“Great Getaway”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We had a great getaway weekend at the WannaB Inn. Kick back and enjoy. There's plenty to do here but we opted to spend most of our time in the Gulf water....just steps from our room.
If you want an alarm clock in your room, stay somewhere else. You're on 'Island time' out here!

In the '80's my family and friends spent every year at weston's until the rooms got nasty and the staff became rude. Never went back until last week. I had driven by a few months ago and was amased to see the improvements. I spoke to the staff and maintanence workers. They were all polite and helpful. I made a three day reservation for a fishing trip.
Arrived on 9/17/13. Easy check-in. Boat ramp simple. And the new docks are super. They have lights and electrical outlets. A fish cleaning table with water is needed and I'm told it is next.
We stayed on the intercoastal side and could see our boat from the room.
Everyone we spoke to was very nice and helpful.
Looking forward to going back with my family and friends.
Weston's WannaB Inn is a super place. If I could afford it I would live there. It has the Gulf on one side, a pool, and the intercoastal on the other side with docks.

We just took our 4th trip to Weston's and will definitely be back again. Since our last visit in 2011, there have been many renovations. We stayed in the Seastar Motel & Villas and absolutely love the view! In addition to a GREAT location right on the gulf, we were also extremely close to the swimming pool. The only drawback was the 2 twin beds in the second bedroom. Not good for 2 couples vacationing together, but great for a family. The staff was extremely friendly and gracious, and we loved everything about our stay! Can't wait to go back next year!!

Room Tip: Definitely choose a room on the gulf - you will not be disappointed with the view!

What a wonderful place to go and relax, located on the Gulf of Mexico and Lemon Bay. Our one bedroom apt. was located directly on the beach and just a few steps from the crystal clear pool. Just across the street was the boat ramp and docks where we kept our boat for our stay.

There have been MANY improvements (they are still working) from the last time we stayed at Weston's several years ago. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful, they just want you to have an enjoyable time and believe me we really did.

We're already planning our next visit. If you want to get away this is the place to go.

Directly on the Gulf, close enough to great bars and restaurants, far enough away from the hustle and bustle of main st tourism. Great staff, amenities, and views. Very nice pools, facility is very well kept and very clean. Will return again and again!

I've been driving my family over 1000 miles from Ohio to vacation on the gulf coast for many years. We have stayed in several different places, from Clearwater down to Sanibel, in our quest to find the perfect "old Florida" spot. Our search ended on August 10th, 2013 when we checked in for a week at Weston's! We were greeted by Bobby, the new property manager, and Jodie working at the front desk. Even though these ladies were both very busy, we received an extremely warm wecome and were made to feel at home instantly. We arrived nearly 2 hours before check in time, but our previously occupied room was already clean and ready, thanks to Westons housekeeping staff. All that was left to do was to fix a strange noise coming from the freezer. I did'nt notice any noise, but the maintenance man did. Bob (one of the friendliest and hardest working people I've ever met) gave a few twists of a screwdriver and all was well, and we still checked in over 1 1/2 hours early! Our room was completely remodeled, absolutely beautiful, and so clean my nurse/germaphobe wife had not one complaint. The gulf view through the full room-width sliding glass doors was AMAZING!! With the gulf to the West, Lemon bay to the East, and Stump Pass State Park to the south, we were surrounded by the best of what the gulf coast offers. And to the North was the only road going onto/off of the island, which dead ends at Stump Pass. No traffic, road noise, crowds, or tourist trap stuff anywhere in sight. And no ambient city light, so star gazing on the beach was breathtaking. Our unit was one of the more expensive ones. The cheaper units were referred to as "rustic". From what I saw, all that means is many updates, but not a complete remodel. Next year we will opt for a more economical unit, as they offer units to suit all budgets. I'll use the extra money to rent one of the their boats to explore Lemon Bay(again). 75$/day, plus fuel. You cant beat that with a stick! Nice rooms, beautiful grounds, wonderfull staff, and the BEST gulf front location I've found in 15 years of searching. As you all can see, I could go on and on and on. Feel free to contact me on Facebook, as I would be happy to answer any questions I can. Sincerely, Robert J. Lax Dover, Ohio

We rented a 2 bedroom condo in the Nautilus Building. We had an oceanfront view. Very nice, clean, spacious and great location. Would love to stay a week next time . They had a 2 day minimum in the condo, but will rent for one night for an additional $50. We were in town for a wedding and didn't get to use any of the pools. Would definitely come back!!

Room Tip: Make sure if you want to be on beachfront to ask for it because they also have bay view rooms.
