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...

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

It's been 2 weeks since I left my friends at The Desoto Inn :( The staff here know how to make you feel right at home, they truly care about your stay with them! The location is just steps away from a uncrowded section on Hollywood beach ( hard to find) and walking distance to a couple of fun restaurants.... More

Stayed for five nights at the Desoto Inn. I can best desribe it is just a comfortable place to unwind. We had a studio style apartment/room. It was fully stocked with everything you need. There was a full size fridge, stove and microwave, even a blender for margaritas. If you are looking for a chrome and glass tower go to... More

One of my favorite things to do is to read the TripAdvisor reviews from our guests. Every review is unique, and every review provides an opportunity to say thank you again for the wonderful guests that stay with us. Without your input, advice and kindness, we simply wouldn't be what we are - a comfortable, clean and quiet respite from... More

Thank you so much for your review, I love it when guests get it, and you hit the nail on the head - laid back, unpretentious and enervating; you've provided the perfect words on how we'd like to describe the inn. No amount of hype can say what you've said with three simple adjectives. Thank you, thank you, thank you.... More

Went for a short getaway with the kids and found a great break from the chain hotels. The kids had a fun time exploring the unique grounds and enjoyed eating in the garden area. It was so convenient to be steps from the beautiful beach with chairs, umbrellas and bikes free for guests to use. The suite was very clean... More
