We were going to be in St. Petersburg and hoped to find a nice place that was near the museums, restaurants, and everything else the bay area has to offer. This B&B had stellar reviews, so we booked a room. What a great place! The innkeepers are personable and helpful. The location is convenient to everything. We parked the car (they have their own lot) and walked or took the trolley everywhere. Our room was nicely furnished and comfortable, with a whirlpool tub, a walk-in shower and a Keurig coffee maker. There are nice common areas where you could sit and talk or read. The grounds were beautifully designed and maintained, with a pool that looked like fun, but weather in the 40s kept us out of the water. Oh, and the breakfast! Sometimes at a B&B you have a short window of time to get up and eat, but here you have plenty of time to sleep in a bit and still have breakfast. It's served buffet style, with enough variety to suit most anybody. Bill is happy to make you an espresso, too.
Watergarden Inn at the Bay helped to make our short trip a memorable vacation. We look forward to returning soon.

The Inn is located one block from great restaurants, art and the bay area of St. Pete. The owners could not have been more accommodating. Our room was lovely. The pool is private and the grounds are lush and private. And, parking is free!!! We would definitely return to this wonderful inn.

St Petersburg is a beautiful town. On one of the best streets right off the bay you'll find the Water Garden Inn owned and run by a couple from Seattle. They have already won an award for their renovation. Or should I say preservation, and for their landscaping. The pool and lush surroundings are a fine retreat right in the middle of downtown. Bill and Wilder are more like gracious hosts than b&b proprietors. My room was a little bit small but very comfy with a huge whirlpool tub--also very quiet and serene. This is my new favorite home in St Pete.

We echo all other positive comments below, good location, very friendly and helpful owners and an excellent healthy breakfast. We are keen on good coffee and Bill also seems to enjoy serving good coffee to his guests with Nespresso (type) machines in all bedrooms as well as the kitchen and lounge areas. We had an enjoyable day on bikes and came back to an oasis of calm and a lovely swimming pool. They deserve to do well and to be NUMBER 1.

Room Tip: We had egret room on the front but there was no traffic noise at night.

Great location, one block off the bay between the Chihuly glass and Dali's painting. Watergarden is an oasis of peace and quiet. Wil and Bill are friendly helpful and entertaining without being intrusive. Interesting clean rooms. And when you add their pool to all there is to do just a step out the door it's like your own little upscale resort. Very reasonable rates as well. You wont go wrong here.

Room Tip: Free off street parking as well
