“Wow, a jewel in Tampa Bay!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We were planning to stay for a couple of days. Well, we ended up staying for 12 days!!! The hotel is located right next to the water. The suite we are staying has a spectacular bay view. The furniture could be updated but is in good condition. Clean and spacious suite. Full kitchen, stove, oven and coffee maker. There are 3 restaurants close by, Bahama Breeze, Whisky Joe's, The Rusty Pelican. The hotel has a little store that sells the basics, sandwiches, eggs, bread, cakes, snacks, beer, laundry detergent, etc. Laundry room with enough machines. There is a free shuttle service to the airport and local restaurants. There are BBQ grills that you can use. A nice fishing pier, my boyfriend caugh two nice ones and we eat them right away. Nothing better than fresh fish! Will recommend this hotel for couples or families.

Room Tip: Rooms facing south have a perfect bay view.

I stayed for a weekend with my wife for a get away weekend. The rooms were a nice size, very clean, and had a great view of the sunset overlooking Tampa Bay. The staff was great and knowledgable of the area. Close to shopping and good restaurants and night life. Gulf beaches not too far

We stayed here for 3 days in August and were pleasantly surprised by the space of the room (one bedroom with a living room, terrace, full bath with tub and full kitchen). What was most surprising was the price! Less than $100 a day for an apartment on the water! Great location - a short drive from Clearwater Beach and a nearby Target to grab some essentials (yogurt, more coffee, fruit). The only complaint was there was one packet of dish detergent and housekeeping comes every 3 days. We bought towels at Target for the beach and pool (pool towels are there, but they are more like hand towels).

A great place for more than 2 people definitely.

Requiring only one night in Tampa, I chose this hotel because I wanted a water view. I arrived around 9pm, and the front desk agent was friendly and informative and directed me to my room. The suite was huge with a full kitchen, perfect for a long stay. My balcony, where I sipped my complimentary coffee the next morning overlooked the water. The bed was comfortable and the location was perfect for a good night's sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closest to the water

First time visiting Sailport Waterfront Suites. Booked at this location due to it being one of the only locations in Tampa that was waterfront. I have two small children so the kitchen was a huge bonus for our family. The hotels website does not pay this hotel enough service. The grounds are immaculate, suite was spotless and modern, private beach was breathtaking with tiki huts and separate seating. Deck on the water had amazing views. I would say the only thing missing is a restaurant on site however, construction is in the works. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at Sailport Waterfront Suites.

Thank you for your most recent feedback regarding your stay at Sailport. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay here and your kids were able to enjoy the sand. We are directly on Tampa Bay and there not a hotel in the area that can compare with our views and sunsets. We look forward to your next visit to Sailport and remember you will ALWAYS find the lowest rates by booking through Sailport.com or calling the hotel directly.

Breathtaking waterfront views! Friendly and hospitable staff! Clean and wonderful pool/beach area! Couldn't have wished for better, or more reasonably priced accommodations! Fabulous retreat with my Delta Gamma sisters!

Sailport was really unlike any other suite I have stayed in. I actually went with a group of 100 young women (a huge and daunting number), however that did not even phase the staff. They treated us with the upmost respect and were extremely accommodating. The rooms were clean and always fully stocked with glassware, towels, and extra shampoo. The view was breathtaking and the little private beach and pool were idea for our relaxing weekend! Thanks again!

Thank you for your feedback and most importantly thank you for your business. Being an independent hotel it is important that we get involved with the local community and your Sorority was a great representation of the University. I am glad you were able to enjoy all the amenities Sailport has to offer and experience the best hotel team members in Tampa.

Thank you
