Nine days to remember

I would suggest that check in should be done earlier than 300 p.m. as long as there are available clean vacant rooms and also check out not later than 1200 so that next customers have rooms cleaned and ready for occupancy. As compared with other hotels, there are agents or reps offering group or special trips with corresponding value/fares if you sign up for a certain special trip. On the hotel information on the room's drawer, none referring to nearest hospitals and their locations. Room cleaners were great.

Bucket list

I loved that the hotel was next door to Hogans beach. It was sooooooo cool seeing all the Hulk hogan memorabilia. The restaurant also had real good food. Room service was quick and the staff was amazing.

The Start of a Fabulous Florida Vacation!

We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay here. We were in town for just a few nights to see a baseball game and found the room to be very comfortable. The view from the balcony was beautiful, the location was so nice. Close to St. Petersburg. Hogan's Beach was a fun and tasty restaurant. We would definitely stay here again.
