We stayed at the Dolphin for a week in an ocean front room. The rooms are perfect for a family with microwave and refrigerator, large flat screen tv, comfortable beds, and direct access to the beautiful beach. Everything was in great and like new condition. The pool has plenty of shade and seating and is well maintained. The pool bar... More

Nice and clean spacious rooms. Even though the hotel is right on Gulf Blvd, we didn't hear the traffic noise on the South-facing rooms. Very nice staff and great bar to catch a nice sunset. Some people expect more for the price, but we've stayed a couple of time here and always has been great

We stayed at Dolphin Beach for 9 days in July, and, once again, we loved it! We had decided ahead of time to try somewhere different, but, after driving down Gulf Blvd. from Indian Rocks to St. Pete Beach, we turned right in to the same place we stayed at in 2011. After stopping at the tourism office and seeing... More

Thank you for staying with us at the Dolphin again! We also appreciate you taking note of some of our renovations, notably the lobby, the bedding, and the carpet. Last but not least, it seems you have a pretty good handle for the beach as Dockside Dave's and Buona Pizza are two of my favorites as well! More

The hotel rooms themselves were not so great however the location and family atmosphere outweighs any imperfections. The sunsets on the beach are absolutely beautiful. Also, crab hunting at night was a blast.

This hotel walked the line between really nice and kinda run down in a very odd way. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the rates were low. Best of all, it's directly on the beach, what more do you need. They also have very reasonably priced room service. I just wish they had a hot tub!

This place is locally owned and it shows. Some of the housekeeping staff have been there over twenty years. Marcel and Madonna the bartenders are wonderful. The front desk staff are helpful and kind. I actually have friends that live in St Pete and instead of sleeping on their couch I decided to stay another night. After being in the... More

Good location but very disappointed with the unfriendly staff. I stayed here because of the close proximity to the beach.. We were very unhappy with their treatment at a hotel in St. Pete FL. Staff need training with customer service.....

We are trying to have a family reunion each year in the summer at St. Pete's Beach. The hotel we used last year (Miramar) wasn't available so we tried this. While the rooms were more modern and bigger, the rest of the facility was average. It is much larger so the crowds are big. You need to get out there... More

The hotel is tired and run down, but with loads of potential.. We checked in and given our key- went to the room and it was not made up... This happened twice. On the 3rd attempt we got a made up room over looking carpark- great advantage...loads of room. We headed to the beach bar- really good but again in... More
