Beach Drive Inn Bed and Breakfast
Reviewed July 6, 2011

We visited Beach Drive Inn Bed and Breakfast in June on vacation. It was a nice and quiet stay. The innkeeper (Roland) and his helper (Jana) were able to answer all of our questions and give recommendations.

The Key West room is fairly large and has a separate sitting room which is a nice feature.

Also, there is free parking on the side of the house which makes your life even easier.

What a wonderful way to spend a long weekend in St. Petersburg. Roland and his assistant Jenna were terrific and the Inn is just beautiful. We loved it and will be back!

The Beach Drive Inn is the best B&B we have stayed in the State of Florida! We travel a lot with friends and family, and the staff and owners make you feel right at home! The food is great, the rooms are wonderful! We loved our stay, and the inn keeper was fantastic. The location is within walking distance to several shops, museums, and resturants. They are even animal friendly and show great compasion to all of their guests!
WE WILL BE BACK!

My husband and I enjoyed our long weekend at The Beach Drive Inn B&B very much. We stayed in the Key West Suite and could not have been more pleased. It was very spacious and the bed was dreamy! Roland and Heather were wonderful hosts, serving a delicious breakfast each morning. The inn is beautiful and very charming. We were in close proximity to great restaurants, shopping and the waterfront. We especially loved the front porch, where we would enjoy a great cup of coffee and the homemade cookies provided in the afternoons. Thank you Roland and Heather for a fantastic stay in your beautiful Inn. We hope to return one day!!

My husband and I stayed for the weekend in the Beach Drive Inn's Key West Room. We were warmly greeted by Debbie, the housekeeper, upon arrival, and offered homemade cookies, iced tea, or lemonade. She showed us up to our suite, and asked if we had any food allergies. She told us what she would serve as the main dish for breakfast the next morning (it was a delicious sausage and egg casserole, fresh fruit salad with fresh raspberries, biscuits, and other items - whole fruit, yogurts, bagels, fresh-squeezed orange juice). Roland and Heather are the owners, but we did not get to meet Heather, as she was out of town. We met her mother instead, who also welcomed us, and asked if she could help us decide on a restaurant for dinner that evening. We highly recommend a relatively new resaturnt almost next door to the Inn: "400 Beach Drive". Debbie gave us beach towels, a beach bag, and sunscreen to use on Saturday, and made a towel elephant that greeted us when we got back to our suite after spending the day at Ft. Desosto Beach. Sunday morning's main dish for breakfast was a ham and cheese quiche, with another fresh fruit salad, with blueberries. The Key West suite is very comfortable, with a separate sitting room overlooking Beach Drive and the Vinoy resort across the street. The sitting room has a TV, small refrigerator, and a wet bar, as well as a small table with two chairs, and a loveseat. There is a nice dressing table and an antique chest of drawers, as well. You can borrow movies to watch in your room. There is a jacuzzi tub and shower combination with stained glass windows opposite the bed. Be prepared for a somewhat tight fit in the room housing the commode and small sink. There are two very friendly dogs that live in the owners' quarters, but came out to visit in the morning. Roland was warm and hospitable, and very generously allowed us to leave our rental car parked in his parking area for a couple of hours after we checked out on Sunday, as we wanted to take the trolley to The Pier. The trolley stop for the Downtown Looper trolley is a short walk across the street to the front of the Vinoy Resort. Overall, this B&B is excellent - the best B&B stay we have ever had.
