Reading reviews and setting your expectations ahead of time is key to the Gulf Beach Inn. Overall, it's a good place, with a reasonable price that is close to the popular areas of Clearwater Beach. If you go in with the expectation of the Hyatt Regency, you'll be frustrated and disappointed. However, you have to realize this is an older,... More

This place is scruffy, no off street parking with only parking meters at $1.25 an hour from 6am to 10pm and the managers are rude, I would never recommend it to anybody at any cost and suggest you avoid it at all costs. The office is never open, they don't answer the phone or return calls and happy to leave... More

My stay at the Gulf Beach Inn was exactly what I expected it to be. It was not a luxuriant resort by any means, it was simply basic. I got exactly what I paid for: a place to get some sleep at night with a functioning shower. Otherwise I spent the majority of my time away from the motel and... More

DO NOT STAY HERE. The location is great but the service from owners is not worth it. I came in with three other over 21 year olds and the owner was immediately rude and prejudiced against us. He actually told us that he believed we were there to do something illegal. There was absolutely no basis for him to say... More

I booked this room for one night so I could be near the beach. I paid $120 for a room with 2 beds. When I arrived, the room had one bed, not even queen size, and it did not even have a comforter on it. I had four people in my room. There was no phone in the room. The... More

Jay who works the front desk is very pleasant and also very accommodating . We have stayed at the Gulf Beach Inn for two vacations. The rooms are always clean and the King size bed was very comfortable. Sandy and Jay are always so friendly and treat us just like family. Also the location is close to the beach and... More

I usually do not write bad reviews, but this hotel is a real dump. All of the hotels at the beach were booked, so I went for this rat hole. I paid $120 per night. When I was trying to check in at 4pm room was not ready, even though check in is at 3pm. Apparently clerk at the front... More
