This is my 3rd stay here. I usually stay in the pricey hotels my husband prefers, and B&Bs give me the creeps and/or sinus headaches from my dust allergies, but this place is the best of both worlds. Very clean and comfortable, all the niceties such as a water cooler & sodas in the lobby plus happy hour glass of...

This hotel/inn/B&B exceeds their reviews. Brian and Stephanie do an outstanding job of managing this Inn; and even get help from Stephanie's parents (Oma and Opa). At least 3 languages are spoken here. The location is within walking distance of everything. Parking is free in their lot. Continental breakfast is filling and a good start to your day; happy hours...

We booked this hotel for an overnight stop in St Petersburg. As in most of the recent very positive Tripadvisor reviews we had a very friendly, pleasant and professional reception, a neat first floor room with quality furnishings, an enjoyable 'happy hour' with conversations with other guests, and an excellent choice of good quality items for our continental breakfast.

This stay was our second time at Americas Best Inn, once again as we visited our daughter at college. I felt comfort, relaxation and hospitality as soon as I stepped through the front door. We arrived during "happy hour" when wine and simple snacks are set out in the front room. More like a B & B than a hotel,...

The two owners welcomed us with big smiles. They offered a glass of wine or a beer that they called happy hours. They make you feel at home. The hotel is very cute and the rooms just the right sizes and clean. If you need to find a place to eat, they got a book of recommendations with menus of...

I had never been to St Pete and the need for a layover before a long flight back to Asia presented an opportunity to visit the city whose many attractions include the Dali Museum.

The first thing this hotel's owners tell you is "The rooms are small." They're right. But those rooms are also super-clean and comfortable, and the facility is run with pride and friendly personal service. We were in St. Pete to attend a Tampa Bay Rays game. The next morning, we had a (complimentary) breakfast with fans from both teams, and...
