About the property

When All You Need Is a Nice Room in a Great Place in Sunny South Florida...

Lake Worth's premiere boutique motel, the Scandia Lodge is a charming 22-unit retreat just seven blocks from downtown Lake Worth and one mile to the beach. The heart of this 2-story property forms an L-shaped courtyard overlooking the beautiful pool, patio and tiki hut, hedged in by 14-foot ficus, providing privacy, serenity and great place to relax.

You certainly can get away from it all when relaxing here... but when you're ready for adventure, 'all' is also just a stone's throw away. Shops, restaurants, pubs, bars, kava bars and hookah lounges are a 10 minute walk... the beach and boardwalk casino are a 15-minute bike ride our 5-minute car ride. I95 is just a mile to the west, where it's a 25 minute jaunt to Ft Lauderdal and 70 minutes to Miami. West Palm Beach is 10 minutes straight up Federal Highway.

Whether you're looking for nightlife, sun in the fun, arts, culture, sporting events, street festivals or shopping, you're near it all in lively Lake Worth. Yet, at the same time, at the Scandia Lodge, you're as off the radar as you want to be.

Each room is individually furnished and designed with a personal touch. Each room includes a mini fridge, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker... so it's perfect for quick and easy breakfasts and lunch at your home away from home. Or step out to the patio and use our community grill. Or walk 10 minutes downtown to a wide array of fine and inexpensive restaurants ranging from French bistros to fine Northern Italian cuisine to an Australian Pub, homemade Mexican tacos, Thai food and more.

Free wifi and cable TV are part of the package. Plenty of off-street parking and there is a coin laundry on premises. Plus our friendly staff will make you feel like part of the family and will attend to your requests to try to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

About Pax Management

I first visited Florida in 1977. I moved here 15 years later. Every time I came, I was astouned by the weather, the palm trees, the beaches, the breezes and how those things just changed the pace at which you moved. Lake Worth is a gem in South Florida. The houses in its neighborhoods are individual, with history dating back to the early 20th century. You won't find gated communities or many cookie-cutter developments in this town. But you'll find artists, ex and nouveau hippies, bikers and just a ton of interesting people who apply themselves diligently to enjoying their lives.

Pax Management purchased this lodge in 2012

Why Pax Management chose Lake Worth

The courtyard, the courtyard, the courtyard. Look at the pictures and you'll see what I mean. Come and say and you'll experience what I mean.

I had a guest once who stayed on the 2nd floor overlooking the courtyard and pool and he said it reminded him of Thailand, from where he had just come. It's green and peaceful, the pool is inviting, the fountain creates a soothing backdrop sound and the tiki hut provides a great place to sit and chat with friends or chow down on what you just cooked on the grill.

But It's not all about the courtyard. The rooms are charming too. Each has its own identity. It's not a 'branded' experience but more like being very comfortable as a guest in someone's home.

We hope you'll consider it your home away form home when you're in South Florida and that you'll come back to us when you're in the area again... as so many of our guests do.

What makes this lodge unique

Great location for downtown, the beach and quick jaunts to larger cities... from Fort Lauderdale to Miami. A very relaxing environment, friendly staff and charming accommodations make this a great place to unwind and have fun.

  • 5 of 5

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The place was nicely kept and it was a cozy stay. Very close to the downtown area by Lakeview ave. I would recommend to friends. I am still waiting on my $100 refund. Hopefully that comes back into my account soon.

This is a motel. There were many people hanging out in the breezeways. The receptionist was great and the room was clean but be aware that you are skirting the edge of the rougher part of Lake Worth.
