We spent the weekend before my sister's wedding cruise here (June 2009) and it was a really delightful place. The rooms are all suites with a small kitchenette, balcony, bedroom, living area w/ pull out couch. It was pretty comfortable save for that pull out bed (I used as many extra pillows I could get my hands on to try and make a mattress topper to no avail.) They had a nice pool and a nifty little pantry area with water, pop, snacks and toiletries in the lobby. They also had a free shuttle that would take you pretty much anywhere you wanted (malls, restaurants in the area.) great views from the room as well. Only problem was that they didn't get the Red Wings game (it was the playoffs!!! We're from Detroit!!) All in all, it was a nice little place to regroup and spend time with some family in the area. The price was AWESOME too which made us a bit wary at first but then we were told it was off season and the place was being remodeled. I'd definitely stay there again.

The hotel was in the middle of upgrades and the t.v. reception is now terrible.  It looks like the "old days" where the picture is very fuzzy and the images do not fit right.  I called maintenance, they came and blamed others saying they could not fix it.  Then the new furniture was being delivered while we were out.  The staff propped our hallway door as wide as they could, opened our doorwall all the way and then left both open for god only knows how many hours completely unattended.  We came back to find both doors still open, all of our papers all over the ground and no one in sight.  This meant that all of our personal items could have been free for anyone to steal.  To make matters worse they shoved my sons bag in front of the open doorwall and then it rained that afternoon!  And they didn't put the other furniture back where it belonged.  There were dirty mattresses in the hallways and workers EVERYWHERE blocking all of the exits out of the hotel.  When I called the front desk, I was promised they would "get to the bottom of it" and I never heard another word!  Very diappointing!

Room was very cute with a private bedroom, living room and kitchen with steel appliances(including dishwasher) and lots of pots, pans and crockery! There were even wine glasses, several small plates, bowls, cups, glasses and lots of cutlery. Room service daily. They even put our dirty dishes in the washer so that we had clean plates when we returned. Nice surprise. Queen bed was somewhat small, but there was a huge sofa bed in the living room. We got a room with an OK view of the bay, but some rooms have great views. There is a small store downstairs that sells milk, soda, frozen meals, candy, wine etc. The items were kinda pricey, but it was convenient to go buy fresh milk for our baby in the morning. Nice bay-facing pool. They also have a tiny private sandy patio and wooden deck with chairs and tables, a grill, some hammocks etc. Nice to hangout in the evening. Lots of parking. But one elevator was not working and they took their time repairing it, that too on Memorial weekend! Overall, room was a little cramped because of being divided into rooms, but we found it cozy. The price was very reasonable.

What do you know? We went back! It really was a hell of a deal, and apparently some of the condos ARE updated, because this time we had one with stainless appliances and granite counters, and none of that horribble wood paneling (though it still had the same strange long hallway). Still never had the breakfastette.

Sailport Waterfront Suites is terrific! Our condo was very clean, updated/renovated, well stocked and a perfect size for the two of us. We are 30 year "vacation veterans" of this area and were pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem. The most important "thing" to us while on vacation is the cleanliness of our accomodations...Sailport is VERY clean! The grounds are lovely, clean and well maintained. There is a huge, clean laundry room on site. The pool, deck area, beach and pier were very nice! You can't beat the location as it is so close to all area restaurants, beaches and attractions...if you choose to leave Sailport. The staff was wonderfully accomodating and kind. The absolute ONLY issue we had, that prevents me from giving it a 5 star rating, was the WI-FI connectivity...it's NOT good. If you need computer/internet access while at Sailport...you will be disappointed.  Other than that, Sailport is tops and we will be back!

If I could give it 3.5 I would.  Nice location and cool set-up.  The people are very nice and great view of the bay.  It's like it was a great idea with just a few mistakes.  The furniture in the living room seems kind of cheap.  The window in the bedroom looking out to the hallway is strange.  But the price is right.  Great location, clean, friendly and based on price a good place!

We booked Sailport at the last minute based on other reviews on Yelp, availability and price. We were very pleased! The suite was clean and spacious. It had a balcony that overlooked the bay and the rooms have been recently renovated. It had a full kitchen with stainless steel stove and fridge,d/w, microwave, coffee maker and radio/cd player. There is daily housekeeping. The staff from the office to the maintenance were as as friendly and helpful as they could be. We didnt have a car so we took advantage of the free shuttle service within the area. Tony the driver was very nice. They will also arrange cab service if you need to go further than where the shuttle goes.
The resort itself was also very nice. The pool was great with radio Margaritaville playing and is open til 10pm. The sunsets from the sunset deck were amazing and it was also fun to meet other hotel guests at the deck in the evenings. There is a 24 hour tiny convenience store connected to the office for soda, snacks, beer, advil, etc.
My only disappointment is that they do not have a restaurant or bar. Not so bad since there are several within walking/shuttle distance.
Overall we loved Sailport, would return and would recommend.

I would sail past this port. 2nd time I have stayed there and neither one was very good. Killed largest roach I have ever seen in kitchen.the night staff was very rude. The pull out bed consisted of box springs , with a sheet pulled over it. The"free"wifi was available in maybe 2 places.   Both in a hallway. So much potential for this place, but needs a makeover and some new staff.

The rooms are actually privately owned rental condos.  I am sure the rooms meet whatever the rental requirements are, but I would imagine the rooms can vary greatly.  Our furniture was dated, but decent.  They main bed was actually pretty decent.  There are 2 bunks in the hallway, but ours did not have rails.  Luckily we only needed the bottom one.  There was also a sleeper sofa.  So for about $88 a night during the summer you can sleep 6 people.  We had no problem with the front desk and they responded quickly to a couple of requests that we needed (crib, and our 2 year old locked herself in the bathroom).  While I was waiting to check in there was a customer that had reserved a specific room, that was not available. If you don't like your room, I would go back to the front desk and ask them to move you.
There is a portable bbq business that is set up by the pool, but we did not eat anything there.  There is a couple of close restaurants.  The pool was clean, but I would so undersized if the complex is busy.  There is a nice sandy "beach" area with a volleyball court  but no access to the water.  The complex is in a decent location to get around Tampa/St Pete.  30 mins to Busch Gardens, 20 to downtown Tampa.  They have a nice shuttle, but we had a car and did not use it.
For the price and amount of people you can sleep, this place is a great value.  Since you have a kitchen, you can save a lot of money on food as well.  Since it is cheap and sleeps so many, you always have a chance of having a noisy family or a bunch of college kids next door.

The hotel does not deserve any stars. The only 2 good things in the suite were the microwave and the refrigerator.

 The bed was absolutely horrifying.  If you can feel the springs popping out of the mattress of the bed,, and if it sags in the middle nothing you put on top of it will help.  REPLACE IT.  Besides having the bed in a condition that it was falling apart  the linens were of a extremely cheap quality.  All the pilling on the sheet and the pillow case was EXTREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE.  

 The hotel looks as though it was built to be used for either a sci-fi movie.  Or maybe porn.  Why would anyone with half a brain decide to put a window right in front of the bed that faces the hallway.  The stucco on the outside of each room looks very cheap. The carpet in the hallway, with the stucco makes the rooms look like prison cells.

The coach was about as comfortable as the bed. It was necessary to stack all three cushions on top of one another to be slightly comfortable

.The batteries for the remote control were held together with duck tape.  To use it I had to hold the batteries in place.

The hotel is awful.  If there wasn't a patio there wouldn't have been any fresh air.  Never thought it could be possible to design a hotel without any windows. There was an overbearing smell of cinnamon air freshner in the suite when we first opened the door.  Luckily there was a door to the porch to let in fresh air. How I wish I could rate the place below 1.  It should be -5.

ahhhh....what a relaxing place to stay.  View from the balcony was absolutely beautiful.  Walking distance to a few nice places to eat and watch the sun set if you don't want to do it in your room.  
No danishes in the morning like they advertise unless they just ran out both days for us.  They office is on the 2nd floor which was hard to find at first but we found it after driving around the entire hotel.
Staff was friendly and the room was a good size.  Full kitchen, seperate bedroom.  We slept on the pull out sofa instead of the bedroom because of the view.  View from the bedroom would have been to the hallway if we kept the window open.
Good rates also!

This is my 4th time staying at the Sailport Waterfront Suites, otherwise known as the Sailport Resorts.  Let me say if you are thinking of a "resort" in the usual sense, then this is not it. There is no swim-up bar, no pina coladas being delivered to your pool chair (no pina coladas at all, actually).  There are no scheduled activities or games on the premises.  There is no beach to swim in on the premises, although there is a small beach for relaxing and enjoying the sun by the water.

With this said, I keep coming back here. I LOVE coming to this place.  It is located 50 miles from Brooksville, FL where my son lives with his father.  This place gives me an excuse to be close enough to involved with some of my son's school activities and meet his teachers, while getting away from the hustle and bustle of NYC.  

The rooms are small, quaint and cozy.  Some of the furniture is a wee bit dated. And one of the chairs at the dinette table in my current room has a small rip in it. However, everything is extremely clean.  I have never had to deal with hair in the sink or tub (one strand will drive me insane).  There is a flat screen with HBO in both the living room and the bedroom.  

The bedroom is VERY small with a Queen bed -if there are two of you who are big and/or tall, you might want to reconsider. There is a very spacious closet in the very small room.  Some hotels have the bedroom near the rear of the room closer to the balcony; here the bedroom is near the door close to the outside walkway.  I have never been disturbed by outside noise, however.  

The people are fantastic and always accommodating. Big plus this time was that their rate had went up for this time of the year and I called to tell them about the lower rate I had paid on my previous trips and they looked me up and gave me a "repeat customer rate" which was the cheaper AAA rate I've previously paid.

I used the shuttle to pick me up from the airport. Driver was courteous and the shuttle bus was CLEAN and smelled very nice.

Check-in is on second floor and one might miss it, however, there is a very nicely placed sign at ground level where you leave your car in the front of building that says "Check-in on 2nd Floor"

People are always cleaning the pool and the deck. Grounds are kept immaculately clean.  There is free parking with a security guard on the premises.  They have a discount with nearby Enterprise, so do not get your car from the airport rentals.  Get picked up by the shuttle and then let them take you to pick up your car from the local car rental.

Free coffee all day long. Free, tasty packaged Danish (unless they run out--I make sure I get mine by 9:30am) which you can take back to your room and microwave for 15 seconds.

Best of all, absolutely fantastic view of the sun setting over the Tampa Bay. Gorgeous water, peace, quiet, clean air.

One last thing....it is true that all of the rooms face the water.  However, rooms ending in 69 - 79 face the water where the Tampa Bay comes inward (not sure I'm using the right words). But if you're in one of those rooms (of which there are only a very few), you will be facing the next building where the Tampa Bay comes in towards land between the two buildings and you will get more "marsh-like" water and no sunset like all of the other rooms.

Overall, this is the best value for the quality.  If you come not thinking you're going to a plush hotel or resort you'll be fine. Quaint, cozy, CLEAN, fresh air, breathtaking view of the sun, volley ball court and a small bbq/picnic area and a very nice deck on the bay if you want to host small gatherings; small store behind front desk with few groceries, sodas, wine, beer and miscellaneous items.  Free hi-speed wireless internet access throughout the premises. There are nearby beaches if you want to swim in an actual beach, a clean pool if you want to swim at hotel and you're still near everything in the heart of Tampa.

I will say that the very first time I came to this place, the bed sagged terribly  when I sat on it and the rooms did not have nice flat screen TVs.  I immediately made a nice complaint about the bed and they changed me at once with no problem. I 'm glad I did not stay in that room and let that experience ruin my overall opinion of this place.  Enjoy!

Terrible customer service. We had a long flight and we had thought we could get to the hotel and sleep but once we got there we were told OUR ROOM WAS GIVEN TO SOMEONE ELSE! They oversold the rooms, an unethical practice, made me stay on the phone with Expedia for an hour to make arrangements at another hotel, and didn't do a single thing to facilitate the process. "first come first serve" they said.
So unless you REALLY wanted to be homeless for a night, don't rent from this place.

My girlfriends and I went here on our LOT (Ladies Only Trip) this year.

I can not say enough good things about this hotel!

The staff is friendly, helpful and fun.

They provide a complementary shuttle (van) to and from the airport. The shuttle also goes to the malls (YES with a S), restaurants, stores and anywhere within 10 mines (if I'm remembering correctly). Because of the shuttle we ended up not getting a rental car for our visit. It saved us money and the drivers were nice!

The hotel has it's own private beach.  The shuttle will take you to a large beach.  It has a pool, recreation area, BBQ grills and gazebo.

Nice, clean and spacious rooms.  Room have a kitchen with full size appliances.
Hotel is not up to date, like flat screen tv and things, but does not have floral bed spreads and rotary phone.

We were very happy with our stay there. Try this hotel!

I'm curious to know what qualifies a "resort." A quick define search on google says "A place that is a popular destination for vacations or recreation, or which is frequented for a particular purpose." Eh, I don't really believe Sailport Resort qualifies then. The hotel is not even on the beach or near beach access. The "beach" area they have is pretty much an adult sandbox. The location isn't the best either, having to drive 15+ minutes to Clearwater and 10+minutes to anything in Tampa.

BUT, the suite itself was good enough. Tile floor, steel appliances, marble countertops, plates, glasses, mugs, utensils, cookware, even a blender & toaster included. The kitchen is TINY, but we managed to cook breakfast and dinner in the small space. The pull-out sofa bed is sagging & in need of replacement. Luckily, I didn't have to sleep on it. Walking around the place, you can tell it's getting old.

My stay here was free, so I have no say on the pricing. Based on the room and location, though, I probably wouldn't come back to pay for a suite.

Sailport has so much to offer anyone who plans an extended stay in Tampa. It offers covered parking for starters. Front desk area has a mini mart for essentials and offers free fishing poles to be used on their private pier. There is a private beach with the finest soft beach sand with beach chairs and lounge chairs for sunbathing. The heated pool is large enough for swimming laps and offers free towel service and restrooms. The water is very clean and inviting.  The suites all have a gorgeous view of Tampa Bay which is breathtaking. The fully stocked kitchen with every major appliance makes eating in a breeze.   There is a convenient trash Shute  on every floor and a large and clean laundry room just down the hall.  I was expecting once a week maid service but got twice a week service plus they offer towels and other necessities on request. The master bedroom has the most comfortable bed with large screen TV.  I am definitely returning next winter for another two months and recommend this place to anyone .........

This was a very frustrating hotel stay. We used this hotel for a stay during a music festival, where we really just wanted a place to come home to, relax and get some good sleep. The room was fine, nothing special but fine. The "bay view" was more so "apartment complex view," but there was a little water so it was fine for our short stay. The problem was the noise! It seemed the whole building was having a dance party from the music shaking the walls all night and into the morning. It was still thumping when we left at ten am. The bedroom is located right along the main walkway. Everyone going by sounds as if they are in the room with you. After realizing I wasn't going to get much sleep, I called the front desk to inquire about a late checkout. The uninterested desk clerk said I have to call back in the morning and hung up. Calling the next morning, I was unapologetically told there is a charge for late checkout (first time I've ever experienced such a thing). When checking out, the two customers in front of me were waiting to speak to the manager because they experienced similar stays- one person's pull out couch didn't have a mattress and they had to sleep on a palette. There is also no wifi, even though they claim there is. Icing on the cake.

I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at this hotel.  It was very late, about 1am.  Everyone from security at the front gate to the gentleman at the front desk was extremely professional.  The rooms are clean not to mention very spacious.  The best part about this place is it sits right on the bay.   This hotel has amazing prices.  This hotel is about 20 minutes from Busch Gardens and less than 10 minutes from Tampa airport.  I would defiantly return.

Sailport Resort

Sailport Resort is one of the places I stay when I go visit family in Tamp. I like it because the price is reasonable for the time of the year that I go, mostly winters.  Not a lot of people are around when I go so I can say much about that. Perfect for sunsets either from your room balcony or the deck, beach area.  I love it with a nice cigar and a glass of wine. Amazing views and a good location, the rooms I have stayed have had a full kitchen. The front desk staff are wonderful and the housekeeping does a good job and always with a smile. You have a small convenience store connected to the office for any little thing you might have forgotten and do not want to drive. They have a pool that I had sat at to read, looks clean but I have not been because I go in the winter. They have a shuttle service for the local area attractions. They do provide barbeque grills on the property ideal for enjoying an evening barbeque with family and friends, while watching for dolphins as the sun sets. Don't want to cook, The Rusty Pelican and Whiskey Joe's at not far and have the same great views. I go back once a year and still enjoy it.

Remember to always drink reasonably

Sailport Waterfront Suites is an awesome place to stay in the Tampa area, especially, if you are a family and appreciate having even a little bit of private space not offered by traditional hotels. My family and I loved every minute of it and we can't wait to stay there again. Here's what you get; basically, your own apartment, 'home sweet home', while you tour around the Tampa area. Sailport W.S. includes your very own full size kitchen / microwave area utensils included plus a refrigerator/freezer. Be sure to start the ice maker the minute you check in because there is no traditional hotel ice machine on the property. Rest assured though by day two you will have generated plenty of ice for your cooler. You also get a full size living room with a giant flat screen cable TV with a table and couch that folds out to a queen size bed. It would have killed me to sleep there but my 12 year old son thought it was, in his own words, 'perfect'. You also get a separate private bedroom with its own flat screen cable TV with a very comfortable plush blanketed queen size clean (inspected for bed bugs, found none) bed. You also get a clean decent size bathroom with strong shower water pressure. Thankfully, there is no resort valet and Sailport M.S. is basically a 'do it yourself, enjoy your own family style hotel. There is plenty of parking both covered and uncovered. Although every room has a great view we asked for a 'special room' because it was my son's 13th birthday and they accommodated us with a 4th floor bay view room facing the pool. The pool was plenty big and very clean with towels provided. There are no 'white sand' beaches because it's not a beach, it's a bay. However, the pristine 'white sand' beaches found in the magazines and postcards are mere minutes away. It is centrally located in Tample and it only took us 15 minutes to get to Busch Gardens. One last thing! While you're there eat at Nicki's Omellete & Grill only minutes from the resort. Def. earns a raised fist award...  \m/!!!

Stayed 3 nights.  Best aspects were location (close to many restaurants, shopping, and the airport), views of water from balcony, relatively quiet, fully stocked kitchen, living room with sofa, good sized TV that could be hooked up to computer to use Netflix, etc. and pleasant service at check in.  Little things that were bothersome included only one elevator at end that was very slow, relatively small bedroom, closet space, and bathroom, tiny tv in bedroom, furnishings somewhat worn, and slow flowing water in shower.

Great place for your vacation. Rooms are clean and ocean views can't be beat, especially for a really affordable price. My families first night was rough, there was a party group that was loud and made noise all night. I have a 6 week old son and it was miserable. Today we went and talked to the front desk. Happily found out the group checked out and we decided we wanted a larger room, 2 bedrooms instead of one, and they were very helpful in moving us as we had requested. Besides last nights noise we couldn't be happier with this place. Kitchens are also updated and an added plus. Highly recommend. Hopefully well make it back here again.

Nice location and kitchen setup was nice. The via was of a mango swamp and apt complex .. Not the bay.. There were other units that probably had good views but  not where we were. However the worst was that we had several people partying outside our unit until after 3am. The rooms have outside access so I am positive the security ... If they were working .. Had to have heard the constant, echoing noise created by this rude group. In the morning they said they were unaware .. Really ? Not possible.

How this place has decent reviews is a mystery to me. We stayed here while having surgery at laser spine and it was horrible.
We were shocked to find out that housekeeping is few and far between, it does not include this information on the website nor were we informed at check in.
They said that a full clean was every 3 days but we stayed 2 weeks and had to repeatedly call and request a full clean. Once they brought the maid who had done the shoddy cleaning and the housekeeping supervisor and made me point out the deficiencies in cleaning. I was appalled that my time was wasted and that they drew me in to their dysfunctional staff dynamics. They should know their jobs, the supervisor certainly should have been able to note what was missed without having to waste my time.
I was told that we were expected to clean ourselves in between the supposed full cleans. I inquired as to how when NO Cleaning supplies or equipment were available in the room. I was taking care of a patient round the clock which did not allow for running to the store to buy cleaning supplies and then doing the cleaning myself. They promote themselves as catering to laser spine patients yet seem oblivious to what would've required to provide appropriate accommodation to patients.
Other issues were the noise and shoddy, dirty conditions. Many nights after the bars closed loud drunk guests could be heard through the paper thin walls and door which had a huge gap underneath. One night we heard major fighting outside, we were afraid to go out.
The appliances were from the 70s it seemed, the fridge did not even close properly. The bedroom was so small that the dresser was put in the closet which prevented us from using the closet to hang anything. It was ridiculous.
We found cockroaches which they tried to claim were palmetto bugs,I have seen cockroaches before, I know a roach when I see one, they were roaches.
Finally. The shuttle to laser spine left without us one morning! We had called and informed the scheduling of the time however they left without us. Fortunately we had rented a car and I drove my husband, it was the day of his surgery so had we not had a car this would have been a major problem.
I was very disappointed and will choose a different location of we return.

Hidden little Tampa gem.  I live less than 2 miles from here and never knew this place was here until a trip back to Tampa for a meeting.  The place is obviously fairly old but has been well maintained.  It's great location next to Post Bay apartments near the southern tip of Rocky Point is centrally located in the bay area just off of 60 with easy access to 275 (& then 4) as well as The Veterans.  Rooms feature nice views of the bay (though ours was partially blocked by a palm tree).  They have a pool and a nice picnic area right on the bay.  They also have and outdoor fitness center (AKA an adult playground).   I will absolutely be back on my next trip to my old neighborhood!

This is a beautiful hidden gem located within minutes from the airport. The staff is great. The area is secluded yet two blocks from everything. I loved having tons if space and an option of a full kitchen. Great to have my whole family together. Security guard as you enter and the walls are well insulated where you can't hear your neighbors. Can't beat the amazing view. I will always come back here. Beds were super comfortable as well and everything was clean. 5 stars in my book

Can not think of a time my family and I had a better stay. Each and every time I thought it could not get any better I found out I was wrong.
Every night we sat and watched the sunset from the beach. Every morning we greeted the day from our balcony. My wife insisted on calling and buying a years supply of their body wash. Very centrally located in Tampa.
Night time check in was a bit abrupt. Probably just had personal issues.
Read about not haveing a gym on another tweet. Really? Your here for a vacay and all you can find to do in a huge city like Tampa with its many venues was exercise? Come on!!! We were beat every night we stayed and had a beautiful relaxing mini vacay.

We are already planning a return next year.

I'm local to Tampa and I am a writer. It was my birthday and I was looking for a peaceful beautiful serene place to stay a few days and write. I told the staff it was my birthday and they made sure I got an amazing room. I got beautiful but not peaceful or serene. The good news is that my room was amazing. I checked in on a Friday and things were lovely. The views were breathe taking. The kitchen was spot on - equipped with everything I needed to make my smoothies in the morning.  Great separate bedroom. Nicely done. The outdoor workout area by the pool overlooking the bay was the best place I've ever worked out  at 7 am.

Around 11 am , the peace was gone. :-( Totally disrupted by jet skiers from a nearby establishment. On and on and on. It was like getting hit by the noise of a freight train over and over and over.  I finally had to come in from my precious balcony and even close the door to dampen the noise. I was hoping that it stopped in a few hours but it went on and on. If you want a peaceful, restful place, this is not it.  I also selected this place for the free Wi Fi that never worked. I was disappointed. For these reasons, I would not stay here again.

We stayed here for 4 nights before Thanksgiving as it was time to visit some elderly relatives in Sun City Center.  I loved the idea of staying right on the Bay (OK, I'm a big fan of the ocean), and was very pleased with the Sailport from the get-go.  

First, it's easy to get to, close to the highway and very near the airport, making it a breeze if you were flying in late or flying out early.  Staff were all cheerful, attentive, friendly and helpful,  The room was clean, remodeled and failrly roomy (2 bedroom waterfront suite).  It was great to have a kitchenette so we could do our own thing without leaving the venue -- including having cocktails on our little terrace overlooking the water.  Even the tiny convenience store near the office had plenty of stuff needed for a snack or breakfast (milk, cereal, etc.).  The pool was nice (no hot tub), and there is a large laundry room for long-term stays.

True, the property itself is a bit dated, and the hallways could use an upgrade.  But for the price, it was perfect.  A BIG THANK YOU to the staff, especially Dennis who ensured a lost and found item got returned after I arrived home.  

Our time in Tampa went well, and we will return to the Sailport.  By the way, it seems like many people who are treated at the nearby spine center (and their families) stay here, so it's relatively quiet,

Also -- if you want to have a great dinner (or two), definitely get over to the Grand Hyatt's restaurant Oystercatchers.  We liked it so much, we went there twice!  It's just over the bridge, a few minutes away.

I went down to Tampa this past weekend (1/27/14) to visit my girlfriend. We had no idea how much of a gem we would find in this hotel. From the amazing staff (especially Arlene) to the full size kitchens, we could not have asked for a better weekend get away!

The location is nice and secluded from the roadway. Yet you still have a few restaurant and bar choices very nearby.  Plus a public beach.

They have their own little beach that includes palm trees, adirondack chairs, a fire pit, grills and a swing.

The suite was clean and included full size flat screens in both the living room and bedroom. The living room has a traditional style couch, small table and chairs, end tables and a coffee table. The kitchen includes a full size fridge w/ice maker, full size stove, microwave and dishwasher.

The only thing I would change about this suite would be the bed.  It is fairly uncomfortable and the pillows should be changed out for something more full or soft.

Other than that, our view of the bay was outstanding! I can't imagine a bad view in the entire hotel. It's set up to see it all from each side.

We didn't use the pool, but it was clean and included a deck nearby with adirondack chairs to lounge and look out over the bay.

We will definitely be back!
