Very noisy hotel. Too busy to get really good service. Not close to any good restaurants or anything. No breakfast. I had just come from Sarasota Best Western Plus and that is a fantastic Best Western hotel.

Dear Brenda F, I'm sorry about your impression of our hotel. Maybe we were too busy to properly explain everything about our location. In addition to our on-site restaurant, our free shuttle can take you to nine different restaurants in the area. (The rules won't permit me to name them.) If you have a car, there are at least that...

Only stayed one night for a wedding at the hotel. The hotel itself is beautiful and the attached restaurant was very good. However the check-in gave us the wrong rate for the room and was told since manager was not there we could not have it changed to the wedding rate that it was supposed to be when booked over...

We stayed for 3 nights March 16-19. The hotel was only 10 minutes from Tampa airport, with easy access from the main road. Rooms were clean, large and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The pool is salt water and very enjoyable after a day out. This hotel is on a highway, so it was great for us with... More

The location is good if you're coming from the airport. The hotel finishes as a whole were a bit outdated and could definitely use an update. The rooms themselves we're clean, but lacked views. Probably will look elsewhere if we return.

Dear tmoney1982, I'm sorry that we didn't meet your expectations. The hotel has just undergone a multimillion dollar renovation. I'm sure that you have read the reviews from other travelers that they felt it was worth it to pay a few more dollars to be on the water side of the building. However, you can sit outside of the lobby... More

This place was recommended by friends of ours. One stop fun for eating, drinking, pooling, entertainment. 10 minutes from airport by the hotel's shuttle. No real reason to leave the property during our stay, everything provided to high levels of service. Management has a great team.

Housekeeping needs to get their act together. Water view spectacular. Hogan's Beach Restaurant was lively at night. Breakfast was ok, had a new waitress. Wedding was taking place very nice at night overlooking the bay with sunset.

There was a baseball tournament going on and several young men staying at the hotel. They were very noisy and parties in many rooms, including the room next to ours. They were many of them at the pool, outside at the restaurant dining areas and lingering in the halls. I never heard anyone speak to them about their foul language... More

Rooms are spacious and updated, great location to enjoy the water. I experienced some issues with cleanliness of the rooms and noisy toilet and cooling unit. The elevators were very slow. The bed was comfortable and the mini fridge was large and a nice addition. Checkout service was excellent.
