Booked this trip on another website where you never know what you get until it's paid for and was pleasantly surprised with property. Quaint, botique like hotel, although older has been rennovated and is clean, at least our room was- 714. The only complaint was the bed- too firm for my liking and the AC was noisy, but fortunately we... More

Nice staff, nice pool area. A lot of trees so you move around with the sun if you are trying to tan. Very close to beach, about a 3-5 minute walk. Rooms are big and ok. Bathrooms are very big. Short walk to some nice places to eat and a dunkin donuts!

It was just okay for a last minute getaway. Not very clean, lots of kids and smokers by the pool. The only upside is the convenience of the location to walk everywhere. Very over priced for lack of amenities and cleanliness.

The 3 main reasons why anyone could prefer this hotel, are basically: 1 - It is a cheap hotel, if you consider the same level of hotel at the surroundings, you will realize that this is the cheapest one. The rooms are big, comfortable and well decorated. The furniture is not brand new, but it still is contemporanean. 2 -... More

So convenient with shopping center right next door, Publix grocery store, Chinese restaurant, pizza place, drug store, all the comforts of home! The pool was very clean... More

I've lost track, but I think this is our fourth or fifth winter getaway at the Away Inn, and once again, we had a wonderful vacation. This time, it was a coincidence that the on-site handyman, Earl, was out front when we arrived. After a big hug for me and handshake for my husband, Earl proceeded to help us upstairs... More

For three years in a row, my husband and I have "come home" to the Away Inn during February for a break from the winter in the Northeast and to see my parents. We stayed for 3 weeks, and once again were extremely pleased with our total experience. Although our room has always been immaculate, this time I made a... More
