This is an older hotel and the rooms are small. Bathrooms are very small. Even with that the overall experience was very nice. Things important to us are a very clean room with a great view of the Gulf, good food, proximity to the beach and all it's activities, nice people to deal with, and a fun beach bar. This...

Rooms are clean, the grounds are kept up very nicely. Its just kinda old and dated. The beds were very comfortable even the trend bed was comfortable. The breakfast buffet was terrible and way over priced.

For me, the staff was great for the most part. My favorite parts were the location and Bongos outside. However, I did not care for the breakfast buffet at all, the food tasted like it had been sitting out too long. My biggest problem with the hotel was noise. Not outside noise, but when we were in the hotel room....

With so many privately owned hotels in St Pete, we took a chance based on fellow reviews, and we were not disappointed. Yes, it may be dated, but it was pleasant. Our room had a view of the Gulf and the bay; it was clean; the bed was comfortable; and the Murphy was a novelity to our son! The staff...

The hotel offers spectacular views of the ocean if one opts for the ocean front rooms like we did. The balcony was our favorite place to sit and watch the sunset when we were not getting the free sunset shooters at Bongo. The rooms are large, tiled, and clean. Both the room and the bathroom need updating. The furniture is...
