Ponce De Leon Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location near all the cool bars and restaurants.

Close to everything Downtown, hotel was what we expected. We knew it wasn't a 5 star resort. But in the right location.

Nice old classic hotel. Had to change rooms because of broken toilet. In new room shower didn’t work properly. Price was good. Parking directions and instructions were probably the worst of everything. I would consider staying there again depending on the price for the value of the property. Great location

Hotel is quirky and funky and older. But shower door broken to the point couldn’t get in and out. Bathroom wood door stapled and got stuck trying to open. Tv didn’t work. Elevators were quite hot all the time. Slight smell to the air all the time

small dated property with paper thin walls couch in my was filthy. staff not rude but curt 1 slow elevator but location was optimal i did not have a chance to visit the cerviche bar but it was always busy that weekend just needed the room for sleeping good thing also no parking all parking is st a cost they should provide a voucher for some of the nearby garages meter parking does not apply between 8pm-9am. would not put my spouse in this place.

There were roaches in the rooms. My staff moved to a different hotel for their last night in St Petersburg.

The location is excellent! The staff was very proffecional and helpful.

Close to event and walking around downtown. Close to food

Close to everything, clean yet artsy. Friendly staff.

Vintage decor. Uncomfortable room seating. Bathroom smelled musty.

Parking was confusing and when I tried to get clarity from the front desk i was given a confusing memo. I figured it out but with a little effort it wohave made it much easier. Also the room was just ok. Old TV and shower took forever to warm up.

I always enjoy the uniqueness of the hotel. I cannot wait to see the renovations next year.

It was ok. Reasonably clean. Bed was not real comfortable. Sheets were not soft. Bedspread & pillow shams dated. Bathroom was very small but adequate. Furniture was scratched. Bedside lamps not adequate. Must use overhead light to read. Nothing to write home about.

Location was near many attractions. No on site parking, had to walk several blocks and pay for it.

The rooms, while small, were very clean and comfortable. Convenient to downtown and priced below everything else. We were not at the room much so it was fine by us. My only real criticism was the lack of hot water. There was a decal in the shower that said to run water for 1-2 minutes for hot water. We ran the water, and 3 people took showers, but the best it ever got was mildly warm. I notified zone front desk and was told we could try another room. We had fried s on the 5th floor and they had none either. All in all a great value and I would stay there again.

The room absolutely REEKED of toxic room deodorizer like Febreeze or something. I slept with a tshirt over my face because I could not breathe. The sink water would not drain, the lighting was awful one fluorescent bulb in a ceiling light fixture which was very creepy. The desk almost fell over due to wobbly legs, the walls were paper thin, the bed was awful, and so were the pillows. Sorry this hotel should be purchased and restored to a beautiful boutique hotel in downtown St. Pete, just on block from the water front. It's a shame because it is historic and beautiful, but needs work, new owner, or new management.
