Sandpiper Motel: Skip the Roach Motel!

I hate to relive the memories but....for you, anything ;)

My dad, brother and I went down here quite a few years ago when I was in high school. My dad has a way with planning vacations: He doesn't. So we go down there on the last weekend before school gets out. Any rooms available anywhere? Not a darn one.

Therefore, we end up here. It was a bed...As is the case with all motels, right?

However, I swear I saw bugs here.

It's right beside Stewart Beach if you wanna go. There is also plenty of beach on the left. You can walk to the beach.

Offer hostel rooms.

The Stacia Leigh Bed & Breakfast: Floating Bed and Breakfast

The Stacia Leigh is a floating bed and breakfast right next to the 'Elissa' and the 'Texas Seaport Museum'.

The boat is a 120` Staysail schooner which was built in 1906 for Louis Renault, a prominent French businessman who also invented the Renault automobile. 30 years later it was sold to an Italian businessman Count Galeazzo Ciano of Livorno, Italy, who married Mussolini's daughter, Edda. When he was killed in 1944, the yacht was then owned by Benito Mussolini. Mussolini and his mistress were killed in 1945 and the yacht was then brought to the USA.

The yacht has appeared in Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang, Seven Cities of Atlantis, The Count of Monte Cristo and the S.S. Commodore.

It was purchased In 1998 and underwent a total renovation which included adding eleven staterooms with ensuite bathrooms (including jaccuzi bathtubs with showers). There is a huge salon and dining room, sitting area with t.v., hot tub and 3500 sq.ft. outdoor two level observation deck.

The poor reviews were right: Flagship Hotel

My husband and I stayed for three nights and four days. He had always wanted to stay there, and despite all the negative "tips" we read about this hotel, we chose to give it a try. The staff and front desk were wonderful. Too bad the room wasn't. It had a very old and stale smelling mattress and carpet. The smell of the mattress made it hard to sleep. We bought some room freshener/spray to help there. We had to ask for a fan because the room temperature remained a "sultry" 78-80 degrees! We appreciated the free breakfast and the awesome view. This place could be heaven with some MAJOR upgrades. I do not recommend this hotel in its present state. We will not return until the owners make some renovations and get some new mattresses. The hotel needs a deep cleaning, too. What a difference some steam cleaning of the carpet and sanitizing of the newer bedding would make, and it would not break the bank. It's a shame that this once awesome hotel has come to get a poor rating. On a scale of one to ten (ten being a fresh-smelling room with good air-conditioning and a comfortable night's sleep) this hotel gets a 2.
