I had vacationed in nearby Indian Rocks about 6 years ago and was more than ready for a return visit. However, this time, we were traveling with a pet. So, the "pet friendly" advertising for this inn really captured my attention, as Florida is generally not very pet friendly. The hotel is located as gulf front as it gets. You... More

We are so happy that you enjoyed yourself. The issues that you raised to us are being addressed. Also, I am sorry for the confusion on the window. I didn't realize that the painting was gone from the bottom so that is also being taken care of. It is the little things that people mention that we are unaware of... More

We stayed at the Sun Burst Inn in December of 2015. The room was quaint, the bed was comfortable, and it has a small kitchen with pots, pans, and utensils provided. The motel is right on the beach with beach chairs provided. A number of good restaurants are close to the motel. We would return to this location.

Great get away to visit the beach and not be bothered by a lot of other folks. Small Inn with very few amenities. Basically you are paying for a place to sleep, cook food and enjoy the beach. It is very no frills. Not a place where you are going to stay in your room all day. No pool. This... More

We stayed here for 3 nights over the Thanksgiving holiday. Our accommodations were clean, and the location perfect. The view from our balcony was unmatched anywhere we have traveled. Being able to step out in the sand from our room was a delight. Plus we could watch our kids on the beach from the deck. Don't forget to bring Fido,... More

I arrived with my husband and daughter on 11/2/15 and stayed for 2 nights. PROS: We were able to check in early and upgrade to a room with an ocean view. The beach is steps away from any of the rooms and was not crowded. The Inn is right off a main road and easy to find. The room decor... More

We like small mom and pop places. This is a nice change from chain hotels. They had everything we needed, and the place was nice and clean. Right on the beach was very nice. It was quite. Will rent again.
