforts In addition, the Retreat at...
We have stayed at a couple of Best Western Motels in the past. There even were a couple of former Best Westerns that had been converted under the Baymont flag. For the most part they were OK, but in the long run were not that great. Our stay at the Best Western Plus Ambassador Suites...
Those who follow us know we like to explore the Sunshine State for the fun and funky. However, sometimes we just want to take a safe Florida vacation where we have some old favorites and don't have to worry. Such was our last foray over to the Gulf. We booked a couple of nights at...
