8/10 Very Good

great rooms but east side rooms - balcony blues
The weather was cold but we still had a good time. The only downfall was the room with the balcony was over the restaurant area where a fan was constantly blowing. If the weather would have been warner the balcony would have not been a great area to sit out on. I would defintely request a room in front or opposite side. Positive was room had two king beds!

Safe security.
The only thing I did not like about our Bellwether experience was that although there was a Safe in our room it was NOT secured to anything. Not bolted down Anyone could walk out of the room with it !! Why have a safe if it is not safely secured We did not feel comfortable using it . Otherwise We had a wonderful stay at Bellwether despite the cooler temps First visit to St Pete’s Beach area and loved it. Would stay at Bellwether again But hoping they fix the Safe issue
