We stayed at this hotel for two nights (July 31 & August 1, 2015). We live less than an hour away from the hotel and wanted a place to call our "home away from home" when we wanted to go to the beach. We found it here! The location is wonderful-right on the Gulf beach! The staff is very friendly...

Hotel was clean and staff very helpful, rooms are good and clean, however the internal decoration needs a face lift, that being said we had a great time, the beach was clean and racked once a week and the sunset was great

This hotel was a huge disappointment. My friends and I stayed on the 2nd floor with a beach view. The couch located by the elevator was stained all across the back. The hallway carpet was also very stained and the hallway smelled terrible! The bathroom walls in the room had several stains. Above the sliding glass door was in such...

We checked in on Sunday 7\26\15 and left on Friday 7\31\15. We had a great time. The hotel was nice. Great Pool, it felt like we had the pool to ourselves all week until Thursday when it got busy. Staff was friendly and helpful. There is a musty smell in the hall way, but it is not that bad and...

This hotel had a great location close to the beach. The service at the hotel was poor and the rooms on the first floor had a terrible smell. I will not recommend this hotel to my friends. There are better options at this price range.

We checked in yesterday 7/27/2015 and leave thankfully tomorrow. Our room 323 has receding water in shower as well as a ring around the tube. The sink also has a back up problem. The hallways reek of bug spray when you walk through them and the towels smell of maple syrup and are dingy beyond your belief. Do Not Stay...

I stayed here with a friend for the night while in town to watch a Tampa Bay Rays game, who play nearby in St Pete. This was a nice hotel, right on the beach, with plenty of parking and restaurants nearby. The pool and beach were nice and the rooms were a good size. The decor is a little dated...

We recently had a high school reunion at the Dolphin.... SERVICE: To say that the service was less than desirable would be an understatement. The young African American woman at the front desk was the only person at the desk who was friendly. ALL of our classmates complained about the other people who worked at the desk and registration. The...

I arrived at noon for my son's 20th birthday. When I checked in I was told our room wasn't quite ready yet but I would be called as soon as it was. I had cupcakes in a cooler in my car but figured it wouldn't be more than 2 hours and then be fine. Unfortunately it was raining of an...
