It is not a fancy place at all but it has all the basics and the kitchen well stocked. Bring your own pillows, the ones there were old and flat. It is a short walk to at least 6 bars and restaurants. Also a short walk to the beach. We would stay there again.

The owner and manager are both very nice. The pool is well maintained. There is a laundry facility on site. The water is literally across the street with some cool local spots within walking distance. I love sitting outside in the chairs in front of our room with a cigar and a glass of wine and watching the waves across... More

This will be our second year heading to the Sundial. Yes - it is old, yes it has the bare basics, but the location is great, the staff are friendly, and the price is great. You can walk to a great beach bar, its two blocks to a fabulous long beach, restaurants are only steps away. Kerry, the day manager... More

Talk about False Advertising! They claim to be "voted cleanest motel in St. Pete Beach." I'd REALLY like to see the people who voted! It was old, dirty, bare minimum furniture which was uncomfortable. I specifically made sure the room was non-smoking, but outside EVERY room is a table, 2 chairs, and an ashtray. The woman next to us stayed... More

Run down motel in marginal location. Dirty. Walk across floor and your feet look like you stepped in tar. AC old and noisy- had to turn it off to go to sleep. No maid service during stay. Have to drive to beach - it's so far away.

Prime spot for enjoying the best beach in Florida and to watch great sunsets. Walk to shopping district, hip restaurants and cathch a movie at the historic art deco landmark, St. Pete Beach Theatre . So much fun, felt like a kid again. Comfortable, very clean rooms and nice pool, I'll be back!
