Beach Front rooms a real bargain

If you can get a beach front room its a great bargain. Parking anywhere near the beach is also a big plus. The hotel is a otherwise pretty average chain motel but the staff is very friendly.

Dockside Dave's is about 5-6 blocks and has the best Grouper sandwich in Florida.

Good value, great location

This hotel is located right on the Gulf of Mexico. On a really beautiful beach. The rooms are OK. Comfortable beds. Considering what other hotels are charging on this beach. It's a good value.

Outdated, noisy hotel

The room was cheap but that doesn't excuse poor maintenance. The shower head was rusty, furniture was outdated but at least it was clean. Pool was decent but left because people were chain smoking right next to it. The beach bar was nice with good food but if you are traveling with kids, do not stay here. It is a party atmosphere with lots of drinking, loud music till at least 11pm, and people that are stumbling drunk. The staff was friendly though. Pay a little extra money and stay somewhere else. Also, bring your own beach towels, there's are paper thin.

Baseball Spring Training Getaway

We went to the Tampa/St. Pete's area to see a Yankess spring training game. Very happy to have stayed on lovely St. Pete's Beach. The hotel was comfortable, clean and situated with beach bar/cafe out back leading right onto a pristine beach. Out front was the main drag with plenty of restaurants, nightlife and shopping.

Weekend warmth in Florida

Travelled from New York to Florida to see a Yankees spring season game and unfortunately the weather was less than warm. Fortunately the staff and surroundings at the Howard Johnson made up for it. We would love to go back to take full advantage of the beach bar, pool and beach.

We enjoyed all of our dining experiences at St. Pete's Beach. You can't seem to go wrong. We especially enjoyed Silas Dent's, Dockside Dave's, Beverly's La Croisette, and Larry's Old Fashioned Ice Cream and Gelato.

Bathroom tile needs to be cleaned !

Beds were so comfy, but the bathroom was gross... Needed deep cleaning and updating. The iron was dirty so it couldn't be used safely and the fridge was rusty on the bottom. Restaurants were awesome as well as the staff at restaurant and the hotel staff. Internet was only 2 bars... Pool area great!! I would not stay again until they update/clean the baths.
