“Nice spot in a central and quite location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Spent three nights with our two kids at Sailport Waterfront Hotel. The best is def its location with sea-view for all rooms. It's central between Clearwater, St Petersburg and Tampa. It's a good spot from which you do visits in the area and come back to relax at the hotel afternoon/evening, not so to spend complete days there. Rooms are spacy, kitchen well equipped, up to 4 people are well lodged. Internet was working fine. What we missed is daily cleaning, they do it upon request only, and a greater shopping option/grocery store, next Pubix/Wallmarts are 15 minutes away. And would be great to have a hotel sign at the crossroad close to the hotel.

Room Tip: The Building has the shape of the lettre T, so the best rooms for me are the rooms at the end of eac...

First of all the pool is very small and there's not enough chairs. Room service was never in my room. Very loud people in hallways late at 1AM and you could barely sleep. Feel bad for wasting $600 for 3 nights to stay in this low place with my family. Won't be coming back.

The location can't be beat - water views everywhere, easy to get to other parts of town, lots of restaurants close by. The security guards and desk clerk were very helpful and the grounds were really nice. I loved the sunset patio and the little beach. The reason I say it's so close to being something really special is the room itself. It was a juxtaposition of finishes - granite countertops but 80's venetian blinds on the windows, nice cabinetry but rusting bathroom lights, crown moulding throughout but only one piece of artwork in the entire 2-bedroom suite, everything so clean except the windows (with sad curtains), which were smudged so much you couldn't really look through them. The furniture needs updating too but the beds were comfortable. The door on the trash room could use a spring closure - maintenance kept slamming the door, which makes it hard to sleep in. I gave up by 8:30 am. I understand each room is individually owned so I might stay here again but try a different room.

Waking up to that great bay view every morning was amazing. The location is optimal. Close to downtown, Clearwater, and St. Pete beach. Extremely friendly staff! Overall great place to stay! Sailport is now our go to place to stay when we visit the Tampa Bay area.

Stayed for a week in June!! All the outside amenities was nice, the beach was cute but you can't swim there. The pool was nice my kids enjoyed it!! The elevator is so slow so we had to carry all our luggage and groceries up the stairs!! Inside the bedroom TV never worked even after maintenance came. I do housekeeping and the cleanliness left a lot to be desired! There is a bar in the kitchen with no stools only a small hotel table with 2 chairs was hard for 4 people to try and eat!! I also have an issue with staff looking in the windows at me when in my room!! Room was very noisy and it was hard to sleep especially since my tv didn't work to drown out the noise!! The patio is nice to sit out on at night with a nice view of the water. Sailport is close to everything so that was a plus!!

I don't understand any of the negative reviews, especially about mildew smells! There were NONE! And I am HIGHLY allergic! I had a one bedroom condo and my friends had a 2 bedroom and NEITHER of them smelled. I love the fact that every room has a view....so beautiful! I liked the fact that they had an attendant for anyone who came on the property...very nice man.
The pool was nice...the beach area was even better with the evening breeze....
My only complaint was the slow elevator. But overall, GREAT STAY and I will be back.

Also, very nice location....easy trip to the beach as the causeway is right there at the red light.

But overall, GREAT STAY and I will be back.

Room Tip: Level 3 was where we stayed. It was quiet and just so nice! LOVED IT!
