“Fabulous value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2012

We took a girl's trip to St. Pete beach and were fortunate enough to stay at Bon Aire, which I highly recommend.
The rooms are basic but have all the essentials: comfy beds, good A/C, and the best thing is the location! Wow! This hotel is right on the gorgeous beach, and very close to several restaurants.
Check in was a breeze, and the service was friendly and prompt. We felt very safe in this hotel.
Great price, great service, great location. If you like a laid back trip, like to walk to restaurants, and you are on a budget, this hotel is the perfect choice. We are already planning another trip back this fall.

This family run hotel is the perfect place to relax and not spend resort type money. Located right on the beach it is the perfect location. Sandbar Bill's tiki bar is one of the best. From the best rumrunners on the beach to incredrible hamburges. The two pools are great but being within steps of the beach is wonderul.

My husband & I just returned from this resort. We only stayed 1 night but needed a break from Disney! We arrived early & were given permission to use the facilites which was wonderful. Our Room we wanted wasn't going to be available so they graciously put us in a apt facing the ocean. The room was freshly remodeled & just perfect with a full kitchen. The Girls at the Front Desk are true gems as well as the girls at thier bar. The food is wonderful by the way! It is in a perfect location close to all of your needs. My favorite part about this resort was it has a warm family feel. VERY safe & all who are staying are the same...nice ...nice...nice... This is truelly a hidden Gem!

The hotel and grounds are very nice. The ladies behind the counter are less than pleasant. It was like they were doing me a favor by letting my family stay there.

Had to come back 6 months after our first visit. This place is so awesome, we've established "our" place to go on the beach to be sure!

This is the old Florida, and very casual and friendly, the people that stay here are also friendly. It's just that kind of place!

We will most certainly be back!

I grew up in Florida and finding places that are steeped in the laid-back no shoes kind of attitude is hard to find. I wanted to find a place for my daughter (8 month old), mother, and I over Easter Weekend and my friends recommended the Bon Aire. They had space available and it was totally affordable for the family.

We booked an efficiency, not facing the ocean, but I don't care...your never in the room anyways. The room was exceptionally clean, flat screen, and they provided a crib for us! Thank you.

We were about 8 hotels down from the Don Cesar and if your into 'fancy pants' places don't stay at the Bon Aire. People here are what I like to call 'FLORIDA' folks. Laid back, easy going, no shirt, no shoes kind of place. It's great for families and I found the whole experience as easy as we needed.

The beach is beautiful, the sunsets divine, and it's just an easy breezy kind of place to stay. The saltwater pools are small but great if you have kids and they are HEATED...which was nice for my daughter.

We had a GREAT time.

Bonus: You can cook your own food on the grills outside and they are super casual about visitors (my brother parked in the hotel visitor lot). Perfect if your looking for easy, casual, clean, and what I like to call above average for a moderate place to stay.

Would def. stay at again!

didn't get the room we requested but had a great stay non the less. great location, friendly staff. only problem we encountered was at the beach bar. children elbowing up to the bar to order food between bar customers. a waitress or order section line would make much better

Room Tip: dluxe waterfron for a large party
