As usual we had a delightful stay at this casual, welcoming B and B. The host makes his guests feel like family and the accommodations are pristine and comfortable. The breakfasts will be the highlight of your stay. Joyce and Harold

Ed runs a very nice B&B to which we would gladly return if we visited St. Petersburg. My wife and I spent three nights there during May and June. The house is a well-restored Craftsman that had fallen on hard times. The house and furniture are very homey. The air conditioning works fine. The breakfasts were great. The company around...

The Dicken's House was the perfect place for my husband and to try a B and B for the first time. It felt like home. Our room was beautiful. The owner was a wealth of knowledge about the area and recommended wonderful restaurants, things to do and see. The breakfast was always delicious. I loved eating around the big round...

Just got back from a trip to Florida and was lucky enough to spend 3 nights at Dickens House. St Petersburg is an up market and interesting city and Dickens House is just a short walk to plenty of restaurants and local attractions. The real gem of the establishment is Ed, the owner. His service is second to none and...

Only staying in St Petersburg for a few nights meant we that we researched thoroughly on the best place to stay - following the strength of previous reviews, we booked in at Dickens House. The owner Ed, greeted us warmly, provided us with a early check in (we arrived at 1pm) and was on hand with plenty of local information...

Good B&B. Great location in St. Petersburg. Clean rooms. Friendly owner. Parking was on the street but easy to find and neighborhood seemed very safe. It's also within easy walking distance of the stores and restaurants along the waterfront area.

We only spent one night and got upgraded to the Carrage Suite, but it was a wonderful place. House has lots of character and I don't mean that in any negative way. The suite was spacious ,well appointed and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was well done with most folks seated at an eight person round table so conversation was...

We just returned to gray, slushy NYC from a sunny, delightful week in St. Petersburg. Our delight was, in no small part, due to staying at the Dickens House B&B. We booked late but Ed, our most excellent innkeeper, made the Carriage House available to us as we were staying a week. It is an upstairs apartment in a small...

My wife and I have stayed at the Dickens House several times in recent years, and it keeps on improving. Ed's selection of fresh fruit now sometimes includes papaya and juicy dates, and he has become even more creative with his breakfast preparations including eggs and pancakes made differently than you've ever experienced before. The Cottage Suite remains my favorite...
