a new coat of paint doesnt hide the fact that it is an overpriced old property. the room reaked of mold/mildew, the wifi was iffy at best, house keeping didnot clean out the coffee pot, and lots of noise thru the walls. but a great pool & it is right on the beach

Located right on St Pete's beach. The hotel facilities and amenities are very good, pool side and beach bar. The rooms are clean and beds very comfortable. The hotel is in need of updating and decorating, it looks a bit tired. The supermarket - Publix, is just across the road and ample parking right outside of the hotel. A good...

I had the occasion to stay at the Dolphin Beach Resort on St. Pete Beach last week for four nights with a group of friends. The location on St. Pete Beach could not be better. The beach is just beautiful. We had an Ocean Front room on the ground floor and so we could actually walk out on to the...

Can't fault location right in the beach, easy parking or friendly staff. Room large but the hotel rooms are showing their age a bit. Clean and functional though with good showers and a great price. Beach is awesome, we saw Dolphins, loads of birds and an amazing sunset.

Great room - clean & best view of sunset. Staff are ready to serve with a smile. Best beach access. Great access to grocery, shopping & restaurants! We also enjoyed the pool & outdoor bar (good coconut shrimp & piña colada) We will return soon!

We've stayed at many hotels and this one has the worst customer service I've ever received. Rooms are average, pool is okay size. The view depending on your room it's great and the access to beach too. But the service it's awful, no pool towels available, no smiles, careless employees, you name it! If you're expecting service with a smile...

The front desk staff is lacking the professionalism that is desired even in a value property. There were a few people trying to check in say 3 pm and we were scolded that it was shift change so we'd have to wait... That was a turnoff but once we were in the room and using the pool area, life was...

We are currently staying at the Dolphin Beach Resort as our condo is being painted. Check in was handled by a very pleasant Rita , with a big smile. While we may be considered pariahs by some (we both smoke cigarettes) Rita had no issues with assigning us to a smoking designated room and made us feel very welcome. The...

We spent a weekend here in September 2015. The overall appearance of the so-called resort, is decent, but dated. Once inside, you see exactly how dated the rooms and common areas are, along with how poorly it is taken care of. In the evening, while sitting outside at our main floor poolside room, we saw several rodents.....since we are on...

We spent one night at the Dolphin Resort on our way south. The room was adequate (refrigerator, microwave, TV, etc), but well used. Parking lot view. Wifi was advertised but couldn't get connected until standing in front of check in desk on our way out. Restaurant is attached and buffet breakfast was $11+. Food was edible, but not a large...
