hospitality was not included in our one night stay, nor was breakfast. the refrigerator did not work. one would think at $140 per night that a continental breakfast and a locals recommendations would be the basics. the room was nice and location was ok , but I will be looking for something with a nautical theme closer to the docks...

My husband and I stayed at the Bavarian Lodge for the first time last night for our anniversary. We arrived at 11am (we knew check in was later). We wanted to see if it was okay to park our car in the lot and walk around Tarpon Springs. We rang the bell and were greeted by Nora who told us... More

Online, the Bavarian Lodge looked like a reasonable option for an overnight stay. In reality, the photographer who took pictures of the property is the only one who should earn stars for being good at what (s)he does. When we reserved on Booking.com, the check-in information indicated that check-in was 4-9 PM. However, when we arrived at 5:30 and finally... More

What a sad experience at this b&b. Arrived to see a note that we should not be there until 4:00p (not mentioned when I booked) and it was only 3:00p and we were tired from driving most of the day. Sat on porch and a man appeared and said he would let us in, but had to call for permission.... More

Didn't have reservation on file. Dirty. Innkeeper wearing dirty bathrobe. It was after check in and no rooms clean. Left without staying. Inn keeper also had flu. Innkeeper rude. Price higher than quoted.

Disappointing. The bed was comfortable but the bath in unit #2 lacked privacy. The toilet was a few feet from the bed and louvered doors with a gap left little to the imagination.The host lacked the friendliness / helpfulness that we normally experience at B&B's. She wasn't much for small talk. Breakfast was adequate. Location was convenient. We walked, about... More

Lovely remote setting on the water. Nicely remodeled. Only problem is that we could hear the fellow in the adjacent room actually yawn (& everything else). It does not make for a very romantic stay. Other than that, I loved the place.

Every year my husband and 8 of our friends take a road trip on our Motorcycles and this year we went to Tarpon Springs and staryed at the Bavarian Lodge. We really enjoyed the Lodge and Nora and Louis made us feel at home. We visited local attractions, but we also spent time at the Lodge enjoying the outside deck... More

Without knowing much about the place, my wife and I took an unscripted trip to Tarpon Springs, Florida in August 2013. This was a pure “let’s see what’s there” trip. Our first stop was the Sponge Docks information center where I asked about places to stay nearby. I wanted to get away from Route 19 and be out of the... More
