I read reviews about this hotel being loud but didn't think it would bother us as we are heavy sleepers. We booked our stay using the Priceline name your price tool so we got 40 to 50% off, which I guess means they can give you their worst imaginable room. Our room was on the first floor, first room off... More

Dear GFam2015, I'm sorry you didn't fully enjoy your stay with us. Your comments are very eye opening to me. The new ceramic tiles (not faux wood) were installed purposely during the renovation for people with allergies to avoid dust bunnies and other things that collect in carpets. There are only 3 more rooms past that room, so I don't... More

My husband and I are not the types that typically stay at best Western hotels. Wherever we go we usually stay at the very best hotel and resort of each town we visit. Five stars are typically the least we like to go. But while visiting Tampa last December, we did not need to spend money for the best hotel... More

I booked a room partially because of the reviews and in part because of good experiences with Best Western properties elsewhere. It was almost a disastrous mistake. I like to stay in Tampa when I have early morning flights out of TIA. Upon arrival there were 2 employees behind the counter. A couple was being moved from what I overheard... More

Dear Gary V, I'm sorry about your experience with us and thank you for such a complete and thorough review. As was evidenced by your 10 minute wait at check in, we take time with our guests to make things right. As you say, at the restaurant, the menu was not impressive to you. I know the décor is not...

We needed some place to stay close to the Tampa Airport to catch an early morning plane. This was under $100 for a king room and seemed to be reasonable quality. Everything was as expected except that the room was quite warm (thermostat set on 72) and the ac didn't cool the room down until about 3 am. We were... More

Dear Robert H, Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us. I'm sorry the a/c spoiled what was otherwise a good stay.

Good value hotel, it was the most reasonable price we found in Tampa and facilities are adequate. The Hulk Hogan resturant and bar is not ideal for dinining or drinks....only outside facility open after 11pm on Saturday night. There was traffic and music noise as stated in many of the other reviews but nothing that kept us awake at night....however... More

I found this hotel to be difficult to get to. I missed the turn for it twice! Fortunately, I didn't have to go over the bridge before I realized my mistake the first time. Then I missed it again coming back towards it. I've never been to Tampa before and was already uncomfortable and disoriented. The poorly marked entrance to... More

Dear Don619, I'm sorry for the mix up. After the current management company took over the hotel, we cut down a couple of decorative palm trees, ordered a new road sign and put the largest signs on the side of building that we could in order to make the hotel easier to find from the causeway. I don't know what... More
