Great place to stay, friendly staff, fun location, loved having bikes to borrow, some were ready for a tune up, but we swapped out for ones in better condition.

I love this hotel! Every time we come to New Symerna this is where we stay. It’s also so clean and the staff is so friendly. I love the quaintness of this small town hotel.

Great place -5 minute walk to beach-very helpful staff

The rooms here were very nice. The room we had opened right up to the pool and had a little private area which was perfect for enjoying the breakfast that was delivered to the room each morning. We also took advantage of the complimentary bikes to ride up and down the beach. We did not get a chance to attend one of their wine mixers in the lobby but look forward to the next time we are in town. Highly recommended and a wonderful staff (Dennis at the front desk).

Dennis at front desk was awesome! Bringing the breakfast to the room was great. The one main thing that was very disappointing was the size of the rooms, they are very small! No more than 2 people, and that's crowded!

This is a very nice, comfy hotel. The staff was kind, helpful and very polite. We will definitely be back to stay again and make time for their beautiful spa & it's services.

the hotel and staff were wonderful . and a great location. we will be back.

Overnight visit. NO ELEVATOR so luggage must be carried upstairs! This town is fun and friendly. Hotel I would describe as historic and charming. However the room (2 queen beds) and bath room were small. The spa privileges are unique and a must try experience just for the waterfall pool alone. Spa pools (2) are small as well. Carpet looks worn but again historic hotel. Staff is great. Free bikes to use but don’t go down the main strip-too many people and narrow side walks. Try one block behind main strip, much more enjoyable.

This Inn is a real "find." Tucked almost below the eastbound entrance to the North Causeway, this historic Inn was a wonderful place. First, the staff is exceptional. I did not encounter anyone who was not absolutely courteous, professional and so helpful. Everything from information on activities, dining, directions to quick physical assistance with luggage, etc., which was essential since our room was on the second floor, and there is no elevator (only real drawback). The lovely free continental breakfast is brought to your room, tailored by you the night before on an order form and hung on the doorknob for their retrieval. Not a real view from our room or our porch where we enjoyed breakfast, but we could view the pool area. It was a very quiet location and a few steps from the Grille at Riverview, which turned out to be a very nice waterfront bar and restaurant. I would, most definitely, plan a return visit on my next trip to New Smyrna Beach.

From our check-in at the front desk to the young woman delivering ice and chocolates, the staff was kind and welcoming. We loved the room - decorated like a magazine spread in Elle Interior - and I appreciated that they'd retained the Old Florida bathrooms rather than making them look like every other hotel we've stayed at. We loved hanging at the pool where we made new friends, and on a tip from the guy at the desk we took their bikes down to The Garlic - another great experience. We also loved the robes and breakfast in bed. We're pretty sure we'll be making another visit soon just to recreate the experience. I had no idea New Smyrna was such a perfect getaway spot.

Physical location and facility very different from the picture on the internet. Our room was very small but the bed was comfortable. A smaller bed might allow another chair or more room for suitcases. I liked sitting on the terrace right outside the room. Breakfast was good but I had to sit on the terrace to eat it since the room had no space for 2 chairs. We were not told there was no elevator but fortunately we were only 1 flight up though we were on the 3rd floor. The restaurant next door was very good & overlooked the river. It was an easy walk through downtown all the way to the beach.
