The Inn at Little Harbor

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It's just a short walk to the beach. The hotel has multiple pools. We only went to one, but it was nice. Beautiful view no matter where you are. The room was okay. It wasn't dirty or anything, just a bit old. Bed was comfortable. The only bad thing is they put a $40 a night hold on my account when I checked in. They said it would be back in my account 3-5 days after checkout.

Awesome time and location! Loved the Sunset Grill within walking distance.

The whole experience was disappointing. We had stayed at the resort before and it was beautiful, but the room we had this time was not the greatest. The parking area was not very accomodating. We had a trailer and had to park a long ways away.

Everything was okay except for the hotel floor was filthy. The room had no silverware, plates, or bowls. T.V. was very old and internet was very bad.

This is a gem in Florida! Will definitely be back.

The rooms were very clean and updated. They were surprisingly quiet and they had a micro and frig in each room. Staff was nice and short walk to pier and beach. Downside - LOTS OF SMOKERS!!!!!! (EVERY WHERE).

All around great place to stay,plan on staying there on our next trip to Tampa and the Ruskin area,thanks for a great time,love the location,and all that Lil Harbor had to offer !!!

We had a great view on the 2nd floor facing the channel. I would not stay in any other part of complex. Room only had refrigerator, which was defrosting and we had water on the floor when we arrived, and coffee maker. Wifi took 2 visits and a new router to work. Flat screen TV with lots of channels, but no high-def. Another analog TV still in room. HVAC system was always loud and had to be on because you could not open windows. Loud fan in bathroom. Our digital keys had to be replaced 3 times when we were there. The daily newspaper was not daily because they ran out in the morning. The digital clock was not working and they failed one day to give us a wake-up call.

The hotel was a little dated, but was clean and comfortable.

We use when visiting family in Ruskin. Best value for the area

I walked on the tile floors barefoot and noticed that the bottoms of my feet were black. Housekeeping not cleaning the floors.

We stayed here for two nights the place was amazing private beach, good restaurant 2, minutes walk, three swimming pools, out door activity was great but the room needs some attention the heater sparks a fire the room filled with smokes the fire alarm went off, the coffee pot was broken some little things. Check out was horrible they came 10 times to tell us to check out we were 45, minutes late despite all this thing happen the crew didn't do anything to make us happy.

THIS HOTEL WAS A PIG STYE ! CALLED THE FRONT DESK 2 DAYS IN A ROW STILL NOT CLEANED! HAIR ONTHE FLOOR DIRT AS WELL UNDER BEDS BATHROOM! HAIR IN THE SHOWER! TOILET WASN'T CLEANED BATHROOM TILE WAS PRETTY BAD ! OVER ALL WOULD BE NICE IF IT WAS CLEANED! WOULD NOT STAY THERE AGAIN!

Beautiful and cost effective great place loved it .. Thank u Orbitz

The pictures shown were not for the little harbor inn where your room is actually booked. My family and I were moved multiple times due to outdated, dirty rooms with electrical shortages. I was upgraded to harbor suites finally however the suit was not as promised so I had to move again. I went through 5 rooms in less than 24hrs!!!!

Great stay very nice and quite I would recommend this place to anyone

A nice quiet place to stay. The hotel has a restored late 70's early 80's feel to the room. The restaurants on site are reasonable. Hooks is OK with the Sunset Grill surprisingly good. Well worth the price.

Hotel could be nice if it was clean. There was dirty laundry under the bathroom sink, bags of trash and dirty laundry outside the door next to stairs which was there all night and still there when we checked out the next day. The room floor is tile and very dirty. Just after two hours of walking on floor without shoes or socks, the bottom of my feet were filthy. Location is not well marked and at night, very hard to find check-in location. Not sure what the resort fee is for since there are no extras. Free Wi-Fi did not work. Could be a great place to stay since centrally located across from beach and other amenities. Checked in at 8 PM and receptionist did not offer any guidance on what was available.

Room was rotting down, and the bed frame had hurt my leg. It was painful and also the staff there was a bit rude despite my disability which I am deaf.

This is my second time here and I love it. You have resort amenities like restaurant, several pools, beach, beautiful view. You have to have a car to get out of the resort-not walking distance to anything. I find it very peaceful, modern, and clean. Would not consider any other hotel in Ruskin.

nice view & restaurant: nothing else to recommend.

We had a great view on the 2nd floor facing the channel. I would not stay in any other part of complex.
