If you want a quiet stay then go somewhere else. Where do I start? I stayed here because of the great reviews but boy were they wrong. I got a room with a waterfront view. The view was great but that was about it as I could not really enjoy it. For $200 I got an outdated room, uncomfortable bed,...

For my wife's birthday, our daughter purchased a night's stay at the Bay Harbor Hotel in Tampa. We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is located on the bay and our room had a great view of the water, although there isn't really a beach to lounge on. The hotel was well-maintained and our room was comfortable with a nice...

Excellent the ratio price/quality. I have been in this hotel during the weekend and I found it quite noisy. Nice the place, arranged to enjoy the sunset hours. Appreciated the kindness of the waitresses in the restaurant.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect, the view was beautiful, the restaurant and bar were great, but we ran into a problem when we checked out. First of all, I had gone to Google to find a Radisson in the area so I could use my accumulated points. Up popped Bay Harbor Hotel, so...

I'm torn, because the hotel is a 2 star but the counter staff was extremely friendly and a real pleasure to work with. That is where the love for Bay Harbor ends. The room was filthy. I have been in some pretty grimy rooms, but this one was among the worst. The carpet was in serious need of deep cleaning....

We had to be up at 3am for an early flight and ended up not sleeping at all. Drunks running up and down...

We enjoyed our stay and saw they are making improvements. Our room was comfortable, clean and priced well for the area. Everyone at the front desk provided fantastic customer service and we appreciated the ride to the airport in the comfortable and timely shuttle.

This is a nice hotel. They are working on redoing the rooms. Ask for a room on the bay side - great view. They also have a restaurant and sand volleyball courts here. The pool is smaller but nice. It can be noisy on the weekends on the bay side as there is a popular bar across the bay not...
