“BEAUTIFUL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2012

I worked on the renovation of this Inn, and have stayed here after the historical renovation was complete. I could not get over how beautiful they had made this place, and how comfortable the rooms were. This place is a must stay if you are in this area, and want a relaxing room in a beautiful, historical inn !!!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautiful, quaint, with their own characteristics. Any room you choose will be...

We had the most enjoyable stay at the Inn last week. The staff was great and the food outstanding. New Flat screen tv in the bedroom and I felt like I was in the lap of luxury. I would recommend this place to anyone. Try the Scallops and definitely the cornbread.

Room Tip: Katmandu has a King bed but the Queen sleigh beds are huge and very comfortable too.

Was there for only 1 night and fell in love with the owners and the surroundings. Had so much fun in this little town just prior to the husle and bustle of the 4th of July. It's a great place to check out for a couple of nights, and is centrally located. Everyone was so nice to us.

Can't wait to go back!

We booked a room for the night of 4th of July. We were upgraded upon checkin. Owners made us feel totally welcome and special. Our suite was cozy. We had dinner at Isabelle's, their restaurant in the Governor's room. Very good price/value. Garlic mashed potatoes were a disappointment. Service was excellent. Sorry we just missed happy hour. Jazz music in the courtyard added to the experience. Lunch at Pia Trattoria was also a delight. We walked to wonderful fireworks that evening. Gulfport is a unique old Florida experience with nary a Starbucks in sight. We live in north Pinellas County and found this overnight getaway from our pristine suburbs to be a cultural, small town, satisfying event. Consider spending your next holiday getaway in this unique location with walking distance to Boca Ciega bay.

This is a fabulous oasis in an eclectic community. If you love a laid back non-uptight atmosphere, this place is for you. Non-smoking inside and very laid back outside. Come as you are and ready not to judge others nor will they judge you. Fabulous staff.
Beware: if you are UPTIGHT this place is not for you.

Needed a place to stay a couple days in advance of a cruise out of tampa. Really not a spa, but if you want to settle in at a place and not have to travel for great food, this does the trick. We just wanted a place to relax and unwind before a cruise and this was perfect. Inside and outside dining both provided for great atmosphere and a well prepared menu. Although the breakfast were closer to continental breakfast, there were several great breakfast places a short walk away as was the beach with a boardwalk pier.
