A family member who is a Tampa police officer recommended this place as a safe and quiet destination. There was security at the entrance with a guest list. We got a great deal on a king suite with a view of the bay. The breakfast at the restaurant nearby was incredible.

The Inn at Little Harbor has it all: fishing, manatee sightings, dolphins swimming by and a friendly staff, especially Crystal at the front desk. It is laid back and has many amenities; just remember it is meant for sun, sand, and spending time outdoors. Check it out when in the

Quiet, reasonably priced, no surprised stay. The hotel is a bit off the beaten track, down a fairly long dead ended street, but that's probably the main reason the grounds are so quiet. There is a restaurant nearby with good although slightly expensive food. My first room

What is the Inn at Little Harbor's cancellation policy?
Sorry, I don't know. We booked through a well known bookings agency so it would be their policy that counted for us. If you booked through an agency, ask them about their policy and if you booked direct, if you log onto this page, you will see on the right hand side a way of contacting The Inn at Little Harbour direct. Hope that helps.

We were on the 5th floor but didn't face the water. It was a nice quiet place with 2 bedrooms and slept 6 comfortably. We had a nice sized kitchen and prepared​ several meals there.
