Upon check in my wife and I were given room keys to another guests room! Thank goodness they weren't in the room when we walked in. Front desk seemed to care less about the mistake. Beds are quite worn and uncomfortable. No fan in the bathroom but there was a window, which was right at your midsection level and faced... More

Staff was professional and friendly up on check in. Jj helped to make us feel home during our stay and able to answer all our questions like; where do we find a good stake restaurant and where is the nearest bicycle rental etc. Room was comfortable, hotel 3 minutes walk from nightlife, nevertheless safe and quite. Will stay again.

Traveled for a get away for my husbands birthday and to attend a concert. Sweet cozy little hotel. Room was comfortable and clean and had all we needed. Our bed was comfortable and my husband and I both slept well. Shower was roomy too. Staff was super helpful and friendly. We will go back again!

Located just a block from restaurants, bars, and a soccer stadium. Staff was nice, rooms were "cute", and didn't hear any noise pollution. The bathrooms could get a facelift but hardly anything to complain about. No rollaway beds and no "on site" parking but a garage is just a block over.

It started lovely. We had the largest suite available on the top floor - the room was visually immaculate for the price. The hotel had that perfect rustic vibe, our modern room even had the old school real metal key. The front desk was helpful and all smiles. Parking was perfect and cheap for downtown. Parking was located across the... More

We found our place to stay anytime we visit St. Pete...Ponce De Leon is a very cool place to hang your hat when in St Petersburg. Close to downtown, great restaurants, shopping and waterfront. The rooms were clean and quiet, people friendly what more can you ask for...great place.

After scouring for a hotel in the heart of St. Pete, it seemed everything was close to $300+ a night, when lucky for us, a room opened up at Ponce DeLeon. The hotel is small and unexciting upon entering; however, our standard queen room was quaint, newly decorated, and cute. The room reminded us of what you expect from a... More

Great old building, in a wonderful location in downtown St,Petersburg. Price is right, about 1/2 of what you would pay in other downtown hotels. The room was very clean, TV worked great, staff very helpful. The bed could be updated, along with the decor. For the price great value.

Very cute and very clean, with an old timey feel. Every one was super helpful and nice. We asked about local restraunts and directed us to an amazing tapas bar, and helped us find a place for breakfast, my only complaint is having to pay for parking in the garage down the street but that was only about 5$
