The quiet, romantic 18-room Pillars Hotel feels like it could be someone's waterfront home, with its well-kept grounds, casual, beach-y decor, lovely terraces, and bright but small rooms and bathrooms. The hotel's highlight is its courtyard pool, which features a beautiful view of the Intracoastal Waterway, but those wanting to stay directly on the beach may consider the Pelican Grand Beach Resort, which is larger but has a similar beach-cottage feel in the rooms and restaurants.
