Recently we stayed here and needed to extend our stay due to a death in the family. The owners accommodated our request and we were able to stay in one room for 9 nights. Not having to relocate during this difficult time was one less thing we needed to worry about and provided great peace of mind. Although we were not there much we have stayed here before and always had a great time. We will be back soon, hopefully under different circumstances but it is nice to know how accommodating they are.

During a recent trip to St Pete we selected the Watergarden Inn for a 2 night stay and discovered a new home! Beautiful, clean and perfect location. Anthony and Crissy are superb hosts and did everything to ensure a perfect experience. The Veranda Suite was an excellent choice for us providing ample space and we loved the wrap around porch. I look forward to returning soon!

Quick 2 night stay at the end of a business trip. Cozy, unpretentious, clean and comfortable in a great location. Managers Crissie and Anthony were warm and friendly. Eager to help and advise. My room was as pictured on the website. Loved having the wrap around porch right outside my door. Great place to relax and watch the world meander by.
