Quaint hotel in the heart of New Smyrna Beach
Posted Sep 19, 2016
If you are looking for a larger, upscale hotel, this is not the place for you. It's more like a Bed & Breakfast so if you like that, then it's a great place. The staff was fantastic and very friendly. They have a spa, which we did not visit and a restaurant, which we did and had a very nice lunch overlooking the water. The best thing about the room was the bed. Very nice linens, plenty of pillows and it was very comfortable. The rooms are small. We had a bottom floor "cabana" room which was supposed to be overlooking the pool but in reality our small patio faced the pool pumps and the air conditioner units. There is a nice, small area with lounge chairs and a pool, which we did not use. As I said, the room is small and the hotel is older. The room was clean but not sparkling, especially the bathroom. Maybe that's because of age. They do provide you with nice toiletries, but if you need a heavy duty hairdryer, then bring your own. The one attached to the wall does not blow very hard. They do offer a complimentary breakfast with the option of purchasing additional items, including mimosas, and they deliver it to your room which is nice. On Friday and Saturday evenings from 5-6 they offer cheese, crackers and wine. Not great wine but if you don't care about that, you'll enjoy it. Chocolate chip cookies are always available and they have other snacks to purchase if you need them. I thought for what we got, the room was on the expensive side.
