“The staff was amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Alonso and Joe were both very helpful so glad to have met them! Our room was right by the 21 and over section and we were kicked out for just sitting on chairs numerous times... Probably shouldn't give people who are under 21 a room there

We have been coming here for years and have always recommended this facility. This year's trip has been so disappointing. I realize it is spring break and incredibly busy, but adults only pool is filled with teenagers taking chairs that should be for adults (seems trite--but not so much when there are no seats because kids are jumping all over them, texting, and taking pictures), the workout facility (has 5 cardio machines and 2 are broken) is embarrassing for how much the rooms are per night, and the amount of noise at night during the midnight hours is astronomical. Will be looking for a new beachside location for next spring break :( the management just isn't willing to step up and enforce "the rules" that have been set in stone in the past.

We just had a very short (2 nights) stay at the Guy Harvey at a very busy time (start of Spring Break). We chose the Guy Harvey to be close to friends staying at the Beachcomber which is the next hotel but one along Gulf Blvd. A good choice as we could get our family party of 4 into one room which we couldn't do at the Beachcomber. Good decision, saving the cost of a room, and we got a beach facing room which was lovely. There was everything we needed in the room, albeit quite cramped for 4. But the hotel has a terrific friendly atmosphere, due mainly to the staff who were chatty and helpful. We took advantage of the free cabana for a day; nice touch. The hotel is really well located with everything we needed in walking distance. Will happily stay here again.

Just returned from 5 days at Guy Harvey Outpost in St. Pete's. Excellent time, freindly staff, clean rooms, beautiful beach, many options for dining on or off resort that you could walk to. I would agree with other reviews about rooms on North side of buidling being noisy. These rooms face a bar (Toasted Monkey) on the beach in front of Howard Johnson and was always playing music and appeared fairly busy. We were facing south over Adult pool and never heard them. Will go back!

Friendly staff and a good location, right on St. Pete Beach. Clean but slightly aged rooms, worth paying for a room upgrade as the standard was a little cramped. Rooms on the North side of the hotel ( next to the Howard Johnson ) are bombarded with noise from the Beachcomber Hotel, with live and not very good bands playing from mid afternoon until 10.30 at night.
One small beach bar that does a happy hour from 5-6 p.m. House wine, beer and a weak rum punch are the free drinks on offer,buying drinks can be pricey, 2 non-alcoholic pina coladas cost $ 23.50. Ouch.
The gym on the 3rd floor is pretty good and quiet.
Had a good stay and would return.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side are quieter but the better views are on the north side.
