You can’t beat the location. It’s an older boutique hotel. It was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The hotel was ok. The rooms were clean. Never got the WiFi to work, and the bathroom was super small and the show was not working properly. A little outdated.

Didn’t like nothing really bad advertisement very bad

Excellent location, friendly helpful staff. The building is older with a lot of character.

Classic elegance! The outside window actually opened for air!

Loved the location. The accommodations were very shoddy.

The location was great walking distance from many areas. However the pictures of the property on their website or deceiving. There was low water pressure and two of the rooms that we received we’re not remodeled and very old. The window screen was broken or missing. The AC unit was not functioning correctly and cooling enough. The bed was saggy and worn out. False advertising with incorrect pictures is the downfall of this location. The staff were nice and professional enough but the location and building needs significant renovation of the rooms and not just a couple rooms for pictures

Location is excellent, parking was nearby, desk clerks were friendly. Room was clean, but there as no service to our room one day

Everything was old and dated the service was not good.

Stayed in many hotels in St Petes By far the worst experience

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
