The room was better than I expected. When I pulled up to hotel, it was on a major street and didn't look all that great from the outside but the pool area was nice and clean and the room was better than expected

Staff at front desk (Dannielle) was very helpful throughout the visit. Only comment about the room itself, the bath fixtures, shower, walls should be updated to be more competitive with other hotels in the area. However the room was attractive otherwise.

Very nice place...big, comfy room, great desk staff...nice location (close to the airport, interstates). If someone had business at McDill, it would be a prime place to stay.

I traveled with my daugther and I felt very insecure, outside the rooms men drinking, buiding montains of empty cans, chairs on the parking lot, right outside our door. Seems not to bother the employees, we couldnt sleep for the noice of loud drunk people. not good at all...

Even though my accommodations were a fine aspect of my stay (pool was lovely too!), ALL employees were the highlight due to their warm manner and helpfulness. (I hope that this is a result of good employer/employee fairness.)
