The hotel is older, but clean and recently renovated. The room service breakfast was delicious, hot, and nicely presented. It seems to be a very busy hotel in the middle of it all. We came to ride our bikes on the Courtney Campbell Causeway Trail, but it rained cats and dogs. Otherwise it was a pleasant weekend.

I loved this hotel due to the beautiful view of Tampa bay. We had a refrigerator in the room so we had brought our own breakfast so that we could have it on the balcony. Great place. I also liked the Hogans beach restaurant a lot.

Excellent place to stay. Clean rooms, beautiful view. Restaurant was great. Food was excellent. Customer service, front desk, was excellent.Very nice hotel, nice clean rooms, friendly staff. Get a room on the bay side, beautiful views. No breakfast but there is free coffee in the lobby. Kind of amused at the Hulk Hogan themed bar-seriously? I would stay here again.

Located on the bay the facility is fair for the rate offered. The difference is made by the staff Nadia and Robert offer a high level of service for a costumer. I'm staying there at least twice a month for the last five years... Great team!!

Decent price, clean rooms, nice staff. If you get a waterside room, the view is amazing. Attached to the hotel is Hogan's Beach, an indoor/outdoor restaurant. The entrance hallway is loaded with Hulk Hogan memorabilia. So, if your a wrestling fan, this is a good spot.

We were pleasantly surprised with this hotel pick. The rooms were clean and the location with its proximity to the airport was great. You didn't have to get on the Interstate to get to the airport, a great advantage. The only downside was the music from across the inlet on the weekend which was quite loud and went a little...

The Best Western Bay Harbor was lovely. The room was clean and very nice. It overlooked the bay. The only downside was the music from 2 bars close by that played loud music on Friday and Saturday nights. Enjoyed my stay there.
