I am not the up tight, stuck up type. You can take my word for it. This place is a cheap motel dump that they attempted to remodel on a cheap budget. they basically put lipstick on pig. and that was the superior room recently remodeled room. Laundry machines located on the 3rd floor with raccoons in trash bins, in the year 2019 takes quarters to operate. If your in need to do laundry after 5pm and dont have 8 quarters to wash and dry, your put if luck because the front desk won't have any. need detergent? buy a small box from the front desk for $4 per load. erroneous charges on my credit card. they charge for evvvvverything that other places would give by Just asking such as an early check in, water etc. terrible
Location is the only good thing I found. But that is because it was only about three blocks from where I was to conduct my business.
This is a party hotel. The lobby, pool, bar, and hallways were full of loud drinking partying young people. The noise level was loud even inside the rooms well past midnight on weekdays. Room service was unable to deliver because their staff were all serving at the parties.
Balconies were amazing and pool/bar area was nice. Enjoyed having a shuttle to get around nearby and plenty of parking.
Hallways were dark and dated, but rooms were nice and renovated. Not much light in rooms and not enough outlets. No water overnight due to city repairs, then no hot water all morning when water came back on.
Nicely remodeled guest room & lobby.
No free morning coffee in lobby. Restaurant needs updating, has limited menu, clam chowder in as mostly potatoes, and waiting 55 minutes for our food to be served, even though it was quiet.
Great location. So close to the airport
It was under construction, but I'm sure it will be amazing . The service was crazy slow at the on site restaurant
Good View Nickel & Dime customers
The view was great... The shuttle drivers were great.
Torn up hotel undergoing much needed renovations. We had to pay $25 to check in early to predetermined room that was ready. They wanted to charge me to use microwave...The restaurant gave us a brochure that said happy hour till 7:00 pm... We came down at 6:25 pm and dreadlocked bartender was about to take our order then excused himself to take another order and in a few minutes he came back and said happy hour just ended at 6:30 pm while my phone clock ticked to 6:30 pm. Our bathtub leaked and was full of cold water so we could shower but they never fixed bathtub so we had to travel without washing..They zap credit card $100! for incidental 's...Nice view disappointing service. Blood thirsty to squeeze every penny from guests.
Good value nice location
Convenient, clean, updated.
That my sliding class door could not close but I could have called the front desk and I am sure they would have send someone but sue to late arrival I was to tired...
They had dead bees in their liquor bottles and my wife had two bees in
We’ve stayed here multiple times.. but the management here need serious work.. Our room wasn’t clean at check in.. Thy booked us on the wrong side of the hotel after we paid for Bayview.. Bees in our drinks...glass in our 3 drink.. Just a really bad experience
Keep looking. Not worth the $$$. Water pressure really bad in toilet. Supposedly in a renovated room... beds were really worn... half outlets didn't work. Cute decor... but renovation is not good quality.
Wait until the refurbishment is complete
The location is nice and my check in was quick. It's right at the end of the Courtney Campbell Causeway so it is convenient to Tampa and Clearwater.
My room showed age and one of the two beds desperately needed to be replaced. It had no support left in it at all. Thankfully the other was comfortable and we were sharing a bed anyways. The tub had places where the glaze was peeled off. And when I woke up in the morning I noticed that the a/c unit had some wires popping out, complete with the connectors exposed. As a former housekeeping manager, the tub alone would have been a reason that I wouldn't have allowed this room to be used for the night, but the wires are a safety hazard and if I were traveling with small children I would have been worried about them playing with it. The hotel is going under a refurbishment right now so I wouldn't completely rule out a future visit, but I would wait until all the work is done.
Great location not far from anything in Tampa. Very close to the airport.
Mandatory evacuations due to Hurricane Irma cut our trip short by two days. The food choices for room service were the same items offered on the menu at the Beach Bar, which was a very limited menu in my opinion. Our sheets were never changed, I could tell from a stain in a certain spot, and we had to ask for new towels. The mini fridge kitchenette piece had been chewed up and should have been replaced. Apparently renovations were happening because there was a lot of noise and incomplete-looking features, the elevator had blankets hangings on the walls.
Roaches in our room, enough said. Management did nothing to compensate us. Will not stay there again
