I stayed here for an overnight business trip. My mom joined me. It's not your typical hotel, lots of antique furniture, very cozy. Stephanie was great and helpful. She gave us the names of several restaurants, directions and whether to park or drive. They have a happy hour where you get free wine or free beer, they have water available... More

We spent a couple of days in St Petersburg, and just love this place. Clean rooms and great staff. Excellent location. Will stay here again. Beer & wine in the evening was a very nice touch. The breakfast was ok

The hotel is pretty easy to find (on the 3rd Avenue!) with good parking possibilities. The area seems a bit odd at the beginning but it's very centrally located. Everything is close enough to just walk around. The room and the beds were a bit small but it was clean (the bathroom has been renovated not so long ago). For... More

Staff was beyond nice, great location to downtown (within walking distance), and fair price. You get what you pay for though. Hotel is old and rooms are a bit small. Breakfast is very limited. Perfect for a place to sleep, but glad we only stayed one night.

After battling I-4 down to St. Pete I was greeted at the desk with a cold Yuengling. How does it get any better? Nice family operation. The rooms are old and outdated, but nice and clean. Very nice public room up front, with a free cold beer or wine in the evening with some snacks and a nice quick breakfast... More

Our second visit - charming,1920's decor (I can see Scott and Zelda Ftzgerald staying here) scrupulously clean. Brian and Stephanie also offered tips to ourselves and other guests on bet sites to visit, etc. Easy walking distance to many attractions, and right on the 'Looper' route

The Inn on Third exceeded our expectations! Quaint, clean, and especially friendly. We totally enjoyed our overnight there. Loved the mix of travelers we spoke with at both the evening happy hour and the morning breakfast. Great value for the money.

Old time small hotel. Very clean and comfortable. Good wifi and quiet. Within walking distance to all this area has to offers. Owners are super accommodating and friendly. Reminds me of a typical German guest house ( they are fluent in German). Nice change from the big chain hotels. FREE PARKING, happy hour and adequate breakfast. Very enjoyable 4 day... More
