This was our second visit, and we loved it even more this time! Having stayed one night last year, we increased it to 3 nights this year, and it still wasn't enough. So relaxing. We had Units 14 and 22 connecting, for 7 of us and there was plenty of space - we were on the beach most of the...

We stayed in Room 21 this past weekend. There were six of us and we fit (a little snug) in the room. Room 21 has a kitchenette/living room, bedroom with a full size and a single bed, and a bathroom. The living room has a pull out couch that easily slept two people. The beds were fairly comfy and everyone...

This was our 6th year of spending a month at the Sunburst Inn. Life is easy, slow and simple there. You are allowed, within reason to treat the Inn as your home for your time there. All the units are different, so look at their website. When you arrive the room is clean and welcoming. For your stay you get...

We stayed here for 5 nights, in room 13 on the patio. The room was nice but rustic , we didn't use the kitchenette, it was dated and needed replacement. However, the location was superb with its own access to the beach , supplying sunloungers and various chairs, a bbq and firepit and of course wonderful sunsets. There is one...

His place is clean, SIMPLE and right on the beach. Think AirBnB on the ocean. We loved it....beaches were quit and clean. There is a great coffee shop across the street and one of the best seafood restaurants in the air within walking distance. Would totally stay here again if your looking for peace and quiet.

Spent 3 nights at this hotel. Pros: Amazing location. Steps from the beach. Provided all you needed to enjoy the beach (toys for the kids, boogie boards, beach towels, umbrella, firepit, chairs). Friendly employees. Cons: Pillows could use an update. Didn't feel as clean as we would have liked. Bathroom floor was dirty. Table was not clean when we arrived....

I am happy that you enjoyed your stay. However, I wish that you would have come to me about the issues you had with the room. I can't address them if I don't know they are there. Unfortunatley, those windows that face the beach don't stay clean as they get water spray and sand blown at them constantly. As far...

Well, at first, the manager and I got off on the wrong foot. I was given a studio room without a view and I said that my reservation was for gulf front. It wasn't until the owner comes back and showed my reservation to me. Well, yes I did reserve a studio. But the manager, on orders from the owner,...

My office rented out 8 of the rooms for the employees. We used the upper deck facing the beach for our Christmas party. The rooms have recently been remodeled and they have a very beachy feel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Families & pets are always welcome! We want you to relax and enjoy your stay with us. Weddings, renewal of vows and memorials on our beach are welcome. We have had more than one happy event here and, in fact, the owners renewed their vows after over 30 years of marriage. Sun Burst Inn is located in Indian Shores, Florida directly on the beautiful beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Our hotel is within easy reach of shops, restaurants and all you need for a wonderful vacation experience with a regular bus service at your door step if you need it. Our inn has eleven units, all with either kitchenettes or full kitchens, so it's your choice depending on what you feel you need. All units in our two story beachfront facility are either directly facing the world famous Gulf beaches, or a few steps from the beach. Enjoy Florida at its best the way it used to be: quaint hotels, friendly owners AND with all the modern conveniences. That's what you'll get when you visit The Sun Burst Inn. Pristine white beaches, splashing Gulf waters, and spectacular sunsets. All just steps out your room. Visit us soon and find out what the "real" and "friendly" Florida is all about! Lounge chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers, beach towels & beach toys all supplied with NO RESORT FEE. The Gulf Beach area provides many fun things to do because we are within easy driving range of attractions like Busch Gardens, Clearwater Aquarium (Home of Winter the Dolphin), The Salvador Dali Museum, Lowry Park Zoo and for shopping there's John's Pass Village and the Ellenton Outlet Center. ... more   less
