The inn is convenient to the downtown and museums however it is in need of a thorough airing, as well as some updating and a few easy to fix touches would help to make it worth the price and a more pleasant place to vacation. Our room was tiny and the strong moldy/ musty smell was overpowering. The window opened... More

Bedroom: The bed's mattress is old. It's lumpy and you could feel the spring. When your partner moves, the whole bed squeaks and th The size is small. With our luggages, a lounge chair, a dressing table and a desk, there is hardly any room to move. Bathroom: The sink is too big. Great for hand washing though. No where... More

We had a great stay at this cozy hotel! Stephanie and Brian are wonderful hosts. Loved the front sitting room. Felt like you were in a private home and not a commercial hotel. We would stay there again when in St. Pete!

Cute place, older but updated, breakfast and social drinks included, parking not the best but they do give you a free voucher to park in the parking garage across the street. We stayed in room 30, had a refrig, a/c, queen, small but clean which is important, and nit expensive. I liked it fr the money, and friendly staff.

If you are looking for a place with some personality this is it. The building and the owners both have plenty of personality. The price is tough to beat, and the location is awesome - close enough to walk to the water, super close to Jannus Live and all the night life.
