We love The Peninsula Inn. It is a great place to gather with friends for good food and drinks. Love the friendly staff and good service. Try the hamburger! Lovely veranda and back porch. Locals love to hangout and listen to John the piano player.

I decided to visit my son for his college's parent weekend very last minute and most hotels were booked. I found the historic peninsula inn and spa on trip advisor and called for a room for 4 nights. They only had two nights available but promised to put me first on a list if anyone cancelled. I decided to book... More

We really enjoyed the Inn, very nice and friendly place to visit. The entertainment downstairs was fun and the small restaurant and bar are excellent. We took advantage of a drink by the fire pit outside while listening to the piano players and live entertainment. It is located in an area close to lots of live music and pubs and... More

I LOVED my suite of rooms. Very elegant and spacious. I also had a super delicious meal, with an ample glass of wine, in their restaurant -- with excellent service. A little noisy when there is entertainment (including noisy dining), but you can check out when this is, if you want a quiet meal. Plus, they always end at a... More

This Inn is located in a charming area close to downtown St. Pete. It is an artist community with casual waterfront bars and restaurants as well as other places with live music. We did not know this when we booked the inn, but were pleasantly surprised. However the Inn could use some TLC. It's on the market for sale which... More

Introduced to Peninsula Inn by friends, We had a very good meal which was reasonably priced. Could have chosen almost anything off the menu. European themed menu. Excellent service. Suggest booking table when live entertainment provided on outside terrace.. If I didn't live 4500 miles away I would certainly make this a favourite! Gulfport not mentioned in guide books for...

If you're staying in Gulfport, then consider the location of this inn because you can then walk everywhere. Tuesday Market is a fun event in Gulfport. Inn was obviously retrofitted with "private bathrooms", which makes for some odd room layouts. Our sink was in the bedroom, but had no light or electrical outlet near the sink. The bathroom had the... More

This is a wonderful historic hotel/Inn in Gulfport, Fla. We were staying here for 4 nights for a wedding weekend. Alexandra and her staff were terrific and made us feel so at home. The restaurant is wonderful and the bar was so fun at night. Outside there is a fire pit so on a chilly night in November we sat... More

The Peninsula Inn is centrally located in the art district. Surrounded by colorful homes and great restaurants. Within a few blocks there are a least a dozen restaurants of every type and non are chains. We also enjoyed the yoga studio across the street and St Pete's Beach which was a short drive. We will definitely stay here next year.... More
