Very good price for a hotel on the beach.

Posted Mar 27, 2015
Pros: It's on the beach, nice pool, clean, comfortable beds.
Cons: When we first came into the room there was a strong chemical smell, probably the cleaning agent they use. Fortunately, we could air it out.
Location: We love St. Pete Beach and always go the the Chill Restaurant and the Art Expo Gallery on the same street. Both are top notch.
Not as new and upscale as other hotels on St. Pete Beach that we have seen or stayed in, but it was clean and meant our needs well. The young woman at the desk was very friendly.

You get what you pay for

Cheap hotel close to beach. Good for young partying adults. Not good for family with children. Safe is small with extra charge. First night 9:20 pm security came charging in, if not for the bar your throw to stop someone. Scared the &$&? out of my husband and I. Guy said we were on a list of rooms to check? How about try knocking? Front desk called a few minutes later b/c there was some confusion about our check-in. Really?, you could not have called first then sent someone to check if there was no answer. Made me feel very uneasy. Also we were were there three nights and needed to ask for maid service after two nights b/c the pile of towels was growing, we were using pool towels for room towels. Not to mention garbage was piling up. This was our second year in a row staying here and our last. Very disappointing.

definitely not a "resort"

Posted Mar 24, 2015
While the front desk staff was very friendly, the condition of the hotel leaves something to be desired. The hallways are dilapidated and the carpet was extremely grungy. There was hair all over our unused shower and dirt all over the floor or our room. The walls and doors are also paper thin. I have stayed in much nicer hotels on St. Pete Beach with much nicer amenities and facilities for comparable prices. If you're looking for a relaxing getaway this is definitely not where you want to stay.

Pros: very well-priced with a ton of on-beach-bars and relaxing activities for fellow college students
Welcoming, helpful staff. Hotel is right on the beach with several beach bars nearby. Loved the week at Howard Johnson.

Posted Mar 14, 2015
Pros: see above
Cons: make sure room is completely cleaned. we found a pizza crust next to one of the beds. We never had pizza in the room.
Location: access to restaurants, convenience stores and shopping.
the tiki bar and pool area are fantastic. and of course the beach/ocean.

Functionality at its Best, now improved!

Posted Mar 5, 2015
Location: The beach! The Toasted Monkey beach bar with lots of activities incl music and volleyball. Larry's 88 Flavors Ice Cream across the street. Shopping.
We stayed at this hotel a year and a half ago, and liked how functional this hotel was, but thought it could be in a little better repair, and found that the furniture smelled musty. It is much improved! There was new furniture, the room was clean, there were no musty smells, everything was in good working order, the beds were very comfortable, and it had the same great functionality and friendly staff, with wonderful beach access. We love the tile entryway, the extra sink, table and chairs for 2 (not just one, like in many other hotels,) microwave and fridge. Just what we needed for a pleasant stay. If you're looking for luxury and glitz, find somewhere else. If you're looking for function and comfort, this is it. We arrived in the wee hours of the morning, and were touched to find the light on for us!
