The staff was very helpful and nice. The hotel and room was clean. The price was good and I enjoyed our stay very much. I would return to the hotel when in the neighborhood. The chicken fingers at Zaxbys next door were very good!

This hotel was very clean, well maintained and I got what I was promised. The pool was clean and the location was very well situated to the airport. Lots of place to eat around the hotel. The service was great and the cost was very reasonable. Highly recommend this hotel.

We have stayed in this hotel many times. Everything was good with the exception of mildew/mold on the shower curtain and dirty carpet in our room. It seems the management may not be as concerned with the state of the rooms as in the past. The public areas were clean, the breakfast was good and well stocked. The check in... More

The manager Mr Patel does not feel that being woken at 3am and inconvenienced to move rooms with 2 kids under 6 warrants any type of refund, so beware as sympathies did not lie with me and my sleepless night after a four hour journey was hellish! Oh and his reasoning is that because I was still in a hotel... More

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. We do apologize again that you were not satisfied with the neighbors you had on this trip. As you recall, the front desk did approach the guest directly and ensured that the noise stopped, and we also arranged rooms on a high occupancy night to try and ease... More

Very nice place to stay - comfortable, very care taking Helpful with late plane arrivals, travel to airport, food close by, one of our favorite locations in northeast. Staff is always helpful - from late arrivals to finding something reasonable to eat at midnight.

We booked this hotel as we were coming at late notice due to a death in my family. There was limited availability in the Tampa area and I must admit I was hesitant to stay due to staying usually closer to the airport. What a pleasant surprise! It's not a 5 star luxury hotel but the staff and management really... More

The Hotel was good. My kids enjoyed. The Gym will need a little more equipment. We had problems with the tablet connecting to the Wi-Fi. The staff was friendly and respectful. My kids and their friends went for the Sunset Music Festival. They were lucky I was with them. The hotel did not accept under 21 years old and the... More
