My family and I have stayed at the South Beach Inn because John, the manager, is extremely helpful, knowledgeable about SPI, and treats us like family. Great place to stay! We didn't need to go get full of sand because the pool was at our front door!

We stayed 3 nights (Friday Saturday Sunday) The staff was friendly, helpful and very informative about fishing spots, sight seeing restaurants, the Manger even gave us some frozen shrimp on our first night so we could go fishing... the rooms were clean , the pool was clean and the beach is less than a 5 minute walk. Would recommend this... More

I had a pleasant weekend stay here. The manager, his family and staff were friendly and made me feel welcome. The pool and landscape were nice. The room is basic, no hair dryer or alarm clock. The beds are so comfortable just like home. An easy and short walk to the beach. I will be back.

While John and Neto were very nice and attentive, I found this hotel overpriced. First and foremost, I had never been to a place with a kitchenette where one has to rent a kitchen kit for $40.
