“3rd visit in a Year- Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I live in Tampa and have stayed at Far Horizons 3 times so far. It is the perfect little get-a-way. I always book a direct Gulf-view room, which has enough space and a small but functional kitchen. The hotel has always been spotless, the pool is great and you can't get any closer to the water! The staff if always friendly, and with only 20 units you can get a great amount of privacy. This is not your typical hotel, but really a condo-rental situation. The footprint is very small so you are steps to the pool , beach and ocean front patio from any room. The price/value ratio is tremendous! Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Room 10 has been updated, but any of the direct gulf views are great

The most personal, Homey, Motel. The most Breath-Taking view of the Gulf. Good price for what it offers. Family Friendly. Short walk to Post Office, Gift shops, and the beat breakfast restaurant the Frog Pond. Family pool. The Kitchenette had all my cooking needs. Made my vacation perfect!

Room Tip: Room without beach view are still good rooms, just a walk around the corner and your feet are in san...

Couldn't ask for a more perfect place to stay. We have been going there for two years and are all ready set to go again in 2013. Nice clean rooms, friendly staff. The Motel itself is an older motel that has been kept up perfectly. You would think it was just built! It has a beautiful pool, a very nice breezeway that leads right out to the beach! We eat our breakfast every morning in the breezeway and end up there late in the afternoon for cocktails.. The beach is beautiful and did I tell you? The Far Horizens is directly right on the beach! There are plenty of resturants close by some you can walk to and if you want there is a trolley that you can take anywhere on Gulf Blvd where there are many more resturants and attractions. We have found our go to place for a winter retreat. We have told our friends and now we have more coming down this winter to stay at the Far Horizons....

We stayed for a partial week the first week of April 2012. For the price, this was a very good deal. Clean, nice pool, great beach front and was not crowded. The rooms are independentally owned and then rented out by the manager. Our room and our friends' room were updated and comfortable.

Our room was completely remodeled. Extremely clean. Staff was good. Pool was warm not the cleanest but nice none the less. I had a very enjoyable stay. Had stayed at other hotels in this area and this was the nicest by far!

We stayed for July 4th weekend in 2010. This place a fairly clean, reasonably priced, and our kids loved the pool. We came back for the July 4th week of 2011. This time we got a a room facing the gulf. We really enjoyed our stay. We never had any guests in our room, we cleaned up our room before we checked out, and we were respectful of those around us. We reserved the same room for next year, but a month after we got back home, we recieved a letter saying that due to complaints of having guests during our stay we were not welcome back next year. We are shocked! My husband called thinking that they got the wrong people. He was told that this was an association decision. Noone ever said anything to us while we were there. We would never knowingly break rules or disrespect anyone. I suspect that the owners decided that they wanted the room fro someone else.

TP4103, Owner at Far Horizons Motel, responded to this review, February 18, 2013
I would just like to add that we do not put people on our do not return list unless we have a very strong reason for it. I would just like to say on our behalf that this family had a large amount of family members staying at a property close by . My other guests complained that they took over the pool area, and had about 22 extra people at our hotel. When a large amount of our guests have the same complaint we must take action to ensure everyone has a good time. Our other guests were very uncomfortable, and we had to take action to ensure this did not happen again.
