This is just a quick review to say that Claudette was great and made my visit excellent! This place is beautiful and and the new pool is huge. The room was clean and facing the water made the experience perfect.

I've stayed in a few different hotels in Tampa. I 'd consider returning here if I got 40% off the rack rate like I did this time. Here's the good stuff-Very cordial and helpful front desk,(Shout out to Corbett) nice room attendants, decent pool-except on weekends, convenient location,average acceptable restaurant (no room service),water front with excellent veiws & free parking. Here's the bad stuff-No real bathroom amenities other than some soap on the shower wall,sub par towels,really loud on weekends, the Worst A/C -loud,leaky, inconsistent temperature (Tropical or Frigid are the norm). Unbelievable but on weekends they charge $20.00 (Men) & $10.00 (Women)admittance the real pool -Is that legal ? Mediocre mattresses and every day I saw tiny ants in the bathroom or on the nightstand. I'm not sure why the rooms don't get cleaned until late afternoon. Real ordinary food in the restaurant but it closes early so eat before you show up.

"Health and Safety Issues!"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed May 13, 2019 NEW
Beware - the website for this hotel makes it look decent. To be fair, the lobby, valet parking staff and outside areas look great in person. The staff at the hotel were friendly. But . . . once you head toward the room areas, the shock sets in. Besides the newer carpeting and rather sloppy dark blue paint job in the hallway doors, things are pretty dismal. The few pictures below from the bathroom in my room speak volumes. While the bathroom vanity was newer and in decent condition, the rest of the bathroom was just plaint gross (the pictures offer just a few examples of the grossness). While this place has potential, right now it’s just a dressed up truck stop with a nice water view. My words may be harsh, but so was my reaction to the unacceptable room conditions. Trust me, this isn’t just a cleanliness issue — the housekeeping staff can only do so much. THESE ARE HEALTH AND SAFETY ISSUES. What exactly was peeling off of the soap dish in the shower??? What management team walks through the hotel thinking these conditions in a bathroom are acceptable?? Disgusting. If these issues were fixed, this could be a pretty nice place to stay. I would even consider visiting again IF the guest rooms were fixed. But the issues are not fixed and I can not recommend that you stay here. I complained about the condition of my room, but was told at the front desk that there was nothing else available. No way this place is a 3.5 hotel, maybe 2 at best and based solely on the outdoor features.

"Beautiful view"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed May 13, 2019 NEW
Room was great beautiful bay view bathtub is outdated though next time will request a room with just the shower. Room was cleaned and everything replenished daily. The stair area needs to be cleaned. All and all the 3 day stay was good. I did get charged a daily resort fee though and for calls that was local, but charged as long distant.

"Messy to Great"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed May 10, 2019 NEW
I booked online at $114 per night. Great deal based on the video associated with the room that I saw online at their website. Once there, the room was not as advertised. It was pretty horrilbe. Small, no view, and below average. The balcony faced a big wall that was actually a part of the balcony itself. No ocean view as advertised. I went to the front desk and demanded a change. The front desk was short staff and it took about an 1 1/2 hours to change rooms. The new room was only slighly better. Our ocean view was now the parking lot and now the balcony door would not open! Again, I demanded a change. Finally I met my hero named Claudette! She gave me an option of two amazing rooms that faced the Ocean. These options were great! Claudette really saved the day! It's never a good thing to bait and switch!
