Stayed here for several days last week to fish and really enjoyed this place. A great spot to relax and enjoy the quiet surroundings of the bay, catch some fish, and see some marine life like manatees and sting rays. Housekeeping kept everything clean and office staff were friendly and helpful. Shelly checked us in and answered any questions, she...

Really enjoyed our stay in this very clean hotel owned by a wonderful family from Poland. The rooms were spacious and well equipped , even including a large TV in each room.

Nice, clean, pet friendly rooms. The mattresses on the beds were a little to "broken-in" but the sheets were clean. Great price, and located towards the end of St. Pete's beach, with reasonable walking distance to all of the action on the beach. Friendly, helpful, and informative staff. I would definitely stay her again!

My husband baby, dog and I checked in for a two day mini vacation and were happy to find a dog friendly resort as many in St Pete do not accept pets. The room was nicely maintained, kitchen stocked for cooking, crib was already in the room when we got there and overall I was pleased with the accommodations. I...

Thank you for leaving a review. I’m sorry that you found our property noisy. That is usually not an issue, but I can understand your infant being extra sensitive. It seems that you enjoyed the property and were happy with our staff and service. We have some very nice suites with bay views and private balconies that would be ideal...

The suite was huge--a kitchenette, bedroom with 2 double beds and cable tv, bathroom, small patio, and a large dining room/den with table, cable tv, couch, chairs, etc. Note: bring your own coffee or tea. There is a coffee maker to heat water, but nothing to put in...

This was a wonderful get away! They were so clean and really pet friendly. So many times I am disappointed with the dirty facilities for pet friendly hotels. And then they hate your dogs anyway. Not so here. The dogs loved it as much we did. We will definitely be back.
