5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Location, location, location...this is the place to be! There are plenty of places to go up and down Mabry street. St. Pete's is only 15 minutes away and we were abe to visit plenty of other shopping centers. The manager, Mrs. Cruz, and her staff were incredible! The rooms were clean, quiet neighborhood and there is a public park around the corner. The breakfast in the morning is more than what was expected. I only wish we could have stayed longer! We are definitely booking here for our next visit!Thank you Mrs. Cruz for your devotion and service!

Everything was great, except my CC was charged for the room, as was the CC of the person who set up the reservation. (when I arrived, he asked for my CC and I said the room was already paid for. he said no, it wasn't, so I whipped out my CC. The next day my handler called to say her CC was charged for the full price of the room) She is working on a resolution to that. Other than that, the service was great, the room was clean and I got a great night's sleep!

We flew in and out of Tampa on Spring Break. Needed a hotel that was convenient to the airport and the highway. Checked Trip Advisor saw the reviews and booked online through HOJOs. A very basic looking drive up hotel that has been spruced up. Yes there is road noise and it can get very busy, but the rooms were clean, the beds comfortable (double queen beds!) and the staff very accomodating (Kathy at breafast was so nice!). You get what you pay for, a clean, comforatble room. if you need a place to rest your head to start or end a vacation, you can do much worse.
