Thankfully I trusted Tripadvisor, or we would have driven right past this non-descript building that hides beautiful, lush landscaping that leads to a magnificent, deep white sand beach that is only steps away from any door. We were in an updated, one bedroom apartment (#133) that had a nice size living room, and a well eqipped kitchen that allowed us... More

I have stayed at the Bon Aire motel on St. Pete Beach since I was a little girl. We've gone back here and there throughout the years with my family/kids as well. It's always been a nice motel...that has that "mom and pop" feel. I just stayed there on Monday with my elderly parents. I hadn't been in a few... More

Upon arriving, the group of us we hungry and thirsty. The are was not only fun but there was one bartender that was the best. Her name is Jen. With a great smile and the ability to make great conversation, she was quick and thorough with our food order and drink order. SHE will be the reason to keep coming... More

Stayed in a one bedroom apt which met our expectations. Good location. Walgreens across the street plenty of restaurants within short driving distance. Clean rooms and housekeeping was thorough. Friendly atmosphere and the beach is beautiful.

Stayed one week and enjoyed everything. Clean Family run motel right on the beach. Beautiful landscape. Two smallish pools, shuffleboard, volleyball and lots of chairs lined up to watch the beach & sunsets. Great food and drinks at Sand Bar Bills. Known for their hamburgers. Motel is right across street from Walgreens and near Publix grocery. Day trips to Ft.... More

Cool little place right on the beach. Tiki bar is great and the food was even better. Two pools both clean. Few local spots in walking distance. The room was nice, had a little kitchenette, refrigerator. Italian restaurant across the street was pretty good.

We did not stay here, but we ate lunch at the beach bar one day. They have the best hamburgers! So delicious! My friend had a chili dog which was huge and she said it was yummy too. The frozen drinks were quite large, but tasted ok. The prices aren't too bad. We were sitting outside eating while a storm... More

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
