We stayed here for a weekend just before Christmas of last year. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the friendly staff that were always ready for any question or request, which you would expect at these prices. The building has a long and interesting history, has been well maintained and still maintains character from an earlier time. The food is... More

We stayed for a few days recently and it was our first visit. The place was charming but dated, the rooms were OK-- bed comfortable. We could not decide whether the decor was charming or just very dated and in need of a facelift. Staff very friendly, and food good-- but not inexpensive. Service was good, but not the level... More

The Gasparilla Inn was wonderful! We stayed in one of the cottages . The room was spacious, bright, cheery, and very clean! The beds were comfy. We had a larger cottage room, which included a small entry area with table and chairs, refrigerator , and microwave. The a/c was perfect. The grounds beautiful. The pool and beach club were great....

I loved everything about this place. We stayed in a very comfortable cottage beautifully decorated with white wicker, beadboard, trellis patterned carpeting, and tropical pictures and the beds were very comfortable. The century old inn is a stately pale yellow fortress from the past with delightful shops, beautiful sitting areas, a lively bar, and a gorgeous dining room. Service was... More

We just returned from a trip to this Inn. Unfortunately it was not up to the standards we had hoped for and read about. The front service staff had a ATTITUDE, like we were doing them a favor by staying there. Strike One When we got to our cottage room (not an entire cottage as their web site leads you... More

Imagine walking through a time portal to old Florida where folks were genteel manners flourished service prevailed relaxation resounded. You would begin to envision the atmosphere at the Gasparilla Inn at Boca Grande. We love staying at the cottages where you can park your golf cart outside and head out for a day at the beach or pool side at... More

We are lucky enough to be having our wedding at the Gasparilla Inn in Boca Grande this fall. We traveled down to meet with everyone and absolutely love the history and old style traditions of the place. The staff are great, the rooms gorgeous and the front porch is perfect for relaxing.

The hotel is beautiful, and the staff is great, but if you are looking for a beach vacation this would not be my first recommendation. The rooms do not have balcony's and you can not see the beach/ocean from your room. The pool/ beach club is about 3 blocks away which isn't a huge deal, but still inconvenient to have... More

My in-laws celebrated their 50th anniversary in April and a year ago we decided that the adult children and their spouses/significant others would go to Gasparilla and celebrate with them. We had a FABULOUS stay! All 4 couples stayed in one of the cottages on site. There were 4 individual rooms connected via hallways for privacy leading into a shared... More

We stayed in a cottage recently while fishing for tarpon. Fishing didn't work so well due to the fact that we have NO casting skill, but this property was very nice. For the days we needed, the main inn was not available, however our cottage was very quiet and very nice. Housekeeping was notably non-intrusive and very good, and the... More
