The smell of the cigarette was very strong. It was supposed to be a non-smoking room. The drawers were falling apart, chair and carpet were dirty, telephone was not working. Breakfast was not good....

Pool needs more attention , there was not enough chairs at the pool even though there is plenty of room for more. There also was ants everywhere in the pool area so maybe some spraying would help. Overall the hotel and staff was great but the pool area seems neglected. Even the pool itself had stuff floating in it like...

nobody inspected the room after the prior dogs left.....fleas. There were no other pet friendly rooms available so I had to stay in that room - scratching! Luckily, my dog has flea protection. The beds were comfortable, room was clean other than the fleas. I would stay there again but in a room where there have been no pets

The hotel room was dingy and very small, with piles of dust in the corners and under the sink which was located outside the bathroom. The bathroom featured rust stains around the toilet,...

I stayed here for the dog show at the fairgrounds. I found the rooms very much met my needs. The staff was very nice and the rooms were clean. I will stay here again when i come to the shows next year.

Not up to par with other LQ Inns and Suites. No frequent guest items given and breakfast was minimal. Side door entrance was not functioning and had to go through main entrance for everything, when we were at the end of the hotel

We stayed here in May and was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Room access being inside the building was wonderful. The pool was clean. The rooms were decent. It was a great price as well. The room above us ended up flooding and coming down into our room shortly before our check out. Due to this happening they have is...

Older property but kept in excellent condition. Liked by businessmen, truckers, and others looking for a reasonably priced very clean & well-run hotel. Our favorite in this price class & located immediately across from the Tampa Fair Grounds.
