Very accommodating on short notice and excellent shuttle service from airport. Mimi at the front desk was super helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend hotel as it is close to airport and has beautiful scenery.

We stayed her once before. It has been clean, cheap, awesome views and great fun. Will stay here again for sure. The food was good. Bartender was fabulous even though some of the other guests were not so nice to her. Stay on the water view side. The buffet was expensive. It was very good but a little over priced.

Yes, it's under construction, no it's not the Ritz. However for the affordable nightly rate, this is a hidden gem. Staff was accommodating and rooms were clean. The shuttle drivers went out of their way to get us to Raymond James Stadium for a game.

Hope your experience is better than ours... They left us stranded at the airport for pick up for 1.5 hours...ended up using Uber. When we checked in, they compensated us by waiving some ridiculous fee called "early check-in fee" - it was 2:30...please I'll wait the half hour if there is such a fee. It's like they didn't even try...

I rented a room at this hotel for New Year's Eve and was highly disappointed. The planning for guest arrival on New Year's Eve was not even a thought.

Stating first that this was New Year's Eve so it was very busy...however, preparation for guests and mechanics of the hotel was something to be desired. We waited in line for 35 minutes to check in. The only two elevators accommodating the hotel were slow and very crowded; there was no service elevator so housekeeping, etc. waited with patrons. The...
