We just went to The Peninsula Inn and Spa at the last minute for a well deserved night away. We had an awesome time. Alexandra and her staff are friendly, helpful and just great people. They made us feel at home and made sure we were taken care off. You can tell that Alexandra and her team have a passion for welcoming people into their place. We stayed in the Nile suite and let me tell you that was one of the most comfortable beds I have slept in. We also had the homemade dessert and it was excellent. Everyone in Gulfport is so friendly and pleasant. We will be back soon!

We spent the weekend and celebrated my daughter's wedding at the Peninsula. Alex and the staff were great; the food was great and it was all affordable. They were flexible with us and very accommodating. The location is great, a short drive from Tampa. The Peninsula is very quaint and every room/suite is different, not the traditional commercial hotel. The wedding was a success and I would certainly recommend it to anyone having a significant celebration.

We were lucky to find a nice person that escorted us to this great hotel. The owners were very accommodating. We went for the art walk and found ourselves right in the middle of it and of some great music. Had a great evening. Wonderful place to stay - very comfortable.

This is a wonderful find in a small, but beautiful little town in Florida. The rooms are comfy, clean and well decorated. It has its own restaurant and the food is great. It is a little pricey,, but great for a special occasion celebration.

Really quaint place with a lot of history. I really liked the lay out of our suit and the feel of the place overall was great - except at night the crowd at the bar and patio was quite loud and it was difficult for my 5 year old to fall asleep. Luckily they did not carry on much past 11 PM. Next visit we will ask for a room that does not overlook the patio, problem solved. WiFi signal was spotty as well - but that meant I was less tempted to work during my "vacation". Breakfast and dinner were excellent.

Room Tip: avoid overlooking patio if you prefer to go to bed early

Jim and Alex were very welcoming ! The Inn's excellent location allowed us to enjoy the Gecko fest in style and comfort. We stayed in the Nile Suite situated in the back of the Inn which was nice and quiet We enjoyed the little TV sitting room separate from the bedroom. One of the highlights of our weekend was taking in the festivities from the Inn's veranda under the cooling fans. Great Southern hospitality - cornbread and all. Our stay, the food, drinks and service were all superb !
