“Just what you need”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

We stayed here there for two nights for a quick getaway. The staff was nice, the size was adequate and they had the best rates I could find on the island. I was skeptical of being "across the road from the beach". Don't be skeptical. It's very close. Stay here, it's just what you need.

Queens Gate is not a 5 start resort or high end lodging in an way. It's a cute, conveniently located old Florida property thats pretty well maintained and has great staff.

We're in a poolside cottage with a full kitchen. It's old, quirky, reasonably clean. Very nice shower. Has everything you'd need but the room really isnt why you're here in the first place.

The pool area is immaculate, inviting and cute, pool is sparkling clean. Theres a great yard and covered sitting area too. Beach towels are provided for treks across the street.

The beach is right across the street and fantastic restaurants nearby (don't miss The Beach House for dinner). There's a number of little shops and restaurants right around Queens gate and it's not nearly as congested as the main touristy area up north in Anna Maria (Holmes Beach).

Staff here is very friendly, make you feel right at home. Kathy the manager and Tim the clerk have been pleasures to deal with.

Only nit I have is the canned air freshener they opened in the room prior to our arrival; it was very strong and smelled like they were trying to hide bad odors. I threw away the freshener and the air cleared up nicely, room smells perfectly clean (except the trash can, that could use a little attention).

There must be a lot of places in this area like Queens Gate but I'm happy here and you will be too. Price was right, room is OK, grounds are very nice, good staff, great location. Can't go wrong.

We have stayed at Queen's Gate resort the past 7 years. We go every summer and are never disappointed. The service and staff are excellent and they go out of their way to accommodate us. The newer pavilion is nice for gatherings and we love the pool.

Room Tip: Cottages are great if you need a kitchen and extra space.

The room was cute, but not what we needed. There was a fridge, but only one sink for bathroom and efficiency area. It was not a deep sink, too shallow to wash dishes in, so we had to get things at the store that were prepackaged. It became frustrating after a couple of days.

The bathroom was cramped; no bath mat was provided. The pool was very clean, but some of the chairs were dirty. The beach is across the street, and it is really nice. The trolley stop was just past the motel, in a pretty good location.

The AC was cold when on and warm when not, and we could not get a comfortable steady temp setting.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Just returned from spending two nights at Queen's Gate. We reserved the queen efficiency room, and it was fine for our needs. Great location, just across the street from the beach. The pool and gazebo were very nice. We forgot to bring beach towels and were happy to see they were provided in the laundry area, along with beach chairs and umbrellas, should you need them. This place could be even better with a few upgrades to the rooms. The decor is really dated, and our room had a definite moldy smell (which is probably hard to avoid at the beach, but still unpleasant). But overall I would definitely recommend this for a beach getaway!
