This cute little older boutique hotel was just what we ordered for the price. It was in walking distance from Beach Street and had a nice little cold breakfast buffet. I didn't give it 4 stars cause I think they should tell you that there is no elevator. My sister had a hard time getting up the steps. Bed was... More

When we first arrived at the Cordova Inn in St. Petersburg, I was struck by the excellent location and charming building and porch. We parked the car and I went in to get a parking pass.

This hotel was okay for the money as far as location goes. The down side : its a bit run-down, the bathroom was so small that the door swings out because there is no room in the bathroom for it to be ! The worst part was you had to ask for ice because it was kept in some back... More

We really wanted to like the Cordova Inn, but found the facility to be less than then 4 out 5 stars (as of this writing) the hotel is getting.

I stayed here for a night... I found a great price on hotels.com ($89) so I decided to give it a shot. The hotel itself is cute and has an authentic historic vibe with a cute lobby, antique furniture and a great front porch. The location is also great, close to bars and restaurants and only a $5-6 uber to... More

The hotel is "boutique" with an ambiance of pre-1950. The "old South" porch is an excellent location for breakfast, drinks, people-watching. The staff is professional, friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Most of the city's attractions (museums, restaurants, galleries, historical landmarks) are within blocks and easy walking distance. Our room was clean, furnished with period furniture. The bathroom was small:... More
