This cheery beachfront hotel is located in a residential area between Holmes and Bradenton beaches, a one-minute walk away from the free trolley that goes across Anna Maria Island. Cedar Cove's grounds consist of tropical gardens, stone walkways, umbrella-shaded patio areas, and, best of all, a private beach area, which has a bamboo tiki hut, barbecue grills, and rows of turquoise lounge chairs.
All 19 of Cedar Cove's large apartment-style units have full-size kitchens, and some have ocean views. Tiki On The Beach is as sweet and simple as it sounds. The no-frills budget inn consists of two low buildings connected by a breezy brick courtyard, with a small fountain, a Weber barbecue, and swaying palm trees. The 11 apartment-like units are comfortable and well-maintained; all have free Wi-Fi, kitchen facilities, and separate living areas, though some bedrooms are a bit cramped.
The inn backs onto a beautiful sweep of white-sand beach, where free loungers are set up the hotel also provides beach towels for free. Lying between a quiet canal for boats and the Gulf of Mexico, this casual condo resort inhabits six tropical-garden acres on famously serene Sanibel Island. The resort takes its coveted real estate seriously, employing a full-time horticulturist who carefully identifies and leads guided tours around the grounds. The property's botanical garden is such a draw that even non-guests come here to explore.
The garden grounds face stiff competition from the white-sand beach, which is one of the best shelling beaches in the world. The scenic rolling dunes of St.

Augustine 's Vilano Beach serve as the front lawn for this charming, cottage-like hotel. Its 16 rooms are cute and quaint with pale blue walls, white linens and curtains, and private ocean-view balconies furnished with wooden chairs -- those on the top floors naturally have best views. Rooms go for more than most budget properties, but their kitchenettes can help defray the cost, plus they come with free hot breakfast, Wi-Fi, and parking.
The old-fashioned bicycles with baskets parked along the perimeter of Coconut Inn are perfect signals of the charm found throughout this beach-cottage property in St. More evidence: Coconut's inviting brick courtyard features not just a fountain and palm trees, but also a gazebo, porch swing, and -- the kicker -- a modern outdoor kitchen for laid-back barbecues. Speaking of cooking, there are kitchens in all 11 rooms studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments , which also have views of the beach, gardens, or heated pool. Don't overthink the word "resort" here: Windjammer Resort , located on a sandy public beach in Fort Lauderdale , is more like simple apartments on the beach than a full-service hotel.
Its 33 units come with kitchens, dining tables, and flat-screen TVs; most rooms have furnished balconies and some have ocean views. One of the two outdoor heated pools has direct ocean views. The beach location just one block from Anglin's Square and its picturesque fishing pier and low rates draw families, seniors, friend groups, and partiers, and the vibe is fun, but not out-of-control spring-break style. Nothing at Wright By the Sea could be described as modern, but that's just fine with nearly all of the guests who stay here.
