My boyfriend and I spent 3 days in Tampa Bay last week. We stayed one night at the Motel 6 Tampa, and decided to go to St Petersburg the next day. After a long day, we didn't want to make the trip back to Tampa, and decided to stay in St Petersburg. I booked and paid through hotels.com for one... More

A team of us came down to Florida to work on a campaign. Our job booked us at this motel on short notice. What a hell hole. This place was grimy and made you feel dirty. The room was roomy though and had a desk and fridge. Whoop-De-do. Wads of chewing gum stuffed into the corners of the shower. Hookers... More

Finding a hotel/Motel in St. Petersburg is a challenge. Prices are more than unfair!! Paid 100 bucks for 1 night, room was close to the pool, had some party people there, couldnt sleep until they were gone. Staff is friendly, helpfull. However breakfast was a disaster, coffee was empty, waffle machine broken, juice machine broken.... we went to dunkin donuts!

The hotel bathroom was about as clean as you could get a 60 year old bathroom. the room was clean, the staff was friendly. but the real shocker was that the room behind us had a Male dressed as female prostirute working out of it. and the hired staff confirmed my suspicsion of this activity. I did not feel unsafe... More

This hotel has a friendly owner and is really clean. It is showing it's age (a few broken tiles in the bathroom) but it is excellent value for a place to crash at night. I saw quite a few people swimming and enjoying the pool area. There was no evidence of the trouble that was mentioned in some of the... More

We were scared to go here because of the the prior reviews, but price (and Hotwire.com) dictated we at least try it. It turned out fine. Not luxury, as implied by the price. We had a king bed for 2 adults and a child under 2 for one night = $68. Comfortable bed, clean room/bathrm, working appliances (including frig and... More

This is my sixth day here and this place is disgusting, the ppl staying here are the worst of the worst of society, and most of all it is dangerous. Allow me to elaborate. There is a white fungus below the ac unit about 2 feet wide on the floor. Last night a ghetto person knovked on my door, said... More

My friend and I took a trip to FL for spring break this year and stayed here. We found it to be very suitable for our 2-night stay in St. Petersburg. Very close to Treasure Island and beautiful beaches, and the accommodations came at a much better value. Initially we were given a smoking room after having requested a non-smoking... More

My husband and a friend of his (both having served with the Marines) went to watch a couple of ball games. His friend was outside of the room when 3 crazy people began to approach him yelling. They chased him into his room and remained outside attempting to break the door in for 30min. Once they left my husband and... More

I just stayed here for 5 nites. Large motel w/ cast iron 'New Orleans' type metal balconies. Its true that the old owner was awful, and the new owners are definitely an improvement. They seem to be a large Indian family who run the place and live on property, and for the most part they are friendly and helpful, and... More
