Sectional Tennis Weekend in ST Pete

Stayed at the Magnuson Marina Hotel, near perfect location to downtown St Pete activities. Ratings are such a challenge. Facility was nice and clean, the was 2 stories with tight circular stairway. That being said, if you choose to stay here make sure you have single floor room if you are challenged by very tight circular stairs. The room was clean, had microwave, 2 burner stove, & mini fridge. Shower was updated however toilet was not squarely seated. All towels, bed linens & pillows looked & smelled clean. While the facility does look somewhat dated, it appeared in good condition. The pool & hot tub were busy when I was in the area. I did pay less than several fellow tennis team members who spent more per night than I did for a 2 night weekend stay. Staff were all pleasant & cordial. TVs, internet & cable service were quite adequate and functioned to expectations.

  • Jan S : Florida

This hotel has only three things to offer: water location, pool and children's play area. Also permits dogs..good or bad, how you look at it. Rooms are REALLY outdated. Small, some musty and not pleased with house keeping. Many problems including, noisy air conditioning, no hot water, malfunctioning television remote, amenities in room sporadically provided (no heat proof coffee cups; only plastic). Many employees standing around doing nothing. Restaurant was a total joke.

One night stay for a wedding

My wife and I stayed here for a night while in town for a wedding. The hotel was very easy to get to from the highway and made for a great location to explore St. Pete. It was located right off the Sunshine Skyway bridge. Unfortunately that is where the good ends. The room was in need of new carpeting and a thorough cleaning evidenced by the very dank humid musk. The A/C remote worked.....sometimes. The room did come with a fridge and microwave as well as coffee maker, so not barren. Just an old room. I will say the location is on the water and the pool area is beautiful. Overall, I would not stay here again, but most likely at another hotel nearby with nicer or cleaner smelling rooms. Front desk service was fine.

Great location

Came in late last night and our reservations never went through Benjamin was very helpful in doing all he could to get us the price we booked but the trip advisor app was not working. We upgraded to a water front room for $178 a night . upon waking up we were very impressed by the view it was amazing. We will be bringing our boat back next time there is a marina a beach and jet ski rentals and a big tiki bar 2 pools jacuzzi and playground for kids Our bar tender was kaitlin and she was awesome we never had to wait for our drinks she was onpoint all night. We will definitely come back again the staff was great.(on a side note the rooms are very very dated but also very clean. There was a corded phone in the bathroom which my 26 year old girlfriend thought was hilarious because im pretty sure she had never seen that before)

Our favourite place

We have visited Marina Cove several times over 20 years and it remains our favourite getaway. We had a relaxing time and enjoyed sitting on our patio just feet away from the water watching the wildlife. We saw a pair of dolphins and a manatee mother and calf in the marina and watched the daily antics of an osprey who was using a yacht's mast as his perch. Our room was light and airy and clean. The towels and bedding were changed when we wanted. The restaurant overlooks the marina and the food was good. The bar in the hotel and the one in the Nepa Hut were very friendly. All the staff were wonderful - helpful, cheerful and couldn't do enough for us. Special mentions for Jenson, Janet and Lawrence. The pools were good and the beach is small and was in the process of being tidied up whilst we were there. The hotel is within easy reach of local amenities, beaches, shops etc. Whilst Marina Cove remains our favourite place we have noticed it is a little tired in places.
