Overall the hotel was nice, the breakfast was good, and the front desk workers were pleasant. However, I was disappointed with the condition of the carpet in my hotel room because it was filthy and I had to keep my shoes on at all times. When I asked about the stains I was told that the carpet gets cleaned every... More

The overall appearance of the hotel was very attractive. Staff was friendly and the food was good. I noticed that some guest maybe living in this facility. More locals than out of town guest stay for the use of the pool and such. The bedding was less than desirable, very thin and used. carpet had major stains, maybe because of... More

The area doesn't look the best, but the hotel was really nice. It's quiet here, my room was very clean, and the WiFi is fast. No complaints. It's clean decent, and convenient area restaurants, drug stores, and a Walmart. A business persons dream locale. I'd certainly stay again.

Actually had a reservation for 4 nights, but after staying 1, we canceled the others. Knew that this hotel wasn't that old, had a fire, but thought it would be in good condition. The people were nice, but the room smelled funny, carpet was stained, bathroom had cracked tiles, and the towels were sub-par. Room was not good and neither... More

The manager and staff of this hotel are always very courteous and nice to me. They are also friendly and pleasant to deal with. The location is excellent for me because it is close to my Tampa Florida office.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times with my family and we have enjoyed our stay everytime. We take advantage of the fitness room and the outdoor pool and spa. I'm a bit picky about hotels and this one has met my expectations with Great people, Clean rooms, and a Good breakfast.

Due to an unfortunate incident at another hotel we walked out of we were told this one was the only one with rooms left in the area. First of all the area is sketchy and I would not recommend for people with small kids or young spring breakers. My children were a little scared. Second it is a very high... More

Our experience here was not happy one. We used this hotel as it was the closest to my mother who is in a nearby nursing home in Carrollwood neighborhood of Tampa. Breakfast is fine and pool area is ok. If you have a pet this might work otherwise my advise is go somewhere else. On two different visits we requested... More

The rooms are very dark and dreary. No shuttle and only fast food within walking distance. Area felt unsafe. There are so many great hotels in Tampa. Do not stay here. The cab ride from the airport was $30.
