GF and me spent 4 great days here in June. As a Fl native living in NC for last 15 years (army) and former resident of Indian Rocks Beach (was a bartender at Crabby's in the late 80's) the place and friendliness of the staff brought back memories of Fl the way it was from my younger years, which is...

We enjoyed our 2 night break at this inn. The rooms were clean & tidy, we were surprised at the amount of space we had. The terrace outside was perfect & the view breathtaking. The downsides were the very uncomfortable bed & the noise from the A/C (that was easily sorted by turning down the settings slightly). We would certainly... More

I wanted my grandchildren to experience staying ON the beach, and this little place did it! The room is compact and old school - TV is an upgrade - but the beach is the focus. It was paradise. We had it basically to ourselves. There were floats, buckets, shovels, and chairs for our use - no fee. The staff was... More

Directly on the beach, perfect for watching the gorgeous sunsets off Indian Shores beach. We enjoyed the white sandy beach and warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico just steps from our room. Impeccably clean accommodations with full kitchen and separate bedroom with an original wall fresque done by a local artist and furniture and décor reminiscent of old Florida... More

We arrived late to find the owners waiting for us, We were greeted very warmly, they were extremely friendly and helpful. The owners thought of everything, provided beach chairs, umbrellas. beach toys., gas grill. We were just steps from the beach, had an amazing and relaxing time. The room was clean and comfortable, the outside deck was facing the Ocean... More

We arrived early and were able to check in, we actually were given an upgraded room on the beach!!! We were also able to check out a little later, due to my grandson being extremely hard to wake up in the mornings and 10 am is his usual wake up time. The beach was five minutes from my sister and...

Thank you so much for the great review. We always appreciate it when our guests have a good time at our place. If Amy was a little off while you were here it was probably because of the room #16 renovation not going quite as planned LOL! We hope you can come back soon! Michael, Marilyn, Amy & Laura More

My husband and I stayed at the Sun Burst Inn for 5 nights in a one bedroom unit, which also had a living area and small kitchen. We wanted a place that we could walk out our door and be on the beach, and this was it, right on the beach - no more than 10 steps and on the... More

The owners, staff & other guests were all very friendly. Pretty much had the beach all to ourselves in the immediate vicinity. Steps from the beach and the hotel allows for travelers to use their beach chairs, umbrellas and beach toys while you are there -- which was great for us since we couldn't bring all of that with us....

So glad you had a good time. It's all about relaxing when you come visit us on the beach! Yep, we are tight when it comes to parking, one of the downsides to the old style hotels from the 1940's. Part of it is because they had smaller vehicles back then LOL. Anyway, I hope you can come back soon... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Families & pets are always welcome! We want you to relax and enjoy your stay with us. Weddings, renewal of vows and memorials on our beach are welcome. We have had more than one happy event here and, in fact, the owners renewed their vows after over 30 years of marriage. Sun Burst Inn is located in Indian Shores, Florida directly on the beautiful beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Our hotel is within easy reach of shops, restaurants and all you need for a wonderful vacation experience with a regular bus service at your door step if you need it. Our inn has eleven units, all with either kitchenettes or full kitchens, so it's your choice depending on what you feel you need. All units in our two story beachfront facility are either directly facing the world famous Gulf beaches, or a few steps from the beach. Enjoy Florida at its best the way it used to be: quaint hotels, friendly owners AND with all the modern conveniences. That's what you'll get when you visit The Sun Burst Inn. Pristine white beaches, splashing Gulf waters, and spectacular sunsets. All just steps out your room. Visit us soon and find out what the "real" and "friendly" Florida is all about! Lounge chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers, beach towels & beach toys all supplied with NO RESORT FEE. The Gulf Beach area provides many fun things to do because we are within easy driving range of attractions like Busch Gardens, Clearwater Aquarium (Home of Winter the Dolphin), The Salvador Dali Museum, Lowry Park Zoo and for shopping there's John's Pass Village and the Ellenton Outlet Center. ... more   less
