“ugly stinked up room”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

This hotel was the definition of false.Non-smoking room was full of cigarette smell.It was in the curtains,towels,sheets,pillows,and every other spot in the room.The bathroom was horrible,no water pressure to speak of,and a filthy tub and curtain.The room was only cleaned in common areas.If you looked behind dressers and such it was filthy,little pieces of trash and cigarette ash,it looked as if the room had not been cleaned in months.

Love the updated rooms! The retro furniture fits this blast from the past. This hotel looks like it's brand new. The staff was great. My husband travels in Florida every couple of months and now has a new place to stay. For travelers who are on business and don't want a heavy meal, there is a fresh market next door, great to go food.

Updated and very clean 1950's motel. Fair sized rooms. Beds need replacement. Staff very pleasant. Convenient location with good restaurants within walking distance. Prompt van service to/from airport and at extra charge to cruise port. Fair value for a few days touring or cruise stop.

I was going on a cruise leaving the Tampa port and needed to fly in the day before. After comparing the many hotel options near the Tampa port I came upon this hotel. A great rate, free shuttle service from the airport, free full hot breakfast, free WiFi internet, and to top it off - only $8 one-way transportation to the cruise port. All other hotels I contacted were charging at least $20. Very courteous front desk staff and shuttle drivers.

A big thank you to the manager Dave and Al and all their team for a great stay. Look forward to our return one day when we are back in the U S A. We stayed in a ground floor room near to the pool and it had two large beds. This is a budget hotel and is great value for money. The team took the time to talk to us and the breakfast was great. Would recommend to people visiting Tampa who are on a budget.

Room Tip: Ground floor near to the pool

We stayed one night before our cruise and one night upon returning. Hotel was full on both occasions but you wouldn't know it because the rooms were nice and quiet. It is an older hotel but very clean. We appreciated the free shuttle to and from the airport as well as the free internet access in the lobby for printing boarding passes. The shuttle to and from the cruise terminal was convenient and fairly priced. A special shout-out to Allen at the front desk and Dave our shuttle driver- both were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed one night and I will definetly stay here again. Shuttle from the airport was great. Staff was extremely friendly and helpfull. Great resturant(Grill Smith) next door. Our room was very clean and the large flat screen tv was a bonus. Only possible draw back is the the rooms have "outside" entry, but we felt very safe. Shuttle to Cruise Terminal was very conveient. There was a Publix just one block from the hotel. I highly recommend this hotel
