Great Florida Location

We've stayed here a number of times over the last 15 years, and would thoroughly recommend. Right on the pristine white beach, spacious rooms, friendly staff, close to a number of good seafood restaurants - great location.

Perfect Getaway!

We have going to St Pete Beach since 1996 and usually stay at Ho Jo's. The last few years the vibe there has completely changed and the staff is NOT freindly at all. This year the rates went sky high even though the hotel rooms are falling apart so we decided to try something new. We are so happy we did! Our first impression was great. We arrived around 9:30 am and had no problem parking onsite while waiting for our room. The location was great! You could walk to everything you needed (especially Publix right across the street). The hotel was very quiet at night which made sleeping a pleasure. Seems like mostly couples and families stay here - NO party crowd. Will be returning again soon!

Inexpensive fun stay

Great value for family fun. We went at Memorial Day week. We had 2 days of swimming pool and beach fun for one night stay before heading to Orlando Disney World. We will be back a lot of times until the kids are bored with Disney World!

Great Location on the Beach!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel. We booked a beachfront room with a balcony. The view was fantastic and we were able to see dolphins swimming by.

Wonderful beach trip

This hotel had a great location and our room overlooked the beach and gulf. It was definitely a bargain for the money but there were a few minor issues with the room. The bathroom was small and low water pressure made it difficult to take a shower. The walls were a little thin and conversations from adjoining rooms could be heard at times. Occasionally, we noticed a musty smell in the room. That said, I would stay at this hotel in the future. The resort has a very nice large pool.

Awesome family trip

We went for spring break combined with baseball team trip. Perfect location! Rooms are very clean, food is very good at the Dolphin. We will definitely book there again! So many good restaurants to walk to plus a free taxi service in St. Pete! Love this area and would definitely recommend staying at the Dolphin! We booked an ocean front room which I would highly recommend spending a little extra!
