We had traveled to St. Pete for a wedding and stayed at this location with a group of people who were also there for the same reason. We had the 2 bedroom place and were quite comfy there. (I believe there is only one 2-bedroom) While my room was the closest to the street, I could not tell as the air conditioning needed the entire time kept the noise from bothering my slumber. I especially enjoyed the patio/grilling area as it gave us the chance to sit around and visit with those we had traveled with. I enjoyed the fact that it was a small motel without all of the busy-ness of a resort (plenty of those around). It was close to restaurants/conveniences. The beach was beautiful.
The rooms do not have hair dryers or irons but these are available from housekeeping. You can also obtain beach towels from them so there is no need to pack these things for vacation. The housekeeping staff were very friendly and helpful and deserving of a tip. Nothing was disturbed in the room. Fresh towels daily!
The manager wasn't overly friendly, but she was not unfriendly or rude. She was proficient at her job. I didn't come to visit her and so didn't mind her business approach.
All in all, I would return in a heart beat if going back to St. Pete.
This was my first trip to the gulf coast and will definitely return.
