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.

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.

... amp; it lasted over a century. Rebuilt in 1830's it has been battered by numerous storms. In 2001 & 2008 tropical storms caused considerable flooding so in 2012 they started constructing a new reinforced wall. We are seeing new construction all down the coast as man tries to hold back nature! We listened to a program on the radio on Global warming predicting South Florida to be underwater in 200 yrs - so it's a good job we visiting ...
Yesterday started out badly for me. While doing tear down my chair wheel caught the hose and ripped it and the hookup from the trailer - again! Then, to add insult to injury, my chair got caught in the mud - again! Nita had to haul the handy dandy mats over to get it out.

... with a small wall or wrought iron fence and some even have benches. There are a few above ground mausoleums with stain glass windows, but the grave markers from the 1800's are the ones everyone comes to see. They are works of art, and in this setting, they look like time has stood still with soft Spanish moss veil draped over everything. It was not creepy at all but quite peaceful and serene. Now at night, with the fog.....probably ...
