My son and I stayed here after Christmas. Everything was great. The hotel was laying tile in the front lobby upon arrival. It was finished the next day. The room was supposed to get ESPN but it did not. The front desk clerk was not able to assist. Other than that, there are great views and great service at this... More

Dear Robert P, Thank you for your comments. They are helpful. Believe me, I am sorry about the situation with ESPN. The problem lies with the provider, so there was nothing the front desk could do. As a result, we are in the process of changing providers, so the next time you come, the situation should be remedied. I do... More

Dear Keeb75, I enjoyed reading your review and I'm sure others will too. There are just a couple of things I'd like to clarify. I see that you have never experienced the smell of turning on electric heat for the first time of the season in Florida. You could have used it again. It only smells that way the first... More

I booked this one night stay on Hotel's.com. A great rate, but very found very quickly sold out due to a college bowl game taking place.

The hotel was ok for one night after arrival in Florida! The hotel is close to the airport! But the room was very old, it needs a renovation. Because of that it looked not very clean. Close to the hotel is a hulk hogan bar, thats great! But the bar is loud...

Very good to excellent experience. Bay front location, with both beach and pool facing west. Ability to dine outdoors. Good nighttime spot adjacent. Balcony on the spacious room. Excellent restaurant breakfast. On Tampa/Clearwater causeway giving it a "resort feel." Reasonable price. This would be our first choice of a return to Tampa

Good location on the water next to Hulk Hogans bar restaurant. Bring everything, no convenience stores or drug stores nearby. Our room leaked constantly and the AC didn't work. Other than that you can't beat the location for the price.
