This place was awesome, it has the "feel" of a cozy bed & breakfast, while being centrally located, walking distance to everything to keep us busy all weekend. We walked to restaurants, shops, I can't possibly list all the shops on St. George street, but there are plenty of places to eat and shop. You can also purchase your tour tickets here. I thought the trolley packages were a little expensive, we were able to walk to alot of these places, with the exception of the lighthouse, old jail & fountain of youth. It depends on your idea of expensive I suppose, but for us it wasn't worth it. Most of the shops and restaurants along St. George Street are very reasonable, I only found myself saying "wow that's really expensive" at one place, and we ended up eating there anyway.
Further walking includes King Street to Potter's wax musem, a book store, chocolate shop, Flagler College, and many other attractions and museums along the way on this street. We did see some homeless along the way but never felt in danger or scared at any time as this is a very busy/public area, I felt confident walking with my girlfriend all around the area.
The room we had was great, we requested a balcony room with a view of St. George Street and were not disappointed. It was very big for the 2 of us and very clean. The only thing we really heard was some karaoke/live music but it was not extremely late at night nor was it extremely early, and this was expected with the location we had, it was not a surprise or enough to deter us from staying again.
Parking is not a problem, yes you have to park "on the street" but traffic is respectful as they know the where the Inn is located so it's not like you will be honked at and forced off the road, plus there is a median right there (yellow lines) which is out of the way of traffic and you can pull your car onto it, be out of the road, and be able to unload your bags. The staff took all our bags and I was able to park at the nearby garage and walk back. I can't complain about the walk because it's a nice area, plus I am on vacation so I came here to see the sights anyway.
There is nothing bad to say about this place. Don't take my word for it or the other reviews here, experience it for yourself, you won't be disappointed. I also met Mr. Irving and he treated us like family. Nothing was left to chance.
