Third year for a January vacation to Indian Rocks Beach FL and a stay at the Great Heron Inn. We were in room 127 facing the waterway with a huge porch. We could watch the sunrise, boat traffic and even saw dolphins. Teena,was helpful as usual and the rest of the staff attentive and fun. Rooms are large, comfortable and...

Great Heron Inn Thank you!! It was perfect - not fancy, but exactly what we were looking for. Perfect for our needs, perfect location, perfectly helpful staff, perfect local seafood, perfect place to start our New Year. Nothing fancy, but everything we needed – just as described and promised. Everything was a bit dated, but much like going to visit...

I can't think of one negative about this place. The staff were more than accommodating even offering to put a bag of ice in our freezer for when we arrived when we mentioned our flight would be in late. Quick, easy drive from the airport and lots of grocery stores to choose from on the way. We never felt as...

My mom and I recently stayed here for five nights for a family wedding. It was clean and friendly and is in a great location. It is directly on a long stretch of powder white sand and perfect for long beach walks, swimming in the warm gulf, watching the sunset and making sand castles. The staff were very accommodating and...

This hotel was a great find for a recent trip we took to the area. Most of the properties we found in the area (on the beach) were highly priced with lots of additional fees. The Great Heron was VERY reasonable regarding price and there were a lot of extras available at NO CHARGE. Teana was fantastic to work with...

Pool was nice.and you can see the ocean from any room upstairs. The only thing missing is no ice machine but that's okay.ill know...

Heard so many great comments about this place before we even booked it. The hotel itself is old but does the job. The beds are comfy and the location is perfect. A little kidney shaped pool in the center and you can literally walk a couple of feet to the waters of the beach. The hotel staff is very friendly...

This little inn is not brand new, but absolutely spotless. Kitchens have everything you need to cook, even a teakettle, which I appreciated for my morning tea. You are literally right on the beach, which has sand like baby powder. And a great blue heron, Harry, that shows up twice a day for photo ops and a frozen fish. Enjoyed...
