What a wonderful place - the Gasparilla Inn is a charming place, built in 1913, updated sympathetically where needed (aircon and the like), but so perfect it's like a dream world. The staff are courteous and professional and have clearly been well trained. The rooms are a good size. We were on the 2nd floor in a King Bed room... More

We loved every minute of our stay at the Gasparilla Inn. We were there with a large group. All our meals were wonderful, including a fabulous breakfast every day. The staff (mostly from Jamaica) was attentive and professional. The golf course was very scenic and lots of birdwatching on every hole, and we even saw dolphins! The course was also... More

Just returned from a stay at Gasparilla Inn & Club, a National Historic Hotel. Love this historic hotel each time we visit!, Superb food and excellently trained staff just make it better and better. The golf course may look short on the scorecard but those greens are not like anything I have EVER played! Multi-leveled and fast! And the Beach... More

We love this hotel and this was our first time staying in a cottage across from the hotel because we came with our two young children (3 year old and 1 year old). And we loved the cottage setup! We stayed in a king suite cottage and had plenty of room. It was a perfect setup for us. There was... More

My wife and I spent five nights at the Gasparilla Inn, March 1 thru March 6 of this year. We both felt that it was the nicest hotel we have enjoyed in all of Florida. While the price was very reasonable, the rooms were great, the food and service were simply outstanding. My wife had a great time walking the... More

The Gasparilla Inn is an "old World" resort in Florida. The inn is old, 1913, and the clientele are very respectful of the rules of the hotel, jackets at dinner, collared shirts in the inn, etc. I love this place and have visited several times. The dining room has become a gourmets' delight. Boca Grande is old Florida and the... More

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
