Ideal place to stay if all you have time for is a light evening meal, a bed and then breakfast before driving back to Orlando. Fish cakes and a Caesar's salad at 1.30am UK time was enough; Eggs Benedict were great in the morning, [a late lunch for me]. One complaint; pillows far too hard.

Older hotel in a resort community. The room was clean, updated, had a fridge and a balcony with a water view. There are multiple pools and hot tubs in the community and you have access to them all. We drove to the better pool. The maintenance guy by our room told us where to go and park. It was a...

The room was okay. The location, across the street from Tampa Bay, had the most beautiful sunsets. Able to walk to restaurants. Really a perfect area. Four issues - first, my room was not ready when I got there and I got there way past check-in; second, it was virtually impossible to use my cellphone unless I sat outside my...

We stayed here while visiting family nearby -- the three bedroom villa was perfect for 2 adults and 3 teens. We really enjoyed having the extra space staying in the villas.The balcony view over the marina is beautiful. We didn't dine at the restaurant this time, but in the past have found the food to be good, not great; the...

Building and rooms were old but maintained. our room is upstairs and have a balcony over looking the river/delta in the back of the property. Not located on the beach. Close walk across the street and parking to the beach. Can't swim in the beach adjacent...

We reserved the water view room at the Inn largely due to a Groupon discount. Pictures used in the advertisement of the Inn at Little Harbor were misleading, from another property. By the time we figured this out, it was too late to make changes. Room and hallways are tiled (stone), no carpeting. Room doors are under strong tension and...

The hotel is hard to find, and then you find out there are two different ones under the same name. After finally finding the correct place and the reception area, everything else was smooth. the front desk staff is friendly and very helpful. The rooms have great views of open water or a channel. The rooms are large, modern, well...

I was initially disappointed because the "all rooms have bay or harbor view" just is not so; ours was a view of the tennis courts. Rooms on the other side of the building on the 1st floor had a view of the wall around the pool. On the other hand, so many aspects of the facility were terrific I forgot...

This is an outstanding facility, on the waterfront. Alex the manager made our stay! Rooms are huge and well furnished, food is good, amenities complete. Two pools, a few bars, an outdoor spa, a good place for kayaking, plenty of peace. We will definitely be back.
