I had the pleasure of staying at this cute little hotel for a business trip. I spent three nights here. I found my room to be extremely clean, as well as the rest of the property. There were some minor stains in the carpet in the hallway however I'm not sure how the staff could avoid that with people coming... More

Excellent hotel and staff. I was surprised as I had stayed in a La Quinta in the area before and it was horrible. I booked a room with queen beds and I was given a double, not happy at all. However, here I was very happy, was given the type of room I booked. I will most likely try and... More

From the rates of hotels in the Tampa area, this by far is the best value for the money. Staff was very friendly and professional, rooms very clean, updated and comfortable. Felt very safe. I was surprised because of the quality of the hotel in this area. I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

We pulled into the parking lot and thought, oh no! But were we in for a pleasant surprise. Brandy and the staff were very accommodating. Some of the furniture was a little outdated and in need of replacement; however, the room was clean. WalMart was in walking distance - would stay again

Arrived at approximately 4:30 PM, for a 3:00 check in. So, how come our room was not cleaned, stocked with towels, and ready for us? I shudder to think at what would have happened if we arrived at 3 PM on the dot. Really? Rooms should be ready at, if not before, check in time. Booked the hotel through Booking.com... More
