Magnuson Hotel Marina Cove
Ranked #22 of 43 Hotels in St. Petersburg
Reviewed 3 February 2011

My wife and I stayed at the Magnuson Marina Cove in St. Petersburg for 3 days. It was formerly a Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort when we booked it. It had changed name only 2 weeks before our visit. The staff was very friendly and our room was ready to occupy upon our arrival. We had booked a bay view room right on the water with a view of the Sunshine Parkway Bridge. Our room was a corner unit with doorwalls on two sides. The grounds were very well kept with 2 pools and a kiddie play area. Also a Tiki bar on stilts overlooking the bay. It appeared the room had been repainted and spruced up since the name change. The general manager Steve was the same person from the Holiday Inn days. He was very approachable and helpful. We did not try the restaurant or lounge, but they looked nice. On one day we saw 3 dolphins swim past our room less than 20 feet away as they checked out the adjacent marina. All in all, we would recommend the Magnuson Marina Cove to others.

I am so glad you and your wife had a great stay here at our hotel. You sure had a great room with a nice view of Tampa Bay. Even though we have changed names, we still have the same great ownership and friendly staff. The dolphins that visit us in our marina are hard to beat. I have been here many years and it still amazes me everytime they come in for a visit. Come back and see us again soon.

I spent a nice weekend at your hotel in November. The weather was great. I stayed in a room with a view of bay. The staff was very nice and attentive to guest's needs. My stay was very relaxing, and I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the St. Petersburg Area.

November sure is the perfect time of year to visit St. Petersburg. Nice sunny days with cool evenings. We are glad you enjoyed your room with a view of Tampa Bay. We hope you come back to visit and relax with us again soon. Our hotel has so much to offer, that I am sure your next trip will be just as great!
