We have stayed at this property several times when travelling out of Tampa Airport and also just for leisure. We enjoy the ocean view rooms, but will opt for city view when we really need the quiet. The beds are comfortable, the staff is friendly & the onsite restaurant/bar is very nice. Airport shuttle is convenient and reliable. Overall one... More

Wow, this hotel was so much more than we thought it would be. If you love direct water view, water full of life, sunsets that are breathtaking, a nice patio then this is the place for you!! We loved every minute of it.

Great Place to stay, The view are incredible and the staff is always ready to assist you. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was clean. Can't ask for mare that that in my opinion. Wherever I went on the property there was hotel staff visible which provided a sense of security. There are many fun things to do... More

The hotel is everything you need in one spot if desiring to stay near the Tampa airport. There is a full service bar and restaurant, Hogan's Beach, within walking distance, overlooking the bay. There is another restaurant and bar right across the Causeway. The pool on site is clean with plenty of chairs. The parking is free and the room... More

Dear dore_teichman, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Just a quick note. Since we don't accept cash for rooms upon check in, the front desk at night keeps only a small amount of cash on hand to make change for the laundry and the vending machines. When you came down, they were out of dollar bills. The shuttle... More

We had an early morning flight out of the Tampa Airport and this hotel was easy to get to, on the water, and easy to get to the airport. It had a lovely restaurant that was casual but with an interesting menu. Service at the hotel and restaurant was great.

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel while doing some business in St Pete and showing properties. The hotel itself is really nice and has a GREAT view of the water. I didn't get to see quite so much because it rained for a portion of my stay, but the sunset that came out after was beautiful. The... More

Dear Edward F, Thank you for all your comments. They will be helpful to prospective guests. I would like to add one thing. I think the easiest way to get here is to throw the GPS into the Bay. They really confuse people. If you're coming from the north, south or east, follow the signs for Clearwater. If you're coming... More

Very affordable with a great romantic view. The hotel isn't super new but clean. We had a room with an oceanside view so my wife loved it and in the morning even saw a dolphin swimming in the cove. Definitely would stay there again.

The hotel clean, tidy and the staff were friendly. We stayed here at the start of our tour around Florida. If only all the hotels we stayed in could have been like this.
