Hubby and I stopped in Avon Park to spend the night. We originally checked into another hotel. Drove down main street and for The Hotel Jacaranda. It was beautiful! The other hotel wouldn't let us out of the night rental(bad deal) We went ahead and got a room at this beautiful old hotel. We took lots of pictures. We would... More

This hotel was built in 1926 and is on the National Historic Register and you really get an idea of the elegance of these early days of traveling. The large lobby welcomes you and the staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a quirky original elevator that requires staff assistance to use, which we did when we checked in;... More

If you are OK with historic all the way, including not having a state-of the art bathroom and room facilities and are happy when things are clean and the staff is friendly, you'll enjoy this beautiful place. Especially the lobby and the restaurant areas are old Florida all the way. Rates are reasonable, even for Sebring weekend. My one complaint... More

The Jac as they call it, is a Historic eccentric hotel. If you like experiencing different, and not run of the mill hotels this is for you. I love an occasional old world environment, and this is it. Huge lobby with high ceilings, polished wood. Desks to read at, with shelves of books to take or leave. An old time... More

Once you realize this palce was buiilt in 1926 you begin to accept that you are staying in 1926 facilities. The staff is super friendly. Great service from the front desk. The rooms are very small, there is no bath tub. There is a shower that has a head that is tempermental at best. The TV is a CRT at... More

This was a wonderful historic hotel. The help was very friendly and were always there to help if you need it. The elevator was a very interesting piece to the hotel. My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Jac. We would stay there again if we are in the area. Great alue.

We stayed here for the first time this weekend (all of the Sebring hotels were booked for some reason), and were thrilled! The property is a real slice of nostalgia, and the rooms have been renovated/repurposed to make two of the old rooms into one suite (the old configuration had two rooms sharing a bath located in between.) The beds... More

We recently stayed a night at the Jack, a 1920s 3 story hotel located on Main Street, a few blocks east of US 27. This place was a big deal in it's time, and it still features old school charm not found in the chain hotels. Several reviewers have mentioned street noise, so we requested a room in the back....
