A Fun Airport Hotel In Tampa, Florida


Map picture


In all my travels, The Best Western Bay Harbor Hotel Tampa located less than 15 minutes from Tampa International Airport (TPA) is by far one of my favorite airport area hotels.

Canon 179 With convenient airport shuttle, The Best Western is a refreshing break from ordinary airport hotels.





Canon 180 Although home to a “Crabby” guy name Bill this hotel offers the opportunity for FUN.






Canon 181 With three beach volleyball courts don't be afraid to jump in and show off your set and spiking skills.

On some nights games are played until 2am!






Canon 208 If you are not quite ready to show the world your volley ball talent, don't worry. You can demonstrate your Bean-Bag tossing or Beer curling skills at Crabby Bill's outside bar area.

Crabby Bill's is a “Fresh No Frills Seafood” restaurant and bar adjoining The Best Western.

Caribbean Mahi-Mahi with two sides is just $7.99 if you dine before 6pm. Complimented with a draft beer from America's Oldest Brewery, Yuengling for $2.50 along with the atmosphere it's a meal that's hard to beat for under $15.

Canon 175 Besides Volleyball, Darts, Pool Table, Bean-Bag Tossing, Beer Curling and on property Jet Ski Rental ($95 per hour, a bit expensive), The Best Western has a great old fashioned pool.





Canon 184 Almost 9 feet at the deep end although with no diving, one family finds it a great place for tossing reluctant swimmers.


Canon 177 If you plan on staying at The Best Western Bay Harbor Hotel Tampa request an even numbered room for great views of Tampa Bay.

Dissipating summer evening thunderstorms usually produce nice sunsets which can be enjoyed from your balcony, patio or the hotel’s bay front beach area.



Canon 186 Besides Crabby Bill, I found the hotel staff to be courteous and friendly.

I even got to use the employee lounge microwave to heat up a plate of Florida Famous, Publix Fried Chicken for lunch.



Free computers and wireless internet along with the possibility of a late check out makes The Best Western Bay Harbor Hotel Tampa a bargain at around $75 per night.
