I was a little weary booking this hotel, as we are more Hilton, Sheraton chain type people. That sounds obnoxious probably, but it is true. We stayed in the main "Tower" Room 304 and 305 and the rooms were great. This place has a really cool old school Florida feel to it. We got in late Friday night 11pm ish... More

Spent 2 days here for a wedding. The place was suggested by the brides family. The place looks nothing like those pics you see on the web. They must have been photo-shopped or something. Our room had terrible lighting, a musty smell, a door key which wouldn't work, and an extremely loud a/c wall unit, Maid service was sketchy -... More

Pool was great. Room was clean. Staff very nice. However in my sister's room the shower did not work. Lucky for her we were down the hall so she could shower. I would still go there again. Entertainment was great.

Stayed here pre-cruise since offered airport and port shuttle. The pool area was great... Tropical feel and the food was good. The rooms were dark \ poorly lit and smelled a little musty, though. On the fence on whether I will return. It is a serviceable option, but has much more potential if the rooms were given a little TLC.

This establishment could not be more opposite of the website and photographs. Im horribly disappointed. Smelly. Cheap. I cant imagine what hotel these other reviewers are talking about. Cracks in the walls. Very loud. You can hear everything st poolside. Hallways, etc.

We stayed here the night before a cruise. It was spacious and clean. Lovely decor in our room. Our daughters enjoyed the pool, we enjoyed a cabana while they swam. We stayed in the main hotel, so the loud bar music that others mentioned was not an issue for us. However, our room window was situated right beside the disgusting... More

I chose the hotel because they shuttle you from the airport.. and to the Cruise terminal for free. We got there early and they let us hang out till our rooms were ready. the staff was very accommodating and let us store all our luggage in a secure area. The pool bar was great and the room was very clean..... More

This hotel run a free shuttle from Tampa International airport and to the cruise port. We had three rooms, they were all different. Ours was the most up to date with a king and the other two rooms were double queens. The room with connecting doors were noisy since the sounds came under the door as the floors are tile.They...

Categorically the worst place I've ever stayed, Indifferent surly staff, the room smells dank and nasty, nonstop noise, TV doesn't work well, noisy air conditioner, undersized pillows, dark and depressing. What kind of "Spa" offers such terrible treatment to guests? Their restaurant is only open for "dinner" Wednesday to Saturday. Their airport shuttle doesn't operate before 9 AM or after... More

Absolute nightmare. Attempted to cancel my reservation with "Ty" only to be told they can't even find it. Yet my account was charged. They checked under my name and reservation number. "Ty" seemed less than interested. I asked if I could email them to reservation confirmation and was told "Oh our email's been down for two months. We won't be... More
