This Gemmis one of the best kept secrets of St. Pete Beach. Great rates, clean and friendly family owned, what more do you need. They have 2 heated pools, a patio bar/grill with the best hamburgers, shuffle board courts and even grills for you use. Most of the rooms have a kitchen, some kitchete, other with full appliances. This is... More

We spent a night here on our way further south. The rooms were clean but small. The bathroom was very small with just enough room to use the facilities. The beds were acceptable. We did not use the kitchenette - but expect it to have been sparsely appointed. Biggest negative on the room though was the smell of disinfectant, which... More

We just returned from a Florida vacation and several weeks at the Bon Aire. We have been staying here for about 20 years and are the second generation to do so.. My parents started coming here in the mid 70's. I can't say enough about the place. Our room was a great size, with a refrigerator and sink and a... More

Wonderful quaint motel with all the amenities for a long weekend getaway. The rooms were comfortable and 'spic & span' clean along with the rest of the hotel grounds. Located right on a the beautiful white sand beach with plenty of chairs and loungers and two pools as well. Family run business who were visible throughout our stay. Sand Bar... More

Where else can you find an old mom and pop motel with a beach tiki bar. What a find. The only problem is the rude waitress. The older waitress got things moving, but if it hadn't been for an older gentleman calling the waitress to take out drink and food order, we would have ever been able to order. The... More

Food was great. Service by the young blonde bartender was awful. We sat right at the bar and she completely ignored us. She waited on at least 4 other customers that showed up after us. One lady she waited on came up and stood next to my husband after we were sitting there for 15 minutes without being acknowledged. Finally,... More

The "Bon" as it's known is one of the best locally owned beach motels. It is very family oriented and is situated on a world class beach. Their outside bar is the best. Although it lacks adequate seating around the bar the place is warm and friendly with a great local flair. Noone around can beat their drinks and the... More

Another wonderful place to stay that I discovered thanks to the Trip Advisor community. I was going to the area for a wedding and wanted to also have a beach vacation (especially after the rough winter I experienced in New York). The Bon Aire was the perfect base for my stay in the area. Everything is kept clean and in... More

Stayed in a full kitchen, 2-bed room for most of a week with my family of four. We were happy with the value of what we paid. Room and pools were clean and well maintained. Though it was sold out, it was still quiet. Being on the beach and having a beachside bar on site was great. Beds and bedding... More
