We spent two days at Inn on the Beach and the only complant I have is that we didn't arrange to stay longer. Amazing location with the Inn being right across the street from the beach and ocean. The location is very quite with large hotels being a couple of miles away. The beach was wonderfful and not crowded, at night we were the only ones on it. Cute shops and wonderful restaurants were only a 5 minute walk away. If you are looking for a great place to get away from the college crowd this is the one.

Having visited Pass a grille many times for day trips we decided to do an overnight stay on our recent trip to Florida.
It was wonderful. Our room was ready early for us to check in and what a wonderful room it was. We stayed in the 'plumeira'. It was an excellent size and the kitchen was so well stocked with everything u could wish for. Our deck with wicker sofa and chair looked out towards the street but we could see the gulf sunset ( this surpassed Key West, Mallory Sq) The bathroom was beautiful rivalling a 5 star chain hotel.
I cannot praise this hotel enough. The booking process was very smooth. I checked availability online. Then gave a quick call with my cc details. When my husband went upto the office Dee new who we were etc. The outdoor bbq grill is a great feature. Lots of beach chairs available to borrow and the freshly brewing coffee in the morning was great.
There are a couple of local stores for basic provisions. A few bars and restaurants are close by but do not go expecting nightlife. Tranquility is the order of the day and night.
The Inn on the Beach is pure unadulterated pleasure. ......thanks for having us!!!!

My husband and I spent a wonderful, relaxing week at Inn on the Beach and couldn't have asked for a better place! So close to the beach and within walking distance to cute little shops and restaraunts. We stayed in The Egret room with a nice view of the Gulf. On the weekends the Innkeeper puts out a nice variety of pastries, fruit, mufiins, etc and each morning there is fresh coffee brewing. Sheila the Innkeeper and Dee the Assistant Innkeeper were very friendly and so helpful, always asking what they can do for you. We loved our room, and I highly recommend getting a top floor room if you can. We had a nice little kitchen, and the bed was super comfy (king sized). The bathroom shower was really nice too. We have stayed at other places before up the street, but after staying here, we would not choose to stay anywhere else. The other guests were very friendly, and other than some loud voices a few times that we heard during the evening hours in the courtyard, the place was really quiet. There is very little street noise as well. There is a grill in the courtyard too, if you would choose to grill out. It was really nice having a balcony to sit on in the morning as we had our coffee, and then in the evening for drinks. We had several guests come to visit us there and they also really thought is was great! There was no pool, but it really didn't matter to us. It's just a 2 minute walk to the beach. Thanks Sheila and everyone else there for a great week!! The Taddeos/Cleveland, OH

My husband and I spent two days at Inn on the Beach at Pass-a-Grille, St. Pete's, Florida. We loved the location as we were right across a quiet street from the beautiful beach and the Gulf. Great sunsets. We were pleasantly surprised to have stumbled upon this Inn in a great quiet location. The Innkeeper is very nice.

There is complimentary coffee in the morning in a small public area outside which is a nice touch. You can also use beach chairs and beach towels for guests. There are no bicycles or pool. We stayed in the Orchid room and we were impressed with the size of the room - two double beds with a nice fully equipped kitchen. This was a bonus as we didn't realize they were efficiency units.

But upon staying there the first night we quickly realized this room was not sound proof. We were on the ground floor and could hear EVERY little noise from the unit above us - and I'm telling you some noises we did NOT want to hear. The furniture was being scraped on the floor. We could hear the people walking around and even snoring!! Plus other things !!

The beds should be upgraded and also the TV and the linens. The unit was very clean though.

We really enjoyed the surroundings, gardens and little courtyard but found the room to be a bit overpriced considering some of the negatives we experienced with this unit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on second floor so you don't hear noise coming from units above.

Thank you so much, Shar0nOntari0, for taking the time to review your stay at the Inn - we appreciate your constructive comments. Glad you enjoyed spending time in our central courtyard, and the beach area in which we are located. I'm sorry you were disturbed by some noise above you; if I would have been aware of the situation I would certainly have attempted to do something to take care of it. It hasn't been a regular occurrence. Upgrades are an ongoing process for us, and its true the Orchid Room, along with a couple of other rooms, still has an older-style television, unlike most of our other rooms which have flat screen TVs. We also take a lot of care to use 100% cotton linens and our sheets are selected for their thread count and color, among other considerations. I'm sorry you weren't happy with yours. The mattresses and box springs in the Orchid Room are 5 years old or less, but I understand that mattresses don't always feel the best for everyone, so I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the sleep experience at the Inn. If you get another opportunity to visit the area, we hope you will give us a second chance to help you enjoy Pass-a-grille - and good luck with your future endeavours!

My husband and I stayed at the Inn on the Beach during the week leading up to our wedding. We have a fantastic time and nearly two years later we wanted to return to experience Pass-a-grille again. We stayed in the Blue Heron room and had a fantastic sunset view from our balcony. The balcony makes this room! The Innkeeper, Shelia, was as always so friendly and the room had everything that we needed along with comfort. I will definitely be returning in the near future.

Room Tip: The Blue Heron has a great balcony with a wonderful view of the beach.

Pass A Grill offers all of the beauty of being a stone throw from the surf, great restaurants, trendy shops and art stores, harbors, but none of the traffic and crowds of St. Petes. The beach is gorgeous and steps from your room. But, perhaps the single best thing about staying at Inn on the Beach is Sheila's (and her staff's) ability to provide a sense of guest privacy while also providing prompt service/assistance when required.

Room Tip: All rooms open directly onto the courtyard. If you plan to spend much of your time in your room, yo...

This is a small inn across the street from the beach. The street is meaningless; there is more traffic in some hotel parking lots. We were steps from the ocean and actually much closer than we have sometimes been when staying in ocean-front places. Chairs and towels are available for guests.
There are only 15 units, with 12 opening off of the central courtyard. We stayed in an efficiency that was a few steps separate from the courtyard. It was very clean and well-maintained. There was maid service twice the first week and then weekly there-after, but towels are replaced every day.
We will be back. We love Pass-a-Grille and now we love the Inn-on-the-Beach, too.
