    Amazing time overall-fantastic atmosphere and staff was great. Breakfast was fabulous. My only negative (and WE LOVE DOGS!) was that a young couple brought their little dog into the dining room area for breakfast, let it out of its cage and fed it food from the table. I understand that the hotel is dog friendly, but it was not a service dog, and inappropriate. The staff didn’t say a word and while the dog was ‘tethered’, it was not appropriate and they should have been asked to take the dog back to the room or elsewhere.

    Took a few days to relax, beach and ride my bike
    The breakfast was great the service was exceptional. The room was clean and comfortable and exactly what I expected; a historic hotel and nothing modern or fancy. The location was perfect for me being so close to the beach, the Pinellas train and Fort Desoto County Park. Many local neighborhood restaurants or just go over the bridge to gulf drive with all wonderful restaurants, bars and shopping on St Pete beach

    Great piece of history
    This was a great stay! Will definitely visit again. Very clean, comfortable... breakfast was delicious, and service was excellent. The only issue was a very excessive amount of chlorine in the pool that irritated our eyes and sinuses for a day or two.

    Highly Recommended!
    I booked a room here last minute for my daughter & I to stay in while we were visiting the Tampa area. I had searched for awhile on the website looking for a place near the water that wouldn't be $$$ & that we felt safe in...this place did not disappoint. The staff was very friendly& helpful. The hotel is well maintained & beautiful. The beds are comfortable. The made to order breakfast is delicious! I look forward to staying here again if ever in the area.
