If you are looking for glitz and the latest in-crowd thrills, go elsewhere. The Gasparilla Inn is a model of understated old world elegance and beautifully run. Clean, comfortable rooms and suites are available in the grand old main building or in dozens of cottages nearby. Most guests walk or take rented golf carts to the hotel's amenities: an excellent...

Our first visit to Boca Grande, Florida and Gasparilla Inn. Old Inn, but nice. Clean, comfortable. Most everything within walking distance. Food and shopping within walking distance. Lots to do! Or not! Your choice.😃

We decided to spend one night at the Gasparilla Inn to celebrate a big anniversary while we were on our way to another location in Florida. The Inn is beautiful and historic, a little reminiscent of the Greenbrier in West Virginia (on a much smaller scale). Impeccable furnishings and service, a very comfortable bed, delicious dinner at The Pink Elephant.... More

Great service and hospitality. I was in the lobby very early doing work and everyone who came by said good morning and offered to get me a cup of coffee. Many examples of folks at the resort going out of their way. Great stop for every generation.

A wonderful destination in a sleepy but charming village. Rooms are comfortable with really nice beds. Curtains are not blackout, so light comes in early. Cottages have lanais with mini-fridge and microwave, a big plus. Connected living rooms are wonderful and an added bonus. Staff are really helpful and pleasant. Unfortunately, we saw far too much of the maintenance crew... More

The rooms, the grounds and the people who work there are all great! Looked forward to tasty breakfast every day. Good location so can quickly and easily walk to restaurants. Living room in cottages were comfortable and had gas fireplace. Only real complaint is that WiFi was spotty at best and unavailable at worst.

This historic hotel is so well maintained you forget it is on the historic registry. The restaurant is not over priced but could demand it with their choices, presentation and service. It is a step back in time but never lacking in modern indulgences. There are several accomodation packages and any is fine as the inn is still the centerpiece.... More

The inn is lovely; the entire staff was so accommodating. If you enjoy a quiet destination with full attention to detail this is the place. Staying in the Inn is key; if vacationing with family or a group the cottages would be fine but you would miss the feel of the inn completely. Lots of sunny spots to sit, tea... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for five nights celebrating our babymoon. It was our first visit to the Inn and we stayed across the street in one of the charming cottages which we loved! The staff was superb, and the Inn and grounds are beautiful. Food was good, BZ's was a nice place for my husband to... More

We were booked in a "cottage" room. On arrival we noticed that the "cottages" are numerous and spread for blocks around the Inn. Each cottage can have one to eight guests and at check in we asked if we could have a room in the Inn. After much hemming and hawing, we were given a room in the Inn, which... More
