This is a lovely small hotel run by a friendly couple in the heart of St. Petersburg. We stayed here one night in March so we could visit the Dali Museum. The compact rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is ideal. Just leave your car in the free parking and walk or take the trolley to where ever you...

The innkeepers were VERY friendly and helpful. A GREAT location. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and nice. The breakfast was adequate. It had all the amenities you'd expect - TV, cable, air conditioning, etc. We were a bit concerned about parking, but parking was always available in the covered parking building right across the street, and it was part of...

If you have had enough of the large chain hotels with their chrome and glass and want something pleasingly different then here is your place. The Inn on 3rd has wonderful hosts in Stephanie & Brian who chat with their clientele like family and none of the bland chat that you get at reception in chain hotels. You can see...

It almost felt like stepping back in time entering this historic Inn. People actually having conversations with each other instead of a cell phone. The customer service could not have been more accommodating. From the generous continental breakfast to the evening social, any request was met with a smile and a sincere attempt at fulfilling it. I arrived early due...

This was my second stay at The Inn on Third and it was just as delightful as the first. Squeaky clean rooms, lovely ambience, friendly hosts.

Our stay here was truly perfect. We got there an hour before check-in and they allowed us to check-in without any problem. The inn was built in the 1930s and the owners have kept the look and feel of that era. The room was spotless. The entire bathroom was brand new, but they kept the look very traditional. The wood...

Chose this location as it was so close to Central Ave and Tropicana Field. Nicely appointed B n B, quaint older building that's keeping the charm and character with the old woodwork and original tile on the floor of our bathroom. The continental breakfast was welcomed and there's an evening social hour in the front parlor with a complementary glass...

We stayed here for an overnight trip to Tropicana Field to see the Rays. The hotel is walking distance to the stadium, with lots of bars and restaurants along the way to break up the walk. The owners were incredibly friendly upon arrival, and the room was very quaint. We will definitely stay here again!

We have stayed with Stephanie & Brian 8 years now. The first year we stayed there, Brain knew I liked raccoons. We joked about a picture they had, of a raccoon and I told Brain that if it was missing when we left he would know what happened to it. The next year they redecorated and Brain took that picture...

I stayed here for three nights. The hotel is located in a pretty much central location no further than 15 minutes walk from anywhere you might want to go to in the downtown and waterfront areas. The area felt very safe if a little empty of shops, bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity. The hotel is very friendly and...
