“Very Clean”

Just wanted a cheap place that had good reviews. We were very pleased with how clean the place was. Great place for the money! Staff was very nice. Great complimentary breakfast! Beds were super comfortable.

The Ramada Inn at Morris Bridge Rd., in Tampa, FL was a pleasure to visit. Unlike other hotels I have stayed in, our room smelled incredibly clean and really looked clean. Very pleasant pool. Good choice of continental breakfast. I will stay in this hotel any time we visit Tampa, FL.

Room Tip: First floor room, very comfortable with parking right infront of our room.

My best motel experience so far in the USA, much better than other similarly priced chains, by this I mean around $65 on Expedia (Qualifier: I've stayed in most other chains and not comparing against a Courtyard). The room feels new and smells good. Clean toilet, walls, carpet, linen. Everything works, and there's even a pool which looks clean enough to use. No hesitation in recommending this place to anyone. We even got the chance to do our laundry here. There is only one washer and two dryers (we were lucky as it was unused at the time). I was a little concerned before the trip after seeing some recent negative reviews here on Tripadvisor. But I'm glad I did not encounter any of the problems reported. Our main reason for stopping by Tampa was to head to Busch Gardens. So location-wise, this place is perfect. As it is close to the highway, it was really easy to head to the steakhouse at Hard Rock casino for dinner too. I had the huge rib steak at Council Oak and would definitely recommend the restaurant to other steak lovers. Make sure you call ahead to make reservations. I didn't realize this and could only secure a table at 10:30PM on the day.

The room was very clean and newly remodeled. The bed, pillows and comforter were also brand new and very comfortable. The staff was very attentive and polite during check in, breakfast and check out. The continental breakfast was great and the area was well maintained and clean. This hotel is very close to USF and Bush Gardens. (There are closer hotels near the attractions but I was warned not to stay due to the area.) IHOP is located in the parking lot which is very convenient.

Room Tip: Ground floor facing the IHOP was a great location.

By far the absolute worst Ramada I have ever stayed. The place is run down and not in a good area. The property is not is in serious need of remodeling or better yet, tear it down and start again. The front desk person at night, was very nice and friendly. That is the only nice thing I can stay about this hotel. Next time I am in the area, I will pay $10-$15/night and get a decent room.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your business & also for your review. Your suggestion to tear the Hotel down is being forwarded to the Owners. I believe the Hotel owners owns the land too. If you are interested to buy the property, I might as well convey that to the Owners. I am glad that you were happy with the services rendered by the person working at check in. Once again, thank you for your business as also the reiview. While we are still here, if you happen to be in the area & need a lodging facility we would like to serve you once again.
