“Would stay again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

I stayed only one night. I booked the room on-line through Wyndham Rewards. We checked-in very late - at around 3am but all my paperwork was ready and we could go to our room within a few minutes. I would definitely stay again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

I drove up to Tampa for Memorial Day weekend and stayed at this Howard Johnson location. For the low price, I was shocked to find this little gem. The hotel is well kept and nice. The free continental breakfast amenity was nice too. I got a chance to make my fave, waffles! The staff also made my stay enjoyable. Jackie was very helpful in trying to accommodate me checking in and Darryl was awesome in answering all of my questions. Nonetheless, my stay was so nice I extended my stay for an extra night. It's a little distance from USF but worth the drive and stay.
