LOVE this place. This is my second year staying here. There is a group of 7of us that meet here and have a wonderful time always. Coach Jay and Mrs A (Sandy) were very accommodating to anything we needed. They gave us excellent recommendations on places to eat again this year, Loved every place we went! The location is close...

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

I'd definitely recommend to all ages and families to stay here. The hotel itself has real charm and character. It's a great alternative to the large hotels on Clearwater Beach. "Coach Jay" the Inn Manager and his wife Sandy were friendly, professional and most accommodating in make our extended stay a pleasant experience. They offered so many great tips and... More

We would recommend the Gulf Beach Inn to any friend or family member for a relaxing affordable weekend amongst genuine people. Is it the Hyatt? No... but does a hotel like that treat you like extended family? Does the Ritz Carlton even remember your name after check-in? You get much much more in true value at the Gulf Beach Inn... More

Guy at the front desk was the laziest and unfriendliest hotel staff I ever encountered! He charged us more than it said at my confirmation and was totally ignorant of understanding me! After not even pretending to listen to my concern he told me that we could stay somewhere else if we wanted to. Hotel was decent but that rudeness... More

As mentioned before, do not believe the fake reviews. This hotel is quite possibly the worst hotel in the area. The manager is only worried about taking your money, and once he has it he doesn't care about any complaints you might have. Our room was tiny, cramped and the "king-sized" bed was actually a queen. The sheets were horrid,... More

Immediately outside of our front door ther was a furnished deck with a great view of an attractive pool area .The facility had everything we needed. It was clean and comfortable, within easy walking distance of the beach and town.... More
