I stayed at Buena Vista Inn for 3 weeks in August to attend a class. This is the second time I've stayed there and love it. I like the location, I like the facility itself. Very convenient to tourist places as well as the beach. Lovely people and wonderful atmosphere. Will be staying there again for sure!!!!

My fiancee and I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely inn this past weekend. I prefer small inns/hotels for stays away from home. The inn is very convenient to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Owners, Kathy and Bob, are truly delightful. They are very friendly and take excellent care of their beautiful inn. We will return very soon.

I am working in Central Florida and had my husband here for a short visit. Neither of us had ever been to the Atlantic and wanted a nice get away before he had to leave. This place is a jewel of a find that I will hopefully find my way back to again and again. Not only did we have... More

Checked out early - Yes we saw the No Refund signs - after being treated in a nasty and inhospitable manner, as if we were invading someone's space and not as paying guests! Male owner rude, nasty and sarcastic, and contentious. Room air stale, bathroom cramped with no ventilation, and dark and tomb like when shower curtain closed. So grimy,... More

I have called this guest twice , but so far have not been able to speak to her. Our refund policies are posted on our refrigerators with other important information about us plus our phone number. We have a window in all of our baths, which is a code in this county. I hope this guest will check our web... More

Clean, quiet, comfortable, and convenient, plus they take cats as guests!! My husband and I enjoyed our stay in a one bedroom apartment in this old FL style hotel. The courtyard is charming. Close to restaurants, the beach, and all activities.

Just got back from 3 days and 2 nights here staying in Unit #3. Very centrally located. Short drive to nice pet-friendly Smyrna Dunes Park on the Inter-coastal Waterway. Located next to a park on the water that had play ground equipment, so it was nice to walk there and to go out on the piers and great if you... More

We had a one night stay - which they usually don't do, but were nice enough to accommodate us. It was not a vacation stay, but a moving houses and need a place to stay for the night situation. Well, once checked in, I wished it was vacation! The cutest courtyard, most adorable retro style rooms and so super clean!... More

Clean Quite Great location Beats the big boxes, hands down Deli two blocks down the road, so we had a picnic in the park just behind the room. Also had lunch at the restaurant just across the waterway, which was excellent.

A perfect spot for a visit to the beach that includes your dog. Our 80 lb. Goldendoodle had his own entrance directly out to the next door park. We could walk the Intercoastal with him and then come back to the room to rest. Soundproofing was good and the room had a Refrigerator/Freezer. A half mile over the bridge to... More
