Historical Traveler Reviews Americas Best Inn St Petersburg Saint Petersburg
Our stay at the America's Best Inn in St. Petersburg, FL was Great!!! My wife and I were looking to enjoy a getaway weekend from Miami and this hotel was just what we were looking for. The young couple that run the place were very friendly, the room was very clean and the location was excellent! I highly recommend this hotel.
Love this hotel!!!!!!
As a longtime visitor to St. Petersburgh Beach, I am a huge fan of this area! We have stayed many times at this resort, and always have a g reat experience. It is family owned for several decades, is not fancy, but very clean and it has been modernized several times. The staff is very friendly and helpful, even offered to find rooms inland during Hurricane Wilma, if need be. It is the best value we have found on the beach, many different styles of rooms to accomodate growing families or, as we are, longtime returnees with our grown children and grandchildren. I can only say, you will be very pleased if your goal is to find a place that feels like you are going to your second home when you go to the beach!!!! The BonAire will fill your wish!
Great hotel - Quaint Feeling
My family and I spent the weekend in St. Petersburg for a marching band competition and stayed at the Best Inn. The Inn is quaint, more like a bed-breakfast resort. They had a nice meal for the morning, and evening snacks. The owner-managers were very nice and extremely helpful and friendly. I rated it excellent because of the value and friendly service. It's location was great too, only a few blocks from the bay, shopping, and restaurant locations. I would stay there again if we go back to St. Pete.
Very nice, quaint inn with more of a bed-and-breakfast feel. Not elegant or fancy, but very nice and management is extremely helpful and friendly. I rated it excellent because of the value. For example, unlike some quite expensive hotels, telephone (even long distance!) is free, and free wireless internet connection (in some rooms and in the lobby.) Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends.
Not the same feeling
Been there before, but now looks like they have new owners and it's not the same atmosphere, before it was like your grandma's house, now it's not the same feeling. Breakfast now it's so so, and happy hour very cheap.
The room wasn't worth what we paid for it, although they do offer a substantial Continental breakfast and wine and cheese from 5 to 7.
Bathroom tub and sink need replacing. Beds were clean and comfortable and location was ideal. Basically needs some updating.
Cozy & quaint
Stayed here for 5 nights in March. Not big rooms, but cozy. Wonderful staff, and a great location. The "fully stocked kitchen" mentioned in the December 2002 review is no longer there, which was a downer. But great breakfast and service.
It's sorta like your great aunt's old house: needs some TLC and some work here and there, but it's a well-loved and comfy place.
Excellent service, great hotel, not expensive, great happy hour every day for the guests, lovely breakfast.
Employees are the best, always helping the guest.
And the best of all free long distance calls.
Yes free long distance calls
Smoke-free, quiet, clean little inn
We stayed at the Lee Manor Inn for several nights in December 2002. It is a 100% non-smoking facility and the place was spotless. It had the feel of staying in the home of an elderly relative -- lots of antique-y furnishings and knick knacks. Our room had two beds, a dressing table, a chest of drawers, telephone with modem connection, a pleasant bathroom (with shower/tub combo) with handmade soaps, television with 70+ channels, a refrigerator and coffee maker. The coffee maker was on the top of the refrigerator, and the cord to the coffee maker was so short that there was no place to plug it in without moving it onto the floor! There is a furnished kitchen that guests can use, where coffee seemed to be always brewing, so not having a coffee maker wasn't a big drawback. The kitchen has a large fridge and freezer, and is stocked with juices and milk for guest use. There is a soda machine that dispenses cold cans of popular soft drinks @ 50 cents each. Guests can make toast, cold cereal, or help themselves to grocery-store-type pastries and fruit. Guests are given their own keys to the front entrance and guest room, so you can come and go as you please. The front lobby is a cozy area where you can relax and watch tv, read or talk to other guests.
During our stay the place was very quiet. I'd recommend this place to anyone who wants to be within walking distance of the charms of St. Petersburg at a reasonable price. The charm is in the quietness and cleanliness, not in gourmet food or staff pampering. (We rarely saw staff.) There seemed to be a core group of retirement aged people who were in winter residence, so this might not be the best place to bring noisy kids. After 10 PM silence reigned.
Lee manor inn
We recently stayed at the Lee Manor Inn. Disappointing. High price for a dusty room.

... humid) and we were on the way to Destin which was halfway between Clearwater and New Orleans. It was a 6 hour drive so I wasn't particularly looking forward to it... Clearwater was a great stop, it was fun having the dog and good company in the apartment and the beach was ok. It probably was a bit too touristy for me. A lot of billboards and signs and American chavs possibly. The sea was lovely but the apartment made up for it and at least we got to visit the restaurant ...

Lately, we've felt a similar mood when we've returned to the large, international airports and slogged through the miserable process of re-entering our own country. The customs official in Tampa who detained us clearly relished the power to make us weary travelers more unhappy showing his power in his ability to get us stuck (temporarily) in stir. It didn't feel like ...

... guy was about 50 and looked like he was an older rocker from the eighties. On the bus for some reason eighties glam rock got mentioned and he said how much he liked it. Courtney said that she liked Poison and you could see this guy's eyes light up. He said that we could watch a rock doc about the band Poison. He also got us seats in the front of the bus so we could better see the television. When the bus got going, up came the movie. It was a good hour of footage of ...
Checked out of the hotel and headed to the ship a little before Noon. It was only about 5 min by cab, to the pier. The line to drop your luggage was extremely long, and took us almost 20 min. Then upstairs for a much shorter security line, and no line for Suite Guest check in.
The best benefit of being in a suite was that the room ...
