After hearing our flight was canceled, I called Great escape hoping there was a room available for two days as our flight was rescheduled. Mark was able to accommodate us, thankfully. We stayed here 3 times last year and it feels like our home away from home. The staff is so helpful and they make you feel like family. We...

We were disappointed with our stay for a number of reasons, this establishment is very basic, no tea making facilities(only coffee), no shelf or extractor in the bathroom, but main complaint is that it is situated on the main A1A road therefore very noisy from traffic as windows not double glazed. On the plus side, towels were changed daily.

We originally booked for 2 nights but once we saw the newly renovated, spacious, and squeaky clean accommodations we rescheduled our trip to stay 6 nights. This is one of the best places we've ever stayed. The location is great--a block or so to the grocery store, CVS, etc., a block or so to the beach, a few blocks to...

In 35 years of travelling to Florida this has been one of our favourite places to stay. We have discovered a Gem-the Great Escape Inn. The Great Escape Inn management and staff should be considered an example for other hotels of how to make a vacation experience truly enjoyable for patrons. You can't beat the location-restaurants, beach, pier, shopping plazas,...

Basic older facility with no frills but,kept clean & priced accordingly. Good neighborhood but, security measures could be better i.e., leaving room unlocked for late arrivals w/ keys on table, no peepholes & traditional keys.

I cannot say enough good things about The Great Escape! It is a smaller property, very meticulously maintained, newly updated, and great pool area! Everything is clean, bright and gorgeous. All of their little touches around the property impressed us to no end, including complementary beach chairs, sun screens and large beach towels to use during our stay. The staff...

I was able to walk to beautiful clean beaches, one minute away! Walking a little farther on the beach brought me to great restaurants and a park and city center. Mark and the other staff were very friendly, accessible, and helpful whenever I wanted assistance. The room was comfy and clean. The bedding was especially comfy. I slept so well!...
