They also provide chairs and towels for the beach. The servide is amazing. We had a little issue with the kitchen, and they... More

This is our second time here and we will be back again. Perfect spot only steps away from the beach. Rooms all have a kitchen and fully stocked dishes, plates and cookware. Very comfortable and outstanding service.

The DeSoto is is lovely on the outside, with flowers everywhere, and tropical birds in cages. The service is excellent, if you need anything, you only have to ask. Bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas are provided for guests' use. There is no breakfast service, but there is coffee each morning for a nominal fee, and the kitchen in our room... More

I can add nothing to the wonderful reviews below. They say it all so well. We had a wonderful stay in #6. It was immaculate, cozy, appointed in a lovely manner and just perfect. The sun poured in each morning, the breezes and rustling palm created a perfect mini-vacation. We will return and look forward to seeing Steve and Josias... More

I rarely write reviews but here goes. I recently had a two night stay at the Desoto Inn. Such a great spot. Made to order for a recharging weekend stay. Clean and well thought out lodging with an owner that meets you where you are with his level of personal involvement. What a relief. Totally available if wanted/needed and very... More

We arrived at The Desoto Inns, and my husband and I were both mesmerised at how lovely and quirky and gorgeous the rooms were, so clean and fresh, home from home but with that holiday feel. Had a really wonderful stay and we'll definitely go back. And what a lovely host the Steve is, didn't bother you, but on hand... More

My husband and I checked into the Desoto Inn. I was in town for the Oprah Life you Want weekend. So I needed to hurry and shower before the event. Our room was not ready at 2:55pm. However Wendy, ushered us in so that I could meet my deadline. When we walked in the floors were sparkling and the room... More

Looked everywhere for an inexpensive place to stay for two nights when we arrived in Ft. Lauderdale. Don't expect the Marriot amenities and updates but it's a fraction of the price. Clean, comfy and super laid back!

After much research, my husband planned our stay at the Desoto sight unseen. We flew into Flordia on Saturday, picked up the rental and made our way to Hollywood. We had an early flight and planned on just stopping by to confirm the reservation. Upon arrival, we were mesmerized by the beauty of the Desoto. Josias greeted us as if... More

Just had a two day stay at The Desoto Inn in Hollywood, FL. Steve was great and very welcoming. The vegan breakfast was tasty and varied; loved the smoothies and fresh fruit. Loved being steps away from the beach and access to chairs and umbrellas. The room was spacious, clean, and had everything we needed for the weekend. If ever... More
