I've had family in Ruskin and have been visiting the area from Michigan since I was born, so when my mom and I stayed at the resort for the first time, we were beyond excited! It exceeded our expectations. The front desk staff accommodated us very well. The grounds are so well kept, and the access to the pool and... More

After reading the mixed reviews for the "hotel rooms" (not suites) at Little Harbor, I decided to go and take a look before recommending these accommodations to a family member who will be visiting later this year. Karissa and Justin greeted me at check-in and they were "over the top" with hospitality and a gracious welcome. When I explained my... More

The hotel, first off, was very clean. Neat hallways too. The photos features are of suites and the marina. The Inn is actually the hotel where you stay. We were in the second floor (only two levels) and we had a balcony view of Tampa Bay with the parking lot below. It was alright. The other side of us had... More

We were there for only one night but I could see how the property could be a favorite for some. While some of the facilities were a little dated there is a lot to do and the food prices are extremely reasonable. We had brunch on Sunday, it included 2 glasses of mimosa and was only $17. Lots of good... More

Rooms and hallways really outdated! Air conditioner old and tired--couldn't get room cooler than 78 degrees. Very old (20 year old) TV that didn't work properly, closet door came off its track, mounds of dust behind the lattice headboard.
