Our experience echoes that of other reviewers: this is an old property, with certain quirks and limitations, but the location is perfect, the price more than fair, and the owners absolutely charming and helpful. My daughter and I spent four nights in St. Petersburg apartment shopping and it was wonderful to come "home" every day to a warm, personal welcome...

It is clean and the location is perfect. Owners are very helpful and we felt safe. IF I were the owners I probably would spend the money and hire a professional painting crew just to paint the interior, it would really help in making overall impression better without spoiling the quaintness or antique feel. We would stay here again without...

Standalone building in the middle of St Petes gave us a great two night stay while we went to see our first Baseball Game. Rooms are basic but clean the Host Brian was really welcoming we enjoyed our stay here. Would recommend.

Everything is in order, the owners have the answer to every question you can think of. There is a notebook with the menus of all the nearby restaurants.

We came to St Petersburg to see the Dali museum, concert at the Palladium and to watch a baseball game at Tropicana Field. Museum and Palladium are walking distance.

We stayed at this inn when we went to Tropicana Field to see a baseball game. As we walked into the door we felt a warm welcome right away.
