“Tale of two suites”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

We had a travelzoo deal for 2 nights which I upgraded to a full ocean view . We got a partial view in a room 4306 which was run down with an old couch with a thin mattress, a lousy shower, and the major problem was a big dog next door which was barking at night and early in the morning, on the balcony close enough to ours that I could have reached over and petted the beast. My wife is severely allergic to dogs and we never stay at hotels that allow pets, but when I made the reservation I was assured that pets are only and ever allowed on the first floor. The next day the manager put us in a full ocean view suite 4301 that was much cleaner, had a nice couch with a good mattress, a nice shower, kind of what I expected from the start, too bad we wasted the first day. The service was good but they do charge $45 for a couple chairs and an umbrella, bring your own. At least our deal avoided the $28 a day resort charge and got a $50 credit which I used at the Don restaurant. All in all it was worth the price sans the dog.

Don CeSar is one of the most unique hotels in the US. I love attending the conference held there each year for Legal Services project directors - although I also enjoy the large, very comfortable rooms at the Beach House.

We have stayed at the Beach House Suites 3 times now, once for two weeks and twice for 10 days each. We love this place. Beautiful pool area, beautiful beach, nice condo-style room. the staff is superb! They have always gone above and beyond to make us happy. Add to all this, you also have full use of the facilities at the parent hotel down the beach, Don Cesar Beach Resort. The pool up there is stunning and we enjoy walking up there for a change of scenery some days and the wonderful restaurants at the Don. The pool area at the Beach House is more laid back though and we usually just stay there. We visited here the first time because we found it was pet friendly. We like to travel with our two little pups and Lowes goes out of its way to accommodate them. As long as the Beach House is Lowes property, they have clients for life. We love this place so much. Going back for Labor Day in a couple of weeks and can't wait!

Room Tip: All the rooms enjoy good views of the beach and pool area, but we always splurge for one of the &quo...

Really enjoyed the spacious Beach House Suites. Beautiful balcony views from every suite. Beautiful pool and beach front property just steps away from your room. While the Don is beautiful, the Beach House Suites give you and your family the room to spread out and enjoy your vacation.

I travelled to St Pete Beach with my 2 teen kids. We had the best time at the Beach House Suites, the main Don pool and the beach. We had great service at the pool from many folks but our favorites were Michael, Ernie and Jaffe. We enjoyed the meals and smoothies by the pool. This is our third August in a row to visit the Don! We will come back again!

This hotel is very nice, however the rooms are not very modern. The room itself is very spacious and perfect for families as there are 2 bathrooms, one bedroom and then one pull out sofa bed. It is right on the beach so the view is fantastic and you can always get a seat by the pool. Everyone here is very willing to help and when you stay at the Beach House you have access to its sister hotel - The Don CeSar who offer water-sports and have 2 very spacious pools. I really enjoyed my stay here and have been here many times! Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Choose a room with an ocean front, or a room on a corner because then you have a view of the beach a...

I would have given this hotel a 5 if the rooms didnt need updating. Altough nothing was broken or uncomfortable furnishings looked worn. Other than that this hotel is a great place to stay. It is on the beach. I had a great ocean view room. The pool area is very nice and the staff very attentive. The hotel has a kitchen which was a great money saver for my big family. Right accross the street is a Walgreens and a little further a Publix Supermarket. Staying here also gave us full access to the Don Cesar which was a very nice surprise. I highly reccommend this place.
