Our proximity to Duval Street was perfect, which meant we didn't need a cab or ride anywhere unless it was to the airport. Enclosed in its own oasis, The Cabana Inn is perfect for people looking for a kid-free space to relax and rest. Daily happy hour, comfortable rooms, and reasonable rates made it a home run.

This Inn is perfectly located for those who like this end of town! Very quaint and clean, the staff is very friendly and accommodating without being overbearing. The added bonus of the complimentary continental breakfast (including Starbucks coffee) and Wine & Cheese happy hour everyday is fabulous. I will definitely be staying here again!

“Room #34 on second floor overlooking pool and hot tup; extra large with three crazy large closets and built-in counter with drawers. Shower is walk-in with two shower heads. Glass sink countertop is small however, only small drawback. Tons of natural light with windows all around and even skylights.”
