We had a reservation for the last two weeks of March. Because of the pandemic we only stayed for one week and then headed back to Michigan. We were refunded for the week we did not stay there. The owners Cathy and Jim were more than kind and understanding. This is a family owned hotel and not a chain-we have stayed here for many years and look forward to staying there next spring-please disregard negative reviews as it cannot possibly be this hotel

Never in my life have I had such a negative experience with a business. As we all know, we are in the throes of an unprecedented pandemic where normal rules do not apply. The Federal, state, and local governments are advising us cancel any non-essential travel and stay at home. As the pandemic was unfolding we reached out to Gulfside Resorts 28 days before our scheduled arrival to request to cancel our upcoming trip and apply credit to next year's spring break. Whereas companies like Airbnb and VRBO and various airlines have demonstrated great flexibility in forgoing the normal rules and allowing people to cancel given the extenuating circumstances, the Gulfside Resorts refused to provide the same flexibility. In fact, they argued with us asking questions like "Why can't you just drive?" and making statements like "It's not that bad here." They insisted on charging us the full amount despite our cancellation. As a customer, I am appalled and will never stay with them again. As a public health professional with expertise in emergency preparedness, I am disturbed at their total lack of regard for government recommendations and refusal to play their part in facilitating people's need to socially distance during these trying times. All Gulfside Resorts cares about is money and has no true regard for their customers nor the need to come together as a society in an unprecedented pandemic. Shame on them.

Dear Sir, Sounds like you have us mixed up with another hotel. We are on St Pete Beach and have refunded all vacationers deposits who have decided to cancel. My guess is you had a reservation with another hotel, with a similar name, in Indian Rocks Beach. I am sorry you are having issues with this other other hotel. Will you please remove this negative review right away before it causes any further damages to our already struggling business. We are a small family owned business and we have worked very hard over the past 30 + years to maintain a positive online image. Thank you in advance. Kind Regards, James Teichert

We stayed at this location for 5 nights, the location was excellent, close to the Beach and all restaurants. The accomdations were pristine and the pool was in excellent shape, very well maintained. There was lots of shade available if you needed, also lots of sun beds and chairs. A Bbq was available onsite. The rooms were in excellent shape, with everything you needed. Kathy was an excellent host! Would most definitely stay there again and recommend it to others Ellenita Kendall

Gulfside is awesome, I’ve visited St Pete Beach 3 times in the last 3 years and I’ve always stayed here! The suites are nicely decorated, well equipped and spotlessly clean, and the pool is amazing. It’s also close to the beach and there are plenty of good restaurants nearby (although the suites all have good-sized kitchens if you would rather cook food yourself!). Kathy (the owner of Gulfside) is great, she’s incredibly helpful and kind and really goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome! I would highly recommend staying here and hopefully I’ll be back again in the future!

Quiet, well maintained privately owned small resort two blocks from the beach. Owned and operated by a wonderful women by the name of Kathy Teichert. She works tirelessly to keep this beautiful, quaint facility clean and in working order. The rooms are equipped with full kitchens so you buy and make your own food, drink etc. Plenty of grocery stores nearby also walking distance to several excellent restaurants. This place feels more homelike than hotel. More suitable for an adult traveller than for famlies.
