Expedia messed up my reservation so I was being overcharged for a night I was not staying. Expedia took no responsibility for lying and had horrible customer service. Although it was not the hotel's fault, Rita and Victoria were amazing and rectified the situation immediately. Can't thank them enough. They offered great customer service and went above and beyond.

I spent many hours inquiring about Hotels on St. Pete Beach that would meet the criteria that was needed in order to take my sister for an enjoyable weekend on the beach.

We stayed here last week for Friday, Sat and checked out Sunday. It was smaller, older and I was worried about some of the reviews bc I am kind of a hotel snob. I was pleasantly surprised! For one: this is an indoor access hotel. Meaning, take your elevator up, and you access through the indoor hall, not motel style... More

Wonderful view and great location on the beach. The hotel was old and worn. Our room is serious dirty (see pictures). There was no shower curtain, behind the door was dirty and there was black hair everywhere. There was also cups for coffee but they are so dirty.

We stayed there on Memorial Day weekend. We had a pool and beach view. Sunsets were incredible. The rooms are spacious, very clean, also they do not charge for parking. There is a beach bar with music, also a resturant. Food is good and reasonable. This is our second time staying there and we would go back again. Location is... More

Microwave, good size mini fridge and coffee maker in the room. Plenty of outlets. Hotel asks quests help with conserving water! Nice! Thanks to Georgetta! Such a kind person!”
