Great for the price

For the price and location, this was a great pick and bang for your buck. The staff was very friendly. The location was wonderful, being a block from the pier and waterfront. On the weekend, there is a fantastic farmers market just a block away. The hotel itself, though, wasn't so great. The rooms were extremely small. I ended up having to stay in two different rooms (because I booked the nights at different times). In the first room, the bathroom sink was outside of the bathroom and in the second room, the bed pulled down from the wall.

I liked the charm and character, but the room had an odor and the carpet didn't look like it had been vacuumed. Fantastic location! Overall, not bad.

Fantastic Getaway to downtown St. Pete!

Blocks from the Dali, MFA, and tons of fun downtown bars! The queen suite was roomy, had a balcony, and a great view!

Downtown location

Staff was very nice, room was small and didn't have space to put your things away, no fridge in room, ice on 3rd floor. AC was loud bathroom small. No pool and no parking area only street parking which worked out ok.But it was very clean,staff was very helpful and the downtown location was great. Since we spend very little time in the room it was better then spending $50 a night more next door. If we wanted to stay downtown again this is where we will stay. Enjoyed it.

Memorial Day Weekend

The hotel was small and quiet. Overall it was a decent stay. One thing I did not like was the shower was awkward. Also, they do not tell you about the drinks they stock in the fridge. I thought the water and coke was left over from another guest and they charged $2 for a 12 oz coke can.
