“A GREAT VACATION”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

You can tell this is a great place to stay as soon as you walk onto the property. Before being allowed to check in, Dave insisted on showing the room and making sure it met with my approval. You could imediately see renovations in the room, from new floors to brand new a/c unit that could be set to freeze. During check in Dave clued me in on many great affordable resturants and night spots within walking distance of the inn(my friend is recovering from a broken femur). The beach is only two blocks away and has affordable parking if you don't want to lugg your stuff. Dave tries to do anything to make guest stay more enjoyalbe. All the guest were friendly and had stayed there many times. The Gulf Tides Inn is affordalbe, clean and relaxing. I look forward to returning as soon as I can

We chose this hotel based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed. We stayed in an efficiency room and the size was perfect for the two of us. The room was clean and the kitchen included everything we could possibly need. The pool was great and the beach is within walking distance. Dave is amazing! He gave wonderful restaurant suggestions and chatted with us many times during our stay. We will definitely be back our next time in St Pete!

Had a great time in st Pete. The hotel is dated but super clean and that is what matters. Met such nice people staying at the hotel. Pool is great. Beach is just 2 blocks away and is not so nice due to these huge yellow sandbags in the water. Dave is just the best host.

3rd time back to Gulf Tides and as ever we are never dissapointed. Its the perfect spot to sit back and unwind with friends and family. The owners Dave and Adele cannot do enough for you, nothing is too much trouble. It really is without doubt the jewel in the St Petes crown. Keep up the good work Dave and Adele cant wait to come back soon

We stayed for 2 nights while we were in St. Pete for a wedding. Dave was incredibly friedndly and couldn't do enough for us. Everything was clean and tidy. We especially liked the pool right outside our door! We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to a longer stay next time.

I honestly cant enough about how good this place is and its wonderful host Dave was. Booked Gulf Tides after reading the reviews and was not disappointed at all. Firstly we received the warmest welcome I have ever received by a very knowledgeable and amazingly friendly owner Dave. After giving us some fantastic recommendations showed us to our efficiency room that for a couple is more than adequate. The service here is second to none. I thought i may have had a toll violation on the highway and mentioned it to Dave who promptly called sunpass and dealt with it on my behalf. Throughout our week long stay Dave was an always willing source of information and a true gent, he even booked our next accommodation in anna maria for us!!! Pool was great and the vibe in the place is so friendly and warm. As a navy guy and a well seasoned traveller i can honestly say in all my travels this place reigns supreme. Thoroughly deserves its place at the the top of the tree for st pete and will book again for next year with confidence, so should you!!!!
