Is an old motel but room was very clean and so were bed linens and towels. Room was attended to each day of our 4 day stay. Only con was could hear guests in upstairs room walking. Breakfast could be better with hot items since so many motels are now serving hot breakfasts.

Not worth the $71. Perhaps $29.95 wouls have been OK. Sink stopper broken. Sheets stained. Mold in shower.

I should have read these reviews BEFORE I stayed at this hotel. Years ago, someone posted a picture of graffiti on a bathroom wall about wanting a "real man." Well...I am here to tell you that it is STILL there. We told the front desk about it when we checked out and they acted like it was the first time...

We had tickets to the Outback Bowl and reserved rooms here online due to its proximity to the stadium. When we first pulled up were a little dubious, but the lobby was nicely decorated. Staff was friendly and helpful and the areas back of the street were all freshly painted. Even though you could tell it was an older motel,...

I was pleasantly surprised by the accommodations. This is an older motel style building, but the rooms have been kept up well and everything was in good working order

If your only goal in Tampa is to have a locking door to keep your things while you go to a football game, then this is your place. If you plan to hit the tailgating hard and stumble back and sleep it off before catching a flight or driving home, this place is perfect. Don't expect much in terms of...

We booked through an online website (can't remember which one) but probably won't do that again. Disappointed not to get any Wyndom points. The bed was comfortable, the air conditioner was a bit loud, but probably drowned out the street noise. Fridge and microwave available as was free Wi-Fi. The area had a Denny's, Wendy's, and Sweet Tomatoes within walking...
