What a find! The Watergarden is the perfect destination in St Petersburg for those looking to avoid the big box hotels and still be were the downtown activities are. Sitting in your comfortable room, you'd never know that just outside is beautiful Bay Drive and all the great restaurants and museums. The Inn has all the comforts you could ask...

girl's weekend in St. Pete was all the better staying at Watergarden Inn at the Bay. Wilder and Bill are friendly, engaging and make a great breakfast! The location allows nice walks to major downtown locations as well as some restful afternoons poolside. We're ready to go back.

Everything about this Bed & Breakfast in St. Pete is heavenly- from the sweet and attentive owners, who served healthy and yummy breakfasts (and delish cappuccinos!) to the close proximity to the bay (1 block) and 1 block to restaurants and shops to the serene and welcoming in ground, heated POOL to the beautiful home and rooms! We thoroughly enjoyed...

You simply could not find a more convenient place to stay in St. Pete, and that is the best reason to stay here. Museums, Tampa Bay, shopping, movies, are within easy walking distance. Other reviews have listed many positive things about the property, and we agree. Thus the five star rating. On the other hand, we would not characterize the...

We stayed at the Watergarden Inn at the Bay for 4 nights in Feb 2015 and I can't recommend it highly enough. Wilder & Bill are perfect hosts, who are lovely people and both friendly and helpful. They even emailed us details of good local restaurants for Valentines night several days in advance as they knew that they get booked...

YEARS ago I walked past this b&b, wrote down the name on a sticky, and kept it. Was so happy it's still around and I spent a night over valentine's day. The location is the best for the money. The neighborhood is safe and quiet. Parking very comfortable. The host could not have been kinder. The room was immaculate, couldn't...

The hotel is very conveniently located, but on a quiet street (see note below about noise). They have a private parking lot, the hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable and the room was absolutely spotless. Plus, free wi-fi and a very nice breakfast. We'd definitely return if in St. Pete again. Note about noise: There's construction going on next door...

Stayed 6 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Bill and Wilder were friendly, always accommodating and all around superb hosts. The location was within easy walking distance to all of the attractions, trolley service and great restaurants.

I had to be in St. Pete for business and was going to stay in the big brand hotel a few blocks away from this B&B, but it didn't have a room available one of the nights I was in town. I'm thankful that it was booked! So I took a chance and ended up staying in this B&B instead,...

We had a wonderful experience at the Watergarden Inn. We always like to stay at a local place to get a feel for the area and this did not disappoint. The hosts were wonderful. Bill went out of his way and made us a much needed cappuccino when we arrived. The Inn is very conveniently located close to shopping, dining...
