I booked my room reservation for several months out and as I always, I sent a note saying "Please make sure the room is clean Thank you" I've worked for years for hotels- It was just a request. I was told to go somewhere else. Is their Hotel so filthy that they were saving me from disappointment? Cancelled my booking at their request so I will never know-

We are sorry that you were disappointed with your pre-arrival request. We would never consider anything other than a clean room for our guests. Our inn is famous for cleanliness and with our new Covid-19 housekeeping protocol, we go the extra mile with ozone treatments prior to guest arrival and also hydrogen cleaning. We wish you could have stayed with us. I hope that you found pleasant accommodations and that you will thoroughly enjoy your stay in South Florida.

Cannot say enough great things about this wonderful place and the folks running it. From the welcoming text sent a few days before our trip from Steve, detailing all we needed to know about checking in and whatnot, to the personal tour of the grounds and greeting we received from Josias, we could not have asked for more. The well manicured garden area was absolutely beautiful, full of local flora, beautiful tiki huts and overall, just a wonderful place to relax. The beach was just steps away, and was never crowded. While the location sits a little north of the broadwalk, it never felt far away, as the hotel provides complimentary bicycles for use throughout the stay, making it just minutes away. In addition, beach chairs, beach toys, boogie boards, and even sunscreen, among other things, were all available for use, at no additional cost. And while we at out for most meals, we did find the kitchenette with fridge and freezer, microwave and stove top allowed us to start each day with a home cooked breakfast. Josias and Steve were great, and the other guests were very friendly and the whole place had a great atmosphere. Room was super clean and had all the items we needed to make our stay a memorable one! We look forward to staying again, and hopefully soon!

A wonderful place! Josias was so welcoming when we arrived. We felt like we were staying with friends. Our room was super clean, cute and comfortable. The patio area was beautiful! Bikes, beach chairs, sunscreen and other things were available to use during our stay. I cannot say enough on what a great place this is. Highly recommend!!!
