“A perfect get-away that provides a space where it takes little effort to exist!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2009

We purposefully choose to stay at the Inn on the Beach whenever we go to the beach, for several meaningful reasons. In this small resort, the court yard provides a relaxed space where we often meet and share a short visit with people from another state or country. The Innkeeper is so friendly and helpful yet allows the right amount of space to do our own thing. Though we often bring our own food and grill, the location is perfect for an easy stroll to the local restaurants on Pass-a-grlle. And the beach! It is that perfect beach for shelling, building sand castles and swimming. Just thinking of our monthly beach trips allows us to relax!

Inn on the Beach in Pass A Grille Florida is such a quaint, quiet, lovely spot if you are looking for a true get a way in paradise. No need to go to the Caribbean. St Pete Beach is wonderful, easy to walk, warm water, and the most amazing sunsets we have ever seen. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was tiny tiny but we overlooked that as we had a beautiful balcony overlooking the ocean, a full kitchenette area, and beach chairs, umbrellas and towels available for use. The innkeepers were anxious to please and friendly. You can walk everywhere in Pass A Grill since it's only about a mile long. Highly recommend a sunset cruise and dinner at the Hurricane Restaurant. This has to be Florida's best kept secret and we can't wait to go back and stay at the Inn and relax in a simply beautiful atmosphere.

Down for a wedding. Quiet, small, free parking and very nice rooms. Walk to everything. Staff were great. Weekend continental breakfast and always someone out in courtyard to talk with. Beach just across the street. Sea Critters has excellent food.

We stayed here in early October of last year. The weather was fantastic until the last day but that was okay. We stayed in The Pelican room, which was smallish but fine for what we needed . Our daughter , her husband and our two grandsons stayed next to us in The Sandpiper .. It was a good size and they liked it very much. The place was super clean. I would recommend bringing a broom or small vac as it got real sandy in our rooms, even though we rinsed off. We ate breakfast in the courtyard and met some very interesting people from all over the world. The breakfast was good & it was quick walk to the beach. We have stayed in other places through the years but we like the coziness and non-commercial feel of this place. All in all it was great trip!

  • Liked — Location, cleanliness, quaint
  • Disliked — Didn't have a pool.

We were looking for a last-minute family getaway to the west coast of Florida for the new year. Since we spend a great deal of time outside while on vacation, we don't have much use for high-end resorts that focus on pampering and sitting still. But we know that the quality of beach accommodations can vary widely, especially when dealing with the more casual properties that we prefer. That's why the Inn's website intrigued us - the rooms seemed to be up-to-date, well-decorated and comfortable with a good offering of amenities, all for the price we would normally see for 'no-frills' accommodations.

I'm pleased to say that the Inn exceeded all of our expectations and gave us the perfect balance of relaxation and accessibility to Pass-A-Grille. We were in easy walking distance of the historic district, and the road we had to cross for beach access was certainly not a major highway or even a highly traveled city road.

Our room - the Orchid - had two beds so it was perfect for our family of three. We loved the decor and were impressed by the tile work, cabinetry and fixtures. The kitchen area was well-done. with like-new dishes and newer appliances. Definitely heads-and-shoulders above what we usually encounter when staying at the beach. This is definitely more of a B&B or inn than a typical beach hotel.

We peeked into a few other rooms and found the decor to be just as creative and inviting, though I believe most of the other rooms only sleep two. Some of the rooms have sitting areas as well.

On New Year's Eve we enjoyed live music from one of the guests playing in the courtyard, and every time we walked through the courtyard we would see at least one guest outside reading, grilling, enjoying coffee or just soaking up the sun. Very friendly crowd.

The on-site staff was very helpful, from the time we made the initial inquiry call until our check-out.

We will definitely be back - though we might make this a destination for a couples-only weekend since space would be tight if we tried to fit all three of us in any other room.

We had a long weekend in the Sunflower room. We loved the decor - ceramic tiles and bright oil paintings were complimented by the other colors and spaciousness. we loved walking right across the street to the beach, with the beach chairs that they provide in-hand. The residential area of Pass-a-Grille is laidback and relaxing - we simply enjoyed the beach and the short walk to the 8th/9th avenue restaurants and shops, including the beachside grill and an ice-cream shop. we also enjoyed the short (15 min.) drive to Fort deSoto County park's north beach for a day. That beach has nice shaded areas in addition to open beach and swimmable waters.

Both of the inn-keepers, Sheila and Linda, were very friendly and helpful with all of our questions (where to snorkel, other beaches to go to, restaurants, etc.). the other guests were also friendly. The drawback of the Sunflower is that you can hear noise from the room above and outside in the courtyard, although that might be solved by running the AC for white noise.

we would definitely go back, and we hope to!

My wife and I just got back from a great weekend at the Inn on the Beach at Pass-a-grille. We stayed in the White Ibis room for two nights. Everything in the room was wonderful with a great balcony view of the beach. Sheila, the innkeeper, was helpful with restaurants and activities. Beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas were available daily. Coffee was ready each morning and continental breakfast was fairly standard fare. I would definitely recommend this inn to friends and stay again myself.

  • Liked — Beach view, roomy, Sheila, weather
