Got a great $89 rate to stay here on a Sunday night... The problems started with a huge party/concert taking place right next door at Hulk Hogan's restaurant/bar. Lots of drunk people all around, police cars parked all around. Noise continued in the hotel, with waiting room set up in hallway right outside of our room. Some remodeling/upgrades have taken...

Dear Rick L, I'm sorry that your stay was not as nice as you had expected. Unless we were totally sold out, which does happen frequently, the front desk staff could have changed your room, if you wanted. We don't expect you to sleep on a bad mattress. I really do appreciate your comments. I'll pass them on to the... More

Get a water front room. Great View!. Hogan's restaurant attached is great!. ( Yes that's the Hulk's place). Food was excellent for the price. The displays of his "belts" were outstanding. Only issue is that the hotel needs a separate staff elevator. Housekeeping, room service, etc uses the same 2 elevators for a 6 floor hotel. Would definitely go back.

My daughter was in Tampa on business, and we spent 2 nights at the hotel. We had a room with a Bay view and balcony and the view was spectacular at any time of day. The pool is heated and lovely. The Hulk Hogan restaurant is not only like a little museum, but the food is excellent. I liked the... More

My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon last year in the Summer of 2013. We were very excited about the trip all the way up to the point when we got there. Don't get me wrong, it was a great hotel, and we had a very nice room. However, if you are looking for something beach front like... More

Dear Mark S, Thank you for letting us and others know about our hotel. I'm glad you liked the facility, just not the beach. Before you say you won't come back, remember, for a waterfront, full service, centrally located hotel, we are one of the most economically priced. Next winter, when you look out the window and see snow, our... More

Left with no towels and we requested them twice but never got them. Very little service provided. Prolems with parking. We had dinner at Hogans and the food and service were excellent. So you would be better off staying at one of the other nearby hotels and just visiting Hogan's

Dear Lori S, I'm sorry you were not pleased with your stay at our hotel. I'll show your comments to the Housekeeping Supervisor. You really should have had the towels. Every hotel room includes one free parking pass. Again, you should have had a parking space. I would not advise other guests to take your advice about the parking because... More

Loved this place. The pool was nice, however a lot of bugs floating around. Restaurant/Bar area was pretty neat and it was great to sit on the water and have a couple drinks and dinner. The room was excellent and the balcony right on the bay was beautiful. Will return to this facility if ever back in the Tampa Bay... More

I stayed April 5, 2014 in a bayside room on the 6th floor. The room was clean & a nice bathroom. The staff was very helpful & stored our luggage for us.

I spent four days at the hotel and throughly enjoyed it. A room with a bayside view is a must. The sunset over the bay will melt away your worries. The staff is very professional and the rooms have all the amenities you'd expect. The bathrooms are roomy and very clean (I always judge first by the condition of the... More

Overall this is a okay hotel. If I was into partying and drinking hotel is a great place. Good location easy to get to the airport and other areas of Tampa. Cops arrived on Sunday nite and cops there on Monday night. Staff at front desk very nice; not always knowledeable about highways or streets in area.

Dear 180katherinea, Thank you for your review. You are correct about our location. It's hard to beat. I appreciate your letting me know about the front desk. You can't teach people to be nice, but we can teach them where things are. The bar can sometimes get a little rowdy on week ends and holidays, but the revelry usually doesn't... More

5 minutes to the airport, the waterfront hotel is a great place to get work done and still finish the day in true vacation mode. Hogans Beach Bar with its multiple outdoor bars , terraces and 2 beach volley ball courts is hopping and definitely entertaining. On a Tuesday night, the place was busy and diverse.
