“Short business trip to Tampa”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

I was in Tampa for a short business trip two weeks ago and I stayed at Sailport. The room was huge and quiet, fully furnitured and with a nice kitchen. Drawback were the wireless connection completely useless because so slow, and the location which is actually in the middle of nowhere with nothing in a walking distance. Apart from this I had a nice and cheap stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a very beautiful location (with beach volleyball and beach and lounge...), we really enjoyed the view from the balcony and the availability of a full kitchen. The staff is extraordinary friendly and you have a huge guest laundry to wash your cloths (75 cents) and plenty of parking space! Unfortunately the Wifi did not work properly and there is no daily cleaning/towel changing in the rooms (but you just have to let the staff know, that you need something and you will get!) and the beds are really veryveryvery old and not comfortable at all. For this reasons only "very good"...

I was in Tampa for a convention downtown. I don't like being stuck in the expensive convention center hotels and prefer to be on the water. Sailport has a great view, pool, nice little beach, and very comfortable condo rooms. I rented a 1 bedroom with kitchen - the sunsets were spectacular. I highly recommend this property and would even consider buying a unit here. Ray Spears, ex Steeler has a nice BBQ smoker running around 5:00 pm and he and his mom serve up the best ribs and chicken by the pool in the whole state of Florida. The hotel staff was very attentive. Room service is spread out over a few days time - if you need fresh towels every day go get them yourself but there are a lot of snowbirds living there who own their units and that also makes it delightful. Overall made my very stressful convention special. It's only a 12 minute drive to downtown and 5 minutes to the airport - perfect location! I'll be back!

Room Tip: All the rooms I saw had an ocean view.

Small one bedroom suite with kitchen amenities. Clean. Love that it's right on the bay. They have a little beach area with lounge chairs. I would recommend this place but it's probably crowded during the summer.

This hotel exceeded my expectations due to their customer service. They had my business packages delivered and waiting in my room (without request), assisted in jumping my rental car battery (and wouldn't accept a tip for it), and the overall front desk staff was refreshing! The hotel sits in a beautiful location close to some good restaurants and even offers free shuttle service. The outdoor areas surrounding the hotel are great to get outside and enjoy the weather too. I will definitely return and would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Hotel is currently under renovation, so request a room bayside in the newer (main) section.

What a wonderful place to stay. We had a 2 bedroom suite with a full kitchen. Great property, great location, great room, great view. We would highly recommend this hotel. Went to Tampa on business but if I ever went back for personal, we would stay here.

We loved it at sailport. The staff are friendly and very helpful, the apartments are big with a full kitchen, clean and come with a great view.

Plenty of parking, great value and lots to do onsite.

There is a big laundry room also. The pool is heated which is great for swimming at night.

I would highly recommend anyone visiting Tampa to stay here.
