Good condo/hotel close to airport

Stayed at this hotel when visiting Tampa for a concert at Florida State Fairgrounds. Its very close to the airiport but yet not much aircraft noise. Its on the water and the rooms have a balcony overlooking the water with a view over the causeway to St. Petes. I understand the condos are all individually owned and then rented via the hotel so have different furniture but are a similar standard. I stayed at no. 266 which has two beds - the living area was set up as a bedroom and then there was a separate bedroom. It has a full kitchen with dishwasher. The bathroom was small but functional. Both beds were queen beds. It was a home from home so quite comfortable and ideal for a short stay. The price was good and the location can't be beaten as its close to everything. Not high end but good value for money and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Check in and out was a breeze and I would definately consider staying here again. We didn't use the pool but it was very popular with other guests and there were lots of birds on the water to watch from your balcony including pelicans.

Sailport Review

Upon arriving at Sailport found that the pool is small and the rooms need updating along with the couch. Only stayed one day so can't give a full review.

Tampa vacation

Excellent and easy accessible location. Nice clean rooms. View from balconies to the Old Tampa bay is outstanding. Security is great. The small kitchen arrangement allows for easy storage and reparation of meals. Good parking arrangements.

Loved It

My wife and I stayed at Sailport two time prior to this stay and were leary about going back because of all the reviews I read. Once we got there we were mad that we did not stay there during every trip to Florida; which is every year. I assure you we will be staying at Sailport every time we return to Florida. The views are priceless. Staying on the Bay is unmatached. We fell in love again being in such a romantic location. Thank you we had a great time for a good price. We are going to bring our grand kids next year.
