“Great B&B!!”
Reviewed 12 September 2007

The Inn at the Bay was a great getaway for my husband and I. It's within walking distance to the bay, pier, museums, shopping and great restaurants and bars.

The inn itself is very detail-oriented and tastefully decorated. It's clean, comfy and everything you look for in a bed and breakfast. Breakfast itself was phenomenal...poached egg over crab cake for the first course and banana pancakes with a strawberry champagne sauce for the second. Delicious! The coffee and juice were excellent as was the staff. They keep a refridgerator stacked with soda and bottled water in the rooms.

We were only disappointed to be staying only one night! Definitely a place we will return to if we're ever in the St. Pete/ Clearwater/Tampa area again!

Highly recommend!!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Inn by the Bay and had an enjoyable visit. Nice selection of movies and the bed in our room was incredibly comfortable. At the Inn you are within walking distance to most attractions. The English pub on the corner is very good with a great selection. The gelato place and tea room around the corner are great too. Most area attractions and restaurants have coupons in the coupon books you see everywhere in the area. The breakfasts at the Inn were very enjoyable and delicious.

Our stay was absolutely wonderful. The staff and guests at the Inn made us feel so welcome. We were in the area for a medical appointment, and it was so nice to come back to the Inn and feel at home. The service and food were exceptional. The location was perfect, being a block or two from our appointment. a shopping mall, restaurants, the Pier, and a park.

We had a wonderful time during our stay at the b&b. The hosts Dennis and Jewly were top notch, the breakfasts that were served were bar none fantastic, and the room was very romantic.

The setting that had been so well staged made it very easy to relax during breakfast, at wine and cheese time, and in the evening. The building inside and out was definitely old-world - which made our stay that much more ' romantic '.

Dennis and Jewly ( our hosts ) went above and beyond in making our stay a memorable one. The Inn at the Bay in St Petersburg, FL was awesome, and we will be going back there - no doubt.

Inn at the Bay was wonderful. Kind of like stepping back in time. It had a old New England feel and I felt right at home. The Bed was Super comfy and the tub was to die for. Not to mention Dennis and Julie the owners! I can't wait to go back agian.

  • Liked — The at home feeling and the Bed
  • Disliked — Nothing! It was great.

I have stayed at this B&B twice now and I would go back again. It was extremely restful and relaxing! The beds are the most comfortable beds you will ever rest on! The big whirlpool tub was wonderful! They have a great movie library- from great classics to the newest films. Very polite and friendly staff, they really make you feel at home. It is a very warm and inviting place. The rooms are super cozy. It is a great place to get away and totally relax. Great location too!
