My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay, mostly because everything we needed was with walking distance. Our room was located on the second floor facing the Main Street; highly recommend!! The staff was very friendly and can I just say we were welcomed with complementary wine and hors d'oeuvre, yummmm.

My experience was great, the staff, in particular, was helpful, honest and thoughtful. This is a casual, boutique style hotel, not for everyone. The lobby is so beautifully charming...comfy vintage pieces along with a dining area that sparkles in the morning sunlight. My mom-in-law and I made use of the covered porch every morning to read, & the 3 wrought...

First of all I think whether or not you will enjoy this hotel is totally dependent upon what you ike and what you're looking for in a place to stay. This is a vintage hotel. The location is great! You can walk to all sorts of things: the beach, shopping, restaurants. There is a grocery store and a pharmacy not...

My wife and I tried this hotel during a visit to St Pete since we were unable to get a room at the place we love for part of our sty. The location and reviews for the Cordova seemed pretty good so we tried it. The location is great, the common areas are small, but OK. The rooms are rather...

whitehorsetravellers, Thank you for the feedback. We appreciate your business and the opportunity to communicate with you and future guests. The rooms at Cordova aren't huge but aren't tiny. The hotel was built in 1921 and back then the size of rooms and bathrooms weren't what we are all used to in today's new construction. The windows on the West...

The price was right & the location was perfect. Kayla was very friendly and helpful. We were lucky to get upgraded to a suite--furniture was old & antique looking but really enjoyed the room. It had a living room, 2 bathrooms, and a small bar area with mini fridge. The lobby is charming and outside is beautiful. We missed breakfast...

We spent 4 nights here and were thrilled with the location. It is walking distance to many great restaurants, shops, museums, movies etc.. Near a number of parks including Demen Landing waterfront park. A great place to check out downtown!

The hotel was small and cozy, the staff was excellent. We stayed only for a few days and found it close to everything we needed to do. A short walk to the locale market for anything you may need. Next to a park.

We needed a place to stay for the night after attending a wedding. The Cordova Inn was perfect for that. The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The continental breakfast was included and very good.

We stayed one night. Checked in late. Friendly staff. Small but clean room with no fridge. The bathroom was very small not enough space. Air exhaust vent was very very laud. Rust on the floor. The bathroom needs upgrading. We liked the ambiance of the old hotel, but felt it needed an upgrade. There was a big parking lot next...
