Loved this hotel. Right on the bay, restaurants on property, lots of ammenities. Very clean room, great views. Did not travel with dog, but I think they may allow dogs. Staff was helpful, had laundry, pool. Was a little pricey, but very nice experience. Would stay there again.

This could be an amazing paradise in the middle of Florida. Unfortunately, it is not. The check in was horrible - with the attendant arguing about not one, but 3 out of 5 reservations for our group. Caution to all - it doesn't matter what you think you have booked, the club will make changes and then tell you it... More

The Harbor Inn Suites are very nice. The Harbor Inn is dumpy. Check in was horrible. Attendant didn't know what he was doing. Couldn't deliver the class of room we booked. Told us things about the room that just weren't true. We tried two rooms, both were totally unacceptable. Hotels.com then made good on their guarantee and put us in... More

We love this Resort. We've been there once, and have booked a three bedroom condo for March, and can't wait! The resort is spotless, beautifully appointed and private. If you're looking for a quiet get-away, this is the place for you.

Stayed with wife and three children. Rented a 3 bed 3 bath. The condo was great. Huge in size, all amenities you could possibly need. Nice restaurant and dock on property, very nice sunset on bay. You will need bug spray for sure. The complex was a reasonable drive to attractions in area, the local town offers little.
