"Comfortable and Quiet."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
This quaint hotel has a wonderful history in the Saint Petersburg area. The building is from the early 1900's and has undergone remodeling. There is a lovely veranda with rockers for relaxing. I understand there is a pool, but I did not use it. The room with a queen sized bed was roomy and included a single cup coffee maker, microwave oven and small refrigerator. The bed was very comfortable. The bath had good hot water in the shower always appreciated. The room was quiet; I did not hear noises from other rooms nor from the street. A filling breakfast was delivered to our room and was delicious. The staff even met our requirement for an earlier breakfast than usually provided as we had a busy day ahead. I have only one complaint and it is minor. There is coffee available in the lobby most of the day, but there is no creamer. There were some packets of dry powder, but Mini Moos would be appreciated. We will be back in a couple days and we plan to use Crystal Bay Hotel for future visits to family in the area.

"Historic but needing in modern conveniences."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The Crystal Bay Hotel is quaint but not in necessarily a good way. Staff is pleasant and accomodating. No wheelchair ramp so how are oldsters to get in and out? Luckily an elevator. Musty smelling and humps in halls I know the building is over 100 yrs old but needs renovation. Didn't realize hotel was dog friendly. I like dogs but don't want to bunk in a room where one has stayed. AC cannot be regulated so have to either turn it on to cool or just off to dethaw. Good price and great breakfast though. I will return to St Pete but will look for another hotel for the next trip.
