The Olde Time lobby told us we were in the right place. The sink in the bedroom (not the bathroom) certified this was a real hotel room from a bygone era. We do not have anything negative to say, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Had lunch here today with my card playing girlfriends. I had their soup & salad bar. A very nice variety on their salad bar and the chicken noodle soup was flavorful. We always enjoy dining in this historic hotel run by the culinary students at the state college. Lovely table settings and ambience too!

I met a new neighbor last week. Today we decided to go for brunch. This hotel is elegant and classy with a live pianist. Their restaurant is large, and today was The Grand Buffet for a very reasonable price. So many items to choose from including a salad bar, soup bar, main entrée bar where ham was featured plus a...

I visited the area with my two grown sons, and so decided for a suite at the Jacaranda. We had a bedroom with two double beds for them, a parlor with a fold-out sofa for me, and a bathroom with shower and toilet in between. Each sleeping room had a large sink, and a closet with about three hangers. The... More

Four women on a girls weekend. Why not find someplace a little different than the Hampton or Holiday Inn? We ended up with two singles and one suite at the Jacaranda Hotel in Avon Park.The suite was made up of two single rooms with toilet and shower in between. Obviously once a shared bathroom, it was funky but super clean.... More

Wanted a little nostalgia for a Valentine's Weekend, this certainly had it. The downtown area was so quiet, the hotel too. We asked for a king suite which consisted of a sitting room with tv and then a large bedroom with king bed. The bath was in-between the two rooms. I can't say enough about the furnishings and detail.

From other reviews, we surmised that individual rooms vary greatly, so we asked my parents (a month in advance) to stop by the hotel, ask to see one of the suites and, if it seemed acceptable, to reserve it. The staff did note that they could not guarantee we would get that room, "but they would try". This all proved... More

We stopped at the Hotel Jacaranda in Avon Park, FL for one night. We booked a room on line and received a suite with a king bed! Make no mistake, this is an old hotel. It does not have a lot of the "frills" of the chain hotels/motels -- most notably, the WiFi is sporadic particularly in the rooms. You... More

We chose to stay at the Hotel Jacaranda because of its historic designation which is quite rare in Florida. Alas, we had not made a reservation and were surprised to learn the place was "fully booked" when we tried to check in as walk ins! Seems the Air Force was having an annual event in Avon Park.
