The price was right & the location was perfect. Kayla was very friendly and helpful. We were lucky to get upgraded to a suite--furniture was old & antique looking but really enjoyed the room. It had a living room, 2 bathrooms, and a small bar area with mini fridge. The lobby is charming and outside is beautiful. We missed breakfast...

We spent 4 nights here and were thrilled with the location. It is walking distance to many great restaurants, shops, museums, movies etc.. Near a number of parks including Demen Landing waterfront park. A great place to check out downtown! Kayla, one of the front desk staff was very personable and helpful with everything from restaurant recommendations to traffic heading...

The hotel was small and cozy, the staff was excellent. We stayed only for a few days and found it close to everything we needed to do. A short walk to the locale market for anything you may need. Next to a park.

We needed a place to stay for the night after attending a wedding. The Cordova Inn was perfect for that. The room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. The continental breakfast was included and very good.

We stayed one night. Checked in late. Friendly staff. Small but clean room with no fridge. The bathroom was very small not enough space. Air exhaust vent was very very laud. Rust on the floor.

I had to stay here because of a lack of rooms due to the NCAA tournament in Tampa. It's a quaint old hotel with a very neat lobby, and is much like a bed and breakfast. It's well situated in the downtown area, where you can walk to most everything. I liked the place, but felt a little unsure and...

A little hotel very well situated to go walking every where. The staff was really nice. The breakfast was ok with bread, coffee, fruit and cereals. The parking is 10$ a day. The room was small but confortable.

My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary. The location was great, close to everything. The staff was very pleasant! The rooms were fairly clean, but dated. Our main complaint was the bathroom. It's was very small and uncomfortable and the shower curtain was just a piece of vinyl that allowed water to spray everywhere. I don't think...

I like this place. It is basic, but has some old time charm. Easy walking to the Marina and many great restaurants and bars. Little parking available and cost is $10 per day but there is a parking garage around the block for the same rate. Staff were very friendly and the rooms were clean.

The Cordova Inn is a quaint little, old hotel. The room is pretty basic, but comfortable and was clean. There was a continental breakfast served of light bites, yogurt, muffins, cereals, boiled eggs, juice and coffee. The staff were pleasant enough, though no one was around when we had to turn in our key at the end of the stay....
