“Wonderful Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

We visited Anna Maria Island for our 51st wedding anniversary, and was so glad we found the Seaside Inn & Resort. We stayed in the studio apartment and was very comfortable and the Inn has all the amenities you will need. Wonderful staff and the location is excellent. You are steps away from the Trolley pickup, which runs every 20 minutes, that will take you from one end of the island to the other. You don't have to take you car anywhere. Great resturants nearby if you don't want to cook. We really enjoyed just sitting on our deck and watching the porpoise play in the beautiful Gulf water, not to mention the incredible sunsets. Seaside Inn and Resort is as wonderful as advertised and so much more. Already planning another visit in the fall.

Room Tip: We stayed in #6, which is a studio. All the rooms are nice.

My wife and I enjoyed our week at the Seaside Inn and Florida coast. At first the studio seemed small but the efficient lay out, supurb service and location quickly made us very comfortable. I would highly recommend this well run resort and look forward to a return visit.

We chose the penthouse suite, 2nd story (of only 2 stories) for our week's stay on the island. It has a separate bedroom from the living area, large dining area and all equipped full size kitchen. It is right on the beach (Gulf side) and the heated pool overlooks the ocean as well. Sunsets are indescribably good! Free island trolley within steps of entrance. Managers keep this establishment VERY clean and quiet. My only complaint would be the road noise as the building sits tight on a curve. We had our windows open so perhaps if you had them shut with a/c running it would not be an issue. It wouldn't stop me from returning to this lovely place.

Room Tip: I only saw the penthouse suite which we were in. I know it is the largest here.

We love Anna Maria !!! The Sea Side Resort goes out of there way to make your visit a wonderful experience The staff is very helpful and they also think of all the extra touches Like beach towels, beach chairs, lounge chairs, grills if you feel like cooking which I don't because they have so many Great restaurants on the island .The downstairs studio rooms are tastefully decorated and have plenty of room for a couple to relax and enjoy themselves ,your own patio outside your room with wicker furniture and table to watch the glorious sunsets night after night .This inn is truly a magical place that will keep you coming back year after year Give this inn a try you will not be disappointed.

We loved Anna Maria Island and Seaside was super cute. Anna Maria has dozens and dozens of cottages and inns right on the beach, although Seaside may be the closest of them all -- there isn't even a dune separating it from the beach. I could live here. Peaceful, relaxing, picturesque, yet lots to do and see.

We got a dismissive welcome, but the room was super clean (given all the sand people must track in--I don't know how they got it that clean), cute, and had lots of extras to cook and play on the beach with. Don't stop in to say hello before 3 or even ask if the room is ready (no matter how nicely) because the woman may act as if you've you've shown up a week ahead. The owner very kindly changed our reservation without penalty. I LOVE Anna Maria and Seaside. I never go back to the same spot twice, but I'm already planning vacation to go back. I didn't see a single Starbucks, Holiday Inn, or Marriott. Instead it's a bunch of boutiques, tiki bars, restaurants, and local attractions. It feels a world away.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong. They're all great.

Me and my husband had our honeymoon at Sea Side last week and it was an unforgettable experience. Sea Side is incredible. We loved the service, they were so helpful in getting us to enjoy the island and explore everything that Anna Maria has to offer. The views from the gulf view rooms are amazing! The sunsets are breathtaking! We even saw a dolphin on our way out. This place is [magical]! It was so sad checking out. I will definitely come back here in the future. I recommend Sea Side to everyone that needs a dreamy, out of this world vacation.

Room Tip: SeaGull! Room #3! All rooms seem great!
