The mid-range 11-unit Coconut Inn Florida draws families and couples who want a quiet boutique-style property with close proximity to the beach. The custom-designed heated outdoor pool with spa cove, tropical gardens, and shaded seating nooks throughout the property are big plusses. Amenities such as an outdoor kitchen and free bicycle rentals add to the property’s charm. All units have full kitchens, and either pool, garden, or beach views. The inn lacks features that come standard in larger hotels, such as a restaurant, gym, and business center. Vacationers who just want to spend time at the beach will find the inn to be a great escape (and room rates are comparable to nearby properties), but those wishing to explore St. Petersburg’s cultural scene may opt to stay closer to downtown.
