Unfortunately, there are a few cons: It is very small, so I would definitely not recommend it to families (it does have a fold-out couch, though). The furniture isn't very comfortable. There is absolutely no maid service (except for a towel exchange on Tuesday), and I don't think they ever mopped the floors (it felt very gritty, and the soles of my feet got black from walking on it!). Also, in order to get to your room, there is a zig-zag "balcony" with just a railing between you and a 60-foot drop. If you are at all afraid of heights, this is NOT the place for you. Also, if you want to relax on the beach, expect to drag a lounge chair all the way from the hotel to the beach and then back again when you're done.
This would be a good spot for budget travelers or perhaps a couple who likes a lot of privacy (since no one will be coming into your room to clean it!). The location is excellent, but because of all the previously mentioned cons, I just can't recommend it.

The check-in is in a small office on the ground floor in the building. You can smell it steps away, because it smells extremely of cigarette smoke.
The unit was on the second floor, the first in front of the elevator and by the washing and drying area.
Upon entering the unit, we could not believe how old everything was. In the unit, we could hear the elevator and the busy street. So you can't sleep very well. The air conditioning was a stand-alone box (perhaps installed years later than the building was built). So it wasn't a good vacation time.

The units are quite small but have everything you need for an enjoyable stay. They are good for a couple or for two couples, if you know them REALLY well. I am not sure you would enjoy staying here with children. There is a small pool. Laundry facilities are on certain floors. On the top is a penthouse with a panoramic view of the entire area.

The beach location is great -- you can walk down the beach all the way to the bridge that crosses over John's Pass to the Madeira Beach boardwalk where all the action is. Dolphins swim by the boardwalk at Johns Pass by the schools.Resort Experience:We were in a studio unit on the third floor. Upon entering the unit, we could not believe how old everything was -- everything from the 1970s and outdated. The unit has a balcony that is on the wrong side of the building because it never gets the sun. Coin-operated washer and dryer are located in the elevator vestibule on each floor. A 19" TV, full-size fridge, stove range, and VCR are in each unit. There’s an open-type divider that used to slide at one time is between the bedroom area and the kitchen. The resort does replenish supplies. One parking space per unit -- some are covered. The resort is on a busy road, so be careful when crossing the street. The resort does not have any organized activities.
