Very clean room and Crisp clean sheets

Location is great with top shelf restaurants within walking distance. Rooms are SUPER CLEAN although the smoothed stucco on the walls gives a "semi-dated" look to the room. Full Kitchen amenities were excellent and beds were comfortable. The upgrades done to the rooms were done tastefully and YES, I would stay here again. Security and Staff were very friendly too!!

They charge me for my service animal!!!

They charge me $250 for my service animal!!! And was giving me a hard time about him. When I had his service dog badge. I've never had a problem with the place in my life. Which I will get back from PayPal!! But the point that I didn't authorize that and they charge me. Was not okay!!! I have over 1 million followers I plan on writing so many reviews about them.

Hard to beat for the price.

The room was actually an apartment with a balcony overlooking the pool and the bay beyond with the sun setting when we arrived. What more could you ask for? It had two bedrooms, a kitchen and a living room with plenty of room for the five of us who stayed there. The apartment was dated but the beds were very comfortable. It was easy to overlook the dated appearance. Their little store was stocked with beer so there was no need to go out in order to fill up the fridge. There are several places that deliver food in the area so we were good to go. There are also several good restaurants close by and places for nightlife. If you have a car I strongly suggest looking up Pinky's Diner for breakfast. You will remember it for sure. I will definitely stay there again the next time I am in Tampa.

Very disappointed

Overall it was ok. My 12 year old daughter is handicapped and I informed the staff before I arrived that she would be coming in a powerchair. When I arrived they proceeded to tell me her small trailer for her chair, was not allowed in parking area and informed me to park and transfer her on the busy street. After parking and walking back to the hotel, I asked for a manager who told me yes this was the policy. After not taking no for an answer, she spoke with someone else, and finally said ok, if it's for her wheel chair you can come in but have to park around the outside area. After the first day, the elevator was broke and we had to walk from the opposite side of the complex to use that elevator. Our room was nice but the attitude and way we were treated initially ruined it for the rest of the weekend. No apology was given, just acted like they were doing me a favor. I was not very happy and will likely not return.

Great view!

The view and size of the room were great! The parking was great! I wish they would have offered room service. The store is okay, not a very good selection in there. The bed was very uncomfortable and the couch was terrible to sit on. Very uncomfortable. The room was very very clean. The staff in the office were friendly but too busy to give good attention. Maybe they need more help during busy hours. I like the tiki torches being lit at night and the bonfire. That's a great touch! it would be nice to have more of a selection for dining close by and room service would be great!
