The rooms themselves are standard with fridges, microwaves and tiny coffee machines present, but the location and a certain feeling, of what I guess people call an old Florida is great. The hotel is clean and well kept with a beach bar, nice pool area, overlooking an ocean and good paid breakfast. It looks cozier then most of the towers...

After reading some of the negative or "ok" reviews, I was a little hesitant to book at this hotel at first, but for a quick weekend get-a-away, the price couldn't be beat. I'm glad I decided to look past some of the negative reviews. The hotel is a little dated, but overall we found everything to be neat and clean....

Had to pay 30 to park next door at the beach parking lot.. Found an article of clothing next to one of the beds..which makes...

The bathroom and tub very clean. The bedding and towels were clean and smelled fresh. The beds very comfortable. The microwave and refrigerator worked well. The...

Good location on the beach. Resort is nice, however there are areas that could be kept cleaner. The staff is friendly and helpful. We had rain everyday which didn't allow us to use the beach as much as we wanted. Overall our stay was relaxing and fun.

Overall the Dolphin Beach Resort is ok. Walking thru the halls reminded me of Old World Florida. It was very nostalgic. Then when we got in our room I realized that this hotel just hadn't been updated in a while! Unfortunately the weekend we spent there was VERY rainy. 9 inches of rain. Altogether our group had almost 10 rooms...

Let me preface my review by saying...as a native Floridian, I have never experienced such monsoon weather (the weekend of our stay), that wasn't categorized as either a tropical storm or hurricane. The rain came in blowing hard and the only shelter was in our rooms. That said: FRONT DESK: Never in my travels have I met two nicer young...

Matt at the front desk was awesome both on the phone and in person. Had the perfect ocean front room with balcony ready for me and I appreciate his efforts to accommodate me. I have already scheduled my husband and I for another upcoming visit and I hope it is just as fun as always, rain or shine, even if...

This is the only hotel we've ever stayed at in St. Pete Beach. For us, its convenient and 'fairly priced'. However, this time we were extremely disappointed with check-in/arrival. They are 'notorious' for rooms not being ready to the very late time of 4pm. .so we plan for that. however. .we got there at 4:15 and was told it could...

This hotel is in a fabulous location right on, in my view, the best part of St Pete's Beach. The beach is so clean and is covered with soft, pure white sand. The rooms are a little dated, but that doesn't matter to us as they are clean and tidy and the beds are so comfortable. We have an excellent...
