Waterside Inn on the Beach Hotel Review: Families---especially those who can recall the states golden age of travel---like coming here for the quiet, casual atmosphere. The laid-back style also attracts tourists and locals looking to escape the crowds that cram most of Floridas beaches. A choice of accommodations includes efficiencies, cottages and condominium homes. Efficiencies have two queen beds and full kitchens with microwaves, plus private balconies with views of the Gulf of Mexico. The beach cottages feature large, comfortable living spaces, full kitchens with dining nooks and bedrooms with large closets. The Breakers West condos are the best of the bunch with their own private pool and sundeck. A honeymoon cottage with a double Jacuzzi and fireplace is popular for post-wedding and anniversary stays. This is the kind of place where families make their own fun with outdoor barbecue grills, shuffleboard courts and bikes available for rent. The heated swimming pool offers a sense of privacy with its white fence, green foliage and row of palm trees. Small pets are welcome.
