“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Loved this place. We were only able to stay 2 nights but we have planned to go back very soon. The room was clean, roomy and the decor was so cute. It was just a short walk to all of the restaurants and shops so we did not have to move our car at all. Everyone at the front desk was so friendly and helpful. It had free wifi and a great private balcony. We had dinner one night at the Bon Appetite restaurant right next door and we had vouchers for breakfast there both mornings. The restaurant was right on the water and the food and service was great. We will be back in the Spring with some more of our family. Can't wait.

Room Tip: Get a room on 2nd floor so you will have a more private balcony with a better view.

We stayed here Nov 30 to Dec 3, 2012. Just a short visit but a lovely hotel. Right by the water, motel style hotel with a heated pool and hot spa. The room we had was facing the parking lot and pool. The back of the hotel room opened to an outside walkway with a nice view of the water. It was nice to open the front and back door to get a breeze blowing through but unfortunately the water view at the back door came with a price -- stinky smell of low tide (or probably sewage) so we kept that door closed most of the time.

There was another smell too a little off-putting. They had obviously sprayed the room with Febreeze before we got there so the perfumy smell was a little sickening. We asked that housekeeping not spray it again in our room while we were there. But everything else was great and putting up with the smells was minor. We were in Dunedin after all!

It's a great hotel in the heart of everything. Walking distance to downtown Dunedin and all the amenities. Despite my references to the smells, this is a great hotel.

Room Tip: There is a 2nd floor to this hotel. Next time we'd book a 2nd floor room so we have a deck rathe...

Dear Guest,
We appreciate your feedback and hope you come back for a longer stay. We are glad you enjoyed the walkway overlooking the water right outside your room and also enjoyed the heated pool. We are right across Dunedin downtown where there are amazing restaurants and stores. Honeymoon Island is ten minutes away. You can cycle on Pinellas trail which is 34 mile biking trail which runs right outside our property. Hope you come back again.

Our breakfast plan was at Bon Appetite restaurant right at the hotel. Very nice. Room was on the water and pet friendly, too. Dunedin has the greatest restaurants, shops, Honeymoon Island is a short distance. You can't cover all of what you would like to do and see in a weekend. I recommend Dunedin highly and this hotel!!

Room Tip: We had our small dachshund, so we were put right in front by the pool. But it was quiet, no noise t...

We love Dunedin. We had our wedding there and stayed at this hotel 2 nights. We had a very nice room with a very comfortable bed. Everything was clean and up to date. The staff was very friendly. Would reccomend this hotel to anyone!

Over the past 20 years I've visited the Clearwater Beach area many times, but I was ready for hotel away from the traffic and tourists of the beach. This inn is small and in a great location in historic downtown Dunedin. It's on the Intracoastal Waterway which means no beach, but it's right on the water, so there are water views. My room was a nice size with a balcony overlooking the marina. (The bathroom was small, but who spends their vacation in a bathroom???) Wonderfully comfortable king size bed, great pillows, towels, etc. Friendly front desk staff. Short walking distance to two premium restaurants (Black Pearl and Bon Appetit) plus many non-chain cafes and restaurants.

Rooms big and clean. Loved the balcony. Staff friendly and helpful. Great location for walking downtown.. Loved the seafood restaurant across the street from the hotel in the fish market. Food very fresh and service excellent.
