I live in Tampa and was trying to make a reservation for a getaway by the coast of Saint Petersburg. I got a very good deal and got there 4 p.m. The room was ready and the staff was very courteous. The room is indeed not gigantic since I reserved a standard room with view to the parking lot. I have to say that this fact didn't bother me much since the room was quiet, clean, well decorated in relaxing colors and the rest of the hotel was so nice to hang around. Of course, that is a room for a maximum of two people, with a small breakfast table/chairs, microwave, sink, small refrigerator. In terms of space for luggage, it could be tricky if you are carrying more than two pieces of luggage, but you can accommodate pretty well if you unpack everything and hang them in the closet and fold items into the drawers, then your luggage can me placed in the corner of the room with no harm to the overall space. One of the pools was located by the beach and they had free drinks from 5-6pm, along with a great sunset at the see. My reservation included resort amenities, which included, free towels by the beach, free cabanas, free wi-fi and free parking. There is also a nice fitness for workout aficionados. I had a great time and the best of my stay there was the fact that the location was so close to one of the most beautiful beaches of Florida. Definitely will go back!
