We stayed here for 3 days in August and were pleasantly surprised by the space of the room (one bedroom with a living room, terrace, full bath with tub and full kitchen). What was most surprising was the price! Less than $100 a day for an apartment on the water! Great location - a short drive from Clearwater Beach and a nearby Target to grab some essentials (yogurt, more coffee, fruit). The only complaint was there was one packet of dish detergent and housekeeping comes every 3 days. We bought towels at Target for the beach and pool (pool towels are there, but they are more like hand towels).

A great place for more than 2 people definitely.

Requiring only one night in Tampa, I chose this hotel because I wanted a water view. I arrived around 9pm, and the front desk agent was friendly and informative and directed me to my room. The suite was huge with a full kitchen, perfect for a long stay. My balcony, where I sipped my complimentary coffee the next morning overlooked the water. The bed was comfortable and the location was perfect for a good night's sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for a room closest to the water

First time visiting Sailport Waterfront Suites. Booked at this location due to it being one of the only locations in Tampa that was waterfront. I have two small children so the kitchen was a huge bonus for our family. The hotels website does not pay this hotel enough service. The grounds are immaculate, suite was spotless and modern, private beach was breathtaking with tiki huts and separate seating. Deck on the water had amazing views. I would say the only thing missing is a restaurant on site however, construction is in the works. We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at Sailport Waterfront Suites.

Thank you for your most recent feedback regarding your stay at Sailport. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay here and your kids were able to enjoy the sand. We are directly on Tampa Bay and there not a hotel in the area that can compare with our views and sunsets. We look forward to your next visit to Sailport and remember you will ALWAYS find the lowest rates by booking through Sailport.com or calling the hotel directly.

Breathtaking waterfront views! Friendly and hospitable staff! Clean and wonderful pool/beach area! Couldn't have wished for better, or more reasonably priced accommodations! Fabulous retreat with my Delta Gamma sisters!

Sailport was really unlike any other suite I have stayed in. I actually went with a group of 100 young women (a huge and daunting number), however that did not even phase the staff. They treated us with the upmost respect and were extremely accommodating. The rooms were clean and always fully stocked with glassware, towels, and extra shampoo. The view was breathtaking and the little private beach and pool were idea for our relaxing weekend! Thanks again!

Thank you for your feedback and most importantly thank you for your business. Being an independent hotel it is important that we get involved with the local community and your Sorority was a great representation of the University. I am glad you were able to enjoy all the amenities Sailport has to offer and experience the best hotel team members in Tampa.

Thank you

The staff here was fantastic and very helpful in accommodating myself and close to 100 sisters from our organization. The room was gorgeous as well as the view. The private beach was a perfect place to relax during our work week. Staff here was probably the nicest I've ever met at any type of hotel, especially when checking almost 100 of us in. Overall, there are great restaurants within walking distance, a nice private beach, a pool, and every rooms were gorgeous. I will most definitely be staying here again with or without the 100 other members of my organization. Thank you so much!

Room Tip: I was in room 351 and it had a great view!

Great location! It is secluded yet within close driving distance to amazing beaches and attractions.

They were very accommodating, helpful, and provided wonderful service!

We had a retreat and stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time!

Amazing place!
