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. The ambiance of the DeSoto Inn was due to our... More

This place is very beautiful and clean! We stayed for 4 nights, and enjoyed the ocean which is very close, almost in our back-yard :) The managers are very kind. The garden and outdoor sitting area are lovely.

Very nice cosy place with fantastic hosts! It's located in one of the remaining nice areas at the coast. Awesome garden, almost next to the beach, clean rooms, no complaints. This place is also perfect for people eager to do sports like running. I hope to be there next week again.

We stayed at the Inn for 4 nights. What a great experience. The room had all the amenities and was within steps to the beach. Steve was a terrific host, very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend for anyone looking for an alternative to a hotel.

We stayed at the Desoto in April 2015 and had a fantastic time. The room, available bicycles to ride along the beach, and Steve's hospitality made this a perfect stay! Being steps away from the beach was the cherry on top!
