Hotel Accessibilty Statement

 

The Inn On Third is a historic inn, built in 1937.

Despite the architectural challenges an old building like this pose, we are currently in the process of making our inn as accessible as possible. All changes regarding wheelchair accessibility are pending approval by the City of St. Petersburg's building department. If approved, we expect to offer limited wheelchair accessibility and have a (limited) accessible guest room available for reservation by the end of September 2019.

Unfortunately, full wheelchair accessibility is not readily achievable at our property.  

 

Update 11/04/2019: We are awaiting a decision from the city of St. Petersburg, in regards to the installation of a ramp, chair lift and widening of a bathroom door way. Unfortunately the permitting process has taken longer than initially expected. Please bear with us, while we await a decision from the city in regards to our planned upgrades.

 

Once completed, the Inn will feature:


- a wheelchair ramp into our building (pending city approval)
- a chair lift from the ground floor lobby to the ground floor hallway (3 steps) to provide access
 to the accessible guest room (pending city approval)
- staff assistance with lifting the wheelchair up and down the steps while guest is using chair lift
- an accessible dining table in our lobby which doubles as check-in table (pending city approval)
- staff assistance with accessing the breakfast and evening social buffet (40 inches tall)
- handicap accessible parking is available in the public garage across the street from our inn. 
  Please check in with us first, and we will issue you a garage pass key to use during your stay. 

 

Once completed, the Accessible Guestroom will feature:

 

- 31 1/2 inch doorway into guest room
- lowered peep hole (pending city approval)
- door knock sensor with strobe light
- bed vibrating alarm clock
- hearing impaired smoke detector with strobe light
- remote control for the AC wall unit 
- 32 inch doorway into guest bathroom (pending city approval)
- wall mounted sink with accessible hardware (pending city approval)
- lowered bathroom mirror (pending city approval)
- grab bars at the toilet
- grab bars in the bathtub
- handheld shower head
- portable transfer bench for the bathtub 

 

Please be aware, that while a wheelchair will be able to enter the bathroom (pending city approval), it will not be able to maneuver around. This is due to the small size of our guest room bathrooms. 

 

In order to allow for the appropriate clearances in the guest room, the dresser has been removed and appropriate shelving for storage of your personal items can be found in the closet. 


Due to the small size of our guest rooms, large motorized scooters/wheelchairs may not be able to maneuver around the guest room. 


We do not have onsite accessible parking, as we rent our parking from neighboring businesses. 

If you have any question in regards to parking, please feel free to call or email us. 

 

In addition, the following guest room items are available upon request:
- TTY 
- door knock sensor 
- bed vibrating alarm clock
- hearing impaired smoke detector with strobe light
- a portable raised toilet seat
