It's an old Florida place to stay at if you want to be on the beautiful beach and take in the stunning sunsets, but don't expect any luxuries, fresh towels or late checkout. Unit #206 has been partially remodeled and has two king size beds, two baths, kitchen, sitting area and gulf view! A short drive or trolley ride to... More

We visited the Sandbar on recommendation. We are from the north. So being outdoors on the beach and enjoying a great meal and great service was over the top. The beach is beautiful. We walked the beach and came back to have a drink and enjoy the atmosphere. Highly recommend.

This was my family's first visit to Anna Maria Island and the Dream Inn. It was a great spot and located right on the beach. The staff was very courteous. The bed was comfortable and the ocean view was heavenly. Some of the furniture could definitely be updated/upgraded... But we didn't stay inside much anyway. It was nice having a... More

What's great about The Anna Maria Dream Inn? You can be in a sand chair on the gulf beach in less than 5 mins. from leaving your room. It's close to restaurants, shopping and St. Armand's Circle. The room was clean and had plenty of room with just enough kitchen. The staff took great care of us during our stay.... More

My husband's first time staying right on the beach. He sat up almost all night the first night looking out the sliding glass doors watching the surf. And have your camera ready for the breath taking sunsets. As senior citizens it was perfect for us. Easy walk to the water, great covered patio and easy access to the pool. The... More

What an amazing place! We spent all weekend hanging out on the beach with a cooler full of beer. Patio under the hotel makes for a good get away from the sun. BBQ grills on site made for cheap dinners. Wanted to stay longer. cheap rooms for the location. We'll be back!

Can not get any closer to the beach. Not a high end hotel by any means, but the rooms are clean, they have a huge swimming pool and a large covered patio for shade beside the pool. We went from the beach to the pool all afternoon. Rooms have full kitchens so bring your own groceries! Staff was friendly. My... More

I absolutely loved my stay at the Dream Inn. It has the most amazing private beach on Anna Maria Island. It seriously has the best location on the beach, it was a nice & relaxing place to stay with my friends for a girls weekend. Overall, the staff was welcoming and helpful. I had a great stay and I will... More

This was my first time staying at this hotel, the staff was friendly and very helpful. Great location, since it's right on the beach. They offer chair you could take to the beach, only bad part about that was you could only use the chair until 6 pm after that they are locked up. The only ice machine was located... More

We booked this hotel for our wedding so that the family could be close together. Let me begin with the positives. The rooms are spacious, clean, and the beach was beautiful. However, when it comes to management and customer service you receive less than accommodating service. The front desk staff is polite but highly mismanaged, disorganized, and incompetent. They made... More
