My boyfriend and I stayed at the inn over the Independence Day holiday weekend. We went on a road trip from Miami to attend a Tampa Bay Rays baseball game. We needed a clean and comfortable place to spend the night, and we chose the inn based on the reviews. The inn is in a great location within easy walking... More

I had the pleasure of staying with my mother here for July 4th weekend. My main reason for this stay was to visit the St. Pete downtown area - haven't seen the area in about 25 years. I wanted a place within walking distance to downtown. I got that- and so much more- at The Inn on Third! Stephanie is... More

Both Bryan and Stephanie, the owners, were helpful, warm and friendly. The room was super clean and comfortable, and the bathroom was immaculate! The location is wonderful for going downtown or to a baseball game. They offered a free continental breakfast in the morning and happy hour drinks at night. I will definitely book there again!

We could not have been happier at twice the price! The room was nice, the staff very friendly and helpful and the location worked well for us. This is a great place for a single or a couple, with an evening social, i.e. happy Hour and a simple breakfast in the morning. The location was quiet, which we appreciated very... More

My younger brother and I stayed here for two nights and we both agree this is our new favorite Inn in St. Petersburg.

It's an old-fashioned inn with old-fashioned amenities. Each piece of furniture is a delight and there was good company at breakfast and happy hour. The Inn is walking distance from many attractions and the trolley stop is right across the street. When I go back to St. Pete, I'll go back to The Inn on Third.

Very friendly and accomodating hosts/proprietors. With european attention to detail and personal attention to guests needs. The rooms are modest in size but so is the price. Clean and very comfortable. Great location to downtown. Walking distance to Dali museum.

Small inn downtown, great alternative to a chain hotel. Older house decorated with antiques, Brian & Stephanie are very hospitable proprietors. Rooms are small but comfortable and quiet, wifi and flat screen tv. Nice continental breakfast, wine and a chance to meet interesting people 5-7. Walking distance to the parks, restaurants and museums. Very affordable!
