For $50-ish a night, this is a good value. The front staff was friendly, the room was clean, and the place was conveniently located for us. The only complaint we had was that the room smelled somewhat stale and like cigarette smoke, even though it was a non-smoking room. A little investigation showed us that the bathroom smelled like a... More

Three of us stayed at this property on June 8,m, 2012. We arrived to see a well kept property, the check in process was simple enough. I had booked the room though an online service. The Clerk at the front desk was very friendly. The reception area was clean and well lit. We were given our room keys to room... More

Non smoking room reeked of smoke. Front desk gave me a spray bottle to eliminate the odor. It did not work. Entire hotel was dirty. Pool was not clean. There was this peron staying at the hotel that was always around the looby and outside. We thought of him as the red roof in neighborhood watch person. Somewhat creepy. We... More

I was really attracted by the price and location for the hotel. The pictures looked appealing and was looking forward to staying here on our trip. But when we got the room it had a mildew smell, there was no toilet paper, cups or extra pillows. My TV had several lines going through the top of the screen. I should... More

The couple who checked us in was not friendly; they even ignored us and started talking in their native language - - how rude!!! The room smelled bad but cleared up after the air conditioner was on for 6 hours. No towels in the room; the front office didn't answer their phone so had to make a trip to the... More

Service at check-in was poor. Desk clerk was obviously talking to someone she knew on the phone and instead of hanging up when we walked in; instead she continued talking for about 3 minutes. As soon as she hung up the phone rang again and it was someone wanting to make a reservation. She should have asked them to hold... More

Not too close to Tampa, but if you don't mind a bit of a drive it's a pretty good value. Rooms were clean with comfy beds (pillows could be better though), free wifi and a nice work desk. Walking distance to McDonalds, Subway, BK, Wendys, and some other food places. Big mall and shopping center right on the other side... More

Room was clean and quiet. Bed slept great. They do allow small animals but you cannot smell evidence of them. Bob Evans next door. They do not have complimentary breakfast but they do have coffee.
