4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

I stayed here for 8 days recently. Retro 60's-70's roadside-style motel property conveniently located for Dunedin, Clearwater/Countryside, Palm Harbor and Safety Harbor. Large, clean and comfortable room full of amenities. Cable, Wi Fi, fridge, coffee-maker, iron, hair dryer, etc., etc. Good heat/air. Accommodating staff. Fantastic room rates, given the competition in the area. I'd stay here again, without a second... More

Used for an early AM flight, 30 min or less to TPA and far better than anything comparably priced close to the airport. No ick factor, rooms are large and clean. Safe commercial area, but not a tourist part of town.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review of our hotel. I'm glad that you found the stay convenient. It's about 20 to 30 min drive to the airport depending on the traffic flow and time of day in the area. And of comparable rates for Tampa hotels nearby the airport, I do believe we offer a nice alternative. And while... More

Musty smell coming from a/c, and it didn't cool entire room only near the a/c unit. Wasn't that warm out, but needed it just to cool room down. Don't... More

I was initially placed in an older room then got switched to one of their updated rooms which was much more pleasant from decor to softer mattress ! Be sure to ask for one of these. Employees were helpful and courteous. Nice low cost lodging stay. Hotel has about 6 routers for brick / concrete building. Internet strength was weak... More
