The view from our room was breath-taking. We sat for hours watching the pelicans diving for fish and seeing the sun set from our balcony. The beds were very small, not used to a double. TV was great, loads of channels to choose from. Bathroom and room were spotless. Hogan's Bar was convenient for dining in and it was great... More

Overall not a bad property...very good location, nice pool & view of Tampa Bay. Close to eating places& airport. Downside is the poor maintenance & up-keep and slow or no response to reported problems.

The first night we stayed we was given a room on the first floor, which had not been remodeled, the carpet was coming apart in the walk way. The 2nd day he went to the desk and talked to Leah who moved us to... More

We were pleased with our stay. The room was clean and the hotel was in good condition. We got exactly what we were expecting for the money we paid. The Hogan's Restaurant attached was kinda need neat with Hulk Hogan wrestling theme. I'd stay again.

We checked in on a Sunday and that afternoon and evening the pool and grounds were very noisy because of large crowds and bands. We expected the noise as we were warned but we could not even get into the bar to get a drink without paying a cover charge. There should have been a different arrangement if you were... More

I have stayed only at BW hotels the past 2 years. This hotel has a beautiful view, and a great central location for many attractions but needs a lot of work on the continuity of staff and service. Rooms are old and need sound proofing, and Hogan's staff need training in customer service. We were expected to pay premium prices... More

My sister and I on a vacation to Florida recently stayed at the Best Western Bay Harbor Hotel on 2 occasions. The rooms are very spacious and with the bay view most pleasing. The restaurant Hogan's was so convenient, and the food excellent and well prepared, but the bar area does get rather noisy in the evenings and on weekends,... More

I booked here because of being on the water and close to Clearwater and Tampa airport. I was not displeased with that. The causeway is attractive location except in rush hour. Parking was fine and it was nice there was an attendant to make sure only hotel guests used the lot. The hotel was old and my room (city view)... More

BAYHARBOR, Guest Relations Manager at BEST WESTERN Bay Harbor Hotel, responded to this review

Dear SnappyBrit, Thank you for taking your time to write a review of our hotel. It seems that overall you were pleased, there were just a few rough edges. If you were in a room that needed a facelift, I can tell you that one is one the way. We were forced to suspend renovations because we had so many... More
