5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

My wife and I stayed 4 nights. We found this hotel very clean and a fantastic value. I was able to walk out the back door of the unit to a fishing pier. Also behind the units is a playground. Chose to drive to Flagler ave stores but we could have walked. Will be retuning in the near future.

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

My husband and I wanted a great place to stay for our 30th anniversary but wanted something other than the routine franchise hotels at the beach. I cannot say what a wonderful choice the Buena Vista was!! The rooms were super clean and accommodating with everything we needed, We sat in the courtyard the first night we were there enjoying the great outdoor ambiance. The next night we walked just out back on the fishing pier watching the locals. We walked over the bridge to the many great shops and experienced several great restaurants thanks to the advice of the owner, who by the way lives on site and is available for anything you may need. Our experience was wonderful and plan on going back as soon as possible as well as sending family members! Thanks to all for a special anniversary trip!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a patio!

Been trying to find a reasonable, clean place to stay for a quick getaway... and we found it! It has everything you need - micro, refrig, coffee pot - is reasonably priced and is very clean. Loved being able to walk out back door, walk thru park/playground area and you're at the pier for fishing, crabbing or just watching sunset/moonrise. Owners are very helpful and made us feel at home. Will certainly be back...

Room Tip: We stayed in motel room because we were only there for 2 nights. For a longer stay, we'll proba...

This was my third summer staying at Buena Vista. My time spent there gets better and better! Kathy and Bob , the owners, are so very nice and accommodating with the guests needs. I look forward to vacationing there next year!

We enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to return! The Inn is quaint and retro 1950's with new age comforts! Outside the rooms is a pleasant courtyard peaceful and beautiful! We enjoyed sipping coffee in the morning and wine at night. The intracoastal waterway is the back view. The rooms are extremely clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. We had the choice of enjoying the beach or the quaint downtown since the Inn is centrally located. We could walk either way if we chose! Nothing but awesome is the way I would describe Buena Vista Inn! You get more than your monies worth! That means a lot these days!

Buena Vista is a small and older motel with a wonderful location on the inter coastal waterway and a county park at your back door. It's pet friendly and a perfect place if you're traveling with a pet. It's very close to terrific downtown shopping and the owners are especially nice and helpful.

Room Tip: The apartments are a little more per day but the larger space with a kitchen and living room is wort...

We needed a last minute hotel so that my mothers dog could come along. Finding Pet friendly hotels was not that easy.. Room was very clean. Location was easy to find. Plenty of areas to walk the dog. Close enough to walk to the shops on Flagler St. (We even took the dog for the Flagler St walk.) owners very friendly and helpful with local suggestions . Would definitely come back.

Room Tip: Get the studio or apartment is not that much more
