“Excellent staff but not a great place to stay”
Reviewed 19 September 2013

Room was ok, neighborhood not so hot.Very convienent to the highway. Includes a decent breakfast . Wimpy shower water pressure. No fan in bathroom. Overall not memorable. Paid $135 for a one night stay off season which seemed high to me.

I recently stayed here with my 5year old son. The room was clean and nice, service was friendly and the free breakfast was appreciated! It was also easy to find, right off the highway. We didn't get in the pool but it looked clean and pleasant.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is nice and clean, although there was an odd musty smell in our room and in the hallway leading up to our room. We took the complimentary shuttle from the hotel to Tropicana Field. You have to sign up at the front desk when you check in. The shuttle was timely and the driver was friendly. The room itself was nice, the bed was a little hard but not terrible. The shower also had good water pressure. The complimentary breakfast had a lot of options...eggs, biscuits, sausage gravy, as well as fruits, yogurt and pastries. We would probably stay at another hotel next time if we aren't going to a Rays game simply for distance to the beach. But this is definitely a good hotel right off of the interstate!

Having stayed in wonderful Holiday Inn in Perry, Florida and good ones in Pensacola and Pt. Ritchey, this hotel had a wonderful Mr. Josh on duty but what a disaster with the rooms! The first room had a poor working TV and a cracked window which you have to report so you won't charged for damages later. Presumably hotel staff did not know about. The next room smelled of stale smoke and had an even bigger crack. Had to move out and stay in La Quinta in the city and was just fine.
And remember all of these hotels, mentioned here have a very so-so breakfast obivously driven by the lowest common denominator - automation and no fruit (Perry hotel dide not even have bananas.) None of them are made on premises made any longer so I'm surprised to read all these breakfast raves.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Holiday Inn and Suites in St. Petersburg, Florida this past 4th Of July holiday weekend.
The room was clean and neat and the complimentary breakfast the next morning was very satisfying.
We happened to be in town to watch the Tampa Bay Rays play the Chicago White Sox. The beauty of staying at the Holiday Inn is that they had a free shuttle to and from the game. Makes it convenient and safer if you want to have a beer or two while watching the game. It also saves you the cost and hassle of parking at the stadium.
The area around the hotel is very safe and if the complimentary breakfast is not to your liking there is a Cracker Barrell next door.
I would definitely stay here again if I was in the neighborhood again.

We stayed here June 29th for 1 night and found the hotel more than adequate, everyone was nice the room was clean, and the bed good. The room carpet was old, needs replacing but otherwise very nice. The breakfast offerings were also good.

We wre there to go to a Tampa Bay Rays game the hotel offers a shuttle to the game and back, but we did not use as we had alread purchsed parking at the stadium.

Only resturant close is Cracker Barrell but hotel gave us map to other restaurants, about 5-7 minutes away, included Outback, Chilis, many others to choose from.

I was passing through town for business and stayed one night at this hotel with the family. The service was excellent. The central location was convienent for the purpose of this particular stay. It is just a little far from the beach for my normal activities in St Pete, but I would highly recommend this property if you have business in the area.
