My wife an I travel annually to Florida from the UK, we have stayed many times on the west coast. We decided to return to the sunburst inn after staying there many times in the past. To our disappointment the old familiar customer service has gone. The current proprietor wasn’t present when we arrived and we didn’t see anyone day two. The room we were allocated was grim rather than shabby cheque, we had to clean the fridge before we dare put any food in. I felt so disappointed that I rang our elusive proprietor and asked if we could move rooms, the answer was no but we could leave but loose all of our 450 dollar fee paid via booking.com. She even told me there were no other rooms available, three days in Vacancy sign still shines brightly on the road side sign outside our rather poor standard motel room. If we hadn’t stayed here in the past and loved the place and the warm proprietor,we would have left and made a note to ourselves never ever to come back to this place ever again. However I feels like the poor review is down to people who really have no concept of customer care or value. The worst customer response and experience in recent years.

We chose this spot due to their dog friendly nature and also the gulf beach access. We also liked having the kitchenette. We brought our own K-cup machine with us - coffee snobs - but there is a coffee pot in the room. We didn't do a lot of cooking but having the microwave for reheating leftovers was great and Mrs. Angry liked being able to use the toaster to heat her delicious gluten free waffles! Pro-tip - the ice maker in the freezers are not hooked up. Stop on the way in and grab a bag of ice - it will make having some adult beverages on the back deck much more fun.

The staff there is great. I didn't get there names but the young lady working in the front office was super nice and was able to help us with a very late check-in and helped with extra beach umbrellas to keep the sun off us. Drop by the front office to get an umbrella - just don't leave them out on the beach where someone could take them.

We loved being able to get up and take our coffee down to the beach each day. The beach is super accesible and they have all kinds of chairs to use. The sunsets are simply amazing. Each night people were gathering out on the beach to take it all in.

Room right on the beach! Lounge chairs and umbrellas available as well as kid's toys. Room was great! Coffee pot, blender, comfy beds. Parking lot a little small but still ok! The best sunsets ever!! And wifi reaches to the beach! Very affordable and pet friendly.

Rooms were very clean and nice Laura the manager made check in very simple and easy. Came in late and parking is very limited only enough spaces for 1 car per room. When there was no parking at 10:30 at night upon returning from dinner I contacted Laura and she drove down and found out 1 guest had invited extra ppl and handled the situation very professionally,prompt and polite . Being a native and local to the other side of the bay it was very relaxing to get away for the evening. Great little dive bar across the street as well. All in all great experience! I will be saving this place as my future little go to for night away. Thanks for the great experience!
