This place is a small Oasis. Owners are friendly and informative, the room includes free bicycles to use, two umbrellas, full kitchen with things like toaster and items you would have at home. Rooms were exceptionally clean and you walk 50 yards and on the beach. The courtyard is beautiful and like an oasis.

What can I say about the Desoto that hasn’t been said?! Steve rocks! The garden is a paradise, the coffee is delicious, the birds were entertaining for my son, and the grill was very convenient. We grilled steak & heated up a pizza too!

Location, cleanliness and chill... thanks for enjoying what we consider the best things about the inn. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the bikes, it's true what they say, you'll always remember how to ride once you get back on. Don't wait another 30 years for a bike ride, come back soon, and thanks for the great review. Steve

I was in town for a brief visit. There was a mix-up with the reservation, but the owner made an exception and tripadvisor did a great job accommodating my one night stay. This hotel only does multi-night stays. The owner Steve was very nice. I would consider this hotel again for a more extended stay. This hotel is great for getaways with a lover. The courtyard is great. They have outdoor lounge areas and birds that chirp and make the ambiance wonderful. The hotel is located in a quiet corner of Hollywood Beach.

Your great review is most appreciated David, and I am so glad that we were able to accommodate your stay for the night. I hope that you will come back again with a lover, friend or family, it's great to share the gardens and gazebos. Thank you again, Steve

First the Desoto is an amazing place - only steps from the beach, which by the way, feels like your own private beach. The rooms are clean and comfortable with everything you need. There was however, a problem, it seems that the wrong dates were booked, not the fault of the Desoto but an online booking company. As a result we lost one day as we arrived on the second day of our reservation. Steve and Wendy went completely out of their way to make sure that we would be able to stay at the Desoto. Wendy came in early to make sure another room was available for us and Steve would not hear of us going anywhere else and made sure we would not have to move. I can not say enough about Steve and Wendy and their desire to make sure my wife and I were taken care of. Steve would not charge us for the mixed up night, I tried to pay, he would only accept the difference in the rooms which was $20.00. Stay at the Desoto you will NOT regret it. It is the BEST. Say hi to Steve and Wendy for me.
