Our stay here was terrible. We requested a non-smoking, queen room. We received a smoking, full room. They would not let us switch rooms and said that the full bed was a queen according to their standards. Our bed was not fully made, and the top sheet had blood on it. The wifi would not connect. Also, the receptionist was...

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....

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. My husband frequently stays at Holiday Inn Express across the country for work, so he recognized the tell-tale signs that this was...

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...
