I stayed at the Godfrey Hotel in Tampa, FL for 5 nights and was given great customer service from Kyle in the restaurant. He was friendly, professional and very attentive to the whole group I travelled with.

The room was nice, you could tell it was renovated. The rooms were clean and well maintained. Nice grounds and swimming pool. Also, very nice but pricey restaurant attached. However, the AC is very noisy, which mad sleeping difficult.

"Loudest hotel I have ever stayed in!"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5

Looking for a good night's sleep? Don't stay here! The restaurant/bar/cabanas are not even open yet (coming tbd time in June 2018) but the noise from the smaller pool, Whiskey Joe's and loud drunks (all probably 50 years of age on average) will keep you awake all night. Thin walls allow you to hear everything! Pool is extremely small and no rules are enforced--smoking was everywhere and there were cigars being smoked in the pool at 4 pm in the afternoon! (With kids there!) Hotel renovations very poorly done. Feels like an extremely cheap job; our room door had paint everywhere on the metal handle and more from a quick and dirty new paint job. All the furniture looks like it's been through a college dormitory. There are plenty of other waterfront hotels in Tampa Bay. Go to one of the others, no matter the deal here. The sunset is not worth everything else.

"Close to Airport, Overlooks Tampa Bay"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

We traveled to Florida to visit a relative, and on our return decided to stay at The Godfrey due to its location (near the airport, on the water). Our spacious room was pleasant, with a balcony overlooking Tampa Bay. Beautiful view! The grounds include two pools, plus several outdoor seating areas that are great for watching the plentiful birdlife -- brown pelicans, herons, egrets, other shorebirds -- and the bay is perfect for boating. We spent one afternoon kayaking (rentals available at WhatSUP Paddle Sports, just a short walk away). The next morning we ate at the on-site restaurant; food was average, though the staff was exemplary. We noticed on the afternoon-event calendar that 10% of drink sales were donated to LGBT causes for Pride Month. No matter your orientation, we always appreciate it when an establishment celebrates diversity. This is a hotel in transition, so we expected a few kinks. The floor in our room wasn't thoroughly cleaned, and the Keurig coffee maker didn't work. There was no A/C in the hallways, giving them a stale odor. Also, only one elevator was functional while we were there, creating a logjam on all floors. We assume these issues will soon be resolved, as I received a cordial note from the manager after I completed an exit survey. Should we visit Tampa again, we would definitely consider giving The Godfrey another try.
