This was our second stay at the inn and we expect to have many more down the road. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are not fancy, but have that classic feeling like staying at grandmas. We love the quirkyness of Gulfport. There's no other place like it. Great food, interesting shops, nice uncrowded beaches, the historic...

The Historic Peninsula Inn in Gulfport is a time travel adventure back to the 1940s. The hotel is atmospheric, well kept, and evocative of times long past, as is Gulfport itself. The rooms are spacious, the breakfast excellent, the staff charming and helpful. The in house restaurant, Isabelles, has gourmet level dishes at reasonable prices. This is not a Marriott...

Had a lovely stay for a few nights. The Inn, like the city of Gulfport, is a little quirky, and that is part of the charm of both. It's not a Marriott, it feels like your great-Aunt's home, a little creaky in some spots, but lots of nooks to sit & read, and lots of reading materials laying about. Not...

My husband and I traveled to Gulfport for a one night getaway to celebrate our anniversary. The inn was pleasant and comfortable, but our room was noisy. Located on the 3rd floor (Irian Jaya) was fine for us, but we must have been right above where the restaurant staff congregate after hours. Fortunately, the AC noise covered it up. Don't...

Went for Brunch on Sunday. Arrived just as they were seating people. We were the second table to be seated and first to order. It took 45 minuets get our food. Menu says brunch comes with fruit and pastry plate. Had to ask waiter twice before it came. Short rib hash was tasty but lukewarm. Eggs over easy were fine....

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...
