“Go for the beach and isolation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

The place is old and small but so what. How much time is spent in your room anyway? The place has a middle of the key location, fancy beach houses to the left and the right so there is hardly anyone ever on the beach. Quiet, quiet, quiet. Away from the lights and bustle of any city. Resort means something different evrywhere we go, here it means tranquility, beach walks, sharks teeth, calm surf and unbelievable sunsets. Our kinda resort

Room Tip: Gulffront worked for us, limited view from most others but probably all provide some view of the gul...

You are right! We are the place to go if you want to be on the beach...secluded (although you can hop in the car and drive across the bridge about 3 miles and go to all the stores), quiet (your neighbors homes are small mansions on the beach and bay), and don't forget Romantic! ....enjoy some wine on the sunset viewing deck as the sun sets over the Gulf of Mexico!!! A truly special place...come see us! Thank you for your kind words....

Manasota has been one of my favorite beaches I have ever visited. And luckily the Pearl Beach inn is a great hotel with great staff as its the only one on Manasota Key. If you are looking for a relaxing quiet weekend on the best beach in Florida then the Pearl Beach Inn is the place.

And don't forget to go shark teeth hunting, its addicting.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Pearl Beach Inn directly on our Manasota Key Beach! Please hurry back to see us and find more sharks teeth! We even have some beach scoops you can use to look for these fossilized teeth! Best Wishes...

We stayed at the Pearl from 5/12-5/17. It was a totally enjoyable stay. The rooms were clean, well stocked and comfortable. The beach access was easy to navigate, ven for my handicapped husband.
If you are looking for "party central" this might not be the spot for you, but, if you are looking for a good value, a nice secluded beach and the friendliest staff ever, then look no farther!

Room Tip: Rooms 2,3,4 and 5 have the best view of the gulf.

We stayed at the Pearl 05/4-05/13, another fabulous trip. We were so sad to leave. We have been here quite a few times. It is so relaxing and peaceful here. We ran into numerous folks we have met over the past few years. Everyone is just so nice. Can't say enough about this place. Nice new walkway to the rooms, Great idea. I cannot say anything bad about this place. Really nice new management. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Not a bad room at this place. You are going there to go to the beach anyway, not to be in your room

I stayed at the Pearl Beach Inn Resort April 17- 23 2012. It was the most relaxing and satisfying trip ever. The owner Bob is a terrific owner and makes sure your trip is the way you want it. Pam in the office provided anything I needed, and great conversation about the area and adventures. Well's was so great in making things wonderful and assisted me with answers about the resort that made things very easy. I totally recommend this resort if your not looking for the boring hotel stay. This resort is off the beat'n path and if you like your procedures is the best. Right on the water on Manasota Key with enough great restaurants and fun to be had. I personally loved grilling on their great propane grills. Having the kitchen was an extra plus. The room are clean and always fresh towels. Even a washer and dryer free for the guests. I will be back, even though I did find a Florida home. These folks are top notch. Love the time I had. Did I mention the gorgious sun sets?

Room Tip: I stayed in room 6, but all the rooms are great.

We stayed in one of the beachfront rooms and loved every minute of it. The view was spectacular each morning waking up to the sunrise each morning and the smell of the ocean. The staff was friendly and accommadating and ammenities were plentiful. The few things you need to know is that they do not service your room but the towels and the linens are in the laundry room for you to get as you need and you just put your dirty items in the basket. The laundry facilities were free and with a real washer/dryer that work and they are free! No spending $6 to dry your clothes. The hotel supplies beach towels and chairs and the beach is very quiet and private which was nice. They also have a couple of "common" areas that have chairs and tables with a large clean grill for cooking the fish you catch from the ocean. This is a great place to stay and we will be back. The only problem we had was our reservation was messed up but they more than took care of the issue to our satisfaction.
