This is a great place to stay. Clean rooms with microwave, small fridge, and a small kitchen area with silverware and so forth. Most rooms do not have a lanai, but you can sit out on the walkway and still see the ocean. Location is great. Across the street from the beach and they have free lounge chairs and umbrellas....

Rooms were not super fancy but were spacious, clean and had everything we needed. Location is fantastic! Walking distance to several restaurants/shops. Staff was super...

I enjoyed the easy Access to the beach and sun loungers provided which was fantastic. And outdoor pool very good it ashame you hat...

Fantastic location, gorgeous private beach with the softest beach sand! Abundant chairs and umbrellas on the beach at no charge to hotel guests. Fantastic sunsets. Accommodation is simple and more than adequate with free breakfast and excellent WiFi service. Staff are phenomenol, super helpful and extremely friendly. Wonderful vacation spot.

Had a day to kill in Tampa after a cruise so we decided to stay near the beach instead of the airport. One more beach day before we go back to reality! What a great spot- great beach town feel and a private beach right across the street. Basic room, but super clean and really friendly staff. No view of...

We asked for an ADA room upon booking but when checking in the room (210) was on the second floor far from the elevator. When asking the desk clerk to move to an ADA room on the ground floor she said they had no ADA rooms! That's illegal. She must have been misinformed. Sad to say we can't handle the...
