We just got back from an overnight stay in New Smyrna Beach, and are we ever glad we chose the Longboard Inn! We found the on "Bring Fido", as we have a small elderly dog. They simply could not have improved on making our visit more fun and relaxing - the room was clean and nicely decorated, we were offered...

What a novelty, in the midst of US corporate chain hotels and tacky, out of date '50s motels, to find a quaint bed and breakfast hostelry of the best kind. Bijou accommodation, imaginative breakfast, courteous hospitality and comfortable facilities. The themed decor gave a funky feel to the well appointed room with all the amenities you would expect in a...

I got in after hours and the owner not only cheerfully greeted me but made sure I knew where all the great eating spots were. Then in the morning when I didn't leave as early as I thought I would he called to make sure I got some of the awesome breakfast. The room was comfortable, had a great tub...

We just returned back home from a one night stay at The Long Board Inn at New Symrna Beach. What a warm and comfortable experience. We chose Long Boards mostly because we were looking to take our fur babies with us and this seemed like the perfect fit. We were pleased beyond our expectations. Our room was very spacious and...

Stayed three nights and would have stayed longer, but we had to catch a plane and go home. Wonderful accomodations and evens better hosts. Owners John and Dee are second to none! New Smyrna Beach and this B&B are central to everything - Close enough to the Orlando atrractions, Daytona Beach, Cocoa, Cape Canavarel - Yet, not too close.

The entire place is charming. From the hand painted flowers on the walls to the gracious host to the great breakfast. Only2 blocks from downtown shops and restaurants. Will highly recommend this inn to everybody.

My wife and I had a great experience at the Longboard Inn. We decided on this location because it was dog friendly and only minutes from the beach. Having never stayed at a bed and breakfast before we did not know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Everyone was friendly, the breakfast was great and the environment was peaceful....

We were on our way to our 20th anniversary renewal of vows up in St. Augustine and we decides to stopover and spend the night in NSB. We had been to NSB several times but stayed at a B&B that has since closed, and on advise of our friend, decided to stay at the Longboard. Well, what a great choice!!...

Lots of good reasons to stay here but we stumbled on it because it is the perfect distance from the Port Canaveral cruise port. Every time we cruise we stay here along the way; have a great breakfast and arrive at your ship at the typical earliest boarding time. The rooms are really decorated very special and are very quiet...
