I chose this hotel because of its close proximity to the Ampitheater. There were a few hotels to choose from and this one sounded like a good fit. It was. The hotel is clean, the room pretty spacious with a king sized bed and a sleeper sofa. The bathroom wasn't huge but it was clean with plenty of towels and... More

Stayed here for 4 days. Convenient to almost everything to see in Tampa. Room was big and the breakfast is great. Very clean. The only drawback is that there are NO restaurants around the area. You have to travel to find even the most basic places to eat. But, you are close to Ybor City and the restaurants there are... More

This is a great location if you’re going to the fairgrounds, right across the street. It was a perfect choice for our one-night stay to attend a concert, no traffic hassles. This is a pretty basic hotel, nothing fancy, but well-done. We had a very spacious, clean, comfortable king bed suite. The bathroom had a huge counter, and was well-stocked... More

We reserved this hotel to be close to the fairgrounds for the April 18th Jimmy Buffett concert. The hotel and staff exceeded our expectations for service and overall experience.

This small mid-range hotel was a very good choice for us. We had business to do in Plant City, and this was a perfect location..... not far from Tampa and pretty close to Plant City. The rooms were very clean, and the staff was quite nice. The pool are was pretty basic, but adequate.
