This hotel is very cozy, clean and pleasant. Hotel has a small refrigirator and very important, "free parking".They provide breakfast & wine in the evening. The noise some 1 wrote about, I did not hear, it is quiet in the evening... Hotel is just a couple of blocks to all entertainment, dining, museaums, shops. If you want to go to... More

I found living in The Inn on Third very relaxing & comfortable this January. I was coming here to work at a completely new place and I had to fix everything from Singapore and so I was rather anxious whether everything would go as planned.

I checked in for one night as the convention hotel was full. On the way out the manager Stephanie went out of her way to accommodate my needs. Had several special needs which she addressed promptly. Her background is German and so she was really efficient at her duties and friendly too. Would recommend this team to anyone.

We just returned from a two day baseball outing in St. Pete and I don't believe we could have found a better place to stay. Small, intimate, homey and immaculately clean. This is an older smaller inn that has been well maintained / restored. None of the "old building" smell at all. The owners Brian and Stephanie are most gracious... More

We were in st Petersburg for one night for a baseball game. We chose this hotel for the location. It was an easy walk to pier area as well as Tropicana field. Definitely more of an inn than hotel/motel. Very clean and comfortable. Room tiny but sufficient for one night. Bed was fine. Breakfast was your typical free continental fare.... More
