We just had the pleasure of staying at Watergardwn Inn and had such a lovely time! Bill & Wilder are the perfect hosts! They were so quick to reply to our emails, very accommodating & even made us a lovely cappuccino for breakfast. The breakfast was more than enough with lots of great selections. We also really appreciated the Keurig... More

My husband and I recently stayed for a night while in St. Pete. The owners are very friendly and will help you find the perfect place for dinner or lunch. The inn is conveniently located a very short walk from many restaurants and shops. Breakfast was very enjoyable. The room was quiet and very clean. We will definitely come back... More

The Watergarden Inn at the Bay is a perfect Florida getaway. You couldn't find a better location for getting around to everything St. Petersburg has to offer. If you want to go to the beach, it's just a short drive or bus ride (if you prefer) to St. Pete's beaches or Fort Desoto. The owners (Wilde & Bill) were friendly,... More

I ended up at the Watergarden coincidentally as I had not made reservations. Another B&B which was sold out recommended I try it. I took their word. It was clearly my lucky day. The owners Bill and Wilde quickly made every possible effort to accommodate me as soon as they took my call. The Hibiscus room was not only beautiful,... More

The owner's were incredibly welcoming both at check-in, during breakfast, and at checkout. The B&B was very clean and everything we needed was there ready for us. Would easily recommend this to family and friends. The location is absolutely fantastic too, right near the water front restaurants.

My husband and I love St. Pete as a getaway from the bland, character-less SW FL city we live in. We've been searching for a place that we can count on to be clean, comfortable, quiet, with a good location, and reasonably priced (that's not asking for too much, is it?). If those are the things you look for, look... More

We loved the Wintergarden Inn. We had a great stay, Wilder and Bill were just like visiting old friends. Now we consider them new friends. We intended to stay just one evening, being in the area for a wedding. After the first night we were supposed to move on to the hotel where the reception was scheduled after the wedding... More

The Watergarden Inn is simply the wonderful result of Wilder and Bill's efforts and admirable use of their brains. Wonderful room, quiet environment, everything thought to be easy, welcoming and pleasant. No doubt this is the best choice of a place to stay for anyone visiting the Tampa Bay area. Booked for two nights and stayed seven. Not much more... More

My husband and I stayed here with some friends for the weekend. We had such a lovely time. The location is very central and we were able to walk to great restaurants. We loved the pool that they had in the back. It felt like you were in your own little oasis. You would never have thought you were in... More

This was our third stay at the Watergarden Inn. It all started with a surprise overnight stay in St. Petersburg and due to our time being so wonderful it's a yearly oasis for Jason and I. Wilder + Bill are fabulous hosts and the location could not be better! We love downtown! The weekend farmers market is within walking distance... More
