We stayed in the Sea Front Inn in November 2012 for 4 nights. Punta Gorda is not at its best in November (cool and gloomy skies) and during these 3 days we were nearly alone in the hotel. There was some major construction going on during our stay. We were not offered a different room in the 2nd building to avoid the majority of this. The whole front courtyard of the hotel had been torn apart and there were workers and pickups and construction materials around and it was even hard to walk into the hotel because of the scaffolding etc. I think during the regular season when there is no construction it would be a lovely place to stay. There was a breakfast every morning in their (empty) restaurant, coffee and some kind of bakery item and fruit. Nothing very impressive. At night there were weird sounds in the hotel and it felt kind of like security wasn't the best, although there was a guy who sat as a watchman for much of the night. Our room was nice (Manatee room), mostly clean and a good size, with a balcony and a view of the Bay of Honduras, which was beautiful and the ocean is right across the street. I say mostly clean because it seemed like some work had been done recently in the rooms and there was plaster and dust.
The rooms vary a lot in size so look at the rooms before you commit to one. We would probably stay there again but it was just not a great time to be at that particular hotel due to the mess of construction. I'm surprised they were even open. Also, the people at the front desk changed every day and none of them seemed to know anything about where to go to eat, catch a ferry or rent bikes. We had to ask other people after getting the wrong info from the front desk people every single day.
The location of the hotel is great. You are within about 7 blocks of the ferry, 3 blocks from a coffee shop, bus stop, and stores, and within 6 blocks of restaurants. There is no dinner or lunch service at this hotel, at least not while we were there, despite the restaurant on the 3rd floor.
