Recently returned from a week or so at this delightful Inn. The room (Sunrise) was just great, the breakfasts were plentiful and the city a superb place to vacation. But most notable were the Inn Keepers and the location. Pete and Julie went out of their way to meet any need, even those from other guests that we thought were excessive. They are warm, friendly and most helpful. But for us, the location could not be better. Less than a block from numerous restaurants, short walks to museums and parks, the Watergarden Inn was a quiet, relaxing and well run hideaway.

We visited with Pete and Julie (Inn keepers) for three days and had a fantastic time. The Inn is charming, well kept and its location cannot be beat. You can walk to many great restaurants, museums, parks, etc. The trolley stop is one block away and offers free and low cost fares around the city. Listen to the recommendations of Julie and Pete for eateries and local deals that only locals would know about. And yes they can brew a great cappuccino and offer just the right amount of conversation about the many places to visit in St. Petersburg.

We had another fantastic stay at the Watergarden in November. The new Inn Keepers, Julie and Pete, have made a nice job of updating the Inn and keeping it as a great place to visit and stay. The rooms are clean and comfy, there’s everything you could want for a help-yourself style breakfast and the pool is a quiet and relaxing place to read, have a swim or sunbathe! The location is perfect - half a block from the restaurants on beach drive and an easy walk to central avenue, the bay and local attractions. We’ll be back without a doubt!

We just can't say enough great things about our time at Watergarden. First and foremost, Pete and Julie were awesome. They were so kind, personable, and helpful. We really felt like we knew them from before, even though we had never met. The breakfasts were good, the room was amazing, the location was perfect, but the hospitality and kindness of Pete and Julie was the best. Thank you for making a great trip even better!! I would highly recommend this B and B!!

Our B&B had a great location in walking distance to just about everything in downtown St. Petersburg. Julie & Pete were our Innkeepers & were friendly & very helpful with suggestions on where to go for good food & entertainment for our weekend there. Julie made fabulous breakfast casseroles each morning to go along with the fruit, cereal, yoghart, muffins, croissants, coffee & tea in their charming dining room. We loved that we could safely walk everywhere any time of the day or night from the Inn and that it was only a block from the Trolley that you could hop on for only 50 cents, if you wanted a nice tour of St. Pete to get our bearings when we got there. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit to St. Pete!

Room tip: We loved the king bed & jacuzzi in the Dolphin Room that overlooked the pool.
