Gret stay! Great location!

5 on July 22, 2016

We had an excellent stay at the Beach Drive B&B. Jana the innkeeper met us the first day and shared a lot of good information about the B&B and the local area. She is a real gem. Christy the housekeeper was very helpful and went out of her way to see we had what we needed. The room was very clean and comfortable. Roland he owner was friendly and knowledgeable. He tried to meet our every need. Plus he was fun to talk too. Knew a lot about the area. The food was excellent. Each breakfast was a delight.An excellent experience.


A great location but in need of update

We stayed for one night and had a nice stay. The location is perfect and the service was great. Nice touches included coffee snacks and evening wine. However the rooms were a bit tired a could be updated (better a/c, decoration and tv), without losing the great character of a nice old house.


Awesomeness

The warmth my husband and I felt from Roland, Heather and of course Jana was unsurpassed. The bed was more than comfortable, and I can not give high enough praise for the delicious breakfasts we were served. If you are looking for a perfect place to get away from it all or want to be in the thick of things this is the place to stay. You will not be disappointed!!!!!


Excellent Location. Rooms Oddly Sized

4.0 on August 29, 2015

We stayed in the Key West Suite. It had a wonderful amount of space in the forward sitting room and an enormous king size bed. The mattress was older and particularly firm but the sheets and pillows were incredibly soft and comfortable: this they compensated for the hard mattress. The bathroom in this room was a converted closet in the corner and was difficult to stand in or use for both myself (I'm 6 feet tall) and my wife (who is 5 feet tall). I understand the need for space and the fact this was clearly an old room converted into a suite. The jacuzzi tub (which we couldn't figure out) is in a converted sitting area in the center of the wall at the foot of the bed. Which continues an odd tradition I've noticed at B&Bs of the bathing area being clearly visible from the bed. It's peculiar. Overall the place was great to stay in. You're afforded a privacy not always found at B&Bs as well as a solitary freedom for a quiet weekend. The location is walking distance from most everything on beach drive and it was quiet even on the weekends.


Quaint and convenient!

We were in town for a conference, which was conveniently across the street. Owner and staff were very friendly. Our room was upgraded, for what reason we didn't really find out. But the Key West suite was spacious and the bed was comfortable. If we return to the area, we would consider staying here again.


Great Location - Great Value

We enjoyed the close proximity to Downtown St. Pete. The B&B was perfect for a weekend get away.

Though not recently, my wife and I have stayed here multiple times. The owners are great, and they are very accomodating. There is a wine and cheese social. We also loved that they have a pair of bikes to use if you want to move around town. Most everything is within walking distance anyways. I prefer this B and B over the hotels in downtown. The value is there and it is much more quaint than the hotels, including the vinoy. I will be back and I recomment it often.


It fefinitely felt like home!

We enjoyed our time at Beach Drive Inn B&B. Everything went smoothly, the location was excellent we had a wedding at the Vinoy and the it was very convenient. The breakfast was tasty and we enjoyed the complimentary bikes to tour the downtown.


Thanks for the Hospitality
