About

Two things make a great vacation, a real fun destination and super accommodations. Here at Inn on the Drive we promise you both. Tony and Walt wish to extend to you a warm welcome to our new Bed and Breakfast. Inn on the Drive was completed in June 2014 and opened shortly after. As you browse through our photo gallery you will notice our B&B is brand new construction. The building itself is a two story structure with two rooms on the ground floor and two additional on the second level; a large sundeck on the second floor is open to all guests. Enjoy your time in the Florida sun or relax in the shade on our breezy covered patio. Every day is a pool day here at the Inn. Our new salt water pool is heated during the cool months of winter and chilled in the summer time.

A wonderful ending

5 on August 15, 2016

I had been on a six week, seventeen state, 4,668 mile solo road trip by the time I reached Inn on the Drive. To say I was tired would be an understatement. From the moment I got there, I felt like family. I was only staying a couple days so I wasn't going to drag everything into my room, but Tony was so helpful he loaded pretty much everything I had in my car and trudged it into my room. Then refused to take a tip when we got to the room The room was lovely, though I will note that much of it was built for tall people. Now, at 4'11" I expect some things to be out of my reach. It was not a big deal and both Tony and Walt assured me if I needed help, they were just a phone call away. I was in the area to visit (and party) with some friends. One of the perfect things about the Inn is the location. Just steps from Wilton Drive, the main street, so we were able to go out and have a few drinks without worrying about driving home. The biggest problem I had while I was there was, after one (okay, okay four or five) too many Fireballs, my friend had to open the gate for me because I couldn't quite get the key in the lock. It was wonderfully quiet and I was able to sleep late after my night out. Never heard a peep from any other guests. The afternoon dip in the saltwater pool was just what I needed to get rid of the last remnants of a hangover and prepare for my next night out. I did not take advantage of their breakfast, though I'll give it a try next time. There will DEFINITELY be a next time as this was one of the sweetest places I've staying in. It's so nice to go to a small hotel and not have to worry about the condition or service. In case I haven't made myself clear, this place, and its owners, were terrific and it will be my go-to place whenever I'm in the area.

AWESOME LOCATION AND OWNERS

Inn on the Drive is in the best location for all the nightlife of Wilton Manors, plus the owners are the most friendly, gracious hosts ever!!! The room was clean, the towels were big and fluffy and smelled awesome. The pool is cooled - so even in the hottest months it is perfect. Great place to stay. We found our new oasis in FLL.

Best Stay in Wilton Manors

I always stay at Inn on The Drive any time they have rooms available. The owners are beyond accommodating and truly wonderful people. It's within walking distance of restaurants and any other night life you may want as well. The pool is heated and always enjoyable and the rooms are always quiet and relaxing. I feel sad every time we leave, whether I am staying for work or pleasure. Light breakfast and coffee are available if you want it each morning.

Innkeeper Response
