Stayed here a couple days for the first time. We would go back. Rooms are clean, front office and help is very friendly. Pool was oh so warm; it was GREAT! Right on the beach and had a great deck to sit and sun on. Also no problem parking as with some other places.

Beach is literally outside the back door. 4th time in 3 years in the area and this location was closest to the water. Lots of beach for walking. Plenty of chairs. Friendly guests and staff. Very accomodating, though not bothersome. Great sunsets. No hairdryers in room but one to borrow. Husband liked lazyboy. Husband would have liked TV in bedroom. Would like to have had a full-length mirror in the room. Pool area had plenty of seats. Kitchen had all imaginable utensils, etc. Liked the location because it was a little less spring-break crowd and more family crowd. More condos/hotels and less commercialization. Enjoyed Conch Republic (2 for 1 happy hour and good food) and Kenny's Korner for bfast. JD's (Indian Rocks) had good wings, but less impressive breakfast. Best meal grouper ceaser salad at Woody's in St. Pete beach.

We have been staying at Far Horizons for the past three years, at least once sometimes twice a year. The location is wonderful, staff is very friendly, the room has usually be very clean, and the price can't be beat! Yes, the beds are hard, as mentioned in previous reviews, but the beautiful sunsets make up for that! This time, however, the room was not as clean as usual, towels were stained, and the placemats on the table were gross. We also had bed bugs visit us during the night, lots, in both beds. As it was 3:00 a.m. there wasn't much we could do until the office opened at 8:00. We were given a full refund (we were suppose to be staying for the weekend and this was only Friday) but we were disappointed in that they did not offer much of an apology or offer some enticment to possibly keep our business. Not sure we will be back which is sad after going to the same motel for several years.

We stayed at The Far Horizons over a weekend in May. It was fantastic. Everything looked like it had just been finished updating with all new tiles floors throughout the building, etc. It's a small place, but right on the beach and PERFECT for a quiet weekend. It has a large pool, which is rare for a place on the beach. Right on the patio is tiki huts to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. We stayed in room #20 and it was perfect. The place also had free wifi so I could check my email while I was away. It even had a recliner to relax in! I will definitely be going back next year.

This is a SSL property and is just a joy to stay at! We requested a gulf side room and were accomodated just fine. When we tried to sleep on the beds they were very uncomfortable but when we requested another gulf side room we got an even better surprise by staying on the 1st floor. It is literally only steps to the sandy beach. Oh, and the pool! It is awesome! The property website doesn't mention this, but it is salt-water. Way better than chlorine. We have stayed at properties that were 3 times the money and this was the best yet. We will return, in fact I have inquired about purchasing a unit if anyone would ever give one up. You will not experience better maid service anywhere on the beach. They keep your room clean and neat and supply you with whatever you request, pronto. So please remember to tip them! Check out Dockside Dave's while you are there, the grouper fritters are to die for, there are coupons in the lobby. Oh yeah, and free WI-FI! I have posted pictures or our room and the view. Room 21 is upstairs and needs updating, room 7 is AWESOME. So is Karen!
