This B & B is located in an ideal area. Close to many restaurants, shopping and public transportation. We parked our car at the onsite parking lot and got around to all the museums by bus. So convenient Our hosts were very friendly. Hoghly recommend Beach Drive Inn Bed and Breakfast

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.

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.

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!!!!!

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.

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.

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.

I am not usually a huge fan of the B & B concept however, this B & B was nice! We were able to check in prior to the 3 pm check-in time because our room was ready. Jana's greeting and information about town was most helpful. The breakfast the next morning was adequate. Met some other nice guests while there. Wish I could have met the Innkeepers (owners) but it was a Saturday night stay so maybe they work M-F or were on holiday themselves. This location is very nice, unless you want the beach, but it is not too far. The trolley service provided by the city was nice and inexpensive.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will actually become a huge fan of B&B's. I was not able to meet you because my wife needed some holiday time for ourselves most likely since my wife travels the majority of time herself.

Beach Drive Inn is a charmingly beautiful B&B. The rooms are good sized and well-appointed. The location is perfect for anything you need in St. Petersburg. Breakfasts are absolutely delicious! Roland, Heather and Jana are gracious hosts, making everyone feel right at home. Definitely a winner!

This little inn is a great place to stay in St. Petersburg. Wonderful location, friendly staff, and beautiful inn. We arrived on New Year's Eve for one night and we're treated to a family-style barbecue in addition to a delicious breakfast in the morning. Innkeepers Heather & Roland can't do enough for you!

The Beach Drive Inn B&B is an excellent place to get away for a couple of days. Roland was very hospitable, as well as his 2 dogs. The inn is situated in a great spot to park your car and never get back in it until you are ready to leave. The Vinoy park offers many festivals through out the year and down town restaruants are right there for you to enjoy the area dining. The Penscacola room was well appointed, the bathroom a little small, but it met our needs. I would not hesitate to visit again. Roland looing foward to seeing you on TV.

All I can say is .......WOW!! My wife and I stayed in the Key West suite for a romantic weekend getaway. The room was beautiful, the house was gorgeous, the food was fantastic and the innkeeper and staff were friendly and accommodating. It was a top notch experience from check in to check out and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

I've had beautiful rooms, but feeling comfortable and at home I only get at the Beach Drive Inn

Stayed for 2 nights. Our experience was great. our room was spacious and comfortable. the amenities were great-free breakfast. This B&B is a keeper. Thank you!
5 on May 18, 2009
This B&B has it all: great view, step away from all manner of dining, walking distance to many attractions, friendly innkeepers who have some pretty neat plans up their sleeves, the yummiest home made cookies and so much more. Next visit will be in The Vinoy Room or The Key Largo Inn. Tina Czarnota, mystery author & sponsor of Nat'l Country Inn, B&B Day.

The service was great, and the B&B had a great atmosphere (very cozy). Our room was comfortable, and we slept great.

This is the best B&B I've been to by far. The inn keepers are the most welcoming and the location is great. From my room I could lay in bed and hear the horse drawn carriages go down the street. It was so peaceful and extremely clean. The Inn is beautifully decorated with many period pieces of furniture. The suite was decorated with top of the line bed linens for that extra comfort.The breakfast was outstanding, not the usual cold breakfast. The Innkeepers made sure had a gourment hot breakfast if you desired. So if you are looking for a great romantic place to stay or on business you won't be disappointed.

A great place and so convenient to town...on the trolley line

We found the Beach Drive Inn B&B on a spur of the moment decision to spend New Year's Eve in downtown St. Pete. How lucky were we?! Not only were we within easy walking distance of everything going on, we had one of our best B&B experiences. Roland and Heather met us at the door and it didn't take long for us to feel at home. What a beautiful home it is. Tastefully decorated, not overdone or tacky. The room was very comfortable with great views from the sitting room. Roland and Heather anticipated every need and then some. Homemade cookies before bed, breakfast on the front porch...We will be back!

What a fabulous place - from the gorgeous house to the amazing location - to the wonderful hosts. I would highly recommend this B&B! I loved the location walking in the park late afternoons and the view from the Pier. My husband nd I were in desperate need of some R&R and this B&B was perfect! Our 4 days here were amazing! We did not want to leave. We will be back next year with some more friends. Thank You, Michelle and Kevin Babcock- Washington DC

This place is very quaint and romantic, perfect for a getaway with that special someone. House is beautifully decorated with period accurate antiques, simply gorgeous. The food at breakfast was amazing, as were the freshly baked snacks provided. The staff could not possibly be nicer, they were great. The location is also amazing, within walking distance to the Pier and Citywalk. The only complaint is that the bathrooms in both the Boca room and the Key West suite are very small. So small in fact that myself at 5-8 and my girlfriend at 5-1 barley fit. If you are over 5-8 book one of the other rooms :) All the rooms are beautiful and the beds were very comfortable!

What a fabulous place - from the gorgeous room to the gourmet breakfast - to the wonderful hosts. I would highly recommend this B&B!

We were greeted at the door by Roland & Heather. Our room was beautiful and very clean, Breakfast offered a wide variety of delicious foods and fun conversations. We loved playing mexican dominoes on the veranda. The inn is centrally located, we walk to North Shore Park & Beach, Pier, Musem, and enjoyed Shopping on Beach Drive/Baywalk. I would recommend this Bed & Breakfast to someone who wants to spend a relaxing time or on business. We will be back soon. We did not want to leave. Michelle & David

Beach Drive Inn is the former Vinoy House. The Inn has been completely remodeled and is under new management. My husband and I stayed in July of 2007 and all I can say is WOW, WOW, WOW. We stayed in the Sunshine Room and it was decorated beautifully. The InnKeepers also serve beer and wine which I thought was a very nice touch. Breakfast in the morning was anything you could ask for - waffles, pancakes, pastries, cereal, eggs, bacon, sausage...the list goes on. The Inn is centrally located within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and the Pier. Heather & Roland, thanks again, we will be sure to be back.
