Verified Reviews of Vista Hotel on Lake Tarpon / Lake Tarpon Resort

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Helpful Staff, but Needs Updating"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This could be a true destination with just a few upgrades. The location was excellent and property beautiful, but needs new carpet, fridges that work, landscape improvements as well as updated cushions in lobby. All of the aforementioned would make this a wow property.

"Nice Facility at a Good Price"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
There was some confusion about the amenities, but it was handled amicably. Breakfast was a bit weak with only sweet rolls and coffee. Staff was friendly.
