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

Worked with the owners of this GORGEOUS place for my parent's 50th Anniversary Vow Renewal in May, 2013. Very sorry that I have made it a priority to write the review that they deserve. The place was amazing and more than anything, the owners worked very hard to make this successful, beautiful and everything we wanted for a reasonable price.... More

I spent last week at the Desoto Inn. (June, 2014) I needed a place to stay that would feel like a vacation for my husband and myself while visiting South Fla. I cried as i entered the beautiful garden area- full of the smells and visual sights of my childhood- brilliant colored flowers in beautifully landscaped areas that said that... More

My wife and I stayed here in 2008 and it was beautiful. We returned with family in tow to find just as good or better! The whole family loved the relaxing atmosphere. Steps from the beach or a small bike ride to a state park. You are minutes from Miami or Fort Lauderdale. We spent a lot of time in... More

Loved the place so much for our 25 th anniversary we came back for my 50 th birthday. This time we brought family and they all loved the place. We enjoyed the breakfasts, it was a new experience to have vegan. It is such a quaint little place everyone made us feel like we were at home. Thanks for the... More

We've stayed at the Desoto Oceanview Inn before and were so happy to be able to return last December. The Desoto is quiet, well-kept, very clean, and steps away from the beach, which makes it the perfect spot for us. We love having access to the bicycles, which we used every day as well as the grills and garden seating... More

We spent the last week of our 3 week Winter Getaway at the Desoto Oceanview Inn. Our room (E), had all the amenities one could need. The Inn is far enough away from the noise and crowds on the Broadwalk, but close enough to ride bikes to. Very clean, which is top priority for us when picking a spot. Complimentary... More

If you are looking for a quiete place with your own kitchen you are absolutely right here. Here are the most important information: the hotel is located in a neighbourhood with mostly low buildings, still no mass tourismus. Entering the apartment you find a well equipped space, no carpet. You hardly will miss anything in the kitchen, all is there... More

I usually write my reviews right after returning from my travels. But this time was different because I had such mixed feelings. My husband and I stayed at the DeSoto for a week in December in Unit E. The overall experience was very good. Loved the location - away from the honky tonk of the Broadwalk, but close enough to...

We hope that the "worst of times" portion of your stay has been resolved by recent actions we have been able to take. Through a great deal of our due diligence and persistence, the owners of the Magic Motel behind us have sold the building. All of the terrible tenants that were a disturbance to the entire neighborhood have been... More

You can tell that the owners really love this place. Just steps away from the beach, a beautiful garden (we had breakfast and lunch on the tables outside everyday), free bicycles and beach chairs, a safe and peaceful neighborhood, clean and comfortable rooms with plenty of towels, kitchen utensils so you can cook your own grub, an ice cream truck...

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I am happy that everything was perfect, and hope you will come back often. That ice cream truck is really the best. It reminds me of the ice cream truck that used to come through my neighborhood when I was a kid in St. Louis. Have a great 2014. More
