Nice hotel close to the beach

Posted Nov 14, 2014
Our stay was short as we were just traveling through. The beds were wonderfully comfortable and the room service breakfast was delish, and surprisingly the same price as the on-site restaurant.

Nice hotel, close to Tampa airport

Posted Nov 14, 2014
Pros: Location. Setting. Restaurant next door.
Cons: Friendliness of reception desk staff. Never once smiled, nor seemed eager to assist.
Great place to stay upon arriving in Tampa. Lovely outdoor pool setting. Enjoyed a long walk along the bay.

Bugs in bed

Posted Nov 12, 2014
Hotel seemed ok at first though a little outdated. Aftee lounging in our bed we spotted several black bugs on the pillow and mattress that looked like bed bugs to us. Absolutely disgusting. The management doesn't seem to care or believe that this is an issues which is very concerning. Stay away.

Pleasant hotel w/comfy beds

Posted Nov 9, 2014
Pros: Took lots of pics--lovely view (even though it was cold/windy on our visit). Mini-fridge & wifi were greatly appreciated!
Location: Took a walk along the nearby beaches & collected sea shells. Too cool to swim but the pool & sandy beaches looked inviting. Nice gift shop!
We only stayed overnight & had a city-view room; the beds were very comfy & the linens lightweight but warm (it turned out to be a chilly couple of days!). Our cabbie didn't speak fluent English & had trouble finding the hotel until I explained it was next to Hogan Beach :-) The Hulk Hogan museum/restaurant/bar attached to the hotel was fun & the food was tasty--good thing since there's no alternative dining venue (other than the six pizza menus pushed under our door), unless you hop a cab downtown.

Not pleased

Posted Nov 7, 2014
We are a bilingual couple. The staff was speaking soanish around us. We over heard them using profanities about a twelve year old girl who was with our wedding party. She had spilled a cup of coffee on herself. No one rushed over to help her, or to help at all. Instead just called her a few choice words.

Nice hotel, easy access to airport

Posted Nov 2, 2014
Pros: Easy access to Tampa airport, and Clearwater beach.
Location: Location is great, easy to get around the area. Restaurant onsite, as well as beach volleyball, and a nice little outside bar.
Very nice hotel, second time staying at this hotel. Was able to upgrade to a bayside view room easily. Staff is very friendly and very accommodating. Love the fact the hotel is so close to the Tampa airport, and easy drive (20-25 minutes) to Clearwater. Restaurant was decently priced, and meals were very good. I want recommend this hotel to travelers.

Great View, Poor Everything Else

Posted Oct 31, 2014
Pros: Great view of the bay, clean room, always had hot water in the shower.
Cons: The noise! You could hear pounding music at all hours of the night from the bar across the bay and from Hogan's beach.
Location: There are plenty of things to do all over Tampa.
My room had an excellent view of the bay. However, the staff was not friendly or helpful, there was a lot of noise, parking was not easy to find, and the food at Hogan's beach is nothing to rave about. Overall, I would not stay at this hotel again.

Great location to Airport

Posted Oct 29, 2014
Pros: Convenient to airport and that you can sit by pool and see the bay. Hogan's next door had good food at a reasonable price.
Cons: Complimentary breakfast.
This was my second time staying at this location. It's close to airport, has airport shuttle and a nice pool overlooking the bay. The only negative and hotel has no control over it. The bar across the bay from them has jet ski rentals and they were very noisy (not sure if they were just really obnoxious renters). Took away from quite pool time.
