4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was my first time staying at a Howard Johnson. My room was clean, service friendly, and the hotel was quiet. My only complaint was that the furniture could probably use another coat of paint or updating! Other than that I was comfortable and happy with my stay!

I was pleasantly surprised with this property and mentioned several times during my stay how I would stay there again whenever I came back to Tampa. 40 minutes from the Rays, 15-20 min from the zoo, aquarium, riverwalk, etc. A lot of different places to eat and stores around, but still a quiet area. Our room was clean and comfy,... More

We enjoyed ourselves and it wasn't far from where we needed to be and a close drive to Busch Gardens and Adventure... More
