Stayed here over Christmas 2016. Very clean hotel with friendly staff. Nice tiki bar and a small Sandy beach on Tampa bay. Because the prevalent winds blow all kinds of trash off the bay in this direction, there is a slight odor. However, the hotel stall has a daily routine to keep the beach Sandy white.

We have stayed here for each of the past 4 years on our annual Spring Training trip. Love the complex. The Tiki bar is fantastic. The food isn't too bad, you need to try the breakfast. Close to the highway. I Love it. Can't wait to do it again this spring. Rick Pittsburgh PA

Group of 31 spent a few days and everyone loved it. Really fantastic time at the pool with all our friends. This place has 2 pools and a beach. Great time watching all the birds and dolphins in the water. Rooms could use updating with a micro wave, but everything was clean and worked.

I have learned to pretty well trust the reviews on trip advisor. However I was concerned because of the almost to good to be true price we found. I had even called the hotel...

Went for a New Years Party in the ballroom. The party was very nice and the food was really good. For the most part service was good during the party. One female bartender was EXTREMELY rude and walked away from a line of waiting people because someone made her mad. She just closed the bar (only one open in the...

This is an amazing resort. Not to pretentious. Very friendly staff. Especially Daja the front desk clerk. The bedding was a little dated, but you cannot beat it for the price. We will be back. Thanks Marina Cove...

We booked Magnuson Hotel for a quick overnight Anniversary trip. When we arrived we were greeted with a very friendly staff. They quickly checked us in and we were given directions to our room.
