Not What We Expected

We have stayed at three star hotel's before and our room was a two star room. The carpet was stained and dirty and the room had an odd odor. This hotel should not be represented as a three star hotel.

Will be great after renovation is complete

Room was average but will certainly be wonderful once the renovation is complete. We will be staying at this hotel the next time we are in town just to see progress.

Excellent Location

Enjoyable experience. This hotel is in a great location, close to the Bay and within walking distance to beach. Complementary breakfast was one of the best that I have had on my many trips to Tampa. Clean rooms and friendly staff.

Great Location Great Staff

The staff here made the difference for us we had dates booked but due to an unfortunate situation we came to the hotel one night early and they treated us great I cannot say more. Location was great to get to the beaches of clearwater, parks, football stadium, shopping, and for me across the street from Hogan's Beach! Next time in Florida we will stay here again.

Ok for the price

We got a great deal for the room, so it is hard to complain too much. The breakfast was ok, but tasted pretty good. The bathroom needed work on cleanliness. There was a lot of mildew buildup around the tub and toilet. The television was set for "Store Demo" mode, so we kept getting pop-ups about the various features of the television while we were trying to watch tv. It was quite annoying. We are pretty easy to please, so I was surprised that we were not happier with the hotel overall. The housekeeping staff were all very nice and courteous, but a few of the front desk people were not quite as courteous. For a cheap hotel close to a public beach, this will do, but I probably won't stay here again.

Happy hour at Bahama Breeze right next door was great! We were there during March Madness, so we went there to watch the games and have a drink.
