Long story short, Brian is the man. He was very very accomidating, he helped us with directions, helped us with our room and we even had our car die and he said he would wait for AAA for us while we went and ate.

The guy was so damn nice I wanted to hug him, I think he would of played cards with us if we asked him to.

He had a happy hour going durring the day to watch football with free drinks/snacks and he even stayed to hang out with the guests.

I have never been treated so well at a hotel, this guy is almost like another friend on a trip. I cannot speak highly enough about Brian the owner and his hot german wife (sorry Brian).

The owners of the lovely hotel really do care to make the stay a pleasant one for their guests. The rooms are clean and charming and the owners are nice and helpful. They really know their city and can give great advise on where to go for fun or great food. The famous St. Pete pier, the waterfront, and great shopping are also near by.
I recommend this hotel to anyone who needs a place to stay in this area.

We stayed here before in 2006 for over a week when we were in town to get married on and they were absolutely lovely then. We had such a brilliant time staying with them that we were thrilled when they told us they could offer us the same room we had for our honeymoon! They were such friendly hosts that we we felt like we were part of the family and rarely wanted to leave. They had loads of great ideas on places to visit and things to see that we were always busy! And being able to come back in the evening and share a glass of wine with them was a perfect way to kick off the night. We'll definitely be staying again and look forward to many repeat visits.

Brian and Stephanie were wonderful hosts! They made us feel right at home and went the extra mile in service. The rooms were a little small, but were adequate and quiet. The breakfast and evening snacks were greatly appreciated. The location is great, we walked around town some and ate at several restaurants nearby. We will definitely stay there again with our next visit.

We stayed at this Inn for one night in June 2008 for a wedding at the Vinoy. Even though we are local to the area, St. Pete is always a great place for a short getaway. We found the Inn very charming and the innkeepers are extremely friendly and very helpful. The evening wine & beer with snacks in an extra benefit and the breakfast was continental help yourself and had plenty of choices. We loved how our room was decorated... very antique looking. There was even a mini fridge in the room. The only downside was the air conditioner was a window unit and those are always louder and the bed was not super comfortable. The Inn is within walking distance to everything in downtown St. Pete. We would definitely stay here again. This is a less expensive place to stay in St. Pete but offers great value and extras.

Stephani and Brian, the managers, were fantastic! Since the hotel was really like an inn, there were not as many rooms as a normal hotel, which made the experience more personable. They both had a great sense of humor and did a great job of treating you like family. They helped us with restaurants, getting taxis and directions. They even helped us after we had already checked out! I would definitely recommend this inn, and I plan to return again.

Cozy and friendly. Stephanie and Brian are excellent hosts that make you feel comfortable as soon as you walk through the door. The rooms are clean and cozy. No run-of-the mill hotel furniture. Each room is different and feels like home. Close to good dining and bars. We parked our car when we arrived and never used it until we left. Everything is within walking distance. We will be back again.
