The kitchenette will take care of your vacation cooking needs, and is equipped with all necessary cooking utensils as well as a full complement of dishes, glassware, and flatware.

I'm not 100% OCD but I will say I have some standards. I want to be fully open about my experience with you.
We arrived (never been to this part of Florida before) and the town seemed to be a "Spring Break" feel. I booked this room because of the pictures and it lead me to believe it was beautiful. The place it set up to be very "motel 8" style.
We were able to check in early which was nice. When we got to the room I was not impressed. The pictures did it a favor. It looked like a junky room that someone tried to slap makeup on to improve. The carpet needs to be ripped out. It was damp and you can see how dirty it actually is. Carpet at the beach just isn't a good idea.
I pulled back the sheets and checked for bugs (because you have to know what your crawling into) and there was a black dot... I have my boyfriend be the one to check it out... then I saw the black dot move!!! He squished it - and confirmed it was only a spider. But we had bug guts on our sheets now. I continued to check the bed and we had a blood stain on the fitted sheet. I was grossed out but the boyfriend said we will just sleep on the top cover. So the 3 nights we slept there we had no blanket to cover us.
Don't go #2 in the toilet because it will clog. We tried to plung it but they only provided a cheap target brand that didn't work. We had a pee only toilet and we had to share only to flush once because the toilet bowl would fill and take 30-40 to go down. The day we left we heard the toilet finally unclogging.
It just didn't feel like a clean room.
With this being said... it had some positives to it.
You're there for the beach - location was nice and the patio / view wasn't bad. We were able to walk beach front to a bar called Caddys that had live music and bin fires on the beach. That was fun. We drove to Fort De Soto Beach which was beautiful and historical. We also drove to Clearwater to play there.
The room grew on me as the trip continued. And I got over the bug and the random blood stain. I was there for the beach and sun. And I got that. You're paying $89 a night for a reason. Don't expect anything amazing. It was fine for a weekend away.
PS: They hide the extra bath towels under the sink.
This unit was exactly as described. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect week. The room is just like what you see. It has all the things you need from utensils, pots/pans, mini fridge, coffee pot, toaster, microwave to a smart TV. We brought our roku but wouldn't have needed it anyway since we could have logged into our Netflix account on the TV. The view is magnificent and the pool is just the right size with the same view. Tiki bar is the added bonus with food and drinks right at the pool. The bed was springy (but I like soft beds) and the curtains blocked the early morning sunrises when we chose to sleep in late. Only suggestion would be a couple bigger beach towels (or bring your own) and firmer pillows (also, or bring your own). The bus stop and liquor store are only a few steps away and publix is half a mile north. Free beach rides company is he way to get around though as they're based only on tips (so cheaper than uber). Never needed a car. One tiny suggestion which may be outside of the condo unit owners realm anyway) is offer the unit above 207 (so 307?) some felt stickers to place on the bottoms of their chairs/furniture because all we heard was what sounded like nails on a chalkboard all the time with each move of a chair/table. But that had nothing to do with this unit's owner responsibility. We will be back!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Island Inn. The room was perfect for our 4 night stay. We booked through iTrip and they made everything easy for checking in and out.
We loved the Mexican food at VIP which is a mile North of Island Inn. We also loved eating at The Middle Ground. Jeffrey was our waiter and he and the food were fantastic!
We had a very nice stay at 207 Island Inn. The condo was clean and had a fabulous view of the gulf. Sunsets were amazing! We would definitely recommend and hope to return again.
