Anna Maria Island Beach Front Accomodations?

Hi, I would like to be down there Jul 2-9 or thereabouts and wonder if I can still find a place with a gulf view on the beach. I stayed in the area before and was in OK places that were very economical, but still kinda crummy. One had no pool and the other had one that never seemed to change the water in their small pool. I guess it was "old Florida?"

Will I still be able to find anything at this late date? I am flying to Orlando from Dulles Washington, DC and driving a rental car from there to somewhere. I love to stay at the beach within driving distance of restaurants. Preferably like to have a little kitchen to take care of some meals.

Peace and quiet is what I want so no big hotel will do.

Thanks a lot for your invaluable help.

Twoguncharly, Not sure what you are looking for, "Old Florida" certainly doesnt mean "crummy" and I am at a lost to know any crummy places on the island. As far as the pool goes, you never change the water, you treat the water with chemicals.

There are many types of accomodations on the island, if you are going for only a few days I would recommend:

Tortuga Inn

Queens Gate

Trades Winds

Bridgewalk Resort

Bungalow Beach Resort

Blue Dolphin Inn

Silver Surf Resort

Cedar Cove Resort


Hope you have a good time
