We just spent our 8th, 3 day weekend at the Tarpon Inn. We've been going off and on since we were highschool kids for Spring Break back in the late 70's. Back then, it was the perfect spot because of a) The porch (the longest in Texas?) b) because of the affordable price and c) it's so close to the beach. It's been hit or miss over the years but things seem to be looking up since the new owners are giving the place some much needed TLC. Fast forward to 2004 - it's still the perfect spot. For all of the reasons above and then some. Small but clean rooms, (they're all different in style and our goal is to sleep in all 28!), the above mentioned porch with it's rocking chairs allways makes leaving hard. The best part - no phones and no TV! (I do bring my iPod for my bike rides - you can pick up a great, like new beach cruiser for rent right across the steet at Mike's, 13 bux for 24 hours!). The staff is small but super friendly and there when and if you need them. If you're looking for a place to really chill, unwind and truly relax then do yourself a favor and do what we do - go back in time - go back to the Tarpon Inn. It's worth every penny of the 65 bux a night!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- With 200' long porches to relax on since 1886, the longest porches in Texas stretches and relaxes along with you. The salt air and breezes are gently encouraged by old-fashioned ceiling fans. The sweet creaking of roomy rocking chairs blends with the pages of a novel being turned. Where each room is decorated in period antiques and no two rooms are alike and where there are no televisions nor telephones. If our place sounds like your kind of place, then please consider this an invitation to make yourself at home. We're waiting to treat you as part of our Tarpon Inn family and encourage you to wonder if it's possible to stay forever,or at least a couple more days. ... more less
