Very happy with our stay! My husband was skeptical when we first pulled in but after seeing the room, meeting the managing family, and finding out how close the inn is to the beach, he was thrilled! We stayed in the family suite which is upstairs next to the manager's apartment (manager shared his gas grill with us). Small but... More

I had seen this hotel before and wanted to stay, so I finally did on my birthday. 6/15/15 for two days! This is the best hotel I stayed on S.P.I with my family! I liked that it feels like a beach condo, right next to other condos and on a quiet street next to the beach! Big swimming pool with... More

My wife and I wanted to book a last minute getaway to hang out at the beach for a 3 day weekend, but the prices we were finding at the hotels were all outrageous! We were considering canceling the trip when we found the South Beach Inn. The reviews were mostly positive, and the price was far cheaper than most,... More

I book this hotel because the reviews I kept seeing made it look good. IT AND THE OWNER ARE AWEFUL! My wife and I are on our honeymoon. I booked on Orbitz and it had 3 stars. This has to be from a lack of people writing them. We checked in at 3:23pm and checked out the same day at... More

I found this motel 4 years ago while looking for lodging that accepts pets. I was skeptical because of the low price but convinced after reading other reviews. Though this is not your Marriot, it is clean, comfortable, and less sterile than your typical hotel chains. We like that the parking is directly outside the back door and the pool... More

While not being the Marriott, we found the South Beach Inn to be a very enjoyable and accommodating (small) hotel. We booked two rooms for our family and really enjoyed the adjoining rooms. Front Desk was friendly and check in was a breeze. The pool, kids play area, and BBQ grills are easily accessible as they are right outside your... More

After getting assigned room number nine we drove completely around the building before finding our room door. It was on the side of the building. It was apparently part of the old manager apartment in back of the lobby that they decided to convert to a room. WEIRD. It look like they just opened an outdoor wall and added a... More

Thank you for your candid review. Unfortunately, room 9 is our least favorite room. We generally save it for someone who is just passing through for 1 or 2 nights. We apologize for your less than comfortable stay. I recommend calling the hotel directly to book, and requesting a standard double, rooms 11 - 20. You may also want to... More
