Our stay was amazing. The owner is a great guy and is very knowledgeable. The rooms are great as well as the rate. Rooms are always clean and great. A block walk to the beach can't be beat. We have stayed here 3 times and every time is great. Guests are always friendly. No brainer that this is the place...

The only reason I don't want to rate this place excellent is that I don't want a lot of people to start going here and I not get reservations! Just perfect. Laid back. Awesome pool. An easy block walk from the beach. A kitchenette with everything you need including a real stove, refrigerator and microwave. Clean and quiet. The owners...

I've just returned from another wonderful stay at the Gulf Tides Inn and it just keeps getting better. This was my eighth time staying at the inn over the past four years. All the amenities I first found endearing are still there. Anytime I make a reservation or just call for area advice, Dave makes me feel like a friend....

If you like small (10 units), exceptionally clean, great pool and a friendly innkeeper, look no further than the Gulf Tides. I've stayed here several times over the years and it just gets better and better. The units have been remodeled and the AC is exceptionally quiet and works great. Just a few blocks from the beach and just a...

This place is awesome! It's walking distance to the beach and many restaurants. The pool is so well kept. The rooms are very comfortable, clean, and have everything you need. Dave, the owner, is so helpful and nice. I cannot wait to go back!

Really nice accommodation. Comfortable with everything one needs and a great swimming pool. Very good position, quiet and convenient short 5 minutes walk to St Pete's beach, a good variety of restaurants, and bus to St Petersburg city. And a very reasonable price.

Another great year at Gulf Tides. We came last year and loved it so much we came again this year. Dave, the owner is awesome, always giving recommendations on places to eat, places to explore and visit. It's like coming home to see family. We love that it's not some big hotel/motel. We love that it's smaller. Plenty of places...
