Old Florida Beach Old Florida at its finest

Posted Aug 2, 2016
Pros: The quiet, lovely gardens, and being on the beach.
Cons: It was perfect for Old Florida!
Location: It is located in the middle of Longboat Key. For shopping, St. Armand's is a short drive south. Mote Marine Aquarium is a quick drive away.
We had a lovely get-away at the charming Sandpiper Inn. It was quiet, relaxing, and being steps away from the beach was wonderful. Our rooms were clean and well furnished. Enjoyed having a kitchen that had all the necessary appliances. Publix was 4 miles away and had a great selection of fruits, meats, and wines. We enjoyed having a cookout on the outdoor grill! You can walk across the road to a nice restaurant called The Lazy Lobster. The food was superb. It was nice not having daily maid service because it made us feel more at home. If we needed clean towels, etc., they were easily obtained. Enjoyed the tranquil gardens and the peacefulness of the place. Checking -in was simple;so was checking - out. The owner was welcoming and everything we needed for the beach was available. Loved having our own beach! Will definitely return!

Great Inn, clean, quite short walk to beach

Posted Apr 24, 2016
Pros: See above
Cons: I'm good
Location: See above
Sandpiper is a clean, quite, fully equipped 1 bedroom Inn. They had two umbrellas, beach towels, plastic tub to rinse your feet in when returning from the beach. Lawn chairs and table on the porch. Beach chairs. Perfectly clear water. The kitchen had everything you'd need. Two Tv's. Fans and ac. The furniture was new and comfortable. We rented a bike a short walk from our room, Inexpensive to keep for a long time. We only got in our car once and that's because we had to ship out something heavy at the post office. We walked and biked when we went out. Lovely place. Go there.

This was only last minute overnight trip for my family. Very quaint Inn on the beach, lovely landscaping. Great for those who search relaxing private setting.

Birthday trip 2015

I love this place. It is by far the cleanest place I have ever stayed while traveling. The Sandpiper Inn is always the first place we check, when headed to Longboat Key!

Third time here says something

Posted Jul 28, 2015 on Hotels
Third time I've stayed here over the last 15 years. Great little hole in the wall. Very clean, and Ben is an incredibly nice guy, who seems to be able to do everything necessary to keep our stay pleasant and keep the place tidy. There was another man in the office now and then who came across as a bit grouchy. Maybe the owner, don't know, never introduced himself. Maybe he had a good reason. Other than that, a very friendly and clean place.
