We stayed for one night. The property has clearly been remodeled recently. Our room, while simple and small, was lovely. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was well appointed. We had a bit of noise - there were college students there for a competition and they were incredibly loud, running up and down stairs, hitting the railing in... More

We came to Tampa for a college tour of USF and stayed here because it was close to campus and affordable. Our room was nicely appointed and very clean. There was a small refrigerator, microwave and a coffee machine. Definitely a plus. The courtyard and pool area looked very nice too but it was a bit chilly out so we... More

Our family of 4 stayed here for two nights, including New Year's Eve. We had an excellent stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious, clean and quiet. We had a suite, so the kids had their own sleeping area and TV which was nice. The rooms all overlook the courtyard pool, which, I agree with... More

The hotel has undergone major renovation, to a courtyard with Koi pond, pool and feel of a Caribbean mansion. Rooms with very warm bright decor of aqua, off white and pale wood. Separate bath area that can be closed off with a siding door. Very upscale, classic modern look. My room had a tropical foliage setting, pool below. There is... More

At first we got a good laugh at the lights held together by zip ties and the scary elevator but by 1am we were no longer laughing. There is a bar and pool in the court yard and all of the rooms surround that area so any time before 230 am is LOUD LOUD LOUD. I would recommend this hotel... More
