This was my first time vacationing in St. Pete and staying at this resort, but it definitely won't be my last! The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable, the view from the property was awesome, and we were only a short walk from the beach! Not to mention, it was very affordable! Can't wait to stay here again for my... More

This room was wonderfully comfortable and clean. Even though my stay was during the Thanksgiving holiday, housekeeping kept the room clean and well-stocked. Everything was in working order. "Katie" ,who was at check-in, was helpful and friendly. This new "find" was on my list of things to be thankful for ! :-)

Hard to find fault. Love this hotel, only hotel I would stay in on St Pete's Beach. Only strange thing is everytime we stay there I try to book for the next time and they always charge me way over what I can get online even though they say they will be cheaper, so just go online and book it....

Very pleasantly surprised by how nicely appointed and big each one bedroom was. Nice pool/dock area to lounge around. Doesn't look like much from the curbside, but you will find inside has been upgraded and is very modern. Service was excellent and helpful, and would not hesitate to stay there again.

All of our pools are open from 10am to sunset daily, so perhaps you were outside of that time frame. Hopefully next time you visit... More
