I hadn't stayed here since the 1990's when it was a Holiday Inn Express and brand new. I really wasn't expecting that much but was pleasantly surprised. The staff was awesome and the room was very comfortable and quiet. Might want to update the TVs but who goes to Florida to watch TV?

Stayed at the Ruskin in for 4 days on a business meeting. Although the price was very reasonable, for any amount of money, the rooms were spacious, quiet and clean. The staff was helpful and friendly. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I ever had in a hotel. All this and they serve a hot breakfast. If... More

We stayed at this hotel over the 2013 Christmas holiday. The hotel is reasonably clean and good value for the cost. The room was large, although the in-room fridge did not cool very well. The breakfast bar was typical for this class of hotel, but was welcome when needed for a quick breakfast snack. The free wi-fi worked well and... More

For under $80 a night, you can't beat it. The room was very clean and service friendly. The free breakfast buffet is par for the course as far as economy hotels go. But it serves it purpose for a quick bite before an early morning checkout. Overall, I'd say the hotel is about equivalent to a Holiday Inn Express. I'd... More

The staff was friendly. The building could use a lot of remodeling and the room was infested with bed bugs and I wound up with several bites. I also found four ticks crawling around the room. Breakfast was served and was a McDonald's style spread.

I have zero complaints about this hotel. It was clean and quiet and the beds were comfortable. The front desk folks were helpful and very nice. We only stayed one night after early arrival to our destination. Would stay here again!

This was the hotel we went to after one look at the Sun City Center Inn down the road. This was like the Ritz Carlton compared to that motel. Yes the ceilings need work and there does need to be some updating on a bunch of things, but it was clean and comfortable. The people at the front desk are... More

The hotel on Orbitz is listed as 3 star. The hotel is a 1 on a good day. You walk in and it smells terribly from smoke. The room had mold in bathroom and showering the water did not drain. The hotel is stuck in the 80s decor and staff was unpleasant. I would never go back.

The Ruskin Inn is clean, has great beds in a beautiful location and pet friendly. Enjoyed stay. Only negative was that the coffee was the worst I have ever had. McDonalds across the street make it a plan to go for coffee
