“Favorite motel in St. Pete!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2009

This was our second time at the Gulf Tides. It just gets better and better! The one bedroom apartment suits our family perfectly. My son loves to sleep on the sofa bed in the living room so he can watch the tv. I love the 'new' air conditioning units that Dave has installed. They are very quiet and worked wonderfully. I want to sing the praises of Dave the innkeeper! He always has the best advice about restaurants and other businesses. The grounds are always in immaculate condition as our the apartments. We are looking forward to coming back again and again. Did I mention it was near the Twistee Treat??? (soft serve ice cream to die for!!!)

Stayed June 2009, traveled with family

Our family took a "tour of Florida" last week and St. Pete beach was one of our stops. Although we were only able to spend 2 nights here we were delighted. The apartments are very roomy and clean. We didn't mind the short walk to the beach.

After vacationing in St. Pete Beach, over the past few years, this was our first time at the Gulf Tides Inn. Great location, clean rooms, close to the beach and all of our favorite restaurants. Dave was a friendly host, very helpful, and had some great recommendations about the surrounding areas. We're already making plans to return there next year.

I have stayed at Gulf Tides a few times before but this was my first solo trip. Dave and Adele were welcoming and the accommodation was ideal for me. Gulf Tides is a relaxing place to stay if you want to chill and unwind. - I read three books during my holiday. Will certainly be going back - soon I hope.

May 18th 2009.
This was the ideal place to start our trip. Great welcome and great hosts (Dave and Adele). Relaxed atmosphere and very safe location. Good advice on all local amenities, restaurants etc.
The apartment was spacious and very clean with all the required facilities. Wonderful beach, good choice of retaurants, all within walking distance. Recommend the Frog Pond for breakfast. We wouldn't hesitate to go back.

I loved the Gulf Tides Inn: a 1 tidy bed with good sized kitchen, good price, <5 min walk to beach, close to fun restaurants and bars, and best of all a very warm welcome from Dave, the owner. He gives you customised recommendations for restaurants and kind of checks in with you every so often to make sure you're comfortable and all set but it never felt too pushy or intrusive. I didn't have any problems with noise as a previous reviewer mentioned but this may vary based on who's there at a particular time, etc. Plus it wouldn't bother me if people were in the pool as I really prefer the beach anyways (I felt lucky to be able to go to a beach area ranked amongst the best in the US).
Really enjoyed my stay.

If you want a QUIET and RELAXING holiday DO NOT go there. If you are a familie who has kids it is a good place to stay. During our stay we did not have QUIET time either because kids were running around and in the swimming pool until 10:30 p.m. or adults had a pool party going on until 1:30 a.m.
