Nice Location with great sunsets!

Posted Mar 13, 2017
Pros: Really liked the location. It's quiet, close to a beach, a couple of restaurants near the property, a marina, and also a pool if you don't want to go
Cons: Room could have been cleaned a little better, as the floor didn't look like it had been vacuumed.
Location: The location is centrally located and an easy drive to Tampa or St. Petersburg. We went to the Tampa Aquarium located near the cruise terminals.
We stayed for 2 nights mid-week. There are 2 restaurants nearby with ok food. The Sunset Grill, Patio & Tiki Bar is on the beach and we saw a great sunset while watching a large number of pelicans dive-bombing into Tampa Bay as they were feeding.

nice resort but isolated in an industrial area

Posted Mar 12, 2017
Pros: Wonderful view
Cons: Staff needs professional training and weed out the bad employees.
Location: Nothing. It's in Port of Tampa area. Slow moving freight train crosses the main road in front of the resort. This caused us to miss our return flight.
Resort was calm and quiet. Pretty building and wonderful harbor view. The food at the beach bar was iffy. Calamari was definitely not calamari. Bar tender had absolutely no interest in pouring us a drink and served the hotel staff immediately while he looked at us and simply refused to take our order. After 15 minutes of him looking at us and walking away to talk to anyone else we took the hint and left. This was typical of the service we encountered in Florida. People serving the public who treated their perspective clients as the enemy..

Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear you were not pleased with your stay. The restaurant/bar is managed and owned by a different company, however, we have forwarded your comments to their Management team so they are aware. We hope you will give us another opportunity to better host you.

Very nice hotel

Posted Mar 8, 2017
Pros: Just about everything. The suite with a kitchen, three pools, the patio overlooking the bay and marinas, parking right out front, the staff - great!
Cons: The only thing I can think of is that the wi-fi service was a little slow, and you had to re-log in every 24 hours to use it. That's about it.
Location: Ideal location. An easy drive to Tampa. Any waterfront activity you could think of. Sunny and warm every day. Spring training baseball, festivals.
My girlfriend and I stayed there for a week while on vacation. We chose Harborside Suites because of it's location on Tampa bay - we love beaches and the water - and because it's about halfway between Tampa on the north and Bradenton to the south. We're Pittsburgh Pirates and Yankees fans and wanted to experience spring training baseball.

A quirky destination with most things you'd like

Posted Mar 2, 2017
Pros: Modern clean suites - ask for the water side
Location: It's only a 15-minute drive from civilization and perfect if you want to park the car and relax for a short time.
This great little hotel and group of suites offers great value, modern, well-appointed rooms, pools and a nice little beach with drinks and food right there. Beautiful sunsets, warm water, and decent food. If you're wanting to spend a short time near Tampa, I'd pick this spot everytime.
