Its a shame but it is closed down. Please take this off the list. It is going to be a parking lot. They are building like crazy there so good bye to the small motels. Its going to be a very expensive place to stay but Clearwater beach is beautiful a very nice place to visit.

My family and I returned to the Gulf Beach Inn for the 2nd time this year. We absolutely love this little place. We stayed in a larger king suite this time that included a kitchenette with a small stove. Plenty of room for the entire family. Close to everything. We didn't drive the entire stay.

Last minute trip with my husband. Clean room, Air conditioner worked great, sheets were clean, mattress was comfy, towels were fresh, Pool was packed with kids but after dinner time noise level calmed down. Overall stay was great for the price.

Amazing what 6 months makes! Since late last year, the Gulf Beach Inn is pleasantly under new management. The new staff members are very personable, extremely helpful, responsive (via email and onsite) and more professional than ever. For first-timers, you have to realize this isn't the Hyatt Regency. It's not low class... it's just a typical, small beach town hotel,...

The staff was great! We joked around & had fun, even though she admitted she was a little stressed about getting ready for the upcoming spring breakers! While a little dated, the room was clean & warm (it was in the 40s). They allowed us to check in a few hours early. We will definitely stay there again. Nice accommodations...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and towels new. The rates are reasonable. The only thing I would fix is the pool needs to be heated. The pool was very clean but to cold to use.

“Not all rooms have refrigerators. Just ask when booking. Rooms near the pool may be slightly less quiet during normal hours. However, the staff goes a great job with shutting down the pool at 10pm. Lots of options in room location: Pool area (up and downstairs), and what I would call first floor "courtyard" rooms which are not by the pool.”
