Very nice place with very nice Innkeepers. Great location. Free parking a plus. Breakfast spread was very good. Building is a bit run down but great service more than made up for it.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

I stayed in the Veranda suite of rooms, and it felt like I was staying in my own apartment. Very roomy, comfortable, tons of windows, and the veranda to drink coffee or have a glass of wine was wonderful. The pool was the perfect temperature and very nice. Old Florida at its finest with a fantastic pool and location. Quick walk to great restaurants and the bay. Very, very accommodating and caring B&B caretakers. They were willing to let me stay at the B&B until my flight left later in the evening. Much appreciated.
