I chose this Inn due to its proximity to the Gulfport Casino which was the venue for my son's wedding. The guests all had a good time and understood that it is a quaint & funky hotel so they didn't expect five star service. My only complaint was that the housekeeper had to be told to make up the room.... More

I had a wonderful stay. My nephew had his wedding rehearsal dinner here. The wedding party all had rooms here. My sister and I were on the third floor in a suite, it suited us just fine. The bed was comfy, the air conditioner is right at your head, on the third floor you are thankful for the air conditioner.... More

Had a very good experience here; very nice. Breakfast was standard continental. We only spent one Saturday night, and Sunday morning there weren't any service people in sight, but that wasn't a huge issue for us. We just found our way to the dining area and helped ourselves! The history of the place is very cool, and the location can't... More

We wanted to send our parents for a special weekend to celebrate their birthdays. Special it was! The owners and Rose took great care to put together a package that made it super special for our parents while still within a reasonable budget. From the minute they arrived it was one amazing experience after another from massages at the spa... More

We decided to take a get away weekend at the Peninsula Inn located in the eclectic city of Gulfport. We love Gulfport! It's a funky little arts village town on Bocca Ciega Bay, with quaint shops and really good restaurants particularly Isabella's. I highly recommend the mussels for an app, and the scallops; delicious. We sat on the veranda as... More

We only stayed 1 night in this very quaint Inn. We loved the relaxed feeling we had staying in one of the 12 very comfortable rooms. Its location to Fort De Soto Beach, Dali Museum and the Trop make it all the more attractive. The resturant menu was mouth watering, although we didn't get to sample it this time, we... More

I totally agree with Fredric Z's recent review! We live in north Tampa, an hour away, but so far hadn't visited Gulfport overnight. Gulfport is the closest thing to Key West we have found on Florida's west coast. The Inn fits right in with the town's laid-back charm. Our suite was comfortable, and the food at Isabella's was first-rate. Our... More

I came in for the air conditioning and stayed for this piece of old Florida in the Summertime. Cool old school bar, great piano player, ice cold scotch on the rocks. All on a hot humid Gulfport night. Come and enjoy but don't change it at all. Relax like back in the day and appreciate.

My wife and I live only an hour from the Peninsula Inn but we love coming down to stay at the Inn and enjoy Gulfport, which is like a mini-Key West. Great weekend vacation with great Inn to stay the night, great food at Isabella's and fun town in Gulfport. Highly recommended

This was our first time to Gulfport. We're local to Tampa and wanted a beach weekend for the holiday but the St Pete hotels were charging higher prices because of the holiday weekend so we found this place online. We had a lovely stay in this charming Inn. The staff was warm and inviting. We stayed in the Princess suite... More
