We have always stayed at this hotel when visiting Tampa but this weekend will be our last. We checked-in this morning and were hit with a $25.00(+tax) check-in early fee! We have never paid a check-in early fee at any hotel we have stayed at! This fee is new to us and after questioning the employees it seems its due...

I stayed here during a business trip whilst in Tampa. As an international traveller with no access to an American cell I emailed the hotel front desk to advise them when I would be arriving and that I would like the shuttle from the airport. After waiting 40 minutes at the airport I ended up taking a taxi. When I...

We stayed here for one night because it is really close to Tampa Airport. During our stay in 2016, we had no issues and it was perfect. However, this year it wasn't as great. Check in took about 45 minutes because of the keycard system being down upon our arrival. All guests checking in had to be brought up to...

No longer a Best Western, and it shows. Booked room 3 weeks in advance. Asked for kingsize facing the bay on one of the top floors to avoid the tops of the palm trees. No problem from the person who took the reservation. Checking in, desk clerk tried to put us on the first floor. Sorry, all our king size...

I'm going to say beforehand that I was told that they are renovating and I did get a renovated room; so my review may be different from past travelers. But my hotel stay at the Bay Harbor Hotel was great. They made good use of the space in the room – I had a waterfront room, the bed was great,...

Changed to a bay view room. So glad we did- view was great. Enjoyed sitting and relaxing on the balcony. Hotel was clean, the bed comfortable. We were happy with our stay. The beach resturant attached had great breakfast. We arrived in Easter 🐣 Sunday and still got early check- in.

I wanted a hotel close to the airport and Bay Harbor was about 4 miles. Great outdoor restaurant with live music, cold beer, good food and a view of the water. Motel was busy. Desk help was fast and efficient.
