Island Inn
Ranked #31 of 48 Hotels in Treasure Island
Reviewed May 31, 2011

While the hotel doesn't look much from the road, I rented from an owner and had a fantastic room. Was given the a cold shoulder at first from property management - perhaps because I had rented from the owner. Oh well. Got a good deal - $765 tax incl for 9 nights. Not bad in my mind considering, as all the rooms here offer, the balcony is looking over the beach and the Gulf - you can't get any closer. Pros: Overall a good experience, as we enjoyed the beautiful beach, pool, tiki bar next to the pool as well as the kitchen in the room. The balcony was perfect! The very busy areas of the beach are both north and south, so you can walk to see all the activities but it isn't busy in front of the Inn at all. The Inn is quite quiet... except for our last night and overall weekends are busier. Cons: No security that we were aware of - on last night there was a fuss next door that had us awake all night and concerned. Parking can be a bit of a pain as some days you have to park in a lot across the street. There is a small public parking area next to building and many people park there and then proceed to use the pool and facilities which I was not impressed with. Security was my issue and after experiencing the last night I would stay in a gated resort next time but that is just how I like to travel - overall this is still a lovely place.

Room Tip: 50/50 Recommend for inexpensive getaway!

We only live about an hour away but have stayed here several times for long weekends. We have not had any problems in any of the rooms we have gotten. The rooms are spacious and include a full sized fridge, sink, double burner and coffee maker. It is not a fancy hotel and the rooms are not the most modern but if you are looking to stay somewhere quiet with a great view of the gulf at a reasonable price this place should do the trick. There is not too much in walking distance but there is a grocery store and restaurants within a few miles.

Island Inn is a great vacation spot that is not as hard on your pocketbook as some newer hotels. It offers clean spacious rooms, overlooking the beautiful beach and white sand. What more can you want?
Will be going again!!!

We just came back from our trip to Treasure Island Florida, staying at the Island Inn. We had a Gulf Front room (this is a must!) and had the most beautiful view of the Gulf. This hotel is a 2 star rating and there are no frills. If you can overlook the single ply toilet paper and the very loud ai rconditioner, the beach right out front and water more than makes up for it. Our room had a king size bed with a full sized fridge, 2 burners, microwave, dishes, coffee makers. We bought groceries and ate out on the balcony each morning enjoying the weather and view. We will definately be back. It was the perfect vacation spot.

Hotel - From the outside, we didn't expect much. But when we arrived to our room, we were extremely surprised to find our room included much more than a bathroom, bed and TV. We had a full kitchen, desk and couch, and seating within the kitchen area!! Even though it was only the two of us, this room would be great for a small family of four. The view of the beach is AMAZING! And the view of the sunset is breath taking. We sat on the oversized balcony and watched the sunset. Just beautiful. The hotel staff was friendly. The coffee in the hotel lobby is great! Better than expected! Two thumbs up!

Location - Great location! We were unfamiliar but with this area but there is so much to do within 15 minutes of this hotel. Easy access to Publix supermarket, restaurants (our favorites: Latitudes; and Woody's Waterfront) and boating tours.

Beach - There is so much beach space in front of this hotel. The sand feels so good underneath your feet. Be sure to visit Brian for a chaise lounge or a comfy cabana!! The pelican watching was so much fun! :)

my husband and I stayed at the island inn for the 2nd time, and loved every minute of it. We requested the same room as the first time and it was just as we remembered. Rooms are very clean, staff is all very nice and helpful, and Ricks tiki bar is great! We will be back soon...this is our favorite vacation spot!
