Fair
Pros: Location

Very Good
Pros: The location, staff and beach are terrific. The rooms are on the old side, but very clean. In a few weeks they are opening up a rooftop lounge, which will make this even more popular than it is now - will definitely be back!
Cons: The only negative was the heating unit - it was an unusually cold week in St. Pete when we were there, and the in-wall hearing unit was unable to warm the room at all - not even close, although turned up to 90.
