While my older daughter was at Warped Tour, I wanted to spend some time with my younger daughter at the pool. I got what I thought was a good deal on Bookit for $55.00 for the night. We arrived at the hotel a few hours early and in order to use the pool they said I needed an early check... More

If you are looking for a 5 star hotel this is not the place for you. The room was hot. The AC unit is not big enough to cool down the room. I was moved and would have moved again but I had too much to move. The did not try to give any discount they just wanted to move... More

One night stay. The hotel is centrally located in one of St Pete's main streets, and it is clean (room and common areas). The typical two story budget hotel, with the basic amenities, but not of a dilapidated type. The lobby ceiling needs repair. Fenced parking lot, Very friendly staff. Early check-in (just one hour earlier) took around 45 minutes... More

Renovations are progressing beautifully. This is my second stay within the last six months. Rooms are large, recently renovated and immaculate. Front desk staff, the best~ friendly, personable, helpful. Pool area was spotless with a very large, clean pool ........... close enough to downtown and Rays' stadium. Denny's is next door which is great for breakfast!

For under $50, the room (which was recently re-done) was adequate and generally clean. I commend Magnuson for going with tile rather than carpet; there was no musty rug odor even though the A/C was off upon arrival. Linen was clean and the room is equipped with a flat-screen TV with DirectTV (I'm not sure about selection or reception, since... More
