Longmeadow, Massachusetts
Reviewed 3 days ago NEWvia mobile

Overall my stay was just fine. A small glitch the bathroom sink would back up. A gross nuisance but manageable. Notified housekeeper and the front desk; never resolved. A very positive note the front seat personnel were great! One employee; Mimi rocked. Personable, helpful, refreshing. Let's put it this way; the amenities the location.... attract; the people bring you back.

Has a nice bar/restaurant but was also walking distance from another bar/restaurant. Has volleyball courts and a nice outdoor pool. Would recommend to...

We stayed here in Feb with a large group of cruisers. The hotel obviously knew that a large number of people would be arriving at the Tampa airport but did not seem to care that their shuttle service is not capable of transporting a large number of people. We waited about 50 min & would have taken a taxi but...

There are good things, and some things that could be better, but it was exactly what I looking for. The location was easy to get to Clearwater on the Gulf Coast. It was also easy to get to Tampa.
