My friends and I have been coming to this hotel for years. It's a great place to stay. It's been around since 1952 and the same family runs it. I enjoy the pool and the fact it's open to the public. It makes for a lively time around the pool and pool bar. I agree with the previous reviewer, the... More

This has all the bones of being a wonderful little boutique hotel and once was. We stayed in one the original rooms, it was clean and neat. The room was equipped with a frig, coffeemaker and microwave. The housekeeping staff, that I met were very hospitable and helpful. The café staff were great, especially Stephanie, and the food is yummy... More

Better than expected. This establishment was perfectly located in the heart of a well established neighborhood. With a Chick Filet next store, a WAWA 3 blocks away and many fine restaurants in a 5 minute drive. Ybor City, 2 Aquarium near by. The 60 yr old hotel was immaculate when it came to the room and spa services. Staff all... More

I actually didn't book this hotel on purpose. The room was provided for me due to my flight being switched to the next day. The staff were very nice and helpful even though the reservation hadn't gotten into the system yet. They set my sister and I up in a room with two beds which was nice because the airline... More

I have nothing nice to say about this hotel. The supervisor was rude and not helpful at all. I do not recommend this hotel even if you are in a budget. This is not a boutique style hotel but a motel. M

The decor was strange and somewhat dated. We spent most of our free time at the Tiki Cafe out by the pool where the staff could not be more ready to help with whatever we needed or that they imagined we might need, Lots of children enjoying the pool.

I would recommend this hotel. It has free parking, the pool area & tiki bar were well maintained. The office staff was excellent & very helpful. Our original room was near pool, outside doors. It was nice & clean. My young son & I got complaints of noise but we were either in bed, the shower or on the phone.... More

We stayed in the main building and the room was extremely nice. Tile floors, tub with jets, walk in shower, and a cute balcony. Very nice decor and comfy bed. The front desk was very friendly as well. I will definitely book this hotel again for a mini vacation in my own town.
