“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

This is our second time staying here. We absolutely love the location and atmosphere. We were able to borrow bicycles and beach chairs. They had a washer and dryer right outside of the deck that was easy and accessible. Very easy access to downtown shops and restaurants. A quick walk to the beach made it very convenient. The staff was great as usual. The rooms are spotless. Would highly recommend this little inn. Perfect family location or a romantic getaway!! Look forward to coming back!

This is a very niche hotel in St. Pete's beach. Starting from about 2000 my family was able to stay in this hotel. Usually we would stay for a long weekend. However, starting from a couple of years ago the Inn requires you to book at least four nights if you plan to stay over the weekend. Last year I tried to book the room in the hotel. The room was available but I could not stay for 4 nights. For somebody who is working full time it is not that easy.
When economic situation in Fl was not that good the Inn was flexible but now when more people travel to Fl the in's policy became unfriendly to potential customers. I do understand that the major goal of this establishment is to make money but I strongly believe that min 4 night stay requirement is wrong.

Room Tip: The Inn requires you to book at least four nights if you plan to stay over the weekend.

SabalPalmsInn, Owner at Sabal Palms Inn, responded to this review, 12 July 2014
Thank you for your review and for letting us know how much you've enjoyed our property over the years. We appreciate the fact that you ranked us four out of five stars in all categories, however, you gave us an overall ranking of two stars just because our hotel is so popular that you've been unable to book a room? Most of our guests realize that it is reasonable to have minimum stay requirements especially over the holiday weekend which is when you were attempting to book a one night stay. We do set several rooms aside that do not have minimum stay requirements however those were not available when you contacted us. In the future you should ask to be added to our wait list as we do give first priority to repeat guests in appreciation for their loyalty. Feel free to contact our manager Eddie directly and he will be happy to do his best to accommodate your next stay and hopefully you will want to correct that overall ranking based on your fabulous stay with us!

Not real fancy but makes up for that in cleanliness and the ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL staff. I have also stayed at their other property, the Coconut, which is equally awesome. Eddie and Judith take great care of the property and their guests. AC works beautifully and the place is cool and quiet.

You can borrow the bikes and beach chairs and the pool is tiny but cute. I met lots of great folks here. Will always come back to Sabal Palms or the Coconut! Thanks Eddie and Judith.

Room Tip: I like the bottom floor, it's very cool, a lot like being in a cave, which is okay with me.

Another lovely stay at Sabal Palms. This time we had room #10 as we wanted a budget room for the first week in order to afford a week in the Havana Inn to follow (see other review). #10 is a basement room underneath #1 but has a few windows overlooking the decking and eating area near the office.

As usual the wonderful Judith and her staff looked after us from day 1 and nothing was too much trouble. We love Pass-a-Grille and next year will be our 20th visit and we've always stayed at Sabal Palms. Long may it continue.

We used the free bicycles, beach chairs and also the grill when we weren't eating out (usually at the The Wharf Restaurant just down the road).

Thoroughly recommended for a simple holiday by the beach.

I have stayed at alot of different places around St. Pete, and Sabal Palms is now my number-one favorite. Judy kept the room spotless and was so friendly and courteous. The location is perfect. Quiet, peaceful, steps from the beach. I would strongly recommend this place to anyone. Will most definitely return next year!

Room Tip: Unit 4 has a nice view of the beach.
