Just this past weekend, My parents and I rented two rooms at The Inn at Little Harbor. I had looked at their website and the rooms looked nice and modern and the place is right across the bay so the resort looked like a nice, different place for a comfortable stay. What was my surprise when we opened the door... More

My husband and I recently spent a well deserved week at this resort/hotel/inn on Tampa Bay. We certainly didn't expect to walk into a room that had the filthiest carpeting I've ever seen. It was so dirty and fraying that it was actually a tripping hazard. The walls were dirty in the kitchen, the promised dish detergent consisted of one... More

This is our 2nd stay at Little Harbor and we're fully satisfied. We booked through our vacation club into a 2 bedroom suite in the Harborside Suites. The staff has been excellent. As with most properties, the appliances are functional but the lower end but I wasn't looking to cook a feast, just bacon and eggs. We like the property,... More

I chose this Inn because it looked cute and was a good price. The rooms looked like they had been renovated recently as well. The rooms had indeed been given new furniture sometime recently, but it is still in a very old VERY DIRTY building. The rooms smell disgusting, like mold. I noticed as soon as we opened the door....

The suites on the harborside are beautiful! Nicely decorated, and quiet. We had a studio which is roomy enough for a couple. Everything is kept clean.

Please be careful if you want to vacation here, fellow travelers. It is wonderful as it is quiet and peaceful although you will expect security to demand proof you are a current guest, and will kick you out about an hour before your check out time. This might be a good thing. However, do not agree to double or triple... More
