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.

Excellent hotel for the price. Good value. The hotel restaurant was below expectations.The rooms are clean and neat. The bay view is beautiful. There were two computers for guest use in the lobby. xxttvvyyuunnmmjjkkoooiyyytttrrreewwqq

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. We plan for it, but we cannot anticipate everything. I will show your review to the restaurant manager. They are not supposed to be serving food and drinks in... More

Dear NYCFAN51, Thank you for the review of our hotel. I would like to point out to potential guests who have not stayed with us before that the Sunday afternoon beach parties are usually over between 10 and 11 P.M. and crowd disburses.

I don't even know where to begin. Well let's start with the fact that the security there is terrible. First, I was verbally and physically assaulted by one of their drunk guests aparently leaving the Hulk Hogan bar. This hotel is more concerned with making a buck from parking, rather than ensuring the safety and security of their guest. Throughout... More

Well, not so super, however nothing particularly negative. Restaurant is external (nice location, you can reach through a walking corridor, for fans of Huk Hogan the legend of wrestling). Boutique internal with correct prices.

I booked two nights through Priceline for a King, City View with balcony, etc., etc Upon check-in, I was immediately repulsed by the quality of the room. The carpet was stained, the curtains were frazzled. The mini fridge seemed like an after thought. I opened the door to the balcony (not really a balcony on the first floor) and realized... More
