Just had the best time at this place. We truly relaxed and enjoyed the beach and the facility.

We were exploring the area and stumbled across this quaint little inn. The owner gave us a last minute rate on the room and we loved it so much we asked if we could stay another night at the same rate and they agreed. The owners are really wonderful and friendly. They live on-site and are accessible for questions etc...

We found the room to be very clean and it was nice to have a kitchen area, a private patio area, and direct access to a beautiful beach. There was a very comfortable king sized bed. Each room had a TV. There are also common areas on the grounds and grills for outdoor cooking. There are laundry facilities for your use. Easy parking.

There is shopping and several restaurants in walking distance.

We intend to visit again in the future.

LOVED the views from this beach! The rooms were perfectly sized & had all the amenities one could ever want - for any length stay. We were there for 4 nights & had everything we needed. The owners were very accommodating and helpful as well. A great strip mall across the street as well and a 5-15 min drive to a number of other beaches. This place was just overall amazing. Laidback, relaxing & beautiful.

Room Tip: The higher the room number, the closer to the beach

Checked in to the Sandpiper Inn and it is representative of Old Florida. Very clean and neat. An excellent place to just get away and relax. Our room (200) had an ocean view but most of them didn't. Definitely would stay there again.

Room Tip: Room 200 and 201 have Gulf views.

Sandpiper Inn worked perfect for us, especially since we were traveling with our two Westies. The place is very small, but worked fine for us. They have a beautiful beach and are within walking distance of several restaurants. The pool is very small, and in August, it was more like a hot tub. I only got in it once. It is not a resort, but it is clean and well cared for. I probably would not recommend this place for children, mainly because of the pool. I would definitely come back and stay. We liked the small old Florida feel of the place and the manager was very nice and friendly.
