Just finishing a week's stay at the CRR and have had a fantastic week at the beach and enjoying the great pools. The place was super quiet and within walking distance of excellent restaurants. The parking lot got flooded from some of heavy rain earlier in the week but moving to another lot solved that problem. The staff are excellent... More

I read a lot of negative reviews so I was very hesitant about booking at Coral Reef. The good: Nice beach area and very nice pool. Bar/restaurant next door, rooms are clean but a tad dated (not a big deal at all). The not so good: Nothing to do within walking distance as everything involves needing a car and paying... More

This resort could be the most fantastic place ever. But the management keeps it third rate. They are replacing the old and run down hotel part eventually, so the front looks like H E double hockey sticks but the back is fantastic. Beautiful white beach, infinity pool, and another pool with a lift in it, washers and dryers within the... More

Giving this "resort" a 1 star is being gracious. We simply checked in to this place and checked out within 20 minutes. I told my husband we were either going home or finding another place to stay. We were lucky that there was a nice resort next door with availability. Upon arriving, the signage is almost non-existent, there is a... More

Made it through a week here. Every other hotel is booked. Dark hideous tunnel to find office to sign in. This place stays booked because it's on the beach and not very costly. Condemned strip portion of hotel all boarded up- needs to be torn down. Nothing to do, no exercise equipment, no pool classes or comps to a gym.... More

Review for our Gulf front Room. Nice accommodations, nice friendly staff and the nicest pool on the Gulf Coast. Of course the Gulf front rooms are the nicest with a beautiful water view. The place is fairly clean and our room slept four, queen bed and pull out couch which is not the best or most comfortable. All in all... More

Coral Reef Resort has been a fixture on St. Petersburg Beach since the 1950s. It's been around as long as Ted Peters' Smoked Fish Restaurant. In 1967, we stayed in the Aldin Motel adjacent to the Coral Reef, then walked to the Coral Reef to eat in its restaurant. My brother has owned a time-share room at the Coral Reef... More
