the rooms have kitchenettes - how close is the nearest place to buy groceries?
There was a Publix next to a bakery less than a mile down the road.
There is a Publix across the street to the public St Pete Beach don't think its driveable they have tolleys that can take you near anywhere you want to go on the main drag. We always bring bags of snacks and a huge cooler with anything we need. We microwave those little breakfast sandwiches for the am. I pack fruits and never have to go to the store. If you call the motel the desk can tell you exactly the distance to the store. We usually eat dinner out, breakfast and lunch in.
