With this hotel you get what you pay for. It is a great location half the price of hotel next door. Room is clean but old. Lobby elevator and halls are narrow and shady. Once in room it is mostly good. We had plenty of hot water. Little or no wifi. Asked for no room service multiple times due to covid and not wanting anyone in our room. They came in most days anyway.

The moment I walked into the room I was disappointed. The AC didn’t work very well was very humid the next morning. Also you could see outside through the cracks by the AC was not sealed correctly. The hot water there was none it was lukewarm when taking a shower. The mattresses were terrible. I was getting motion sickness from my spouse is movement. The upkeep is very poor. The Design scheme is hideous it’s like they went to a thrift store and just picked up a bunch of furniture and put it in the room. And there were like 10 different colors of paint in the room. I was very disappointed. I will never stay there again.

Location was wonderful, close to The Pier, Central Ave, and so many pubs & restaurants. Property is very dated. Small rooms, just a sink, no bathroom counter, no safety rail in the tiled shower. The bar they show on website only seats 7 inside, there are some tables & chairs outside. The complimentary breakfast they speak of was canceled because of COVID, but not reflected in the overpriced room rate. Will stay at the Hyatt or Hilton next time that are only a block or 2 away.

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 A little outdated.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

Central Ave St. Petersburg FL
