“Disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Of course, the price attracted me but I expected way better than what people said about this hotel. It wasn't that clean, a little old, no elevator, the aircon was so old and noisy. The only thing great was its location, if you're a young adult willing to go out at night (lots of bars and restaurants around).

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

This was a fine two night stay in a perfect location with free parking and very comfortable beds with memory foam mattresses. Hotel is a converted apartment building, so room has a full kitchen. Staff very cordial and helpful. Clean and comfortable with the charm of an older building. Walking distance to some of the best Tampa restaurants and nightlife. Would certainly return. Good value.

Room Tip: Request room on first floor.

It was cozy rustic sort of old school movie picture sort of environment. They even have a business center comodo 24 Atari era bizarre setting when you can check your social media in the middle of the lobby. Bizarre, kitch, 60s decore make this place comforting for
A one night stand. Kitchen is ready to cook and IHOP is 24/7. Take it or leave it . This is the place to be on a Monday night on your way to elsewhere a couple hours later. The bees is masmellow meaning is moist textured and absorbing. You well rested sleepy fairy style. Magical morning. Try it.

Great location. Safe neighborhood. Can walk to everything.
Short cab ride to downtown. Friendly staff. It is old but clean. Rooms are a bit small but they have a kitchenette. All you need. Free parking as well.

Main attraction was a place to charge our car in Tampa. One level 2 charger and 5 NEMO 14-50 plugs recently installed in the parking area. I think it is under new ownership/management.

Quirky, almost European feel in an older (?historic) building in a walkable, mixed neighborhood that appears to be on the upswing. Very helpful staff when booking. We arrived late after 11PM and used their keyless entry system/lock box outside the room to "check" ourselves in - a little unconventional, but it worked well. Room was tight - small built in desk & 2 chairs, no room for a lounge chair, but was very clean. Only stayed one night, but the room had a fridge, small microwave, toaster & coffee maker for longer stays. Free WiFi. Bathroom appeared recently renovated with nice quality fixtures and tile. Plenty of water pressure/hot water. Very comfortable king size bed & a jacuzzi that we didn't have time to use.

Can't really compare to a chain, but if you're adventurous and want to experience being part of an urban neighborhood - could be a good fit. And if you're driving an EV, it's one of the few places where you can stay in Tampa and get electrons.

We typically do not stay outside the chain motels/hotels, We stayed here because we needed a room at last minute an our friends from Washington had stopped in a few months prior an said it was a decent an affordable place with a good location. So, we gave it a try; we enjoyed our stay, being older couple we were given a discount an given a very clean room. Ice could have been much better. Easy to take a taxi to decent restaurants. Very simple place; good for one night try an stay. We'll stay with chain next time.

This hotel is NOT worth the money. Rooms are too small, incredibly scuffed wood floors, dated furniture and decor, and unfriendly staff. The air filter in the AC had not been changed in months and caused my guests and I to wake up stuffy and sneezing. THE PLACE REEKED OF CIGARETTES. They dont allow you to make any noise and there is definitely not enough parking. Just say no.
