A diverse mix of guests, made this feel like a destination. I will being staying here often. Beds could use an upgrade, but it isn't a deal breaker.
The Tap Room was excellent and entertaining. The room was rather drab and lacking any real direction. The room was basically only for sleeping.
I loved this hotel. It has the vibe of a bed and breakfast. The building is historic but has been beautifully decorated and remodeled. The staff was very nice and helpful. We took their shuttle to our venue and when we ready to be picked up they were there in minutes to give us a ride back. The room and bed was comfortable. The bathroom was small, but goes in line with the historic feel of the place. I would definitely stay hear again.
In addition to a nice room, it had a really good restaurant, and the staff were very accommodating!
Great location, lovely taproom downstairs with good food, great staff. Very, very spotty internet. Don't know if that was an issue just for our stay or a consistent problem. We weren't working so it wasn't much of an issue for us, but for a business traveler it could be an issue.
It's a neat hotel! Very quaint and inviting. It had a nice pool and outside bar area. I could have stayed out there all night. :) I wasn't a fan of their not being room service. It's not a deal breaker by any means but I would have preferred not to have to go down stairs and place an order, wait for it and then bring it upstairs. Otherwise, no other complaints.
rooms were fine, though bathtub was not totally clean! no phone in room, not a big deal if your have a cell phone i guess. bar area was crazy noisy at night and at breakfast.
Loved staff and decor. Attached restaurant and coffee shop had excellent food and drinks for reasonable prices. Staff there also very nice. Live music, too. Shower was a little weak/hard to get to right temp. But it was cute/antique looking.
Great little hotel! Staff was all extremely polite and courteous
The hotel is centrally located and close to many restaurants, parks, and museums.
Cool, funky decor; large outdoor patio, special events, complimentary massage We should have had a phone in our room to have food delivered to our room, should have had a free continental breakfast option versus the pay for all you can eat on weekends, and room toilet had some issues often.
After reading some reviews i was thinking i may have made a mistake. However when i got there i was very pleased yes its an older building and not your typical hotel. If you haven't been to Europe you may think this is different. However it is a typical European style hotel. The location is perfect walking distance to all the bars restaurants. I think it was great. Its a hotel to sleep not to have a vacation. i'd describe it as a clean place to crash with a great location. The night front desk blond lady and another lady are were not friendly and i'd say rude. Very different than the morning lady i think she is Thai. She was very nice compared to these night ladies. Restaurant was price for the food they served.
I loved the location. Walking distance to many shops and restaurants. Rooms weren't ready 5 minutes before check in. Older hotel with rooms to match. Small outdated bathrooms.
The location, feel, and decor of the hotel is wonderful, and I love the different options of restaurants. The staff, while friendly, seemed more apt to give excuses rather than solve problems, the hours of operation advertised contradicted the actual hours of each resturant, and although the website claims parking is available, the hotel does not actually have their own parking.
The staff was beyond welcoming and so kind, and the location couldn't be more perfect. The room was small but it was the perfect size for what we needed! Loved it! The bed was a little stiff, but definitely nothing worth complaining about. Nothing but good things to say about the Ponce De Leon!
Going in with low expectations is the key to a satifying stay at the Ponce de Leon. More unimproved that the term "Botique" would suggest, this is the destination for the seasoned traveller who has endured rough edges and no amenities for a great location. The desk staff was superb but the housekeeping is the worst with no coffee supply or toiletries restock after check-in and no sheet change in four nights. All in all, it's a great way to be in the best part of downtown, save a few bucks and relive old mempries of the seedier side of that trip to China.
This place is a complete joke and a scam. I booked a luxury room with a queen bed and bath. I drove 2 hours from fort Myers and when I arrived there to check in they told me that I was being moved to their "Sister Property" . When we walked up to the "sister property" that was about 5 blocks away it was a house not even a hotel. The room that the lady escorted us to had holes and nails hanging out Where pictures were at some point, the bed was a pull out, A microwave sitting on top of a desk, and she gave me a key to the PUBLIC BATHROOM! And the Ponce De Leon was going to try and charge me the same price that I had originally booked for. I demanded my money back and left instantly.
This hotel is in a great location for anyone that is wanting to go to a Rays game. The parking is confusing and the staff was not very friendly or professional.
Very clean. The downtown St. Petersburg location. No free parking: From Friday evening to Monday morning you can find free parking spot near parking meters in a few blocks radius around hotel. Hot water is changing temperature from warm to cold.
Location is great for the downtown area, waterfront, restaurants & Bars Bare bones minimum. Feels like you're staying in a random apartment. Bring plenty of booze to get liquored up before you go to bed. Just weird. Random decor.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room is small but nice. The bathroom was also small but good, except the sink has separate spigots for hot and cold.
Nice size room for a boutique hotel, in a fantastic location on every growing St Pete dt. Farmers market on Saturday is across the street. Outdated bathrooms, and as mentioned the beds were a little uncomfortable. Hallways were a little shabby.
Well maintained & tastefully decorated. Staff is personable, helpful & professional. Lovely view of the bay from the 6th floor & great location in general.
clean, comfortable, good value
The staff was accommodating. Occasional musty smell most likely associated with humid weather.
The staff was very courteous and friendly, and we enjoyed the daily continental breakfast, which had a wide selection, and included fresh fruits, yogurt and orange juice. The pool is adjacent to the hotel at the front facing the car park, which doesn't give guest much privacy
This was our 2nd stay at this Hampton Inn. Amazing hot breakfast! Clean, comfortable room with plenty of counter space. Friendly staff. The pool and hot tub area has beautiful landscaping. I'd recommend staying at this hotel.
The lobby. when you first walk it is breathtaking and you feel like yeah I'm fine dining and dropping 140 on a night just to relax ...until you get on the elevator and by that evening the regret sets spending that much money on underwhelming temporary digs 140 bucks I would have expected something a little more upscale. Mold smell, thin walls, Bad lighting . I saw a black fly looking very similar to a full grown bed bug, but I can't confirm. it had the feel of a cheap hotel just with better sheets. I paid 35 more for smoking and when I got there they had no idea of my reservation and I got jolted out of 35 bucks . Thanks Kayak . The front desk was pleasant and professional.
Et flott hotell, men svært koselig betjening. God seng og fint bad. Gangavstand til strand. St Pete beach er en flott sandstrand. Hotellet er særdeles barnevennlig, med mange fasiliteter for barn. Jeg ble innlosjert på Breckenridge, på den siden hvor kjøletårnene står. Det anbefales ikke for de som ikke er vant til lyden av disse på natten.
People at the desk, restaurants, and bars were all very nice. Upon checkin we received a room on the second floor with a poor view and the staff was nice enough to move us to a room on the 9th floor that had a much nicer view. The hotel is located right on the beach and has many options for food and drink. We stayed for four days and came down for a wedding. The beach wedding was very nice and the reception in the ballroom on the 10th floor was a blast. We had a really nice stay at the hotel. This hotel although perfectly located could use some upgrading. Many of the rooms have two beds. A king and a double bed. Nice for families but a bit odd for a couple. Would have rather had a couch or larger desk, etc... The coffee service in the room is pretty lousy. Lousy coffee and then those little packs of one sugar, one artificial sugar, one creamer, a napkin and a stir stick. Drives me nuts. So I went out and bought coffee, filters, and sugar. The pool is sort of small but works. Parking is very crowded. This place does tons of weddings, so maybe that is why.
Spinning restaurant, beach front location ! The hallways were not cleaned. They were dirty. The decor of the hotel is outdated.
Friendly staff, right on the beach, many eating options and beach is beautiful.
The beds are super comfy and the staff is great. The view and proximity to the ocean are spectacular. Nice pool area and Bongos restaurant/bar is great. It's a bit outdated and could use a facelift. Also had an issue of cleanliness but it was promptly corrected when brought to their attention.
Amazing location. Loved the private balcony. Beds were great. Bathrooms are very small and could be just a bit cleaner.
Room was nice. Bar under window open till 300am .loud music. 600am maintenence people start loud machinery. Crazy. No sleep.
We loved the rooms ! Everything was new and updated, including the floorin . All the rooms had balconies and the all white bed sets make you feel like you're royalty. The pool is somewhat small. But I like that it's open and not really enclosed. The 6th floor hallway smelled a little musky but the room was perfect !
Location of the hotel is good. Bongo bar food & drinks are good. Spinners restaurant/revolving restaurant food was excellent. Excellent view from the revolving restaurant. Got to see the fire works all around. Friendly staff. Bed was comfortable We got a partial ocean/beach view which had a big repair crane obstructing the view. Rooms are old even though the staff keeps on saying they have updated...it's not! Bathrooms need an update. Shower tap was reversed with hot & cold water. Price paid for the hotel room was not worth it.
The best price for beach front. Room was dirty, stain on sheets, hair on bathroom floor and in shower. Breakfast food not the good for the price but iHop is across the street.
I was recently in a wedding at this hotel and decided to stay there as well. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Wedding went off without a hitch and it was a beautiful location.
Location location location! Great food and exceptional beach bar / restaurant. Old hotel. Needs more updates
I love the restaurant that they have on the roof top. I also love the views. N/A
The staff was great. They even comped our parking because it was my husband's birthday. N/A
There was no hot water the evening we checked in Had to wait until morning to shower
Clean, good location. Can't have a rollaway bed in a room with two double beds. Have to go to front desk for ice!!!
The location When it stormed I had to park in a bank parking lot around the corner which made it for a very undesirable walk. When I pulled into the bank parking lot the attendant refused to let me park stating he had no idea what I was talking about. 2nd issue. The first front desk woman that checked us in was amazing. So helpful and nice! You could tell she really enjoys her job. The front desk girl who checked us out was horrible. She checked us out on Sunday August 31st. I asked the lady a couple questions about the area and she couldn't answer anything and appeared to not wanted to be bothered. I understand you have a concierge but he wasn't available. Please educate your guests a little about the area. Like recommendation on a nice restaurant. 3rd issue. The room was huge but I stepped in something that was very slimy. It appeared to be maple syrup which was all over the floor. I have stayed there before and had a better experience
Location is good, 8min to Pier. The supermarket and some food store is just besides the hotel,very convenient. The room is old,and the staff sometimes forget to change the towel. The dryer is very very dirty,not like a 5 star hotel.
Shuttle service This was not a great hotel for family visits. Also, we had to pay extra for everything - parking was $16 a night , and for the price of a room it would have been nice to have some form of complimentary breakfast. I guess the more you pay, the more you have to pay. They made a big point of letting us know that the ice was complimentary, which made me laugh because where in this country is it not?
Offered shuttle bus to Tropicana Field to attend baseball game. Helpful staff (especially Edith Odonez) Nothing. Great experience
Staff was very welcoming and this had the feeling of a luxury business hotel. We needed a King with a pull out couch, and after a problem with the first room we were upgraded to a Jr. Suite with a separate bedroom. This made the stay very comfortable--I wish we had stayed here more nights. This hotel is tucked in a business park area with not many cars passing by. There isn't much around this hotel, which might be why it felt so quiet.
When there was no Sweet N Low in the room for coffee and they ran out downstairs; we let the front desk know and due to housekeeping would have been 20 minutes; the girl from the front desk brought it to our room herself within 5 minutes. Requested pool towel replacement for an evening of swimming and it was fairly busy; housekeeping was out there within 5 minutes stocking up. Really good accommodations. This Hilton goes out of their way to make your stay pleasant! P.S. - Publix and a few restaurants were right in the park, which was an added bonus!
Shortly after check-in a maintenance man came in unannounced and started working on the toilet while my wife and I were trying to relax; he kept leaving and coming back because his manager kept calling him away. Two hours later, after he finished the job, it took 3 calls to the front desk to have a staff member come clean up the toilet water, rocks, and whatever else managed to end up on our bathroom floor. Even after someone came to clean, the bathroom was still covered in toilet repair gunk. There were wrappers and cups found in drawers from previous visitors, hair left in the "clean" towels we were issued, and stains all over the blankets. Overall it is the worst experience I have ever had, it was worse than sketchy one-star hotels I have stayed at. The staff was very unprofessional, things should be taken care of before the room is issued out; the place left my wife and I constantly feeling gross, the cleaning people were terrible; and I hated every moment I was there .
Liked that there was resteraunt onsite Having a group of athletes there taking up jacuzzi
We did not come for the resort, but because it was near Eckerd College. Facility seemed a bit dated, but well maintained. Rooms were clean, quiet, staff was friendly, and the amenities seemed extensive, but we were just there for a quick overnight. I would stay here again.
Safe and easy to score a room for a last minute booking. Rooms are dark and in the center of a parking lot so they're loud.
Location good, staff very helpful. Wifi worked well. The room was very damp and smelled like it hadn't been used in awhile. Blow dryer in room did not work and looked as thought it had burned up way before my stay. No extra blow dryers to use. The restaurant was not open for coffee in the early morning before my departure and, although there was a coffeemaker provided in the room, the coffee was really bitter.
Great to have marina available for our boat. We were there for 3 days and 2 of the 3 mornings we had no hot water. Rooms could be much cleaner and linens didn't feel clean. Stains present on linens.
The place needs to be updated.
Location on the water and right off the highway. Facilities are a little run down.
I loved the view it was very nice. The staff was friendly. The smell of the bay was gross it smelled like a septic or rotten eggs. I know that's not the resorts fault but I don't think I could stay there again is was very over powering.
Restaurant had great food. Very helpful , friendly staff. Room could use a few updates but staff cleaned well.
The entire staff was extremely accommodating. The restaurant at the hotel was very good and very nice. We loved the view. More elevators would have been helpful for my handicapped mother in law.
The front desk staff was really great. When we found a roach in our room, they bent over backwards to move us. The pools are also very nice. The view of the water was amazing. The fact that I found a roach in my room and had to be moved was inconvenient. Their "beach" was disgusting and very small. It was definitely misleading advertisement. It was covered in seaweed and overall was just not an enjoyable area. The intersection to turn onto the road the road to get to the hotel is very confusing.
Comfy bed, spacious room, abundant breakfast with takeout bag, friendly helpful staff, nice extras--coffee, drinks, and snacks in the lobby throughout the day; printed out google maps. Being able to hear the people in the adjoining room through the connecting doors was the only complaint.
This is hands down the best hotel, for the money. It is absolutely awesome for anything near this price. Trying to think of anything negative and there isn't any. Just go ahead and book it. This is a sure bet.
The room was quite spacious and amazing: we had a kitchenette with a full size refrigerator, a small, glass-top stove, a dishwasher, and a microwave. The TV was set up to swivel around to the living room-type area or to be viewed from the king size bed (which was unfathomably comfortable). The water in the shower stayed a constant temperature the entire time, which is always nice. We're pretty sure we had a wheelchair-accessible room, so that may account for some of the roominess (as well as the hand rails in the bathroom). Breakfast the first day was ham and cheese omelets, sausage patties, and home fries one day, and scrambled eggs, bacon, and sausage the next, which is in addition to the usual assortment of breads, bagels, muffins, waffle makers, coffees, teas, yogurts, juices, milk, cereals, etc. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, they do "socials" where they serve complimentary meals, wine, and beer. We only ate there one of the two nights, which was Italian or Polish sausages on buns and hamburgers and a modest salad bar. The pool looked amazing, but we stayed in February during one of the coldest weeks this winter so far, so we didn't use it. The location would have been great if we had been in town for a Tampa Bay Rays game; Tropicana Field is easily within walking distance. Our phone rang at 1:30 AM or so the first night, and no one at reception seemed to know why the next morning. Also, the hotel is U-shaped, and our room was on the far side of the U from reception (minor inconvenience, though). Other than those two minor things, there really isn't much to complain about. I may book a block of rooms here for guests for my wedding.
We loved the free taco bar.
It seemed like a lovely place; nice room, nice pool, beautiful beach view. We were near a roomful of partying college or high school kids; we ended up flushing the $200 we paid for our room and moving to another hotel so we could sleep.
Rooms were clean, hotel lobby, bar, and pool area always clean. Hotel staff were always friendly, courteous and helpful. Ice machine on our floor was broken for the length of our stay
Being right on the beach was awesome! I had three grandchildren all under the age of 11 and I didn't want to have to cross the street to get to the beach. The room was comfortable and the kids loved it. They closed the pool at 10 in the morning and the kids had to get out which disappointed them greatly. They were cleaning the pool which I thought was an odd time to do that.
The staff were amazing. That's the only positive. Overall, the amount of money I spent for a 2 night stay had me feeling ripped off. The place is tired & dated. Not worth it.
The view was absolutely amazing! You really are ON the beach and the pool/restaurant/bar/live music/ rooms were all 10 out of 10's! Not to mention the water sports kiosk right out back where water activities are is your fingertips! We will continue to come back to this resort time and time again... it's hard to beat how beatuiful, relaxing and amazing one place can be. Not to mention on-shore you're conveniently located near even more restaurants, grocery stores and attractions. Best Spot in Florida I've ever stayed. The only negative is that our check in was scheduled for 11:00am - and when we arrived to check in they told us they wouldn't be checking anyone in until 1:00pm.. Although it was a bit disappointing, the staff was gracious enough to let us park, help us put our bags in the back - and encouraged us to hit the beach/pool/ and bar right outside until we could check into our room! What's not to love about that?!?
Not quite enough parking.
The beach and pool The staff were very rude, then my spouse had to park outside
Beachfront The staff was rude and not accommodating, I had booked two night but had 2 reservations (1 night stay per reservation) instead of combining the two reservations I had to check out and then check back in. The shower was awful, almost no water pressure and the valves didn't close all the way so a steady stream would leak throughout the day. Half of the power outlets worked, which is frustrating when you are trying to get ready in the bathroom and can't blow dry your hair. The only nice thing about this place was the beach access, but it's right next to the public beach access and I'd rather stay elsewhere and walk to the public beach than stay here again.
Beach location and quality are super!!!! Beach
Friendly staff, clean, great view on the beach, amazing sunsets, good food and beach bar. Convenient to other beachfront restaurants/bars also. We always look forward to coming here! The barstools at Flippers are pretty wobbly and uncomfortable and we'd be more prone to hang out longer if there were live music more often...but the view is unbeatable and Amanda makes great Miami Vices and Bloody Marys!
Awesome location and everything you need if you are looking for affordable accommodation The wifi didn't really work so well.
We loved our stay! Wish we could have stayed longer! Would definitely recommend. Tub didn't drain well. But everything else was excellent!!
Directly on a beautiful beach. Easy to find. Everything you need is in the resort.
beach attendants very helpful and accommodating, especially Earnie Extra charges in the last few years such as parking and newspapers placed at doors in the morning.
Great staff- helpful, cheerful, funny, kind. way to soft beds and pillows- food prices are very high for what you pay for high priced room, and would have been nice receiving free coffee when ordering meals.
Great value. Beautiful sunset. Too far from downtown
Luxurious and relaxing
I was local and my AC went out so I stayed at this hotel. Very nice and comfortable. A little expensive for a Tuesday!
The location is close to restaurants, bars, museum, and colleges. Unfortunately that attracts groups of people that are there to party and stay up all night. After we discovered that our neighbors brought their own stereo with sub-woofer and invited all their friends to hang out in their room, we tried to move rooms. We were not moved and had to call the front desk more than 20 times over the next couple of hours to try and resolve this issue. No luck. The front desk was completely incapable of resolving this issue. I guess 20 year old college students that work at the hotel aren't capable of controlling the behavior of their guests. if you're lucky enough to have quiet neighbors, the hotel is alright. If not, then be prepared for a long night.
Such great value. Spacious room, beautiful breakfast and friendly staff
Staff was very friendly. Great location. I will definitely stay here again.
Perfect location the staff was outstanding from the valet to the front desk. The lobby hugged me from the time I walked in til the time I left. I would stay again.
My daughter and I recently stayed while she was on break from College. We had an excellent experience. Everyone was friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our accommodations. The valet service was excellent . Loved the bedding. We will return! The bathroom could use a fan. The bathroom sink drained slowly.
Clean super white bedding, free breakfast and walking distance to everything! The $14 valet parking fee!
The bed was comfortable. One of the best blankets I've encountered. Can't think of anything.
Great aesthetics and friendly staff The bed wasn't all that comfy and light shined in all around the door. Pillows should be full sized instead of those little ones. We used the pillow shams.
It's a nice clean well located hotel. Rooms are a little tight, bathrooms are small, no tub just standing shower. Small TV actually I guess my only complaint is that it is very compact, but this might not be an issue for most people. At the price point it seems tiny to me.
Hotel was well maintained. Room was a good size and the location was great. The pool area needs work. For being in Florida I feel if you are going to have a pool area it should be inviting but it looked like no one ever used it. Disappointed.
location; Near everything, but just far away enough from the street noise from beach street restaurants and bars. Staff: Friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Is an old building turned into a hotel: rooms are small (uncomfortable for a party of 4). Bathroom is TINY. Beds are okay. BREAKFAST You are better off walking down to Beach street and enjoying a great breakfast outdoors for the same price.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Beautiful, spacious, and clean Not new & fancy outside.
Adorable hotel in a great location with very helpful and friendly staff. The beds were super comfortable, the bathroom was perfect size, the A/C worked great and wasn't loud at all. For the price, it's a steal! Our stay was perfect. The only thing I that wasn't way above expectations was the water pressure in the shower.
Hotel employee was quite wonderful. She constantly made sure my needs were taken care of. Outstanding customer service. The bathroom was quite small. Very hard to use the toilet when it's pressed up against the shower. We ended up using the bathrooms in the main lobby.
The location and staff Didn't stay long enough to not like anything
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Great location Smells
all the staff were extremely helpful. The valet parkers were fast and friendly. The hotel was quiant, chic, and great location. Everything was on the money.
Very large room with kitchen and large closet Bugs, no view, loud beach bar, aggressive parking attendant, mediocre front desk, commercial type toilet, old shower fixtures, overall uncleanliness
We came with a few other families with their grown children. Love the pools with food and drink service and the entertainment is fantastic at Jimmy B's! Check in was after 4pm but they gave us certificateso to use at Jimmy B's which made it well worth the inconvenience.
Awesome staff, great bar, and the location is the best on the beach for entertainment and people Kind of trashy
It is so close to the beach and we'll placed on the string of resorts.Jmost everything is wishing walk it distance and theres a 7 11 right across the street. I had little bugs in my room the whole stay. Not bed bugs but small insects and I was on the top floor. Also everything in my room just felt dirty. The floor was dirty, the corners of the room had visible dust and the Bathroom fixtures were dirty. Lime and calciumcaked on butt the sink faucet and the shower head. Shower water pressure was bad and any time a toilet was flushed in the hotel it was scaulding hot! Mattresses were pretty bad too.
Location Too noisy at night. Rooms old and outdated.
Right on the beach, close to everything, friendly staff A little dated, but all of the hotels nearby on St. Pete Beach seemed to be this way. Lots of kids playing all the time in the courtyard, lots of adults down at Jimmy B's Bar & Grill.
The room and staff were wonderful. Gary the entertainer at Jimmy Bs was awesome. The food was wonderful. The grounds were beautiful. Richard at the front desk was more than hospitable. Everything was just perfect
I liked that it seemed like the center of activity on the beach. Jimmy B's was right there on the beach, grab a dri K listen to the ocean or the band. The courtyard was nice to have chairs outside your room to sit and relax. Parking was tight and often almost full.
Near beach. Very Noisy. Dirty carpet.
Easy access to beach Broken lamp Dead battery in TV remote
I love everything about Beachcomber!!
Perfect place for a getaway. On the beach. Live music at Jimmie B's. Heated pools. Great wait staff.
Very good atmosphere, nice and kind staff, breakfast served not on plastic. Interesting design inside, home atmosphere. Loud A/C
great hotel, great welcome the ac in the room was a bit loud
Friendly Staff. Individual Design, Cosy and Comfy Atmosphere.
location many issues with reservations using booking.com. staff was rude about the extra day we needed. will not return
Amazing location, cool bar, laid back environment
I stayed by the pool right on the beach I had to pay$60 extra to have a decent room
It was a rip off to have an additional charge of $22.60 per day for no justifiable reason? We received no special service, nor did the resort offer any exceptional amenities? The overall experience was mediocre and I would not recommend it to my friends or family.
Love the decor and amenities. Overall...a great stay.
Liked the beachy/surfer "feel" of the location. I travelled in January and the weather wasn't great (windy and cold) plus there is some construction going on, mostly in the main lobby I believe. This really didn't impact my trip, as I was there for a friends wedding taking place literally just down the road. For the money and location, great value. I'd love to come back here and enjoy the pool/beach during the summer! Loud people next door and above my room - or perhaps the walls are just a little thin? The room could use some new paint and a few non-essential updates.
Postcard Inn was what we were looking for in a quick getaway over the holidays. We had a king size garden view room. We were on the top 2nd level, no elevator. The main hotel entry was nicely decorated, lots of hangout places, a big table with games (my daughter loved the 3D tic TAC toe). There was also a photo booth. The Boathouse was a restaurant attached to the lobby...no room service. The garden had lots of lounging places too. There was an outdoor pool table and ping pong. At night the garden was lit with lanterns, and there was a fire pit. There is a snack shack next to the beach bar which is on St. Pete's beach. The pool supposed was heated and looked awesome, but was closed. The pool was a major reason for choosing this hotel. I wanted a heated pool as we were traveling in December. When I confirmed over the phone before booking the pool was heated; the receptionist said the pool would be closed for the first dayof our stay...however, we could use the pool at the next door hotel. The PostCard Inn pool was being filled when we arrived, so I looked forward to hanging out there and happily used the heated pool next door at "BeachComber". Unfortunately, during our entire stay of 4 days, the pool never opened. This was extremely dissapointing. On the third day heading over to BeachComber's pool, I was hassled by their maids for using their pool, they called their supervisor to confirm that we did not have access to their pool, but let us go swimming there anyway. The low was 40F one night we were there. So in anticipation, I turned up the thermostat to 75F that nice. I am fairly confident the heat wasn't working...because it was very cold. The next night was again cold, and I cranked up the thermostat to its maximum...88F and still was cold. The rooms had high ceilings, were cutely decorated but the bathrooms were tiny. Also, there were wooden blinds that could close, but no curtains to be pulled over...just decorative curtains. There was a TV and padded wooden chair. Between the room/bathroom there was a closet/dressing room...it was very tiny, but had hangers on one side and shelving on the other. The Boathouse restaurant was overpriced and wasn't really very good for dinner. We had a hamburger and shrimp tacos. Breakfast was nice though - biscuits and gravy and an omelette.
I was really looking forward to this weekend, in fact I proposed to my girlfriend. My room's AC didn't work the entire stay. Then instead of compensating me they charged me a resort fee. I got charged extra for staying in an uncomfortable room.
We found our stay to be very relaxing, clean. Staff was great as well as amenities! All kinds of activities onsite. Plus.. It's on the beach and close to local attractions and thanks to their 'in-room' book, we went deepsea fishing and dolphin watching. Loved the decor and atmosphere! PCI needs more ice machines, that's it!
Loved the lobby full of games , books and yummy coffee
Affordable, location on the beach, and staff were all great.
Very nice place to stay , probably avoid holiday weekends , if you are traveling with families , staff very friendly , always security staff present , outside pool area seemed to be very clean and maintained. Staircase and walls are In need of fresh coat of paint , a little grungy .. Floors in the room never cleaned , sand beneath our feet.. Housekeeping needs to be addressed , location very nice . The rooms seemed a bit warm , Ac is centrally controlled , had to be moved to another room, definitely adjusted the Ac at night as it seemed to be very uncomfortable for sleeping .. Prob hotel watching costs , instead of guest satisfaction .. Keep your eye on additional fees and taxes when booking rooms ..
ALTHOUGH THE HOTEL WAS PRETTY GOOD THERE WAS SOME QUESTIONABLE AREAS IN CLOSE PROXIMITY OF THE HOLTEL THAT I DID NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE WALKING BY THERE IS SOME GREAT RESTURANTS IN THE AREA BETTER IF YOU DRIVE TO THEM ALSO MY BIGGEST PROBLEM I HAD WITH THIS LOCATION WAS THE FACT THAT THE MANDATORY VALET PARKING ACTUALLY COST YOU EACH NIGHT YOU STAYED THERE THE HOTEL MANAGEMENT MADE NO EFFORT TO MAKE SURE YOU WERE AWARE OF THIS UNTIL YOU GOT YOUR FINAL CHECK OUT BILL WHEN I QUESTIONED THIS I WAS TOLD THAT THERE WAS NOTICES IN YOUR ROOM AND IN THE LOBBY WHICH WHEN I RECHECKED I FOUND NO NOTICES ANYWHERE SO BE PREPARED FOR A SURPRISE ON YOUR BILL
This hotel was great overall. Nothing super special, but a clean, comfortable, central "home-base" for a vacation stay. The elevators were really sketchy. One was really old and creaky. My boyfriend got stuck in the other one for 20 minutes with sporadic electricity and physical jolting. When he finally made it off, he went to the front desk. They only gave him a neutral statement a la "glad you made it off." No apology, no indication that it would get fixed. He said they didn't even seem surprised by the incident.
loved everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! too bad they dont take small dogs
Very nice location, kindness of the staff
Everything was great. From easy check-in, to the breakfast, to helping us figure out the easiest ways to get where we wanted to go the staff went above and beyond in every respect. Also, the property was absolutely beautiful inside and out and was in a great location.
nothing very small room -crap breakfast-total ripoff.
