Great location, average hotel and value
Posted Mar 11, 2017
Our first trip to St Pete's Beach- beautiful clean beach, great for long walks in the sunset! The hotel itself is just okay- needs more updating. Strong points are a very friendly staff, nice restaurants and bars onsite with good prices compared to some of the other resorts, and free parking. However the room, which we paid for a veranda and beach view, was extremely noisy - located above the beach bar and pool area with loud music and people talking and yelling until bars closed at 3 am. The interior doors all would slam shut, so noisy inside too. Bathrooms are very small. Also, the outdoor amenities were limited compared to other resorts on the same beach. Small pool, with limited number of chairs. There were lounge chairs on the beach, but you had to pay extra. Overall, I thought the hotel was overpriced for what was delivered. However, this may just be the nature of St Petes Beach in early March season There are very few name brand resorts/ hotels at St Petes Beach. The beach is gorgeous, but mostly older, private hotels or condos, so not a lot of choices. We would stay here again, but hope to plan ahead and get a better deal.
