Filth

This hotel should have 1 or 2 stars. It was filthy and hadn't been cleaned well.

Great Christmas Get Away

Our first time in Florida. The staff was courteous, friendly and told us about local attractions and one of a kind places to eat. Although we were disappointed that this hotel wasn't on the beach, we were able to find several beaches to walk and enjoy. The weather wasn't beach weather anyway! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Although this is an older resort, the staff definitely works hard to make your stay enjoyable and everything you are looking for!

Fine, cheap option

Pretty much what it looks like. Don't get excited about the beach.

Good value and location for the money.

Nice location. Very nice staff. Hotel is older, but grounds are nice. Restaurant is good and beach bar is very nice. Only problem experienced were a few tiny ants in our room.

Perfect for relaxing

We arrived looking for a place to relax for a couple of days. This was the perfect place to go. The rooms are older but well looked after which is what we were expecting. The beach being so close is great and the pools are well kept.

July4th vacation

The hotel is on the bay so the water is not something you would want to swim in. And it is smelly. If you do not have a boat it is not an ideal place to stay. The pool area is nice and the rooms were just okay.

Wish we could have stayed longer

We had a busy 3-day trip to St. Petersburg, so we did not have much time to enjoy the amenities, but we did enjoy one of the pools and the Nepa Hut Breach Bar. The room was clean and well maintained, and the staff was courteous.

From the moment we walked in and asked about the private beach the staff kinda giggled and said the don't know why the website says that it is very small area covered with seaweed and garbage broken glass little boy cut foot there and for 6 days you could still see blood on seawall room was very outdated Ac OK at best from first day after walk by beach my ankles and calf's were bit about 100 times HORRIBLE and website says breakfast listed under amenities with surcharge next to it THATS A LIE pay for it just like lunch and dinner manager says surcharge means you pay he was a joke didn't see anything wrong with listing it under amenities stay clear of this place BAD DEAL
