Nice comfortable Hotel Suite with great bathroom facilities. Separate lounge area that was nice to sit in although we would have preferred the TV to be here as opposed to the Bedroom - however, I guess most people watch TV in bed. Old fashioned yet very comfortable high bed and a place full of character. The only place I felt...

As an older couple, we need a hotel that provides eat-in dining and walk-to restaurants, WiFi for communication, fun places to shop, comfortable rooms, excellent and attentive staff, opportunity to meet people on site, and easy parking for vehicles, and access to great tourist sites. The Inn met our criteria.

Well, I have friends in Gulfport and needed a healing place after my mom's death. I booked 2 nights on Hotels.com; while I was there, I was able to book another 2 nights as it showed availability on-site and did not on the website. The rooms are quaint and wonderfully appointed. I stayed in 4 rooms as there were no...

This hotel, once a military hospital, is the perfect location for visiting Gulfport, Florida.It's on the main street, walking distance to the very few blocks in this town, almost surrounded by St. Petersburg, on Boca Ciega Bay. The building is historic and has its charm, breakfast is okay but nothing special, and the rooms, although well-maintained, are quite small. By...
