WOW!!! There are truly not enough words to express my delight with The Hotel Jacaranda! We race, and we do it as a group, a large group! I am responsible for finding accommodations for our large group at each location we venture to. Our race was scheduled for March in Avon Park. I started my search for rooms right around... More

This place has definite charm and a fantastic patio area. Where my stay fell short was the tired old squeaky bed, the cleanliness of the room, lack of outlets (the 1 plug in bathroom didn't work) my bedside lamp was burned out and I was let down when we discovered that the game room is "not for hotel guests".

The bathtub was so dirty that they moved me to a different room. The beds had pilling on the sheets and the carpets were filthy. We were in town as vendors to the orchid show the same as race week and charged 178 per room. The manager told me sheets and carpet were on order. Not much sleep in that... More

The Jacaranda is an old hotel and restaurant with lots of history and is a little off the beaten path (in Avon Park). The buffet, which was primarily seafood, was average. The service as adequate. The night we went was well attended and all seemed to enjoy.

While visiting friends they took us to the Hotel Jacaranda for lunch. We had a twenty minute wait and sat in the Lobby. Old Hotel fixed up nice. I was amazed at how narrow the halls were. They have a buffet that was not only good but hot. We're going back for a sleep over that will be in another... More

A group of us went for a pre concert dinner to the jacaranda. Not normally a buffet style diner I was a bit apprehensive. The restaurant was large and airy and packed!! Sodas and tea and coffee are served no alcoholic beverages, we were able to choose from the extensive buffet which included soup, salad, fried chicken, ribs, fish, mash... More

We stayed at The Hotel Jacaranda for two nights and it was like stepping back in time. Upon entering the 1926 hotel the atmosphere was amazing. From the beautiful hardwood floors to the tall ceilings and the manned elevator, you felt like you were in another world. The desk clerk was fantastic and what a sense of humor, we just... More

Our family hosted a party at this hotel. The staff was friendly and accommodating. They allowed us to decorate the area that we were seated, and the food on the buffet was fabulous. The rooms are comfortable, but don't expect them to be modern. Overall, this hotel will take you back in time to a simpler, friendlier era.

This place is a hidden gem in Avon Park Fl. Clean, friendly, charming and way better than any chain. A double cost us $59.00. An upgrade to a suite is $85.00! If you a there on Sunday do try the buffet. Best fried chicken I've had in ages. Highly recomended.
