Wilder & Bill Witt are Innkeepers extraordinaire. The room was lovely with every amenity, including a windowseat where I sat and read while waiting out one of those sudden summer thundershowers. The location is perfect, with many excellent restaurants from which to choose for lunch or dinner. The ambiance in the common areas was wonderful. What I particularly liked about the Inn (besides Wilder & Bill) was its simplicity and tastefulness without being overdone. I've already recommended the Inn to many of my friends, and I plan to return soon.

We celebrated our wedding reception at the Watergarden and what can I say.... it was amazing. This is downtown St Pete's best kept secret. It's just minutes from EVERYTHING St Pet has to offer yet as quiet, peaceful and secluded as any country inn. Bill and Wilder are amazing hosts! Truth be told I miss them already. The rooms were perfect, the jacuzzi tubs a really nice tough and the feather beds were great. This place has it all, all the charm of a turn of the century inn, maintaing it historical grandeur, an incredible oasis like garden and pool area and might as well be family innkeepers who truly love what they offer.

My husband and I just spent an absolutely wonderful weekend at the Watergarden Inn at the Bay. Our host, Bill, was warm and friendly - providing a peaceful oasis in the middle of downtown St. Petersburg. As Florida residents we truly appreciate being made to feel just as important as the "real" tourists! The room was clean, comfortable and quite spacious. The oversized, jetted corner tub was blissful. We honestly couldn't find anything not to like here.
