Just about perfect
Location is amazing. Very pleased they had parking. The pool area and rooms were stellar. The only very minor issue that needed to be updated was the mattress - a bit sunken down (especially on one side) but otherwise our stay was perfect. Would stay again

The Watergarden Inn was great. We especially liked the location. It was so convenient to downtown and the fun stuff along the water.

Cozy inn with a perfect location
We live less than an hour from St. Petersburg, and frequently go there for dinner or a show. This year, we decided to take our Spring Vacation there. My wife chose The Watergarden because of location and the homey B&B ambience. That is exactly what we got. The property has the best location in town. You can quickly walk to the Sundial, Mahaffey and infinite dining choices. Best of all, Florida's best gelato shop is two minutes away. Julia was helpful and treated us like family. The breakfast was good and plentiful. The pool and patio are a particular delight--like having your own estate in the middle of the city. Finally, my wife loved it and she is hard to please.

The owners Pete & Julie were excellent hosts. Very accommodating on helping us navigate St. Petersburg and especially helping us with accommodations.
