This place was very nice compared to most places in St. Pete beach and on up to Clearwater. The person you call to book, Anna, was very nice and informative.
I got the first floor, corner beach front room, 201, because in addition to overlooking the beach, it overlooks the pool, so my friends who visited could keep an eye on their kids while hanging out in the hotel. You can go on the back balcony off the sitting room and watch the pool, or you can sit on the front balcony and you're right on the ocean. So, when I wanted to run inside for a while, I still felt connected to the group.
If you were in New York, this would be considered a large two bedroom TWO BATH suite. In St. Pete beach, they call it a "1 bedroom with a sitting room." It could have slept 6 comfortably, and it had two full baths. The kitchen / dining area and the living room all have direct ocean views. The building is a little fancier than most of the hotels in this area, which was nice. It's also more on the Pass a Grill side of St. Pete Beach which we liked because it's a nice walk down and back.
The room had a washer, dryer, and dishwasher. The only drawback of this hotel is that you can't walk directly from the rooms onto the sand because they are all up a flight. On the other hand, this made it feel safe to keep the sliding doors on the balcony open all night which gives me the feeling of really being on the beach.
I didn't see inside any of the other rooms in this building besides mine, but I did check out the Don and the little Don first, and my room here at Vistas was much nicer AND less expensive!!
