Great Anniversary Getaway

We are a young couple with young kids who live in Sarasota, FL and we really enjoyed our one night getaway to this Inn. The room was charming, we enjoyed the bikes and close proximity to downtown restaurants and the bay park. The host and hostess were very friendly and helpful and served an excellent Eggs Benedict for breakfast. It was a wonderful place to get away not too far from home.

Nice little Inn

The B&B was in a great location with an accommodating young couple. We were here 4 nights and had something different for Breakfast every morning. They also had some nice touches as complementary bicycles, wifi, and a portable laptop to check our airline reservations.

Absolute gem

What an awesome experience. The beds are as comfortable as they get. The atmosphere couldn't be any more soothing and relaxing. The breakfast is delicious. I've been to many bed and breakfasts around the country and this is one of the best. Owners are super friendly and extremelly accomodating.

InnSide Tip - Must see museum
The new Dali museum is a must. I'm not too into art, but this place is out of this world. A must see when in St. Pete.

Unfortunate Event

I booked the Key West Suite as a wedding present for my son an his new bride. I called twice, including the day before the wedding, and was assured that a late arrival was fine. The hosts were out of town and left the inn in the care of a woman who said she was the chef and mother of the owner. My son said she appeared intoxicated and proceeded to query them in front of the other guests about their wedding vows for more than an hour. Once she finally allowed them inside she informed them there had been a "mix up" and they would not get the suite that was reserved. They would move them there the second night. After some other erratic behavior she showed them to the room that was last on our selection list. The next morning, the couple was awakened at 7 a.m. and told to move their automobile because it was blocking the van used to get breakfast supplies. They had asked about parking the night before and told they were fine. The newlywed couple was hesitant to eat at the end out of concern they would run into their inquisitioner from the night before. They checked out at lunchtime. This same woman tried to deter my e-mails and was reluctant to let me speak with the owners. However, they were no help and were confrontational and unapologetic.

Management Response
We are sorry that they did not have a pleasant stay. However, the guests checked in after 2 AM the next morning, well beyond the late check in of 11:30 PM that was communicated to the Inn as the time that they would arrive by the reviewer. While we appreciate reviews, the individual posting did not stay with us. Normal check in is between 3 PM and 6 PM. Also, the reviewer was not charged for their stay and we understand they were talking to other guests at the Inn that had been sitting outside that came back for the evening. While we do accept late check-ins that are reasonable anything this late is not and does not guarantee your room since it is considered a no-show. As a Bed and Breakfast we cannot wait into the late hours to receive guests without proper notice to either greet them when they are here or make other arrangements for access.

InnSide Tip - Book Carefully
Even my son said it was a beautiful inn. However, he said to make sure that the owners would be present during your stay. No one should have to experience the treatment they received.

Pleasant & Enjoyable

I have stayed at this Inn several times and found it to be thoroughly enjoyable. From the friendliness of the innkeepers and staff to the accommodations along with the location in St. Petersburg. The inn is right downtown and just off the bay. It is across the street from a park where many activities take place. For getting around town there is a trolley, horse and carriages, electric shuttles and they offer bicycles free to the guest to use. I will continue to visit and stay at this Inn due to all these reasons. GM

Amazing Experience

For the past three nights my wife and I stayed at the Beach Drive Bed and Breakfast. I would like to say the stay was pleasant and the room was remarkable. The service and cleanliness was what we expected and rates high in our books. I would like to thank the innkeepers for your kindness and comfort welcome. Best Regards Thomas G.
