Stayed one week and had all the conveniences at a modest price. A quick jot to the beach - beautiful white sand and clean ( much cleaner than the beaches in front of the bigger and pricier hotels). Dave is great and connects and accommodates all of his guests. Never felt the need to go out to eat - grilled... More

We could not have been happier with the accommodation. Dave is an amazing manager, more like a caring host who aims to please his flock. The inn is small enough to feel cozy, large enough to afford privacy. The pool is super clean and heated to the most comfortable temperature. Thank you, Dave!!

Sorry Dave I am so late in writing this! Our experience was fantastic. Starting from the booking process: We booked Gulf Tides from Scotland. Dave and Adele were very generous with their time. They let my Mom (who lives in St Petersburg) come and check out the place for us ahead of time. They answered all of my many questions... More

It was a nice clean, and spacious room.The pool area was very nice, and the other guests were very friendly. The Inn was close to the beach, 2 minute walk. The Inn was next... More

We returned to this little charmer after 8 years to find it updated, clean, and just as wonderful as the first time. Dave is a great host. Just off the main street, the beach is a 2 block walk, restaurants are plentiful. If you want to get away from the highrises, try it out!

Returned again to share our vacation with Dave and Adele and we had another fabulous time ! As with most of the reviews on here the accommodation is clean, comfortable and functional for all your holiday needs. The pool area has new furniture to lounge around on after a hard day in the sunshine. Dave is always on hand to... More

Just love this family run business. Half a block from the wonderful beach and a stone's throw from loads of good eating and drinking spots. 4 miles from Johns Pass. Family in business. Dave is super helpful and can't do enough to help. Highly recommended.

This isn't your usual hotel room. It is a retro "motel" with 10 units built around a swimming pool. If you want something different than your usual hotel room, you have got to stay at the Gulf Tides Inn. The rooms are very clean, though not perfect. Our shower head could have used some attention and it isn't "state of... More
