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.

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
