We stayed here for one night on our fly-drive trip around Florida, having read about it in the Lonely Planet. It was lovely. Check-in was really personal and friendly. Our room was nice - perhaps small by American standards but that is part of the charm of the historic building. We ate at Isabelle's in the evening (the hotel restaurant) - the service and food were really amazing. The gentleman who served us looked after us impeccably, and we loved the homemade bread and butter pudding! We sat out on the fantastic old style verandah and just watched the world go by. The next morning the lady who runs breakfast got up early to provide us with a light breakfast and coffee before our early morning birdwatching trip to Fort de Soto park - this was much appreciated!
Gulfport itself is a great little place well worth stopping at - we wish we'd had more time to explore the restaurants, cafes and shops, and to wander along the pier / waterfront - it's a nice change to be able to get around on foot rather than by car in the USA. Thoroughly recommended.
