There isn't a more perfect location for a hotel! Conveniently located right next to the Ponce de Leon bridge, making for a very quick walk into town. The porches face the marina so you get stunning sunset views every night. All the staff were very kind and helpful. The room was cleaned daily with waters, towels, soaps, and coffee restocked. The breakfast was amazing! Not your typical hotel breakfast....See More

Everything was nice. Location was most memorable. Sitting on the balcony watching the boats, and the bridge was enjoyable. Walking distance to the historic district was really nice to not worry about driving during our stay. Jessica was quite friendly and helpful with finding a good place to eat on the night of our arrival.
