We stayed one night. Checked in late. Friendly staff. Small but clean room with no fridge. The bathroom was very small not enough space. Air exhaust vent was very very laud. Rust on the floor. The bathroom needs upgrading. We liked the ambiance of the old hotel, but felt it needed an upgrade. There was a big parking lot next...

I had to stay here because of a lack of rooms due to the NCAA tournament in Tampa. It's a quaint old hotel with a very neat lobby, and is much like a bed and breakfast. It's well situated in the downtown area, where you can walk to most everything. I liked the place, but felt a little unsure and...

A little hotel very well situated to go walking every where. The staff was really nice. The breakfast was ok with bread, coffee, fruit and cereals. The parking is 10$ a day. The room was small but confortable.

My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary. The location was great, close to everything. The staff was very pleasant! The rooms were fairly clean, but dated. Our main complaint was the bathroom. It's was very small and uncomfortable and the shower curtain was just a piece of vinyl that allowed water to spray everywhere. I don't think...

I like this place. It is basic, but has some old time charm. Easy walking to the Marina and many great restaurants and bars. Little parking available and cost is $10 per day but there is a parking garage around the block for the same rate. Staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean.

The Cordova Inn is a quaint little, old hotel. The room is pretty basic, but comfortable and was clean. There was a continental breakfast served of light bites, yogurt, muffins, cereals, boiled eggs, juice and coffee. The staff were pleasant enough, though no one was around when we had to turn in our key at the end of the stay....

My boyfriend and I spent a Saturday night here as a mini-weekend staycation to experience St Pete. The location is great, walking distance to many of the highlights in downtown St Pete. The room was average and sparse, but as expected for the $100/night we paid. There was no headboard, nightstands and the bathroom was a bit dated. The windows...

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. First, I'd like to start off by saying that we are sorry for the issue with your credit card. However when you keyed your credit card number on our website you keyed the last 4 numbers incorrectly. When the front desk agent ran the transaction with the card number you...

This cute little older boutique hotel was just what we ordered for the price. It was in walking distance from Beach Street and had a nice little cold breakfast buffet. I didn't give it 4 stars cause I think they should tell you that there is no elevator. My sister had a hard time getting up the steps. Bed was...

Thank you Heidi C, We are so glad you stayed with us. We do apologize there is no elevator in the Inn. The property is almost 100 years old and to keep with historical accuracy we have not added an elevator to the property. We can however accommodate moving you to a ground floor unit if available upon request. We...
