Travel Blogs from Flagler Beach
We had a great day touring St. Augustine, the oldest European city in the United States. We took the trolley around and really enjoyed seeing this beautiful city. Yesterday it rained all day but today was clear if a little cool.
Never knew that the history of United States really started here. This colony started before Jamestown. Ponce de Leon was not looking for the Fountain of Youth, he was looking for gold for the King of Spain.
We spent the weekend in Daytona Beach for the Daytona 500. The Daytona 500 is a 500 mile long (805 km) car race held annually in Daytona Beach, Florida. The first Daytona races were held on the beach. In 1959 the first race was held at the Speedway, which also coincided with ...

A note about photo 4 "Alhambra Jr." : Franklin Smith, a wealthy Bostonian, moved his lovely socialite wife to sleepy little St. Augustine in 1883 and set about building his fantasy dream house.

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.
