“A very great improvement.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

If you haven't stayed at Weston's in a few years you might want to try it again. Many years ago My family and many friends used to stay here every year when my kids were young. We stopped going because it went down hill. After seeing the improvements and the new staff we decided to try it again. Everything and everyone is great. This is a place with something for everyone. The beach, a pool, and new docks and boat slips on the intercoastal side. There is no place like it in this area. I'll be back in September and next year.
I don't know who bought this place but I'm glad they did. I've always wanted to go back.

My wife, son and I stayed at WannaB Inn for a week. The accommodations were excellent - clean well-designed interiors with everything we needed. The staff was friendly and responsive to any request. The access to beach and bay from the property made for great wildlife watching, fishing and swimming - not to mention the adjacent Stump Pass State Park at your fingertips. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit and plan to come again!

Been coming to this place for over 20 yrs. and just have to say what an awesome job on the renovation !!! Everyone we encountered on staff was very friendly & helpful. If you want a real Florida beach experience, this is a great place to stay. Palm trees & sunshine ! A laid back atmosphere where you can take long walks on the beach and enjoy beautiful sunsets.
Lots to do close by as well. Can't wait to return for another visit.

Just a quick 2 day stay but everything is just as good and in some cases even better. Fantastic location and friendly staff. This is a no frills facility but it is clean quiet and has a great location right on the excellent beach and right next to the beautiful Stump Pass park.

We finished our trip to Florida by staying at Wannabe from May 5 to the 9 th. Right from the start we were welcomed by the great and friendly ladies at the registration office.We had a one bedroom unit right on the gulf side ground floor just fantastic.It was very clean and quite comfortable(unit 126).Having been to Englewood several times over the years we witnessed the renovations of the old complex by the new owners.They did a fantastic job, the name suits it very well because you "Wannabe" here again and again.Valerie,it was great meeting you and we hope to see you and your great staff next year(booked a month this time)

My brothers had stayed here last year and convinced my wife and I to join them this year. They stayed in a two bedroom next to us. We stayed in Sand Dollar 124 1 bedroom facing the Gulf and sunsets. Arrived after 6 PM and found our key and package of information where told to look. The room was clean and had fresh linens and towels. Everything to make it a little home away from home including a full size refrigerator, coffee maker, stove, micro and toaster. Enjoyed 4 nights. Pool was perfect. Dolphins swimming by every day. Sunsets were fabulous. The walk to Stump Pass along the deserted early morning beach was a daily ritual. Will be back.

A super place.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms facing the gulf were what we came for and enjoyed the view from the table inside...

We have been going here for several years, back prior to the new owners and the renovations. The location has always been fantastic and this management team has really fine tuned the operation. The buildings and the property are clean, the staff is very helpful and friendly. They could have followed us home and we would have not minded a bit.

We stayed in the Nautilus building on this visit and the rooms were very nice, the view was spectacular. I guess we're a little spoiled now. The WannaB is great place to stay if you want to relax and get away. No big crowds, and nothing right in your face. This is not the big city beach. It's quiet and about as laid back as it gets. This is where people say hello when they walk by. Their beach with the State Park next door makes for great walks and collecting shells and shark's teeth. We took our boat and used their new docks and had a great time fishing in the area.

We will definitely be returning, can't think of a better place to relax and escape the hustle and bustle.
