Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Located across the street from a serene, sandy beach
  • Beautifully landscaped grounds, with cozy seating areas and a gazebo
  • Custom-designed heated outdoor pool with a spa cove
  • Clean, modern studios, and one- and two-bedroom units, all have full kitchens
  • Modern outdoor cooking area available for guests' use
  • Free use of bicycles, beach chairs, and gas grills
  • Free Wi-Fi in the courtyard

Cons

  • Somewhat small bedrooms
  • No restaurant, business center, or gym
  • Relatively far from downtown St. Petersburg

Bottom Line

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.

Scene

Charming beach-cottage property with cozy rooms

This charming beachfront bed and breakfast features plenty of greenery and outdoor areas to relax

The exterior of the Coconut Inn looks like a modern bed and breakfast; it's a large, two-story house made of brick and white siding, surrounded by a white picket fence and plenty of plants. Also along the perimeter are old-fashioned-style bicycles with baskets, which guests can borrow for free. The inn’s brick courtyard is inviting, with a fully equipped outdoor kitchen, a fountain, palm trees, a small gazebo, and a porch swing. The brickwork continues onto the deck of the small outdoor pool, which has a maximum depth of four feet, and a spa cove. Inside, the lobby is smaller and more low-key than that of larger hotels -- with just a desk, arm chair, flat-screen TV, and display case of hotel T-shirts for sale.

Location

Close to the beach and restaurants, but there's no on-site eatery

Map of Coconut Inn

Located between the town’s major thoroughfares -- Gulf Way and Pass a Grille Way -- the inn sits on a relatively quiet, mostly residential block that’s fewer than 200 feet from Pass-a-Grille Beach. Within a few minutes' walk are the Gulf Beaches Historical Museum and several restaurants, including Paradise Grill and Hurricane Seafood Restaurant, which has a popular rooftop for catching the sunset. There’s no restaurant on-site and no grocery store within walking distance (Circle K convenience store is about a 15-minute walk; Sweetbay Supermarket is about a 10-minute drive), so guests hoping to take full advantage of the en-suite and outdoor kitchens must have their own transportation, or walk to one of several nearby bus stops. The property is about a 20-minute drive from the museums, restaurants, and nightlife of downtown St. Petersburg.

Rooms

Small rooms with large windows and full kitchens

The Studio provides apartment-like living, with simple, clean decor and a full kitchen

Room options include studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments that draw repeat guests. Rooms are on the small side, but feel airy thanks to large windows and simple, clean decor: light wood floors and bare white walls, and furniture and fabrics in white, black, and gray. Balconies are available. All rooms have views of either the beach, gardens, or pool. Each room is equipped with a full kitchen (with refrigerator, oven/stove, microwave, dishwasher, countertop appliances, cutlery, dishes, and pots and pans). A four- or six-person dining table is also included.

Features

Heated outdoor pool, outdoor kitchen, and free bicycle rentals

Guests can utilize the outdoor kitchen to prepare meals, which can be taken under a gazebo

One of the best features of the hotel is its proximity to the beach, and the staff offers beach chairs and toys for guests to take to the sand. Free Wi-Fi is available in the courtyard, and there's a heated outdoor pool with a spa cove. Bicycles are available for guests who'd like to explore the area. A sleek outdoor kitchen with modern appliances (such as a sink, gas grill, and stovetop) sets this apartment-style property apart. Guests can enjoy casual dining outside under a gazebo, or at one of the cozy table and chair setups dotting the tropically landscaped grounds -- but they'll have to prepare the food themselves, as there's no on-site restaurant.
