but if you're looking for a family friendly affordable place on the beach in Treasure Island then this is as good as any. Just be sure to ask for a room that's not directly over Sloppy Joes restaurant. We had an efficiency room with microwave/stove and fridge, plenty of dishes and cooking utensils provided. The room was nice and clean, not huge but adequate. There's a Wal-greens across the street that has a small food market and a liquor store (big PLUS!) The beds were a bit firm for my taste but to each his own. The staff was nice and handled our requests for extra towels, pillows etc with no problems. Parking on the other hand sucks, there is extended parking across the street but parking at the hotel is virtually non-existent, especially for the Friday/Saturday night dinner crowds. The walls are thin, you can hear everything going on in every room around you, of course that means they can hear you too.. ;-) There are two pools but you had best stake out a chair early, there aren't many and they go fast, especially in the morning, the sun doesn't reach the entire pool area until well into the afternoon. It's a walk down to the gulf and was a bit disappointed to find out you have to rent the lounge chairs ($8 per day) the hotel does not provide any. Beach view room is a must, the sunsets are amazing! All in all it was a pleasant but average hotel.
