The owners should be ashamed they call it resort & spa. It is neither & miss represented. You enter from a dingy back Alley. The entrance is a filthy hallway & you feel like entering a filthy establishment. You register at the sex shop to check in after a long wait then u go through another dingy hallway to go... More

YRS is a great place to stay if you want to have fun in the heart of Ybor. Or just want a casual spot to chill with other like minded people. By far the best of the three options Tampa in the same catagory.

Although checking in took a little longer than i would like, this place is nice so much fun. My partner and I stayed for a weekend recently. We simply loved the place. The staff was great and the place was clean. I recommend this place to everyone.

We immediately packed up and told the guy at the front desk the issue and that we were going to leave. He promised me a FULL refund INCLUDING the... More

Normally I would not write a review on a property that I have not visited, but the ordeal that my partner and I experienced regarding YRAS needs to be shared. My partner reserved us a room as a birthday present to me. He paid the deposit using his card. Within a couple of days, he paid the balance so that... More

I booked a reservation in April for a June visit. At the time of my booking, they took a 50% room deposit. Their cancellation policy states, "All reservations cancelled within the allotted time period will be refunded their deposit. Cancellation must be made 7 days prior to your confirmed arrival date." I called to cancel my reservation THREE WEEKS before... More

Overall it was a good place to stay. Room was neat and clean and I had no problem with the shared shower room. There were two small but clean toilets in the hall which you could lock from the inside. The pool area was very enjoyable with jacuzzi jets along with the steam room which was good and hot. This... More

There are some substantial "sanitation issues". Despite the grand name, this is NOT a "Resort". This is NOT a "Spa". There are NO spa services. There wasn't even toilet paper in the shared bathroom. There are NO resort features - aside from a hot tub which has not been cleaned properly since Clin ton was in office. This is a... More

For a bath house, this place was actually had nice guest rooms to rent, all being renovated and all very clean. I was a little afraid of having to use the shared bathroom facility like a hostel, being a very private person, but the toilets are private and separate from the showers and sinks with locks on the doors.
