We have stayed at the Watergarden Inn at the Bay at least once a year for the last ten years. Our recent four day stay during the St. Pete Grand Prix served to remind us why we love this place so much. From the minute we check in, we feel like we are in a wonderful, welcoming, comfortable home. Bill... More

What a perfect stay in downtown St. Pete! The Watergarden Inn is well-kept and most welcoming with amicable hosts Wilder and Bill, who take pride in their bed and breakfast and it's returning guests. Rooms are well furnished and comfortable. The lush gardens complete with swimming pool are a relaxing spot for morning coffee or sipping wine, both of which... More

I didn't have much time to enjoy this wonderful B & B as I was attending a wedding and was in and out. My room was comfortable, beautiful and very relaxing. The owners were extremely pleasant and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend the Watergarden Inn - it is a beautiful, relaxing place to enjoy while visiting St. Petersburg. I... More

I enjoyed three lovely days in downtown St Pete. The Inn was charming and run by wonderful people. Although not warm enough to swim, it has a lovely pool and gardens. One block from the bay and downtown. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

(They also have a private parking lot next to Inn a true benefit in St. P. The Inn keepers are bright helpful people with a eye for decorating looking to make your stay as... More

Stayed here for a week in February. The owners are very friendly and make you feel at home. A nice, basic continental breakfast is served every morning. The new in-ground pool is nice and relaxing. A couple blocks to the downtown area makes this B & B a great location. Bill and WIlder are great hosts.

My husband and I have stayed in numerous B&B inns through the years and Watergarden Inn at the Bay is by far one of the nicest we have encountered. They are security conscious and keep the doors locked at all times. Once you check in, you are given an access code for entering the premises thereafter. Wilder and Bill are... More

This B&B was all I needed for a perfect vacation stay in downtown St. Petersburg. Perfect location if you want to be downtown - I did plenty of walking the City here, along the coastline. An easy 20-25 driving minutes to the Gulf Beaches, and everyday I got to choose a different Beach. Bill and Wilder were the best hosts... More

This B&B is in a great location and run by wonderful people- exactly what you would want for Innkeepers! The rooms were lovely and the breakfast tasted great. Nice fluffy robes and coffee makers was greatly appreciated.
