We have been going to the Bon Aire for years and hope to for many more. All rooms are steps away from the beach and the pools. Sand Bar Bill's has great food and drinks. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are always clean and kept up. Yes the feel is retro/local. If you are looking for granite... More

We stayed here only one night in July. I thought the place was quite nice with that retro feel that everyone has talked about. I loved the fact that it was right on the beach and the sandbar was right there. We used to always vacation in Treasure Island where my aunt and uncle lived, but they've torn down paradise... More

I loved this place! It has a great retro vibe, is clean and right on the beach! The prices are reasonable and the staff is friendly and helpful. I stayed in an updated room with two queen beds, a refrigerator, two stove burners and a microwave. There was a nice sized flat screen tv and a small kitchen like table... More

Our family with two small children booked this hotel and asked for a non-smoking room. We were told that all of the rooms are non-smoking which we found out to be a lie. When we arrived, we checked into our room right on the main street. The room smelled like an ashtray. Our next door neighbors said that the people... More

First of all let me say I'm sentimental about this motel. My mother used to come here as a child with my grandparents. It's also the last place our whole family went on a family vacation before my grandmother passed away. The property is a typical 1950 style two-story motel on primetime beachfront property. It is family owned and very... More

Constantly breathing in second hand smoke from other guests sitting outside their room, window units for AC, free wi-fi that barely works (or not at all) are just a few of the experiences that made this a poor place to stay.

We haven't stayed there yet but plan to in October when we role through the area. Lots of good reviews here...It is a smaller hotel with that 50s vibe. We just love the little quaint beach bar/sitting area. Not the biggest, fanciest, newest, most or least expensive....but a solid option. Servers are very friendly and owners are hanging around making... More

The Bon Aire is my favorite spot on St. Pete Beach! All of the rooms at this resort are non-smoking, and we stayed in a very clean efficiency suite, which had two queen beds, a bath with tub/shower, spacious closet & dresser, huhe television and a full kitchen. We went to the Publix only about a block away, stocked up... More

After searching for a place for my extended family to stay on a gulf beach, and based on a referral from a friend of my wife's, we chose the Bon Aire resort for a 3-night stay. Overall, it was a great value for an ocean front resort! The location is great - right on St. Pete Beach - and the... More

We got this place at the last minute so I guess I should feel lucky. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean. Parking was tight at times, but not impossible. Very centrally located and right on the beach for some beautiful sunsets.
