We had an awesome time. We enjoyed the fitness room, the pool, the restaurant, the pier, Hulk Hogan's Beach and also Whiskey Joe's(which is across the Bay) and easy to get to as well by walking or driving. the food at both places was fresh and delicious!! Check in and check out was fast and easy!!!! Every where we went, we were treated with courtesy, professionalism and given the utmost attention and personal service. LOVED IT!!!!

Reasonably priced, clean and great location. You can go into downtown Tampa, or over to Clearwater within minutes...or travel south to Fort Myers. Has an attached retaurant that is owned by Hulk Hogan which has food food. Would reccommend and stay again.

Room Tip: Get a Bay Side room and pay the extra...it's worth the money.

We had stayed at this hotel once before and liked it because of the water views and the proximity to the airport. However our last stay was during the week. Our recent stay was on a Saturday night and it was not pleasant! The hotel was still fine (though a little dated), but there is a restaurant/bar across the water that had a band playing. The music was so loud, that even with our sliding glass door closed and earplugs in, we were unable to sleep due to the noise. The pounding bass kept us up until almost 2am, when they finally stopped playing. Considering we had to get up at 5:30am to catch a flight, this was definitely not a good situation. If you stay here on the weekend, don't get a room overlooking the water!!

Dear EricaMinnesota_US,

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay with us. Since you enjoyed the hotel the way it is, though a little dated, wait until you see it after our multimillion dollar renovation. I'm sorry that the noise from across the water kept you awake. If that happens the next time, call the front desk. They will notify the Tampa Police Department, which enforces the noise ordinance. We're looking forward to seeing you again in the future.

Nice hotel, on the bay. Friendly Clean Undergoing renovations. Nice balcony and view of the bay. Great value for the money. Food is great. Convenient to Tampa and close to airport. Parking is easy. Like the big deck that overlooks bay. Public beach a block away. Beds are comfortable. Don't really hear the neighbors in rooms beside you.

Hotel right on Tampa Bay, amazing views.... Needs revamping, but could be fantastic for a family. Internet wax sketchy as I was there for business, mildly inconvenient. Close to airport and stadium, and again, million dollar view.

Thank you for your review and thank you for posting the picture. So many guests take that same shot to send to their family and friends. I am pleased to announce to you that the renovation of all our guest rooms has started. By the time of your next visit, we should have one available for you and we look forward to seeing you again.
