Upon arrival, Vicky Chaleff made me feel that I was a family member. Room clean, comfortable, and "tons" of pillows. Room 316 on front of building. No road noise audible. Hotel undergoing renovation and painting. This did not affect our stay. Contractor had equipment located in parking lot, which was no big deal for us. Purpose of our visit was to attend family wedding in downtown St Petersburg. This property had easy access to I295, which made trip downtown quick and easy. There were fast food outlets really close within walking distance. Other restaurants were not far. Can't speak about public transport because I had not done any research on subject. Room had free wifi that was pretty fast.

Hi Edward -

Thank you for being our guest and for going out of your way to place this fantastic review! I am happy to hear Vicky and our staff made you feel like family (in a good way :) As you noticed we are almost finished revamping the exterior of our hotel and I'm glad it didn't affect your stay one bit. The finished product is really going to make us pop! You mentioned your room was clean, you had tons of pillows, it was quiet, convenient and you had great WIFI! Sounds like a great stay! On your next trip to Saint Petersburg the Family Reunion will be with us :)

I attended an event in the Dali Museum area waterfront and needed a room for one night; I did select this hotel based on the rate and the locality (about 10-15 min. from museum area). For a one night stay I found this hotel to be a "well maintained property, comfortable room". I was not extremely impressed, but satisfied with everything, it was a decent average rate (could always be less - smile) clean, friendly helpful staff, decent breakfast, did have good DIY waffle station also some hot food. Traveling alone, I felt safe coming & going to my car at night. Room was very typical, again, satisfied & clean. The Only Critique I would have about the room is the bathroom door & the bathroom fan - design puts that door in conflict with the toilet space; you have to stand back away from toilet to close door - don't know if all rooms like mine. Bathroom fan is connected to light & it is noisey; would have liked them separate. As for pool, I had my coffee in that area (nice, clean) and it is a "small (length), 5'deep pool - but I say "so what". Would return to this hotel

Thank you for choosing our hotel when your recent travels brought you to visit the #1 Ranked Thing to Do in our Town - The Dali Museum! I am happy to hear you enjoyed all facets of your stay with us here at Comfort Inn & Suites Northeast Gateway and that we were a well maintained property with a comfortable room and a nice DIY waffle station. I agree the design of the bathroom doors could have been better and I get mix reviews on the privacy fan but your feedback is much appreciated. I am glad to hear you would return to stay with us again! Thank you again for your patronage.

This hotel is 3 minutes from our home. We had major electrical work being done at the house that required the power to be off the entire day so we rented a room making sure one would be available for an 8am check-in. The front desk manager was very accommodating.

We had a suite with a sitting area since we were planning to hang out in the air conditioned room or by the pool until the electricians were done for the day.

The outside grounds, public interior areas, and our suite were extremely clean and well maintained. So was the pool area but at the same time it was somewhat disappointing.

The pool itself is of average size compared to ones found at other hotels however the deck area is almost non-existent and they only have room for two chaise lounges (one being broken) and several upright chairs. Also, it appears that they used to have a hot tub which was later turned into a planter.

I would recommend the hotel as it is centrally located to St. Pete, Tampa, and Clearwater. No restaurants in walking distance but plenty within a 3 - 5 minute drive. If you plan to use this hotel as your vacation spot and hang by the pool, you would do better staying at one of the hotels along Ulmerton Road which is only 5 minutes away. That area is actually in Clearwater city limits but functionally it like the outer limits of St. Pete. So search for hotels in Clearwater and look for ones with an Ulmerton Road address.

Hi William -

Thank you for your review. I am glad we were able to accommodate you while the electrical work at your house was being completed. As I am sure you found out when calling around check in time at all hotels is at 3PM but considering your circumstances and since we had the room available I am glad we were able to get you into a suite room early at no additional charge. In regards to the no hot tub/planter; No where do we advertise having a hot tub by our pool. However we do have 3 Jacuzzi suite rooms if that is something you are looking for. Also as seen in all of our pictures we have a beautiful Palm Tree Shaded Pool that our guests love to sit under and read the paper. Our hotel is quiet with only 53 rooms and we do mostly corporate business so most of the time when families travel and stay at our hotel it is as if they have their own private pool. Furthermore, our Award Winning Hotel is known for it's service (as you pointed out) and so that is of course something to take into consideration when choosing a hotel.

I took my family down to St. Petersburg to watch the Atlanta Braves take on the Tampa Rays. We chose this hotel because it was affordable and we didn't want to stay where most people were staying which was downtown St. Pete near the stadium. This hotel was not occupied with lots of tourist or loud baseball fans. The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and roomy. I was quite surprised how nice it really was. The full breakfast was ok; parking not a problem.
Getting to the game:
Do not take the I-275 to the stadium. You will never make it to the game(traffic). The hotel is only 12 mins away from ballpark. Martin Luther king Jr Blvd runs along the hotel. Take that south and it literally runs right into the stadium. There is plenty of parking. Lot 6 &7 are the closest (We used lot 7). Parking is free if your the first 100 cars in the lot with 4 or more in the car. Otherwise it's $15.
Overall our stay was satisfactory. We will be coming back very soon!
