I was quite disappointed with our stay. For what we paid, I do not feel as though we received a good value. First of all, the hotel is very outdated, even though I read they recently underwent a renovation. Secondly, the hotel only provide one hand towel, two large towels, and only one bar of soap. So, my wife and...

We absolutely loved the hotel. The view was amazing. I read on here before booking to not sleep on the bay view side because the bar was "too loud". That was far from the truth. It was beautiful. Seemed pretty close to everything we needed to go to. The restaurant attached was pretty good too. Will definitely stay again.

Okay - lots of mixed reviews on this place, but we booked last minute and didn't have many choices. The hotel is older and it looks like they are maybe doing some updating. Conveniently located to the Tampa airport. The pool was nice and clean...and boy was it heated when we were there...almost a cross between a heated pool and...

Rooms face the parking lot (not so good) or the bay (pretty view). If you get a bay view room don't expect to get to sleep until after 11:00 pm unless you have a good set of earplugs. Bar across the cove has BIG TIME speakers and they party hard over there. VERY LOUD in the hotel rooms! Room not...

We stayed here 1 night at the beginning of our vacation and 1 night at the end. Clean, comfortable rooms and helpful staff.
