We always stay on Longboat Key for vacation, but usually at a different resort. Our normal resort was booked so we tried the Wicker Inn. It was the same great location and the beach was just as beautiful, but the cottage was a little small for our liking. It was a 2 bedroom and 2 bath unit. The bathrooms are... More

We love coming back to the Wicker Inn every year...Its like it's own little private oasis, with a lovely pool in the center of the old Florida style bungalows. The units are kept very clean with plenty of beach and bath towels and comfortable bedding. The kitchens are outfitted to make cooking simple meals easy. The Wicker Inn has a... More

I returned to the Wicker Inn after a 4 year hiatus...a much needed freshening up of the Inn made this stay just perfect! Steps to beach and pool...wonderful dining options as close as across the street, Longboat, Sarasota, Anna Maria, Bradenton Beach, etc... A great setting to do everything, or nothing at all. We met longtime guests, and new families... More

We just stayed a week at the Wicker Inn and had a fabulous stay. This charmimg little inn is right on the beach. The accommodations were perfect. These units are "housekeeping" units & very well stocked, comfortable and clean. The grounds are immaculate. There were several young families there with little kids, which was great fun for us middle-agers. We... More

My husband and I just finished our 8th stay at The Wicker Inn and had another fabulous visit! The Wicker Inn is a quaint old Florida type inn right on the beach. It is clean, well kept and accessible to many restaurants (which you can walk to), and activities. We love the ambiance and have made friendships with several returning... More

We stayed at the Wicker Inn for one week in January and could not be more pleased with our accommodations. The suites are clean, comfortable; making us feel at home. The staff is so wonderful about making certain that our stay was perfect. The pool outside your door is beautiful and you are steps from the Gulf. We'll be back... More

This is our second stay at the Wicker Inn and we were very pleased to find it as pleasant a stay as two years ago. We were relieved that there is now a good wifi service in the suites. The grounds are lovely and immaculately maintained. The units are spotless and comfortable. It is like staying at a cottage on... More

We stayed two nights at this wonderful Inn right on the beach at Longboat Key. The staff were most welcoming, the accommodation excellent and the location superb. We met a number of guests who return there every year and with good reason. Harry's restaurant and deli across the road are very convenient on this quiet stretch of coast road.

We have been going to the wicker inn for 15 years now and it never disappoints. It is peaceful, relaxing, and unpretentious. When we 'need' a vacation this is where we go. It is close to things to do, but the area around the inn is quiet. Our kids love the park across the street too.
