This is an old charming,cozy, shabby chic place to stay. Exudes an ambiance of old rustic Florida. Staying over 20 yrs at Coquina. Love it. The staff can not do enough for their guests. They are very welcoming.

Spent 3 nights at the property. People great and friendly. You are right on the Gulf and also have a pool. Only a short drive to St. Armand's Circle and pretty much everything is there. Water everywhere and had a great time. We walked on the beach day and night, it is literally right out the door. The hotel itself... More

I loved the vintage, old Florida vibe of this hotel. It was an added bonus that pets are welcome. The only down side was all of the cigarette smoke around the pool. It was like being whisked back to the 1960's....

Comfortable rooms, nothing fancy. Bathroom could use updating, it was a bit worn. The location is great, right on the beach and close to St. Armand's circle. Only negative was long black hairs on top sheets. I assumed they were from housekeeping and didn't mention to my sister as she would have freaked out!!

Stayed here recently for a getaway weekend. Pleased to see two beds and a separate room with a futon. That really helped with four of us all staying together. Loved having a separate room where the door can be closed on the bedroom. Nice updated floor tile, simple bathroom and a room that overlooked the pool. The sunset cannot be... More

Our 10th family vacation at Coquina. Staff is friendly. Location is right on the beach and the hotel is clean and well maintained. Only problem we encountered was on Saturday, when one hotel guest commandeered one of the two shelters on the beach and had a graduation party for someone who was not a guest. There were at least 20... More

I would like to apologize for your experience on that particular day. I have implemented new policies to ensure that this will not happen again at Coquina and we are now towing vehicles that do not have the necessary parking permit. The weekend you are referencing, we were totally overrun by "guests" of one room and I accept total responsibility... More

First I want to say how incredibly nice everyone was. We brought our dog and there was a extra fee but it was worth it cause it's hard to find pet friendly in that area. Rooms are clean and perfectly suitable. Love how they are right on the beautiful beach.

The facility is older, but well maintained overall. The pool is kept clean and the grounds are lovely. We had a second floor room with a great view of the pool, courtyard and beach. The balcony is very large, and although the timbers are weathered, they were secure. The kitchen was well equipped, all appliances worked. The housekeeping staff was... More
