I'm almost nine months late writing this review so my exact memories are fuzzy, but let me just say that Gulf Tides is an amazing value if you are visiting St. Pete Beach. My partner and I visited for a wedding in May 2012 and, while our relatives stayed at the fancy hotels up the street, the only advantage they had was being right on the beach. Their rooms, though twice the price, were mediocre at best. Our rooms were perfectly clean, had kitchenware, a nice, hot shower, and everything we needed.
Dave went above and beyond his duty in helping us get around St. Pete and, embarrassingly, showed up in timely fashion despite being awoken late one night when we looked ourselves out of our room.
If you visit St. Pete Beach and are willing to drive two minutes to the ocean, this is the hotel for you. You will not get better service anywhere else.
