“Very Clean. Good Rates and Service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

In town for business w/my family and stayed here over a two week period. Very clean comfortable rooms and not a speck of mold anywhere in the three rooms we slept in. Relaxing hotel atmosphere, centric location and very courteous hotel staff. Manager George Casanova was attentive to our needs, friendly, helpful and very professional. Every time I'm in town I'll make this hotel my home away from home.

The thing that makes this hotel stand out is the location -- central to the airport, downtown, and area attractions. Also for people who like to go out for runs in the morning some of Tampa's best neighborhoods are right out your door. However, the rooms are average at best. The hotel really could use an upgrade. Not dirty or unkept, just old.

My mom,sister and I went to the Gulf coast to Bradenton and wanted to stay near the airport because I had to catch a early flight(5 AM). We booked a family suite so we all had our own bed.I am always nervous about going to a new place but this motel is great. Check in was a breeze. It was clean,smelled good and the air conditioning was superb. The price was great for 2 rooms,2 baths and 2 TVs even. We had to leave so early we didn't get to taste breakfast and no pool time for us either but everything else was so nice.It is also very close to the airport-5-10 drive. Overall a great place.

Room Tip: If you are traveling with a family,the suite is the way to go-under $100 a night and you can sleep...

I've had bad experiences with BW before, so when they booked this room for a convention, I was already thinking it was going to be bad, and it was. First the room was booked through Hotels.com, who cancelled the reservation without our knowledge. We were told this happens frequently between the two. They did have a spare room though. The water in the shower is constantly cold. It takes half an hour to heat, then it leaks. The AC is on cold, but the room is barely cooled. The hallway has a foul smell, and looks dirty, as does the carpets in the rooms. The good part is that if you need to eat quickly, they have a passable breakfast, and the refrigerators are fairly good sized.

We stayed in mid-April and booked through priceline so I was a little worried when I read the reviewer who mentioned her expedia reservation wasnt honored. To confirm the reservation I called ahead the day before and there was no issue at all.

Check in was a breeze. We actually arrived much earlier than the allowed check in time but the front desk attendant was more than accommodating and provided us with a room and info on the area so he was extremely helpful (older gentleman, cant recall his name unfortunately).

The room itself was nothing to write home about but the beds were comfortable, the fridge was clean and the air conditioning workes good. The hotel pool was also clean and a nice option. As others mentioned there is a breakfast option at the hotel but there is a IHOP right next door if you prefer something more than cereal/bagels/toast/muffins etc.

The location is fantastic. There are restaurants, gas stations, walgreens, malls, beaches and downtown options all within 20 minutes. So if you are going to be traveling throughout the area, are looking for a place to rest your head and dont want to pay highend prices and parking I highly recommend this as an option.
