“Lovely Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Absolutely lovely place to stay. Quiet and right on the beach. Crystal clear water and the staff were wonderful. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable. Situated in and are with plenty of options for dining and playing. Would definitely stay again!

This was our fourth visit to the Inn. ..In addition to the wonderful amenities, the service is immeasurable and the food is outstanding...

If you are lucky enough to enjoy dinner on the beach, you will experience a lifetime memory..

We can not wait to return!

Henderson Park Inn is far and away the happiest place on earth. I had read reviews everyday leading up to our trip so I had high expectations - we was not disappointed. HPI, the staff and every little detail that goes into your visit is simply amazing. I really don't think there are enough adjectives to fully describe it. The staff is beyond welcoming, friendly and ready to make your wish come true. The breakfast is simply divine, served up by some of the nicest people you will ever meet. Our room was well appointed and maintained with just the right amount of ocean breeze. The location is perfection - all the open space to the west makes for such a peaceful stay. Morning, noon, night - HPI is the place I'd love to spend the rest of my days.

Room Tip: I really don't think there is a bad room, we were on the 3rd floor of the main building with a s...

Henderson Park Inn is the perfect place if you want a quiet, romantic stay. It is a 'B&B' so there are extras you won't get if staying in a typical hotel or condo. Those extras are: a staff that greets you often by name, fantastic breakfast, a 'box' lunch, snacks, beverages (soda, water, fancy coffee), books, magazines, beach chair/umbrellas, and a complimentary happy hour! Yes, it is pricey so don't stay there if you are a budget traveler! Also, if you want an upscale HOTEL, this may also not be for you ~ it is a unique B&B, privately owned. Some of the bathrooms may be small, the TVs may be small in some rooms, etc. If you want perfection in your room, go to a HOTEL where everything is standardized and perfect. BUT if you want quiet, personal attention, a romantic setting, an amazing beach location and special uniqueness in the building that you don't get at a hotel, then Henderson Park is for you! There is a reason that many of their guest book a return trip year after year!

If you haven't stayed here, you should seriously consider. A small group of us went here for a business meeting and they were not only very accommodating, but the food, the facility, our room AND the best view and beach puts it at the top of our list. You will not be disappointed!!!

We stayed at the Inn for the first time to get married at nearby Henderson Park. We and our guests all stayed at the Inn. The staff, inn, amenities, food, and overall experience was excellent. It was very memorable and we will definetely return for more visits. I cannot say enough about the quality of the Inn, staff and food. Everything was just simply wonderful. Rating of the pool and fitness are the only option I had considering it didn't have those amenities - who needs them, the ocean is your pool and the beach is your fitness station!

Any hotel that is open, should aspire to what the staff at the Henderson Park Inn accomplishes with ease. From the moment that you walk in the front door you feel like you are at home. Natalie and her front desk staff are charming, efficient and are willing to "go the extra mile" You know you are somewhere special. The 4 to 5 Pm Happy hour at the TIKI Bar is a fun mixer with the other guests.
The Breakfast in the morning is made special by the staff that prepares it an serves it to your table. The Guys in the morning do a heck of a job.
The beach is fantastic, lunch is good The BeachWalk Cafe is great. On this visit we were here for three nights and we did dinner with them each night. The crab cake rivals any restaurant in the Southeast.
This was our second visit to HPI and we have already booked our return for next year.

Fantastic experience
