Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The hotel is well worn, ice machine only every other floor (our floor was broken). This is a party hotel with a pool themed venue attached. If you want to sleep, find somewhere else. Customers were very rude up until dawn. Walls are so thin you can participate in others conversations....or party through the walls. Hotel staff is not engaged at all. Parking lot is compressed and if you have a large and wide vehicle, it will be difficult to park. Lots of bad behavior in the hotel and parking lot. Find somewhere else if you want to sleep.

Thank you for providing us feedback. We offer a unique experience on the weekends with WTR Pool that many of our guests enjoy. While this may not have been the experience you expected please know during the week and after weekend pool season ends in September, WTR Pool is a typical resort pool environment.

We didn't know that all the bad reviews it got were true. In one night we changed our room 4 times! The first room's air conditioner was broken. In the second room, the toilet wouldn't flush, and it had to be filled with a bucket (we used the ice bucket). The third room had no shower abilities, and the key fob scanner to enter the room didn't work so if you left you were locked out, and maintenance is not on the property to save you. The last room had slow drains so each of the three adults had to wait 30 mins or more to shower and do their business. I spent the entire night packing and unpacking, moving from room to room, or begging the front desk to please look into why things weren't working. In my 49 years of existence, this was the worst experience. All hotels were booked for July 4th holiday weekend. The hotel has potential but management needs to get the ish together.

I NEVER write reviews but I was sooooo disappointed with my stay that I definitely wanted to share. On arrival there was people smoking weed literally in the hallway! It was all that you can smell throughout the Hallways. It was so intense.In the morning, the hallway smelt like garbage. The room itself wasn’t bad how ever, the property is definitely under-kept. Not what I expected at all.

I must start this review by saying that the staff was, by and large, very kind and did their best...but this hotel is not what the website suggests! We arrived and looked up at what appeared at first to be a construction project...but there was no one working...just broken windows boarded up and temporary supports propping up all of the end rooms on either side. We parked and as we unloaded the car, we saw a discarded box of condoms...that should have been a clue. Before my arrival, I phoned the front desk 7 times to check on the availability of renting cabanas for a relaxing afternoon. Each and every time, I was placed on hold for 10 minutes and then disconnected. I reached out via e-mail...I was given generic information for the first answer and the phone number of the "Cabana Manager" the second reply. "Joey" did not answer, so I left a voicemail with my question...he replied with a texted "Who this?" (I did have the correct number) and "Hey" and then no answer. The grounds were in rough shape...broken, dirty pavers along the edge of the pool we were able to use...no cabanas...the beautiful cabanas on the website actually belong to the WTR Pool Restaurant attached to the hotel...and as it turns out, we could have rented a Cabana for the day... at the cost of $750. ($250 for the cabana and $500 for the required food and beverage purchase) The last issue was the AC...it worked, loudly, but while it did cool, it did not remove moisture from the air...so everything was moist...all of our clothing, the bedding, the floor... Short story: the lovely view was not worth the stay.

I was so excited about this hotel when booking. I was looking forward to a relaxing weekend by the water, but unfortunately it wasn't. This is a party hotel due to the connected restaurant. The whole outside smelled of weed, and could not spend a lot of time on our balcony because the people next door was smoking weed and we couldn't stand the smell. Lots of people making noise in the hallways at 3am in the morning.

First the good. Fun, easy, convenient location. Was in town to enjoy some local attractions and it was a good base from a travel/convenience perspective. The lobby was nice. The bad. The place looks almost nothing like the slick video and pictures on their website. It is an old, run down property they desperately are trying to pass off as some sort of mid century modern chic kind of thing. The pool are was literally a health hazard. Broken tiles laying around the entrance/exit of the pool. They use rocks for mulch in the trees and they spread out over the pool deck so you're stepping barefoot on little pebbles. Literally a pain. I got a waterfront room in order to be able to walk out of my room and enjoy the view etc. The door was so old, broken and crappy my 10 year old son couldn't even budge it. It took all of my strength to open and shut the door. Just crappy. But the biggest frustration was my toilet. The levers in the bowl were not installed properly, so when you flushed the toilet would continue running. You then jiggle the handle to stop the toilet from running (which was loud and annoying, not to mention wasteful) and the internal levers that allow for flushing become detached, requiring you to lift the lid off of the bowl and reattach them. After a couple of instances I realized there was a problem. I went to the front desk FOUR TIMES during the 3 days I was there and it still wasn't fixed by the time I left. They couldn't have cared less. They didn't listen to me when I described the problem. I'm sure, if they attempted to fix it at all, they just did a quick reattach and off they went. But the problem persisted. I didn't ask them for anything. I didn't want anything. I just didn't want to have to lift the lid off of the damn toilet in the middle of taking a cr*p! Their dismissive attitude and inability to fix the toilet was unlike anything I've experienced at what I though would be a decent hotel. There are very nice, new, modern options within a few hundred yards of this place. Do yourself a favor and look there.

I was beyond excited about my trip to Tampa, and extremely excited about this hotel. Upon arrival, man I was just disappointed. The hotel is in a pretty cool spot, as it relates to the location on the water. Whiskey joes is walking distance and that was alright. The room itself… extremely underwhelming for what I paid. I’ve never been so disappointed in a room that cost me so much money. It wasn’t really clean and overall was pretty basic. There was nothing exciting about this place at all. The drinks were pricey and we got searched on our way into the adult pool area. All of the cabanas and table areas required you to pay for them, I can’t remember how much but it was comparable to vegas pricing. The one thing I appreciated from the hotel, they allowed me to check in extremely early as my flight arrived early from Los Angeles. That almost made up for everything else. Overall just too expensive for what it is and the pictures make it appear much more glamorous than it really is.

If you have a boat, it's great. We docked just up the road on the causeway and pulled right up to the hotel boat dock. The lobby, gym, room, pool was all nice. However repairs are needed on some common areas. Sasha at the front desk was great. Christian at the breakfast spot was great too!

I checked into the hotel Sunday, May 1st for a friend's birthday. Three hours later when I was sitting by the pool area the head of security came over to me and said that the hotel management asked me to leave the hotel. They gave me reason for this. I had to go to my room clean everything out. I went downstairs under escort to the front desk and the Front Desk manager said the say thing. My reservation was cancelled and I had to leave. Nothing was said to.me as why I had to leave or anything given to me writing. Today I went to the hotel to see a friend and help her with the cost of the room and the same security person came over to me and said I was trespassed from the hotel and I couldn't stay here. I promptly said I am not staying here but a friend was. I do not recommend this place to anyone.
