“Horrible!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Do not stay at this "hotel"!
It has been the worst experience I have made so far.
The trouble already started when we wanted to check in. They did not even have our data in the system so we had to pretty much book a room again. The room was dirty (I did not dare take my shoes off).
The worst part was the next day - we did not have any cold water and since it was impossible to wash with burning hot water we immediately called the front desk. After a very long time and endless calling they finally sent someone to fix the problem: the maintenance guy turned out to be a completely clueless guy who did absolutely nothing to help. What is more, he disappeared without giving us any explanation! Again after endless calling we were offered another room where we could shower. My husband had to walk with his bathing items to the other room and come back with his wet hair (no hairdryer of course).

The guy at the front desk was very rude and no helpful at all!


Please do yourself a favor and never book a room over there!!!!!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

I recently visited St. Petersburg on a business trip and stayed at this hotel. The hotel seemed newly decorated then when I was here last year. I asked the front desk person and he said that they had change of ownership and that they were upgrading all the rooms. I certainly found this to be the case when I went in the room. The room was clean, the beds and furniture was new with flat screen tv. Overall pleasant experience this time then last time I stayed here which was horrible.
They have weeded out bad guests and it was very quite and peaceful. I will definitely come back here. Friendly personnel makes the difference as well.

Room Tip: They have over 80 newly renovated rooms so ask for one of them.

Very much enjoyed my stay. The front desk clerks were so polite and helpful throughout my visit and the prices were quite agreeable for the ambiance of hotel. My room was spacious and clean and I loved the fact that there is an on site laundry facility. Next time I'm in town Ocean Palms Hotel is definitely going to be where I return to!

Room Tip: Even room numbers are located near the pool

We stayed here July 4-8, during our trip to Florida. The room was decent, clean, but there was no dresser or coffee maker in the room. Also there was no iron and ironing boards available for visitors to use. The pool area was nice, the water was great! The bathroom was very small, but served its purpose. No breakfast of any sort, but there was a Dennys next door, which was a bit dirty and the food wasnt that great. The location was decent, close to many restaurants and the beach areas.

Room Tip: I recommend a room overlooking the pool.

We were a church group with pre-teens and young teenagers. When we checked in, having to pay CASH for the ENTIRE reservation time in ADVANCE, we went to our rooms to find soiled sheets remaining from the last occupants' sexual encounter. Everything was filthy, and the "free continental breakfast" consisted of stale cereal, bruised and rotting fruit, old coffee, sour juice and paper plates. DISGUSTING!!!

Stayed here for a weekend in August 2010. The motel is in a less than desireable neighborhood. You know you are in ghetto territory when you see multiple nail salons, check cashing places and pawn shops. If it were not for the palm trees this could have been a bad area of Prince Georges County or some of the cruddier hoods of my home town of Baltimore. This Ramada looked like it was originally a Holiday Inn that was built around 1962 or earlier. A two story motel with a courtyard surrounding a pool. We were first given rooms on the first floor facing the parking lot. Both rooms had woefull air conditioning. The through the wall under the window units were underpowered and in one room blew hot air. My two friends felt the rooms were dirty so off they went to a Wal Mart or wherever to buy bleach. I stayed behind and "borrowed" some citrus smelling cleaner that smelled nice. I went back to the front desk and requested a change of rooms. The front desk agent was sweet and gave me two rooms facing the pool which she liked. These were much better. The air conditioners in both rooms blew cool air and were adequate. However, the A/C does not reach to the bathroom. I like a cool john. I swabbed down the counters and bathroom with the citrus smelling stuff and the room smelled nice after this. The pool area was OK, average cleanliness. However, later, I brought back some excellent carry out wings from "Winghouse." Out came the little roaches. yuck! The TV was your standard 27" tube model but, I was not in Florida to watch TV. ST. Pete Beach which is gorgeous is a 20 minute drive away from the ghetto. The lobby looked like something out of a bad early 70's "blacksploitation" flick with worn red velvet sofas and carpet. I swore I've seen it in old porn movies (LOL) The air conditioning in the lobby was literally nonexistent. The business center is complimentary but, the printers did not work. I needed to print some cruise itineraries and flight paperwork. Another nice young woman behind the desk tried doing it for me but alas her printer also was DOA. The complimentary breakfast was served in a dingy meeting room that looked too like it was featured on :Love American Style. The food was actually pretty good. I encountered the best sweet saussage triangles and the scrambled eggs were good with what I thought and hoped were chives not those little roaches. The staff and owners are friendly but sadly this Ramada needs "Extreme Makeover Hotel/Motel edition." A 24 hour Dennys is right next door. Big deal. I don't care for Dennys. But thank God Winghouse was a 5 minute drive up the main road and the area slightly improved.

Room Tip: If you must stay here get a poolside room first floor and check to see if the A/C is cool enough for...
