Where to Stay in Tampa
There are so many wonderful hotels in Tampa, Florida on the beach and a short drive from the shore. From family-size suites to luxury resorts and affordable express inns, you can choose the right accommodation for your travel style. Consider these guest favorites as you plan your getaway:
- Harborside Suites at Little Harbor: Get your fresh start among old-Tampa vibes. This lovely hotel looks out over the peaceful harbor, where you’ll see both boats and palm trees lined up along the docks. Each guest room is decorated in soft tones, and natural light filters in from each private balcony or patio. From here, you can walk to the E.G. Simmons Regional Park.
- Sailport Waterfront Suites: On the southwest side of Tampa, in secluded Rocky Point, this hotel is truly a great escape within easy reach of the Upper Tampa Bay Trail. Explore the great outdoors and come back to your suite to prepare a fresh Floridian meal in your fully equipped kitchen, or lounge by the outdoor pool.
- Country Inn & Suites: You don’t need to stay right on the waterfront to enjoy this beachside city. This affordable inn offers complimentary hot breakfast, pool and fitness center access, and 24-hour business center services. You’re just a few miles from Eureka Springs Regional Park, so enjoy some hiking before a day at the beach.
- Ramada Temple: Your body is a temple, and this hotel understands how important simplicity, comfort, and peace and quiet are to maintaining your inner sanctum. Pillowtop beds and an outdoor pool will help you find your Zen, as will long walks at Lettuce Lake Park.
Spend Your Days in the Bay
Believe it or not, dear traveler, there is more to do in Tampa than soak up the sun and lounge on the sand, but more on those later. In your pursuit of clearing your mind of the old and enriching your experiences with something new, discover the nuances of Tampa’s multicultural heritage at Wat Mongkolrata, a Buddhist temple and marketplace where Thai traditions stay alive through meditation and festivals.
In the same city, where the Thai Songkarn Festival fills the streets with flowers and fragrant water, the historic neighborhood of Ybor City is bright with Latin history, cuisine, and plenty of stories. This is the place to be when you crave the perfect pairing of fine dining and dancing. Stay in one of our Tampa beach hotels and venture just 7 miles from the coast to Historic Ybor City. This district is a haven for art lovers, students, and the LGBTQ community, and the revelry is fueled by Cuban sandwiches and savory seafood.
Now, about that coastline…when you stay in one of our Tampa beachfront hotels, you’ll be within steps of warm Atlantic waters and exquisite amenities. Plus, your moment of rejuvenation can be every moment. On the west side of the city, Cypress Point Park is a lovely beach oasis near downtown, where city meets the sea. Across the bay—we know the horizon is pulling you like the tide—Clearwater Beach is an expansive stretch of sand with crystal water and lots of low-key activities, like volleyball and swimming.
Already feeling revived? With Travelocity’s price-matching promise, planning a great getaway is easy and even relaxing, because you’ll find the best travel deals all in one place, or we’ll refund the difference. Book one of our Tampa hotels on the beach today and enjoy a fresh start.

Tampa is more than golden beaches and Magic Mike wannabes. In fact, this is a town that takes everything you think about Florida and flips it on its head.
Sure, the weather is always balmy, but did you know ice hockey is a huge sport here? Yes, yogis are commonplace, but did you know that hip-hop yoga is a huge draw? That’s just scratching the surface of surprising things to do in this town. Nab yourself last-minute hotels in Tampa and prepare to let go of all your preconceived notions.
Goals and Sweaters: There’s certainly nothing wrong with taking your family to the beach during your trip, but we know you’re the type of parent to embrace the unexpected. Which leads us to ice hockey. Yes, ice hockey in Florida! The Tampa Bay Lightning are a Stanley Cup-winning team, and always put on heart-pumping games. You might confuse some people as you walk around town in a warm sweater, but you’ll need it near the ice.
Yoga With a Beat: Beach towns and yogis go hand in hand, and Tampa is no exception. In fact, you might look out of place if you’re roaming around in normal clothes instead of skin-tight stretch pants. However, this town is big enough to offer yoga with a twist—or rather, a beat. CAMP is a popular fitness studio that offers Hip Hop Flow. Sweat out bad vibes in the heated room (95-98 degrees) while rap blares on the speakers.
Spa Day—Kinda: Relaxation is the name of the game, but when it comes to loofas and sponges, this town has a surprise. Make your way to Spongeorama Sponge Factory, which has the largest collection of natural sea sponges. Take the free tour, which includes a movie and museum exhibits. Then spend some time in the gift shop where you’ll find souvenirs straight from the area’s waters.
Ahoy Matey: Boating in Florida is nothing new, but Tampa knows how to do it better. Instead of your usual vessel, board a pirate ship. Called—what else—The Pirate Ship, this popular vessel launches from John’s Pass and is manned by costumed actors. You won’t get a chance to shoot off a cannon (bummer, we know), but you can participate in water gun battles on board. With your new sailor skills, book a Tampa hotel on the beach so you’re never far from the waves.
We have a feeling you’re going to have a Florida trip unlike anyone else. Which means you shouldn’t spend money like normal people, either. Use our Hotwire Hot Rates so you can get a 4-star hotel for a 2-star price. From hotels near downtown Tampa to hotels near Tampa Port, we have you covered.

It seemed like a sweet dream. We stood close to each other with priests (and we are almost the same height), she pressed her treasure, and my tomboy. Stood up like a stake. Somewhere in the subconscious it is still sitting. I wanted to put a dick in this huge ass, on which I could feel a pimple if she was there.
