Lovely experience at the Peninsula Inn in Gulfport. We had our Honeymoon there and it was even more beautiful than we expected. Lots of exquisite historic charm. Clean, attractive and well decorated. Great customer service and personal attention. The breakfast, bar and dinner area were classy. We're thinking about going back every year on our anniversary. Thank you for preserving... More

We just spent the 4th of July at the Peninsula Inn! It was incredible!! Our room, the Nile Suite, was perfectly appointed. The bed... OMG...incredibly comfortable.

We returned recently from a four night stay at the Historic Peninsula Inn. We were visiting family in Gulfport and found lodging options limited unless we wanted to stay somewhere less convenient for our needs. No modern hotels or motels nearby and we weren't quite sure what to expect. The Inn was a pleasant surprise. It feels more like a... More

We adored the Peninsula Inn and the charming town of Gulfport. Having never been to this quirky town, we were pleasantly surprised on our arrival to find an old Florida style bayfront community. The Inn is very well run with comfortable rooms and a beautiful restaurant. Breakfast on the porch was absolutely lovely every morning. We enjoyed walking around town... More

I really like this place but the rooms need work. The porch, bar, and for general hanging out this is as good as it gets in the area. If the room is a priority though you may not like it. Our room was dated, needed work, and was poorly laid out. I would return after room rehab is done but... More
