Convenient location, friendly innkeepers - Len and Bev give you the insider scoop on bargains and spots to see. We stayed in Tarpon, which has two bedrooms - at front of house. Nice outside patio area in front. Don't count on the internet, it was quite sporadic. Easy walking distance to various restaurants, shops, and beach. The biking/golf cart path... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week in August. Len and Bev were very friendly and helpful. We've been to Boca many times, but this was our first time staying the Palmetto. Air conditioning was nice and cold. The room was clean when we arrived. The suits was spacious and we had more than enough towels and space... More

We picked this location after reading other reviews. Very pleased with everything. Number one of course is the location, second would be cleanliness and thirdly the hosts. We booked during off season so we had the island almost to ourselves. We sat outside on the front patio on two separate evenings. Most popular sight is the ever popular golf cart... More

We enjoyed this trip immensely! We booked it last minute for a quick getaway and it was really inexpensive. It was cozy and the innkeepers are very friendly. While it could use updating, the space is very spacious and offered everything we needed to feel at home. Since its in the middle of town, we could walk everywhere. Or rent... More

We stayed here last holiday season and it was great. The island is a hidden gem - lovely beaches, cute town and a beautiful location. We liked staying in a place with our own kitchen. This is more like a little apartment than a b & B experience. The hosts are very nice and we lucked out with warm, sunny... More

I've stayed in every room in the place. It's not the most comfortable accommodation but it is definitely the cleanest. And that's worth points. Len and Bev are terrific hosts. The location is excellent and the price can't be beaten. TOURISTS-PLEASE DO NOT KILL THINGS ON THE BEACH! STARFISH AND SAND DOLLARS DO NOT LIVE ON LAND!

Having come down from Stoughton,Ma. to attend a wedding at the Boca Pass Beach Club, all the hotels had holds and what room were available were quoted at $400. to $500 a night. Maybe if it were the Taj Mahal but not here. Found out about The Palmetto and made a call. Bev was so wonderful on the phone. Made... More

Staying at the Palmetto Inn is pleasant and comfortable...you are within walking distance to all shops and beach. If you want to travel the island you can rent a golf cart at the corner. Bev & Len are flexible and attentive. History and happiness can be found and explained by them. Many years of family ownership makes for security reliability.... More

I traveled to Boca Grande without hotel reservations. When I got there, I called the numbers listed in one of the tourist guides and The Palmetto had the best rates I could find (Gasparilla Island is an expensive place to stay). The owners are gracious and hospitable and my apartment was spotlessly clean and well-appointed. I had the Snook suite,... More
