Nice little motel .8 units. We stayed in a one bedroom June 8 for one night. We grilled out on the patio on the gas grill. We walked our dogs across the bridge to Flagler avenue. Very CLEAN. Would stay here again. We usually like hampton inns but not all are pet friendly. Took a chance on this motel and we were happy !!!

Had an enjoyable stay at Buena Vista Inn June 3rd through 9th. Ask about the senior discount from Tripadvisor.com when you make your reservations. We stayed in the "Dolphin" which was quite roomy and nice & quiet. Comfortable king bed and nice clean shower. Kitchen small but nice to have there. The city park out the back provides a great walk and a close up view of the Intracoastal Waterway. We saw dolphins, pelicans, and lots of nice boats. Fun watching the bridge go up to let boats through. We had planned to fish but it got very crowded on the piers. The courtyard was very lovely, lush tropical plants, a gas grill and picnic tables in a nice private setting. One of the best days we had was a picnic lunch outside at the New Smyrna Boat Marina on Riverside Drive. We went to Publix and got deli sandwiches and brought our own cold drinks and enjoyed a nice private picnic table there. We went to Canal St the historic center and visited the Little Drug Co. for ice cream. Also attended a Classic Car show there which was just wonderful. We plan to visit BVI again some time.

Room Tip: Don't worry about noise from the Causeway, it is a very quiet motel. We liked the Dolphin #2 uni...

We just had our second stay at The Buena Vista Inn in New Smyrna. Second visit was just as enjoyable as the first. Great Location, Quaint courtyard. On the older side but well maintained and clean. Owners do a great job.

We stayed in this little motel recently, the rooms (kitchen, bath, bedroom and living room) were clean and neat. It is an old building, but kept up very well. Nothing fancy at all but that was ok. I thought I would be able to see the water from my room but it is set back quite a ways from the seawall. The owner is a gruff, crusty, old man, not taken to much customer service and for that I was put off. He and I didn't seem to hit it off right from the start. Believe it or not I would stay there again but have my husband deal with BOB. For the price, it is convenient, and like I said CLEAN. The bed is very comfortable. Just be forewarned about the gentleman? at the desk.

This has been our second visit to Buena Vista Inn in New Smyrna Beach, FL. This is a cozy, exceptionally clean, comfortable motel right on the Inter coastal Waterway. There is a beautiful courtyard full of Florida plants for grilling and relaxing. Historic Flagler Street and the ocean are within walking distance. We love the quietness and quaintness of the rooms, no noise or crowds of the big hotels and resorts.

Room Tip: You can have a motel room or if you need a galley kitchen they are available. All have a refrigerat...

The room we have is adequate, clean and functional not like a luxury hotel at the beach but neither is the price. It is very reasonable and central to everything. I would definately stay here again. Nice get away spot.

My wife and I stayed at the Buena Vista two nights while visiting our daughter who was working in New Smyrna Beach. We had the Blue Fish apartment...nicely appointed, and were very comfortable. Our rooms were clean, the bed excellent and the kitchenette well equipped. We had our small dog with us and there's room in an adjacent park to walk. New Smyrna is a jump back to mid century with all the charm that entails...and the Buena Vista fits right in. We hichly recommend it
