“Beach location is everything !!”
Reviewed 27 March 2007

We have just returned from a week at Seaside Inn & Resort and found it most enjoyable. It is not the Ritz; but, we had a Gulf front suite which was clean and comfortable and had a private patio. We felt the price we paid was worth it for the directly on the beach location in itself. The management was most friendly and helpful. They even delivered mail to our door. As for the changing of the towels, they are exchanged daily by means of a wicker basket that is put out front. The room is strictly yours and private unless you ask for assistance which is offered. The beach is also private. The Dolphins and sunsets were super to watch and all in all a relaxing week of sun.

My husband and I booked this place because it was directly located on the beach, which is the only thing the Seaside Inn has going for it. When we arrived, our toilet had been left running all day long. So, I jiggled the handle and walked away. Not so fast...as it turns out, the flushing device was held together with a bunch of paper clips. When we complained to management, they told us to fix it ourselves. Needless to say, we had to pull the toilet apart every time we flushed and management did nothing. As far as calling this place a resort, I would take that with a huge grain of salt. "Resort" indicates that it is a place providing recreation and entertainment especially to vacationers. The Seaside Inn provides nothing of the sort. You are responsible for everything yourself. There is no daily service and you have to bring them your towels each day if you want fresh ones. The Seaside Inn claims to "recycle", however, when asked where to put our recyclables, they just said to throw them in the trash. I think the only reason they promote "recycling" is so that they don't have to wash towels daily. The rooms are very small and we found bugs in the bathroom. Not really worth the $200 plus per night we paid for it. The Seaside Inn is basically a motel on the beach. It is a real shame because if management cared more for its guests and the upkeep of the rooms, it could be a really wonderful place.

I was looking for beachfront accommodations with the ability to cook quick meals, too. This place has average sized rooms with King bed and sleeper sofa, and an efficiency kitchen (fridge, sink, and cooktop). But you can't beat the location on the beach. We had a patio right outside of sliding glass doors with the sand right in front of us. It's a quaint little "motel", but feels more like an inn. The complimentary morning coffee and newpaper on our patio was truly a relaxing time in our day. The kids would sleep in and we would sit out watching the ocean with our cup of joe. Hey, there's nothing fancy here, but for those who want to be on the beach, you can't really beat it, unless you have lots of money to rent a condo. For 2 the cost in October was $125/night. Add $10 per child per night.
