"Great location; short walk to the waterfront, new St. Pete Pier, and tons of restaurants, bars, and shops. The hotel was new and clean. The lobby was spacious, and the room was large, clean, and comfortable. Good Covid precautions, including at breakfast. Small but nice pool deck.2020-12-02"
"Great location for downtown and pier touring. This is a beautiful, vintage hotel. The room was clean, though the furniture was showing some wear. The staff was accommodating. Expensive, but worth it for the location and ambiance. If you book the package with breakfast included, the amount allotted won't cover breakfast at Marchand's. Also, if you request an ocean view, ask for a room on the 6th or 7th floor so your view isn't blocked by trees on the hotel grounds.2021-03-01"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
