Bay Harbor is going through a remodel, yet the main lobby and rooms were clean and well maintained. The people at the front desk were polite and accommodating. Bay Harbor we'll pick you up and drop you off at the nearby airport for free. Our driver was a wealth of information about the area. The hotel has a connection from...

Hotel is very clean. Room was excellent huge patio door which opens up perfect for beautiful days. door was kind of difficult to open. Decor was up to date. Restaurant/bar staff very friendly. They offer a shuttle back and forth to numerous different places which was awesome.

The hotel is on the bay and it is a lovely location. The hotel is undergoing renovations and is a mess. The room we had on the 5 th floor smelled bad, had a leaky faucet, a lumpy bed and no hot water. In order to even get warm water the shower had to run for 20 min and then...

Not sure what the bad reviews are about cause this place is awesome. Yes this hotel is currently under renovation, but I have a nice room with an awesome view. It's a 3 star hotel if your looking for the Ritz then book at the Ritz. The Front desk attendant Mckenzie was great not to mention I got a real...

I've never been to Tampa, but on a whim I booked this hotel for Thanksgiving weekend getaway for myself. Only after booking did I read more in depth or detailed reviews to see that the hotel was undergoing renovations. I can honestly say that despite the work that was going on, I had a great time. It's a quick shuttle...

If you are in Tampa, you need to stay at this hotel. It is 5 star quality, but easy on the pocket. Amazing food, beautiful sunset/sunrise views. Within minutes to anywhere. Highly recommend!! Very quiet, clean rooms.

Was there the past couple of days and there is one ice machine and ONE COMMUNITY microwave per floor. Our floor did not have a working ice machine OR microwave so we had to go to a different floor. Our hotel furniture had lots of broken chipped pieces .. Cuts and dents. The bed isn't really so much a bed...

The only good things I can say about this Hotel is the view of the bay was great and the shuttle drivers were nice. The rooms were old, dirty and smelled musty. The employees did not have a clue on what they were doing. One would say one thing and the other would say something else.I attempted to watch my...

So, as I looked for a hotel at Rocky Point, a nice upscale area, I thought a "resort" like hotel would be very nice. But no... The first thing I saw was an old carpet, in the lobby, inviting for me to trip (it had a huge dog-ear). Then the room I got overlooked an ugly parking lot. Okay, maybe...

I cannot decide whether to be more critical of your booking service OR the poor treatment from the front desk, so both will get a bad review. This is the first time I was unable to fine the actual name of the hotel on the conformation, so I guess that's the 'tell' to expect less than advertised? I was also...
