• The Waterway Inn was the Home Base during our 3 Day "Father's Day ICW Boat Adventure" with my two Adult Sons. The Trip was Fantastic, and we had a Great Time, which was pleasantly enhanced by the Unique "Waterway Inn" which was Outstanding...a Definite A+ Pure and Simple! From the moment Inn Keeper Dave greeted us with his friendly... More

We can not say enough about this wonderful place. Kay and Dave made our stay so enjoyable. It started with a nice card welcoming us and telling us Happy Anniversary and happy birthday and there is cake for you in the refrigerator. Then Dave brought us a cold watermelon. You don't get this at chains! We were made to feel... More

This was our first stay at the Waterway Inn and it won't be our last! Our room was very clean with comfortable beds. Dave and Kay were exceptionally friendly and welcoming - just like old friends opening their home to out-of-town guests. We can't wait for our next visit!

The Waterway Inn is family owned/operated, clean as a pin and just a delight if you are looking for a great value. The beds are comfortable with comfy blankets and quilts. You can see the care that goes into running the Inn. Rocking chairs on the lawn, easy access if you have a boat and slips for rent. Dave and... More

Waterway Inn is a small privately run and owned motel. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. The host, Dave, was very laid back. No breakfast is available but coffee pots can be had from the office and there is a fridge and microwave to keep food and heat your own. Two small issues; the wall AC/heater did an... More

We were delighted to try the Waterway Inn as a solution to be close to our Son who we were visiting in Jacksonville, while also solving our need to be on water wherever we go on trips. We have stayed at plenty of high end hotel chains and have rented waterfront condos over our 20 years of traveling, but none... More

Dave and Kay have made this a very comfortable home away from home. The rooms are extremely clean and the property is well taken care of. This motel is one of the older style motels along the ICW. You can tell they take pride in their property and reputation. They have a nice yard with chairs and tables to watch... More

Stayed with Dave on short notice. My wife and I drove our boat up from the south and pulled right into a slip. Dave was there to meet us with a friendly smile and great laugh. He helped us secure the boat. Clean comfortable room. Great people. Great experience for my wife and I.
