We arrived late to hotel after 8pm after driving over 4 hours in traffic from Captiva Island. After experiencing great hospitality throughout our trip in Florida from Ft. Lauderdale to Naples to Sanibel. We were excited to end our trip in Tampa. But sadly there was no friendly smile here. The receptionist took her time and never even looked up to acknowledge us. No name tag. No hello. It was an awkward moment. At least the room was clean, free breakfast, and less than 10 minutes to airport... but nothing memorable.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

We stayed in this Hotel while in the area last year and had a comfortable stay and so chose to stay again this year prior to an early flight from Tampa to London, The room was comfortable and convenient on the ground floor for last minute packing etc. and the business centre was useful for checking in for our flight. The Hotel is near the airport so there is aircraft noise also trains run nearby.
I have to say the staff at the Front Desk were mostly helpful but the problem arose when we needed hot water! There was luke warm water in the taps and when I reported the problem to the Front Desk I was told it was due to energy efficiency(!) and to run the bath water for FIFTEEN minutes and it would get hot! This did not happen and it was late so we gave up trying to take a shower or bath .
I have mobility problems and need a hot bath to ease pain in the morning but still no hot water! Eventually after my husband rang the Front Desk yet again we were given the key to the next door room where we could take a shower or bath ! We thought one of the basic requirements in a Hotel is hot water so on checking out my husband requested an adjustment to our bill and eventually 10% was deducted which seemed a derisory amount for the inconvenience we had endured.
Needless to say we will not be staying here again

Room Tip: Choose a room where there is hot water in the taps! Room 101 has a problem!

Was in town a year ago to see a Bucs game...What a great location to the stadium . hotel offers free parking for guests and the stadium is within walking distance. Free breakfast in the morning too an added plus. Would recommend.

We have stated at this hotel many times as it is very comfortable and the staff is very friendly. It is conviently located in the middle of so many attractions, resturants and activities. When staying in Tampa, this is our number one choice.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and quite.

If you are wanting a hotel that offers true customer service and actually feels like a throw back to when customers came first. THIS IS the place for you. I am a coach of a ball team and have traveled for 12 years and we hit them with 58 kids and they didn't miss a beat. From the check in and check out and everything in between it went smoothly. The girls that were working during our saty were a mother and daughter team and WOW, breakfast was first rate and our experience can't be upstaged. Apon leaving we intended to go to the Varsity in Atlanta, But do to travel restrictions we were looking for a place a little closer...And they even reccomended that "The Coliegate" The burgers were amazing and caped off our tournament with a band..We WILL be back.

Clean, friendly service, good food, free wi-fi in room, not a bad location.

Not all of the tv channels worked and when you have a small child that you would like to turn on PBS for while you pack but you can't because it's not working, that's a problem.

Breakfast was good, eggs, bacon, cereal, yogurt, fruit, bread, bagels, and waffles. There is a toaster and a waffle maker however there is only 1 waffle maker and it takes 2 min for 1 waffle to come out. Would like to see a 2nd one get put as there was a line.

Good size room. I was in a 2 Queen bedroom and it was great. Small fridge (no freezer section), microwave, coffee maker, closet with door, desk, dresser, couch, chair, and coffee table. Beautiful bathroom: shower/tub combo with good water pressure.

I requested a room not on the 1st floor and on the backside of the hotel (for noise control from the main road). They apologized when I arrived that they couldn't put me in the back because all queen beds are along the front of the hotel but that they could put me on the 4th floor. I told them not a problem (what am I going to do, complain until they moved the beds to another room?) and we went to our room. There was no issue with noise. I heard 1 airplane fly over after 8pm and hardly any cars. So recommend asking for a room not on the 1st floor and you'll be fine.

Overall, yes I will stay here again. Even considered extending my stay another night because it's only 15 minutes from Busch Gardens and 30 minutes from the coast in Clearwater. If you're looking for a place close to the airport without the noise, this is a good one because it's only 5 minutes down the road and you don't hear planes at night.

Room Tip: Higher floor room will help cut the noise from the road.
