We recently spent one night and day at the Sun Burst Inn. I must say that we were definitely happy. Our room was not very big but perfect for the two of us. Very Clean, comfy bed and on the beach, what else can you ask for? Parking is limited to one car per room so don't expect to have... More

So sorry if you had a yappy neighbor. We try to tell people not to leave their dogs alone if they bark but they evidently can't hear the dog so certainly can't hear us complaining LOL. Our manager leaves her cell phone number on the office door and has come back on more than one occaision to call owners to... More

This is a cute hotel on the beach just steps away from the water. It's not your typical hotel, it's even better with an at home feel. The room was very spacious with a full kitchen and a tv in the kitchen and the bedroom. Not a lot of hotels accept dogs but I was so excited they did. The... More

Family ( 3 generations ) vacation. 2 super cute, clean and functional rooms. One with full kitchen, the other an efficiency. Everything we hoped for was there. The beach just outside the doors, all sorts of chairs for the beach, umbrellas if you needed them and a fire pit for nighttime gatherings. Outdoor showers to clean the sand off were... More

This small inn is a great find. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The beach access is phenomenal, and the hotel has beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels and beach toys for guests to use. The latter was really nice for us, as we were traveling from a distance and obviously couldn't bring our own. The staff was very helpful... More

Right on the beach. Walk out your door and stroll for miles on the sandy beaches. Watch the fabulous sunsets and catch a glimpse of dolphins offshore. It was our home base for 8 days. Quiet and relaxing a great get away. Not fancy but it is a great place to return to.

This was our fifth year at the Sunburst Inn, at Indian Shores. This is a gem of old Fla. with only 12 units. No, you don's get mints on your pillow or daily maid service, but you have clean towels and linens as needed. They truly let you make yourself at home. The rooms are very livable for any length...

I am very happy to review the Sun Burst Inn. We had to rent a place last minute over spring break. There was extremely limited availability in the area for the date we needed. We rolled the dice and I am so glad we found this property! Our family stayed in 2 rooms for a very quick trip over from... More

I love reviews like yours! We consider ourselves a hidden gem as we have condos going both ways down the beach so we end up with a semi-private beach. I could probably go out there in a speedo and the only people that would go blind from the experience would be my own guests LOL! I hope that you can... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a long Valentine's weekend and we had a great time! Our room was nice and very clean. We loved being so close to the Ocean. Amy was wonderful and very helpful. We will definately be returning and bringing our kids with us.

We had a wonderful view from our waterfront room...and then it went downhill after that. Dirty, dingy, dumpy best describes this place. See pictures. Sign by office read "all new beds" yet ours was about 20 years old at least and gave us back issues after. Tiled shower painted over, kitchen table painted over too, both had paint flaking off....

Hello; Sorry you did not enjoy your stay. The beds are definitely new and we paid over $16,000 for them 3 months ago. Yours is the first complaint we have had on them.
