The good: it's a nice location with a nice little private beach with dining and bar onsite. The bad: VERY run down. As you can see from my pictures, the closet and shower had rusted fixtures. The room smelled and it looked like it needed to be cleaned as there was dirt in the corners. The WORST part - I...

We had one of the main flor executive suites. While very spacious, it was not as nice as the pictures. The first thing we noticed was a horrible mildewy smell. The bathroom had a huge soaking jetted tub. Normally, that sounds great but there was no shower curtain and you had to stand in the middle of it and hold...

We needed a place to stay while attending a nearby wedding (Apollo Beach). This was a great choice. A little hard to find, but that makes it quieter and more secluded. Very nice room, comfortable bed, good prices. They have 3 swimming pools and access to the beach. Also a shuffleboard court (needs some maintenance), tennis court, and basket ball...

February can be the perfect weather for a getaway; not too hot and not too cold. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and glad you enjoyed the beach. It's always great to get a little getaway from time to time.

The chain on the door was broken. The TV reception was poor. The A/C unit was so loud it sounded as through it was raining very hard outside. I could hear people above me walking the floor all night. I thought we were staying right on the beach but the beach was a long walk away. We were on the...

This is a wonderful place to stay and very high end. It is however somewhat out of the way from many of the Tampa Bay attractions. They have a beautiful beach and great restaurants as a part of the complex. You can fish off the dock and enjoy the day talking with others on the pier.

My friends and I booked this room as our previous vacation plans fell through last minute. We booked through Expedia. Check-in was super easy, however they did require that we pay a $40 a night deposit upfront, in addition to the cost of our hotel for the week. It would have been nice to have received some warning prior to...

It was really tricky to understand what EXACTLY we were renting. We made our reservation over the phone with staff at the Inn at Little Harbor (hotel).
