We were staying at the Bay Harbor Hotel with my son's lacrosse team as they were playing in the Dick's Sporting Goods Tournament of Champions. The room was booked via a room block that was set up. Therefore, you would think the hotel would have been more prepared to accommodate their guests. Housekeeping never serviced the rooms until 3 in...

Never in my life have I felt compelled to write a review but absolutely the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Blatant disregard for guests. Would be better off sleeping in your car. They started drilling holes in the wall outside my room at 8am the morning after the national championship. Just a horrible all around experience. Go tigers

The bathroom was filthy with mold and mildew. The loud music at night kept us awake, the construction noises started too early in the morning, the restaurant service was slow and double charged my meal.

Let's go down the list for your consideration: filthy bathroom and overall room appearance. Hair on the floors, sink and towels. Light bulbs out. Mold or some other black substance in the shower. No hot water in the evening. Dirty mirrors. And the bed, with a noticeable valley in the center that made it a little more comfortable than the...

We had an amazing experience at the Bay Harbor Hotel. It was great having the pool, bar, and restaurant all on site, as well as a beautiful view of the water. The staff was friendly and extremely accommodating, specifically Wayne, who drove for the shuttle service. He helped us with restaurant recommendations, grocery runs, and rides to and from the...

Stayed 3 nights in late December, easy check -in, greatest views for the money. Hotel was under some construction but nothing that got in our way. Bays views are the best. Easy to get to everything. This is our 4th year there nothing but great. Microwave would be a nice addition

We stayed her once before. It has been clean, cheap, awesome views and great fun. Will stay here again for sure. The food was good. Bartender was fabulous even though some of the other guests were not so nice to her. Stay on the water view side. The buffet was expensive. It was very good but a little over priced.

Yes, it's under construction, no it's not the Ritz. However for the affordable nightly rate, this is a hidden gem. Staff was accommodating and rooms were clean. The shuttle drivers went out of their way to get us to Raymond James Stadium for a game.
