Wow, what a find. Great place, right on the beach. Perfect for a few days away from the madness!!!!! Rooms good and very well equipped, pool great for those who don't like the sea and miles of glorious sandy beach.you can bbq if you want to or there are great places to eat nearby. Once found you will return again.

This was our first time staying here..The rooms were much larger than we expected with a living room, full kitchen and bedroom. The place was very clean and new appliances in the kitchen...The owners (Teena and Dave) were very helpful and the staff was so polite and welcoming. They provide so many amenities at the pool and for the beach...Great...

This property is right on the beach and just south of the main commercial area on Indian Rocks Beach, including Crabby Bill's restaurant (see other review, it only gets 3/5) as well as a number of other restaurant's. The room and property are very clean. The staff is friendly and very attentive. The kitchen is small but pretty well equipped...

Did not like management and how they treated us and our guest. We were rushed out and treated unfairly. They refused to let us pay for parking so we can enjoy the beach for the rest of the day. When asked if there was parking somewhere close the owner said about a mile in a half away. Come to find...

Teena H, Owner at Great Heron Inn, responded to this review

Although we continually strive to meet our guests' needs, due to the small nature of our facility, we are limited in times of high occupancy. We do extend checkout time, as we did, but were unable to offer parking as there was only adequate space for residing and incoming guests. Several free public parking areas with beach access are nearby...

We have stayed here for several years whenever we visit Indian Rocks and we love it. There is a separate bedroom, nice kitchen with everything you need and a big living room with plenty of comfortable seating. Nice pool and large area to sit, sun and enjoy the gulf.

We were looking for a reasonably priced, clean place right on the gulf for our anniversary and the Great Heron fit the bill. This is an older property but don't let that deter you from staying. It is so convenient being steps from the beach and the room is so clean and well appointed. We had a wonderful view of...
