I went down in June to see some friends and it was the best hotel that I have ever stayed in. I walked every where and went to the beach and pool daily, I highly recommend this hotel. And the Staff are so sweet and nice as well.

The hotel is in a good location a short walk to the beach. Our group had two suites and a standard room. The suites are roomy with reasonably well-appointed kitchens and the common areas are clean and inviting. They have excellent wifi that gets good reception even around the pools. Our only problems were with front desk service -- the... More

We stayed for 9 nights at the Winterset Suites and let me tell you, don't let the neighborhood fool you. We came in really late for our first night there and was pleasantly welcomed by Darryl, he was really nice and helped us get a better room right of the bat. We stayed at a top floor with a fully...

I do not recommend this hotel. The Winterset is three full blocks from the beach. The grounds are very nice and landscaped very well. The rooms are very dated, but mine was very clean. You get a lot of space. You get a TV in your bedroom and in the sofa room. The problem is not very many channels actually... More

My recent short getaway from Latrobe to Fort Lauderdale was short and sweet (suite). The Winterset was, for me, an ideal choice of accommodation. If you are wanting something reasonable, in a less hub bub area, near to the beach (2 blocks) and restaurants this is the ideal place. Clean, airy, lovely soft décor with a small, full kitchen and...

LvmjV, Charming - we'll take it! What a nice way to describe The Winterset Hotel. We'd like to add on 'convenient' as well, especially with the shuttle service you mentioned and the beach just a few short blocks away! Thanks so much for your review. See you soon! More

The hotel was dirty and in disrepair. The bed was the most uncomfortable I've ever slept on. The pictures on the website are old and do not represent the current conditions at this overpriced "hotel".
