Upon arriving, I felt I had just gone back in time. The front desk was under the staircase, antique-ish style furniture, flooring, lighting and more. Our room was small but had everything we needed. The staff was most friendly and accommodating and joined in with the guests. The usual minimal breakfast was included carefully supervised. Now...the location is great for... More

No frills hotel in downtown St Pete. I booked last minute for Memorial weekend getaway and this was the only hotel that had availability in that area. It was also pretty reasonable about 100 bucks. The hotel façade is well kept and the interior had old world charm. Several antique furnishings and trinkets aligned the hallways. They offer free parking... More

This Inn is a cross between a small hotel and a B&B. The owners were delightful and the price amazingly low. The rooms were clean, had a small refrigerator, small flat-screen TV and were clean. If you looking for a new place with large, spacious rooms with big TVs, this is not for you. But it was quaint, quite nice... More

I loved my experience from arrival to departure. Incredible friendly service! I was preparing for an interview next morning and asked if it would be possible to have the iron and board. Without hesitation the front desk keeper brought the items to my room. What I especially liked about the inn that you see they made a great effort to... More

Our stay at this America's Best Inn in St. Pete definitely added to the enjoyment of our trip. The owners were gracious hosts and due to their ability to speak fluent German, many guests were international. We availed ourselves of the continental breakfast and the afternoon wine and snacks - this gave us the chance to socialize with guests from... More

We have stayed here twice. We love this place. Owners are the nicest people. Free happy hour nightly from 5-7 pm. Awesome continental breakfast. Just a couple of blocks off Central Ave. They will be changing names in July 2015 to "The Inn on 3rd Ave." Will still be same great place without owners paying the franchise fee. The owners... More

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
