Reviewed August 30, 2010

OH man, Inn on Beach felt like it was 100 miles away, even though it is only 7. Location is awesome- several places to eat & drink- we never got back in our car. Oh yeah- the beach is awesome too!

This has been my/our third stay and each one has been very good. Sheila is wonderful and the only thing this Inn is missing is a pool. Our room was nice and we spent all our time at the beach. This little community is fun and eclectic. I will definitely come back. Soon!

In June, my partner and I were going to be in St. Petersburg for a high school graduation, and we decided we'd like to stay in the St. Pete Beach area, right on the gulf. We looked on the Internet at quite a few different places, condominiums as well as small hotels, and we ended up making the best possible choice -- the charming, comfortable Inn on the Beach in Pass-a-Grille. We called and talked with Sheila, the knowledgeable and ever-helpful innkeeper, and we were fortunate enough to be able to book the Spoonbill Room upstairs. This was perfect for us, quiet but with a small balcony overlooking the gulf (which is across a street, but nevertheless close by and beautiful).

When we checked in, Sheila made us feel very welcome and asked if she could help with anything. When we said we thought we'd like to see a movie, she looked on the Internet and printed out for us the schedule for a movie house up the beach. She also told us about a marvelous Mexican restaurant called Agave, up near the movie theater. So our first afternoon and evening there couldn't have been more enjoyable -- a warm welcome, an extremely comfortable room, a delicious meal, and a good movie. After we got back to the Inn and had parked for the night, we walked over to the beach and took a stroll in the moonlight, with a very welcome breeze off the gulf.

The rest of our week there was equally fine, and we particularly enjoyed the fresh fruit for breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. So do yourself a favor. If you are looking for a place in the St. Pete Beach area, look no further than charming Pass-a-Grille and the excellent Inn on the Beach.

Visited the Inn for our anniversary of July 4th weekend. While the weather wasn't the best, the Inn was great. Nice little boutique hotel more than a B&B. Stayed in the Pelican room. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean - can't ask for much more than that Location was awesome. Less than a minute to the beach - right across Gulf Way. Short walk to all the Pass-a-Grille restaurants. We've been coming to this beach for years for the day, first time we stayed over. Will definitely do it again and stay at the Inn.

We have been coming to Pass a Grille for a about a Year. This was first visit to Inn on the beach. But definitely not our last. Shelia was wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The beach is beautiful and so easy to get to. The room very clean and everything you could want. We are planning to be back again in July.

This place is located right across the beach in Pass-A-Grille so you can really forget about your car and walk to the shore or to restaurants, bars, etc. We stayed in the Hibiscus room, which is on the ground floor and has a small shared patio. It has a well-equipped kitchen and small dining area as well. The bed was pretty comfortable but the A/C unit is very loud so that posed a problem at night (even with earplugs). Staff was nice and helpful although one of the days our room didn't get made/cleaned but we did not complain about it. Their wi-fi is pretty fast and free and they offer coffee in the mornings. Another plus was having beach chairs and beach towels available for guests. Overall a great place to stay in Pass-A-Grille. Would definitely go back!

My wife and I stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend and we had a perfect stay. The room was spotless and the price was right. The Inn is directly across from the beach, and a quick walk along the surf brings you to a number of nice restaurants - the perfect way to travel.

The interior courtyard was a nice touch and a great place to close out the evening with a glass of wine under the stars. Above all, we were surpised at how quiet it was; not even any cars.

I highly recommend the Inn and will definitely return.

By the way, we stayed in the Periwinkle room.
