And yes, Dave is great and so are the rooms! Heated pools and a block from the beach which is beautiful. Very relaxing trip and all of Dave's restaurant recommendations were good. Nice new bathroom was a plus!

We're just back from our first stay at Gulf Tides. It's a very relaxing place, with a nice pool or a short walk to Upham Beach, very clean, great rates, and Dave is always available. He had really good suggestions for local restaurants. We will definitely go back.

The Gulf Tides Inn is an absolute gem of a place in St. Pete Beach. Having never been to St. Pete before all I had to go on were the Trip Advisor reviews....I'm glad I listened. I thought it perhaps such a small place could rank so high, however I took a chance and am thankful for that. There aren't...

Just spent another perfect stay in the sun with Dave and Adele. There's nothing more to add than the previous reviews other than it just gets better and better every year we stay. The location is perfect, the complex is perfect for anyone's needs and Dave is just the ideal host. All the rooms have now been renovated and have...

Super charming place with wonderfully friendly host. Efficiencies are comfortable and clean. Loved the 1960s pink and black tiled bathroom. Dave is there for anything you need: dinner recommendation, beach chairs, a nice chat. Wish we could have stayed longer!

If you're in search of a friendly, clean, comfortable, cheap, welcoming, family owned place to stay close to the beach, THIS is your place! This is a small motel style place with apartment style rooms. We stayed in the efficiency style apartment for the weekend and it was perfect. The room had a small kitchen with anything needed to make...

If you're in search of a small family run property, then this is the place for you. When we arrived we were barely in the gate when Dave greeted us by name and immediately took us to our room, showed us around. A little later he offered to help me bring in my luggage! He made great suggestions for meals,...

The first time I stayed at the Gulf Tides Inn, I was impressed with the condition of the property, the local knowledge displayed by the owner, and the convenience of the location. My second trip proved to me, it wasn't a fluke. Dave is always busy running around the inn taking care of the most minute detals to ensure his...
