“Longing to return to Bon Aire Resort!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Went to Bon Aire with my wife and kids for a quick beach getaway. We stayed in a Deluxe Efficiency which had two queen beds, a kitchenette, and a nice bathroom. The room was very nice, and thankfully the air conditioner worked great as it was HOT! :) The motel seemed to be at full capacity (normal for summer months, from what I have been told) but it didn't detract from our stay. This is not an upscale place by any means, but it is AWESOME if you're looking for a laid back place to stay at the beach. There are two decent sized pools and beach access is just steps away! The beach was nice (powdery white sand) and the sunsets are even nicer! We had dinner from Sandbar Bill's as we waited for the sunset by the pool. The burgers are amazing!!! The staff was extremely polite and things went efficiently well when checking in/out. The only regret is that we didn't have more time. One night wasn't long enough! Book early... this place fills up fast and apparently has regulars that stay every year for a week at at time! I can see why... This place is a well preserved treasure from a different time!

We have been coming for so long that the ones running it now were just kids and now they have kids working. The Bon Aire never let's us down in the cleanliness and great personal care the staff takes. Sunsets are great. Bar food is great and relaxation is the best.

Yaah! An oldie but a goodie...the Bon Aire on St Pete Beach. Been there many times in my past, from high school senior parties in 1968, to family get togethers in the 90's, to relaxation days most recently. This place offers large apartment like rooms with separate bedroom from the living quarters. The staff are friendly and helpful. There are two large guest pools, along with shuffle board and beach bar. Beach front is about 100 yards away but it's all sand between this resort and the water, which is perfect for beach volleyball, football or frizbee. You're about 3/8 mile from the famous Don Cezar Hotel (big & pink) but expect anything less than expensive there. Go! You'll enjoy it.

Room Tip: try to get one of front beach rooms, on the northside (bottom is best but 2nd floor is fine as well)

Awesome little "hidden treasure"! While parking is regulated to one vehicle, the room was great - clean and a/c was cold. Sandbar Bill's bar serves a great "Hobo Club", reasonably price and HUGE portion for two of us.

Check in and out was speedy - all the staff encountered were pleasant and accommodating.

Planning on returning later in this fall.

peaceful & tranquil!!! just got back from our stay and we loved it! we had a semi efficient room with a fridge,microwave & stove. rooms were clean, comfortable & had cold a/c! the staff were friendly and greeted us with smiles everyday. loved the tropical landscaping and views. great place to turn off the phones & get away from the rat race! grab a cold drink from the bar and unwind!!! we visit the area every other year, i think we found our spot. we'll be back!

Room Tip: not only do you have the beach but you also have 2 heated pools.

You won't find a nicer resort at such an affordable price located right on the beach. You can reserve your choice of room styles by the day(s) or week(s) but be sure to make your reservations well in advance to ensure accommodations are available. The Bon Aire is a 2 story resort with views of the ocean from most balconies and front patios. A welcome relief from the high rise hotels/resorts with their elevators and long hallways. Our efficiency was roomy, neat, clean, quiet, comfortable and well furnished with daily attention from the Bon Aire staff if you so choose. We opted not to take advantage of this complimentary service. The beds were probably the most comfortable we've experienced anywhere. The large shower had more than ample water pressure. That was a welcome surprise because other hotels we've visited desperately lack in that area. The resort is immaculately clean throughout with 2 full sized pools, shuffle boards, and other games. Each room is only a few steps from the beach and the Gulf. There are several chairs and tables set up on the patios overlooking the beach and Gulf. Sandbar Bills is a very popular fully stocked "watering hole" on the property with a menu filled with delicious dishes guaranteed to satisfy anyone's appetite. We especially liked the dressed cheeseburger and the chopped salad with shrimp and/or grilled chicken. But be prepared to have more food than you can eat whatever meal you choose. The Bon-Aire staff couldn’t have been friendlier. Superb job! The resort is conveniently located directly across the boulevard from a major chain drug store and a short 2-3 block walk to a super market and strip mall. We had an exceptionally nice time during our Sunday - Thursday stay. We’ll definitely return to the Bon-Aire. We highly recommend the Bon-Aire. They get 5 stars across the board from us.

Room Tip: Check out the resort map on Bon Aire's website to choose your room style. You may prefer a 1st...

Returned to Bon Aire Resort Motel for a 2nd year in a row. Still the same friendly staff! Room was great! Room was clean. Right on the Gulf of Mexico, Sunsets are amazing! Looking forward to next year.
