I miss this place already - TripAdvisor

This was our first time staying at Sailport, we were in town for the Florida Sportsman expo and wanted a nice room with a view to come back to after a long busy day. I saw some unsatisfactory reviews on here,but figured I would take a chance anyways, I contacted Sailport through their facebook page and requested to have an upper level room close to the tip of the island,they were super fast with their response and very friendly, even helping me out by finding me a better rate and offering me a promo code! You know the saying "you get what you pay for"...well sailport is extremely affordable in comparison to many other hotels around Tampa and it EXCEEDED my expectations! I can't say enough good things about our experience there. The staff is very friendly & personable, Jerry helped us with dinner reccomendations. They have a little store in behind the check-in area which is awesome, I was so happy not to have to drive to publix or walmart for some snacks & beer. I was smiling from ear to ear when we got inside our room. We had a 1 bedroom suite on the 4th floor (ROOM 421) The kitchen and living room area facing the large balcony with water views was just amazing, it was very clean, and equipped with a large fridge,stove,dishwasher,and beautiful large countertop and sink. Wow! Large flat screen TV in the living room and a smaller one in the bedroom. Most hotels just provide you with a room & bathroom, or a small plain sitting area. I could LIVE at Sailport, it was so nice and beautiful & relaxing. I loved it so much,and am already missing the view. We will without a doubt be back here if we are in Tampa again!

Perfect -

We had a great suite overlooking the bay. Accommodation was great and exactly what we were looking for after a long flight from the UK. Would definitely stay here again. Beautiful location and in walking distance to Whiskey Joes bar.

Wonderfull Property -

I stayed here one night a few weeks ago because it was close to the airport. I was concerned by the mixed reviews but I can honestly say I did not find one thing I could possibley think of to complain about. The pool was immaculate as were the other common areas. The "room" was more like an appartment including dishwasher and garbage disposal. The staff answered all questions professionally and helpfully. It was an area you could feel safe in with a variety of restaurants and activities within a few minutes walk or drive. Perhaps it depends on the room you are in but I would have no quams if I can get the same room next time!

Beautiful Views -

ool was clean and well stocked with towels. The grounds were lovely; I took my 3 year old grandson for a walk and he enjoyed swinging on the chair swing and looking for sharks from the pier.

The rooms were well decorated, it was large enough for our whole family to not be in the way of each other, and the staff was wonderful

Wonderful Stay

My Wife and I spent 2 weeks last February 2012..The resort and staff were very friendly and accomodating..We thoroughly enjoyed our visit..the resort was very clean..pool was great...overall a very relaxing vacation.

Great value for the dollar - TripAdvisor

Sailport resort is an ideal place to stay if you are looking for a quiet, nice, clean place in Tampa Bay. With one bedroom suites, all equiped with balconies, full kicthens, flat screen TVs and comfy beds this is a best buy for the money. In addition all rooms have a Bay View. Staff are friendly and responsive. Internet is free as is the parking. There is a nice pool area and a man-made beach area. The public areas are outfitted with comfortable chairs, volleyball court and firepit. You can watch the sunset on the Bay. This property is about 10 mins from the airport and 20 minutes from the cruise port. A fancy resturant (Rusty Pelican) and a casual one (Crabby Bill's) are within walking distance. Other resturrants are within an easy drive. The resort has a shuttle for guest use, with a small fee. If you are flying in, grab a cab and have them stop at a carryout for snacks, wine etc. There is no store nearby, although there is a small shop in the lobby for forgotten items.

Best weekend of my life! - TripAdvisor

My husband and I just had out wedding here last Friday evening. Aside from stressing out about weather or not is was going to rain, everything was perfect. We had 12 other people with us last weekend and they all expressed how nice it was. The rooms were clean, very spacious, and if we didn't have something we needed, they brought it to us. Christina and Mandy were my heroes of the weekend, From the set up to the tear down. I couldn't be happier that I choose Sailport Waterfront Suites to have our wedding. We had it out on the Patio, with the Bay in the background, with the sun setting. Then had dinner catered in on the same patio. All I can say is WOW! They even helped us with transportation the next day to get to the Port for our honeymoon. We can't wait to come back soon!

Perfect Location with Excellent Service

Recently I stayed at the Sailport Waterfront Suites for a total of 4 nights. It turned out to be a perfect location to get to all the events I had scheduled with either Free or low cost shuttles! (Like $10 or under.) The service during my stay was exceptional. The manager was so nice and helpful along with a friendly staff. I hope to return there one day just to relax and not head out to events! The rooms were clean and roomy. There was service of good food available for reasonable delivery for the times I didn't have time to prepare something right there in the kitchen. The sandy area had tables and shade so you could relax and bury your feet while reading or over looking the water. Absolutely a wonderful place for a couple, a family or even like me this time; business nearby. I would highly recommend this for a stay in the Tampa area!

Is Tampa airport better than Orlando airport? - Great bargain for our purposes. We wanted to visit Legoland in central Florida and considered flying into Orlando and diving 40 minutes west but flights were expensive and mostly booked (August, too!). Almost bagged the trip but then thought about flying into Tampa. Nice. Cheaper flights and nice hotel deals, even in advance of the Republican National  Convention scheduled for the following week. And Legoland was an hour ride east - worth the extra 20 minutes in the car! We'd do it all again the same way. Hotel was next to Old Tampa Bay with great sunsets from the outdoor heated pool. The interstate highways around Tampa are very confusing so a GPS would have been nice to have (we used MapQuest maps).

Great Location & View - Expedia

Overall, my room was very clean and so was the hotel, and I look forward to staying here again! Just a couple of things were missed during cleaning; very minor. Bed was very comfortable and room was quiet. I really liked the location and will book here again.

Perfect for a Family Vacation -

We were travelling with our 18 month old and this hotel was the perfect choice. There was plenty of room for her to play and my husband and I were very comfortable as well. Having the full kitchen was a lifesaver. Everything was up to date and clean. Convenient to all of Tampa interstates without feeling like you were in the middle of the city... Not to mention the amazing sunset. We plan on going back!

Everything Indeed -

The room was a real apartment with stanning view on the gulf, a nice balcony. It had everything, nice kitchen, big television, stereo...all you need. A television on wall in the bedroom too. Lots of space in the apartment. The staff very kind especially Jerry at front desk, a great helping person. Great the free shuttle service, they take you to restaurants, to Mall, to beach, to Airport (which is at only 8 minutes drive)

Weekend Getaway - TripAdvisor

Very nice two bedroom condo, with full kitchen, close to great restaurants and bars. Good location for downtown Tampa and Clearwater right off Hwy 60 (courtney-cambell causeway). Nice view from room of old Tampa Bay.

The desk attendant on the afternoon shift (3-11) was very friendly and helpful- the first person we saw when arriving and made us feel welcome.

Good for Families -

Nice hotel with a great pool. Can't swim in the bay, so you'll have to drive to the beach. However, that's true for all the hotels in the Tampa area. The kitchen area was very nice and great for families.
