Instagram-Worthy Places to Stay in Florida
For some folks, a hotel is just a place to crash. For others, it’s what makes the whole vacation. St. Pete/Clearwater has hundreds of lodging options: downtown hotels, cozy vacation rentals, classic beach motels, awesome Airbnbs, and much more, to suit anyone's taste.
Want to stay right on one of our many powder-white sandy beaches? Beachfront properties along the Gulf of Mexico range from full-service destination resorts to beach bungalows and seaside B&Bs. Some highly rated beach resorts include Beach House Suites by The Don CeSar on St. Pete Beach, TradeWinds Island Resorts and its sister property Guy Harvey Outpost, The Sandpearl Resort and Opal Sands Resort on Clearwater Beach and JC Resorts Beachfront Vacation Rentals' multiple beachside locations. You'll enjoy in-room amenities like flat screen TVs and high-speed internet, with some locations even providing deluxe coffeemakers and refrigerators.
For something more intimate, you’ll find nearly 40 Superior Small Lodgings throughout the area—a collection of privately owned hotels, bed & breakfasts, motels and inns that strive for stand-out service and accommodations in the industry.
If you plan to stay a while or have a larger gathering, definitely explore your vacation rental options. These will include the comforts of home such as a kitchen and multiple bathrooms, and even a pool. Camping is also a great alternative to traditional lodging, with options including RV parks and beachside campgrounds.
Be sure to look up vacation packages to score a deal, or visit during the off-season (roughly May through early-October) for savings and specials.
