The resort location is amazing with a private beach. First nigt we stayed in the junior suite (i think) in the old part of the resort, it was one room with a kitchnette. The unit had some sort of carpet cleaner smell, which was very strong. Inspite of some reviews saying that it had a smell, we decided to try... More

We have stayed here seven or eight times over the past three years, as we visit our son and family approximately three times a year (October through April - it's too hot the other months). We have tried a local B&B, a hotel or two in Tampa, and a couple in Brandon but this is by far the most convenient,... More

To get a break from the winter cold, and to play a few rounds of golf, we stayed at Little Harbor. We stayed in a 2 Bedroom condo that was spacious, clean, well equipped and had terrific views of the marina, Tampa Bay and the cities of St Petersburg and Tampa. The buffet breakfast was included in our stay. I... More

We stayed in a suite with full kitchen and living room, it was really nice and comfortable. The staff on the other hand was an interesting experience to say the least. At times my husband and I both wondered if we were in another country or possibly the Twilight Zone. I called the front desk twice to get information on... More

We recently booked a package through Orbitz and were assigned a room in the older section of this hotel group. On entering the hallway, the horrendous smell blew us away. The room was dark and smelly also. It wasn't a place where I would ask anyone to stay even for one night. We immediately complained and asked for an upgrade... More

I was a little nervous based on the reviews I read. However, I have travled to at least 15 resorts in what I call "warm blue places" so I have some to compare to. This was no Caribbean high end resort but it was with out question the PERFECT weekend get away. The price was fair, $78 a night on... More

The room was very nice. Received a military discount, resulting in thirty percent off the rack rate. The room, a one bedroom suite, was clean, well furnished, and modern. Parking was right in front of the unit, but that is not the case for all units. Neither of the two hot tubs were working during our stay. The fact that... More

Thank you for your review. We do apologize that neither of the Hot Tubs were working during your stay. At the time, there was a leak that was being repaired in the line of the Inn Hot Tub.,This has been repaired, and the Harborside Hot Tub unfortunately was out of order for that weekend only. As for, the breakfast buffet... More
