Certificate of Excellence
Sabal Palms Inn is a family run inn directly facing the Gulf of Mexico. The only thing that separates you from the sandy white beach and the warm Gulf waters is a small two way utility road. Located in historic Pass-a-Grille where there is nothing growing on the beach except for nature. Proud member of the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber or Commerce and the Superior Small Lodging Association. Winner of the 2015 SSL White Glove Award.

Hotel's Favorite
We just spent a week at the Sabal Palms, and it was the best vacation ever. We come to St. Pete every year. We usually stay at one of the larger hotels a little north, but we know the beach down south is less crowded, so we decided to just stay there. First, the staff. They're awesome! Judy the housekeeper is great. Super friendly and always there to help. Second: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! Can you find cheaper hotels with more amenities? Of course. However, this place is right across from the beach with access right there. Short walk. Little traffic. Beach not crowded at all. The inn itself isn't like a normal hotel room. Like a mini apartment. We had an ocean front room...room 1, and part of the week we were the only ones there. As far as negative reviews: Each room is described accurately. If you book a basement room, it's clear what you are getting. The pool is more like a giant hot tub, but it was great to have. The beds are very comfortable. Full size fridge, stove. Just great. I really can't say enough good things about this place. Definitely worth the price! Just wish I would have started staying here earlier. We'll be back every year!

We recently stayed here on a short trip to St. Pete Beach. We loved the quiet, quaint and simplistic atmosphere of this property! We were in a lower level room, and though it had a basement-like feel with not much natural light, it was very clean and pleasantly furnished! The location of Sabal Palms Inn can’t be beat! We will definitely stay here again when in the area!

AMAZING!! This place was clean, cozy and perfect for a week in Pass a Grille. Bikes and beach equipment are free to use, which was great since we flew down. Full kitchen was super-convenient and we were SO CLOSE to the beach!! Not to mention the staff, Chrissy Ann and Yudith were both very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We will refer our friends and will definitely stay here again!

The Sabal Palms Inn is located in a quiet area of St Pete Beach called Pass-A-Grille. This is an ideal location for a winter getaway, steps away from a magnificent beach, and only blocks away from quaint shops and restaurants with great food. We had a room facing the gulf with a patio from which to watch great sunsets nearly every night. The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially Judy, who has taken care of our room for us every year we have stayed there. The Inn has a very cozy and relaxed atmosphere, including repeat-stay guests such as ourselves. This was our fifth year at the Inn, and we have already made plans to return again for five weeks next winter. Our room had a fairly well outfitted kitchen, and the bed was very comfortable. Again, the patio was great and had furniture as well. The pool is a spa-pool, so it is always nice and warm, even on a cool day in February. Our only problem was the length of time it took to get any repairs made when needed. We have heard that they are looking for a dedicated part-time maintenance person which would help greatly. We are already looking forward to our stay next winter!

thank you so much for your wonderful review and especially for your business. We are so grateful for all our regular guests who return year after year. We did have a blip during busy season with maintenance help but luckily that has been resolved and we hope that ultimately we were able to take care of the issues you had while you were here. Please feel free to reach out to me directly with any concerns. We look forward to seeing you again next year!
