We had a wedding in the area recently and I found this through Priceline. Not only was it reasonably priced, but such a nice set up. Nice view of water with boats, outside areas to sit under the trees or at the pool. It is near everything we needed. I would definitely come back if I need a room in... More

I stayed at the hotel for two weeks ending October 10th 2014 and found it enjoyable. I had a room off the highway on the 3rd floor. There was a continental breakfast included each a.m. and found surprise "towel art" (dogs, bears, swans) in my room on many days. The rooms included dresser, cable TV, Wireless Internet, a small refrigerator,... More

We live minutes from this hotel and pass it each day without realizing the oasis. It is located on a busy so unless you are looking. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The rooms were big, renovated and look clean. Beds are comfy. You can smell the years, but they tried to smell clean. Breakfast included. The surprise is... More

We were expecting a mid grade hotel for the price...but this is a slum... The rooms are outdated and need new everything the staff was rude. Appears that hotel has fallen on hard times and renting rooms by the month. We encountered unattended kids swimming in the pool who explained that they "lived" at the hotel...the breakfast was a joke...stay... More

Very pleasant stay! The lady that checked us in, Elizabeth, was quick, pleasant and helpful. Our room was very large, clean and had modern furniture. The maid service does an excellent job and even takes the time to make adorable dog, swan and shell towel arrangements. The room was equipped with a comfortable sitting chair, refrigerator, microwave, wireless internet, large... More

I have to completely agree with the previous reviewer; worth every penny and more. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the lovely view from the large balcony of the canal below, although we were disappointed to have missed the alligator. The room was extremely quiet, even though we were right next to the elevator. We extended... More

My wife and I just returned from a 5 day stay at Lake Tarpon Resort. After I read some of the early reviews I became worried.

My friend and I got a room for a weekend around Spring Break time. We were a bit apprehensive after reading the negative reviews online, but my stay proved them wrong.
