We've been coming to Gulf Strand for years twice each year and just love it. Betty is the most pleasant person to deal with. Our reservations & check in's have always run smoothly. She usually hears from us a couple times during our visit for one reason or another and always takes care of us with a smile. Unit 201...

Returned to Unit 201 (Gulf Front) for 6 nights. We have stayed at the Gulf Strand for over 10 years and would not even think about staying anywhere else in St. Pete Beach area. This unit is well maintained by the owners. New kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Both bathrooms have been totally updated and are very...

I stayed in 202. Very clean, nicely remodeled and comfortable. I didn't want for anything. If I stayed again, I would get a higher unit and on the other side of the building. My gulf front unit faced the gulf but was on the side of the public parking lot and crossover to the beach. No privacy on balcony and...

Room was nice size, had all of kitchen amenities , nice to have 2 bathrooms, full kitchen , dishwasher and washer and dryer. The only complaint would be the bed in 307, king size is great , but we felt like we slept on a pile of bricks all 3 nights , way too firm. Would go back again. We...

This resort is a great family getaway. It is quiet and right on the beach. Plus it has a full kitchen, so if you want to eat in you can. The grounds and pool are very well kept. I would stay here every year, if possible.

The property is just kind of old and run down. Our room had the balcony overlooking the Pinellas county beach access parking lot which provided enough noise by itself but add to that the lights and noise from Gulf Blvd and it made for a most unpleasant experience. Other guests were rude (teenagers throwing waffle fries from the 5th floor...
