This place should be burnt down and replaced. Looks like any available money was spent on making the lobby and pool area enticing, and not a penny on rooms (I know because I had seen three rooms before deciding they weren't going to get any better, so I sucked up and took the last one offered). This is possibly the second worse hotel I have ever stayed in (the worst was Seabreeze Motel in Atlantic City).
I chose this hotel because of location, location, location....and that the only thing it has going for it...it is convenient to Florida Hospital Tampa on Fletcher Ave.
The hotel rooms remind me of 1950's or 1960's furnishings (although the TV was color -- not flat screen though! and had cable hookup! And there is internet hookup -- unsecure, though, -- but good enough for me to enter this review from the room).
The rooms smell old, the blankets and bedding appear to be the same ones used whenever this hotel first opened in the 1950's or whenever....and the bedding in the first room we looked at was full of holes and stains....as was the furniture. This room, and the rooms that were offered in consolation, all have the same dingy blankets, covers, sheets....and the furniture is stained...the lamps broken and some won't even light.
My next letter after this review will be to Choice hotels to let them know how terrible their hotel is.
Believe me, and the other negative reviews you will find on this site....this place is one location, location, location that you want to stay away from.
