We spent two weeks at Sailport, January 17 to 31st. We had a great upgraded condo-type room on the fourth floor with living room, modern kitchen, bedroom and balcony overlooking Tampa Bay. Spacious and very clean. With an east/west exposure from our balcony, we saw the sun rise and watched it set. Nice way to start and end each day. We had no trouble at all with the wireless connection. Full washing facilites on the third floor. Staff very friendly and helpful. We were well-positioned to take day trips to St. Peterburg and area and to head north to places like Crystal River and Tarpon Springs. There is a small beach at the hotel, although no swimming because of the very rocky shore, and a bit of a larger one neraby, but you certainly need a car to get around. The only drawback, and it was minor, was the noise in the hallway a couple of nights during the weekends when the hotel gets busy.

Room Tip: You can ask for a recently renovated and upgraded room for a small additional cost.

My girlfriend and I spent 1 week at Sailport January 25-Febuary 2nd. We were so impressed the staff, and their friendly hospitality. We had the most wonderful room, that was updated, and very accommodating with new appliances, and 2 flat screen T.V.'s. We hung out on the property most of the week, because of the wonderful pool, private beach area, and fire pit! If you are looking for a place to relax, and a place with spectacular views, this is your place. I want to thank Jerry and Charise for our wonderful experience. They are a great asset to your hotel!! We are looking forward to coming back to Sailport next January. Craig and Katie, Bayport Minnesota

I was in Tampa for a short business trip two weeks ago and I stayed at Sailport. The room was huge and quiet, fully furnitured and with a nice kitchen. Drawback were the wireless connection completely useless because so slow, and the location which is actually in the middle of nowhere with nothing in a walking distance. Apart from this I had a nice and cheap stay.

This is a very beautiful location (with beach volleyball and beach and lounge...), we really enjoyed the view from the balcony and the availability of a full kitchen. The staff is extraordinary friendly and you have a huge guest laundry to wash your cloths (75 cents) and plenty of parking space! Unfortunately the Wifi did not work properly and there is no daily cleaning/towel changing in the rooms (but you just have to let the staff know, that you need something and you will get!) and the beds are really veryveryvery old and not comfortable at all. For this reasons only "very good"...

I was in Tampa for a convention downtown. I don't like being stuck in the expensive convention center hotels and prefer to be on the water. Sailport has a great view, pool, nice little beach, and very comfortable condo rooms. I rented a 1 bedroom with kitchen - the sunsets were spectacular. I highly recommend this property and would even consider buying a unit here. Ray Spears, ex Steeler has a nice BBQ smoker running around 5:00 pm and he and his mom serve up the best ribs and chicken by the pool in the whole state of Florida. The hotel staff was very attentive. Room service is spread out over a few days time - if you need fresh towels every day go get them yourself but there are a lot of snowbirds living there who own their units and that also makes it delightful. Overall made my very stressful convention special. It's only a 12 minute drive to downtown and 5 minutes to the airport - perfect location! I'll be back!

Room Tip: All the rooms I saw had an ocean view.

Small one bedroom suite with kitchen amenities. Clean. Love that it's right on the bay. They have a little beach area with lounge chairs. I would recommend this place but it's probably crowded during the summer.

This hotel exceeded my expectations due to their customer service. They had my business packages delivered and waiting in my room (without request), assisted in jumping my rental car battery (and wouldn't accept a tip for it), and the overall front desk staff was refreshing! The hotel sits in a beautiful location close to some good restaurants and even offers free shuttle service. The outdoor areas surrounding the hotel are great to get outside and enjoy the weather too. I will definitely return and would recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Hotel is currently under renovation, so request a room bayside in the newer (main) section.
