    The pool closed because of the resort letting neighborhood people swim there which caused overcrowding during the coronavirus. If they would have checked who belonged there we would only have 12 people in the pool

      An Enjoyable Stay on the Harbor

      My girlfriend and I chose to enjoy our one year anniversary in the Tampa area. The Little Inn at the Harbor was a great location to enjoy our celebration. The location was out of the way and serene; the view of Tampa skyline in the distance and the beachfront was beautiful. The rooms were clean and comfortable with modern amenities. The two restaurants on location were great and the service all across the board was exceptional. My girlfriend and I would definitely come back in the future for another stay!
