We stayed at this hotel after 2 weeks of reviewing rooms in the area. We were searching for a nice clean hotel to stay at before and after our Caribbean cruise. we wanted a nice, clean room that offered a shuttle to and from the airport, also to and from the cruise port, and also offered a good breakfast, and had a pool. This hotel did it all! I had some pretty lofty goals on my search and I found them all at a reasonable price. The rooms were clean and nice. Not super fancy, but that was not our goal. It was very nicely decorated and comfortable. We were upgraded to a suite on our return stay at no charge. We were also offered a shuttle to pick up and drop off our rental car. The pool was heavenly and the view was very nice. Scott (the manager) made sure we had a good stay and everything went as planned. The Bahama Breeze restaurant next door was VERY good. This is literally a 2 minute walk from the hotel. But after noticing a 90 minute wait for dinner, we chose to try it the next day for lunch and were very pleased. You must try the onion rings and Jerk chicken! The only thing at the hotel we all noticed, that could have been better was that the front desk receptionist (Claudja) could have smiled more. She definitely got her job done, even when she was swamped and the only one at the desk. Although, it would have been even better if she showed us the beautiful smile she had, that we rarely saw. That being said, this is searching for something that could be better. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay, and enjoyed our trip. When we come back to Tampa we will definitely return to the Holiday Inn, Tampa Rocky Point. GREAT JOB!
