“Penthouse in Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

My wife and I stayed in the Penthouse for a week in early Feb. It was very clean and spacious. Sitting on the coach, you have a great view of the Gulf. We saw dolphins just off the shore twice. We were joined by friends for part of our stay -- they rented the other two rooms on the 2nd floor. There's a small hallway that connects all 3 rooms that we could open, so that everyone had access to the kitchen, living room, and dining room. There are two large balconies that over the Gulf -- a great place to hang out between trips to the pool and dips in the Gulf. Lot's of good food within walking distance. Finally, the staff were extremely helpful.

Room Tip: The penthouse is great, especially if you have friends staying in the other two 2nd floor rooms.

Spent week in Jan, 2013 at this resort. Room is very nice with good amenities. Porch area is nice, with large umbrella and chairs. View of gulf is great, with easy access to beach. Very warm weather was perfect. Only drawback is if weather is very windy with blowing sand.

this small and charming beachfront hotel is our (my wife and i) new tropical home away from not so tropical home. this was our second consecutive year of many years to come. we rent the beach front studio which is clean,roomy,modern and amenitized for a comfortable breath of clean fresh sea air. the fact that when you step out of your sliding glass door onto the deck you are literaly a few short steps to a beautiful beach. stress free, at last. we feel so at home here. the entire staff is friendly and very helpful.
the anna maria island area is truly old florida. no big high rises or chainy eateries. you will be quite happy you made the reservation.
thank you seaside,

Anna Maria Island quickly became our favorite place in the world when we were married there in 2007. 35 of us converged upon the absolutely beautiful Tortuga Inn Beach Resort and everyone fell in love with the place. It was an easy decision to return to the place where we said "I do" and when we saw that the Seaside Beach Resort was added to this family of properties, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to stay right on the Gulf! Seaside Beach Resort did not disappoint. The studio room was perfectly designed for an extended stay and the kitchen was put to good use - the patio overlooking the gulf was the perfect place to enjoy a home cooked breakfast while watching the dolphins and even better for enjoying the beautiful sunsets. The staff was wonderful and consistently demonstrated their committment to my vacation! Thank You Anna Maria Island Resort for an anniversary that felt like a honeymoon! See you again next year!

Room Tip: This resort is B & B in size so there isnt a bad room. However, the ground floor allows for dire...

Location! Location! Location!
This place has it all. Private deck with table, umbrella and chairs.
Walk out beach. Clean big rooms.
The sunsets were perfect! I would go again in a heart beat.
Lot's of places close by to drive to and eat.
Big fridge, so breakfast was always out on the deck, watching the dolphins in the ocean.
Easy access to the other islands to visit.
easy access to and from the airport.
I am looking forward to our next trip... hopefully soon.

Absolutely wonderful. Loved the room, the patio, the spectacular beach right off the patio. Staff was wonderful. Clean towels every day. I can't say enough about this place. I will say that we loved it so much that we are thinking of moving down to the island in August. This trip was supposed to be taken 2 yrs ago but then got sick so it was postponed. It was so worth waiting for. We were on the ground floor where rooms were a little bit bigger, full refrigerator, burners. Trolley right outside the front door. Beautiful sunsets. Like I said, it was the best!

Went to Anna Maria Island for a wedding in October 2012. My wife & I had never been there before and found this Seaside Inn on the internet and decided to try it out. We loved it. Room was clean, Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about places to go on the island. We stayed on the ground floor where the rooms are perfect size for 2...they can accomodate 4 with a pull out sofa in the room, but that would be tight quarters. It is centrally located on the island and with the free bus service only a short ride to all island attractions.

I'd stay there again if going back to the island and recommend it as a place to stay.
