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.

Just one night

We were there for one night and they were out of regular rooms so they upgraded us to a townhouse. Bedroom, bathroom and TV upstairs. Spiral staircase to downstairs with a TV, couch, chairs, table, microwave, dorm fridge, coffee pot and two burner cooktop. Loved it! It's a little dated, but very clean. As my boyfriend said, "This is where Don Draper vacationed back in the time!" Being able to drive up right to your room is great!

Great price, but very aged

The price and privacy is great but the rooms are very old. The pools are nice but there is no beach at all despite being right on the bay. Property sits on a sea wall. Views are great, food is ok but you have to drive a good distance to get to decent restaurants.
