We used this hotel for an overnight stay when we finished our cruise. Nick & Gail (front desk) went out of their way from assisting with our transportation from the Cruise Port to making us as comfortable as possible until a room was ready for us to check in to. A very good experience considering we arrived several hours earlier... More

It is on water and beautiful view. It has a swimming pool next to water. Next door is Bahama Breeze which opens for lunch which I had never eaten at one for lunch. I felt the overall establishment is close to renovation time. The bed was comfortable for me. My husband was not happy with pillows but I liked them.... More

We wanted a central location near Tampa with easy access to the Gulf beaches, University of South Florida, the airport, and downtown Tampa to visit the Riverwalk and Ybor City. This place fit the bill. Pros: great price, good location, free wifi which worked well, decent breakfast (my husband loved their make-your-own-pancakes, I appreciated them having whole-grain english muffins), coffee...

We stayed here while being surgery at laser spine. Very disappointed. We requested a Bayside room but were given a room with a view of the dumpsters in the parking lot. When we checked in we discovered that the air conditioner in the room was not working after several hours and several attempts to fix it we were asked to... More

Not a bad hotel. Exactly what you'd expect at HIX, BUT if you are using the shuttle to the airport make sure they put your name in the book. The manager told me I was good to go for the morning shuttle but didn't put my name in the book so the shuttle never came and I almost missed my... More

We thought we were smart to choose advanced low rate for 3 day stay. But went a little bonkers when it was adjusted back to a high rate when we had to pay for a damaged pillowcase. Be careful and just bring your own linen to be safe. otherwise ok.

I just stayed at this HIE for four nights. It was a good stay, no complaints. This a standard HIE, which is not a bad thing. The only thing special is its nice location. The hotel is located waterfront (waterfront pool, but no beach) on Tampa Bay. I found it to be in a good location as long as one... More

The cons: smoke smell in hotel room when entered a non-smoking room, but disappeared quickly; did not replace lotion but replaced other amenities (not a big deal); hot water took a while to flow in the shower if not taking a shower in daytime. Pros: free breakfast, spacious bathroom, clean rooms, wide corridors, convenient location, express check out. Overall had... More

Great location less than 10 minutes from Tampa airport on the Clearwater road. Suite is a good size and pool overlooking bay is a great place to soak up the sun or sit and relax after dark. Breakfast is basic but a good selection of both hot and cold options. Badly let down by housekeeping, stayed 3 nights and on... More

We stayed at this hotel the night before our cruise. We booked the cruise and park option. They hotel was clean and well appointed. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. The shuttle to and from the cruise port was well organized. We enjoyed the outdoor pool overlooking the bay.
