I loved the lady that kept coming around to see if everyone needed anything while we were eating. It was like being served. Such hospitality. It isn't too far... More

On our recent road trip through Florida and Georgia this was the one hotel I had the least expectations from and in hindsight it was the best place we stayed that trip for comfort and value. Our room was quiet, very clean and very comfortable. The location was perfect for visiting friends and exploring Tampa. On the opposite side of... More

As long haul professional drivers, we have stayed at numerous hotels across America.

Well first of all let me say this is an old "motel". Everything is in need of up-dating. The room was ok, pretty much what you expected from seeing the outside. Definitely could have been cleaned a little better, but nothing gross. Check in was easy enough and the man who checked us in was nice. We arrived late at... More

The room was comfortable and well equipped. They have free parking which is always great! The breakfast had a good selection and the staff were friendly and helpful. It was very useful having guest laundry on site! The location was good for the city and busch gardens!

I booked this hotel after reading all the great reviews. We arrived after a long drive from Ohio at around midnight on a Friday. The overall appearance of the hotel is very nice. But there were a lot of shady looking people (what I would call thugs) hanging around in the parking lots. The area did not feel safe, maybe... More

I thank both managers Bobby G and Neema for allowing me to be a guest at their hotel at such a short notice.

Very pleasant stay. Hotel was excellent and I would stay here again. Perfect location just off the expressway and only 6 minutes away from the Hard Rock Casino. Can't complain too much as the room had a medium sized refrigerator, safe, free wifi, free continental breakfast, free USA Today newspaper, and even toiletries if you need them. The only reason...

Hotel is two floors and has an elevator. Large king bed room with plenty of room for luggage. Lighting good and black-out shades were excellent. Love the deflector over the A/C/heat to keep air in room, not up inside drapes. Bed comfy and bedding very nice. Wifi not working or slow much of the time. TV had a good picture,... More
