Location was great. Amenities were fine. Price was great.

I like the hotel in general and I rest a lot. The bed is comfortable and the room and balcony was big too. The breakfast was so limited is the only think that I talk about.

What I liked was the general area of the poolside and Giovanni's restaurant. The room was also spacious. On that note, the decor was outdated and the continental breakfast was average. The pool and jacuzzi was nice though.

the view was very nice , room was nice , the on site restuarant was excellent

Staff should emphasize even or odd number on signage, which way to go to your room. Continental breakfast was good. Room was clean. Bed was perfect. Friendly staff.

My brother lives in the apartments right across Vista Inn, so it was a convenient location. I’m from a big city in California and I’m not used to smaller cities like this but it was close to lots of restaurants, small shops, gas stations, etc, and not far from beautiful Clearwater beach! Property is well kept on the outside and inside. Staff is very quick and friendly! Cleaning service is wonderful. Don’t have anything to complain about !

nice place, no dinning or bar, said they are working on it. Noisy if in a room close to hwy.

Decent place near where I needed to be. Room was nice size and the bed was comfy but didn’t seem to have a duvet or comforter. Has an elevator for going to upper levels if you don’t want to climb stairs. Only thing was that on the second floor I couldn’t seem to get my shower water warm enough it was barely lukewarm or cold. The sink had hot water. Also, metal fixtures in bathroom were rusting. Complimentary breakfast was good and the staff were very nice. Parking was right near the building. Too bad the restaurant was closed.

Nice lake view and close to a several shopping places

We live in the area and wanted a one night getaway this was perfect room was clean pool was great overlooked the lake and the price through Orbitz was GREAT!!!! We will be going back!!! Ps even breakfast was good great waffles and fresh fruit!!!

We decided to book another night after leaving a positive review and the girl at the front desk was extremely rude saying we had to check out and leave and come back later and check back in. This was at 8am and check out wasn't till 11am. What hotel makes you leave and come back when you pay for another night?!?

Really nice hotel with large rooms and old charm sitting right on a lake with a beautiful view. Comfortable bed, very clean, relaxing atmosphere.

Large room, comfy bed, beautiful view from the balcony, very relaxing atmosphere in a clean hotel with old charm that sits directly on the lake next to a boat club.

Awesomeness Amazing Accommodating Beautiful Chill Delicious Exciting Friendly Great Hospitable

This is an older hotel that is well kept and on the water. Clean room. Good free breakfast.

Convenient location, very good breakfast, old and a bit shabby but clean. Very pleasant staff.

The stay was alright, provided what we needed for the night, we ate at the restaurant on site. Nothing to complain about, but nothing outstanding.

We do apologize for the inconvenience. We do have a sign that does say the even and odds of room numbers and which way they are. Our front desk staff does our very best to inform each guest where their room is located. Thank you for leaving us some feedback.
