Was a very clean and friendly hotel, was located in a nice location not too far from all the places we wanted to see. A great clean room and was also doing upgrades throughout the hotel.

Overbooked and under staffed

Booked a Bay View room on this websitez on Saturday morning for Saturday evening check in. Was told room wasn't ready when we got there (at 5:30 p.m. - check in is 3:00 p.m.) Was then told the room supervisor was in the room at that time and it would be long, hotel clerk took our number to call when room was available. Didn't receive a call, so an hour later we went back was was told that the Bay View room was now having plumbing issues and that room could not be stayed in. Since they couldn't reimburse, they said they could pay us back by comping breakfast and one free drink. The breakfast the next morning was then comped to us a the restaurant, because our ticket wait was half hour. Really needs improvement!

Great location located on the water

We were looking for a last minute hotel and found the Best Western Bay Harbor. It was a fabulous location on Tampa bay with a great outdoor bar area on the water, sand volleyball courts and Hulk Hogan's sports bar inside. The rooms were clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again if in the area.

First visit to Tampa

We enjoyed our visit to Tampa staying at the Best Western Bay Harbor Hotel. This was a great location and a beautiful view of the bay. Rooms were clean and so were the premises. The shuttle was very convenient and the drivers helpful. The only thing that would improve the service is that they choose front desk attendants who have less of an accent and speak clear English. Some were difficult to understannd. Some were not so pleasant

Columbia Restaurant in Ybor was very good and they offer a dinner show for an additional charge that was very entertaining. Flameco dancers very professionally done.
