I have stayed here the past 4 years. This year I brought my husband and children and made a family trip out of it. There was 6 of us and we stayed in room 5. Having the full kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave etc made cooking for our family easy so we didn't have to eat out for every meal.... More

Dear Carolyn, We are very sorry you feel unfairly treated by our decision @ Gulf Tides Inn. We did try to work with you with regards to your accident/deposit etc but then you left it to the week before your arrival date to make your final decision not to come and unfortunately it was too late notice for us to...

It is in a great location, its great access to the beach, the trolley stop is so close, Ricks Reef next door for a great night of food & entertainment. We have made so many friends who... More

We stayed at GT Inn for the first time last week and it won't be our last! I'm lost for words since all the other reviews are spot on. I have no hesitation in recommending this fine establishment. Clearly, the owner Dave loves what he does, and has left no stone unturned to ensure a comfortable stay. Great value for... More

We have stayed at Gulf Tides Inn every year when we visit Florida and have never had a bad experience. A great place to stay, comfortable rooms, great pool, great hosts, steps from the beach and great prices. Washer and dryer on site. BBQ available for guests. Abundant lounge chairs. Extremely clean property.

We have stayed at Dave and Adeles place for the past five years. Twice in 2014 and we are already booked for 2015. I have travelled to many destinations and stayed at first class hotels. Bottom line, this is by far the most comfortable and friendly place I have ever stayed. Dave is very friendly and accommodating. If you are... More

Gulf Tides is a great base for playing in the St. Pete Beach area, great location, super clean simple rooms with a nice touch of old Florida. The limited number of rooms keeps it pretty low key. We stayed in unit 4, however you adjacent to Rick's Reef which generates some noise to the rooms right next to them. Dave... More
