“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013 via mobile

The Longboard Inn is a great value. It's close to everything and the hosts, John and Dee, make it even more special. Stayed in the pet friendly/handicapped room. It was nice but the walls lack good sound insulation. You can hear the voices clearly on the other side, which is the office and a hallway. Thankfully we are early risers and it didn't bother us but it might bother some. John also greeted us with a refreshing beverage which was a very nice touch. We'll be back.

The room was great and jetted tub wonderful. The breakfast was outstanding and they made a special one for my wife that considered her food allergies. The bed was real comfy and had mints on the pillow. The window coverings did not allow for complete privacy. If they add a privacy curtain then it should be adequate.

I felt like I stepped into old time Florida seaside bungalow. Quaint but with all modern conveniences. Very clean room- tastefully decorated with just enough Florida camp. Great beachy place. Fantastic breakfast. Awesome porch for lazy afternoons.

The inn keeper John asked my wife who has diabetes each morning if the meal his wife Dee prepared was all right for her to eat.They had other hot meals ready for my wife to eat.There were only a few meals they had already prepared she could not eat.The other alternate hot meals worked out just fine.You could not ask for better service and outstanding hospitality by John and Dee.Our house keeper Betty was out standing.Our room was exceptionally clean,the Inn's ground exceptionally clean.Very pet friendly.We were so pleased that we extended our stay from six days to ten days.We will plan on returning back to The Longboard Inn,New Smyrna Beach,Florida .Thanks John,Dee,Miss Betty for making our stay a very pleasant one,Kerry and Mandi and Babe the cat.

We had previously stayed at another B&B in New Smyrna Beach over New Year's and our experience there can't compare to the warmth and hospitality we received at the Longboard Inn. Our room was exceptionally clean, John was very helpful, and Dee's breakfast breads were amazing! We would stay here again in a heartbeat; you simply can't beat it for the location, service, and price.

John, Dee and the rest of their staff are truly wonderful hosts. The B&B has a unique beach-decor that includes surfing memorabilia. They also decorated for Christmas and even have a decorated tree out front!

The room was very clean and the housekeepers were kind and thorough. The breakfast was fantastic and included a homemade quiche, fresh orange juice, an abundance of freshly baked breads and a strawberry cake. The jams and spreads are plentiful and fresh.

We reserved a room last minute and the rates are very reasonable.

The only drawback could be that they are not located within walking distance to beach. On the upside, they're close to several restaurants and shops.

Needless to say, we'll definitely be back in the future.

Such a great little gem in New Smyrna Beach. Greeted with a tasty beverage upon check-in, the hospitality was nothing short of outstanding. Rooms are very quaint and well kept. Breakfast made from scratch with plenty of fruit, OJ, and coffee to go around. Absolutely a wonderful establishment that truly made the trip perfect!!
