We really enjoyed our stay at the HOJO on St. Pete Beach. We read all the reviews and thought we would give it a try. What we found was a very moderately priced hotel with an extremely helpful and friendly staff, a clean room, nice pool, and great beach bar. And they have ice makers and washer and dryers too!...

The Location is awesome. Right on the beach. The bed was comfortable. The hotel seemed dirty and in need of a paint job. Maybe that's from the salt water? The back elevator was Scary. The maid staff was rude and one refused to get us towels because she didn't service our room and she had no interest in telling the... More

We did enjoy our stay last week although we had bad experience with housekeeping. Upon checking in we discovered a large disgusting splatter on wall in bathroom. Can't imagine how this was missed, Housekeeping was gone for day and although we were offered to switch rooms, we opted to wait until morning since we had unpacked and were exhausted since... More

We got a great price on a Gulf front room with two queen beds for myself and two kids. The balcony was very very narrow and that was the only thing I didn't like about the room. Very convenient to have the car parked in the lot between the room and the beach so we could drop things off. Front... More

Here now. Ad says Gulf view from your room! Of course I don't have one. Customer service is weak. They didn't care about anything but checking you in. No Continental Breakfast. The Monkey at the beach was nice. Rooms need to be modernized. If you're with kids it's o.k. Anything else look elsewhere!

Every May we have our mini family reunion at this hotel. You can't beat the deal. The Toasted Monkey bar out back and restaurant out front are GREAT. The pool is fine with shufflboard. Could use more shady areas to camp out. We always travel with our family, and now 18 month old daughter. We love this hotel!
