It's all getting done now, so our winter guests will be as comfortable as can be, ready to enjoy their winter stay.

The 170+ hotels, lodges, inns, B&B’s, cottages and luxury condos that make up the Florida Superior Small Lodging Association are busy getting their properties ready for the guests that will be flowing in for the high season of February through April and for their yearly inspections which begin in January.

Every member of the Florida Superior Small Lodging Association (SSL) must pass a rigorous annual inspection that includes cleanliness, comfort, amenities and guest services that are conducted by an outside inspection company. Properties must pass in all categories in order to maintain their membership in the organization and properties that achieve a 100% score in housekeeping are awarded the organization’s prestigious White Glove Award. It is no surprise that FSSLA members receive wonderful reviews and are at the top of the lists on TripAdvisor and the other review sites.
