Location, location, location! The Inn is in the heart of downtown, just steps away from all the award winning restaurants and unique shops that our guests love.
The Inn is in a downtown neighborhood that locals refer to as the "So-Go District", where you will find specialty art shops, clothing & shoe boutiques, vintage shops, and great places to grab a bite to eat and enjoy a craft beer or specialty coffee. Right down the street is the beach, where you can relax and maybe catch a sunset. Around the corner is Government Street, with lively bars, and stand-out music (plus amazing dining options). We are one block from the Walter Anderson Museum, which is well worth a visit. The Inn has a distinctly southern spirit, encouraging you to slow down, relax, and take in all the beauty and charm of the Gulf Coast.
