“Great weekend at the Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

We had a wonderful time at the Inn. We have been coming to Inn On the Beach for quite a few years and it never lets us down. Shelia and her staff do an awesome job of making everyone feel welcome and taking care of their needs. Beach is great. Can't wait to come back .Thanks Shelia we will be back soon.

Room Tip: Haven't ever had a bad room.

Our first time back to St Pete Beach for 19 years and why did we wait so long? Pass-a-Grille gets busy during the day (so free on-site parking or the provided on-street permits are a god-send) but in early morning and later this is a peace of heaven.

The Inn on the Beach is extremely good value - having complimentary coffee every morning and continental breakfast at weekends made getting up that much easier but there are several other breakfast options within a few minutes walking distance. We stayed in Plumeria which had plenty of room with its kitchen area and private ground floor balcony. Although the balcony is next to the road it is extremely quiet and perfect for watching such comings and goings as there are on a one block long street.

The beach is literally across the road and we walked for miles in the shallows. Nearby is the pier where we saw dolphins competing for fish with the anglers. Don't miss the fascinating PaG history museum where you can get a free walk leaflet around the neighbourhood. If the Thrift Shop is open do go in - it's a real treasure trove.

We loved Sea Critters for dinner - you have to ask for the Shellfish Boil as its not shown on the menu. Their home made Key Lime Pie is excellent.

Inn on the Beach makes an ideal base either for just relaxing at the Beach or sightseeing further afield - we took in Baseball at Tropicana Field, the Dali museum and were blown away by the Chihuly glass exhibition at St Petersburg. Oh and the shopping at Bradenton across the Skyline Bridge was perfect for our one wet day.

Sheila and Dee are excellent innkeepers and we hope to be able to return before too long.Thank you for making a great start to our holiday.

Room Tip: All the rooms are different - call the Inn to discuss just what you need.

A lovely hotel in an excellent location. We couldn't fault anything about our recent stay except we had to leave before the end of our trip as the hotel was full. Continental breakfast was served at weekends which was a relaxing experience

Room Tip: We had Spoonbill which was very comfortable with a partial sea view

My girlfriend and I had a great time! We stayed in the sunflower room and it was perfect! The complimentary coffee and beach chairs were a nice touch. We will definitely be back, such a cute, cozy, quiet inn and perfect location for the price.

We returned to the inn for just one night in April while on an 8 day SW Florida jaunt. Last year we stayed in Plumeria and this year in Periwinkle...both are on the ground floor with street views. We like the cozy feel of Pass-A-Grille and its proximity to Fort DeSoto (North Beach is gorgeous!) which is why we headed back this Spring. The inn is just across the street from a wide, lovely beach perfect for viewing the sunset! If we return to this area, we'll stay here again and would upgrade to a second floor unit with a view if staying more than a night. This place is a little gem!

Room Tip: The bathroom in Periwinkle is very small! The bed does have 2 nightstands w/lamps for reading. The b...

Amazing, booked into Blue Heron for 2 nights within minutes of arriving we had decided it had to be 3, luckily for us the room was free.Sheila could not have been more welcoming. The website room shots, don't do them justice, our room was light and bright, with the most amazing gulf view. Can't understand the negative reviews regarding not being able to see the beach ? you have amazing 180 degree views of the gulf did the inability to see a 40 ' strip of white beach beyond the dunes detract ? NO did the fact that it was not on the beach detract? NO it really was no more than 60 steps, making it easy early morning to grab a coffee ( provided in the courtyard ) and to sit on one of the benches on the beach, watching the pelican swoop by and the little waders dip in and out of the surf . PAG really is Florida at its best. Will be back in a heartbeat. You can keep,the 5 star high rises the Inn on The Beach gets a 6.

Room Tip: Do your homework, if a gulf view and a sunset view matters then not every room has one but you won...

Had a great experience staying at the Inn on the Beach! We booked last minute on Easter weekend and stayed in the Pelican room. My husband asked me if I read any reviews before I booked.....I didn't and was slightly nervous about arriving. It was very clean (beach buildings usually have that damp smell...not here!), cozy, and the perfect setting if you're looking to stay on the beach! Wish we could have stayed longer....I'm sure we'll be back in the future!
