This is the third time my wife and I have vacationed at WannaB Inn. We have stayed in three different efficiencies and found each spacious and comfortable. The renovations have improved the facilities without losing the character of the resort. The location is unbeatable, right on the beach, bordered by a beautiful public park and walking distance to restaurants and... More

We got down there and from reading the previous reviews, the room, Dolphin 138, was somewhat dated. But, for the price, WannaB is the best deal around that area. Views of the gulf just steps away along with the bay on the other side. Staff is super friendly and so are the long term guests that we met. Sharks teeth... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Unit 138 is a charming little cottage style unit in the Dolphin Retreat. This is a basic efficiency unit that offers a clean, economical accommodation just a few feet from the beach. You said it beautifully and we're so glad you enjoyed yourself! More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are truly an "Old Florida" gem, but there is a wide range of units of different types and ages. There are folks who only want to be at the Sea Star, but next time perhaps try one of our newer buildings. The nice thing about the wannaB inn is... More

We had the best vacation ever at WBI. A great value right on the beach next to Stump Pass State Park. Relax, sunbathe, swim in two heated pools, find shells and shark teeth, watch sunrise on the Lemon Bay side of the property or spectacular sunsets on the Gulf side. Great fishing on both sides. Friendly, helpful staff. Cute retro... More

It was a little off the tourist trail but we were pleasantly surprised. Check-in went smoothly. The staff was very friendly. Our room was a 2 room suite in the Nautilus overlooking the beach and Gulf on the 4th floor. One of the bedrooms looked out into the gulf. One morning when we woke up, we looked out and saw... More

Being off the "tourist path" as you say, is a real plus. This is natural Florida. Folks such as yourselves find a hidden gem. So glad you found us! More

This was our second visit to the Wanna B Inn. Our previous visit was almost 3 years ago, when they were just beginning their renovations. We were very pleased with all of the updates we saw. We had 4 units in the Nautilus building, gulf front. Previously, we had stayed in ground floor units. I honestly can't say which unit... More

Very well said... which is better to have the sand in your toes or to have the best seat in the house. Those Nautilus balconies are hard to beat. We look forward to your next stay. Thank you for taking the time to write a review! More

Sand, sun and sea! We were so fortunate to have it all during our short 1 week stay through the recent New Year's holiday wedding festivities.
