This was a great stay just wish there had been more than only one night available. We stayed in a small but completely efficient studio that walked right out onto the docks. Very clean and had everything we needed including available tennis courts. Would definitely book again. Would be perfect for a longer stay with kitchen and location.

Stayed for 3 years. Quaint inn, decent rooms, nice little pool. Quiet guests, most who have stayed here for 15+ years. A very nice family purchased the hotel about 2010 or so, and were investing some money into it. There is beach access across the road via a path. A dock out back so you could have a boat should...

The Dolphin Inn is located directly on the back Bay and right across the street from the Gulf of Mexico! We hung out at the pool, kayaked in the back Bay and enjoyed a beautiful sunset on the beach, it was perfect!!! The rooms have everything you need and the staff was awesome :)

The owner and his staff are sincerely friendly and helpful people who will make sure your stay is incredible. We stayed for a week in early January of 2016 and became stranded after a snow/ice storm back home in the Chicago area resulted in two canceled flights. The Dolphin Inn had no vacancies, so the owner called his guests who... More

Great spot if you like a motel/Inn with all the comforts of home. Inexpensive, pool was sparkling clean and well laid out, rooms perfect and very well equipped, the grounds very nicely kept and the location superb. Closer to the beach than we've been at most all-inclusive resorts. Super friendly and helpful management...a real gem. We'll go back for sure!

For weeks prior to arriving I was hopeful I would be as satisfied as "MOST" people staying at the Dolphin Inn, First and most important, the location is fantastic!, extremely friendly and helpful staff and other vacationers! Sure its not directly on beach, but right across the street a beautiful white sandy beach. The water view (canal overlooking the bay... More

The reviews of this place were good and the price very reasonable. The view of the canal from our room was lovely and the bed was comfortable. Other than that, we realized very quickly that we weren't going to feel comfortable during our two nights there and had made a mistake. It was "bare bones" in that most of the... More

people in charge were very nice. I was very uncorfortable due too the very old, dirty looking chairs and sofa. I had to borrow a bed spread and spread it over the dirty looking sofa. That kind of made us uncomfortable about the beds but they look clean and we had no problem. Also when we came back late at... More
