From the outside the hotel looks a bit worn and one that you might pass up actually. However, inside the lobby was very nice. The room was clean and spacious. It had ceramic floors which is perfect with traveling with your pet. We had our own private balcony overlooking water which was lovely. We had a refrigerator and microwave. I wasn't expecting the hotel to be as clean as it was since the outside was so work. I would stay here again and I would recommend it as well. Although it is nothing fancy...it was clean and spacious.
A few cons...it was extremely noisy off the highway and the breakfast was one that you just keep walking by...not much but nice that they offer something.

Room Tip: I would've liked a room over the arches to see the sunrise from the balcony.

We ended up at the Vista very randomly, basically because they had availability on a very busy Easter/Spring Break weekend.

I would classify this as a motel rather than a hotel. They do offer a very simple continental breakfast in the lobby. Front desk and housekeeping staff were very friendly and accommodating.

All rooms have nice large balconies that face the water. If you get a pool view room, you’ll have less traffic noise. The traffic noise was constant but did not keep us up at night.

Small towels, but they do also offer pool towels, which is nice. Pool and jacuzzi area was clean and maintained.

Convenient location to historic downtown Tarpon Springs. Ubers were easy to get. Didn’t eat at the restaurant on property but went down for drinks and it was cozy and comfortable - nice view of the water.

First stay at this property. Off a very busy highway with constant high traffic noise. Second floor room overlooking the pool/jacuzzi and canal to Lake Tarpon. This is NOT a beach hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast in a nice lobby area.
Convenient to multiple restaurants but high traffic. 2-3 miles from Frank Howard Park.
Reasonably well kept property that needs minimal work to make it much better. Lacking the detail work. Would I recommend to family and friends - probably not - due to traffic noise.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing US 19 - very loud!

Nothing fluffy about this place, but it is clean, great location and a very friendly staff!
The restaurant is not open, and the tiki bar wasn't either, we were looking forward to a cold drink on the hot day we arrived. We were meeting friends in Trpon Springs for dinner so the restaurant being closed was not an issue.

Happy to hear it was a good stay and you found value in the property. Our restaurant on site normally is open, they just do dinner service though. Their hours are 4pm-10pm weekdays and 4pm-midnight on the weekends.

The hotel was easy to find and is close to restaurants with a movie theatre right across the street. The rooms are slightly tired but we only stayed one night and there was everything that we needed. There is a pool but we didn’t have time to use it .
Breakfast consisted of bagels, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, waffles etc and flowed well. We found somewhere to sit easily.
An average stay for an average hotel, would we stay again? Probably not.
