I reserved a room here after reviews I saw online and I was not disappointed!!! Spotless rooms, welcoming owners (I walked into happy hour!!), all you could need to get your morning started for breakfast. Such an inviting atmosphere and several returning guests who we met were so much fun... we are trying to get back for the Red Sox series in September!!

Comfort in a welcoming atmosphere

Pros: Convenient to downtown restaurants and culture with casual walking.
Cons: Letting guests know in advance before booking, given the size of the hotel (20 rooms), that they may have a second floor room and no elevator.
Location: Downtown and walking distance to museums, restaurants and Saturday morning market.
Our stay was better than anticipated....friendly, welcoming, cozy, very accommodating, clean....had all we needed in a nostalgic atmosphere. Owners know the value of taking care of the occupants in a caring atmosphere. Not difficult to make good conversation between other hotel guests of this 20-room "European-style" hotel as well as the owners and staff.

Quaint little hotel near downtown

We went to the Jannus live venue to see a concert and this hotel was perfect walking distance from the venue. My wife love the place. It was as if we were staying at a friend or relatives house. Didn't seem like a hotel at all. Staff was great.

Well-named: America's Best

Pros: Just about everything. But: remember, it's a B&B, not a hotel. Best B&B ever. They posted their 5* Trip Advisor rating proudly, and they deserved i
Cons: Hard to say; I can't remember finding anything coming up short.
Location: 3 blocks to Beach Walk and the restaurants & night life. Walking distance to Dali, Chihuly museums. Perfect location.
Excellent location, friendly, cosmopolitan clientele, superb hosts, great breakfast, afternoon wine and tea party, everything perfect.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Quiet
We have been visiting St. Pete each year for the past 4-5 years and had stayed in B & B's. This stay in this hotel was better than any of the B & B's. Matter of fact, this hotel was like a B & B as they served breakfast each moring. The managers were some of the most helpful and accomodating as any we have experienced. Was truly an enjoyable stay! Room was clean and very nice. Very quiet also.
