This was a cozy hotel, Only stayed one night, so I didn't drive home (45 min away) after a party. I look forward to returning to experience all the amenities. Love walking on the beach in the AM. Restaurant was like a mom and pop place but food was fast, hot, and to order. The staff needs to be more... More

My family and I had to stay here due to an emergency death in the family. I can't express more on how the staff and hotel was outstanding. Everyone there could have not any more respectful or helpful. The rooms were clean and nice. I would highly recommend staying there as well as my family would stay again also.

As always we had a great stay in the Hotel. The only Thing we could complain is the Restaurant. It is a fantastic Location to enjoy a nice dinner. But the menuecard is rather modest and the cooking on a deeper niveaux. And this since several years. That is to bad for such a great Hotel place! But we will... More

Excellent customer service, everyone was very nice and helpful especially Art at the front desk. We stayed in the bay front rooms and it rained on our first nights stay and we were pretty much stranded in our room. That building was the only one with no overhead coverage to walk to the front parking area so it was either... More

I didn't personally stay here, but a friend and her daughter did while visiting me did, so I was frequently at the hotel with them. We picked it because it was cute and off the main St Pete beach area and well priced. The staff was very accommodating (they let them change rooms, so they could have a balcony) and... More

Overall this was an excellent hotel. Everything was clean and bright, and hotel staff were extremely helpful. The location is perfect and not too far from the city. The only downside was the staff at breakfast time, the service was poor and they all looked as if they did not want to be there. The complete opposite can be said... More

We found this little jewel in our own backyard. The hotel is very nicely done and the doors on the rooms remind me of an old fashioned changing room that you would find at a beach. The property is very well maintained, and the staff is very friendly. The highlight is the bar in the back of the property. It... More

Staff was incompetent, poor upkeep, manmade "beach" not maintained, infested with bugs. Food was good, and two members at the front desk, Matt and Marcus, were really helpful! Other than that, the place was just awful.
