Great place...... Pass A Grille is not a huge resort spot and neither is Keystone. It is beach lover's paradise. The hotel prides itself on maintaining it's low key atmosphere and very reasonable rates. I answered no on "trendy" and "better than average pool" because those things are exactly what I don't want. Clean hotel, pool is fine!, patios overlooking... More

Our room was an efficiency apartment although it only had room for two guests (one bed). We didn't use the kitchen although it was nice having a refrigerator which many rooms did not have. The room was on the 3rd floor, accessible by stairs only. While it was quite warm the week we stayed, we were comfortable keeping the window... More

I checked in early and paid the extra. $15 fee, only to find the room was filthy. It had a smell of cigarettes and filthy carpet. No fitted sheets, and the family room we signed up for with two rooms only had one window unit in one of the rooms. This forced us to keep the door open, so defeated... More

The staff was rude, carpets were disgusting. No frig, no microwave, not enough outlets. There was no table and stingy with the towels. The beds were so hard my 17 year old daughter woke up with a sore hip. When we checked out, the office was not open until 9ish and we left at 9:35am. Left the keys in the... More

This hotel is a bargain for the area. It is ideally situated in wonderful Pass a Grille, perhaps Florida's most beautiful beach town. The owners are very nice and helpful as pointed out in other reviews. The parking pass is great, you can park your car anywhere in a 30 block area and not have to worry about the meters.... More

I was in St Pete Beach back in September staying at the Sirata. I decided to check an area further south in Pass-A-Grill which is south of the Don Cesar. Very quaint area, mostly residential, but a few hotels, an awesome historic area. I saw the Keystone Motel, and it looked very charming, and clean. So I had read the... More

Keystone Motel in Pass-a-Grille, St. Pete's Beach, is a traditional American Motel run by the same family for many years. It is undergoing some renovations that will suit well the property. The space is ideal and the swimming-pool a great plus, but some renovation would make it ideal. Its location is fantastic as Pass-a-Grille does not suffer big property developments... More
