This was our second stay and the owners could not have made us more welcome. My husband hates B&Bs but this is the best of both worlds. There is a 'happy hour' every day with a complimentary glass of wine or beer and a surprising number of guests turn up. We ended up having a delightful dinner with a solo woman traveler we met one happy hour.
The rooms are small but comfortable with a fridge in each room. There are no individual coffee makers but coffee is available in the lobby and breakfast is also provided. The hotel is very close to everything in St Petersburg and we were able to walk to our favourite bar on Beach and also to the Dali Museum. Thursday night admission to the Museum of Fine Art is $5 after 5pm which is well worth a visit!
We will definitely stay here next year when we come back to St. Petersburg.

And another wonderful review from a return guest! We appreciate you choosing our inn again and want to thank you for your review. St. Pete truly is a gem, one that is slowly gaining in popularity. Our world class museums and abundance of casual to fine dining options, plus countless other diversions make it a wonderful place to visit. Being within walking distance to all St. Pete has to offer is one of the many great perks one receives by staying with us.

We wish you all the best and Happy Travels!

Sincerely,

Stephanie & Brian Cox

p.s Not only the Museum of Fine Arts, but also the Salvador Dali Museum offer discounted admission on Thursday evenings.

Friends told us about this hotel as being a good place to stay. Conveniently located near Central avenue and downtown,the rooms are a little on the small side, as it is an old building, but the owners are very friendly and try to please. Nice happy hour with wine and beer. Great value for the money

Hello and thank you for your very nice review! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay as much as your friends have. Yes our rooms are on the small side. As you pointed out it is due to the age of the building. Back in the 30s, hotel rooms weren't designed to be built as large as most newly built hotels. As most travelers come to St. Pete for all our amazing city has to offer, not much time is spent in the guest rooms. It makes the small size of our rooms less of an issue.
Once more, thank you for taking the time to write this review, it is truly appreciated.

We wish you all the best!

Sincerely,

Stephanie & Brian Cox

My wife and I along with 3 other family members stayed at this awesome little hotel back in October. I've never had such personal attention and interaction with the owners of a hotel like we did here. You get to have breakfast and happy hour in their lobby with other folks who feel like more family! The owners are quick to open the door for you as you enter from their street side location. Brian & Stephanie have been doing this for a while and know how to make you feel welcome. You go to a city to enjoy the attractions but we did not expect to have this much fun just at our hotel. We will return anytime we are in the area!

Room Tip: Every room is unique in this hotel so you won't be disappointed.

This is my 3rd stay here. I usually stay in the pricey hotels my husband prefers, and B&Bs give me the creeps and/or sinus headaches from my dust allergies, but this place is the best of both worlds. Very clean and comfortable, all the niceties such as a water cooler & sodas in the lobby plus happy hour glass of wine & snacks, antiques but also electronic keyless locks, a feeling of safety and being cared for by extremely nice proprietors but also anonymity if you want it - all that and easy adjacent parking and walking distance to all the main sights of St Petersburg. Can't be beat.

Room Tip: Upper floor is quieter; avoid the church parking lot side if you stay Sunday morning.

This hotel/inn/B&B exceeds their reviews. Brian and Stephanie do an outstanding job of managing this Inn; and even get help from Stephanie's parents (Oma and Opa). At least 3 languages are spoken here. The location is within walking distance of everything. Parking is free in their lot. Continental breakfast is filling and a good start to your day; happy hours are wine/beer/ snacks and a comfortable way to wind up a late afternoon. We get a main floor room that is exactly what we want (King size bed, TV, reading lamp by bed). They have a full rack of brochures to review and are extremely good at providing directions and helpful hints. I will point out that, if you are looking for 'suites' such as king sized multiple rooms and bathrooms, you might want to spend the extra couple of hundred dollars elsewhere. With all the above, Brian and Stephanie add to the experience.

Room Tip: We prefer a ground floor room because we are bringing luggage. Also, it is a short walk to the lobby area. If stairs are a problem (as in hauling luggage), then Brian is always willing to help. Although the ground floor rooms are not particularly noisy, I would guess it could be more quiet upstairs.
