We loved the Desoto Inn from the moment we arrived. It’s quiet, quaint, clean, and feels authentically Florida. Not to mention it is only 15 steps from the beach!

Steve gave us a thorough tour upon arrival and explained all the amenities and things to do. We used the free beach cruiser bikes to go to lots of great restaurants in the area (10 minute bike ride). Our favorites were Cafe Club and Quarterdeck. The grouper tacos at Jimbos were fantastic.

We loved having some calm and quiet days at the Desoto. Since it isn’t in the most touristy part of Hollywood Beach we could actually relax, recharge, and only be in the busier areas if we were in the mood.

As a runner, I loved the paved street/path along the beach. It goes for miles and is nicely shaded.

Steve was super accommodating to us on both the front end and back end of our trip, as our flight arrived before check in and left after check out. Everyone made us feel welcome at the Desoto throughout our entire stay.

We’re confident we’ll return to the Desoto. My wife and I mentioned a few times that it could easily be our new home away from
home.

Hi guys,
Thank you for the wonderfully complete review of your experience at the Desoto. Your positive feedback keeps us going, and encourages us to stay on top of things, always trying to exceed your expectations.

Glad you discovered the tacos at Jimbo's, it's one of my favorites, you'll have to come back for their delicious lemon-ricotta pancakes on the weekends, although you may have to add a few kilometers to your run after that.

We're very happy to know that we may become your home away from home, hurry back, we'll always have a light on in the window.

Thanks again, stay healthy and happy!

Steve

The Desoto Inn has been our go-to spot in Hollywood for the last 2 years and will be next year as well. Our accommodations are always clean, comfortable and superbly maintained. The Desoto is located literally steps from North Hollywood beach and yet is quiet in a semi-tropical setting complete with covered bamboo huts for outdoor dining and conversation and even several tropical birds. Landscaping is impeccable making use of indigenous plantings. Staff at the Desoto are friendly and very responsive with a special shout out to Steve who provides unsurpassed customer service.

We never get tired of seeing a perfect score from satisfied guests. And what makes the rating even better is the written reviews by guests like you. It tells us what really stands out for you, and the garden and beach always top the list. We're happy you noticed our native planting, and even happier that your stay was pleasant. I hope that you will come back soon, we look forward to exceeding your expectations in some small way on each visit. Thank you again for the great review, Steve

This kid-friendly inn provided an excellent stay for us in Hollywood, Florida! While my sister-in-law and her family were in town for a short stay, the Desoto provided us with a extra "stay-cation" after the Christmas Holidays. Thank you to Steve, who helped us out a lot. Thank you for the clean room, clean bathroom, clean kitchen, and full-sized refrigerator. And thank you for the coffee maker. Although the weather was a bit cool for our stay, I can easily recommend the Desoto for anytime during the year.

Room Tip: 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.

Great inn! A very relaxing environment, and the room decor makes you feel at home. The beautiful patio area is one of a kind!

The kitchenette was awesome, and we had everything we needed for our weekend stay.

Also, the beach is steps away.

Steve, the owner, was super friendly and made us feel like we weren't just another guest, we felt special. Will recommend this inn to friends and family!

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.
