Lovely seaside inn, nestled between beautiful parks, the intracoastal and the azure Atlantic. Footsteps to a very private beach. Minutes from attractions. Extremely clean, award winning studios and efficiencies. Free parking, bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas and towels. Tropical gardens with gazebos and bbq. Many amenities. Warm and friendly staff.

The multitude of 5 star ratings for The Desoto Inn are 100% legitimate and 100% accurate. The Desoto pegs-the-meter on all counts ! My wife and I just concluded a most enjoyable and relaxing, first-timer, 1 week stay at the Desoto following the conclusion of 8 days of

I love this place. I was hesitant about going to this hotel. My wife and I usually go to a large resort, but I read such great reviews that I had to try it. We stayed there for a week and loved every moment. They let you borrow beach chairs, older bicycles to use. The place

This is my new favorite lodging I have ever stayed in. It was like being at home, however far away from home. The owners who by all accounts are wonderful people were on their own vacation, but the people running it in their stead were super helpful and friendly. We spent a lot

After a long flight we booked this hotel to re-energize before getting back to the regular routine. From our arrival we were amazed and taken by the location, accommodations and amenities. Just a few steps from a quiet beach, assigned parking and absolutely everything you will

Hi, sorry for the delay in responding to your inquiry. Pets are not allowed. We love 'em, but we can no longer permit pets at the inn. Steve

Wow, of all people, we should have answered this inquiry immediately. I am so sorry that we missed it. A taxi is just about $20.00, and Uber is between $12.00 and $15.00. We are only about ten to fifteen minutes away,depending on airport traffic. I hope that you'll stay with us soon, just call us for more information.

Hello Mr. Dunsmore, We're happy you've chosen to stay with us prior to your cruise. You have three options for transportation to and from the ports. One option is of course, a taxi, however, taxis in south Florida can be a little iffy, and they are not inexpensive, so, while a taxi is an option, it's not my first recommendation. We recommend SuperShuttle - 800-258-3826, or book online.. The third option is Uber. You will have to download the app to your phone, but it's a great method all over the world. It's less expensive, the cars are clean, and the drivers are polite. If you use Uber, once you download the app, you will not even need your credit card, they'll have it on file, and you can connect to them almost any place in the world. Call me if you need more info on it. One last item - you have booked an efficiency, a small cozy space, that is very nice, and on the first floor. However, for $133.20 more (tax included), you can upgrade to a garden studio, also on the first floor, which is really more spacious, and offers a full kitchen, walk thru closet and large bath with walk-in shower. You can also e-mail us directly or call. Best regards, Steve

"Not a bad room in the house!"
"Our room was perfect with a beautiful garden view."
"Small room with partial kitchen good for us for the two days. If staying longer, would get one of the larger rooms with a full kitchen."
"Each room provides a 16-ounce coffee maker. However, if you bring your own K-cups, they have a K-cup brewing machine for everyone to use."
"Units E, F, and A are all nice."
US$ 127 - US$ 293 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
