“Beating the Cold Weather Blahs”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

This place is our home away from home in a lovely setting. It is a perfect place to relax and rejuvenate in quiet comfort. We always stock up on food and staples at the local Publix store, then relax at the Coconut. I cook breakfast after walking the beach, and my husband serves up some type of seafood dinner in the evening. Between times, we head for the beach and watch the birds and dolphins fish. It is an extraordinary area.
We enjoy the outside craft and art sales at the beach shop during the weekend. Plus people watching is spectacular. We always hit the museum, just to reflect on the history of Pass-a-Grille.
Exceptional side trips include canoeing at Fort DeSoto to see the Manatees and of course, Shell Island, a bird preserve, where one might walk the beach for hours.
As others have said, the staff at the Inn are very professional and will go out of their way to help you have a great time. Kudos to the owner,Joe, and all staff for offering such a fine, family-oriented (or romantic) establishment.

The location is great, the pool is heated, the bicycles are a plus. The staff is helpful, the unit I stayed in, was clean, bright and would be perfect if the walls were a bit more sound proof. As I came out of the shower, I thought people were in my room, although they were next door and appeared to be speaking at a normal tone. There were no real noise issue, with other guests, and I would return. The easy going low key feeling of Pass-a-Grille makes this area of FL most desirable. The beautiful sunsets could be seen from the upper deck of this hotel, or a block away at the beach.

We had to change hotels mid-week and luckily they had room for us - they let us check in early and use their common area to store our bags and already bought food. The beach was super close and right next to the beach hut where you could get food, drinks, shower and rent a beach cabana. Also at night your kids can ring the bell at the Pass-a-grille beach.

The hotel had a great pool (not super big but perfect for kids to have fun in when the beach was too hot). The rooms have all been recently updated and the kitchens were big enough to actually cook in (we did several times). The price seemed perfect for what they offered. Eddie and Anna are great! It was a relaxing trip!

Room Tip: If you have kids, don't get a studio - that was all they had left when we went and we were desep...

We spent last weekend at the Coconut Inn and loved it. In 1998 we had stayed at their sister property, the Sabal Palms, and remembered the great location just across from the beach. When we contacted Sabal Palms they had availability at the Coconut Inn, which is even closer to the beach walkway and a very pretty property. They have two buildings with a small pool in between and the white buildings with yellow awnings over every window made it very pretty. Our studio was very clean and comfortable and we liked the kitchen which gave us the opportunity to eat breakfast in our room. The staff we met were all very friendly and helpful. We are hoping to return soon for a longer stay!

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor of the building next to the office which gave us a view of the beach f...

I love Pass a Grille and the Coconut Inn reflects the laidback, friendly, old-time beach town feel.

We stayed a week at the Coconut Inn and enjoyed every minute. It is a block to the beach, near the restaurants on 8th and 9th Ave., and a short walk to the restaurants on 22nd Ave. The staff was always helpful and pleasant. The rooms are clean with a crisp decor. Plus, prices are reasonable!

A week at Coconut Inn was just what the doctor ordered. The rooms are clean and well equipped (they are not fancy, but neither is the price) and they vary in size from quite small to more spacious. All look out over the pool or at the beach 1 block away. Eddie and Anna were incredbily welcoming, helpful and accomodating. ALong with the rest of the Cocunut Staff, they worked non stop to keep the place the grounds sparkling (e.g.,Eddie's brother could be seen every day at 5 p.m. RAKING the stone walkway of the side drive leading to the parking; they were touching up outside paint around the pool that was hardly worn, and they carefully cleaned the pool deck each evening). All of the guests clealry loved being there and mixed well with each other in the early evening around the pool, sharing stories of how they spent their days. We used the bikes almost every day to get provisions and grilled dinner twice on the Weber Grill out back.

Passe Grill: A few people noted that this place was "boring" --the nice thing about St. Pete Beach is that there is something for everyone. We love Passe Grille because it is not loud and full of things to do but if activity is your thing, you can stay up near Treasure Island. Passe Grile offered all we wanted and more-a low key atmosphere to unplug in, access to great food at the local deli/market, and a choice of walkable restuarnats with great views and fresh grouper. The beach surrounding Paradise Grille is staffed by another group of friendly people who go out of their way to make your vacation great.

Room Tip: Rooms vary--talk to Eddie and let him know what matters most to you--size, ocean view, quiet, etc.

We stayed at the Coconut Inn for a family reunion in August. We has two rooms, which were upstairs. Room # 4 and #5. Although they were a little small, they had everything we needed and were very clean. Room #5 had a view of the gulf and a small balcony which was lovely. We also had family members staying at the sister property of Sable Palms. Bioth properties had swimming pools which is great after a day at the beach with the kids. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. Beach chairs, bikes, umbrellas were ours to use through our visit, which was 7 days. Everything from shopping and restaurants were within walking distance. It was, however to use the laundry facilities at the Coconut Inn as they are not available for guest use until 4:30pm, so we used a laundrymat down the street. We will be back!
