My husband and I were greeted by Melissa and she was so personable and professional! Our room was beautifully appointed and we had an original claw foot tub! Sunday breakfast was delicious and we'll spend the night there again and recommend it to friends and family!!! We made our reservations with Nick and he was delightfully charming!!!

We've stayed here for 10 years when seeing Yankees games. It was once a charming, shabby-chic type of place but, since changing hands several times, it has gone downhill. No hot water, just lukewarm, with very low water pressure. Taking a shower here is like being at summer camp. The furnishings are very worn. The paid parking lot is muddy... More

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.
