“Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

This was our third vacation at Sabal Palms Inn (two weeks stay) and once again we loved being there. In fact we convinced our son from MI to meet us there and they loved it too. The rooms are kept immaculate by Judy who has excellent housekeeping skills and a wonderful personality. Eddy is also a treasure... he's ready to help out with anything. The Inn's location is great. If you like the beach, it's right across from the Inn, or if you enjoy sitting quietly by the pool there is plenty of privacy. We can't wait to go back.

We stayed four nights. Sabal palms is right on the beach. They have chairs, bikes, a grill, spa pool, and picnic tables. Eddy was ready and willing to help when ever we needed him. The Inn is very clean and quiet. Our room was smaller than we had wanted, but really was perfect. The weather was warm and sunny so we spent very little time indoors. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to be at the beach.

We just returned from a week at Sabal Palms in Pass A Grille. Beautiful place. We stayed in Unit 3 right on the waterfront. Cant say enough about the cleanliness and the helpful staff, especially Judith and Eddie. We are already looking forward to next year and hope to rent an additional unit so that our family can join us.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front of the hotel look out at the water.

Once again we enjoyed a fabulous visit at the Sabal Palms Inn in Pass-a-Grille, St. Pete Beach. first stayed with Joe about 12 years ago and have been going ever since. Yudit, Emegdio, and Eddie will do anything to make one's stay successful; the laid back nature of Pass-a-Grill, walking distance to everything, and exquisite sunsets make this a destination not to be missed!

Room Tip: Rooms 1,2,&3 have the best views.

Our second visit to Sabal Palms and Pass-A-Grille. At Sabal Palms Inn, Yudit is a great resource; very friendly, willing to go above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable. Quiet historical area. So convenient, right across the street from the beach, walking distance to several places to eat and the Merry Pier. Recommend the trip to Shell Key!
Thanks!
Chris and Leila

We stayed at this hotel and enjoyed the resort's location in Pass-A-Grille. We liked having a kitchen. Close to the ocean, restaurants and shops. The pool was very inviting. We would stay there again.

We had a gulf front suite (room 1) and we were really pleased with it. The room comfortably sleeps two adults and two children, with plenty of room to spare.
The kitchenette is well-equipped and clean. Utensils are in a good state.
Decor is modern (I think everything came from Ikea, but that's more than adequate). Bathroom also well maintained. Important: the airco works!
Grounds well maintained as is the (small) pool
Great view of ocean from the veranda, right across the street from the beach, onsite parking, walking distance from restaurants.
In short, you'd be silly not to stay here!

Room Tip: Definitely worth the extra few dollars for a gulf-front room
