I was really happy with the heated pool, the proximity of everything, the activities for children available, and the friendliness of staff. The room service was excellent. The only downside to our stay was attention to detail when it comes to cleanliness. Our coffee pot was dirty from the last guests and our hotel room floor was never properly mopped. Towels and pillows were given to us upon request. I was very happy with our beds being made daily. The Wi-Fi in our room was nonexistent but worked fine on the property. Overall my kids extremely enjoyed our stay and the pool was excellent. I would stay here again.

Quaint and quiet. Good spot to get away and relax.

We had a nice view of the water. Parking was accessible.

Pictures of the inn rooms are very misleading. The amenities such as the private beach, close-by restaurants, makes this place awesome BUT the cleanliness of the rooms are sub-par to put things nicely. Initially booked a stay for three nights, then ended up leaving after one night, due to the filth, it really made our stay very uncomfortable. Our room clearly stated that it was a non-smoking room but it smelled like old cigarettes. The tile floors are covered with grime, greasy fingerprints on the outside of the microwave, very poor job on mirrors, dust buildup on all furniture including vents in the room. Anyone with respiratory problems wouldn't be able to stay here. Whoever is in charge of housekeeping should be replaced period. The rooms should be detailed cleaned with new paint and updated furniture, fixtures, electronics, appliances, and linens , then it would be an absolute charming place to stay. The cleanliness is ruining it for this property, this should be addressed with owners/management immediately. What a dissapointment!

The resort was dated, issues tv, was asked to leave beach at sunset. Called desk for face towels, was told they would send some up, but never did. Over all was disappointed with our stay.

Great location to Tampa Bay, beach, restaurants. And night life.

Room was terribly furnished. Sofa had many, many tears in it to the point where we felt uncomfortable sitting on it. If they keep such an eye sore in the room, is the room itself clean? No toilet paper upon entering the hotel room (this was remedied by the staff very quickly, however). Kitchen was not clean also.

The bathroom was really dirty when we arrived. It took about 5 hours for someone to come in and clean the

The room had roaches running around . Empty soda bottles behind the bed. Dirty fig. Dirty covers and pillow on our bed.

Great location. Loved the restaurants and the location near Tampa.

The room had everything our family needed. It was a mini home in paradise.

So much to do in the same place 😊, pool. Games, fishing, paddle boards, jet ski...
