Stayed at the Bay Harbor Hotel for a few week nights on a business trip in July. The location is very convenient from Tampa airport, and is close to a few beaches on the Bay and right on the causeway to Clearwater. Downtown Tampa is easy to access as well. The lobby and many of the common areas are in... More

we stayed at this hotel to attend a music festival on a nearby beach - the view from our room was just gorgeous. the staff was very nice and very helpful. shuttles run to the airport and to restaurants - for out of town guests, this is a great place to stay for the money.

We spent two nights at the Best Western Bay Harbor Hotel. The room was ok for what we needed. We chose this hotel because we got a good rate and because they have a free airport shuttle. We were glad there was an on site restaurant since we didn't have a vehicle. The view of the beach from the restaurant,... More

This hotel stay was wonderful. Used my BWR points for a two night stay on the weekend and was extremely impressed. Couldn't believe the low point requirements for this hotel especially considering the location. Located right on the bay and 20 minutes away from Busch Gardens, 30 minutes from MOSI, and NUMEROUS restaurants within 5-10 minutes. First, I have to... More

Stayed here after flying in to Tampa airport before driving south. Hotel is in a great location, close to Tampa airport and in a great setting right on the bayfront. Rooms were spacious enough and clean. Hotel has a great bar restaurant overlooking the bay. One downside would be it was very noisy even beyond midnight!

Stayed here the night before our flight home. Shower head was good (very adjustable and good water pressure), room was clean, bed was comfortable. Had breakfast in hotel restaurant. It was pretty good and didn't charge usurious prices. Stay here for TPA, it's 3 miles from the airport.

This Best Western is really close to "resort" quality. It is right on the bay, close to restaurants (although skip the Hulk Hogan's Beach attached), has a nice pool, pretty nice staff and clean rooms. There were a couple of unpleasant surprises, such as being asked to stick a flyer in my rental car window so it wouldn't get towed.... More

Dear Glenda R, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us and would like to come back. I'd like to clarify a couple of points that may make your next stay even better. The front desk staff did not mean for you to put the parking pass on your dashboard until it stopped raining. A few years ago, the Florida... More

The hotel itself is clean and looks updated. Room was quite large and comfortable. Stayed on July 5th and the hotel was a nightmare. The hallways had trash sitting when we arrived and it was still there the next morning when we left. Fireworks were set off in the parking lot while we were trying to sleep. It was a... More

Dear William K, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay at our hotel. Admittedly, the fourth of July week end stretches our personnel to the max.
