“Cheap but very cheerful!”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

Wanted a reasonably priced, short get away and after lots of promises of cheap rentals which once you've added taxes and cleaning bill on top turn out to be extortionate, I discovered this little gem. Ideally situated a block from the beach in one direction and the main street for shops, restaurants etc in the other. We had a mini suite with a clean well appointed kitchenette, lounge area and a separate bedroom with king size bed. Both areas had its own AC unit, excellent when the temps sore, which they always do in St Pete's! Will definitely book again and would recommend it to anybody who wants to stay in this lovely area but does not have the superstar budget!

Room Tip: We stayed in roon 206, a mini suite at the back of the motel next to the second pool.

The Dolphin is a good place to stay if on a budget. It is not pricey, relatively clean and a two minute walk to the beach.

Don't expect the Four Seasons, it could use a little paint and some work but an okay place to stay for the money.

Room was kind of out dated. Furnished with odds and ends.
Wireless internet didn't work. Ac never got cold enough. Tiny ants running around on the counter. The good points, lots of parking, very close to the beach, lots of places to eat near by.
Staff, friendly.

We've been staying at the Dolphin a few times a year for a few years now. We don't even bother with any other hotels/motels in St. Pete Beach. We like the location a lot, and we love taking over the back-side of the motel with all our friends. Having a second pool back there is awesome, since we usually have it all yo ourselves. The front pool is heated, which is nice on the winter, but we prefer the cooler back pool in the summer months.
The rooms are very nice. We've had a bunch of them, and they're all a little different, but all have little kitchens and places to sit and hang out. It's very clean. The beds are a little on the firm side, but I slept fine.
It's a short walk to a lovely spot on the beach, plus there are good places to eat within walking distance too. Like I said, this is our go-to beach motel. We love it. I bet you will too.

Been comming to St pete Beach for 30 plus years and this is one of the best places ever. A variety of room choices, two pools, BarBQ grills on site, the beach two minutes away,many restaurants and sports bars and shopping within walking distance. A family friendly place,very clean with reasonable rates. The staff is helpful and accomodating and the manager,Christie is always there to see that your stay is enjoyable and to assist in anyway she can. If your going to St Pete Beach you should check out the Florida Dolphin. We ' ve been there 4 times and will be back for sure.

Room Tip: Talk to Christie. She will help you

We have been staying here for the last 5 years or so. It is perfect for us ... we were 5 adults .. and with kitchen facilities it was great. Love the short walk to the beach ... close to shops ... and everyone is very friendly and accomodating. Had to cancel last year right before our trip due to illness and they were great! Made a dificult time very easy for us. Lookiing forward to our trip this year.
