If you have traveled the world you will love this place! Not a new place but certainly not run down. The decor is eclectic and as soon as I walked in I new I made the right choice. In St Pete it's my first choice from now on. The front desk staff was as eclectic as the decor and all... More

Despite the mean title I posted the hotel was meh ok. I found this hotel as a last minute stay because of the cheapest price in comparison to all the other places. I got the smallest room available at 122.08 for a room that at the most would be 200-300 sq ft if that. I could literally reach the fridge... More

My husband and I love St Pete and this time we wanted to stay in the downtown area to be walking distance to all the activity. This hotel is very well located, you can walk to museums, restaurants, shops and everything in the lively and fun downtown area. Downside is that the hotel is outdated, bathrooms urgently need renovations and... More

Quaint old hotel right in downtown St. Petersburg. Only parking is on the street after 6 PM or pay in a garage about a block away. Rooms and bathroom are small, typical for an older hotel, but there are no clocks or radios in the room, only 1 wastebasket and they don't provide Kleenex tissues. There are no coffee or... More

Stayed here for an overnight work trip. Strange layout of the room/bathroom-our sink was literally in our bedroom and the rooms were kind off loud in the morning. Clean and nice staff. Fantastic location if you are looking to be downtown. Overall good value for a short stay.

This is an old hotel with lots of history, It is walking distance to many interesting restaurants, the marina and beaches, museums and many nightclubs. The room was clean but dated as to be expected. It is a very good value and somewhere we plan to visit again.

Ended up staying in DT st Pete on the fly for my boyfriends birthday. This hotel is within walking distance of a bunch of bars and the cheapest in the area of walking distance to DT. Staff was friendly. "Mini bar" has pop and water at $2 a piece. Worth it.

I vacillated between three and four stars but didn't want to be misleading. Let me say that our stay at this hotel was fine. It's cute but old and they are still remodeling it. If your not out for a little adventure don't stay here. You can go next door and pay $269 per night or down the block for... More

We had a few small issues and Audrey was very happy to take care of us and fix us up. Keep in min that his is an old hotel with tonnes of History and that is the reason for the age. All was taken care of and over all we where happy. Thanks, Clint.

I have stayed here twice with friends over the past couple months. We live in the Bay area but were going to a concert at Jannus and wanted to stay somewhere close so we could drink and not worry about driving anywhere. This is an old hotel, but it is clean, the beds are nice, and it is pretty affordable.... More
