We had a nice stay during our long-weekend trip to Tampa. The water view was breath-taking and we enjoying sitting on the patio. Bed was very comfortable and the TV was high quality. Refrigerator in the room was also a bonus. The night-life at Hogan's Beach and Whiskey Joe's was loud at night, but no problems in the hotel from... More

We stayed here in July, Sat-Mon. There is no doubt that this is a weekend party hotel. The attached restaurant, Hogan's Beach offers good food, but contributes to the noise level and party atmosphere. Although the Bay view is beautiful, even more so at night, there is yet another bar that sits just across the bay that competes for the... More

Very nice location by the bay. Within minutes from the Tampa airport and Clearwater. Comfortable accommodations and friendly staff makes for a relaxing environment. The attached restaurants and bar is nice and the food is good. I would rate the overall experience was very good.

The Bayharbor Hotel often changed the hotel chains in the past years. It used to be a Radisson. It could use a little bit of renovation, but it is still a good place to stay for a few nights. The rooms are large and somehow clean. Take a room to the bay, it's worth it. Next door is Hoogans on... More

Here on a Family vacation the bay view is a very beautiful view day and night but other than that the hotel is just ok. Hogan's Beach is nice although price for jet ski rental is a bit ridiculous I think. $55 for 30 mins 95 for 1 hr. The hotel staff is not very friendly, u pretty much have... More

If you pay extra for the view, it was beautiful, although jet skys were very noisy. No breakfast included which was a disappointment since there was no where to eat except at Hogans Resturant, which by the way, food was great but flies were horrible and I'm talking about inside seating. No one was very friendly. Party nights were over... More

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

Dear Sonofragnar, Thank you for the feedback on our hotel. I fully agree with you about leaving on the lights in the bathrooms or anywhere else in unoccupied room. If we turn them all off, there is the danger that guests may trip over or bump into something in a dark room. I'm going to discuss this further with the... 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
