Amazing! - TripAdvisor

For once in my life, I am speechless...This was a wonderful stay. The rooms clean, roomy and comfortable. I mean very clean. The range of fun and sun was the best ever. Friendly folks and employees, Would and will come back! Great price and family friendly. Thanks Sailport, GREAT Trip for us. All rooms face the bay, with balconies. Yes I saw a dolphin.

Great Hotel - Expedia

The rooms were huge and the grounds were above and beyond our expectations. I have stayed in Tampa many times and this was the best yet. We will be back.

Great Adventure - Expedia

It was a spur of the moment get a-way. Had a great time. You were able to watch the sunset on your balcony. Play volleyball/fish on the beach shore or relax by the pool! Great experience. Recommend highly

Home away from Home - Travelocity

We enjoyed our stay here so much that we booked an extra couple of days. Great location, friendly staff and very affordable. Room was clean, we were surprised to find an oven and dishwasher. Will be coming back

Excellent Hotel off Main Road -TripAdviser

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel entrance is a little hard to find, but once you find the little sign its worth it. Our room was very clean and comfortable. Once you figure out which roads take you were you can navigate easily. The only down side is you have to get on interstates to go anywhere. At least thats how our GPS took us to restaurants and other area attractions. The fishing pier is nice as well as the pool. The private balconies are great for watching the sunsets over the bay. We will stay there again when we go back to Tampa.

Wonderful Place - TripAdvisor

Don't know if it's common, but the hotel is cleverly designed so that balconies provide a wonderful view of the bay as well as complete privacy from adjacent rooms. The suites were spacious and clean, the price was very reasonable (even though we were there during spring break.) Only minor drawback for us was the fact that there was no access to the water from the hotel's beach. Plenty of real beaches nearby though.

Beautiful Sunset - TripAdvisor

My stay in March was my 1st time there. Room 324 was cozy & yet very clean. But absolutely nothing tops off the day like this beautiful sunset! I cannot wait til I return on July 25th, where this time I'm bringing along my family so that they can enjoy & appreciate everything that Sailport has to offer. Thank you to all the staff for my wonderful memories ?

Great Stay - Great Value - TripAdvisor

We booked this with a package to Busch Gardens. We had a 2 BR apartment with full kitchen and dining room. Tons of room and we had a great balcony to watch sunsets from overlooking the bay and the pool. The price of the stay bundled with the Busch Gardens tickets was a great deal. Really good location allowing us to day trip over to Clearwater as well. We'd definitely go back.

Panoramic bay view from a private balcony

We spent one week at Sailport from May 31th thru June 6th, 2012 to celebrate our 22nd Anniversary. When we reserved this hotel, we did not expect much because the price we paid was very decent (with Hotel's promotion) but we were so lucky to stay at room 329 which has a panoramic bay view. A BIG Thanks to Mr. David Frank who booked this room for us. We enjoyed every minute of it. At Sailport, every room looks out water view, more or less. In room 329, the sandy beach and wide open bay view can be seen from the living room. Night time illumination was beautiful, especially when our week was during the full moon. Restaurants are a short distance away with Rusty Pelican is just a few minute walk outside the complex. We dinned out at Rusty Pelican once. Food at Rusty Pelican was delicious and the area along the water was beautiful (but not better than the view we had from our balcony, though). There is also a mobile BBQ vendor on site by the pool and wood deck which opened on weekend from Thursday thru Sunday. The BBQ was delicious! During our stay, I cooked meals almost every day. Normally, when we are on vacation, we eat out most of the times. But with the view we had at Sailport and a fully equipped kitchen, why I had to pay extra money to have the same view (or less) at a high-end restaurant? My hubby was surprised that I cooked almost every day for a week because he knows cooking is not my style, at home or on vacation. This time, with the magnificent view from this room, I was in the mood for cooking and enjoyed dinning from our own private, waterfront balcony Overall, our stay was very pleasant. At this condotel, each unit is individually owned, so there were variations in the updates from previous years. However, they are in the process of renovation entire hotel with new interior design and furniture upgrades in every room. We were told this unit 329 will get a full upgrade sometime in July 2012. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone for the price, the view, the location and services.This is a quiet, peaceful place to stay away from the crowds but only few miles from center of the town. Oh, last but not least, we had cleaning service every day in our room without paying extra $100+ per week as we normally paid when you rent a condo by owner. This is a big plus.


We booked through Expedia. Very pleased with the accomodations. The room was clean, bright and well maintained. The property was exceptionally nice and the staff helpful. We faced the bay, it was quiet, peaceful and the sunset was fabulous.

Very Happy with This Booking -


Short Spring Family Getaway - Expedia

The rooms all have a balcony that faces Tampa Bay and provides a beautiful view of the sunset every evening. Convenient to shopping and the expressway (Bush Gardens was 20 minutes) and quiet. A real bargain for the price

Impressed with Sailport - Expedia

Sailport Resort was exactly what my friends and I were looking for. Our room had a beautiful view and we enjoyed the ammenities. We especially appreciated the reasonable price. The location was convenient and we will definitely stay again when vacationing in Tampa.

Tampa Anniversary Trip - TripAdvisor

We were in Tampa Bay celebrating our 35th anniversary, we stayed at the Sailport Waterfront and were pleasantly surprised since there were a few negative reviews. Our Condo was awesome, very bright and clean and all condos are ocean view and a nice balcony to sit and have your morning coffee! So relaxing, the pool overlooked the ocean too. You could walk to beaches that were up and down the highway. The property has a shuttle within a 4 mile radius, but didnt use that since we had our own car. I would suggest having a car, since St Petersburg beaches were about 12 miles away. Very nice area, food was great everywhere we ate. I would definately go back.

Great Stay - Expedia

We had a 2 bedroom suite and it was great. We only stayed 1 night, but wished we could have stayed longer. Had a fabulous view from our balcony of the Bay. We are used to staying in Timeshare units so having a seperate kitchen and livingroom is great.

The staff was extremely helpful with check-in and all of our questions.

Sailport April Trip 2012 - TripAdvisor

This property has continued to get better with each trip I have made to this location : This was a business and Friends trip. My room had newer appliances and utensils. Looked as if was a fresh remodel. The bathroom was in excellent condition. There were 2 flatscreen TV's and a great desk work area. Small bedroom , but comfortable queen bed also the Wifi was free. The view was out over the pool area and looked into the bay. A nice patio area with charcoal grills located at the south end. The deck was great and made for enjoyable late afternoon relaxing. The hallway carpets were fresh and clean. Hotel rates have been very consistent and it is a great price for the easy access to Clearwater and downtown Tampa. Close drive to attend a Rays game as well. Also Chart House is new and close . The Hotel shuttle will take you to the nearby shopping and restaurants. This hotel was cleaner and better priced than most of the local Marriotts and Sheratons I have stayed in Florida. We did have a mix up in the pricing , but the hotels staff corrected this without issue. They were very pleasant and met my expectations during check in and when correcting the rate adjustment.

Attended a Wedding - TripAdvisor

The staff and accommadations are excellent. They were so pleasant to deal with, and made our stay so pleasant. We will be returning again and again. This is deinitely the place to "get away for several days" without breaking the pocketbook. The 2 bedroom suite we were in had a magnificent view. They had everything you would need - just bring your food. The kitchen was so nice with beautiful appliances and even granite countertops. There were 3 TV's, a DVD player, radio and comfortable beds. The walk-in shower was especially nice and the bathrooms were good sized. We are looking forward to our next trip there.

Great Spot - TripAdvisor

I just finished a nine day stay here. It was everything I was expecting and more with all the new improvements they have done since last year. There isn't any bad view from your balcony. Service is always with a smile. Many places to dine in a less than a 5 mile radius. If I could I would love to own one these newly remodeled rooms. Thanks and we will see you again .

Wonderful time.

We just left your facility yesterday after being there for 5 days. It may have just been the most enjoyable vacation of our 40 yrs of marriage. No problems, in fact, the staff was more than willing to go above and beyond the call of duty. Always asking if we had enough towels' coffee, etc. We went to get a different shower head and the maintanence man beat us back to our room. He changed the shower head and also thought we needed a new tub spout which we didn't even notice anything wrong with it. I was skeptical when I read some of the reviews on here, but I think now that some people just like to complain even when there's nothing to complain about. We WILL return to Tampa Bay and The Sailport Waterfront Resort. Without a doubt, the most relaxing, beautiful scenery around.szuoo

Incredible Sunsets -

It was very relaxing and the sunsets were as good as it gets !! Local eateries were more than expected...Good food, good price !!


I truly and highly recommend this hotel and its staff. The location, the ambiance, the environment, the atmosphere, the view, the staff was perfect!!!

Great Spot on The Water - TripAdvisor

My husband and I were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the sailport. I booked online expecting to get a very basic room for the night. How wonderful to get a water view and a balcony for the low price we paid! I didnt give it five stars because the halls are a bit noisy. For dinner, we walked right over to the Rusty Pelican and had a phenomenal meal. We didn't expect to enjoy Tampa, so had made it a quick one night sleepover. We liked the Sailport so much, we are here for another day! If you are traveling to Tampa, I do suggest treating yourself with a lovely location.

A great place to getaway! - TripAdvisor

We love staying here. The rooms are great (we especially like the kitchen - I love to cook and my fiancee loves for me to cook for her). The staff is great, the atmosphere is incredible, and the prices cannot be beat. We try to stay here at least once a month and have stayed in multiple different rooms (on all floors and in all different areas) and have not been disappointed yet. We've bragged about it so much that we are having a family get together there next month. We would enthusiastically recommend Sailport to anyone.

Nice relaxing place! - Travelocity

It was a very clean room.... It was nice to have a laundry room there also. Beautiful looking out over the bay very peaceful at night. Cleaning service was wonderful. I have no cons about the place.. I'll be staying there again in Aug.

Amazing Place to Stay - TripAdvisor

I had a great stay at sailport waterfront suites. I was not expecting much besides a general room, instead i got a full kitchen and a great work space. Most of all the view was great and I recieved a great relaxation massage on my balcony "Thanks Grace" That was great feature to walk into as well. Only disappointments I had was there was no beach access.. and not to much to do on property. I would have been happy with a simple kayak or row boat to cast a couple.. here nor there.. my stay and experience at sailport was great! Highly recommended!!!

Excelletnt - TripAdvisor

We spent 7 nights here and loved it! The room, view, service and staff were excellent. We used the hotel shuttle each day and they were great. We flew into St. Petersburg/Clearwater airport and it cost $35.00 for a taxi to the hotel, about a 25 minute ride. If you fly into the Tampa airport the hotel shuttle will pick you up. We used public transport(Hart bus) to get around outside the 4 miles that the hotel shuttle services. You can get to restaurants and 2 malls using the hotel shuttle. You would need to rent a car to get to Clearwater beaches.

Tampa Welcome

Very nice experience! Roomy space and balcony was a nice touch. The grounds were beautiful we wished it would not have been so rainy during our stay.
