The Inn was extremely clean, and the staff was wonderful. They were also located right on the water which made the location perfect. Easy to find. The price was right. The rooms were huge. Our corner room on a Saturday night was about $117 total with tax.

After the first time at Great Heron inn, I was looking forward to staying again.
Right on the beach. Owner is very nice, plus the housekeeping go way beyond for the customers.
Close to restaurants. Which we went to JD's the most. Great place.

Looking for a place that we didn't have to get in an elevator to go down to the beach. This is a lovely, clean "original style" motel. We would have preferred a king bed instead of the double/twin in one room and our view of the pool was only from the living room and from our bedroom we could see the laundry room but it was our fault for booking last minute. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful to our visitors that needed a parking pass and extra towels. The beach was steps away and the restaurants in Indian Rocks are great with great prices. Can't wait to come back to Great Heron Inn!!!

Room Tip: Book early so you can get one of the 4 rooms on the end of the motel.

This is how I remember "Old Florida" the charm and casual attitude. The staff makes sure you have anything that you could possibly need. The location is awesome on the beach with a heated pool. Just a few minutes after you arrive you can only imagine that this is your home and the people around the pool or picnic tables are part of your family. And if you don't wish to hang out with your long lost cousins they won't even notice as you come and go as you please. Easy walking to shops and close to causeway. Clean and great value.

Teena and the staff at the Great Heron Inn was Absolutely Awesome. This was our first stay but will not be our last. Everything you want is right at your doorstep. We loved that the beach was right outside the door. The rooms were very clean and up to date. Did not have a motel feel. It felt like you were at a family reunion. At night the folks that stay at the Inn all come out for a beautiful night of scenery and conversation. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the kindness and love that is put into making us feel comfortable. One of the last and best (old style...not a condo) beach inns in Florida. Thank you Teena and staff for making our 26th Anniversary something special.

I have stay at this motel for 1-2 weeks every year for over 15 years. Teena is like a second family to us. I have kept this tradition where as i am not bring my children to stay when my parents take their trip. We have NEVER had a bad stay! The rooms are always clean and fresh. I love the extra pillows and blankets that are always available. It is perfect for any size family and feels like home. One of the few places that gives out extra towels especially for the beach and has lounge chairs and sand toys for the kids.
