We stayed at this hotel for a week for vacation purposes. Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay. DO NOT USE MAPQUEST directions if you are coming from above Florida, as the directions turned us completely around after leaving Tampa and entering St. Pete. Our room was located on the back side of the hotel. It was very quiet. This hotel is pet friendly and I saw all sizes of dogs that were there. The room was clean but it was a little smaller than one of the Extended Stays we have previously stayed at. This is not a super fancy hotel, but one for those that like average, comfortable stays, but when it comes to customer service the overall friendliness of the staff makes it above average.
The staff was very helpful and nice. They helped guide us in once we got lost from mapquest. At one point I needed to print our Busch Gardens passes because the local Office Depot had closed, and they allowed us to access them and print them off. That saved us a lot of hassle trying to find someplace to print the tickets the next morning. They also gave us extra coffee, towels, etc. as we needed them.
We don't like room service and are not very messy so the Extended Stay/Homestead Suites are very convenient for us since room service is an extra fee if you are staying less than a week. We did pay the extra $4.99 for internet access for the entire week.
The lighting in the back of the hotel might need to be addressed since there seemed to be a light that wasn't working so it was a little dark. All other areas around the hotel were lit up in the parking lot except the back, so if you were out walking at night it felt a little creepy.
There are plenty of places to eat all up and down Ulmerton Ave. and a Publix right across the street. There are also places to shop and several miles down the road there is a Target and the best pizza place ever called Beach Pizza. Panera Bread is also right next door, for a meal or snack when you want one.
This was a great trip and a very comfortable hotel. Would stay there again if ever back in the area.
