I checked in to this spa for a brief 8 hour stay. I was told there were no single rooms only double ones, so I took this without hesitation. The first room I was given had no light, only a broken fixture. I was then given a second room which also had a broken light and was completely dark. The... More

The last couple times I have stayed here I have seen work being done, and the general atmosphere of the place is improving. Very glad to see this. Come a long way! The hot tub is great, and the Hotel rooms are looking a lot better!

The owners should be ashamed they call it resort & spa. It is neither & miss represented. You enter from a dingy back Alley. The entrance is a filthy hallway & you feel like entering a filthy establishment. You register at the sex shop to check in after a long wait then u go through another dingy hallway to go... More

YRS is a great place to stay if you want to have fun in the heart of Ybor. Or just want a casual spot to chill with other like minded people. By far the best of the three options Tampa in the same catagory.

Although checking in took a little longer than i would like, this place is nice so much fun. My partner and I stayed for a weekend recently. We simply loved the place. The staff was great and the place was clean. I recommend this place to everyone.

Normally I would not write a review on a property that I have not visited, but the ordeal that my partner and I experienced regarding YRAS needs to be shared. My partner reserved us a room as a birthday present to me. He paid the deposit using his card. Within a couple of days, he paid the balance so that... More

I booked a reservation in April for a June visit. At the time of my booking, they took a 50% room deposit.

I called to cancel my reservation THREE WEEKS before... More
