    Kenneth is a doll! Great Continental breakfast...assorted pastries/muffins, etc. Small rooms, but clean and well stocked. Not a bad walk to Duval Street and Mallory Square. Even the "younguns" were polite and well-mannered! Nice pool. Parking is tricky...call ahead!

    The economy queen rooms do not have mini-refrigerators. The Deluxe King rooms all have mini-refrigerators. The cottages all have refrigerators. Please come and see us!
