We ended up here last minute after we realized a nearby Hilton booked us into a smoking room. The CFB national championship was that day so everything else was booked. The room and breakfast were much better then expected after reading some of the reviews. Nice porch overlooking the waterway. There is lots to do in Tarpon Springs.

Booked a room overlooking pool. Was assigned to room on third floor in the middle of building. Road noise was horrible. Door would not close unless you really slammed it. Room was old and not kept up. Breakfast sucked and coffee was only lukewarm Don't stay here

We had a really nice room, including the bathroom. Yeah it's old, but it's been freshly painted clean. Nice shower! The carpet is fairly new. The view from the balcony was beautiful! We'd certainly stay here again.

spent two nights here wanting to explore the area. On reflection one would have been more than enough. Next to a very busy road, the hotel was soulless and a bit gloomy. Staff were friendly, it wasn't expensive, but had an air of desperation. Didn't see many residents at the time of our stay which didn't help the ambiance. The...

Very disappointed. The online pics are deceiving. Hotel is very dated and needs work. Bathrooms are old and in our case poorly designed. The toilet seat was velcrowed to stay up?? What were they thinking. Drains did not flow very well. The room just looks old - new bedding didn't help to hide the worn out interior. Grounds need serious...

Nice room, nice people, good central location, $70.00 per night. I recommend it. Nice ground, room opened up to a lake complete with alligator, who swam right up to us. Short drive to the sponge docks/Greek restaur ants and shops. Short trip to Clearwater, St. Petersburg and Tampa.

My girlfriends and I absolutely loved our stay. The rooms were clean and the staff was so friendly. They even made little towel animals for us to come home to each day. To top it off, it was just a quick drive to great beaches and attractions. We will definitely be coming back!
