Whale Watch Motel
Travel Blogs from Flagler Beach
We have been in St. Augustine for the past four days. The first two days were spent on the beach. The weather was great and the beach was quite different from Hilton Head. Way bigger beach and surf in Florida, we didn't let the kids get too far in due to rip tide warnings.
Yesterday and today we visited the historic old town of St. Augustine. St. Augustine is the oldest settlement in the continental U.S. dating back to ...
Today we went to the Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse built in 1887. Surrounding the lighthouse are the original keepers' dwellings with historical artifacts. ( a lot of the tools there reminded me of my Dad) We climbed 203 steps to almost the top of 165 ft Lighthouse and got to walk around the top balcony. Fantastic views of Dayton Beach area and the Inlet areas. David loved it especially looking over the edge....lol NOT!!!! I got some excellent photos, and it ...
Drove to Daytona Beach,no stopping along the way. Nice hotel, right on the beach front. After we got organized off we trotted to the beach for a nice stroll, and a play in the waves, then back to the hotel to lay in the sun on the recliners before having a dip in the pool. Gorgeous day not too hot and the ocean water was so warm. ...
... to his music, I admired the beautiful clear sky and brilliant galaxy of stars all around me. I got his attention on our new headset system and shared what I was observing. We both agreed that the brilliance would only get better as we traveled west on our journey. We rolled into Daytona at 11:15. We are so blessed that we have a great crew at Martek to take care of everything so we can take this time ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Whale Watch Motel Flagler Beach
Got flea bites
Stayed in one of the efficiency rooms at the Whale Watch Motel for our anniversary. The owners have obviously put a lot of work into trying to renovate the property--to say that it is rustic old Florida is an understatement!
While we were there, the wireless internet did not work, and there are no phones, so be sure to bring your cell phone. We also got a lot of flea bites and our small dog that traveled with us also got infested.
We love the fact that small pets are allowed, but owners should be told to have them on a flea program!
Very Relaxing, Friendly Owners and Staff
While not fancy, The Whale Watch Motel was very relaxing. The owners were really nice, and the maid was a sweetheart. Great location right across from the beach. Wonderful to listen to the ocean at night. We plan to go back.
We couldn't have been happier with our choice. The room was cute, clean & had an amazing view of the ocean. The staff was friendly & very helpful & attentive. They even provided treats for our two pugs that we brought along. The prcing was more than reasoable, too. We will definitely stay with them again.
Loved the Whale Watch
Hello, I just left the Whale Watch with my dog Jack. We loved it! Very clean and quiet. It was great to have my dog on vacation with me. I'll be back. Heather
This is a wonderful place!
I just want to say that our stay was the greatest. The owners, Pat and Barry are so warm and friendly and Maria was so nice. Our cottage was so clean and comfortable. We highly recommend this place. It was a nice quite place to relax. We had our little dog Samantha with us and they treated her like a little princess. She really enjoyed it there. We will definitely return for another vacation there.
The whale watch motel
I want to tell you how much we love the motel. We have been going there for four years now. I found it when I went online to petfriendlyhotels. We fell in love with Flagler Beach. We take our two dogs, a toy poodle and a mini dachshund. This year the dachshund died. But, she loved the beach. This year we have a new dachshund, who is going with us. I know she will love the beach, too. the Tiptons are so nice and the motel is great. We are right across the street from the beach. I love the beach because it is not too busy. The service at the motel is great and the people are, too. We will continue to go to the Whale Watch Motel in the future.

We Love it!
Welove it! Clean, peaceful reasonable and what a view-we keep going back!
Just married romantic
My husband and I enjoyed the Whale Watch. Clean,quiet and very comfortably affordable. A great view of the ocean and privacy.
Reminds me of Florida as it was . . .
This is the "old Florida" type place to spend an evening or a week. Clean, but nothing fancy. Old furnishings - comfortable and comforting. The ocean is right across the street; can be seen from your room. Affordable, clean, comfortable - I will stay there again.
Friendly, caring owners
What a nice, clean, comfortable place to stay. We spent the evening on the beach - just across the road. We plan to return.
