Howard Johnson Resort Hotel - ST. Pete Beach FL
Ranked #25 of 32 Hotels in St. Pete Beach
Reviewed April 24, 2012

We wanted some relaxing time on a great beach, but we didn't want to spend a fortune. The Howard Johnson suited us pretty well. It faces right onto a great beach, although not many units face the Gulf. The price was really reasonable, the rooms were clean, the service people were very nice, the kids loved the pool and the over-sized shuffleboard. It is an older hotel and it shows some wear and tear, but clean, safe and a great location with lots of restaurants close by. The plumbing fixtures are dated, but functional and I found the beds to be comfy, which doesn't happen too often at this price-point. They have a couple of coin operated washers and dryers, which was really handy. The slightly negative things were you had to go outside to access the lobby, the wireless internet did not work in the rooms, but it did work near the elevators.

i had read some pretty bad reviews on this hotel but knew the loaction was great so i booked it anywas and was very pleasantly surporised. i found the room to be nice, clean, property kept up, and the staff very nice and friendly. its not a 5 star resort but it doesn't charge for one. its a simple clean and nice place to stay. i will most likely go back there next year. location is in the heart of everything. i like to walk and found an abundance of restaurants and shops all around.
ut was a great bday and as far as i was concerned paradise couldn't get any better.

Room Tip: there is no fitness center that was why i gave a terrible. i stayed oceanfront and the room was spac...

The only reason I'm even giving this Howard Johnson's hotel two stars is the great location on St Pete Beach, and decent pool area. This hotel itself is in need of major repair and updating!. The carpet in our room was ripped and dirty and the fridge was old and rusty! The fixtures in bathroom were very old and worn and the tile was missing in places. Did not see any bedbugs but my husband saw a cockroach in the bathroom the day we checked out! Will find somewhere else to stay the next time we visit St. Pete.

HJ on St. Pete Beach was great---best of all was the location and price---the young lady who worked the front desk was very helpful and nice. Biggest negative was the Wi-Fi did not work very well throughout the hotel---even in the lobby. She did let me use the hotel computer to buy my Busch Garden tickets and Mapquest our route. Hotel is older and a bit dusty in areas--mostly noticed this in the elevator. Overall was very happy with the location, price, and customer service.

Overall stay is good but the pool is extremely cold. They advertise a heated pool but after repeated calls, and promises to turn it on, they outright won't do it. At 3:00 in the afternoon, adults sit with their feet in the water but the pool is empty because it is extremely cold. Avoid if you find another hotel with an actual heated pool.

We have stayed at this hotel for the last 12 years. It is your basic hotel. The rooms have always been clean, and the staff is always friendly. Pool is large with lots of chairs available and the beach is right there! We always look at other hotels, but end up back here each time we come down to St. Pete.
