I stayed 3 nights with my parents. We were very happy with our choice. We had a room with a king-size bed and a pull-out sofa, which was comfortable. The room had a small kitchen and was well-appointed with new furnishings. Breakfast was excellent: scrambled eggs, thick-cut bacon, sausage, potatoes, waffles, yogurt, fruit, muffins, cereal, etc. There is a small exercise room with a few cardio machines and an outdoor pool and hot tub. Free internet with a cable they provide. Free parking, and it is an easy 10-mile drive to downtown Tampa. Fast food and casual dining spots a short drive from the hotel.
There were no daily papers available on the premises, which is the one thing I would change.
This hotel is an outstanding value. Stay here and save your money, then splurge when you spend the day in the city. Also highly recommended: the Florida Aquarium and the Rusty Pelican restaurant for dinner at sunset on the bay.
