We stayed in the Veranda Suite which turned out to be a perfect choice for 3 women traveling together. Loved the tropical soft colors and decor and spacious rooms with high ceiling, and the veranda offered a lovely place to relax with a drink or visit. Having a 'kitchenette' area and table was perfect for morning coffee (& leftovers) --...

This B&B is well managed. Our room was clean and well decorated. The breakfast spread was terrific. The hospitality was warm and the air conditioning was cold. Free parking was a definite plus that you could easily overlook when choosing where to stay in St. Pete. Location was close to all major attractions. Our room overlooked the street which was...

We have stayed at the Watergarden Inn at the Bay at least once a year for the last ten years. Our recent four day stay during the St. Pete Grand Prix served to remind us why we love this place so much. From the minute we check in, we feel like we are in a wonderful, welcoming, comfortable home. Bill...

What a perfect stay in downtown St. Pete! The Watergarden Inn is well-kept and most welcoming with amicable hosts Wilder and Bill, who take pride in their bed and breakfast and it's returning guests. Rooms are well furnished and comfortable. The lush gardens complete with swimming pool are a relaxing spot for morning coffee or sipping wine, both of which...

I didn't have much time to enjoy this wonderful B & B as I was attending a wedding and was in and out. My room was comfortable, beautiful and very relaxing. The owners were extremely pleasant and very accommodating. I would definitely recommend the Watergarden Inn - it is a beautiful, relaxing place to enjoy while visiting St. Petersburg. I...

I enjoyed three lovely days in downtown St Pete. The Inn was charming and run by wonderful people. Although not warm enough to swim, it has a lovely pool and gardens. One block from the bay and downtown. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Stayed here for a week in February. The owners are very friendly and make you feel at home. A nice, basic continental breakfast is served every morning. The new in-ground pool is nice and relaxing. A couple blocks to the downtown area makes this B & B a great location. Bill and WIlder are great hosts.

My husband and I have stayed in numerous B&B inns through the years and Watergarden Inn at the Bay is by far one of the nicest we have encountered. They are security conscious and keep the doors locked at all times. Once you check in, you are given an access code for entering the premises thereafter. Wilder and Bill are...

This B&B was all I needed for a perfect vacation stay in downtown St. Petersburg. Perfect location if you want to be downtown - I did plenty of walking the City here, along the coastline. An easy 20-25 driving minutes to the Gulf Beaches, and everyday I got to choose a different Beach. Bill and Wilder were the best hosts...
