    I had a lovely gulf view room in Kimball. The hotel has a number of buildings which include cottages and sits directly on the beach. The view was wonderful, great amenities, the bed was perfect and I slept like a baby, plus I liked the pillows so much that I wrote down the info on the label for a future purchase. The staff was wonderful. The maintenance people were impressive - my shower did not work properly and I mentioned it to the cleaning lady. In under two hours, parts were replaced and they even put a new motor in the exhaust fan. I have stayed in 5 star resorts and have never seen this kind of response time.

    Superb

    Location of the hotel. Its unique style, almost a time warp on 10 acres with a wide beach frontage, charming rooms and a great restaurant .

    The bath and handbasin were blocked by sand left by previous guests. Footboards of the beds were exactly the right height and the space around the beds tight enough to seriously bruise us as every time we walked by for the first day.

    We had a wonderful stay at Island Inn, albeit short as we were touring Florida. Our room was lovely, spacious, clean and with great views. It had it's own kitchen/dining area, which would be useful for families not wanting to eat out every night. The new Traditions Restaurant, on site, was excellent. We had a delicious meal there, served by a really nice guy called Jason, who does magic tricks with credit cards. He makes them disappear - shame he can't do the same for the cost of our over all holiday. Many thanks Island Inn, we've had a lovely time - thoroughly enjoyed looking through the old photo albums of the place too.

    The staff was very accomodating. It was quiet. Good breakfast everyday. Very clean, updated baths, etc. Very friendly. A nice experience. We extended our stay one day and may have stayed longer if they had something available.

    Very good

    The hotel was next to beach, we had a big and clean room with a kitchen corner and several restaurants could be reached by car within a few minutes.

    The breakfast could have been better. They had coffee, orange juice, joghurt, cornflakes and muffins, but we were missing some toast or bagels.

    Superb

    I mentioned that my husband was having a birthday during our stay and we were delighted to find a chilled bottle of champagne and 2 flutes in our room! We also loved the room.

    Unfortunately the bed was way too hard for me.

    Superb

    I loved the slightly rustic feel. The location is awesome, the staff is friendly, and the room is super spacious.

    The pool was definitely not kid friendly. The breakfast was disappointing.

    The location

    The rooms are a little tired and there was no choice of beds - we had two doubles not the one king size we wanted. The restaurant was ok but not as good as it thinks it is.

    Superb

    Appreciated beach front with no charge for parking. Appreciated the new furnishings in the very old motel-like building.

    Parking area very bumpy.

    We were there to attend a wedding. The reception food in your dining room was excellent.

    Our room had a musty smell & the carpet was badly stained. Bathroom walls & tub need updating.
