“Wonderful retreat”
Reviewed 21 February 2011

My husband and I are our small dog (Gus) spent 4 great days at the Longboard Inn in Feb 2011. Our room and bath were spacious and decorated with beautiful hand-painted beach scenes. The bed was very comfortable, and the patio furniture outside the room was a great touch. There's a nice area in the yard for quick doggie walks and a park just a block or two away. There's no doubt that John and Dee have perfected the "breakfast" in B&B -- home-made breads, fresh fruit, and a delicious "main" dish each morning (herbed scrambled eggs, blueberry french toast, an apple/cheddar bake, and a ham/cheese quiche). Will definitely return--and hopefully find warmer temps! One quick warning: we approach this B&B from the A1A and were initially a bit concerned about the location. However, going out the "back way" to Riverside Drive towards the marina allowed us to see the more touristy/beachy side of NSB.

My boyfriend and I stayed for 4 nights for a valentines day get away. My boyfriend normally hates b&bs because of the lack of privacy. But he really liked this one as our room was spacious, immaculate and comfortable and felt very private. This place has all of the charm of an older Florida home but with awesome modern bathrooms, a/c and direct tv. Great location within walking distance to shops, restaurants and parks. Gardens and patio areas charming and beautifully maintained. I can see why this is so popular for weddings. So pretty. The innkeeper John could not have been more accommodating and yet was never intrusive. According to other reviews their breakfast is awesome but their beds were so comfy we weren't able to get up in time to try it. Maybe tomorrow, our last day.

We have been staying at the Longboard Inn a couple times each year, when we visit family in New Smyrna Beach, since the Inn opened 8 years ago. For the last 6 years that John and Dee have owned it we have had consistently great experience. Their hospitality is always so warm (including recently when we were in NSB as a relative was dying and for the funeral after), the full breakfasts are both delicious and nourishing, the rooms are beautifully decorated. We have stayed both in the rooms and the suites, and both locations offer some lovely outdoor sitting areas. For those who want to get the the beach it's easy access---if you are a runner you can easily run to the beach.

After many hours of searching for a hotel in the New Smyrna I am so glad we found the Longboard Inn B&B. My only regret is not being able to stay for more than one night. The location is perfect for those who love the beach area but prefer a quiet place to stay. Just minutes away from many restaurants and the night life of Flagler Avenue. We were warmly welcomed from the minute we pulled into the parking area. The breakfast was outstanding, quiche was served with various breads and spreads. Can't wait for our next visit to the New Smyrna area and a longer stay at this charming bed and breakfast.

The longboard inn is an exceptional b&b run by John and Dee. The rooms are very clean and John, inn keeper, will go out of his way to make you happy. If there is something you are missing at breakfast, just ask and John will be sure to have it the next day. The inn is beautifully decorated in surfer decor and breakfast consists of a different selection of numerous homemade breads (gingerbread, marmalade, banana and zucchinni), incredible raspberry cream cheese, scrambled eggs with fresh herbs, french toast, etc. which are all delicious and dangerous to your waistline (if staying too long :)). The location is EXCELLENT by being 45 - 60 minutes from Orlando attractions (Disney, Universal) and Kennedy Space Flight Center. If you are looking for a location that is easier to get to on a launch day, this is an ideal location. We were back at the b&b in 2 hrs. after fighting traffic rather than what looked like a LONG journey with most of the traffic going to Orlando or around Titusville. The town of New Smyrna Beach, is VERY quiet as it mostly shuts down around 9pm. The beach is 2 miles from the B&B and there are many good restaurants in and around New Smyrna Beach. So, if you are looking for a b&b that is in a peaceful setting (there is a train that goes by, but very briefly [about 3 horn blows are heard out in the distance, otherwise no sound heard]) . You will relax here and I am sure you will find everything delightful.

My wife and I stayed at the Longboard Inn for 3 nights. We wished we could have stayed longer. The facilities are clean and comfortable. John and Dee could not have been more accommodating. Wine at check-in and a wonderful breakfast every morning. A short walk to the "mainland downtown" for shopping and dining. We will be back.
