My husband and I were looking for a nice, relaxing place to celebrate our anniversary this past weekend. The Black Dolphin Inn exceeded our expectations. We were greeted by friendly staff immediately who went out of their way to invite us for cinnamon rolls, lemonade, coffee and asked if we required anything else that would make our stay more pleasurable. The accomodations are spacious, extremely clean and décor gorgeous. The bed was comfortable and the jetted tub was top-notch. Many thanks to Brett for sharing some Merlot with us and congratulating us on our 8 years together! We loved sitting on the waterway with our wine and mingling with other travelers like ourselves while enjoying a full moon on the dock. The breakfast selection was very delicious and for someone who is not necessarily a fan of grits - I will have to admit that I actually did enjoy them with my breakfast. Wish that we had more time to spend, but we are definitely planning on making many more reservations at the Black Dolphin Inn for the future. Neither of us felt that we had 1 complaint for our experience and would recommend them time and time again! Thank you to all at The Black Dolphin Inn for your gracious hospitality and superb inn.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A quaint Old Florida beach town is the setting for this elegant Spanish-Isle boutique inn overlooking the Indian River on Florida’s east-central Atlantic Coast. The 14-room inn gets its name from the plentiful dolphin who gracefully patrol the waters off its dock. Accommodations include guest rooms and suites with balconies and outdoor terraces, elegant Euro-style bedding, and spa–inspired bathrooms with jetted tubs. Furnishings vary in each room with original artwork and antiques tastefully integrated with modern sensibilities and décor. Eight of the suites and guest rooms are equipped with wet bars. The owners, identical twin brothers Brett & Scott Smith, are third generation hoteliers who fell in love with this former riverfront estate three years ago and set to work on a vision for its renovation. Guests share the modern and expansive Great Room on the first floor level which includes a bar, open kitchen, sitting area and breakfast room. A complimentary continental breakfast is served daily with a full Southern-style breakfast on weekends. ... more less
