This lovely vintage postcard is unsent, although the Curteicolor dating lists it as a 1957.
It appears the motel is permanently closed now and has been recently torn down (to be replaced with another godawful condo). Google listed its address as 18555 Collins Ave, Sunny Isles Beach, FL 33160. Here’s an image, pre-demolition, from Google which shows the shape of the pool:
A recent description online states: “Condo-style hotel on the shores of Miami Beach. Golden Nugget Beach Club is set directly opposite Sunny Isles Beach and minutes from the Bal Harbour shops.
The hotel is a classic Miami Beach style pastel and flamingo pink building and offers standard as well as efficiency units with views of the garden, pool, and ocean. The pool is a vintage free-form pool with a large sun deck and faces the beach. A shuttle is provided for shopping and site seeing destinations.” Yelp and Google reviews were not as positive.
