We consistently find the Great Heron Inn to provide inexpensive lodging in a perfect location. We enjoy hanging out on the deck or beach and being able to walk to restaurants at our leisure.

Wow, what a find. Great place, right on the beach. Perfect for a few days away from the madness!!!!! Rooms good and very well equipped, pool great for those who don't like the sea and miles of glorious sandy beach.you can bbq if you want to or there are great places to eat nearby. Once found you will return again.

This property is right on the beach and just south of the main commercial area on Indian Rocks Beach, including Crabby Bill's restaurant (see other review, it only gets 3/5) as well as a number of other restaurant's. The room and property are very clean. The staff is friendly and very attentive. The kitchen is small but pretty well equipped...
