The Dolphin Inn is located on a lagoon (where we watched the dophins frolic every day) It has beach access located directly accross the street. The trolly stops in front of the hotel, The gardens are lovely and well kept. The pool is large, warm and clean. Inn keepers Travis and Jennifer do all they can to make guests feel... More

CUSTOMER SERVICE My husband and I are serious travelers, who travel many times a year, always looking for the best bang for our buck. We researched on the Internet extensively and felt the Dolphin Inn was a good match…come to find out it was expansively beyond our expectations! We had exceptional communication via Internet with the owners- married couple Travis... More

This is a nice "old fashioned" motel with a good location across the road from the beach. The owner is very friendly and accomodating, and tries hard to make your stay pleasant. I would highly recommend this property except for the fact that we got the front apartment which is in pretty poor condition. We're talking "Salvation Army" furniture and... More

We travel the world and always depend on trip advisor members. Thanks for not letting us down. Just as all the previous reviews said: great location, WONDERFUL staff; beautiful pool, comfortable rooms; right across the street from a great beach. " Lots easy to drive to, and much easy to walk to". There is NO WAY you could get a... More

If you are looking for egyptian cotton sheets, this is not the place for you. If you ARE looking for clean rooms, great location away from the hub bub, the best owner ever, and a beautiful pool...this is the place for you! The rooms have kitchen facilities are extremely clean, what a beach resort should be. Close to convenient stores,... More

I read other Tripadvisor reviews before chosing the Dolphin Inn and it was as good as the reviews said it would be. The owner, Travis, was great--he was friendly and helpful. We first stayed in a bayside room, which was small but adequate, since we spent most of our time outdoors in the beautiful weather. Travis asked us if we... More

If you are looking for a place that offers excellent service by Travis or Jennifer and an awsome pool and a great view of the bay and easy walk to beach, Dolpin Inn is the place, we spent 10 nights there, this was our first stay at Dolpin Inn but not our last.

They had everything you could possibly need!. We had grandchildren from 2-18 years old. They went out in canoes and kayaks in the canal, used the pool,played shuffelboard, went... More

This was a great break from all the chain hotels. We didn't book this room in advance, just stopped by hoping they'd have somewhere after reading the reviews on here. We were not disappointed. We think we probably got the room for much cheaper than it should have been given that it was 5pm when we arrived. Saying that we'd... More
