Picked the Bon Aire as half of our party had stayed here 20 odd years earlier and after reading the many reviews on Trip Advisor. It really is a picture perfect, old style motel, right on the beach and straight out of a 50's or 60's movie set. Reception right out front and the rooms flanking either side of the central car parking area with the pool to the rear and the Tiki Bar, beach and the ocean beyond. The location is stunning, St Pete Beach really is incredible and although it blew a gale for the two days that we stayed there we still enjoyed strolling along the beach, even though we couldn't lay on it. Pool area is quite small but about average for the size of the property. The rooms that we had ( two adults in one and two adults and one teen in the other ) were clean and tidy but did seem old fashioned and in need of refurbishment. Having said that it did rather add to the charm of of the Bon Aire but it may not suit everybodys taste if they are used to staying in a more contemporary accomodation. A great stay in a beautiful part of the world.
