“Hotel Indigo is So-So”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

We used Priority Points to stay one night in March 2012. The hotel was easy to find and had great curb appeal. Checking-in was a breeze and staff was very pleasant. Our room was on the second floor and after riding up in the jumping elevator, we used the stairs. The room was pleasant sized and clean but the bathroom was tiny. There was no storage space in the bathroom for toiletries, had to use a small dresser in the room that looked like a pressboard cabinet from Walmart. There wasn't even a hook to hang a towel. As for the pressure in the shower, that was non-existent.The mattress had seen better days, it was lumpy and was not a good night's sleep. Not even all the light bulbs worked.

The location was good and convenient. What surpised me is that we came in late after dinner, using the back door facing the overflow parking. There was no sign of any kind of security. The door opened easily, didn't need the hotel key and I didn't seen any kind of security camera. We just easily walked in at 11pm and went right up to our room. As a woman who travels along alot, that was a bit unsettling.

Since I used points I wasn't too upset but if I had paid full price, I would have been disappointed.

The hotel was built in 1920 and has been renovated since, but the room sizes are the same. Meaning the rooms are small and the bathrooms are the smallest I've ever seen. there is literally a foot in between the toilet and the sink. If you are tall, you can wash your hands while still sitting on the toilet! Regardless to say only one person can occupy the bathroom at the same time. The room service is odd as they go in waves, they first pick up the towels and then (many hours later) they do the actually cleaning and a poor job at that. The last 4 days of our 9-day stay, they did not pick up our trash nor anybody else's. We were 8 people in 3 rooms. One maid even left a garbage bag and a note asking the people staying in the room to pick up the trash themselves! In my case, we had run out of both toilet paper and kleenex and the cleaning lady had not noticed for 2 days so we had to call twice to get someone to service us. All in all, I would recommend going somewhere else. But if you cannot find anywhere else, make sure to not stay there for long.

Our first visit to a Hotel Indigo and will definitely not be the last. Charming renovation of old hotel! Loved the colorful, funky decor. Great bed and pillows. Great location within walking distance to lots of restaurants, downtown shopping, museums and more.

We stayed at Hotel Indigo March 1-3, 2012 and were in a king standard room on the first floor. We loved many things about this site: walkable distance to St Pete museums, restaurants, and venues. We loved the updated decor, friendliness of the staff, comfie mattress, and spacious front porch. Yes, this is a renovated, historic property and with this comes some unique things that you will either find charming or irritating. For us, we'd rather stay in a location such as this instead of a typical chain hotel. However, there are two issues which might be problematic for certain guests. One, the bathroom in our room was very, very small and if you are a large person, this will be somewhat prohibitive for movement--just don't choose this type of room. Second, sound proofing is not modern and you will hear some hallway and above floor noise. It didn't bother us but for a light sleeper this might be an issue. We loved our stay here and will definitely stay here again if we are in St. Pete. Location can't be beat and they loved our guide dog puppy-in-training.

Room Tip: Ask about bathroom size for your chosen room. Light sleepers should choose the top floor.

After staying in "cheap" hotels during my trip to Florida, I decided to stay at the Hotel Indigo for a night at a cost of $100. Boy, was I disappointed.

First, the hotel smells like mold and I sneezed all night. Second, the staff is rude and in-accommodating, especially the night manager Linda. It appears that this hotel is run either by family, amateurs, or both. The hotel decor is old, worn out, and tacky. It looks like they bought their decorations at Target.

The bath is the size of an RV bathroom and the shower was covered in soap scum. Nasty!

If you are looking for a nice stay on St. Pete, this ain't the place.

My wife and I were guests at the hotel for three nights. A funky and colorful decor that grows on you. The staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. Our room was at the end of hotel over looking the pool - nice size and very quiet and clean. Parking was both plentiful and free!! Wifi the same - free. The restaurant/bar in the lobby served a tasty breakfast fair and the drinks were reasonably priced. Great location - close to the pier, shopping and restaurants and the Chihuly collection. Very nice lobby and porch/veranda area for relaxing. A fun place to stay - we would definitely stay again at the Indigo. It is an older property - some bruises but worth it!

Room Tip: Room 239 - king bed, quiet - over looking small pool
