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.

My daughter goes to Eckerd College so I found this hotel since it was close to the campus. It definitely is dated but it is convenient (right off of 275), clean and the grounds are impeccably maintained. The staff is always friendly, from the front desk to the housekeepers and maintenance crew. The hotel has a playscape for the kids,... More

It is an older motel/resort.rooms nice and clean,2 beds in our room,slightly noisy air on,bar fridge,balcony and one of the nicest pools I've seen in a long time. There is a short small shoreline that is pleasant.not too much food availableBUT a safe seeming neighbourhood.

Better than we expected...Great staff especially the security guard!! Great bar and bartenders!! I loved that there was so much for the kids to do in such close proximity to our room. We made great new friends at the marina and loved all the sea life we got to see so close to our room!

I looked at several reviews before booking this hotel but was really leaning towards it due to the affordability, it definitely didn't dissappoint! The staff at the front and the housekeeping staff were super friendly! Phyllis took care of our room and it was always impeccably clean upon our return. The staff made fantastic recommendations for things to do that... More

We arrived for our waterfront room and was told they didn't have one so they sent us to the back where we opened the door and almost hit the bed with the door because they were sold out. The smell of cleaning products mixed with mildew was nauseating. We returned to the lobby to tell them we couldn't stay there... More
