Close to THE AirPort with a free shuttle service and plenty of parking facility. The hotel need a refurbishment and as far as we could see they are working on that. The room with balcony was overlooking the parking lot, but we had sunshine in the morning. Our room had 2 queen beds. Also the room needed some upgrade. The...

Booked through hotels.com got to hotel & they couldn't find reservation by name or confirmation number. After 10 minutes finally someone came to help the very confused girl at that front desk & was able to pull up reservation in a few minutes.

Even though they did have rooms available, they did not want to check us in until 3 pm. Good view on the bay (if you manage to get such a room from the lemon-sour girl at the counter). We had a power outage that took hours to fix and we didn't get our room cleaned the first night, but other...

We checked in and the room was prepaid before hand. They needed a credit card for "incidentals", which was fine. They put a pending charge of $184.26 for incidentals! Who charges that much for incidentals for one night? The worst part is they still haven't taken it off after 11 days and no one in the business office answers the...

The hotel has a great location. You are close to the city of Tampa, the airport and only minutes away from Clearwater beach. During my stay I noticed that they are doing some needed remodeling and upgrades. Our room was located facing the parking, close to the ice machine and next to the elevator. Surprising enough we can only hear...

Stayed earlier this week and was very disappointed. It's a shame as the hotel has so much potential and such a great view of the bay.

However there is no vending machines (they have been pulled out with some of the cords still dangling -...

My girlfriend and I just returned from a 5 night stay at this hotel. Vacations are supposed to be full of adventure. There was no shortage of that here; every day had its own problems.
