“Great Place to Stay in St. Pete!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

We stayed the last few days of December 2011 and loved everything about this place. Though parking is on the street, there's plenty of space and you can walk to the downtown area in just a couple of minutes. We never used the car! Nice neighborhood, lovely home (1912), and the innkeeper, Ed, was the nicest host. He was also a super chef for our morning breakfasts! Room was the Perry Snell and very comfortable. Plan to come back with my husband soon! This trip had been with our foreign exchange student from Spain (16 years old) and she enjoyed talking with Ed and the other guests. St. Pete is wonderful!!

Room Tip: Perry Snell comfortable for two. Suites are available.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

We arrived late on Friday evening and had the door code beforehand. The Inn was very quiet that evening. We didn't even think that there were any other folks lodging there.

Saturday morning, we meet the InnKeeper (Ed) who gave us a history on the house/neighborhood and we got a full (very yummy) breakfast. Several other couples joined us as well. We got to meet some interesting people.

We actually lodged in St Petersburg but our events Sat/Sun took us to Tampa. We like to stay on the outskirts and often select B&B's as our lodging choice.

Saturday evening there was some road noise outside our window but nothing really that would have prevented us for getting a good nights rest. Just a party or event of some sort down the street. Nothing the B&B could have done about that.

Sunday morning, another heartly breakfast and smooth checkout.

All in all - nice B&B. Specific to our room (Perry Snell) the bed was comfortable and the quality of the sheets/bedding was amazing. The pillows were too fluffy for our liking but that's my only compliant and really each customer I'm sure has their 'favorite' type of pillow. The room was large enough for our 2 night stay. Room was very clean. The bathroom had everyone we needed. I enjoyed the whirpool tub although the jets were in the 'corners' which was a little odd and not in the best spot for a nice massage. Once again, my only complaint about the bathroom and its very minor.

The house itself was getting decorated for the holidays and looked very charming. Plenty of great magazines and books to help us unwind. Landscaping around the property was very tropical and well maintained. Neighborhood seemed very safe. Parking out front was limited during this weekend due to the events in the Neighborhood but the owner quickly provided us an alley spot behind the house which was very much appreciated since I have a brand new car.

Wonderful stay. Check this place out if you ever have the opportunity. Thanks ED for making the weekend a nice one!

This is the best by far B&B we've ever stayed in. A lovely restored 100 year home. Warm and inviting. Nicely appointed rooms, welcoming and helpful innkeeper. Terrific breakfast. Great location for exploring St. Pete. Will definetly stay there the next time in town.

The stay at the Dickens House was delightful. The owner and your wonderful host, Ed, was aware of our needs,safety, and comfort. He knows St. Petersburg and all that it has to offer. We had tickets to the Ray's game and because of traffic in Tampa we were running late and Ed arranged for a taxi ride from the Dickens House for us. Because of his attention to our needs we were sitting in our seats and enjoying a sausage dog as the first pitched happened. His breakfasts are what food legends are made of. The breakfast is full course. Waking up to the wonderful coffee aroma made me feel right at home. The B&B is clean, beautifully decorated and has all the amenities you will need. At no time, other than breakfast, did we know there were five other guests in the house. Breakfast conversation was informative, stimulating and pleasant. Ed's personality creates an atmosphere of acceptance and caring. We will return and stay at the Dickens House.

We really enjoyed our stay at Dicken House - the rooms are superbly kept, exceptionally clean, spacious and filled with beautiful furniture. The B&B is in the middle of the quiet, historic north-east district of St Petersburg, but only 3 blocks from the start of the restuarant area on Beach Drive. The breakfasts are delicious, and fill you up for the rest of the day! The owner, Ed, is an exceptionally nice person, very friendly and has lots of ideas on what to do and where to visit in the Tampa Bay area. A really nice place to stay and visit, and I'd reccomend it to anyone who wishes to stay in St Petersburg...
