We booked a three night stay and the moment we walked into our room, we noticed it was filthy with leftover hair, dental floss sticks, and full of dust. The manager would not call us back and on the second day we found roaches in our room, crawling on the bed, the walls, and in the window sill. We checked out a day early and had to pay for an extra day at our next destination. Thank God they were able to accommodate us. This place is absolutely horrible, please don’t stay there.

We needed to stay in Tampa one night at the end of a short trip that mixed business with some time at the beach south of here. I highly recommend this property. Unfortunately everyone is dealing with the virus restrictions or I am sure that it would have been even better. The restaurant is closed for now so no in-house meals available. Front desk staff friendly and accommodating. Room in great condition and clean. All furnishings were up to date and in good condition. Very comfortable beds with good pillow options. We were upgraded on our room without asking. Refrigerator and coffee maker in room. Plenty of space. Bathroom modern and very clean. All of this for $98 dollars at the AAA rate. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

I visited the Barrymore to survey the facilities ahead of a large weekend event we’re planning for late October. Salina Lourenco was delightfully accommodating in setting up multiple table configurations in the ballroom for us to assess for both our convention presentations and banquet seating, allowing us to make educated decisions on exactly what we wanted for the event. We arrived earlier than planned and Salina met with us ahead of our scheduled meeting time, answered all of our questions and provided referrals for the services the hotel is unable to provide due to COVID precautions. I spent the night at the hotel and was pleased with my accommodations. We are looking forward to a wonderful event weekend in October. Thank you Salina!

location is ok by river walk however looks like a run down area and the hotel is very dated pictures are desiving (I usually read reviews but failed this time) We are currently here cant wait to get out. Rooms are old bed are comy think they need to do away with the yellow walls in room and halls. The bowl like sink is ok but if you are short good luck! No dinning at hotel so no breakfast need to go else where so bring something to eat. Pool open 10 to dusk. floors in the room are disgusting dont think they been mopped in ages spilled some water near toilet so wiped it up OMG it was gross LORD knows what I wiped up! Know one thing we are currently here until the 7th of Aug cant wait to leave. FYI no housekeeping if you here for 2 days so no fresh towels or coffee unless you call and NEED to ne in room to get it they wont come in to drop off........wont stay here again paid a pertty penny for this place, SO beware tomorrow can not come soon enoough

We have been here for a couple weeks and very happy with the quality and service. Notably, I needed some office space for a half hour yesterday, and the sales and marketing team gladly offered their space for this special need. Definitely a great group of people here to serve you!
