Bill and Wilder- You've created an excellent experience for travelers! Located in the heart of St Pete, this hotel is a hidden gem amongst the hustle and bustle of city life. Check in was easy-peasy! We got a lovely tour of the grounds, the pool, and shown to our room. The room itself was cozy, with a magnificent whirlpool tub...

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and it was such a lovely experience that we have decided to look to stay in a B&B on all of our trips. The owners were out of town and their innkeeper, Diane, was a wonderful hostess. We had no negative issues, we loved using the bikes to get around...

We recently spent a week at this lovely bed and breakfast near the waterfront in St Petersburg. The large 1920s home has been beautifully renovated with modern baths with a huge whirlpool. We had a large room with feather bed top, antiques and of course a large flatscreen TV. Unlike many B&Bs the Watergarden has a new and beautifully landscaped...

We stayed four days at this tranquil and lovely B&B while house hunting in St. Petersburg. Wilder & Bill were the perfect hosts from the moment we arrived, engaging us in conversation and offering information about the area. The Inn is beautifully decorated and is centrally located within walking distance to Beach Drive and the Ale & Witch and Wine...

What is that saying about real estate? Location, location…and…okay, I eliminated the third one; more about that later. I know the downtown St. Petersburg area very well, and, for the most part, the Watergarden Inn is well situated for most activities in this “walking” town. Just one block off of Beach Drive and North Straub Park, 2 ½ blocks from...
