We recently stayed at this hotel and enjoyed our visit. We arrived late but Dorothy R. was helpful and friendly. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. We definitely will try to stay at this hotel on our next trip to Tampa.

I travel to this hotel every month and stay due to its location. Its conveniently located close to I-4 and the east side of Tampa. Two associates, Dorothy and Monet at the front desk really make this place great. Both have great personalities and are very courteous and helpful to the guests. I Look forward to seeing them each month.... More

This was our first visit to this hotel. Our company was in the area doing business, we travel often for work, and this hotel exceeded our expectations. The hotel was very well kept inside and out. The staff was very pleasant and attentive to our requests. We will definitely be staying here again.

This is the first time we have stayed at this property. All of your staff from the front desk to house keeping were wonderful. We had one complaint when leaving and it was noted by the desk clerk.

Great location if you are going to the Fairgrounds for an event. Just walk across the street! The hotel was clean and relatively new. My only two disappointments were: Elevators were very slow, 1-3 minutes for a 4 floor hotel. Wait and wait for it to arrive. The second problem was the air conditioning. There are no thermostats in the... More
