Historical Traveler Reviews Mainsail Tampa Extended Stay
My family and I planned a trip to Tampa and had reservations at the Hilton Hotel near the airport. When we got to that hotel, we were dissappointed with our room accommodations. We had 2 adults and 3 small children. We originally reserved a room with two double beds and when we arrived, they only had a king. My husband went on line and found this hotel. WOW!! It was like a home away from home. We couldn't believe the size of the suite for the money we paid. We would have paid more at the Hilton for a small room. Also, we saved money because of the full kitchens so I could cook for my family instead of restaurants. I recommend this hotel for families like ours. Very clean, staff was excellent, and the grounds were very beautiful. Next year, we have no doubt where we are going to stay.
Huge, clean rooms (apartments!) full kitchen - great deal!
I was quite pleased with this facility - it is more like condos than a hotel - just a few minutes from the airport and the location is convenient to major routes. There's not alot to do in the very immediate area, so a rental car is necessary (a whopping $10/day from Payless Rentals at the Tampa airport) - but you are close to the major highways to go in to Tampa, over to Orlando or to head South. A good touring base.
The rooms are apartments - full kitchen, living area, bedroom, bath and dining table. I had decided 1 week was too long to spend cooped up in a small hotel room with my husband - after awhile you just can't take another restaurant meal - I'm glad I booked here - the staff is very pleasant, the rooms are well-appointed & very clean - almost like small model apartments.
There are no elevators, so try not to book on the 3rd floor if you have alot of luggage! We were fine on the 2nd floor - I had been worried about hearing people above or below me, but it wasn't a problem. The restaurant/bar at the clubhouse is reasonably priced with a sandwich/light entree menu - the food was above average not great, but OK with very good service.
I highly recommend this location if travelling with children - shop around for prices - we paid under $100/night.
Great property for anyone especially FAMILIES. We just returned after staying in the 2 bedroom suite with 3 kids for a week. Couldn't ask for a better layout. Don't let the 2-star rating fool you. This is an excellent property and the staff was friendly and helpful. Good location also, next to airport and expressway(don't worry, you don't hear much noise) so very easy to navigate around Tampa and to beaches and still find your way back. Only downfall is that it doesn't have elevators and we were on the third floor so luggage was a pain. It is a very large property so if you want easy pool access, I would ask for it at time of reservation. I will definetly stay here again when on Florida's west coast
Enjoyed very much
My family stayed at Mainsail Feb. 21 - Feb. 24. The rooms are clean and neat.
The only drawback is that it is not a resort for vacationers. I found mostly business people and airline employees. I had booked my stay with Expedia and they messed up my reservation. I had booked a 2 bedroom suite and when I arrived was told Expedia had booked a 1 bedroom suite. They did accomodate us very well and found a 2 bedroom suite which was much more expensive but did not charge us any more $$. I would definately recommend Mainsail to others.
Great place for a great price
We went to Tampa for the Outback bowl and had a wonderful stay. There were six folks in my party so we got a one bedroom suite and a two bedroom suite. The rooms were spacious, clean and had everything we needed. We stayed for three days and had no problems whatsoever. Dishes and cooking utensils were provided and although we didn't do too much cooking, it came in handy for breakfast and late night snacks. The staff were courteous and professional. Mainsail is less like going to a hotel and more like going over to a friend's apartment and watching it while he's out of town. Great place to stay, I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Go Dawgs!
Stay here - you'll thank yourself
We picked this hotel for our four-day Tampa stay based on the reviews on tripadvisor, and we thank the previous reviewers. Before we came, we were concerned that Expedia had given this place 2 stars, and we were worried that the previous reviewers were describing something too good to be true. After staying, we will not trust Expedia star ratings, especially after driving by some of the places they had given 3 and 4 stars. And, we proudly tell let everyone that the previous reviewers who gave this place 5 stars on this site sure knew what they were talking about.
As for our experience, we booked a 2 BR suite through Expedia, but when we arrived they had us in a 1 BR suite. They showed me the reservation from Expedia that said 1 BR, even though my confirmation said 2 BR. Despite the fact that Expedia screwed up, Mainsail upgraded our reservation to a 2 BR without charge and without me having to argue with anyone, call Expedia, or anything else. This took all of about 3 minutes. I appreciate that the front desk caught this before I did, and the problem was fixed before we were even sent to our room. When we arrived, we found our room to be clean and spacious. Having the table set with plates, glasses, and silverware was a nice touch. Let me just say that having 2 bedrooms for 4 adults is sure nicer than having all 4 adults crammed into one hotel room - with this there is really no comparison, even though the prices were comparable. With that thought, we had wondered if Mainsail was too good to be true, but upon arriving, it was all we expected and more. We also feel very safe here - there is a fence around the entire complex, gates that require your room key to open on the road, a patrol apparently by a "real" sheriff, and emergency phones all over. But the area around the hotel looks to be decent, so the security is, in our opinion, above and beyond what is actually needed.
One bit of advice is that the although it's a "full kitchen" the cooking utensils are quite limited - we had to share the one pot that most resembled a frying pan between making eggs and potatoes for breakfast - so if you're planning to cook a gourmet mail in the in-unit kitchen, you'd better bring your own pots and pans.
To sum it all up, we recommend this place and we will stay here again should we ever travel to the Tampa area. Thank you tripadvisor.com and previous reviewers for helping us to make the right choice.
Great value - huge room(s)
We stayed a couple days ago on an Orbitzsaver rate - during a very quiet time at the hotel. This is a fully gated / secure property near the airport. Airport pickup was great with a very friendly driver who helped extensively with baggage. The rooms are huge for a 1BR - with a walk in closet that was big enough to have a crib in it. Upgraded kitchen, two seat balcony, dining room table, full cable. The onsite store sells wines / beer / food at very reasonable prices - Kendall Jackson for $15 for example - and the restaurant is very creative food combos. We requested a crib, which was a Graco portable, and they gave us a brand new infant blanket to use - nice touch!! Looked like a nice fitness center, but did not go in - laundry was up near the store. Very friendly staff and very helpful.
Minor gripes - we stayed in building 800, which is a five minute hike to the pool / rest / store. We had a 3rd floor unit, with no elevator, so be ready to hike up your luggage. The pool was not heated - we did not ask if it ever is...ask. No in room menus - so had to go get one for room service.
It looks like this may be only a partial hotel - possibly most are condos - but don't know for certain. We loved it.
Wonderful Place to Stay!
I stayed at a Mainsail in Tampa & I absolutely loved it! The suites are very spacious and have everything you need! I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Viva the Mainsail
The Mainsail is spacious,clean, and fun. For those of you visiting Tampa this is the place to go. The late night fun at the Pub at the Mainsail is awesome and the employees there are great. Say hello to Jimbo at the bar, and all the Southwest crews that are there nightly providing great times.
Better than we ever imagined!
We stay here with our sons sports team and WOW..it was really great!...Huge apartment-like suites...I loved the fact taht we had a living room and weren't all crammed in a hotel room....For the same price....Can't wait for another tournament.
