Great location

The location was prime, hotel is older and decent. Its doable and clean, if you are going to spend the majority of the time out outdoors this is perfect!

Near to airport

We stayed at this hotel as we had an early morning flight from TPA and it was walking distance to some nice restaurants. Hotel can be hard to locate as driveway is hidden between other large office buildings.

I would stay here again

The staff was very helpful. I did not like the room that I was booked into and they were very gracious in changing me to one that was closer to the water.

Very nice

The suite had everything but we hoped accept the view, we thought we would be closer to the water. Great suite, very clean, awesome workspace too!. Ice machine would be a plus especially since the ice maker in the suite was not on. The prices in the onsite store were over the top. If they came down a third they would still be making more than double on there products. Other than that, it was a great place!

BEST. BEACH. HOTEL. EVER.

Let's start by saying that my girlfriend has now designated this the MUST stay hotel for when we visit our friends in Tampa. As far as guest service Kayte is AMAZING. I think she's checked me in the fastest I've ever been checked into a hotel room before. She also gave me a list of places in the area that we could eat and shop at...SUPER helpful. The rooms here are perfectly designed for a beachlike getaway with a large kitchen/living space towards the front and a balcony with one of the best views I've EVER had in a hotel room. The kitchen has pretty much everything that one could want: full sized fridge (buy your own groceries, folks), oven/stove, dishwasher and microwave. Bathroom and bedroom were both exceptionally clean. My only gripe (and it's because I'm 6'5" tall) is that I wish there was a king sized bed in the room and that the bedrooms werent right off the hallway for a little more privacy.

great location, perfect for large family

The location was amazing, great view from our 4th floor balcony. Slept 6 comfortably (using the pull out sofa) and having the full kitchen was great. Pool was very clean and nice temperature.
