“Best Place to Stay”
Reviewed March 12, 2008

This was our second trip to St. Pete Beach. Both times we stayed at the Gulf Tides Inn. Fabulous place to stay. The rooms, pool, and service are EXCELLENT. We will be returning again and staying at the Gulf Tides Inn summer 2008. The owners Dave and Adele are great. I really cannot say enough about the Gulf Tides Inn. Very pleased.

Diane and I were very pleased with our stay at Gulf Tides Inn this past December. The location, off Gulf Blvd and across from Blind Pass Road, on 68th St was great. You really don't have to get back into your car once you arrive here. A lot within walking or bicycling distance. The apartment was very nice, clean, bright and spacious. A little heads up for the girls, bring a hair dryer and toiletries. The pool was great, a comfortable 82 degrees. Dave, the owner, was very accessible and helpful with St. Pete Beach info. Thanks Dave.
This is a nice, quite and comfortable accommodation for anyone looking to relax. Make sure to stop in at the Blue Parrot and say hi. Real nice people and good food. Check out the Brass Monkey down in Pass-a-grill for dinner. If I was to return to St. Pete Beach, I'd definitely stay at Gulf Tides Inn.

This charming inn cannot be adequately described . . . you HAVE to visit Dave and Adele (and darling Olivia)! The Intimate size (only 10 apartments!) and personal attention is unbelievable in this day and age. (you'll get to know Dave on a first name basis!) The rooms are nice sized - with two full sized beds in the bedroom and a foldout queen in the parlor. The kitchen is great for fixing meals- and you can eat poolside if you want! You're only 2 blocks off the beach and if you want beachchairs, Dave will loan you some from the office! Dave stocks the apartments with PLENTY of towels, but you might want to tuck in some extra large, super soft beach towels before you come. Or you can stroll down to the "Beaches" shop (2 blocks) and purchase a few. The best of all is the personal advice you get from Dave on restaurants and attractions. He and Adele have visited the ones they recommend so HE KNOWS! Dave stays booked up by repeat clients - so call early and get on the waiting list in case someone cancels. You won't regret it!

Beautiful, quiet, quaint, close to the beach, clean, inexpensive, great hosts - what else do you need? We will be back every year! Almost didn't post this review cause I want to keep this place a secret! But I guess since I found out about it here, it's only right that I share it with you too. Some tips - there is a Pubix supermarket about two miles south of the hotel. For great food that is cheap, go to the Reef which is right next door. The hotel has beach chairs and unbrellas that you can borrow.

  • Liked — this place is close to the beach and very quiet
  • Disliked — if you are looking for a party - go elsewhere

Stayed at the Gulf tides from June 23rd '07 - Initially we booked 2 nights and thought we would start our tour around Florida after that.. but no! Dave (motel owner) had different plans! Daves daily holiday tips and ideas made the stay thoroughly enjoyable and we ended up staying for a week. Almost all the other guests staying there were really friendly and great company indeed. I had read other reviews before booking and previous guests had said the same, but to arrive at a completely different time and meet great people as well was fantatstic. Rooms are very clean, everything works, nice rooms, great pool, lovely location - will definitely go back. Hello to all who were there - i.e. the whole of Newfoundland !!! and some from Wisconsin !

This little resort is perfect is you want to relax and unwind. You can literally park your car and leave it for your time there. The beach is a short block away and there are literally dozens of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The rooms and the grounds are immaculate and the owners are delightful. We made good friends with the other guests there during our visit. I don't think you will find a more charming inn, even at a much higher price.

This motel is run by a young British couple, the efficiencies are beautiful and clean, as is the pool, the owners are friendly, the place is within walking distance of the beach, waterside bars and restaurants and central restaurants, St Petes is also a wonderful place.
