      Historical Traveler Reviews Howard Johnson Resort Hotel - St. Pete Beach Saint Pete Beach

      Really nice!!!

      from

      I stayed at this hotel in May of 2004 for 3 nights. It was very clean, great location on the beach, and also cheap. I have stayed in this area in the past and all around this has been the best hotel. The staff was also very friendly.

      Very Relaxing and Enjoyable

      from

      Stayed there last June (2003) and loved it. Very short walk to the gulf; watched the sunset from a little beach bar next to the swimming pool, with inexpensive food and drink, good entertainment, and a friendly staff. Would definitely stay there again. regular sized room, clean enough, usual ammenities

      Spring break 2004

      from

      We stayed at the Howard Johnson's Resort Hotel during spring break, March 20-27, 2004. The pool area was the nicest pool on the beach! The beach was wonderful too. The pool/beach bar was very convenient. Our room was average, but noisy. Unfortunately, the hotel had many families with young boys that liked to make a lot of noise. They played outside in the back parking lot after dark, and disturbed many guests. That is probably the one thing that might keep us from staying here again...the noisy guests! Otherwise, we enjoyed the amenities of our room, and it was kept fairly clean. We did have a patio door that needed repair, and the staff fixed it immediately. The hotel is in an excellent location.

      Alley view instead of ocean view that was requested

      from

      Stayed at Howard Johnson's on St. Pete Beach 3/18-3/28/03.. The staff was extremely friendly, however the rooms could have been a little cleaner. We arrived before check-in time, however they let us put our luggage in their office until it was ready so that we could go enjoy the beach. We flew and didn't rent a car. Check-in time is 3:00 ours was ready at 4:00. Our room was supposed to have been an ocean view and it was of an alley for the garbage trucks not of the ocean list we requested. We ask to switch rooms and were told that all rooms were booked that no one is guaranteed a choice of rooms. Not very happy! So before you stay make sure that you know what your view is going to be of! My family might stay again if we were guaranteed not to have the view of the alley as we called it.

      Smokers hotel

      from

      I specified a non-smoking room when booking through Expedia. When we turned up the hotel insisted we take a stinking smokers room. Despite a sign saying "non-smoking rooms", the front desk said that they had very few non-smoking rooms and there was very little chance of a move to one later. We spent a lot of time looking for an alternative and then buying cleaning and de-odourising products. Smokers bed-linen in particular is difficult to de-odourise.

      It is clear that Expedia and the hotel think they are acting reasonably by forwarding and refusing "Non-smoking" as an optional request. I see it as a matter of contract and will not deal with either of them again.

      It was a shame because the hotel was nicely positioned on the beach and the room was a reasonable size.

      SUPER HOTEL!!! 4 stars....10 if it was applicable :)

      from

      I went to St. Pete Beach, FL for my spring break with my three friends.

      It was very clean and affordable!!! We loved every minute of this trip, though the weather in the beginning was rainy. The only problem I had was with the house keeping. They were always rude to us, maybe because we were college students. But other than that the pool was very clean and refreshing, Barnicle Bills was great (best pina colada's i've EVER had!), and the beach was spectacular! I would recommend this hotel to everyone!

      Started going there in 1977

      from

      Started going there in 1977 and not interested in going anywhere else.

      Then the whole hotel was the Howard Johnson orange. Never one complaint in all that time. Lobby staff anxious to please. Housekeeping agreeable to any requests. Very clean and pleasant. Right on the beach which is clean and litter free. Attached restaurant serving great meals. Buffet at breakfast or choose from menu. Rooms spacious and smart. I highly recommend this hotel. We vacation on the package deal of flight, car and hotel. We are never disappointed!

      Hospitality at its best

      from

      What a wonderful place - we have returned here for over 15 years and enjoy the place just as much each year. The staff are so friendly and helpful - even giving us coupons for wonderful nearby restaurants like Leverocks! Our granddaughter needs a bottle warming for the milk and they said to use their own kitchen facilities. We love it and hope they always be there for us. each year. The rooms are pretty basic but have everything and I love the way you can just walk onto the beach from it. What a wondeful hotel.

      Enjoyed Our Stay

      from

      We stayed at the Howard Johnson St Petersurg Beach resort last October and both enjoyed our stay. The beach was clean, the pool was well maintained and the rooms were very clean. We are returning to HJ in July for a week. I guess that says it all.

      Nice place

      from

      My family and I stayed at the St. Pete Beach HoJo in the summer of 2001. We found it to be clean and an overall nice place. The drawbacks -- we wanted a room with a private balcony looking out towards the Gulf. When we made our reservations, I requested an upper-level room, so we could see better -- they would not do that. If was first come, first serve, but when we checked in, we got stuck on the bottom floor and could not even hardly see the Gulf. The pool was nice and there's a neat little bar right behind the pool. There's a berm (not sure of the spelling) that runs behind the hotel, so you have to walk a little ways to the beach. It's not bad, but I prefer being right on the beach and stepping out of my room onto the beach. Just my preference. Parking was great! Your room key also opens the gate to the parking lot, so you're always guaranteed a spot. We were always able to park right outside our room.

      ... 60s...a really cool space, a great vibe. And I had banana cream pie in an old time diner. That was a big tick for my little list of things I have to do here. This morning, bloody early mind you, my friend's band were on the local country station in St Petes...I say local...it goes out to 5million people. They made me use my English accent to announce the band...they seem to like this accent of mine... Tampa Bay? It actually does rock...in a country, bluegrass kinda ...
