HANDS DOWN THE BEST HOTEL/INN WE'VE EVER STAYED AT! On August 14t-19th 2015 my boyfriend, sister, and I were lucky enough to have stumbled upon this charming hotel and book a room day of check-in during the Florida's slow season (their neighbours told us they were all booked up for last winter!). We were even surprised with a "fourth night... More

It's hard to find the right words to describe our stay. From the moment we arrived we were treated like VIP's. We were welcomed and given a tour of the grounds as soon as we arrived. The inn reminded me of the way it used to be when we went on family vacations years past when we were small. Laid... More

We were greeted by Hoseas (I hope I spelled it correctly) who preceded to show us around and tell us everything we needed to know about the room, grounds, beach etc. I thought this was a great personal touch and excellent customer service. The in room information guide is VERY helpful and the restaurant reviews read like something out of... More

Very nice quiet hidden hotel in the middle everywhere. Close walking to the beach and restaurants or bike to the boardwalk. Eco friendly and a great vegan breakfast made by Chef Isaac. My wife and I can't wait to stay again.

After reading all the positive reviews about The Desoto, we booked our room for Independence Day weekend 2015. Upon arriving we were greeted by Steve, the owner. He gave us a tour of the property and explained all the amenities. They have many beach toys available for the kids as well as beach chairs, towels, and even bikes you can... More

I must say, this place was great! The staff was more friendly than ever and so caring. It was 100% satisfying and the cleanliness was superb!!! It's a 10 second walk from the beach with an awesome view. I also loved the bikes you can use for your own desire! I will definitely be back when I visit Florida!

We just left this morning, and I'm crying! Being able to walk out of our room at the DeSoto into BEAUTY is an experience I want to have all the time. The various garden "rooms" are serene, natural spaces that make you want to spend your day just lounging there with a good book (which there is an abundance of,... More

When I drove up to The Desoto Oceanview Inn, I immediately knew this wasn’t just another ocean-side resort. The care and detail that had gone into the landscaping gave the property a tropical island feel as I stepped through their welcoming entrance.

This was the most relaxing trip we have ever had. The breakfast, the room w/ full kitchen, the bicycles, the afternoon snacks, the washing machine, the reading library, free wifi, the sitting areas outside and best of all, the ocean being just steps away all made this a wonderful trip.
