My family and I have been coming for the past three years since Travis and his family bought the hotel. We love it because you are made to feel like you are coming to a friends home instead of a cold hotel. There is a nice pool and great views into the bay from the back. We have a boat...

We stayed at the Dolphin Inn over July 4th weekend. The room was spacious and clean and the owner was very nice and helpful. We woke up in the morning, walked across the beach and watched dolphins swim around in the Gulf. We dooked most meals in the room, which helped save on travel expenses. In the evening we went...

Great place. Well equipped eclectic kitchen, great rooms, nice people and great rates. Like a little mini beach house. If you want matching china and a bathroom the size of a ballroom stay somewhere else and pay triple. But if you want a great friendly, clean, quiet and comfortable place where you can cook your own meals, enjoy a glass...

We absolutely loved the pool and convenience to everything we needed! We could easily walk to the beach, spa, theater and 7/11! The kids loved the pool and the rooms were clean. We love the fact that there is a kitchen to help with food costs! We have stayed here twice. Once we were on the canal side which was...

You have to be a real laid back beach lover to enjoy the Dolphin Inn. It is the ultimate beach motel. It's not all dressed up and fancy, it's for all who like the simple things in life, great hospitality. Though very relaxed ,its clean, and no obnoxious college partiers. It's far away enough from the crowds but close enough...

Poolside #5, one hard mattress one too soft, nowhere to hang wet towels, not enuf drawers to unpack clothing. Otherwise ok, owners present but not in your face, saw more of their cats than them. Travis very friendly. Pool is great.. Would stay here again, but in a larger room.

Our family of 5 stayed at the Dolphin Inn and we were very comfortable and pleased with our stay. The room was very clean. We have stayed at many hotels along the gulf beaches of Florida and for a privately owned small hotel this one is my favorite for location, friendliness of the staff, cleanliness and size of our room....

This was our 4th year coming to the Dolphin Inn and it gets better every year. Travis, Jen and Lynn treat us with EXCELLENT, FRIENDLY and PERSONAL service. You get more personal service staying at a smaller hotel. We plan on coming here for many years to come. It is always a great time at the Dolphin Inn!!!
