Took over the inn with family from across North America for an 80th birthday celebration. Everyone from 8-80 had a great time. Rooms were comfortable, roomy, and quiet. Beautiful courtyard with ample seating, shade, and a great pool. Directly across the street from beach access that provides sun, fun, and even scuba diving opportunities. One block from downtown Lauderdale-by-th-Sea. Beverly... More

My husband I LOVE this Inn!! Bev and Gill are very nice owners and are very accommodating. We have had pluming problems in the past and they either fix it or have switched us to another room. When there is a large group of us the owners will place us together as to not disturbed other people vacationing. It is... More

There is no other place to stay when in Lauderdale by the Sea! This is a family owned inn, half a block from the ocean. Perfect for gearing up to walk across the street to hit two reef dives. Very clean, comfortable, and the owners are wonderfully hospitable and kind.

The owners clearly have fixed things as they have broken but I do not think the place has ever been renovated and thus is... More

My husband and I have stayed at this inn several times, and we always go back. It's very clean, and the owners (Bev & Gil) are very friendly. The pool is so clean and pool furniture is in good condition. Our room was big with a view of the pool through the picture window. We had a small kitchette with... More

We were very happy to find this wonderful inn, in a fantastic town called Lauderdale-by-the-sea, not a 5 star hotel but better because it feels like home away from home.The owners Bev and Gil were most accomodating and happy to share their very nicely maintained nautical themed inn directly across the road from the beach. Our one bedroom was very... More
