    In relation to most gay bathhouses, YBOR Resorts & Spa, is fairly typical. The amenities are acceptable, but not exceptional. I booked a 'room' from the locations website The website clearly explains this as a gay resort with rooms for rent. I made a three day, two night reservation while visiting from out of state. I was extremely disappointed that each staff member creates their own policies and procedures. You must surrender your key upon leaving the facility even though the room contains all your possessions. They require that you forfeit your driver's license or photo identification upon check-in to receive the keys. The rooms are non ADA compliant and are not exceptionally clean. No parking is available on site. Fire evacuation maps, simple check in and check out proceedures are not available for guest viewing. Simple conveniences such as washcloths, tissue, or blow-dryer are not provided. I would not recommend YBOR Resort and Spa as a hotel to anyone expecting typical transient guest accommodations.

    I have been to many bathhouses and this one is by far the nicest. I love the hot tub/pool, plenty of rooms and lockers, very pleasant staff, and a dark to that everyone needs to experience.

    DO NOT GO HERE!! I have been to this bath before and it wasn't a bad place. I decided to go again while in town last thurs 7/14/16. No mention from the front desk as to what I was about to enter into. I en tupstairs and the entire place smlled like rotten old vomit and mold. Beyond disgusting. I tried as hard as I could to make it past that as I just paid almost $20 as a non member since I don't live in the area anymore. I go around the first corner, all mattress out of the rooms and in the hallway, carpet ripped up, lights full on. I go around the other corner, same thing. Dry sauna out of order. NO ONE else in the place. After literally 5 minutes, I grab my stuff, go downstairs. Tell them I am leaving and ask for my $ back, Oh no, the manager has to do that. Ok, let me talk to him, oh he's not here. He will call you. That was almost a week ago and I'm still waiting. I can understand if you are under construction, at least tell me and let me decide if I want to risk throwing away $20. This place SUCKS !!!!!!

    This place should not be listed under hotels. It is not a resort and it is not a spa. Very misleading. I usually read reviews but never make any judgement unless I'very been there. We'll I did try this place & what a mistake it was. This place is filthy from all angles. Dingy, dirty & the entire place is a health code violation & a fire hazard. Non of the rooms have windows & the ones that appear to have windows are glass block windows. God forbid there is a fire there is no way to escape. I am surprise that the health department didn't close them yet. The sheets, pillows, towels are stained. Electrical outlets lose from walls & a fire hazard. Carpet is so sticky & dirty I would never walk around bare foot & not even in the room or shower. This place is a filthy bath house that is not even a bath house. Do yourselves a favor & skip this one. It was a total disaster & had the worst time ever. Customer service is none. The place just runs itself. Don't get me qrong, we have been to many bathhouse before in the states & overseas. Believe me this one is the worst.
