Decent for area

The photos online make you very excited to visit this hotel. Unfortunately, it's much different in person. The place was decent. I can't bad mouth it, nor can I praise it. DO NOT BOOK hight quality rooms they are all the same. There is nothing special about upgrades, although the ocean view is a plus... the room is just basic. Leaky shower and sink and the bed is uncomfortable. They also are stingy with towels. You are on vacation, between pool and beach yoi will shower more than once a day and hardly supply towels. The restaurant was actually well priced and very good. BRING TOWELS!!!! The towels they give you at their FREEZING small pool are the size of dish towels! Be sure to check out whiskey joe's across the water. This is where you will enjoy yourself and relax! Good food, live music, beach. I would recommend this hotel if you HAD to stay in this area. I had a decent time. There is not much to do in the area. I'd advise clearwater beach for vacationers.

Beautiful weather and beautiful bay view! Room was nice with a fridge and comfortable beds! Nice decor, large flat screen TV, and roomy fridge. There was a microwave by the ice machine. When I connected to the WIFI (with my phone) it wouldn't allow apps to work, possibly AT&T is not compatible with hotels WIFI. Pool towels were small and worn. Staff were friendly and accommodating. I will stay here anytime I visit the Tampa area.

Beautiful hotel, dusty bedspread

The hotel and room were very neat and clean looking. The room was modern and attractively laid out, with lots of space. It had a coffee pot, iron, hair dryer, misc. hygiene items, and plenty of clean towels. View of parking lot wasn't great, but we did get a good discount. The causeway location is perfect for those who need easy access to both Tampa and Clearwater, but not so useful for quick access to the Gulf beaches. Our only complaint was the dust that literally filled the air when we put our suitcases on the bedspread.

Mini get away

Great location, easy access from airport and beaches. However, Sunday's gets pretty crazy with the restaurant next door. Other than that, it's an ok hotel.

family vacation

The hotel is situated in a nice area. Hotel staff were so helpful, and were able to accommodate my needs as I had a little child with me and needed a crib. Front agent named (Darlin) was especially very helpful and understanding, she had gone out of her way to find a baby crib for my child as the hotel didn't have any cribs available at the time. Thanks

Vacation

Everything was great from check in to check out. The hotel is in an easy access area to clearwater and Saint Petersburg. The only down fall was the restaurant in the hotel called Hogans. The service was beyond slow we went on three occasions breakfast food was good but took a long time to be greeted and food arrival. Went for just drinks in the afternoon I felt like the staff just has no sense of ergency because there was staff around. Other than the restaurant it was great.
