The Gulf Tides Inn is an absolute gem of a place in St. Pete Beach. Having never been to St. Pete before all I had to go on were the Trip Advisor reviews....I'm glad I listened. I thought it perhaps such a small place could rank so high, however I took a chance and am thankful for that. There aren't many units so book early but they are spacious, extremely clean, and modern and up-to-date. The proprietor, Dave, is the real deal...whether it is advice where to eat (he batted 1000 with us) or where to go he can hook you up. He is an absolute delight and is genuinely interested in not only your well-being and comfort but that you have an enjoyable time at his establishment and in St. Pete. I cannot recommend it highly enough....you won't be sorry.
