It was very clean and the staff was really nice and friendly. I did not have previous reservation and spotted this hotel on my way to Orlando but due to the bad weather I didn't want to take the chance and drive with my family. They gave us a Great rate and a chance to view the room. The Best front desk staff ever. Bonus was the Hot breakfast.

Had a great time. Found this hotel by chance. Hotel was spotless. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They shuttled us to and from Busch Gardens.
Manny, was a wonderful host (manager) at the hotel, informing us about the area and telling us stories of Tampa's history. The room was very comfortable and spacious. Would definitely recommend this place.

I enjoyed my stay again at this facility. The location was perfect across from the university. The staff was wonderful especially at the front desk.

I think all of us who are doing a review for this hotel better be careful because word is getting out about how great it is. If we keep spreading the word, we might find them all booked up when we come back with we KNOW we will. I had a recent business trip where I stayed for 14 nights. I TRIED to come up with just one negative during my stay and finally I did. They USED to carry grapefruit juice for breakfast but they now only carry orange and apple. So that's my complaint. There you have it. After 2 weeks it's all I could say negative. The desk staff, Adrian, Beatriz, Crystal and Genesis always went above and beyond. Manuel the manager obviously knows how to run a hotel! And then there is Cosmito. Talk about going above and beyond! He would do ANYTHING for you. In the dining area is Maggie and Connie were always so pleasant and helpful every morning at breakfast. My job will most likely be bringing me back to this area and I will absolutely be staying here again. That is if we all haven't ruined a good thing for ourselves by telling everyone what a terrific hotel this is.

Room Tip: There is no restaurant in the hotel but there is a wine and beer bar in the lobby.

It was such a pleasure to read your review. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. It was wonderful to read your comments about Manny and Cosmito. Beyond their duties as employees, it is part of their nature to go above and beyond for the wellbeing of others. We are so glad the only issue you could find was the grapefruit juice; I have to admit I am grapefruit juice drinker myself. Again, it was a pleasure having you here at our property and we look forward to seeing you on many more trips.

We had a room on the second floor which we found very acceptable with a large double bed, sofa area, microwave, fridge, and en-suite. A large room which we thought was great. We found the hotel clean and tidy, though eating off polystyrene plates and using plastic knives & forks for breakfast took a bit of getting used to. Breakfast though was good with a range of choices of things to eat. I would stay at this hotel again and would use the chain in other areas based on my experience here.
