This building has been around as a hotel since the early 20th century, which is historic by Florida standards. It is now run by a family, not a chain, which gives it a more personal rather than corporate feeling, not something that one experiences all that much nowadays.

An older hotel with smaller rooms, but the feel of European lodgings instead of Florida. The location makes many of St. Petersburg's attractions walkable. Friendly and helpful staff offer advice and suggestions, and conversations with other guests develop naturally. This will be my first choice on my future visits to the city. This hotel will be leaving the Americas Best... More

This is a small, unpretentious hotel in downtown St. Petersburg that feels more like a bed and breakfast. The hotel is old, the rooms are rather small, but the place is very clean and the owners are courteous and accommodating to guests. This is a great place to stay if you want to be downtown near all the wonderful museums,... More

a bit old and run-down, but the staff is darling and more than makes up for the small rooms and rust. It is sort of a boutique Bed and Breakfast. The location is great. We parked our car and didn't move it for our stay, we walked everywhere or took the 50cent trolly. The continental breakfast was fine--but it is... More

Formerly an older hotel with charm of the thirties, close to vibrant downtown water front. Owned by a charming couple who make your stay most pleasant. Happy hour in late afternoon and a continental breakfast to get you started in the morning. Old town charm with modern conveniences of wifi. Will go back again

Even though the rooms may be on the small size - all are adequate and comfortable but most importantly always impeccably clean, neat, and tidy. The hotel's staff and owners are more than helpful and always make every effort to accommodate each guest. The hotel is centrally located and accessible to most St Petersburg's downtown area without any problem. Because... More

Owners will stay the same & only the name is to change to INN ON THIRD & we will definitely return & recommend. So I wouldn't have to drive at night my elderly Aunt & I checked in for one night to attend a party in downtown St Pete. We both agreed it was like we had arrived at Grannys... More
