I must say that this was a great stay for my 50th Birthday Party with family and friends - we rented (3) rooms # 19,17 & 16 - with no complaints. The ladies at the front desk took care of every thing we needed. I will be coming back to the SBI for many future trips my family members really... More

We enjoyed our previous visit so much we returned for a longer stay. This time we stayed in a one bedroom unit on the second floor (#13). The bedroom was roomy with lots of shelves. The living area had a table, chairs and sleeper couch. The kitchenette was a one piece combination stove, oven, sink, refrigerator unit in the living... More

The beach was beautiful! The price was good (50% off Trip Advisor). The location was nice and quiet. The room was cramped for the 3 of us (suppose to accommodate 4), had to sit a bit sideways on the toilet - very small bathroom, no Toilet paper, owner walked right in our room (lucky I was dressed and he did...

Hi again; I am so sorry about the accidental walk in, but as I explained somehow the wrong dates were showing on the computer and it showed the room as open. On the number of people the room sleeps, maybe you forgot to extend the futon in the room. They are brand new and are queen size with innerspring mattresses... More

Spent a whole week at this hotel. From day one we had issues with the management. The room had sand on the floors as soon as you walked in. We saw multiple mice. Had nice droppings in the kitchen. I was electrocuted by the stovetop in the kitchen. I asked management to fix any of these issues and they said... More

Hello; Ah yes, the review from the person who never came and never asked for towels, toilet paper, trash bags, or paper towels and ended up taking our stove apart. I have to admit, you set a new record on that one. We asked you to make sure the burners were set correctly and let us know so we could... More

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...
