"Great staff makes up for average environment"
Older facility located on busy US 19. Room was comfortable, and fairly quiet, considering proximity to traffic. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Housekeeping responded to every request as well as adding personal touch to service. Maintenance responded immediately to replace hair dryer and TV remote. It would have been helpful to receive the instructions for Wi-Fi when checking in. Had to stop by desk later to find out how to sign on. (Password required.) The hotel does not have a view of Lake Tarpon, only the boat basin which leads to the lake. The pool was cleaned each morning, but there is a terrible problem with leaves and debris getting in the water, making it less than desirable to swim. The hotel has a terrible "Continental breakfast". Cereal, oatmeal, bagels, and waffle-maker. Fruit was dried out. Ended up eating out each morning. Overall, the hotel is adequate for the price and area. Staff makes up for dated environment. They were exceptional.

"It could be soo much nicer"
The room had a great view. the pool was nice and the hot tub too. However the room needed a good cleaning and the bed was very hard and had body impressions. We abandoned the breakfast the first day since the top item was a waffle. The waffle irons were not working and the next choice was a muffin. We loved the location for a quick drive to several great spots but really could have done without the view and gotten a cleaner and newer hotel for a few bucks more.

Good location. The continental breakfast was disappointing. If you didn't arrive early there wasn't much left and the trash was overflowing...this only happened one morning and we did not try for breakfast the next day.

"Lake Tarpon Stay"
I thought the hotel was located on a lake. It actually looked more like a small canal. The room was nice, but the bathroom had black, moldy caulk around the tub. Hotels really need to update this detail.

"Good location"
No microwave in room. They had no suger substitute on breakfast bar and ran out of coffee within 45 minutes! The hotel needs some work. We had a room that was pet friendly but the carpets were not. My socks had to be destroyed because of the sticky carpet . Beautiful place with a little T.L.C.

Friendly, courteous staff, eager to ensure our comfort. We would suggest that the hotel inform or make clear that the restaurant is no longer operational; and that though the hotel is near Lake Tarpon, guests do not have access to the lake shore at all---this is 15-20 minutes north of the property.

"Nice stop-over"
En route to southern Florida we stopped for 2 nights. Disappointed as we walked to room because it was on the side of the big, noisy R. 19 until we opened the door and there was this lovely little balcony overlooking the canal. Spacious, clean room. Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. We grade the neighborhood really good for the canal side, the strip mall highway wasn't very inviting but we just drove away during the day. Only complaint and we have this about almost all hotels, the breakfast had nothing but sweets and carbs. Diabetics could use at least one item that is non-carb...like eggs.

"Tarpon Springs vacation"
The Vista Hotel has a nice setting with a balcony overlooking a lake. The room was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. However, our TV was not working - faulty outlet - fixed quickly. Our refrigerator did not work and the food we put in it was not fresh the next morning. The mamager said there was nothing she could do - sorry. It was pet friendly and a 4 mile easy trip to Tarpon Springs. A nice hotel could have been so much better.

"Horrible Room"
Worst room we ever stayed in. The room obviously hadn't been cleaned, there was toilet paper in the toilet and the desk had grease and glass rings on it. The leather desk chair was completely torn up and should have been thrown out. The occasional chair cushion was filthy and there were no springs left in it.

"Economy - Not on a grand scale"
Evidently the hotel had recently changed hands and nobody told Expedia about it. We were looking for the name of the hotel that we had booked and it was now something else entirely. Their sign had changed and it was very confusing to find. While we don't book a hotel for its breakfast, this one was sub-par. They had a toaster but no bread to make toast (they said they never have bread, the toast is for long-term guests who bring their own) (???) and hot cereal packets with hot water but no milk for the cereal.

"Nope - Nadda - Never Again"
Made a late 11pm reservation through Hotels.com ap. Arrived at hotel at midnight. Hotels.com reservation had not been faxed (who uses faxes anymore) to the hotel so they had no reservation for us when I arrived. Clerk gave us a room on first floor. Hotel is old with outside room access. All the fixtures are old. Carpeting was worn, two dead flies in one of the beds, ants crawling in the bathroom. Toilet seat would not stay up. Turned the heat on and a god awful stench came out of it. Had to sleep in the cold. Bed was way to soft and still have a sore back 3 days later. I do not recommend this hotel.

"Great hotel for the money, great location!"
We chose this hotel so that we could stay in the Tarpon Springs area. It was very affordable, clean and spacious. Yes, the decor and particularly the bedding is outdated and needs to be brought up to modern times but the room is spacious and has a huge balcony, the largest I've seen. All of the rooms have a water view which is also a nice perk. The hotel is only about 10 minutes away from the sponge docks where you can go have lunch and do a little shopping. There aren't many hotels in Tarpon Springs but I definitely recommend this one if you're looking to stay in that area.

"You get what you pay for"
We needed a room near Tarpon Springs for a night and this was the closest location with an available room. Calling it a "resort" is a stretch. What you get is a so-so motel sans sketchy characters (at least when we stayed there) and a nicer lobby. First room had awful odor, second room that we received was ok. Low cost, needs renovation, and minimal service, but ok if it is your only option. Great location on 19 near Tarpon and Innsbruck Golf Resort.

"just ok"
stayed only one night. It rained most of the time so cannot comment on pool/whirlpool. The room seemed clean on entry but I dropped something and it fell under the bed, when I bent down to retrieve it, there were several items that had been dropped by others. Cleaning is superficial. The front desk clerk was friendly upon arrival. I could have gotten a nicer room for less money if I would have done more research.

The worst part of our stay was the fitted sheet it did not fit the mattress - it came off every night! When we got to the room - we only had two towels. The microwave was nasty with melted cheese all in it. The shower head was bad - only half the water came through it & the other half through the faucet. The commode ran constantly if you did not play with the handle to get it to stop. Just need to correct what was wrong & throw away that sheet! I left a note on the bed when we left to throw it away. I wonder if it got done?? Loved the location & the surroundings.

They did not have enough food to serve the residents. I saw people asking employees to put out more food and they were told that no more food could be put out.

The hotel is ok for the price. Elizabeth the hotel clerk is excellent. The hotel is a little outdated the beds should be change to queen size double bed is extremely small.

The reviews gave this motel a good - it was anything but! Motel could be so much more - it needs a major, major update. The room was relatively clean, but had a musty odor. Carpet was ancient, walls were screaming for new paint, furniture was older than me (and I'm a senior) half the wall outlets didn't work, & new bed & bedding is a must! Here is a an important issue *** if you are counting on wi fi do not stay there. When I called the front desk, they gave me some bogus password. We had absolutely no wi fi ... no cell phone service, e-mail. In a word The Tarpon Resort is a dump!!" There are other motels & bed & breakfasts un the area. Choose one of those!

"nice hotel on a busy road"
The staff was great and the room was clean and comfortable. Nice pool and spa. Impressive lobby with that old school hotel style. The only thing i didn't like about this place is it's location on a big busy road. Yes it's in palm harbor but not in the old Town at all. Probably when this hotel was built the highway here was not as busy as it is now. This is an 8 lane suburban highway. The price was right though.
