“Wonderful stay!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Stayed at the enchanted inn for 7 nights and can only say great things about the place. The rooms were so clean and had everything we needed. The staff was so great and accommodating. The location was perfect, we will definitely rent here again!

We booked the entire hotel for our wedding party, and I wouldn't have changed a thing, I saw every room since I was the bride and wanted to make sure everything was just right, all the rooms were VERY clean and decorated with amazing taste! We also used boat slip and ejoyed swimming in the pool. So happy we found this hotel, we are planning on going back to celebrate every year! Thank you so much Enchanted Inn for making my wedding so special!

Cute, small hotel; there are 8 rooms all with outside entrances. The rooms also have entrances on the backside of the building to the pool, dock, bbq area and sun deck. A gate keeps children from entering the pool/sun deck area from the rooms. All rooms have been freshly painted; full kitchens; bathrooms have showers (no tubs). The manager lives very close be sure to ask how to obtain your room key. Each room is decorated beautifully in Florida colors and motif. The property is VERY clean, bug-free, inviting and relaxing on the inlet side. Boat slip is for rent for a minimal price during your stay! Being a boutique hotel with doors opening to the pool area, you are bound to get to know your neighbors, we had a great time meeting new friends! Very comfortable, safe and relaxing time! Sunrise was beautiful! A block to the Clearwarer Rec Center and many other venues. This is a gem, of a small hotel!

A short walk of three blocks to the ocean, Frenchy's, Palm Pavilion for your typical beach food and spirits! Off the beach, fun and full of spirit is the "Shipwreck" bar (we hear excellent food!). Best breakfast in town, Bualuang Thai - yep Thai! Trust us - it's excellent!

This is a pet friendly hotel.
Rented the whole place for a week next year - we loved it this much!

Room Tip: Room 2 and 3 are on the bottom level, center. Room 2 is directly in front of the pool. Room 4 is a...

Here's the good news: Nice view of the bay. Full kitchenette. Clean & bedbug-free.
Here's the bad news: Walls so thin I could hear the man in the adjacent room coughing & talking with his wife. Guests above me stomped and slammed who knows what, until 4:00 in the morning and started in again at 8:00. The woman in the other adjacent room took Ambien to sleep and so didn't hear all the noise--probably wouldn't have heard a firecracker going off next to her bed. This apparently convinced the owner--who does not live onsite--that I was imagining the noise.

Unless you want to party all night, you'll probably find a more enchanting hotel on the mainland. Also, the rate I saw online was listed as $55, but the actual rate is $95.00. Even though the owner gave me a $10 discount, it didn't begin to compensate for lost sleep and being too exhausted to get the most out of the seminar I attended.

Room Tip: An upstairs, end unit might be quieter.

We stayed in #5, on the end upstairs. This efficiency was impeccably maintained. Shared balcony and a large shared deck below with swimming pool, tables, lounge chairs and fishing. Valerie is delightful and keeps everything ship shape. From the outside, we weren't sure, but do not judge this book by the street-side view. It's a fantastic location -- walkable to downtown -- spacious deck on the intercoastal waterway -- beautiful sunrises. For the price, can't be beat.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights and absolutely loved it. We wanted a place that was away from the crowds and bustle for me, and close enough to everything, uncluding the beach, to have ready access for him. The Enchanted Inn is in a perfect location - a five minute walk to the beach and restaurants, and located on the bay with a great view. we would have loved to stay longer and will next time!

We were pleasantly surprised when we got to our place at Enchanted. It was very clean, newly renovated, quiet and within walking distance of the beach.Only warning is that there are 7 Suites taken care of by an offsite caretaker. He can be easily reached by telephone but if you are looking for services, this is not the place. But for an independent minded single or couple, it was perfect. The view of the water was nice, as well as the deck and pool, although the poos is not heated.
