Hotel is run down but clean

Posted Aug 16, 2016
Pros: Very clean
Cons: There entire hotel needs an upgrade. You could cut the grass and trim the bushes.
Location: Good location. Within a couple of miles of shopping, Tropicana Stadium, etc.
The hotel is just old. The decor, the rooms have been well used. The walls were painted wallpaper. The bottoms of the doors had gotten wet and dry rotted/splintered. The corners of the tub were black. However, the rooms were very clean and the beds were moderately comfortable. It is in a decent location and you are fairly close to everything.

Facilities are fun - needs a facelift

Posted Aug 9, 2016
Rooms could use a remodel - they were clean but dated. The pools (yes 2) the onsite bar, playground, jet skis and bikes were all truly wonderful so we only slept in the room anyway. Great family hotel.

Most horrible place!

Posted Jul 12, 2016
Pros: Nothing!
Cons: Demolish it.
Location: Nothing.
We visited the hotel's website and everything looked nice, enticing and there were so many positive ratings - so we booked a week stay there. We checked in to a room that had bugs crawling everywhere, dirty dresser drawers, dusk covered telephone, furniture and fixtures, telephone did not work, all the power outlets were either too lose to plug anything in or not working, the "private beach" smelled and dirty. We drove 14 hours to get there, dead tired so we stayed a few days to sleep it off. As soon as we felt better, we checked to another hotel for the remaining stay. The place was a slump and the website was a scheme to get people bookings.

We are so sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. We will have the housekeeping supervisor inspect this room thoroughly . We do have a bug pest control company that maintains our rooms on a per week basis. So we are very surprised on this matter. Again, thank you for your comments. We do wish you would come back and visit.

OK place to stay

Posted Jul 11, 2016
Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful. Maintenance was quick to respond to our broken AC. Beds were comfy.
Cons: 150 characters isn't enough characters to even get started with this question.
Location: Location is near nothing. Easy access to the interstate.
For an older property it is well maintained. The room was clean and acceptable. The front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. The on property pools were clean. The "private beach" is a small strip of sand with water that smelled. That was disappointing. No way in the world I'd let my kids get wet in there. The view was beautiful. There is no free continental breakfast so we ate off property, which required a car. The onsite food was expensive so we ate elsewhere. We suffered a hot night with a broken AC the first night, but it was fixed the next day. All in all the overall stay was satisfactory for the price I paid. Will we book again? No. It is located nowhere near anything and is directly adjacent the bulkhead of the interstate off ramp. I'd say our stay could be classified as "Meh".

Nice hotel near St Pete's beach but not clean.

Posted Jun 22, 2016
Pros: The staff, the location and the size of the room.
Cons: The cleanliness of the rooms.
Location: St Pete's beach is 9 min. away. Restaurants in downtown St Petersburg were also nearby.
The staff was very attentive and helpful. The bathroom was not clean. The white blanket had stains. One of the chair in the room was broken . The leg on one of the tables was breaking off.

Hotel ok but no beach

Posted Jun 1, 2016
Pros: The food in the restaurant and the staff.
Cons: a useable beach with chairs,loungers umbrellas. Some refurbishment needed on rooms and restaurant/ inside bar.
Location: Not really near anything except by car. Only fast food places and a few stores within around half hour. 45-60 mins to a restaurant.
No real beach. Couple of cabanas but no chairs/loungers. Disappointing. Two pools and jacuzzi. Furniture old tired. Only umbrellas with table and chairs not enough if all guests want to use them. One large family of 9 took up one side of the pool area in larger pool. Pool area clean. Grounds well looked after. Staff very nice. Hotel only has one lift. Two floors. We were about 250-300 yds from lift on 2nd floor although info on my osteoarthritis was highlighted on booking. All rooms outside access like motel. Did not see any cameras or security around rooms or parking areas. There are some town houses I believe. Rooms spacious and clean, furniture old. Couple of bars one outside up stairs. Food in restaurant, which overlooked marina, really good, well cooked. Hotel needs refurbishment and updating felt tired. I heard that all the rooms were getting flatscreen TVs in the next month. The channel feed was ok.
