We had 2 nights to kill before our flight and I had found Sailport online and it seemed to fit the bill. The suite was fine - my mom took the bedroom, our daughter had a bunk in the hall and we had the really tough sleep sofa. We had eaten before we arrived so we had a light snack of cheese, crackers and wine down at the fire pit. There were plenty of adirondack chairs for all and we met quite a few nice people throughout the night. My only issue, and I do realize that this is standard in FL, is that when the kids and I went upstairs to get the cheese & crackers there was a HUGE (and I do mean HUGE) palmetto bug snuggled up in the silverware. My husband called the front desk and someone whisked away all the silverware and sprayed. yay! The pool was great, very relaxing right by the water. Aside from the lumpy sleep sofa my only other issue was how far away food selections were. My mom didn't want to go to the Rusty Pelican so we tried to find a grocery store~that was a bit difficult. Otherwise, it was a great price, good proximity to the airport...well worth the stay!

Thank you very much for such a positive review. I do apologize about the issue with the palmetto bug. We have already addressed this issue by having the pest control company come out and treat the room. We appreciate your business and look forward to accommodating you again.

My husband and I have stayed at Sailport Inn many times and plan on returning. we have also recommended it to others who have also enjoyed their stay. We love how close it is to the airport and Bright HouseField.
The Rusty Pelican down the street is a great place to dine. The atmosphere is great and love the rustic look. Highly recommend.

We were on 4th floor (#446) ; the WIFI there was barely usable. We found parking to be very good, the small sand area (pseudo beach) was excellent. The firepit, comfy chairs and beach volleyball were truly excellent! We stayed 3 nites and never had a maid service. This is unusual. From the parking lot, its 6 minutes to airport. Next door (you have to drive) is Whiskey Joes restaurant. We love the gumbo there! This hotel is clearly either a conversion from condo or perhaps some are still condo's. The bedroom was just big enough to contain the queen bed, the dresser is in closet; the bed takes up all the rooms floor space. There is ZERO storage in kitchen area. Balcony was real nice with westerly view over Tampa Bay. You look towards Clearwater or St. Petersburg. Furniture in room seemed on par with todays hotels, TV was flat and had plenty of decent channels (they don't block FOX like so many hotels do). The WIFI was a big disappointment. One day it rained and every guest must have been streaming netflix as the performance was slower than dialup. Big letdown! They tell you the WIFI password but when you open device, you see 4 different "Sailport" antennas yet only 1 asks for password and its the slowest.

This was our second trip to the Tampa location. The facility & staff there were wonderful both visits. Kayte, Arlene, Brittany, Evie & Jerry went out of their way to make sure we had everything we could want or need. The transportation service / personnel were great too. Harry & Mike were always there to make sure we got where we needed to be on time & safely. They all treated us like family and made us feel almost as comfortable as being at home. I would highly recommend that anyone visiting stay at the Sailport...I know it would be my first choice! :-)

Kayte at the front desk assisted us several times. Always was smiling and taking pride in her work.EEveryone was pleasant but Kayte was always asking if we were enjoying our stay and to let her know if she could do anything for us.

Room Tip: When booking let them know if you want morning or afternoon sun on your balcony.

From the beginning of our stay we were taken care of like royalty. The staff made sure we felt welcome and taken to my appointments on time. Never have we had such genuine concern for our care at a hotel. We will certainly send our friends and family your way.
