“Not a quiet & relaxing place to stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2009

If you want a QUIET and RELAXING holiday DO NOT go there. If you are a familie who has kids it is a good place to stay. During our stay we did not have QUIET time either because kids were running around and in the swimming pool until 10:30 p.m. or adults had a pool party going on until 1:30 a.m.

Our experience at the Gulf Tides Inn was absolutely perfect and lived up to the reviews on this site 100%! We were thrilled with the accomodations. The rooms were spotless, and smelled fresh and clean when we walked in the room. Dave was the ultimate host and gave us wonderful suggestions for dining, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The units surround a nice inground pool, and are like quaint little cottages. The people are friendly and helpful. We met a lady from Ireland that had been staying there every year for 14 years on holiday. We will definitely be back and will tell all of our friends! Thanks Dave for a wonderful time!

Staying at the Gulf Tides is like having your own holiday home just a block from the beautiful St Pete Beach! I give the highest rates for the things I value most in a hotel: cleanliness, safety and location. Considering the rates, it is a bargain that you would think is too good to be true, but it actually exists. :-)

We have just returned from 10 days at Gulf Tides and I really cannot speak highly enough of the whole experience.
The owners Dave and Adele take great care and pride in making your stay as enjoyable as possible with loads of great advice on where to eat,shop and local places of intrest to visit.
The appartments are spotlessly clean and have everything you need for a perfect beach holiday.
We didnt even hire a car this time and in truth didnt need one with plenty of places to eat and drink nearby after a hard day hanging by the pool or beach !!!!
Will definatly be back

We stayed for 1 week at the end of June and had a great holiday. Like many of the other reviewers, we found the Gulf Tides to be clean, spacious, great value and well located.

Dave and Adele deserve special credit for their helpfulness and hospitality. Small details like the provision of a crib for our son, free wi-fi and generally enquiring about our experience meant a lot.

Also, their commitment to continually improving the accommodation and facilities is a great sign.

We will definitely be back!

This is our 2nd time staying at the Gulf Tides Inn. We just love it - the owners are great - the rooms are very clean and they have a great pool. Close to everything. The beach was a 2-3 min walk - you didn't have to cross any busy streets.

The owners were wonderful - suggested ideas on restaurants, shopping, etc - and always right.

We are definitely coming back next year.

Thanks to Dave and Adele for a great time.

We wanted a romantic getaway and were tempted to book the tradewinds, but saw this place on tripadvisor and am glad! It is a Mom & Pop organization with a great location. The owners are very nice and knowledgeable about the area, all of the food recommendations were right on the money. It is only a 3 min walk to the beach and the area isn't nearly as busy or crowded like it is around the major hotel/resorts. We found the accomodations to be dated yet cozy and comfortable. You have quite a few great establishments and beach bars within walking distance, you could literally park your car and walk everywhere for days on end. Cafe Luna is around the corner and has wonderful food (Recommended by the owners) We will be back!
