Great place to stay! Convenient to everything

We travel to Tampa for Tampa Bay Buccaneers footballs games (Season Tix!) and we found this hotel a year ago and it is now our base of operations for every trip! 5 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from the stadium, a short distance to local beach bars, restaurants, & shopping and a great view of the bay! Rates are reasonable, service is great, and the amenities (pool, hotel store, etc.) are all perfect. We say there 8 - 10 times a year. Check it out. Its not a luxury hotel, but it has everything you need if you're coming to town for a few days and need a comfortable, clean, and convenient place to stay.

Very happy with these suites. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Staff, especially Ann Marie, were pleasant, courteous and always helpful. We want to thank you very much. Our room was clean and in a grest location. The Sailport offered us a very pleasant stay. We could not have asked for anything better. Will definitely return. Will reccomend to others going your way. Shuttle was prompt and the drivers were wonderful. Thanks again. Dan & Connie.

Bay Breeze Away the Stress!

Sailport was better than even anticipated. It was a great location. Close to Downtown Tampa and Clearwater. The activities available on the Sailport property were wonderful. The evening sunsets were a bonus!

Sailport sails in the right direction

This extremely friendly hotel offers suites facing Tampa bay with full kitchen, comfortable beds, gorgeous waterfront views from your room or off the large deck, and chairs to sit gazing at the active marine life while enjoying white sand in your toes with a thatched cover from the sun. There have a firepit on the beachfront, heated pool and an outdoor gym, and a dock to fish. There also is a large laundromat on site. But most of all you will be greeted with the friendliest and most helpful staff who are there to help make your stay as comfortable as possible.

MOST AMAZING HOTEL great for families!

After having a bad experience with the hotel I was originally supposed to stay in, I wasn't left with many options because it was the day of. I discovered this hotel online, I decided to give them a chance and I was more than satisfied. The staff was nothing short of wonderful, they treated myself & my four year old son like family. I had issues booking because of my credit card, it was my fault and not any issue with the hotel, but it took me an hour to resolve it, again this was 100% my fault . While waiting for a family member to pay for my hotel I was totally accommodated. The lady behind the desk even cooked the frozen dinner Mac and cheese I had for my son. She also set him up nicely at a table with juice and things to keep him occupied. After finally being able to check in we went to our room, I was so impressed! It was absoultely beautiful, like staying in our own apartment! We had a beautiful view of the water, a kitchen to store my sons favorite foods in and an incredibly comfortable bed! It was so clean, and modern! The pool was beautiful, the beach amazing & the fire pit was a unique added plus. My son couldn't thank me enough for getting him the "best hotel ever" this hotel & there staff really made a hard working single mom of a four year olds trip absolutely perfect! I have not one complaint, I felt safe and had no fear ! We even decided to walk to the lobby for a late night snack in there 24 hour store, and no fear ! I am so thankful for this hotel, it was more than I could possible imagine for a single mom to experience, especially on a budget! My son still is talking about his special time there, we started our own little vacation hotel fund because we cannot wait to go back!

Wonderful Experience

My trip was to the Laser Spine Institute, I stayed at Sailport because it was on the water front and the price was awesome. The room was very clean, the bed was really comfortable, the TV in both rooms was great for my husband and myself, we also brought groceries and cooked all of the utensils we needed were all in the cabinets. We also used the shuttle service and that was a plus. We plan to go back to Tampa for a mini vacation and we plan to stay at Sailport again and I will be requesting the same room

Beautiful

Stayed there one night. Fell in love. Will be staying there for my wedding next year! Also staying there in June for night just to get away. It was quiet and cozy and I loved that every room had a view of the breathtaking sunset on the bay!

Great Views, Total Comfort

This is the 2nd time we stayed at Sailport and they did not disappoint. Stayed from May 7th to 12th 2015 for our son's graduation. This time it was 4 of us and we got a 2 BR/2 Bath suite (this suite can accommodate 6 adults). All suites overlook the Bay but this corner one was particularly close to the water. We saw stingrays and dolphins and schools of large and small fish from our balcony. Lovely sunsets too. Sailport is close to all malls and stores and only a few minutes from the airport. We love to cook so the full kitchen was great. Very comfortable and clean. We plan to go back soon.

Great room for the money, gorgeous views

Gorgeous views of the bay from the balcony, complete with a kitchenette two full beds, and two TVs. It was perfect for what I needed it for, for the two nights that I was there while having surgery done at the Laser Spine Institute.

Awesome Place to Stay

Sailport Suites was an awesome vacation spot for us. Close to everything. We spent a day in St. Pete's, a day in Clearwater even drove down for a day trip to Naples. We were 10 minutes away from the Tampa airport and even though it was close to us we never really noticed the plans coming in at all. The hotel provided us a very clean place to stay. Staff was great. Although there is a beach area provided it is not water accessible but the pool is fabulous. Great view of the bay and all the activity on it. Sailport provided transportation to some of the local restaurants which was great so I didn't have to worry about having a drink or two and enjoying my evening out. The hotel is NOT in the downtown core of Tampa which was nice. So close to the causeway and highways but hidden away so you forget you are so close to the city. I loved our suite. The kitchen had everything we needed. It was a great trip.

Best Stay Ever

We stayed at the Sailport Waterfront Suites from May 4-8th. From check in to check out, AnneMarie and rest of the staff were friendly and accommodating. Our room was wonderful. It was like having your own 1 bedroom apartment. It was clean and inviting. I cant' say enough about the view of the bay. We watched the most beautiful sunsets from our balcony. The pool was meticulously take care of. Housekeeping made sure that we had everything that we needed. We want to thank the Sailport Waterfront Suites for one of the best vacations ever!

Loved It!!

We stayed here in April of this year. The condo was spacious and the view from the balcony was stunning! The private beach area and pool are all well maintained. We really enjoyed sitting around the fire at night! From the front desk staff to the maintenance crew, everyone was friendly and accommodating. Beautiful place to vacation at! We are looking forward to a return trip soon! 2 thumbs up!

The staff and service is second to none!”

I've stayed here twice in the last 3 months and the service has gotten better from the first trip. And that's saying a lot! The location is fantastic (waterfront with amazing sunsets). The views are outstanding! It seems to be a big spot for cruisers. The staff will go out of their way to be as courteous and helpful as possible. You will not find better!

Overall Great Stay

Our room wasn't ready at first, but the manager, Jerry was so very accommodating to us! Great property and view. Beds were comfy! Great location on the water. Close to downtown and other attractions. Would definitely come back!!

Great Views, Great Amenities

A very nice property on Rocky Point. All of the rooms have water views and the kitchen and living room make for a comfortable stay. There is parking for two cars for each unit, a heated pool, sandy volleyball and palapa area and a fishing pier. They also have a huge laundry room. We loved the place.

“Hidden gem ”

Stayed for a week and it was a great stay. Very clean, staff was friendly and attentive. Was there for business and liked the place so much that I'm taking the wife back for a weekend getaway. It's close to several malls, restaurants and outdoor activities. Each room has a waterfront view and a prefect view of the sunset over...

“Great View

Great staff; clean condos with full kitchens; balconies: free shuttle to and from airport and the International Mall (within three miles); outdoor pool; separate deck; sandy beach; volleyball court, dock for fishing; workout area; parking; beautiful sunsets across the Bay. Overall a great find...
