I travel from the UK to Florida every year and ALWAYS stay at the Pier Hotel. I love it every time! The location simply could not be any more perfect. It is smack dab in the middle of downtown within a very short walking distance to everything you could want...the waterfront, marina, Shops and Sundial, fantastic restaurants, parks, theatre, shopping...

We stayed one night in this comfortable Hotel, situated near to the Pier and within walking distance to the beautiful Marina. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was as big as your appetite needed. The room was large and everything was clean and comfortable. This is a definite return choice of ours.

Had the pleasure of staying 5 nights in March at this lovely property. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The 24 hour coffee bar was always well stocked and well utilized. The veranda provided an area to relax as well as the opportunity to meet and visit with other guests. The hotel is located a very short walk from... More

For the price, location, and the fact that this is a historic – not a chain – hotel; this is a pretty great hotel. It definitely has its flaws but then again it has some really good points. The hotel has an old, vintage look to it. Nothing too spectacular or historic to marvel at (no Biltmore or anything like... More

When an Airbnb in Madeira Beach cancelled on us just one week before our trip from Wisconsin to Florida during the most brutal winter of our lives (learn from our mistake here), we panicked. The prices were by that time out of the roof unless we wanted to stay near the airport. But somehow the Pier Hotel in St. Petersburg... More

We are Tampa residents and were attending at wedding at the Vinoy and needed an affordable place to stay the night. The Pier Hotel was quaint, quiet, affordable, and met our needs. If you are looking for a high-end hotel with tons of ammenities then this is not the place. The hotel was charming and in great walking distance from... More

After a day of looking at condos and houses in lovely downtown St. Pete, it started to rain -- a lot -- and we abandoned plans of driving to Sarasota, where we were scheduled to look at real estate the next day. It was almost 8 at night, and we stumbled upon this attractive looking hotel smack dab in the... More

Nice, old fashioned hotel 2 blocks from downtown and the parks. My husband and I stayed for eight days and the staff were most helpful and friendly. The trolley was great to get around and we took the bus to Pass A Grille twice. I love hotels like this! We plan to go back next year.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel located in downtown St. Pete. It's in a great location close to restaurants and the Salvadore Dali Museum. There is even a movie theater just across the street. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and we really enjoyed the breakfasts. Parking was not a problem as we parked in the dirt... More

This hotel for whatever reason gets its share of favorable reviews. I cannot see how. Let me say that it is not all bad. Its location is right in the heart of downtown St Petersburg. For a $6 fee payable upon check in, you can park in an ample parking lot (unpaved and quite dusty). The free wifi was strong... More
