I stay here because I saw that the reviews were okay and for the price, I was amazed. The hotel location was the best The bad thing the rooms were old and were full of Fungus. Which caused me to get sick. I tried to made it work but it was not just for me

Great location. We could walk to everything. Dali, restaurants, bars. Nice, clean room and comfy bed. Friendly staff, easy check in and out. 6th floor corner room with a great view. The restaurant next door had a great breakfast. We will stay here again without a doubt!

My friends and I stood in the room with two bedrooms. It was very clean and spacious. Both rooms had a TV with cable and wifi. Great location close to the pier and downtown. There was a coffee shop and great restaurants within walking distance and one in the hotel.

My wife loved it. Old Florida exterior and art deco interior. Loved the location and the interior. The on site restaurant was excellent. Consistently the best food in St Pete. Great location really enjoyed it as did my wife. Don't expect it to be a Hyatt and you'll love it.

Great location! Walking distance to nightlife on Beach Drive and any other area in downtown St Pete. The hotel itself is nice. Old building but decor was nice and well maintained. The bathroom was tiny! But kept in mind that it is an old building.
