This hotel has a wonderful location on the beautiful St Pete Beach and comfortable beds. However, the rooms are old and not super clean and the staff not so friendly. They don't allow drinks of any kind in the pool, but huge blow up rafts are fine. They bolted the sun chairs to the pool deck and use loud leaf...

I wound up booking this hotel at the last minute, pessimistic that it would be just an average place. It definitely wasn't average. Great decor walking in. Big room, with a terrific view. Oustanding bed, very comfortable. Friendly and engaging staff. Both Sam & Brenda were extremely helpful at the front desk. Ken at the Tiki Bar was also very...

My friend and I stayed from Thursday through Tuesday. Weekend was packed. The other days not as packed, but service was great. Hotel was clean. Staff was friendly. Pool beautiful, beach beautiful. It was the kind of place I would go back to. My only little complaint was I did not get good WIFI coverage -- very spotty. But that's...

Great location to get access to the beach, grocery, restaurants, pharmacy. Everything about our experience at the hotel was reasonable. From the kind and knowledgeable parking lot guard - concierge, to the friendly front desk, to the adequate rooms, and amenities. Everything was a little old and worn: just a little rust on the towel holder in the bathroom; the...

We stayed here for 3 nights during a stay on International drive and immediately were struck with the fantastic location of the hotel. It's on the beach, we were in a south wing room 318 overlooking the beach and just a hop from the pool, with a balcony. The hotel is opposite a Publix supermarket, which sells everything, there's a...

Location is awesome......rooms are pretty basic, but that is not why you are staying here.....pool that is good size and opens out over the white sand and ocean.....great little bar/restaurant that sits overlooking the beach next to the pool.....we would definitely stay here again.

There was nothing particularly wrong with this hotel but also there's nothing particularly memorable about it either. The room was large and comfortable but a little dog-eared and the carpet like most of them in the hotel was a bit grungy. Staff on the front desk were friendly and efficient and the WiFi was excellent. It's a shame the hotel...
