“great value...great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

my first time in st. pete. arrived by amtrak from ft. laud. pick up from train station by Enterprise. drove to hotel at night in rain. really appreciated ideal location just off exit of I 275. desk manager, mr. patel, was efficient and very helpful. room was clean, beds comfortable, pillows plump, sheets and towels spotlessly laundered. ac/heat ran well... tv with cable, and free wifi a plus! i wouldn't hesitate to stay here again...a real value!

This hotel was just great! Staff was excellent and was so accommodating to us. The room was super clean and the pool area was an excellent place to sit and get some sun. It is a large property and in a nice area. Close to the Interstate (that was a plus).
Will definitely return to this hotel!

Hello Carol W.
Thank you for your response. Your comments were reviewed by management and we then sought the confirmation from a professional pest control company to confirm that there was no sign of bed bugs throughout the facility. We take claims of such nature very serious and please be assured that we do not have any infestation on our property.
Our hotel has since completed renovations and now has on property a full restaurant and bar for our guests enjoyment.
We hope to have you back as our guest.

I had called the hotel notifying of late arrival; requested to charge credit card just to secure my room. To my surprise, they held my room without charging the credit card. Fast check-in and friendly staff. Room was immaculate. Great location to access I275 & very close to De Soto Fort.

I liked the location (3 miles from Tropicana Field and next to I-275), the very clean lobby and rooms, the in-room coffee, the fridge and micro-wave oven, the free coffee and juice in the lobby, the friendly counter staff, and the price (under $50.00 pre-tax).

I disliked nothing about this place.

I was attending a family reunion in Tampa at another hotel. Upon leaving for my trip back home. The Tampa/St/ Petersburg area was hit hard with down pours of heavy stormy rain as I was on 275 South the visibililty was so bad I couldn't even see in front of me so I exited on 54th Avenue North looking for a place to bed down for the night and I stumble across this hotel (well I wouldn't say it was hotel).

Didn't know where I was but I booked thinking it would not be so bad. I got a NO SMOKING room the minute I open the door I knew I was in the wrong place the room smelled of cigars and who only knows who else OMG!!!! very scary inside that room glad I choice no to take my bags out of the car but was nerve to leave them inside my car all night.

I remove the covers from the bed to sit on but I decided that was not a good idea no telling what would have crawled on me. So I stood up walking the hole time I was in the room.

The door deadbolt lock was not working when I call I was told the rooms on have two lock instead of 3 as all hotels do. Well that did it for me I had to seek other accomodations in the area.

So I waited until I was able to see if the area had better accomodations than this I think I should have took my chances with the storms and tornado's that Tampa & St. Petersburg was having that weekend.

I venture out to see what else was in the area couldnt believe around the 275 there was a beautiful Holiday Inn Express but I didn't see it when I exit the ramp as I said the visibility was awful. I immediately check in shared with the clerk at the hotel where I was he said to me glad you followed your mind to get out of there before dark??? Not sure why that meant but Iwas too.

Went back to check out of the dump & dive hotel from hell. Well I have a great story to tell once I get back home.

But take my advise don't stay there, don't even pull in the parking lot!!!!!!

This place needs to be demolished!!!!
