Directly on the beach with a large, clean pool. Front desk staff are friendly and helpful. The beds are clean and comfortable and every room has a balcony. Food and service at the onsite restaurant, The Toasted Monkey, is great.
We were told that the original owners passed away, that their children are now in charge and that there was a management company change a couple of years ago. This might explain the decline of this hotel. This hotel used to be a little treasure - furnishings were a bit outdated, but it was always clean and well kept. The new owners/management company need to start spending on maintenance - and they need to have someone checking equipment in the rooms. We noted that the hallways had been painted and that broken tiles were being replaced - good. However, in our room the hairdryer did not have any guards on the front or back - a real hazard - and the coffee maker stopped working after a couple of days. On two occasions the housekeepers took away our used towels, but did not replace them - they also neglected to replace toilet rolls. We had to ask for the carpet to be vacuumed after five days of waiting for it to be done. The housekeeping certainly is not what is once was. Perhaps some more training would help. If one likes an upscale hotel, this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for a clean, budget hotel right on the beach then HoJo's is worth giving try. And if you are in St. Pete's do try the new French bakery/deli, Cafe Soleil, in the Publix plaza (on the corner beside the Italian restaurant).... recently opened - all croissants, pastries, bread, quiche etc. are made on the premises and are absolutely delicious! A little bit of France in St. Pete's - magnifique!

This visit Cici and Nina greeted me upon my arrival with an enthusiastic greeting along with two beautiful smiles. This is the personality of the entire staff at the HoJo St. Pete. On the beach. Beautiful pool. Two Awesome bars, one on the beach, one on the street. Located in the middle of town. I come here about once every 5-6 weeks and won't stay anywhere else. Truly feel welcome and appreciated. Thanks again to the staff, including Nina and Cici!

This facility is dated but clean. Nice pool and the Toasted Monkey (yummy!) is one of the best places on the beach according to our 22+ year old grandkids. Staff was friendly and helpful. We will come and stay there again - can't beat the price but the best was the location! On the beach!

The room was over 100$ a night and not worth it. It was dirty and outdated. Furniture had stains on it and the floor turned our feet black. The bathroom toilet barely flushed after 2 minutes of holding the handle and the grout in the bathroom was black. The room looked like it was from the 70's. We did like the toasted monkey on site. They had good food. We couldn't find towels for the pool because they were in the front of the hotel with no signs and no one to help direct you. They hotel al,so had problems with guests because their computer modem was stollen. Not a safe environment. Probably won't stay here ever again.

Dear Emily K. The Howard Johnson St. Pete Beach would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review. Providing our guests with a quiet, clean and comfortable room is our number one goal, and we obviously fell short this time. For this, I'd like to offer my sincere apologies. I will be sharing this review with both my Executive Housekeeper as well as my Chief Engineer so that the issues you encountered can be rectified for our future guests. In regards to our computer modem being stolen, I'm not certain who told you that because it simply isn't true. Yes, there were a couple of hours that we were without the internet, but not because our modem was "stolen." We take great pride in offering our guests a safe and secure property. Which is why we have security that patrols the ground overnight to ensure the safety of our guests as well as their belongings.

Again, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We hope that the next time your travels bring you to our area you will give us another chance.
