“BED BUGS!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

This is the first review I've ever posted but you need to be warned!! Room was infested with BED BUGS!! Maybe could have gotten past the smell of sweat and God knows what else in the room and on the dirty sheets. Probably could have ignored the dirty towels. Maybe could have overlooked the loud people outside the room at 3:00 in the morning or the cigarette smoke wafting into my non-smoking room. But i woke up and have since found over 20 bug bites all over my arms and torso. This place is disgusting, unsanitary, and should be condemned. Save yourself and please find another place to stay. It is not worth the couple bucks you might save. Oh and just to top it off, their WIFI service is terrible as well.

Room Tip: Room 236 is infested with bed bugs!!

We needed a place to stay near the zoo. This was one of the closest. We've stayed in a number of Travelodges and the one in Redondo Beach, CA was by far the best.

The Good: Friendly Staff, Clean Sheets, Running Water. Really stretching it..

The Bad: No remote control, we had to call the front desk but couldn't - the phone didn't work. Remotes are only given out when requested since the normal clientele steals them. The remote had a screw in it to deter theft of the battery. Oh, this was a good sign.... The A/C / Heater did something, but didn't 'work'. Not the best area of town (not their fault). Asked for a non-smoking and got it, but there was a slight smell. Other reviewers said it was much worse, but we think it was just outside smell / draft.

We will look elsewhere if need to stay in Tampa again.

This was THE FIRST hotel that I stayed at when I first visited Tampa I stayed in room 147 which is by the pool,pretty nice room the only thing is the room smelled of mold I brought air freshener but the smell stuck in the room. There is a Taco Bell in the same parking lot which I frequented on my stay I probably would not stay here again due to the cable channels not many options MORE sports channels than actual TV Hotel really needs an upgrade the Holiday Inn next door is CLEARLY in the wrong area.. also I killed 3 roaches... and there was a dead roach in the Microwave and the fridge.

Room Tip: PLEASE ask to see the room BEFORE you pay. you are allowed to veiw the room before you pay!! do not...
