We chose to stay here somewhat last minute rather than a tampa airport hotel. I am so glad we did. The inn is 30min from the airport but it felt a million miles away. The location is great. We walked to the restaurants in st Pete's. Morgan is a wonderful host and we enjoyed spending time in his home. The... More

The Tranquility Palms Inn is more than your home away from home. It´s a dream come true. The owner and host, Morgan Gaffney, has created a luxury oasis in Snell Isle, the most affluent waterfront neighborhood in St. Petersburg. His exquisite taste is present in every room, every detail, which creates a space where you can, not only relax and... More

I wish we could have stayed longer but we were in to see a baseball game at Tropicana Field and then an early flight in the morning. Ideal location for the ballpark! Avoided all traffic by taking side roads home. And it felt like home! Took a nice hot shower and fell right to sleep. Morgan even got up at... More

There are so many wonderful things about Tranquility Palms that it’s hard to know where to start. Located on beautiful Snell Isle, the Inn is the master work of owner/designer Morgan Gaffney who transformed an ordinary Florida house into an unbelievably gorgeous Mediterranean villa. Every room is immaculate and elegant yet warm and welcoming too. We stayed in the Bamboo... More

My husband and I were excited to see that there was finally a B&B in St.Pete as we have been coming down here for the past 3 winters. We typically stay right on the beach at a hotel but were excited to stay close to downtown this time. Upon arrival, Morgan, the owner, graciously welcomed us into his beautiful home!... More

My husband and I visited The Tranquility Palms Inn at the end of March for a one night stay to celebrate our 3-year wedding anniversary. We were looking for a quiet retreat to relax in away from Clearwater where we were staying for the rest of our Florida trip. We couldn't have asked for a better place! We stayed in... More

My husband and I stayed at the B&B. This was our first experience and truthfully were not really sure what to expect. Morgan was wonderful. He made us feel welcome in a very luxurious home. The property is in a neighborhood, so you feel quite safe. Morgan gave us wonderful suggestions for dinner downtown. We had wonderful conversation with another... More

Morgan is the perfect owner and host for a B and B. He is funny, warm, knowledgeable and sensitive to his guests needs. His impact extended to extensive and expert remodeling that created beautiful places, inside and outside. And, he makes terrific breakfasts!

Everything about the accommodation in this b&b was lovely- great room, bathroom and living area. However it let itself down in a couple of areas: beds not made up for you -this has never happened to us before and we travel to lots of b&bs ; breakfast offer was monotonous, although you can ask for something a little different from...
