I booked this hotel thinking that it was in north Tampa booking through Expedia. I found out that it was in south Tampa and tried to cancel immediately. I was told that I would have to go through Expedia but that cancellation was possible. I called Expedia who said the hotel had to agree, and Expedia talked to the manager....

We only stayed here for a few hours, literally. Checked in at 5pm and left at 10am. Not bad for what we paid. The girl at the counter was the best. The guy at night was rude. Not updated but if you only want to sleep this is the one to go...

To expensive for what we got. No flat screen tv, dirty sheets, very old and musty place. Lots of old water stains on our rooms ceiling, place needs a ton of work.

2 star hotel right off the highway, close to Sun City Center the Hillsborough Community College. For the price I can even handle the limited continental breakfast. If money is not really tight then you may want to consider the hotel across the street but I had no complaints with the Ruskin Inn.

This is an no brand motel that makes an effort. Reasonably clean, friendly desk. Breakfast is a step below the normal oatmeal and muffin at a national 3 star. Don't expect much and you will be ok. Next door to convenience store and across the street from McDonalds and a pizza joint.

We stayed here Fri - Tues to help my in-laws move into Sun City Center. I had read the reviews of the three hotels in the area and decided to take a chance on the middle priced option.

DO NOT STAY HERE- HORRIBLE customer service and management team, beyond horrible. I had a complete incident out of my control that left a small stain on a sheet and they charged me $100 and wouldn't give me information to talk to their boss about getting it refunded. Worst hotel experience I have ever had. Never have I been charged...

Every hotel in area was full or were $300+/night. SPRING BREAK! After searching for hours for a place to stay, came upon this hotel by accident. Appeared to be an ex-franchise converted to independent hotel, which can't be a good sign. Was pleasantly surprised by cleanliness, comfortable beds, pool, and very reasonable cost. Didn't partake of the free breakfast offered...
