Best part is the location
This Inn has a great location downtown which is why we stayed there. However, the bathrooms are very small and if you stay in a room with the clawfoot tub shower, it is extremely difficult to get in and out. The management needs to put in a grab bar or something to prevent falls. The room service was non existent for three days and we were told to leave our key so another could be made up; then we had room service. The front desk isn't staffed after 8 PM and there is no number to call if there is an emergency. The breakfasts were minimal we at out but there are many restaurants near by. So, overall the location is best part. There is room for improvement otherwise.

Great place to stay!!!
Came in for a friends wedding and found this place. Great location and great price. Not sure fancy, but clean. Right in the middle of downtown and can walk to great places to eat, drink and shop. Felt very safe as single female traveling alone.

Poor 2.0
Not worth price.
Horrible rooms. Dirty rugs. In window air conditioning that did not work well. A 4 leg rub to shower in. Folks you had to climb in. How an elderly person could shower in this is a mystery. Dirty rooms.

Vintage gem in St. Pete
A very quaint hotel that is well cared for with a wonderful staff. The rooms are comfortable and clean but the walls are thin. No elevator so if you have discomfort climbing flights of stairs while carrying your own luggage, ask for the first floor.
