Hearken back to a simpler time at this charming “old Florida” inn in a quiet neighborhood just steps away from the beach. Relax with a cup of coffee on the roof deck, take a dip in the heated swimming pool if the ocean’s a little cold, and cook for yourself in your private kitchenette. The inn offers studio and one-bedroom suites, decked out with tropical decor and equipped with free Wi-Fi. Sleeping arrangements differ by suite, but units with one queen + two twins are perfect for families, and some living rooms include a trundle bed for kids.

Several years ago I stayed here while in town for business and I gave this place a 5-star review here on Trip Advisor. Since then, I always looked forward to the opportunity to return.
Last week, I got my opportunity while I was back in town for business. My company usually recommends that I stay in a “name brand” hotel while on business, but in this case I insisted on staying at this charming property.
Since my previous stay several years ago, I was happy to see the place is still the same quiet and relaxing oasis. In fact, management has kept the place in great shape with a few renovations and new finishes (paint, etc.).
The accommodations are very comfortable, including a kitchenette with a stove, oven, fridge, and microwave, pots, pans, plates, glasses, utensils, etc. There no need to leave this place except to stock up in groceries at the supermarket close by.
The pool is clean and inviting (open 24 hours as long as you’re quiet— no loud parties at this place). And it’s a short walk to a beautiful beach— always a must for me.
Just as important are the people who work here. Leslie and the entire staff are friendly and always happily willing to make sure your stay is most pleasant. They obviously take pride in this hidden gem, as they should.
I can’t wait to return yet again!!!
This was a fantastic hotel located in a quiet neighborhood. It reminded us of visiting your grandma’s cottage house. It’s a block away from South Beach and a pizzeria. I stayed with my 3 children ages 17, 15 and 13 and we all loved it! We walked to the beach but there is also a large parking area so you could drive if you prefer. We also walked to get pizza and salads each night. If you’re looking for lots of nightlife you won’t find it here! It’s a quiet, relaxing area and feels very safe.
Please note... if you’re the type of person/family who needs all matching dishes, brand new everything and room service this isn’t the place for you. It’s cute and quirky. All the rooms are different. We had a corner room on the second floor which had a separate bedroom with a queen in addition to the main living area which had two queens and a full kitchen. The room was super clean, super nice and quite large. There are beach chairs and towels available for you to use for free so no need to pack those. We would stay here again in s heartbeat!
