First let me start off by saying, we travel on a average of twice a year, and have done plenty of travel. From all-inclusive 4 stars resorts to one night stops in Howard Johnsons. We usually do a family trip around April and our anniversary trip every year on June. This year we decided to switch it around, and took... More

The hotel room was clean. Located near many stores and restaurants. Did not get very cool in the room. The pool was nice, but hot, but you are in Florida. The staff was friendly, and the breakfast was good. Overall an ok stay.

Breakfast was ok... More

You can't beat the price for the accommodations that you are getting near TPA. Just make sure that you plug in all of the appliances in your room. You wouldn't think a refrigerator wouldn't have that done, but food went bad because the unit was unplugged, as was the microwave and coffeepot.

We stayed here for just one day but were extremely happy with the room. We requested a smoking room and it didn't smell overly bad. We also had a kitchenette in the room which was surprising. Great location.
