I get it. You get what you pay for. A hotel at this price, this close to downtown Tampa, the airport and the port isn't going to be a luxury tower that has you planning a return trip as soon as you check out. All we hope for at this rate is a clean, safe, quiet place to spend a... More

Stayed one night since we didn't want to drive back to the beach after a heavy meal with adult beverages. The room was clean but way long in the tooth. Maybe some rooms are being updated but this isn't one of them. This was just a place to crash for the night and leave right after a ho-hum breakfast. It... More

Older hotel but clean and comfortable. Pretty good value for a short stay. Not many nicer restaurants close but there are various chain restaurants within 2 miles. Staff was very friendly and willing to help with any question I had.

This hotel has gotten better since the last time I stayed here, it is an older hotel, but recent renovations have given it back some life... I would say there are other less expensive options in the area, but none of them are demonstrably 'better' than this one & there are some which are far worse. I did find out... More

Our beds and bathroom were clean, but the carpet was gross- my kids' feet were black just walking on the carpet for 30 minutes. The pool was clean and breakfast was OK. Seems overpriced for what you receive.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. I would like to agree that the hotel does require some updating. We are currently in the process of changing out our guest room carpets and remolding our guest bathrooms. We are aware that these changes are long over due and make the hotel show its age. I...

Don't stay at this dump!!!!!!! The rooms are nasty, nothing worked, & smelled really bad..... Walked in the room for 5 seconds and walked out.... We asked for a refund....The management was very rude and refused to give our money back after they said they would give it back to us. This is hotel is less than a one star....... More

This is an "airport" hotel in name only... it takes more than a few minutes to get to this hotel from the airport. This hotel is older and shows signs of age , but our room had fresh paint, a flat-panel TV, microwave, and refrigerator, so some efforts have been made to keep things up to date. The carpeting looks... More
