This is my second time staying at Dolphin Beach Resort. Good value in an excellent location right on the beach. Nice rooms. Ken at the bar is extremely nice and helpful. Would stay here again. Definitely recommend it.

We reserved a one night stay. 5 days prior to our visit the money was deducted from our bank account. Upon check-in (Saturday afternoon) the staff tried to charge us again. We showed proof via mobile device, that the money was deducted form our account. Monday morning we were notified that the room charge was AGAIN deducted from our bank...

-checked in with my family for a mini vaca/escape from the Northeast. We were pleasantly surprised by the room and grounds. The location is fantastic, located right in the middle of St Pete Beach. There are restaurants, shops & a grocery store all within walking distance. The room was very clean & large, with 2 double beds, large bathroom, abslvony...

This hotel is great for the location and how the quaint pool area is just steps from the beach. The rooms are outdated but clean. There is a fun tiki bar right on site with Live music on weekends. No outdoor bathrooms though so try to get a room close to the bar/ pool area. The lobby bathrooms were kept...

I feel enthusiasm is contagious. I always arrive to a hotel excited, positive and friendly. I find it sets the tone for the rest of my stay. Check in staff was pleasant and welcoming. The hotel was dated but in the midst of updating so i'm sure it will be lovely upon completion. Our room had not been upgraded but...

I've now waited 20 mins for a server to acknowledge me for breakfast. She's waited on others but ignored me. That's the half of it. The front desk folks don't smile or are pleasant at all. The inside dining room is very dated and the service is questionable there too . The room has an outdated bath area, very nice....

First, I would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property, even though your experience was less than positive. You absolutely should not have had to wait anywhere near 20 minutes to be waited on for breakfast. If you remember any additional details about your server that will help us to address this...

Front desk staff was not very friendly at check in and other times when questions asked. Seems everyone working in Florida are from the north and don't have that southern charm we are used...

I stayed for four days at the Dolphin Beach Resort and was overwhelmed by the warmth of the staff. I was welcomed to my lovely room above the pool with a balcony.

The hotel itself, the pool, it's side bar and the beach were incredible. Not pleased with the hotel rooms - hallway leading to rooms, but we spent most of the time OUTSIDE. Great location - right on the strip - price was reasonable. We went the coldest day of our vacation (66 degrees) and I had the beach to my...

Although my room had been renovated the drapes did not work. Could see the bathtub/shower fixture and flush handle for toilet had not been replaced. Had trouble with the shower turn on the first day. Maintenance came up and said have to wait about 10 seconds for the water to go up to the shower head. Called housekeeping to ask...

I am sorry to read that your annual trip did not live up to your expectations/past experiences. It is rare that so many things go wrong at one time, but in your case, it appears that there was a perfect storm. We are undergoing renovations on one side of our property and did our best to place most everyone on...
