This B&B is well managed. Our room was clean and well decorated. The breakfast spread was terrific. The hospitality was warm and the air conditioning was cold. Free parking was a definite plus that you could easily overlook when choosing where to stay in St. Pete. Location was close to all major attractions. Our room overlooked the street which was a minor nuisance when the traffic came through.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the street are quieter.

We have stayed at the Watergarden Inn at the Bay at least once a year for the last ten years. Our recent four day stay during the St. Pete Grand Prix served to remind us why we love this place so much. From the minute we check in, we feel like we are in a wonderful, welcoming, comfortable home. Bill and Wilder make us feel like they are happy to see us arrive and sad to see us leave. Their graciousness and care for their guests is second to none. We have always enjoyed the location, the beautifully appointed bedrooms, the lovely surroundings - but it is the "little touches" that really make the stay special - the yummy gourmet items at breakfast (we stopped at Fresh Market on the way home for the delicious fresh-made honey peanut butter), the always available k-cup coffees, teas and hot chocolate, and Bill's wonderful sense of humor! We truly feel like the Watergarden Inn at the Bay is our "second home". Thank you Bill and Wilder!

What a perfect stay in downtown St. Pete! The Watergarden Inn is well-kept and most welcoming with amicable hosts Wilder and Bill, who take pride in their bed and breakfast and it's returning guests. Rooms are well furnished and comfortable. The lush gardens complete with swimming pool are a relaxing spot for morning coffee or sipping wine, both of which we enjoyed. Breakfast is an tasty assortment of fresh berries, cereals, yogurt, pastries, juices, and a great selection of coffee/teas, including freshly brewed cappuccino. Best of all is the location! A safe, easy walk to the Dali and Chihuly museums, the Vanoy, and the vibrant bay front, which offers excellent restaurants and trendy shops. The downtown trolly (50 cents) is a fun way to learn the history of the buildings as you ride the loop. It also stops at the Dali Museum. We loved our stay at the Watergarden Inn and exploring the 'new' St. Pete. Highly recommended!

I didn't have much time to enjoy this wonderful B & B as I was attending a wedding and was in and out. My room was comfortable, beautiful and very relaxing. The owners were extremely pleasant and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend the Watergarden Inn - it is a beautiful, relaxing place to enjoy while visiting St. Petersburg. I hope I have the chance to visit again!

I enjoyed three lovely days in downtown St Pete. The Inn was charming and run by wonderful people. Although not warm enough to swim, it has a lovely pool and gardens. One block from the bay and downtown. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Pelican room. A great king size bed. Sunshine in the afternoon in case you are a late sleeper.
