I would really like a refund on my stay let me tell you I don’t know where you got these pics from but It looks nothing like this the pool is so green even if it was hot enough to swim I really would not even let my fish swim in that!! I won’t even go in to the rooms but to say our Tv didn’t even work, The couple we went with Kay Bulter will be complaining in too. We could have stayed at a homeless shelter and had better accommodations. It was the worst place I’ve ever stayed and I’ve done a lot of traveling They don’t even get a 1/4 of a star. I really think we need some kind of compasation or our money back!!!!

When I booked the property, it was listed as a bed and breakfast. Somewhere between then and when we arrived, it changed to no longer being a B&B. That was a prime reason we chose it. The mattress wasn't very good. It was higher on one side, which made it hard to roll over in one direction. It also squeaked with every turn. The place also has hardly any parking. I think it has 5 parking spots. It's in a great location, though.

Far overpriced for what was expected. Pictures on website deceptive. Definitely would not recommend staying here. Not sure who actually checked us in but they claimed they were helping out the individual who was supposed to get us checked in. Apparently they were out running errands. No parking available as promised and had to find street parking a few blocks away. The room was in rough shape with very poor bedding, bathroom and accommodations. The pool was dirty and needed to be cleaned and the jacuzzi adjacent to the pool was empty and looked as though it had not been used for quite some time. Way overpriced for what we received. Only positive is proximity to waterfront where there are plenty of nice restaurants, shops and sights to see. Dali Museum within walking distance was highlight of visit.

Dear guest -- Thank you very much for staying with us. Going by the name on the review, I can't discern the name on the reservation so I'm not sure which dates you stayed or in which room you were, so I can't respond directly to your comments, especially about the promise of parking. We have limited parking on site, as noted online, and do not reserve or promise spots for any guests. I do what I can to procure a spot for as many guests as I can, but we do not have sufficient parking for all guests when we are full. The street parking is plentiful and the neighborhood is safe, so you shouldn't have had a problem finding a nearby spot. The pool situation is as you described and is being addressed, slowly but surely. We're not sure why you found the room to be inadequate but I will personally inspect every one of the rooms and see which ones could be updated. As I stated above, I don't know which room you stayed in so I can't remark upon its condition. We are happy that you liked the location and hope that you will try us again sometime. Thanks again for staying with us.

Avoid this and all other related properties!!

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Fire rude staff, train the others.
I never really write reviews but the staff at this hotel was so incredibly rude I thought it important to share with others to avoid another bitter moment in a vacation. Room was OK but super strange. It had a bathtub literally next to the bed. No shower whatsoever, just a tub with a hose. But hey, can deal with this all. However, the staff was the worst I have ever encountered in all my years of travel. We decided to checkout a day early to visit friends in another area and let the hotel know. Naturally, the rate had to be adjusted since we were not staying the extra night. The staff rudely insisted that changing the fee/refunding was not her problem and literally yelled "FINE, FINE, I DO NOT CARE" on the phone as we tried to sort it out. Not sure when it became OK for someone at a front desk to outright yell at a guest for no reason. I spoke to other members of the staff from the hotel about this (this one actually apologized for the other one) and she mentioned guests repeatedly have a problem with this staff member. Wonder why the hotel has insisted on keeping her at the front desk? Appalling service, stay far away!

Lovely place, nice people, close to everything.

Nice place, close to everything in too-cool d/t St. Pete. A block from the Vinoy! Nice place. Good privacy in the building where we were. Nice people. Tiny but adequate bathroom in the room. All pros--no cons. Well maybe limited parking, but no big deal. Highly recommended.

Pros: Proximity to downtown St Petersberg.
Cons: Almost all, although the public spaces and our room was clean
Location: Walking distance to downtown St Petersberg. Close to the bay, restaurants and museums
To cold at night, unable to regulate AC. Pool and spa water dirty, although it was a self cleaning pool. Lack of hot water for shower after hot day bike riding and needing one before dinner. Lack of parking, had to do the shuffle with other guests or park on street. Should have heeded other reviews, shame on us for hoping these deficiencies were corrected from earlier reviews.
