Good hotel quality and service, but I would recommend it for a short stay. Pleasant temperatures during the day, but quite cool during the night , so the water temperature in the swimming pool is low in the morning (in February). In the evening, you have to watch mosquitos, because they bite nastily.

Ideal place to stay if all you have time for is a light evening meal, a bed and then breakfast before driving back to Orlando. Fish cakes and a Caesar's salad at 1.30am UK time was enough; Eggs Benedict were great in the morning, [a late lunch for me]. One complaint; pillows far too hard.

Older hotel in a resort community. The room was clean, updated, had a fridge and a balcony with a water view. There are multiple pools and hot tubs in the community and you have access to them all. We drove to the better pool. The maintenance guy by our room told us where to go and park. It was a...

The room was okay. The location, across the street from Tampa Bay, had the most beautiful sunsets. Able to walk to restaurants. Really a perfect area. Four issues - first, my room was not ready when I got there and I got there way past check-in; second, it was virtually impossible to use my cellphone unless I sat outside my...

We stayed here while visiting family nearby -- the three bedroom villa was perfect for 2 adults and 3 teens.

We reserved the water view room at the Inn largely due to a Groupon discount. Pictures used in the advertisement of the Inn at Little Harbor were misleading, from another property. By the time we figured this out, it was too late to make changes. Room and hallways are tiled (stone), no carpeting. Room doors are under strong tension and...

The hotel is hard to find, and then you find out there are two different ones under the same name.

The rooms are large, modern, well...

I was initially disappointed because the "all rooms have bay or harbor view" just is not so; ours was a view of the tennis courts. Rooms on the other side of the building on the 1st floor had a view of the wall around the pool. On the other hand, so many aspects of the facility were terrific I forgot...
