TripAdvisor Rating


The South Beach Inn claims to be the oldest on the island. Families will enjoy the 12 units, all of which has full-size refrigerators, microwaves, kitchenettes, free Wi-Fi and cable TV. Rooms can sleep up to four people at a time and are pet-friendly. Although no onsite dining is available, kitchen kits can be rented for $10 a day and there are BBQ grills onsite for guests to use at their leisure. The inn doesn’t have much for families besides a pool, but the views surrounding the property are beautiful and the location is close to the beach and water excursions.

No refund for 2 disabled people

by Leslie N

I had reservation for 3 dogs , my husband and myself. We are disabled. I had a sudden health condition and asked for a refund since I had paid in full (1400.00) The owner,Joanna Folz said I could change dates but no refund. When I knew the new dates,we were told they would not honor their decision to change my dates "because I didn't respond to them quick enough". I was never given a deadline date to let them know my new dates when my health condition was better. THEY COULD HAVE AT LEAST KEPT MAYBE A DAYS PAYMENT! They kept every penny and stopped all correspondence with me. I notified the attorney general,news channels,BBB,and Chamber of Commerce. I had been a long time guest there over the years,20 plus. I will NEVER stay there again as long as Joanna Folz is the owner nor will my family and friends. DISABLED PEOPLE BEWARE! Such a horrible way to run a business!

Kids getaway

by Hopefultexastraveler

If you’re reading this, you’re probably looking for a budget getaway. Well you found it. This is a two star hotel but it’s great for the money. Don’t come having these Hilton expectations when booking this property. The rooms are clean. Management is nice. What else can you ask for. This place is older and it shows signs. The room we stayed in needs some updating. Especially in the bathroom. It didn’t ruining our beach experience. We didn’t book a room to stay there the entire day. We will 100% be back and stay here again.
