“Great hotel”
Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at this hotel and enjoyed the resort's location in Pass-A-Grille. We liked having a kitchen. Close to the ocean, restaurants and shops. The pool was very inviting. We would stay there again.

Stayed February 2014, traveled with friends

We had a gulf front suite (room 1) and we were really pleased with it. The room comfortably sleeps two adults and two children, with plenty of room to spare.
The kitchenette is well-equipped and clean. Utensils are in a good state.
Decor is modern (I think everything came from Ikea, but that's more than adequate). Bathroom also well maintained. Important: the airco works!
Grounds well maintained as is the (small) pool
Great view of ocean from the veranda, right across the street from the beach, onsite parking, walking distance from restaurants.
In short, you'd be silly not to stay here!

Room Tip: Definitely worth the extra few dollars for a gulf-front room

Our stay here was excellent the hotel provides you with everything you need, cooking implements, clean towels and the pool always clean, every day that we went out the worker Judith perfectly clean our room for us to use again .
there is also a clean grill ready for use any time we wanted and bicycles in perfect condition to use at any time ! the best part is that the hotel is a block away from the ocean, good restaurants and a delicious ice cram shop !

Room Tip: Don't rent the ones in the bottom if you are a light sleeper

Just returned home from another relaxing vacation, we go to Pass-A Grille every year for the week of Christmas, and again everything was perfect. Joe Caruso the owner is always making improvements, when you think it can't be better. He just built a beautiful patio with gas grill, wet bar and lots of seating at Coconut Inn, which is one of his other properties close by. He now has 3 properties all within walking distance. We love the Sabal Palms for its "old Florida funkiness". It's always nice to see the same employees year after year. We've been coming for at least 10 years now and Judy the housekeeper bends over backwards to keep everyone happy. It such a joy to see her every time! Eddie the manager is very professional at what he does. We will be back every year as long as we can!

Room Tip: All rooms have benefits, front has water view, rear has easy access to hot tub and grill.

From the time I was searching for a place in Pass-A-Grille to stay for a couple days to our arrival and departure, we had nothing but good experiences at this Inn which is part of a 3-Inn (Coconut Inn and Havana Inn are the others) property. And, Eddie was a great guy to work with from start to finish. My daughter and I had only a short time to stay (2-nights) but everything was just about perfect. We had a gulf side unit which allowed us a view of the ocean and an easy walk to the beach. The pool at the Sabal had a thermostat problem but we easily went a block away to the Coconut for a warm visit to the pool there. As I am awaiting a hip replacement, the beach, which is narrower in this area and packed the sand packed a little harder than further up St. Pete, allowed me to get to the water via the access ramp right across from the Inn, and do some shelling. The Inn provides beach chairs (and bikes if I was able to use one) for guests. We enjoyed short jaunts to some of the area restaurants which all have excellent seafood dinners and great atmospheres. It took us a day to get a Dolphin cruise because it was so close to Christmas that many of the lines were on limited trips but we did find one eventually. That certainly was not a fault of the Inn, just the time of year. We certainly plan on visiting again and hopefully will have more time the next trip. Having stayed in several other places on St. Pete Beach, none has matched this stay.

Room Tip: A Gulf view provides a beautiful sunset!

Only a few yards from the beach on the Gulf of Mexico, this is a great place to spend a winter! We stayed in January 2013, and are about to go back in a couple of days again, and cannot wait. The place is clean, well run, and staffed by Eddie and Judy who are very attentive and wonderful people to know. We were very pleased and are so looking forward to going back!

We took my 81 year old mother there and Eddie picked us up and took us back to the airport, took us to a grocery store for wine and breakfast things and treated us like family. He was there to help my mom up stairs, to get her to the beach. Location perfect with walkable restaurants and sunsets. I'm a travel writer and this is a secret spot for a low key getaway.

Room Tip: Get ocean view and sit on porch
