“Avoid this hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2004

This hotel, also called the "Historic Colonial Inn & Spa" is to be avoided. I needed to stay in downtown St. Pete, which can be pricey, and this hotel offered excellent rates. It's in a fantastic location, attractive on the outside, and has a friendly and helpful front desk staff. That's the good part. The bad part is that the rooms are in terrible shape with broken equipment, old beds, dirty bedspreads and awful smells. The whole place is infested with various bugs. The bathrooms are disgusting. The air conditioning is noisy. I wish I could recommend this place because the front desk staff is so nice, and because it's a pretty old building in the center of tourist attractions. But I'd suggest anyone avoid it if possible.
