“Great old Florida spot”
Reviewed 26 July 2011

Wasn't able to get into our regular spot in St. Pete Beach so we gave Beach Haven a try and were very happy with the result. This small old Florida 50's style motel is right on the beach, the room we had was recently upgraded, clean and very comfortable. There is a small pool, a sun deck and a gas BBQ grill for guest use. The only issue we had was the Wi-fi didn't work on either our laptop or smartphone. If your looking for a laid back old style motel on the beach this is a great spot.

Room Tip: The Deluxe Suite has a private seating area with its own table and chairs. It's located near the...

We came to ST. Pete Beach for a few days and chose this place, thinking it was an economical choice. We were very disappointed. We had a fridge but no ice trays. We had AC but the units were old and loud. Several times one of us would get "locked" in the bathroom because the knob was not working properly. The shower head provided only a mist of sorts. When we made our reservations we were told we'd have beach towels. We could get only one. At least it was fairly clean and close to the beach. Quite noisy, too.

We stayed three nights at the Beach Haven. At first I was disappointed because the unit was small, their was little cabinet space in the kitchen area, and one of the air conditioning units was so loud I could not sleep. However, I just left that a/c unit on fan only at night, worked around the small kitchen, and learned to sit sideways on the toilet. I ended up really liking the place. It is quiet, clean, and has clothes lines to hang you swimsuits and towels on. The people were very nice, both employees and guests. Most people we met had been coming there for a very long time. I would not recommend the one bedroom units for over two people per unit, as it would be tight. I will definately stay there again, but not take a friend that needs to stay in fancy places.

We had a great experience at Beach Haven. Jovita, the manager is the best, as well as the other great employees. Jovita even worked via e-mail, phone and US mail, with our kids to surprise us with some anniversary gifts in our room when we arrived the first night. We had a 1 bedroom apartment unit and it was perfect for two people. We could have used more plug-ins near mirrors for curling iron and dryer though. There is a nice little shopping center across the street with a great grocery store. The motel is close to Crabby Bills which is a fun place. We didn't even rent a car because the trolley goes to each end of Gulf Blvd and so we rode that to get where we wanted to go. It is only $4.00 each per day and a car rental was going to be $54.00 per day. The pool is great and it is really "heated". Great trip and great stay! Thanks.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment unit. Being able to cook was great, and there is a supermarket just across the street. Its right on a beautiful beach, which was really nice. Internet worked well too.

No frills, but comfortable and romantic. Only thing that would have been better would have been a bathtub instead of just a shower.
