“enjoyed my stay !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Flew into Florida from Chicago for a family wedding! Our rooms were booked at the HoJo on St.Pete's Beach, May 2nd through the 6th. Although the weather didn't cooperate for an outside wedding, the staff at the Toasted Monkey welcomed us indoors! A big shout out to Julie & "B" for accommodating our reception desires.
Our rooms were clean & the staff was extremely pleasant !!!!
Cynthia at the front desk is great :-) Personality plus !!
We had many wedding guests in & out of our rooms, left quite a bit of a mess at times. Latasha, in housekeeping 5th floor, was extremely helpful in meeting all of our needs!!!! A big 'thank you' to her for being our 'Mom' away from home, picking up after us ! lol She even went out of her way to find an earring that I lost in our room!!
Would certainly stay at the HoJo again !!!

this hotel is gross, it is pretty old and just not worth the amount of money they charge. it is old, there are holes in the wall, the sheets smell like mothballs and its old and simply needs to be updated to the 21st century. the location is right by the beach which is nice but if you can spend the extra money and stay elsewhere.

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your visit with us. We are indeed an older hotel with some dated fixtures. We work very hard to maintain the cleanliness of the facility. We are looking forward to beginning some renovations this fall. I hope that you will choose to visit us again to see the improvements.

We stayed here recently after a trip to Disney. We are a family of four with two boys age 7 and 10.
We stayed in a room with a full kitchen and living room. It was clean and very comfortable. The walls are paper thin. My children had a very hard time sleeping here. The hotel was full of young adults partying at all hours of the night and wedding guests who clearly thought that walking the halls of the hotel at 2 am was kind to the rest of the people staying there. The pool was nice except it was salt water and my children hated it so we ended up leaving the hotel each day and swimming in a friends pool. The food at the toasted monkey was amazing, highly recommend it. In my opinion this is not a family oriented hotel and would not stay again.

Thank you for sharing that your room was comfortable and clean. I am sorry that the noise of other guests disturbed your visit with us. There are certain holidays such as Cinco de Mayo that require vigilant security for the celebratory guest noise. I apologize that we failed you during this visit. I would love for your family to visit us a different weekend next time and show that we are a family friendly destination.

We decided last minute to stay in St. Pete Beach for a night during peak season. We found a room at the Howard Johnson that worked well. The room was basic and a bit run down. The location is nice and you can walk to easily to the beach. The pool was always crowded, but they have a few games set up for people -- shuffle board, beach volleyball and some other fun activities for the kids. Our family had fun playing the games when our day at the beach was too windy and overcast. We were very unimpressed with the front desk reception workers. They seemed to be tired and have an attitude.

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your visit to our area. We do indeed have a wonderful location right on St. Pete Beach. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed the pool area, as well as, the beach volleyball and shuffleboard. I apologize for any attitude that you feel you received from my front desk. I will be sure to share your comments with the front desk supervisor so that we can improve on our customer service. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with me. I hope that you will visit us again and experience the difference with the front desk.
