“Great Beach Holiday”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

This was my 2nd visit to the Inn within the last 2 years. Last time, I stayed in a unit by the pool which is across the street. That unit was nice and comfortable, but if you're going to spend the time and effort, you should definitely try to stay beachfront. This time, we stayed in the 2br unit which was awesome. And it didn't hurt that the weather over the Christmas break was superb. The unit itself is nicely decorated and equipped and was clean - I have no complaints. And the same Manager was there from my last visit, and he was again very helpful and accomodating. I love this place and would highly recommend. I can't wait for my 3rd visit next Christmas.

Room Tip: Ask for beachfront and you will get b-e-a-c-h-f-r-o-n-t.

Second trip to the inn in a year. We had an amazing time again. This was about our 13th time to the inn. We took 4 extra people with us and they also love it. Nothing can compare to the ability to walk out your front door to the ocean. My sister rented the apartment with the private pool and is talking about going back too. We are already planning another trip in April and again in October and will only stay at the inn. There are some issues with cleanliness, but I can ignore them when I do not spend much time inside.

Room Tip: Stay in the beachfront rooms on the top. I have stayed in all four of them, and I prefer number one...

We had a wonderful stay at Anna Maria Island Inn in July. We've been coming to the island for almost 20 years and every year we stay somewhere new so imagine our surprise when we were there only to get an idea of where else to stay on the island and realized you can't beat the location, the view or the accommodating staff. We will definantly be coming back!

Anna Maria Island Inn has become one of our favorite vacation destinations! The view of the gulf is fantastic, our room was within feet from the ocean. It was very accomadating, clean, and comfortable. The staff treated us with up most care and respect. We always hate to go home. ***** Five stars Anna Maria Island Inn!!!!!

35 family members stayed and joined us for our beach wedding and vacation. We could not have been more satisfied. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. We enjoyed walking out the back door and stepping directly onto the beach! It was a prime location for our wedding. The furniture, bedding, mattresses and appliances were all new and very well maintained. We was very excited to have an outside shower for our six children to rinse off the sand. The whole entire group appreciated that there was no daily maid service to disturb us every morning, however you can add maid service if that benefits your needs. The staff was very available for our friends that arrived after hours and for any other needs we may have had. There was no hidden fees or surprises, I was charged what I was told and nothing more! We are looking to stay here many more times.....

The AMI Inn is a throwback to the Good Old Days. It's holidays as they used to be. But I like it. Very much. If you go with a bucket and spade mentality you will have a great time. It is perfect for B & S's with the kids. A near perfect beach. Endless fishing. All you need in the shops nearby.
What's there not to like?
Well, it's not glamorous. It's homely.
The rooms are clean and functional. It works with no frills.
Yes, it could do with a lot of updating but maybe that's part of it's charm.
Please don't go if scrappy shower curtains are your last straw in the bathing stakes.
But do go if you want to bump into lots of nice American families fleeing Michigan on Spring Break. A huge part of their business is repeat. Which says it all really.

No, minimalist tones here. But the cooker works. The Fridge is massive with ice. It's not that cheap in my view, but, you are slap bang in the middle of whatever action it is that you seek. If you are a first-time to AM Island I would recommend you have a car, most definitely. There IS a very good trolley bus that's free, but you can wait and wait. But it does mean if you have teenagers they are not held back by your plans for the evening.

The owner, Court, is on hand if you need anything. So just ask.

It's not for the Gucci-clad brigade but if you have young kids who want to enjoy all that AM Island has to offer then GO. We loved it. My Boy wants to move there! Yes, It's THAT great.
