Great Stay
Great location from the sponge docks, downtown business and a park at the end of the block where we saw manatees during our cold stay in Florida where temps were below 55 degrees. The place is tidy and spacious and it had everything we needed during our stay. Communication was great as well. We would stay again when back in the Tarpon Springs area.
