Lots of good reasons to stay here but we stumbled on it because it is the perfect distance from the Port Canaveral cruise port. Every time we cruise we stay here along the way; have a great breakfast and arrive at your ship at the typical earliest boarding time. The rooms are really decorated very special and are very quiet...

Spent Saturday night, August 31st at The Longboard Inn. My boyfriend and I wanted a quick getaway (100 miles from home) and a change of scenery over the holiday weekend. We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, attention to detail and hospitality. John and Dee are great hosts and served a delicious breakfast! We have already discussed returning to the...

I was very happy with follow-up that I received from the Innkeeper. I thought I had left something in my room and he called me with interest in helping me to locate it. Therefore, I change my previous rating from "very good" to "excellent"!

First time we have stayed B & B in USA but we agree with all the previous comments about how welcoming John and Dee are and how quaint and individual the rooms are. We only had 2 nights here but we could not have been treated any better from the welcome drink to the lovely breakfast in their wonderful dining...

We stayed 1 night in this wonderful B&B. We were there July 27, 2013. We were warmly welcomed and were instantly made to feel as if we were treasured guests to their home. We stayed in the Coral Sky room (#6) We loved having our own entrance and small outside sitting area right outside our door. We had early coffee...

It takes a great deal for me to feel that a place is so clean that I can relax and feel at home. I was absolutely blown away with the cleanliness of the room and common areas. I was so comfortable! In addition, the owners have many nice touches to add to your comfort in the rooms that in my...

Our second visit at The Longboard Inn was better then our first visit! John and Dee are great host and hostess. Miss Betty loaned us a puzzle to put together while we were there. We enjoyed our stay so much we extended our stay from 10 days to 12 days/nights. The inn keepers made our vacation very relaxing and frustration...

This B&B was an absolute gem. The room are very well appointed, very comfortable, and each with a unique decor. John, the owner, is a fantastic host seeking to cater to your every need. This was my annual fishing trip with my son (although the weather did not cooperate) and when compared to my prior rooming selections, this was hands...

We booked all six rooms for the weekend of our wedding earlier this month for us, family and friends. It was the perfect spot! We loved our rooms - so comfortable and colorfully and cleverly decorated. The breakfasts were scrumptious and the ambiance throughout - especially on the back patio was just perfect for our party of 10. Finally the...
