My daughter and I stayed here for a 3 night getaway. We paid $155/night and one of those days the room was never serviced. Other day it was serviced after 1:30 but the day we left it was promptly done @11am. The tone was set upon our arrival when Sheila chastised us for helping ourselves to beach towels without asking...

Thanks for taking time to write about your experience at Inn on the Beach, nhr_carey. I apologize for the one day we missed servicing your room; clearly that was a mistake and not up to the standard we set for ourselves. I could have perhaps elaborated on the liquid pure cane that is provided for our complimentary daily coffee service,... More

We stayed during peak spring break season. When I booked the room last August I was impressed with all of the great reviews for this place. We usually stay in a particular hotel in Treasure Island but it was booked. We arranged for late arrival and the keys were in the unlocked Sunflower room as promised. When we opened the... More

We are also disappointed that you were not happy with your stay at Inn on the Beach. We work hard to maintain clean and comfortable rooms and to do whatever we can to make our guests’ Pass-a-grille experience all that they want it to be, and more. I apologize for the mildew on the shower curtain, which is clearly a... More

We stayed at the Inn last week for two nights and will definitely be back. If you are a beach person, you can't beat the location....just a very short distance across the street, and there's the beautiful beach! We stayed in the Sunflower Room and were pleased with the accommodations, although next stay, I think we will try and get... More

Judi and I have been going here for about ten years. One of her sisters, who used to live in Tampa recommended it to us. We try to get down once or twice a year for some real relaxation. Sheila, the Innkeeper is a most excellent hostess. She will go the extra mile to make your stay at the Inn... More

If you've never spent time in Pass-A-Grille, you're missing one of the best beach experiences in Pinellas County. This stretch is unobstructed beach, no developments at all once you cross the bridge to the sand. And no high-rises on the other side of the road either. Traffic and noise are minimal. The Inn, just steps away from the Gulf, has... More

Stayed here two nights at Thanksgiving. Unit was cute, and clean. TV was about a 17inch which was not great to watch from the bed. Unit was updated and close to everything on the island. Directly across from the beach. If you are a large person, do not rent this unit as the bathroom is extremely small, felt like a... More

My wife and I stayed at Inn on the Beach for 7 nights in early November. We stayed in the Love Shack room. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Bathroom and kitchen were also very clean. The bathroom has a stand-up shower, no tub. The Love Shack is one of the most private rooms they offer.... More

This is a fantastic location for a quiet getaway. The Inn itself was charming and has wonderful interiors. The outside can use some updating to the landscaping and patio area. Being so close to the beach, the exteriors seemed aged and weathered and could certainly benefit from a covered patio area and more modern patio furniture and finishes. I stayed... More

First of all, Pass A Grille is paradise so that adds appeal to any inn or hotel located there. That being said, Inn on the Beach is lovely and charming. Location is outstanding and so are the views. We stayed in the Spoonbill. On the plus side, this room was updated and clean. It also had floors (not carpet) which... More

Just came back from a short beach get away. Sheila was very friendly and helpful for finding local seafood restaurants. The Inn was very clean, very quiet. The beach was just across the street. We had our own patio. Sheila provided coffee in the mornings of our stay. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to friends.
