“Love this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We go to the Bon Aire every year. This year we brought 16 friends with us and they all loved it. This hotel is not a big chain hotel, it is family run. It is right on the beach and has a tiki bar on premises with good food and drinks! You really cannot find a better hotel on the beach for the price. We love the staff, especially Theresa, Jackie, Richard, Jenna, Leslie, and of course, Hot Alex.

We enjoy the Bon Aire year after year. The staff is great and we feel like family. The view of the beach is the best, and dont forget to try a burger at Sand Bar Bill's.

After reading many good reviews about the Bon Aire, we decided to give it a try. It is an old place but has been kept up pretty well. Our room was clean and large, although not worth the money that was spent per night. You could see sunlight through the front door and the doors within the room didn't want to shut easily. The pools are nice and the hamburgers are really good at the bar. It is definitely a party place, so if you are looking for somewhere quiet, I wouldn't suggest staying here. But that didn't bother us at all. Here is why I would never stay here again. The customer service is atrocious. The only good service we encountered was the bartender during the day and the night time clerk. The day time clerks were rude and not helpful at all. It was as if we were bothering them and didn't care at all about anything we said. The hotel industry is a customer service industry. Apparently, the office people didn't get the memo. It is unfortunate, because I think this place would be a neat place to go back too - if you don't mind an older style motel and people who like to party.

I have been frequenting the Bon Aire for years as a local. Now that we have moved away I cherish short visits back. I am never disappointed and hope to return again, as often as possible. This family-run business has several long-time staff, like Jackie & Leslie, who greet you like old friends. Since the passing of owner Bill, the Curotto family has been intently focused on keeping the hotel a welcoming spot on beautiful St. Pete Beach. I have brought many friends, and made dear friends along the way to this family owned and run locale. I can't imagine staying anywhere else. There is a reason visitors return year after year. -L.Eckart, Brooksville, FL

Room Tip: Any room is a short walk to the pool, beach or tiki bar. Choose what works for your budget.

We loved our one night here! We got a room on the end and had a beach view through the Palm Trees. Sandbar Bills was great and so convenient. Our visiting grandsons who live close by loved the cheeseburgers and hot-dogs. Drinks were reasonably priced. We had a wonderful beach day swimming and sunning-the weather was perfect. Unfortunately, one grandson got bit by a jelly fish (as did some others). OUCH! Be aware of these while swimming. We really recommend this place! Only a couple of things were a disappointment. No wi-fi or if there was there was no information about it in the room, could not get a connection. Also would have liked some information regarding the area stores, restaurants, etc which is usually provided in most places we stay.However, can't wait to go back and stay for a longer time!

We have been going to the Bon Aire for over 3 years. Every time we go it gets better, great family owned property with perfect location. Very friendly staff, the pools are clean and the sandbar serves up great drinks, with a smile.

Loved it! We don't live in fla anymore but all our family does. We were looking for a place to stay on the beach where they could come visit us and close to things we needed to do while there. This was just right. Nice family place but you can have a great margarita at "Bill's" the burgers were really good too! 24 hour Walgreens right across the street. Chick fil a a block away and Publix too. No need to start the car. We got a free ( tips only) golf cart ride to dinner at Sea Critters. Good food there too.
Nice big beach, lots of chairs, clean pools, plenty of towels, cute little kitchen, beds were nothing like home but after a long day in the sun we slept fine. Super clean place. Well kept grounds. Love the flowering trees. Can't wait to go back with all my family and stay a week!!
