The front desk staff was great! They were friendly and got me checked in very fast with no problems. However, the housekeeping staff is another story. They are very sneaky. Please be careful of them cause they will go in your room even if you tell them not to (I requested 3x not to have any housekeeping services for my room but the housekeeper came in my room anyways). We believe my cousin's clothes were stolen from her room by a housekeeper, so if you decide to stay at this hotel, please don't travel with expensive items and be sure that you check your belongings daily especially before you check-out of the hotel. The breakfast wasn't all that. The oatmeal was watery every morning that we were there. The bed wasn't comfortable. I woke up with a back ache every morning but overall my room was clean upon arrival and even after I requested no housekeeping services. There was mold on the carpet in the hallways. Be careful not to take the stairway unless you have to because there aren't any cameras for your protection. The pool/pool area is small, as well as the gym area too.

Dear Maps46495406119, Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write this review. With all due respect, I kindly encourage you to speak with your cousin about what exactly happened here. The truth is, we shipped your cousin a bag full of items that she left here one day after she checked out of our hotel. When the bag arrived to her, her allegation was not all of the items were in there. We had no way of verifying what she allegedly purchased and claimed she left at our hotel. We can only verify what we found in the guestroom, after her departure. I personally spoke with her. In addition, as an act of goodwill, I compensated her for what she alleged were the value of the items not shipped to her. We care about all of our guests and will do everything within reason to ensure they know that. However, calling our housekeeping team members "sneaky" and advising other travelers to check their belongings daily for fear that, someone here might steal something, is uncalled for, but most importantly, an absolute false representation of the events that transpired here. We appreciate all of our guest’s feedback. Moreover, I consider it an honor to personal engage with all of our guests on social media platforms. The only thing these platforms ask for, especially TripAdvisor, is honesty. I give you the benefit of the doubt that you did not know all the details of this situation. Regarding your perception of our security measures, it is not accurate. We do not have mold on our carpets in the hallways, and our breakfast attendant personally makes a special recipe oatmeal, that many of our guests love. However, we also have the individual oatmeal packets available in the breakfast area for those who want to make their own oatmeal. We have forty items in our breakfast area for our guests to choose from. We appreciate anyone who takes the time to write a review about us. We only ask that it be honest. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly with any questions, concerns, or any additional feedback. We sincerely thank you and your family for being our guests. We truly hope you will give us the opportunity to be your hotel of choice again, during your next visit to Tampa. All my best, Mario

Nice and easy check in/ check out. Room was clean, comfortable beds, and spacious. Very close to USF and Theme Parks. Plenty of restaurants in the area. They offered a free shuttle service to theme parks and nearby shops. Will definitely be booking here again.

Very clean and the staff was fantastic, van service a true pleasure, and the choices of places to eat off the chain, Long horn just down the main street was great, Rib Eye and Lobster tails the true way to roll, and the welcome when you get back is swell
