Covid 19 Update: After a yearlong journey, we are happy to welcome back our customers. Please read below as some services will be limited or not available at all. All food and beverage outlets will remain closed temporarily. We will maintain a very limited grab and go selection for light snacking for our customers in the main registration building. For your convenience, a list of nearby restaurants and bars which are open to the public as well as food delivery services and nearby grocery stores will be available. Room cleaning will only be performed at check-out; however, limited service may be available upon request. Pools, fitness center, playground and shuffleboard courts will all be open. Masks and social distancing will be required inside all public buildings. We recommend masks and social distancing outdoors when near other people. Guests arriving will experience enhanced safety protocols. Hospital grade disinfectants will be sprayed daily throughout all guest and public areas using electrostatic sprayers. Our suspension of daily guest room cleaning and removal of frequent touch points will help contribute to a safe and enjoyable environment. Each guest room will be thoroughly disinfected prior to a guests arrival. Guests will find multiple placements of hand sanitizer stands and friendly reminders about safe practices. Face coverings and social distancing in all public areas will now be required of our guests and employees. To ensure we properly execute these new safety protocols, we have required both management and staff to complete specialized COVID-19 training provided by the National and State Hotel and Restaurant Associations. We are minutes from Fort Desoto Park and the Gulf beaches. We are also in close proximity to downtown St. Petersburg and all it has to offer: Tropicana Field-home of the Tampa Bay Rays, The Pier, Salvador Dali Museum, Mahaffey Theater, and Jannus Landing. For the business traveler, we are close to Eckerd College, USF, St. Pete College AllState Center and all Children's Hospital. Our guests will enjoy all the amenities of a full service resort.

My son and I planned a fishing trip to the Skyway and stayed here and will definitely be back. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Many amenities on site, I especially loved the heated pool. Close to restaurants and stores.

Friendly front desk staff, easy check in process. Stayed here for 4 nights. My view from my room was of a tree. If I leaned far over the balcony I caught a glimpse of the ocean to my right. The rooms were clean, beds not so comfy. The resort could use come updating because pictures vs. real life view are not the same. For the price though you get what you pay for. Convenient parking. Beach was not upkept and the ocean was very dirty- we didn't swim in it. The restaurant part of the resort was closed. While fishing by the rails on the side of the marine We had an Employee by the name Joel approach us I guess pre-assuming that we were by the ramps where the boats were because of someone aka white older lady that lives on those boats stating people of color where by the ramp not asking just straight accusing that we were the ones of color on those ramps. Not knowing that the people of color that were walking down the ramp were people getting on some charter boat leaving from those ramps! Please be mindful if your staying here!

I will start by saying the grounds and the beach are nice. Also the location is off the beaten path, but still close to shopping and easy access to 275. However, the room was run down, grubby and in need of major updates. I do not know how this place has the number of excellent reviews it does... The toilet did not work and the person sent down could not fix it so I ended up having to fix it myself. The furniture was old and in rough shape. Even the sink was not secured in the counter and would move around when you turned on the faucet... While not the worst motel out there, I was not impressed for what they charge for a night. They really need to put better care into cleaning and updating the rooms.

Without a doubt the filthiest most disgusting place I have ever stayed. In the middle of Corona virus outbreak and I got into bed here to find pieces of paper and dirt in the sheets. They had not put clean sheets on the bed for our stay. Room is filthy and smells like mildew. Bathtub moldy. Ratty towels. Awful. Stay away.
