Accommodations in the New Smyrna Beach area range from beautiful boutique inns to quaint oceanfront condos. Many of these accommodations are unique, offering different amenities and an atmosphere that makes them special in their own way. Among hotels, condominiums and campgrounds, the New Smyrna Beach area also has beautiful bed and breakfasts that can suite any personality. In October, two local bed and breakfasts were awarded as some of the top accommodators in the nation through competition and recognition.

The Night Swan Intracoastal Bed & Breakfast recently won $25,000 while competing against three other hotels on the Travel Channel’s Hotel Impossible: Showdown. Hotel Impossible: Showdown is a winner takes all competition, where four hotels, inns or B&B’s go head to head for a $25,000 grand prize. Hotel expert Anthony Melchiorri follows the four hoteliers as they spend the night in each other’s establishment judging and critiquing property details and service, both positive and negative. The hoteliers then award up to five stars for each accommodation while also rating the amenities, hospitality and overall experience. The property with the highest score wins the $25,000.


We are ecstatic that the winner of the “Stone Crab Cold Florida” episode is a B&B located right in our own backyard! Sited directly on the Intracoastal Waterway, the Night Swan Intracoastal Bed & Breakfast offers breathtaking views with a relaxing atmosphere and friendly service. With two historic homes and a guest cottage, the Night Swan makes its own cozy little compound with 16 guest rooms. It is also a pet-friendly bed and breakfast and offers many amenities for our guests including a delicious gourmet breakfast served daily with fresh baked goods. The proximity to the shore allows guests to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. The Schooner Ondine is a historic ship docked at the Night Swan’s port. Whether it is adventure or relaxation you’re seeking out on the water, the Night Swan offers five boat slips for guests, allowing them to get out on the water and enjoy all that New Smyrna Beach has to offer.

Additionally, New Smyrna Beach not only snagged one national bed and breakfast award, but two! The Black Dolphin Inn was awarded 2nd place in the Alternative Accommodation category as part of the 2017 trivago Awards. For the very first time, revealed the best hotels in the United States and it was based entirely on guest reviews. Chosen for their outstanding customer service, ranking and performance, the trivago Awards 2017 recognized the 10 best properties in America in four different categories; 5-Star, 4-Star, 3-Star, and Alternative Accommodation.

Johannes Thomas, Managing Director at trivago said: “We aggregate and analyze more than 175 million hotel reviews from websites all over the world. This gives us strong insights into what hotels are particularly good at.” He added: “Our trivago awards recognize those hoteliers who deliver an exceptional experience to their guests, and we are proud and delighted to award those achievements.” We are so proud to have a local bed and breakfast receive such a high national achievement!
