Gulfside Resort
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We went to St. Pete Beach for New Year's from Orlando. We found a great respite at the Gulfside Resort. It was clean, had a great location, fun extras in the shuffle board and putting green and Kathy was great.
The efficiency was just a perfect size for the two of us. The kitchen had everything we needed and then some.
Loved it and will return... not soon enough.

Our stay at the Gulfside Resort recently was a wonderful experience. We happened on the Gulfside by accident and were truly blessed to do so. Kathy and Sue run a wonderful, clean, friendly resort, a true home from home. The decor is bright and fresh and the facilities are superb, they though of everything you would wish for on a self catering holiday. Sitting out by the pretty poolside in the evening and throwing a steak on the BBQ was wonderful. We were so lucky to get a vacancy, but only because of a cancellation. However, my advice is to book early as they have many returning visitors every year.

The location is also just perfect only a stone's throw from the world famous St Pete's Beach perfect for swimming, fishing or going to Jimmy B's for an early evening drink and some live music. Thanks Sue and Kathy for a wonderful stay we will be back !

Room Tip: All the rooms are pool side and quiet.

Great location at the beach. Meticulously clean. A warm, friendly, intimate and attentive family run hotel. Sue, Kathy and Jim are solid managers and fine people, and it is a pleasure spending time here. The rooms are spacious, lots of windows / cross ventilation, CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN, full kitchens that are well stocked with cooking utensils, pans, etc... More of a feel that you are staying at a borrowed home as opposed to a hotel style resort. The brand new air conditioning units are designed that mechanical component is outside on the ground – so there is no noise: you can’t tell by the sound if the unit is on or off. Judging from an older sign, this property was once an apartment building and it is evident by the large size and quality of the rooms, and the openness and uncluttered feel of the outdoor common area. Nice swimming pool, putting green, and first rate Weber grill. Great location in a very quiet area away from the bar-beach-music-area’s intrusive noise that so many other St. Pete Beach visitors have to put up with. I have stayed at several placed around St. Pete Beach, and Gulfside Resort on balance - in my opinion - is far and away the very best place to stay.

My husband and I stayed here for a quick 2 night staycation and loved the place! It was clean, comfortable and convenient to the beach and to dining. The owners were absolutely wonderful, very friendly and accommodating. I know that we will be back and I would encourage anyone looking for a place to stay in St. Pete Beach to book here!

If you are looking for an affordable, well maintained, comfortable place to stay, within walking distance of St. Pete's Beach, I can certainly give you high recommendations on The Gulfside Resort.
The unit we stayed in was a one bedroom unit, located on the ground floor with its own kitchen and literally, steps to the pool. It was clean, smartly decorated and had everything we could ask for. The owner was fantastic, showed us where everything was, offered us a beer after we got there, (we returned the favor later in the week), and help settle us in without any problems or hassles.
The resort also has grills that they allowed us to use, which came in handy.

I can't say enough good things about this place. We will definitely go back for another get away!

Room Tip: We went for the ground floor unit, and it suit us perfectly!

You know when you stay at a big hotel on the beach and you walk around, you see these little "mom and pop" hotels that seem to have been there forever? And you wonder, what are they like? Are they nice? Affordable, cheap, tacky, dirty or not for weekend stays. Well. Let me tell you, Gulfside Resort is affordable, is clean, not tacky, and for weekend stays.
I had a girls weekend there. We stayed two nights in a one bed apartment. #4. You couldn't get a nicer stay for the money. I was blown away by how clean the apartment was. You are a 2 minute walk to the beach. There are plenty places to eat too, all walking distance. We parked the car on Friday and didn't move it all weekend.
The pool is clean and not full of people. We loved our stay, Kathy and her mom were lovely. Don't stay in the big hotels with herds of people. Go stay at Gulfside and have a lovely peaceful beach stay.
