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

We stayed for a week for Spring Break with our girls. It was a great place to stay. Very accommodating. Needed to provide a few more towels for bathroom. Bring your own beach towels! Right on the beach. Clean rooms. Stayed poolside but Ocean view is worth extra money if you want to spend it. Lots of fishing going on.... More

We were at this hotel for a family wedding and we probably had 1/2 of the rooms reserved. The only positive aspect is that it's on the beach. Our a/c in the bedroom didn't work. It was never fixed while we were there making sleeping difficult. They messed up several of our reservations despite confirmations. Arbitrary rules about beach chairs... More

Do not got to this hotel!!!! Over prced for what its worth!! They do not answer phones, the front desk has to tend to other responsiblities on the site. Upper management needs to learn how to manage a property. The management is horrible, starting with the upper manangement. I beleive her name is Karen. With all the mistakes and inconvienced...
