“Great Value”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

Historic Inn updated; lobby is cozy and atmosphere is friendly. Nice rooms with fridge, wifi, breakfast, and Happy Hour wine. Personal touch with friendly owners. Good location and reasonable pricing. A really great value in a downtown hotel.

The first thing this hotel's owners tell you is "The rooms are small." They're right. But those rooms are also super-clean and comfortable, and the facility is run with pride and friendly personal service. We were in St. Pete to attend a Tampa Bay Rays game. The next morning, we had a (complimentary) breakfast with fans from both teams, and the hotel's young owners joined us for a fun conversation about the game. We weren't there at cocktail time, but they also offer guests a free glass of beer or wine to start cocktail hour. It's not fancy, but this hotel is a unique facility for people looking for a clean, inexpensive place to call home in the nicest section of St. Petersburg.

Room Tip: There are two floors and no elevator. If you have mobility issues, you might want to ask for the gr...

Hello and thank you for your review of our inn! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your recent stay with us. Yes, our rooms are small, and we will always be honest about this. But like you said, we believe we make up for it with wonderful service, clean and cozy rooms and a boat load of great atmosphere! Hopefully we will get to welcome you back next season or even sooner, as St. Petersburg has many great events happening over the fall and winter, too.

Wishing you all the best!

Sincerely,

Stephanie & Brian Cox

Very European feel, friendly environment, clean and comfortable. Staying again for another visit. We love all these things, better then swank and impersonal. Keep up the good work. They offered a nice continental breakfast and in the evening wine, but unfortunately we were always out during their "happy hour". Room had small refrigerator that was helpful.

Room Tip: If you are older and have difficulty with stairs, request 1st floor. Close to everything.

This affordable hotel is located three blocks off of Beach Drive and is within easy walking distance of good restaurants, shopping, and museums. If you don't want to the walk, for 50 cents the Downtown Looper trolley bus stops right across the street and makes stops near most of the attractions in downtown St. Petersburg. The rooms are simply furnished, clean, and comfortable. As noted by others the owners are very friendly and helpful. While the hotel is far from luxurious, I have no problem recommending it for those who are just looking for a nice place to stay.

The rooms are small, but well kept. Has much more of a bed and breakfast feel to it. Owners were super helpful and friendly. You could tell that they really care about the inn and their guests. Location is awesome- only three blocks from the modern art museum and other down town attractions. I really think this is hard to beat for the price, will stay again next time I'm in St. Petersburg.

Just returned from spending 3 nights. Never took the car out of the lot - walked everywhere throughout downtown St. Pete. Easy 5 block walk to free shuttle to Tropicana Field. More like a bed and breakfast than a hotel. All the guests interacted well during complimentary continental breakfast buffet and evening happy hour. It was quiet, clean, and we will return. Ask for a downstairs room if you need an elevator. Worldwide clientele - met a lovely couple from The Netherlands. Perfect spot for out of town guests coming for baseball. We attended 3 Rays games. Only thing Brian and Stephany could have done to make our stay better was to have ensured the Rays would beat the Rangers. The visiting Rangers fans were friendly too.

Hello there and sunny greetings from St. Pete!
Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our inn so much. Positive feedback like yours, confirms to us that we are doing things right and that all the hard work we put into our inn is worth it in the end.
Unfortunately we have no say in the outcomes of the games, and if we would, I doubt my husband would let me do anything but make our Rays win - guest satisfaction or not, lol.
We wish you all the best and happy travels in the future.

Sincerely,

Stephanie & Brian

Cute, quaint, reasonable hotel - super clean and nice owners. Only here for one night last Friday but well situated - thanks for letting us leave our car there for the day while we did the 'Dali' museum etc.
We will be back next time we are in St. Pete.
