Bay View rooms are spectacular! Only issue is the music from the beach area next to the motel gets very loud. But it is livable. The staff is FANTASTIC! The area is BEAUTIFUL. The views of the Bay can not be beat!

Like the title says, I chose this hotel for its proximity to Tampa International Airport. They have a free shuttle service and it's only minutes away. The building seems kind of old, but the staff is good and the rooms are clean. The weather is bad, so we could not enjoy the bay view very much, but a pool and... More

Average hotel with good access to the airport. Room spacious and clean although you can hear the neighbours at times. Balcony pleasant although it was raining so we sadly had limited use of it. No breakfast included although you can buy this in the hotel restaurant. Coffee in reception in the morning was nice. Hotel restaurant was noisy at mealtimes.... More

the location itself was excellent. great view, great location.The restaurant leaves something to be desired. The only improvement They could make to the rooms would be the bed. They only have fulls or kings, no queen size.

Dear Craig B, Thank you for the feedback. I'm not sure what you had in mind about the restaurant, but we're always open for suggestions. We have changed the bar menu recently for late night food. I'm with you on the bed situation, but I'm sure you are aware that this is an older building. The current fire code will... More

One side is the Bay the other is the City. Both are sweet! Nice atmosphere for me but don't know about families. Jet ski rental is right on site. Very much a Florida hotel with some gorgeous palm trees.

This hotel was close to the Tampa Airport, about 10 minutes away. I was easily able to return a rental car the evening before and return via shuttle to the hotel. Our room was comfortable, clean with a balcony for sitting out in good weather. It's also a place where other adjoining room occupants can gather and depending on time... More

This was one of the nicest Best Western's I have ever stayed at. I loved the king bedroom with a balcony view of the Gulf. Absolutely beautiful! The only thing I was surprised about was the lack of a microwave in the room. If you don't need a microwave then you shouldn't miss out on much! The hotel is also... More

This is an older property that overall is well maintained but is showing its age and wear--some stains on the carpets, wallpaper patched with mismatching paper, etc. The room was large with a comfortable bed and was very clean. Furniture is dated. No lamp on desk table, which was much too high to comfortably put a laptop on and do... More
