Reviewed 6 November 2013

This past Sunday I visited friends staying at the Winterset. It was their second stay there and I could easily understand why they returned. They had a large spotless room with a kitchen. Their floor was beautiful terrazzo, there were large windows providing views of palm trees and the pool area was charming. And to top it off, the rate was quite reasonable. This is not a fancy new property but rather a nicely updated mid-century property with lots of charm.

Stayed at the Winterset for approx. 2 weeks during September. Being 'out of season' it was very quiet but extremely nice. The hot tube was being repaired during the first week of our stay but not a big deal - it was great when they had finised. Three pools to chose from - picked the main one out the back mostly - again very quiet for most of the time. The BBQ was really useful, again had it mostly to ourselves. Location is only a 15min walk to the beach so pretty good if that's what you want.
My room was very nice - not massive but enough for me.
All the staff were very friendly.
Overall very nice.

Richard B,
Whether you visit during peak season or during the slower summer months, you'll always find peace and quiet at the Winterset. It's close to the beach but far from the noise. With a choice of 3 pools and 3 separate buildings to choose from, guests can choose their ideal spot. Thanks a lot for your review. Hope to see you soon!

we stayed here 2 nights before a monday flight to Puerto Rico.

clean, quaint, BUT LOUD, you here everything through walls and A/c unit on room is VERY loud! pool was fine, but when guest decided to party till 5;30 am then put glass beer bottle in bottom of pool, it wasnt removed until the evening the next night. REally? GLASS in a pool and staff didnt get it for 1 day? that is dangerous!
ok location, good room rate, but we would try another hotel that was a bit quieter, really, you cant believe how thin the wall are in this place.

recommend a 1st floor unit . we had 2nd floor corner unit and wedged between 2 other rooms.

I stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed our visit. We walked to the beach everyday and it was minutes from the airport as well as local shops and restaurants!

Loved the mature Floridian foliage, the three well-maintained pools and the staff were very friendly. The hotel also included umbrellas and chairs for the beach. Older style of hotel but did well in updating the rooms and they were very clean. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: I stayed in a standard room but my family (with children) stayed in the rooms with kitchens etc. Tho...

Tracy C,
Thanks so much for your review. The Winterset is very special, and we are pleased that you appreciate the older style and mature foliage. In fact, we have an Old Man Palm Tree, which is a very rare palm that is found mostly in collector's gardens. We have worked hard to preserve the native plants and mid-century modern architecture that is Winterset, and we are so happy that you noticed! Take care, NBV

Me and my husband spent 3 days at this hotel. We loved the location (just 5 minutes walking from the beach and the ocean front boulevard with all the restaurants and shops). The hotel itself was a jewel too: very clean and welcoming. It has also a beautiful garden with a couple of tables where you can sip your morning coffee. Right outside our room was a pool and jacuzzi which we were lucky to have just for the two of us. And what i really loved was the fact that the pool was open 24/7. The staff was super friendly as well. We would love to come back!

Mariana C,
We'd love to have you back too! Guests can relax by the pool or lay in the hammock, surrounded by lush landscaping. It's almost hard to believe that the shops & restaurants are just walking distance away. It's the best of both worlds! Thanks very much for your review, see you soon!

What a nice way to describe the Winterset. You're absolutely right; with it's 3 buildings, tropical gardens and different room choices, it's easy to find the perfect fit. Thanks so much for your review.

The location was great for us and for the most part it was nice a quiet. Priced right, affordable and still nice, clean, friendly, and a roomy suite. The Staff was extremely helpful, we asked for a toaster and they got it for us quickly.
This place is really, really clean and we loved the retro feel.

Room Tip: Ask for the second floor and we stayed in the building closest to reception
